The room is big enough if you are planning on staying only a night or two. Please keep in mind that the room is not self-catering!...

I had a wonderful stay in this stunning region of SA enjoying the company and hospitality of the owners. There is a fireplace and a beautiful garden where you can relax. ..coming from an urban environment, Robertson was an oasis of peace and quiet. I highly recommend a stay.

Robertson Backpackers is excellent value for money, situated on the northern outskirts of town. I stayed in the six bunk dorm, but the property offers private rooms also. All the amenities are clean tidy and comfortable. The garden offers a peaceful retreat with a braai facility, the secure parking gives peace of mind. There is a recently installed swimming pool...
