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 were accommodated In small individual cottages and houses, quaintly decorated and furnished with old antique furniture. Everything you need plus a powerful aircon.

Great and special place to stay. We stayed in Annies. Very friendly staff and food is very good. Annies is half of a cottage with a separate bedroom, a combines well equipment kitchen and sitting room. Outside is a Braai facility, which we did not use. The cottage was clean and in a very good condition. Even the beds are... More

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... More

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!

We stayed only one night (in Knegtekamer, which is too charming for words) but could easily have stayed longer. Alta and Marina attended to our every needs, brought us breakfast in our room as it was Pearl's birthday (and threw in some bubbles!) and made us feel like very special guests. We had dinner there and found the food to... More

We stayed a couple of nights at Hantam Huis. The room was old-fashioned in decor but perfectly comfortable - really good mattress on the bed plus self-catering facilities. One night was a bit cold, and there was a very efficient wall heater in the sitting area plus a very good air con unit in the bedroom, so we were able... More
