Stayed for three nights. Reinette is a wonderful, welcoming hostess. Lovely clean,spacious room with all that we needed. Great tranquil location in a beautiful street, near to all the places of interest. You can have a good breakfast at Somerset Stables but it is optional, which gives flexibility. There is an excellent restaurant for dinner and super coffee shop in...

This is an amazing place to stay, and it is not really a place for the quick stopover. If you stay, you should allow two or more days to get the feeling of this place. It is full of lovely items, of the feeling to be welcome and you feel relaxed from the beginning, if you allow yourself to switch...

Reinette has made an incredible effort to make this B&B welcoming, homely and very comfortable. We spent 2 nights in the honeymoon suite (an upgrade!). Location is perfect - just a few minutes to the main road and great places to eat - secure parking, airconditioning for the hot days - and it can get VERY HOT in Graaff-Reinette! A...

An excellent B&B with nicely decorated and very clean and comfortable room. But it was the owner Ms Reinette Naude who impressed us so much. Our son and his fiancee decided to drive back from Cape Town to Joburg at the last minute and they simply couldn'd find a single room in Graaff Rienet on Dec 17. Ms Naude tried...

Very comfortable B&B with a charming and interesting owner manager (Reinette) on hand to assist and advise you regarding where to eat dinner (Pioneer) or have afternoon tea (Polka). Accommodation clean and comfortable - and decor bursting with interesting and quirky ornaments and memorabilia. Breakfast was good. Convenient safe parking inside the establishment. Wifi available.
