Camdeboo Cottages
Reviewed 14 February 2016

We stayed in cottage 4, which was very dated and old fashioned. The kitchen and bathroom aren't stylishly old, just old and the furniture is very similar. The shower head leaks all over the place, you have to turn the hot shower tap at least 3 times before the water comes out. We had booked the cottage as it had two bedrooms and we were travelling with small children, unfortunately the doors to the bedrooms didn't close which made the place very noisy. We had the breakfast which was fine but nothing special, there are a couple of places at the end of the road which do much nicer. I am not sure if we just got one of the poorer cottage but it looked nothing like the photos on here.

On a positive note the staff were very helpful, the free wifi worked throughout the hotel, the car park was very secure and the pool area clean and tidy. The braai spots around the pool were also nice.

Room Tip: Not cottage 4

A pleasant well situated and comfortable cottage was our base for a long weekend in January when we detoured to Graf-Reinett on our way to Cape Town.

Friendly helpful staff and a safe and secure yard and garden for our little bot, tea-cup Yorkie, Mossie really helped make our stay a pleasure at a reasonable cost.

We stayed in the cottages for two nights and were not disappointed with our choice. Our first impression of the accommodation was how gloomy it was inside and this was heightened by the traditional furniture. But that's the point – the owners are maintaining the authenticity of historical buildings. We welcomed the fact that the rooms were cool as a result and soon got used to the lack of light.
The pool area is a feature of the cottages. The pool is well maintained with a paved area and a lawn for sun loungers.

Room Tip: If you like things light and airy the cottages are probably not for you.

Camdeboo cottages is a nice overnight stay, pool area is pretty and refreshing, just what you need to wash off the Karoo dust. Good beds, clean room and air conditioning. All in all a good stay. Thanx

Me and my wife over night at the Camdeboo cottages in December 2015 and enjoyed it from the service and the nice location to the cleanliness of the rooms and bathroom. We will definitely visit the Camdeboo cottages again and can recommend it for travellers.

Staying at Camdeboo Cottages was not part of our original JHB - Garden route - JHB trip but out of all our stops Camdeboo came as a pleasant surprise and was definitely the highlight of our trip. What a gorgeous place! The rooms are clean, the service is top class, the food is devine, value for money - I have already recommended this facility to family and friends.
