We really enjoyed the comfort of Skitterland B & B. We had a room, Aries room, with a lounge and it was exceptionally comfortable, one of the best beds I have slept in. The location was perfect and breakfast was great.

In the home of stars, Skitterland is a shining one. Louise helped us out to get to the SALT tour when we had car troubles, and advised us where to go to get our car fixed. Our room was huge, with a dining table in the bathroom - that's a first! The sherry and biscuits was another special touch. We...

Consistently the best place to stay in the Karoo!! We have stayed here the last 4 years on our tours across South Africa and the service and amenities are still as good as they where when we first stopped here.

The shower in the studio needs adjusting or the head needs changing. It is a pity that one has to specify the breakfast the night before. For the rest it was a great stay. Nice and quiet and romantic in a way. Beautiful night sky.

Stayed here for 2 nights as a quick getaway and the place is really worth it. The room I stayed in was really nice with a lounge area to sit and watch TV and have a cup of coffee or tea. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed an open plan bathroom, which has a Victorian bath and...

This is the second visit to Sutherland, this time visited SALT. The guesthouse was once again very good, very comfortable and homely. The internet in the room has improved 100% and everything was just perfect, would thoroughly recommend for a visit, excellent service, rooms and good breakfast.

Elegant old Victorian House in the centre of this small town. Well furnished, large and comfortable rooms. The room (suite) we had, boasted a fireplace which we used, the bathroom was huge and very well equipped. Breakfast was served in the large kitchen, good selection offering and served quickly.

The trip to Sutherland and SALT was complimented by our choice of accommodation. We appreciated being forewarned that our room did not have shower (we could have changed the room if we wanted to), and although there were bigger rooms and suites available, we had all we needed and were very comfortable. Our hosts went out of their way in...

Lovely stay made special by Louise's warm welcome. I just wish it had been colder as all the comfy blankets, fireplaces and electric blankets went to waste. A very well-run and inviting place to stay to explore Sutherland's night sky.

Skitterland is a true platteland Karoo experience - a cut-stone house furnshed with history. We were delighted and could have spent a week just sitting on the "stoep) (veranda) Our hostess, Louise, was delightful. The suite had every convenience we needed. The breakfast was wholesome and delicious - especially the home-made apricot jam!
