Tucked away at the airport is a little oasis with excellent accommodation in the airport which doubles as a flight school.... with clean rooms overlooking the runway it makes a wonderful change from the trucks on the N1.

An airfield mixed with a guesthouse, very convenient if you arrive by your own plane. The rooms are partly shabby and need renovations. The dinner is available only with pre booking and particular without any selection. Unfortunately the nearest restaurant is more than 5km away.

We stayed over at Karoo Gateway for 1 night. Very friendly service and excellent food. Although this lovely hotel is situated next to a runway of a flying school, we did not experience any inconvenience. It was something else watching the small planes practising to take off and land. Good value for money

After a long days flying I was very happy to land at the Karoo Gateway Guesthouse. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff helpful. It is a bit pricy though for what you get - Avgas not cheap! Great for pilots who want to get away early the next morning as you are on the field. 4 of...

We stopped over in this B&B which is situated on the airfield. It was quite pricy for what we got (breakfast we paid for perhaps was also a little overpriced and the coffee was really bad). On the website it stated that the old control tower was a bar, which it isn't- so that was a little disappointing.

Quite frankly a disaster . Rooms noisy with old air cons beating their drums thoughout the night.

The whole set up is interesting and great to enjoy as a over night stop, which probably irritates the b&b,people just using us as a hop in hop out option, but when it rains you fill the buckets. The place was clean and had a great setting, but I noticed we ate alone of all the guests that evening of...
