We arrived in Carnarvon via the R386 dirt road from Prieska, dusty and tired and without accommodation. The guest house signs pointed us to the Boer war officers mess, where a quaint grey and white house stood on a quite street. Pieter arrived promptly and gave a us a room, it was comfortable and spotless with secure parking. We had dinner at his restaurant which was a short walk away, and being where we were, we were served the most fabulous lamb, paired with some great red wine. We enjoyed everything about our stop over in Carnarvon, and would most certainly return and would not stay anywhere else. Well done Pieter and your great team.

Rooms spacious and well decorated. Had good heating and comfortable blankets. The bathroom was neat and clean. Breakfast was well portioned and served in style. Will most definitely be back soon as doing work there for a while. Have also booked all our staff here if they travel to Carnarvon. Evening meal was just as nice in the owners own restaurant. Nice steak.

Room tip: All the rooms are nice

This little gem really surprised me. Filled with some beautiful Victorian furnishings and of course the history of the house.
Well sized rooms, comfortable beds and was very clean.
Our host Pieter was lovely. We had breakfast included which was very good and just what we needed to load us ready for the rest of the trip.

My only crit and it is a very tiny one, by this time I was getting desperate for some real coffee. The breakfast only had the option of instant coffee and no fresh coffee - But this could possibly have been that this particular day there was only us and another couple staying over.

The restaurant a block away is along side the Lord Carnarvon Hotel, called Lord Carnarvon's Kitchen. The lamb was fantastic. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the shank. Both done very well in the way only the people living in the Karoo know how too. If you are not staying over night, I recommend you pop in for your taste of Karoo Lamb.

What a pleasant surprise to be welcomed by the friendly staff and taken into the tastefully furnished and decorated rooms...affordable pricing, safe parking and an excellent supper at the nearby Lord's Restaurant completes the picture. I recommend Lord Carnarvon to everyone who admires and appreciates quality, good taste and friendly service.
