"Beautiful house, wonderful service!"

By Catherine, South Africa
"We arrived late in the evening and had to leave early the next morning. The Tuishuise staff were friendly and helpful despite the late hour, and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The house we stayed in (Number 50) was clean and well appointed, and it was full of interesting historical pieces. We would certainly stay there again!"

"We asked to be moved to a room with a king bed and they gave us a very pretty cottage, gave us fresh milk and heaters. We were very comfortable. The restaurant is beautifully old-fashioned and the food is good, In a two week trip I still don't get the excitement over Karoo lamb chops!!! The staff were very helpful and friendly, and it was pleasant to chat to the owner over a glass of sherry!"

"First appearance is deceiving, once inside is another matter, Old world chard of days gone by most of it original, Restoration - a lot of thought gone into it to keep bygone years alive. But for me it was a little over the top and one or two nights would be enough for me, but must admit beds are really comfortable,linen very clean and the cottages extremely well equipped,spacious and clean. Lovely staff,, good atmosphere throughout the hotel and excellent meals - really good value for money. Absolutely no complaints at all."
"Good overnighter"

"Friendly staff, good breakfast/dinner. The cottages needs a bit of maintenance, but still good for the price. If they could have the street closed off and made into a parking and leisure area it would be great. Street feels a bit unsafe and detracts form the olde world experience."
"Great one night stay"
