Karoo Art Hotel
Holiday Joy and Famly Fun
A very unique hotel and a wonderful experience. The art is amazing and there are lots of comfortable spots to sit and read or just relax. the food is excellent. Unfortunately, the Springbok pie pastry was chewy as it was probably warmed in a microwave oven, which is such a pity.

The restaurant was closed at the time (off season) of our stay which was disappointing. This was not disclosed at the time of booking.

Barrydale Karoo Art Hotel
Barrydale is an incredibly relaxed and beautiful town. The Karoo Art Hotel is one of the most interesting and friendly hotels I have ever stayed in, both in South Africa and abroad. The Bistro is an excellent pub, just across the road from the hotel, and Country Pumpkin, Coco's and Diesel & Crème as "must be" place to visit, along with Barrydale Celars.
