We stayed in room 4 of the hotel. The shower and toilet was not clean and full of dust! If you pay R800 per person (R1600 per night for the two of us), then you expect way more. The remote control of the satellite decoder did not even had batteries in it! We believe that for the money that we...

We stayed in the hotel when visiting Sutherland and got a warm welcome on arrival. The hotel is old , but kept very neat and clean. We got excellent service and delicious food in the restaurant. I can recommend staying there.

This hotel is old and disgusting. The bathroom was terrible. Taps were dirty and the shower head was in a really bad state. There was so much noise during the night that it was impossible to sleep. Breakfast was also really sub standard.

Reception is good. Rooms are small and old, but this is part of the Karoo. Food in the Bar and the breakfast were well prepared and the owner "Koos" take good care of his guests and will tell you more about the history of the town etc. A must to visit and close to the astronomical / observatory site.

We stayed in the Hotel for 3 days. And we can most certainly say it was lovely! The staff are amazing - From the bar-lady, the managers and their wives to the owner and his wife! They accommodated us in every way. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and warm - with panel-heaters and elecric blankets AND IT IS PET...

Although we did not stay at this hotel we did have supper and breakfast, which were both outstanding. The evening meal consisted of roast merino lamb which was excellently cooked. The vegetables were cooked in an Afrikaans manner, which was also very good. A full breakfast was served the next morning. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

I went to the Sutherland Hotel a few weeks ago and the experience almost haunts me. The title of the "hotel" should be reserved for much, much better accomodating places. The bar was shabby, dirty and unwelcoming. The hostess had stained pants and it was a mission to locate her when we arrived, the rooms where also in a shocking...

I was part of a touring group who stayed over for one night only. Compliments to the husband and wife manager team who served delicious food and accommodated our sightseeing plans. They stayed on late to serve us late night soup and desert. The hotel however needs a major renovation specifically the bedrooms and bathrooms. The wood fires in the...

The staff are extremely accommodating to change mealtimes according to your needs. The meals are good and the portions are huge but the rooms and especially the showers need urgent attention. Had a good workout jumping around the shower to catch a drop of water and in the cold wheather you are desparate for a hot shower which unfortunately did...
