Heel goed, baie goeie waarde vir geld.

Linda het ons baie vriendelik ontvang. Sy verdien 'n kompliment. Bethulie was baie koud, maar die kaggel het die verblyf lekker warm gemaak.

Very good, very good value for money.

Linda received us very kindly. She deserves a compliment. Bethulie was very cold, but the fireplace made the stay nice and warm.

Dit was heerlik.

Ons het heerlik gebly, en Louis was 'n ongelooflik hulpvaardige gasheer. As mens met honde reis, sal ek definitief Karoo Pandok aanbeveel. Die area was goed omhein, met baie plek vir ons honde om hulle bene te rek en veilig rond te harloop. Vir 'n "pet-friendly destination" sal ek dit definitief aanbeveel. Die kamers is baie skoon, goeie linne en lekker matrasse. Alles wat mens nodig het in 'n rustige atmosfeer.

It was delicious.

We had a lovely stay, and Louis was an incredibly helpful host. If you travel with dogs, I would definitely recommend Karoo Pandok. The area was well fenced, with plenty of room for our dogs to stretch their legs and run around safely. For a "pet-friendly destination" I would definitely recommend it. The rooms are very clean, good linen and nice mattresses. Everything one needs in a peaceful atmosphere.

Ons is hartlik en vriendelik ontvang deur Zelda by Karoo Pandok en het baie lekker gebly na 'n lang dag op die pad. Ons kamer was netjies, met alles wat nodig was vir 'n goeie nagrus. Ons het die stilte en plaasatmosfeer geniet, veilig gevoel en kon heerlik gaan stap.

Dit was 'n heerlike kuier met uitstekende diens en vriendelike ontvangs deur Louise. Die braaipakke vir aandete en haar ontbyt was puik, en die slaapplek silwerskoon en voldoende. Ek kan Karoo Pandok beslis aanbeveel.

'n Baie gemiddelde verblyfervaring.

Veiligheid was vir ons 'n groot faktor. Die kamer wat ons bespreek het, was nie wat ons gekry het nie. Wel bitterskoon kamereenheid gewees en gasvrou was baie behulpsaam en vriendelik. Lekker plaasgevoel met diere op die werf.

Oulike en rustige plekkie gewees.

Die huis is so oulik, netjies en skoon. Ons het almal heerlik gekuier op die stoep en die stilte waardeer. Ons besoek aan die Ou Kar Restaurant was net so lekker. Die kos was uit die boonste rakke. Dankie Louise vir jou gasvryheid en vriendelikheid.

Heerlike verblyf vir die lang pad tussen Kaap en Johannesburg.

Laataand aangekom na ons motor problem gehad het en Louise was baie behulpsaam om vir ons kos te reël by die Ou Kar restaurant voor hulle kombuis sluit en ook ons laat aand ingewag. Pad na die die verbly is grondpad en bietjie verspoel en ander paadjies as wat die GPS wys moet maar gevolg word. Skoon en netjies kamer en heerlike bed en baie warm water. Muskiete was net baie lastig.

Lovely accommodation for the long road between Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Arrived late at night after we had a car problem and Louise was very helpful to arrange for food for us at the Ou Kar restaurant before their kitchen closes, and she also waited for us. The road leading to the accommodation is a gravel road and a bit flooded, and other roads than what the GPS shows must be followed. Clean, neat room and a lovely bed, and very hot water. Mosquitoes were very bothersome.

Netjiese blyplek maar R200 per nag te duur.

Die kamer wat ons gebruik het om te oornag, was baie netjies en skoon. Die beddegoed was keurig en mooi skoon. Louise en Bertie se vriendelike ontvang was besonders. Die kamer het egter net een klein badkamervenster en 'n dubbelhout-oopswaaideur sonde muskietnette gehad. Ons aand was die gebruiklike baie warm Bethulie en geen elektrisiteit of lugreeling tot omtrent 23:00. Dus was die kamer onprakties. Ons Gautengers kan nie met sulke oop deure slaap nie (mens weet mos nooit watter ander gaste ook op die perseel rondloop nie!). Die verblyf was goed, maar R800/nag is te dik vir 'n Daalder. R600 is meer in die kol.

Neat place to stay but R200 per night too expensive.

The room we used to spend the night was very neat and clean. The bedding was neat and clean. Louise and Bertie's friendly welcome was exceptional. However, the room only had one small bathroom window and a double wooden swinging door without mosquito nets. Our evening was the usual very hot Bethulie and no electricity or air conditioning until about 11pm. So the room was impractical. We Gautenians cannot sleep with such open doors (you never know what other guests are walking around on the premises!). The accommodation was good, but R800/night is too much for a Daalder. R600 is more on the spot.

Comfortable farm stay.

We had an amazing stay at Karoo Pandok. Louise is extremely accommodating and nothing it too big of an effort. Breakfast was delicious. The rooms are cosy and clean, with everything you need. The aircon and the perfect pool is a godsend in the Free State heat. We will definitely stay here again when driving down to Port Elizabeth.

