This charming hotel offers the most vital ingredient: warm, old-fashioned Karoo hospitality.

The 15 rooms are all completely individual in character, some with beautiful views overlooking the village. Quirky, relaxed and comfortable, the Karoo Art Hotel offers its guests old-fashioned Karoo hospitality, a country experience with a twist that includes interesting artwork and colourful décor. Whichever room you choose you get that extra quality that counts: top quality mattresses, soft percale linen, piping hot showers. With the exception of the Garden Suite, all rooms are located on the first floor, some with views from balconies overlooking the village or garden. Other in-room facilities: In-room bathrooms with shower and bath or shower only, fans, gas heaters, electric blankets, hair dryers, telephones, WiFi and tea and coffee facilitates.

The Klein Karoo Gourmand Award winning restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serves great country food with a Klein Karoo twist. The seasonally influenced A La Carte Menu features authentic Klein Karoo dishes including a few signature dishes such as Karoo Lamb Chops, Lamb/Ostrich Casseroles or the famous Karoo Lamb and Venison Pies. Guests will find a comprehensive wine list - winner of the Diners Club Wine List Diamond Award ! - offering quality wines from the Klein Karoo region. The hotel is a member of the international food guild Chaine des Rotisseurs and has established itself as one of the most popular lunch stops for travellers on the Route 62, offering a true Klein Karoo food & wine experience.

Guests love sharing a drink at the bar which is still the social heart of the village, and has been since 1888. There is often live music evenings in the bar that attract a small, diverse, friendly crowd of young and old. Our Gardens and large swimming pool are perfect for those hot summer days and the lounge with fireplace invites a glass of Klein Karoo port during winter months.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
