We absolutely loved our stay at the Garden Cottage. It was super clean, the shower's water pressure is excellent, the bed is comfy and has good quality bedding & the fireplace draws well. Wood for the fireplace & charcoal for the weber can be purchased from the SPAR around the corner. There is no off-street parking but our vehicle was safe at all times, while parked in the Street. We also felt very safe during our stay at the Cottage. Although Nilene was not on site when we arrived, she provided us with clear instructions for a self-check-in. The wi-fi was quite iffy but it was no major train smash as we did not need it for work related issues. There is a Safe haven for children next to the property and the laughter of the happy kiddies often filled the air. The Garden Cottage is an absolute GEM and good value for money - it was everything we needed for a relaxing get away!!

Superb. 5 out of 5

We had a comfortable overnight stay in the beautifully appointed Garden Cottage. Nilene was so helpful in recommending places to eat within easy walking distance. We loved unwinding on the bench in the private garden after a long drive through the dry Karoo. So grateful to be able to park in their garage so we could leave most of our stuff in the car. Will definitely stay there again when in Graaff Reinet! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Picturesque town, Reinet House Museum is a great stop, dinner at Pioneers, Nieu Bethesda to see the Owl House is worth the drive.
