Have stayed there here numerous times over the past few years, always great experience, excellent food and accommodation. The owners and staff always friendly and helpful. Real South Africa Karoo hospitality. Van Zylsvlei B&B is a must when traveling between the Cape and the Rand.

Excellent layout love the separate accommodation with lekker aircon, very quite and easy access so you would not disturb anyone if you plan on leaving early or coming back from a nice lunch/dinner in town. We had a good night sleep and absolutely loved the place, unfortunately I am rating it a three because we had an unfortunate event where we misunderstood the hostess on the room number because the supposed room key was not in the door as told it was on the counter inside the room behind a closed door so in turn we thought that the room was already occupied, as well was not a room that we booked (they could notify you on room charges) one of the hosts handled the situation very unprofessionaly while we still payed in full for our room we felt like freeloaders and unwelcome (Would be nice if they will show you your room on arrival like other guest houses or present you with the key in reception so this sort of thing would not happen again)

Other then the hard bed, this place was great. Even the massive dog was super friendly and slept in my room for the night (I love animals). Melissa was helpful and friendly plus she goes out of her way for you...give her a raise!

review by Ryan Barry


Baie dankie vir jul vriendelikheid, die kos was baie lekker, die kamer is gerieflik genoeg vir oorslaap alhoewel die bed minder gerieflik was, (het met seer rug opgestaan) ons sou 'n TV in die kamer waardeer het as deel van die pakket. In die algemeen voldoen aan vereistes net vir 'n gewone oorslaap.
