Hospitality at it's best

"Greeted with incredible warmth and friendliness. Will definitly be back. An ideal stopover on the way to Cape Town."

Collette, Johannesburg

Excellent stay with warm hospitality

"We had an excellent stay with very friendly hospitality. Room with very warm and cosy bedding with a small kitchenette. Got very good advice from the host where to visit what in and around town. So much to see, it is actually worth staying a couple of days."

Aleda S

Warm hospitality and a beautiful place to stay.

"We arrived last minute at this guesthouse and were greeted with a very warm welcome. The guesthouse itself is a beautiful building elegantly and tastefully decorated. The gardens are also a delight with a crystal clear swimming pool which I'm sure you can use in the summer (not quite warm enough when we stayed). We were very happy to spend the night in such beautiful surroundings. The room was spacious and the complimentary sherry much appreciated. A good spread was put on for breakfast. I can't sing the praises of this place enough - I highly recommend it.PS our hostess pointed out the Polka restaurant, which is owned by her sister, the food is great and the cakes heavenly. "

Superb accommodation in beautiful historical building

"We loved our stay at Buiten Verwagten. Our room was gorgeous with all you would expect from the 4 star rating. We particularly enjoyed the gorgeous garden, swimming pool and the gym was a welcome addition. Service was friendly and prompt. Our hosts and their staff made for a friendly, warm experience. We highly recommend Buiten Verwagten - it certainly is on par with any similarly rated accommodation overseas."

A perfect stay in this wonderful historical town

"After quite a long drive down from Johannesburg we were greeted by the friendly owners and immediately advised to drop our bags and head straight up to the Valley of Desolation - a must do trip if you are in Graaff-Reinet, especially for sundowners. Buiten Verwagten is a delightful Bamp;B with excellent amenities (nice pool, gym) and is perfectly well situated - not even 2 minutes walk from nearby restaurants. The rooms are each individually styled and are very cosy. There are several entrances in and out of the main building so you never actually feel as though you are in someones house as you can in some places we have stayed. The breakfast was typical Bamp;B fare but delicious all the same. We will be back! "

Empfehlenswertes Guest House

"Wir waren dort für eine Nacht, hatten ein großes Zimmer mit einer kleinen Küchenzeile. Garten und Pools sind sehr schön angelegt, einer liegt noch in der Abendsonne. Typisches Frühstück, wenn auch eher von der weniger üppigen Form (Käse abgepackt, Wurst keine). Auch das Haus selbst ist wunderschön! Kurzer Fußweg zu Restaurants, keine 5 Minuten."
