We spent a lovely weekend here. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The host and hostess made us feel so very welcome. The owner is clearly passionate about her work and it shows in the warm friendly atmosphere. Her willingness to phone her husband to bring us some over the counter medicine which we needed was heart warming. The...

Having been on the road for six hours, all I had wanted was a room for the night. What a lovely surprise! Situated right on Route 62, it might not look like much but pleasantly surprised with size and cleanliness of rooms (stayed in room #2), EXCELLENT food from the little kitchen and .... at last .... the South African...

What a great find! Awesome location, scrumptious food, friendly service and a very cool New Year's party! All at a very reasonable price. The perfect stop to break up your travel along the famous Route 62 in the Klein Karoo

We stopped in Barrydale for the night and were looking for a good place to eat and to spend the night. We found Watercourt and it offered very quiet rooms, excellent service, good food, drinks and most of all some very nice people that really make an effort to help you. We would recommend it for sure.

My wife and I stopped in en route and found the place welcoming and friendly staff. Good value and I would stay again. Food was holesome but plain. Barydale is not an exciting place - but as a stop over in this B&B - we enjoyed it

We were warmly welcomed by Lisle-Anne, and throughout our stay she made sure we were always happy! All her staff were very friendly too. Bed was most comfortable and the room very quiet and cosy. We had a lovely weekend and were looked after very well.

We experienced the most caring and personal service at Watercourt lodge from Lisle-Ann and her family. I am following a gluten free / vegetarian diet and Lisle-Ann provided everything I needed - nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very comfortable and on a cold night we had an electric blanket and extra blanket on the beds made up...

We received such excellent service from Lisle-Ann and Barend, the owners of the Watercourt Lodge. They went absolutely out of their way to make us comfortable. The room, although very simple, was very clean and comfortable. Lisle-Ann is an excellent chef and prepared a meal that was as good as any meal in a top class restaurant. I can definitely...
