When you enter the Vergelegen Guesthouse on the way to the Reception, you pass the courtyard with the bar and the restaurant (both open to the public) and the pool with lounge-chairs for some refreshing from the summer heat. There are a few rooms alongside the pool, but the more quiet and private ones are in some newer additions to...

Vergelegen is a classy guest house with a very good restaurant. Perfect place to stay over on business and you can invite colleagues over for lunch or dinner. Rooms are spacious and modern. Staff are well trained and friendly.

We stayed at Vergelegen for two nights. The units are in a row, very neat and clean rooms. There is a nice bar room where you can sit and have a drink and just relax, as well as outside tables where you can sit and relax at the swimming pool. If you looking for accommodation in Kakamas, I would say...

I suspect that Vergelegen is one of those places that surprises just about all of its guests as soon as they enter the guest house and experience what they have to offer. After long drives along the hot and dusty Karoo roads and often barren landscapes, it is a wonder to take in all that Vergelegen has to offer. From...

We were on our way camping when my boyfriend got sick and we decided to stop at the guesthouse. The people (especially Tahlitha) was so helpful, friendly and just made us feel at home. We end up staying 3 days and it was like staying in a oasis with the weather. We even got a Christmas Card from the staff...

Not a place to be missed if you are in the area! Beautiful surroundings, beautiful rooms, delicious dinner and breakfast. Staff just great!! Overnight stay too short, two nights would have been good! A definite recommendation here!!! Loved the ducks, black swans and birds.

There were 7 of us comprising of two families one of 4 and the other of 3. The staff were very friendly upon our arrival and during dinner time. Rooms were spotless, linen was clean and crisp. Dinner was superb and the service was excellent. It all fell apart at breakfast though, there were no staff members around to assist...

We turned up here on New Year's Eve without a booking on our way to Namibia. The staff could not have been more accommodating and welcoming. Vergelegen is beautiful with a little pond and ducks wandering around quacking quietly, a real oasis in an otherwise hot and dusty town. The room was excellent and very clean, with everything you could...

With my family we stayed for 3 nights in this guesthouse, on our way to Namibia. Their rooms are beautiful and neat. My kids enjoyed playing in the swimming pool and they were even provided with water balls to play in the swimming pool. The food was excellent as we dined in the restaurant for all our dinners and breakfast...
