We never stayed overnight but I checked out a couple of the rooms and would happily have settled in for the night The proprietors are friendly - country-style folk and even though we were only window-shopping in their deli & general dealer area, they could,not have been more helpful and courteous.

B autiful and stylish. Was impressed with hand ground coffee. R40 for 4 blocks of fudge were a bit expensive. More suited for adults.

The Country Store looks like a normal padstal type of store but just behind it is a hidden gem - Country Stay. We had the loveliest loft room, it was so cozy - we really felt at home! Had an awesome breakfast the next morning as well. Do yourself a favour and stay over at Country Stay!

We popped into this delightful shop, a tad expensive for us locals, but delightful all the same. The antiques on offer from by-gone days a real treat for the Collector. The back yard and guest house (I think) was done in true Karoo style decor and took one back in time.

Knitted children's toys found for over R100 less just 3 blocks down. And yellow peaches (Isabel's) which retail for R78 elsewhere are priced at R119. And the pricing of the antiques and collectibles bears no resemblance to the market. Although you will find a lovely selection of products, expect to overpay.

ColleenPrinceAlbert, Owner at Prince Albert Country Store, responded to this review

Dear BizTravellerSA, What a pity that social media reviews, accurate or not, have the potential to damage hard-earned reputations. Our peaches sell for R85.00, not R119.00. We travel 340km(4hrs) to fetch them, to make available in this town a few really worthwhile products. An extra R7.00 per bottle seems pretty reasonable to me. Our knitted bunnies are worth every cent... More

Other than spending a small fortune on the wonderful goods that this store has to offer - baked goods, preserves etc. we had breakfast here as well. Very cozy courtyard next to the pool where breakfast is served - best breakfast in town and according to the owner also serves the best carrot cake in the world - although we... More

Popped in, attracted by the array of wares on display outside. The stoep welcomes with a few tables and the interior abounds with jams, preserves, trinkets to purchase as well as some really good antique pieces. The costume antique jewellery is also very tempting and the staff are in attendance but not overwhelming. Don't expect to leave without a purchase... More

Beautifully laid out display of various well-selected crockery, glassware, books, furniture and knick-knacks. Plus great take home treats like fudge and fruit cake!

A most interesting store filled with old world goodies, silverware from days gone buy, antique furniture, many books and collctibles.A great experience, but not all. They also do amazing breakfasts, coffee, teas and wonderful light lunches. Don't miss this gem.
