Driving between Gauteng and Cape Town is always a challenge, but this route through the Great Karoo is on good roads with little traffic and according to Google Maps a few kilometres shorter than the N1 or N12. The Calvinia Hotel was a welcome overnight stop with good service and food with most helpful staff.

We where surprise with the value for money and the service we got form the staff and the rooms was really clean. One must make sure where you park because the parking space is really small. The trees near the hotel is really something to see.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Upington. The reception was welcoming and friendly. The hotel is old, but clean. The rooms are large, but dark. The door to our room could not close properly. Our shower was very poor that my wife couldn't wash her hair. The aircon is very noisy and keeps switching on and...

The staff were very friendly and helpful as I booked a room. They were very accommodating to my specific circumstances and did not hesitate to adapt their normal routine to make sure that I am sorted. I can really recommend them for a great night's rest and delicious breakfast.

The "sub-standard" door is on schedule to be replaced. Our gate is closed, but is only locked at 11h00. Staff are moving around the premises all the time. Opening and closing the gate is also clearly audible in staff quarters. History has proven that mentioned procedures is sufficient, because no issues has been reported to date.
