This hotel consists of a group of restored cottages around a beautiful old house. All properties have been sympathetically restored and furnished with as many original features being maintained as possible. The staff are friendly and welcoming and it was a pleasure to find an a la carte menu with a wide variety of choice

I loved staying here. I didnt have a reservation and wanted to attack Baviaanskloof on the bike the next day so very happy there was one large corner room available. Dinner in the Willow's restaurant was fabulous, good taste and great value. Breakfast was a little bit less impressive but overall, lovely experience, recommend !

A quirky antique filled main house with lovely staff and a couple of very friendly dogs. They serve amazing dinners which are extremely good value for money and the breakfast is very good too!

The rooms were nice and big with clean linen. The restaurant on site was definitely the highlight for me. They also accommodated my chlidren, even though the menu did not cater for them. Definitely highly recommended to anyone passing through the Karoo.

On a recent roadtrip into the Karoo, we decided to overnight in Willowmore and our B & B of choice was The Willow. Very charming rooms and surrounds, and my family and I enjoyed every moment. The staff were very professional and paid attention to detail. Would definitely recommend The Willow to everyone.

An ideal place to break a long journey. Friendly, professional and great food. The rooms were well appointed. Small issue with the gas water heater though, got used to it. On the whole a really good place to stay over.

When arriving in Willowmore you do not expect the jewel we found. A small quaint village steeped in history including the guest house. Hospitality is exceptional. The Bar is a must for all the history and come hungry. The food is wonderful
