The beds were extremely comfortable and it is very quiet and peaceful at night. There is a lovely stoep/patio overlooking the mountain and veld behind. They have a comfy lounge and bar. The...

This place was awesome for backpackers. It was beautiful and had a lot of character. The room was comfortable and very clean and there were tons of places to sit and mingle with other backpackers if you wanted. The pool was beautiful and they had birds on the property that made the place sound magical. It was quiet at night...

Dave and Bella were wonderful hosts, and this is a great facility! Our room was clean and comfortable, and there great options around the property for sitting and talking with others in groups or for individual conversations, as needed! I would look forward to going back and spending another week at Old Vic's!

We just wrapped up a 4 day stay with a large group (50 of us). Dave and Bella and their staff were phenomenal! They bent over backwards to help us with everything from taxis to food recommendations to which clinic to go to - you name it, they had the best information! I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We...

We expected a bad experience based on the reviews we read, but to out surprise it wasn't that bad, or rather it didn't bother us much because we were always out we just went back to sleep. Yes they don't allow alcohol in the premises, and they have rules like any other place however they're not as rigid as we...

Old Vic Travellers Inn is well maintained with dorm beds in cramped rooms (R160) and ensuite rooms (R 460). The large outdoor area has tables and a open-sided thatched area. The communal kitchen could use the addition of utensils/pots/pans and the shared bathroom can certainly do with a lot of TLC. The biggest drawback is the location, far from the...

Backpackers style, lots of rules in the property, the manager isn't very flexible. The rooms are ok, the number of bathrooms to dormitories isn't sufficient and the not enough facilities. Have free parking.
