Very centrally situated .We stayed in a cottage which was very comfortable with enough privacy and Johan's garden is lush and inviting. The pool is a great feature and was a welcome relief in the heat.Airconditioning was also very welcomed and the outdoor shower was very enjoyable.
The host,Johan, is extermely friendly and service orientated.
We loved our stay and can highly recommend this lovely gem.

My friend and I stayed at 81 on Church, while taking a December road trip through the Great Karoo and Klein Karoo. We only stayed here for one night, which in hindsight, was far too little...this guest house and our rooms were absolutely beautiful, well-managed and well-appointed, and totally relaxing. Prince Albert was also our favorite village that we visited during the Karoo road trip (with some very strong competition!), with plenty to do/see/eat.

We each had one of the newer cottages in the rear of the property. I can't comment on the guest rooms in the historic house (though I'm sure they're lovely), but when I visit here again, I'll definitely book another cottage. They're like having your own little retreat set amidst beautiful Karoo gardens, complete with a stylish kitchenette and sitting area, an outdoor shower, and French doors that open up onto your own private patio in the garden. The beds are extremely comfortable with high-quality bedding, and there is both a ceiling fan and a/c for comfort.

The owner/manager, Johann, was also an amazing host! Prior to our arrival (following an 11-hour drive from Joburg), Johann made reservations for my friend and I at a nearby restaurant, so we didn't have to stress about it on arrival. He gives us good tips on what to see in the town during our short visit, and provided us with some interesting history about the Swartberg Pass (which we subsequently drove - absolutely amazing), while also giving us privacy.

I can't wait to return and relax in this Karoo paradise!

Johan made us very welcome and we enjoyed our modern spacious cottage in his lovely garden. There was a kitchen and indoor and outdoor showers. The bed was comfortable and although the property is on the main road, there was no traffic noise. Very convenient location. Breakfast not supplied but the Lazy Lizard would take some beating!

The photos looked great and when arrived, the place exceeded our expectations. Our room was beautiful, prestine and bigger than expected. Outdoor shower was a bonus! The sitting area has good quality furniture. The view from the bedroom over the garden was breath taking! Bed very comfy! The garden is delightful and enjoy picking plums. Our host a real gentleman!

We were two couples who stayed in the garden accommodation behind the main house. Flatlets were very clean, well equipped and had a lovely view over the garden.
Johan was an excellent host, without being intrusive, helping wherever he could. I will recommend 81 on Church without hesitation

Room tip: The garden is a special feature in this dry area and the accommodation in the garden is recommended
