April 11, 2014 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Located in the heart of one of the Klein Karoo’s most charming dorpies, just 2 1⁄2 hours from Cape Town,South Africa, on the scenic R62 route, the Barrydale Karoo Hotel is a rare find.

Come to explore the picturesque village or surrounding mountains, unwind in the nearby natural hot springs,sample the region’s wines in front of a crackling fire, relax around the large pool… Get down at one of the regular live music events, or simply join the locals and plunder the well-stocked bar. 167605_num698521_600x600

A country experience with a twist that includes interesting artwork and colourful décor. It’s typically intimate, with just fifteen uniquely-styled rooms available. You could spend your entire stay relaxing in the hotel’s many nooks and crannies, by the large pool or a crackling fire.

If privacy and tranquillity are what you’re looking for, the hotel becomes your very own retreat: restore your body and soul at the Warmwaterberg hot springs, walk the labyrinth for a spiritual experience, or just relax with a glass of wine and plate of Karoo food and watch the day go by.

If food and wine are your passion, the hotel offers its guests a hearty Karoo breakfast included in the rate. Come lunchtime you can choose to dine under the trees by the pool, the pub, the restaurant, or experience some of the local cuisine in the hotel restaurant. The real culinary delight comes in the form of dinner, with an accomplished executive chef and offering a menu that includes fresh organic salads to traditional Karoo delights (the Karoo lamb curry is not to be missed!). The hotel stocks all the wines from the Klein Karoo wine estates.

Come as a stranger; leave as a friend. Because the Cape’s funkiest country hotel still offers that most vital ingredient: warm, old-fashioned Karoo hospitality.
