We just had an overnight stay en route from Bloemfontein to Mossel bay. At arrival we were upgraded from a room to a cottage at no extra cost. The cottage was beautiful and comfortable with everything we needed and more. We definitely recommend Profcon.

Het soos n baba geslaap.
We arrived in a camper van and set up in the gardens together with our tent. What an absolute fantastic timer we had. Our two grandchildren were kept busy with all the entertainment available for them (swimming pool, mini golf) and all the other equipment laid out to keep children entertained. The staff were extremely friendly, even go so far to say the animals (dogs, cat, chickens, ducks, and a bunny all ran around in perfect harmony). What a lovely relaxing place to stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
We had a nice room, well maintained and appointed. Bathroom clean, shower worked well. Short walk to the historic centre and shopping. There is a pool and other amenities we did not get a chance to use.
Profcon is a very ugly name (consider changing it, Profcon People), but we found it to be a very reasonably priced, well-appointed resort that exceeded our expectations. There is a pool, kids' play area with two (tame) zip lines that our kids enjoyed and a jumping castle (though the play area is mostly best for younger kids), putt-putt, and DSTV. The kids had their own room and there was a kitchen.
It is a fairly large resort that includes a camp-site area, so it can get quite busy. It is probably not the best place if peace and quiet is top of your list.
The town of Graaff-Reinet is incredibly beautiful and definitely worth a visit.
We were less excited about the valley of desolation. It offers a great view of the town and surrounding hills, though it was not unmissable. We saw none of the animals that allegedly reside there, and it was a somewhat over-rated experience at the price. Worth doing if you are not feeling budget conscious.
On the negative side, there is good wifi if you are close to the source, but signal was weak and intermittent in our room. There is DSTV (Mnet and sport channels), though our TV only got one of the promised bouquet of Mnet channels (and I spent ages skipping through hundreds of blocked channels wondering if any of them would work; it would help frustration levels if they were removed entirely). The water was quite brackish to our taste, so consider bringing your own drinking water.
On the whole, the positives far outweigh the negatives.
We really enjoyed our stay at Profcon Resort and will make use of the facility again in the future.
Profcon is a lovely resort in Graaff Reinet. Great for families, a lot of activities for the children. Never a dull moment while travelling.
As you all know , graaff reinet is a small town, with not much to do. But we defanatly enjoyed our stay at profcon. Will defanatly see us again!
