Will definitely recommend the place to friends and will stop over again!
HJ van Wyk Nov 2015
De Kothuize is ideal for staying over a few days in Graaff-Reinet either as "in transit" visitors or to enjoy a Karoo sojourn. Neat, clean, well-equipped, situated within walking distance of good restaurants and interesting museums as well as a wonderful art gallery and antiques shop. Friendly and professional staff and reasonable rates combine to make a short or longer stay at one of De Kothuize a very pleasant part of the journey.

Premises is very well located and beautifully renovated. Very tastefully done. Unfortunately needs minor maintenance. I informed Michelle of the few issues.
James Bryden Apr 2015
A lovely and spacious place on a historic and beautiful street. Wifi would have been a nice addition. The manager was very friendly and helpful.
