Do not drive through Calvinia without having breakfast at this beautiful restored house. Easy to spot in the main street, this is such a treat to visit.Creaking wooden floors, home made jams etc -- it is like stepping into the past. The breakfast was excellent -- do come hungry! Try the " skilpadjies" -- sooo delicious. Fresh juice and coffee...

Make sure to visit and view all the artifacts on display. The house is completely restored and used as restaurant and guest house. Light meals for breakfast and lunch. Many antique items dating from 1900s on display.

Our group consisted of 15 couples and all accommodated in in venue. Owners provided an excellent lamb on the spit braai for our crowd at their private dwelling next door. Wonderful hospitality. Outstanding breakfast with unique meals at their restaurant which is a short walking distance away.

We have stayed over twice and both times we have experienced friendly, warm, helpful service. The accommodation is comfortable and the rooms clean. The dinners, however, are what stand out for me. Fresh ingredients with interesting interpretations of traditional Karoo fare.

Hantum Huis has a reception and restaurant in a restored old house and accommodation in an old house about 100m down the road. The rooms are furnished in the old style and each one is different. The over all effect is very present. Restaurant meals and service are good.

Whoever decided to paint the dining room of the Hantam-huis a shrieking and shiny dark green should be incarcerated in an asylum. The house has been extensively renovated and refurbished in its original style, which is praiseworthy. But then they painted the dining room, already suffering from a lack of light, this terrible green. This is surely not how it...

I was given a lovely heritage house to stay in with a wonderfully high bed that needed me to take a run at it to land on the mattress!! Good breakfast - dinner not so good. Lovely owner and daughter, both of whom did their utmost to help make my stay memorable. Thank you both.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hantam Huis in Calvinia. Stayed here a few times already and keep coming back. I am a coffee drinker and therefore really appreciate the plunger and coffee provided in the rooms. Breakfast are something to write home about, love the skilpadjies!
