The facilities (kingsize bed, bathroom ets) were awesome. The entire layout and positioning of the guest house was perfect. The gardens were well keps and most enjoyable to sit in and relax. Breakfast was great with most of the fruit from the gardens too. Will most definitely be back again!

Excellent. Spacious clean rooms, a great pool and staff that went out of their way to ensure you enjoyed your stay. The bed was also fantastic...extra large with crisp sheets and it felt brand new. Best bacon for years. Loved it

Friendly owners and large room with clean linen does unfortunately not qualify this establishment to retain a 9.1 TripAdvisor rating it achieved in 2014! More like 6.1 to my mind.The place is in need of maintenance and refurbishment.We stayed for two nights. Pity no dinner available on both Thursday and Friday nights.

Hi Wicus, Reading all of the Karoo Lodge's recent reviews prior to yours, this surely stand alone in criticism.

Many of the lovely buildings seem to date back to Victorian times and the town is very tranquil. Our stay was only one night but we enjoyed...

The hosts are very kind and helpful! The room is big, clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the big garden and the pool. Absolutely quiet accomodation. Also the breakfast was great: Müsli, joghurt, eggs, bacon, bread, juice, fruits. Just great!

This was our second visit to Prince Albert and we were lucky to get a room at Karoo Lodge. It turned out to be the perfect place. Friendly and helpful hosts, spacious room in a beautiful garden, comfortable beds and an sumptuous breakfast. Couldn´t have been better. The kind of place that you really want to come back to.
