Pragtig.

Doornkraal Kothuis is ongelooflik mooi op 'n pragtige plaas, en die pad na De Rust-area loop deur 'n fantastiese mooi, rotsagtige Karoolandskap. Baie vriendelike gasvrou en wonderlike uitsig.

Beautiful.

Doornkraal Cottage is incredibly beautiful on a beautiful farm, and the road to De Rust area runs through a fantastically beautiful, rocky Karoo landscape. Very friendly hostess and wonderful view.

Wonderlike plek om na 'n lang reis af te pak.

Rustige en stil plek net buite De Rust. Absolute gasvryheid. Netjiese kothuise en die ontbyt sal ons laat terugkom vir meer. Swepie se wyne is absoluut aan te beveel.

Great place to unwind after a long trip.

Peaceful and quiet place just outside De Rust. Absolute hospitality. Neat cottages and the breakfast will keep us coming back for more. Swepie's wines are absolutely recommended.

Heerlike rustige atmosfeer. Baie gasvrye mense.

Ons sal weer daar wil gaan kuier en rus. Baie aangename plek om net weer tot ruste te kom en nuwe asem en energie te kry.

Absoluut hemels, fantasties.

Ons het as gesin met ons twee dogters van oorsee en ons kleinkind gekuier. Niks was te veel moeite vir Celia en haar familie nie. Hulle het uit hulle pad uit gegaan om al die interessante plaas-gebeurtenisse vir ons kleinseun te wys. Hy en ons het gedink dat ons in die hemel beland het. Die personeel was vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ontbyt was 'n baie onverwagte bederf en ons sal Doornkraal enige tyd aanbeveel. Ons het heerlik gekuier.

Absolutely heavenly, fantastic.

We visited as a family with our two daughters from overseas and our grandchild. Nothing was too much trouble for Celia and her family. They went out of their way to show all the interesting farm activities for our grandson. He and us thought we were in heaven. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a very unexpected treat and we would recommend Doornkraal any time. We had a great time.

Karoogasvryheid op sy beste!

Ons gesin het Doornkraal vreeslik geniet. Celia, die gasvrou, het uit haar pad gegaan om ons te laat welkom voel. Ons kon die plaas verken en het tot perd gery. Ons sal nooit weer verby De Rust kan ry en nie by Doornkraal oorslaap nie. Tien uit tien!

Karoo hospitality at its best!

Our family really enjoyed Doornkraal. Celia, the hostess, went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We were able to explore the farm and even rode horses. We will never again be able to drive past De Rust and not spend the night at Doornkraal. Ten out of ten!
