    Excellent place to stay over on the way to the Cape. Quaint and pretty area in the town. Clean, comfortable and affordable. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. The dinner was excellent! Would definitely recommend.

    Stayed at the Barracks on the way to Lesotho and back. Great place, friendly owners and big breakfast included! Very convenient for an overnight stay off the N1 and walking distance to restaurants etc

    After a long days driving from Durban to Cape Town, The Barracks was a perfect half-way point for a much needed break and a good nights rest. As we we were travelling with a small dog and cat, the pet friendly accomodation suited us nicely!...More
