We always has been in love with Graaff - Reinette and with the Drostdy Hotel.
We were travelling from the Free state on our way to Mossel Bay - this was an excellent half way stop.
The staff were vey friendly and helpful.
The room was the best with all you needed - because it was cold the warm under floor heating in the bathroom was all we needed after a long drive.
The breakfast was excellent!! Keep up this high standard Thank you very much.

Enjoyed the bar area over the weekend while on a hunting trip. Good service and location.
The massage is a must and very professional.
Located in the center of town with easy access to most emmenities.

After several years of driving through Graaff-Reinet on the way to Johannesburg and threatening to stay for a night, we finally booked 2 nights at The Drostdy. We are so glad we did. One day is not enough to unwind and explore this lovely town, beautiful nearby locations such as the Valley of Desolation and the great restaurants in the town. The Drostdy is so pretty, with whitewashed buildings and colourful shutters - the Africology Spa was just great and the products made for perfect gifts (for ourselves and others!). Everything was impeccable - service, food and cleanliness. Take some time out and relax in this Karoo gem.

Date of stay: January 2018

Gone are the days of a 'boring' small town!

2 nights indeed is a great way to treat yourself to the beauty Graaff-Reinet has to offer.

We do look forward to hosting you again - to treat you to the luxury and spleandour we have...

We again stayed at the Drostdy for two nights in May 2018 and found the hotel with all facilities as good as in the past. Tranquil, beautifully decorated and maintained. The accommodation is top notch with all possible comforts, large underfloor heated bathrooms, etc. All the staff, including the manager Mr. Janus Schoeman who paid such personal attention to us a guests, so very friendly and efficient. We dined in the hotel restaurant on both evenings and again found the service, food and wine excellent. The bar is worth a visit. There is a wine tasting room and large conference room for those requiring such facilities. The breakfasts are a treat - with excellent eggs benedict - inter alia. This hotel is a haven of beauty and quiet in the Great Karoo. The gardens are a delight and the outdoor relaxing areas superb.The main building is historic, superbly furnished and decorated with many items of historic interest. The lounges and library-cigar lounge is a must see and just the place to relax with a book. We will return as soon as possible.

Room tip: All rooms quiet - Any will do.

The rooms are absolutely gorgeous nd well kept, the staff is helpful and very on top of things. The food is tasty and they have vast selection of wines!
Food is quite pricey, I wouldn’t say that it 100% worth it but desert was delicious and made up for it.
