The rooms in this boutique hotel in Bonnievale, are fantastic! Each individually decorated according to themes like Hemingway, Audrey Hepburn, 46664Madiba on Robben island etc. The art deco style of the exterior is repeated in the dining and bar areas - very stylishly done. A MUST on your itinerary.

Nice place, unluckily they concentrate currently on the weekly business visitors and weekly functions, so I will not visit again. Otherwise a flippen nice place!

Dear Johan We always appreciate feedback from our guests and sure appreciate you taking the time to write this review. Unfortunately, due to the lack of trade in Bonnievale, it does not justify for us to be open on Saturday evenings and Sundays. The only evening we are open is on a Friday night! We are really sorry to hear... More

We enjoyed a weekend-long stay and Vicki and the Karen's made us feel totally at home. Accommodation was lovely, service good and the food fantastic. Definitely on our... More

We were a group of ten - having breakfast and dinner at Karin's during our weekend-long stay in Bonnievale. We were served the most wonderful food by the always-friendly staff. Every meal served to each of us, was fresh, looked very good, and tasted really really good. We even made a quick visit to the restaurant for a cup of... More

I visit the area once a month on business and always try to make a gap in a busy day for a bite to eat at Karin's. I have probably been through the menu (twice) and have yet to be disappointed. From salads to quiches in various flavours and assorted pies, they have all been prepared with care, attention to... More

Everything themed with fantastic attention to detail. A retro fifties feel. Karen with the e served us at the bar and took us for a dander through... More

The drive between Roberston and Bonnievale is beautiful, the road lined with all sorts of colourful flower bushes such as "Kanna's" and "Gousblomme" and roses etc. Many well known wine estates including Van Loveren which i rated very highly in one of my other reviews. Bonnievale is a real honest dorp with the farming community in abundance. Some antique shops,... More
