Reviews for The Barracks
The hosts were really friendly and helpful. The Barracks is a beautiful historic building, and the owners did alot to keep tje period character. Its is on a quiet street with a great restuarant just 100m away. With DSTV, airconditioning and spacious bathroom with lovely amenities I whole heartedly recommend a stay at The Barracks.
When I arrived I was handed a glass of sherry. What more can I say? Dinner was delicious (lamb chops and home made ice cream) and the hosts were very understanding of parking needs. The room came with a hair dryer, dressing gowns and comfy pillows. I would stay here again.
Comfortable accommodation and 5 star service - thank you Mike and Annalie for a fabulous stop-over with excellent food and friendly staff. The "talking" resident Husky is another reason to book this B&BSee you again soon on our way through.
Nice and quiet place, people very friendly and the food is excellent, it was a pleasure staying there, would definitely return when I'm in that part of the country again.
"Perfect for dogs"
Perfect stopover with your pet, huge gated courtyard for them to roam in freely. Room was good, good restaurant 50m down the road, delicious breakfast, welcomed on arrival in the evening with sherry after our long drive, friendly host! Only downside was the sheets in the king bed had dust and sand between them (not sure why) but the sheets in the two singles were spotless and we slept in those very comfortably.
Good place in the middle of South Africa. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Owner run business, making the experience very personal. The rooms are clean and good for a stopover. The Karoo lamb is to die for! Well done Mike & co. See you soon again
The historic ambiance and warmth of hosts were impressive! Food was great. Spacious characterful rooms with thickest walls ever seen.
Afordable. Good breakfast.
Beautiful rooms and lovely garden and surroundings. Breakfast was magnificent and scrumptious and very tasty - loved the home made muffins. Hosts were extremely hospitable and excellent. Highly recommended!
Not quite what the website describes. Room was nice though, spacious with a small kitchen and aircon (a must have in colesberg!) Parking was a hassle and you have to love dogs here.
Very friendly owners. You get to sleep in the original barracks of the town from the 1800s. Delicious breakfast. Perfect for you N1 stop over. They have a friendly malamute too.
Amazing service - some of the friendliests hosts and staff we've ever experienced. The food was amazing as well - all beautiful home-cooked meals. The rooms were spacious and clean.
Absolutely an incredible place to relax after a long drive! They are pet friendly and our two dogs had their own large patio to run around and stretch their legs! The owners are very friendly and welcoming and the room was incredible. Definitely worth the price!!
