We were only able to spend one night at Calitzdorp Station, but this was enough to convince us to return soon! We opted for a camping spot and had our own tent. The facilities are great and the owner is very helpful. It's tranquil and beautiful and such a gem of a find!

After a fairly long and testy motorbike ride over the amazing Swartberg pass we were delighted and very fortunate to get the 'station room' - spacious and clean and comfortable. Cheryl went the extra mile and opened the bar for three weary riders for some ice cold beers. Plus great restaurant suggestions. Great stay and will definitely book again. Congratulations...

Lovely double bed in a spacious tent with superb facilities available including a pool, ablutions, bar and a braai of your choice, and for those who forgot to bring the necessary items for camping and cooking a very well kitted out kitchen with everything available, tongs, plates, cups...

Calitzdorp in itself is a very unexpected surprise for what looks just another small town. It's far beyond that. We fell in love with this little town. Calitzdorp station is just the same - unique and you just fall in love with it. We stayed in the tent. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. Communal bathrooms were also clean and...

Great camping sites with the old railway station and tracks one side and the cliffs the other side. Neat grossed camping sites with individual electrical points and shared water points. Ablution facilities were clean with plenty of hot water and soap dispensers and towels next to the wash hand basins. Within walking distance of De Krans wine estate, famous for...

The Ticket Office is a great room. Spacious and well appointed. The welcome was warm and genuine and the bar is relaxed, cheap and well stocked. The station itself is brilliant and will get the "little boy" inside of any guy exited about living in a train station. From stepping over the train tracks to playing with the trolley carts...

“We stayed in the tents -- a great treat and highly recommended as the night air is wonderful. But there are beautifully appointed rooms as well if preferred.”
