"Access to a complete house and hotel restaurants. "
"Loved the history of the town something different and quaint... dinner was delicious!!!!! Have already recommended it to family"

If we can have Wi-Fi access for those travelling for business, it could be an added advantage."
"This is our 2nd trip back to Die Tuishuis, stayed in the Lion House. A nostalgic trip in history of times gone by. Love the attention to detail. This trip we brought my sister from Phoenix Arizona to visit at your amazing hotel. The evening dinner with Amos in attendance was superb. Springbok starte..."more
"Wow - great stay! Beautiful rooms, professional service & great food."
"The charm is unsurpassed"

"We asked to be moved to a room with a king bed and they gave us a very pretty cottage, gave us fresh milk and heaters. We were very comfortable. The restaurant is beautifully old-fashioned and the food is good, In a two week trip I still don't get the excitement over Karoo lamb chops!!! The staff we..."more
"First appearance is deceiving, once inside is another matter, Old world chard of days gone by most of it original, Restoration - a lot of thought gone into it to keep bygone years alive. But for me it was a little over the top and one or two nights would be enough for me, but must admit beds ar..."more
"Friendly staff, good breakfast/dinner. The cottages needs a bit of maintenance, but still good for the price. If they could have the street closed off and made into a parking and leisure area it would be great. Street feels a bit unsafe and detracts form the olde world experience."
"Friendly staff, clean rooms, great food and an amazing experience due to the hotel's historical and quaint feel make this a hotel I can strongly recommend for a one night passing through stay"
"What a unique place. The staff are super friendly and go out of their way to help you. Want to have a feel for old Karoo town life. Just a small feel. Die Tuishuise is you place."

Staff is quite friendly and the restaurant is worth a try. "

"A friend told me about the Tuishuise. What an absolutely amazing experience. The welcome was warm and friendly. We stayed in Victoria house and it was absolutely awesome. The dŽcor and furnishings took us back to another time although we still had the modern luxuries of TV and air conditioner. The 3..."more

"Lovel quaint cottage perfect for our stay as a family in Craddock. Helpful and friendly staff."
"A very unique type of accommodation. Each house is different and still like it was in the 19th century. Very good breakfast and dinner. Will definitely stay there again if visiting the Karoo."
"After a long drive we arrived at paradise. The Tuishuise is an amazing setup. The Victoria Hotel is an amazing example of a 19th Century Hotel. The houses are all different, but they are all little gems of 'time machines'. The staff are all very caring and interested. The quality of care offered is ..."more
"Absolutely beautiful accommodation - spacious, beautifully furnished and a flash back to the past but very hot without aircon and not enough fans for each bedroom.
Cradock very quaint but completely closed for tourists between Christmas and New Year! No coffee shops, museums and sights close..."
"Most enjoyable stay in very clean and well-kept accommodation. Gibson is a legend. We will definately stay again."
"An absolute delight. The houses are fantastic and this is an experience to be repeated. The service is very friendly and professional."

"- rooms very clean & comfortable and the breakfast and dinner very good, too."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at 'Die Tuishuise'. The cottage we stayed in, Anna, has been beautifully restored and offered us the unique opportunity to step back in time for a night. It was well equipped which allowed us to prepare simple meals for our two young children. A definite mus..."more
"We appreciated the beautiful real antiques being used as practical items. The cottages had been neatly restored without changing their historical character. This is a rare experience in a make-belief-world where plastic items and simulated 'wood veneer' floors and furniture products are the order of..."more
"Comfortable accomodation and good meals - reasonably priced "
"lovely environment and well restored houses.
It is a pity that trucks can destroy the quietness of this so typically Karoo village."
"If you like an old fashioned type of accommodation this would definitely be the place that I would recommend for you. An old, but homely stay. I felt comfortable in my room. It was cleaned daily and had everything one needed. The owner and her staff are friendly caring people. If you have an issue, ..."more
"It’s a nice place for a stopover and we’ve been there before. Dinner was lovely, place is clean and the service is always pleasant."

Dinner on both evenings was first class with impressive choice, excellent food quality and outstanding service. Breakfast was..."more
"This was our second visit and we stayed in the hotel this time rather than a cottage. Service as usual was excellent. The traditional dinner was the highlight of our stay. Although the furnishings of the hotel are all antiques, it is still comfortable by modern standards.
A visit here should be ..."
"The Tuishuise is a wonderful idea and allow visitors to stop over and appreciate the past life style and furnishings.
The breakfast and especially the three course evening meal was perfect in presentation and value!
Will plan to return soon "Highly recommended"

Staying in number 21 Millbrooke was as if history was coming ..."
"Vandat ons verwelkom is by ontvangs was alles profesioneel. Die Personeel was baie vriendelik, behulpsaam en het ons werklik tuis laat voel. Die geriewe was baie netjies, skoon en ten volle op standaard. Ons het 'n selfoon en nog 'n paar klein artikels vergeet in Harry Potter - huis. Ons was skaars ..."more

The staff at the hotel were all delightful particularly Gibson who had a passion for British comedy series. The breakfasts were excellent as was the dinner on the Sunday..."more
"My husband and I stayed for 1 night at Die Tuishuise in February and had a most enjoyable stay.

"Die Tuishuise with its fascinating houses is a great attraction for visitors. To be able to arrive and relax in a comfortable house after a tiring day of travelling is all that is required. Then to be able to choose whether to prepare a meal oneself, open up the picnic basket, send for take-aways or..."more
"We felt very much at home at Die Werf. The comfortable and perfectly equipped little house was ideal for our group. Sandra Antrobus and her staff were extremely nice and helpful, thank you!
