What a pleasure to stay at the Tuishuise. We were accommodated in one of the spacious historic family homes strung along the street that have been described as national treasures. Our house was named after Queen Victoria and her portrait was hanging opposite the fireplace in the lounge. She is not amused when guests misbehave. We has several bedrooms and...

If the Victorian hotel on the corner is not already a surprise, wait until you get the key to your own "huisje". Beautifully restored and furnished in various old styles. It is like traveling back in time.

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the "Tuishuise"self catering houses. The rooms were very large and spacious, and really managed to capture the essence of small old town living. The place was clean, and well equipped. My family and I greatly enjoyed our short stop over stay in Cradock.

This place was just awesome. The rooms, the service, the food and the ambiance were really something special. If there is a better place to stay in the Karoo, I haven't found it yet. I recommend the Tuinhuise for anyone planning to stay over I Cradock

Die Tuishuise felt like an experience as much as a guesthouse stay. Walking past the rows of cottages made being there feel like something different and special right from the start. Our cottage (Die Werf) had 3 bedrooms just for the two of us and was huge, with comfortable furnishings and unique decorations. It was much more space than we...

Die Tuishuise are about 30 cottages down the street from the Victoria Manor that have been restored and filled with antiques, but they're still very functional. It was living in a museum! They have lots of books about explaining the history and karoo culture. The cottage itself was great -- we had four rooms to ourselves in a house. We...

We spent two nights at the Tuishuise and were very impressed. The house we stayed in (Mays) was so special and one can see a lot of thought has gone into the decor and furnishings. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the food was exceptional! Thanks guys!
