This was a return visit to a charming venue. Virtually the whole street block is accommodation cottages with discreet security operating. It's also 20 minutes from the gate of Mountain Zebra National Park. It is a warm and welcoming place which I would not hesitate to recommend.

All in all it was a lovely trip. It was our first time and we didn't quite know what to expect. But it turned into a worthwhile idea. Cradock is a lovely place and the hotel was much more than expected. The houses are absolutely beautiful. Very impressive. The detail in each room was amazing. Almost a little eerie !

We were travelling from Johannesburg to Knysna and stayed overnight at the lovely, quaint Tuishuise with our two teenage children. We had a wonderful little cottage beautifully decorated in the old antique style from days gone by, very spacious and with a lovely little garden and off street parking. We were warmly greeted and had booked dinner in the Victoria...

Quaint / unique - a step back in time. If your route takes you this way, do yourself a favour & spend a night here. A street full of historical homes, so you get your own home for the night.

We stayed 2 nights in the cottages. We had 2 cottages and they each interesting in their own way. The one cottage had a big kitchen with a full stove almost (missing an element) cleanness of which was somewhat questionable, the table was set for 4 people with a full set of dinnerware but not much, if anything else, in...

had a wonderful stay while travelling for business to Cradock, the accommodation was good and also the food. I always only stay at Victoria Manor/ Die Tuishuise when I am in Cradock for the past 11 years.

Even if you do not stay over the night (and one should) stop for breakfast as it is good value for money and lovely place to stop over . People are friendly and is part of 30 historical renovated places in the town.

Our group comprised 2 couples travelling from Johannesburg to the Sondel Beach House in Plettenberg Bay wanting to experience a bit of the Karoo "outback" going via Pearston beyond Cradock and Jansenville. The Tuis Huise in Cradock was an ideal stop-over and what a pleasant one it was. Almost 90% of the old little homes in the street belong to...

I love the sight with all the restored houses. They make a good statement in the town. It will help if tourists can get a map of interesting shops and other things. We did visit the Mountain Zebra Park! That was a high!

What a pleasure to stay at the Tuishuise. We were accommodated in one of the spacious historic family homes strung along the street that have been described as national treasures. Our house was named after Queen Victoria and her portrait was hanging opposite the fireplace in the lounge. She is not amused when guests misbehave. We has several bedrooms and...
