I would highly recommend the African Relish Cottages. They have been beautifully decorated and are very comfortable for a small family. They are centrally located yet in a peaceful setting with a little garden to enjoy your morning coffee.

I've stayed in a cottage from african relish multiple times. It's always such a nice calming experience. The cottages have character (combi modern and romantic), are clean and have everything you need. Little touches like linnen bathrobes give a luxurious feel. I always love to stay at a cottage of african relish , they give you the real karoo experience....

We stayed in the 2-bedroom house named 'Akkedis'. The house was beautifully decorated, well equipped and very clean. We were very impressed with the authenticity of the decor of the house and also with the little town of Prince Albert.

Having booked a couple of days at the African Relish Cooking School in Prince Albert we had the opportunity to stay at Doringbos Cottage, which was very clean and neat, possibly the first self catering accommodation where you were supplied with tea, coffee and fresh milk in the cottage. The cottage also has...

Very peaceful and beautifully furnished little Cottages. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Very central but absolutely quiet at night. We will definitely come back. Only thing I would change are shutters also in the small bedroom.

In the heart of the village our two cottages were comfortable, cool with the bedroom aircon, and relaxing on the garden stoep. Well-equipped for short stays - cook in the kitchen or on the braai. Short walk to many super restaurants.