Lekker rustige plaas-atmosfeer in die dorp.

Ons kamer was gerieflik en skoon met lugversorging, ketel en TV met beperkte kanale. Die swembad is nie omhein nie en dus 'n risiko vir klein kinders. Die netjiese tuin dra by tot 'n heerlike rustige atmosfeer. Die raserige kroeg in die dorp bedien aanvaarbare etes - blykbaar soms tot laat! Voertuie met lae grondvryhoogte sal baie versigtig moet ry op die aangeduide roete na Karoo Pondok, alhoewel dit slegs 'n paar honderd meter grof is. Daar is 'n alternatiewe roete wat beter is, maar sonder aanwysings - vra dus vooraf.

Nice peaceful farm atmosphere in the town.

Our room was comfortable and clean with air conditioning, kettle and TV with limited channels. The pool is not fenced and therefore a risk for small children. The neat garden contributes to a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere. The noisy pub in town serves acceptable meals - apparently until late sometimes! Vehicles with low ground clearance will need to drive very carefully on the indicated route to Karoo Pondok, although it is only a few hundred meters rough. There is an alternative route which is better, but without directions - so ask in advance.

Gerieflike verblyf en oorstop om die langpad te breek.

Bespreking was moeitevry met vinnige terugvoer. Ons is hartlik ontvang deur Louise, die vriendelike gasvrou en alles was gereed vir ons verblyf. Die plek is baie rustig, interessant en veilig. Die middag was warm maar ons het heerlik afgekoel in die swembad. Aandete by Die Kar Restaurant in die dorp is aan te beveel, om nie te praat van die heerlike ontbyt die volgende oggend by die gastehuis nie!

Na 'n lang reis was die Karoo Pandok meer soos huis, paleis!

Ons is so vriendelik ontvang deur Louise dat ons dadelik welkom gevoel het. Sy is toevallig van Pretoria (eers daar gewoon) en na sowat 10 minute in Bethulie het ek verstaan hoekom sy getrek het! Die stil omgewing, vriendelike mense, heerlike koel swembad en die kamers was perfek met die lugversorging! Daardie bed. Ek kan met gemak sê, nadat ek tydens my vakansie waar ons by 4 gastehuise oorgebly het, was Karoo Pandok se bed die wenner. Dankie! Ons sal beslis weer daar gaan bly!

The quiet environment, friendly people, lovely cool pool and the rooms were perfect with the air conditioning! That bed. I can say with ease, having stayed at 4 guesthouses during my holiday, Karoo Pandok's bed was the winner. Thank you! We will definitely stay there again!

Karoo-vrede op sy beste.

Ons het Karoo Pandok se Karoo-huisie en Farmer's Cottage gehuur vir ’n paar dae, want ons wou my broer se 60 ste verjaarsdag in Bethulie vier. Die huisies was pragtig skoon, met slim dekor, gemaklike beddens en goeie linne. Die water was warm en die handdoeke weelderig sag en wit. Louise en Barry was 'n uitstekende gasheerpaar en het ons so welkom laat voel. Die ligging is net buite die dorpie en dis maklik om binne minute na die hoofstraat te stap.

The cottages were beautifully clean, with smart decor, comfortable beds and good linen. The water was hot and the towels luxuriously soft and white. Louise and Barry were excellent hosts and made us feel so welcome. The location is just outside the village and it's easy to walk to the high street within minutes.

Nooit weer nie!

Niemand om ons te ontvang nie, ons moes bel en wag vir iemand om te kom. Stort het nie gordyn nie en water is oral op die gladde geverfde vloer terwyl jy stort. My vrou het op die gladde nat vloer geval, gelukkig nie baie seer gekry nie. Bed het net een laken. Ontspanningsarea was slordig en nie eens gevee nie, vuil glase wat rondstaan. Foto's aanlyn is baie misleidend: Nooit weer nie!

Hi Danie,
Baie dankie vir jou terugvoer.
Ons almal hier by Karoo Pandok is geskok, verbaas en teleurgesteld oor jou ondervinding en baie jammer julle het nie julle kuier by ons geniet nie.
Hier is altyd iemand om gaste te verwelkom by die gastehuis, Arno Van Der Berg wat die dag bestuurder was, het u vroeg die dag geskakel en gevra om ons asb te kontak wanneer u in Bethulie aankom sodat ons kan reël om u te ontmoet in die dorp en julle "Check in" so glad as moontlik te laat verloop en as gevolg van die onlangse wolk breek en storm n ander roete kan neem tot by die Gastehuis.

Die Ontspanningsarea waarna u verwys is vir al ons gaste se gebruik en word daagliks skoon gemaak, dit kan gebeur dat 'n gas dalk sy of haar glas daar gelaat het, jammer daaroor.
Die area is ook buite en moontlik weens die storm en wolk breek die vorige dag mag daar dalk blare op die lapa se baksteen vloer gewees het.

Ons het in die byna 10 jaar wat ons oop is nog nooit sulke slegte terugvoer ontvang oor Karoo Pandok nie en is regtig jammer dat u so bitter ervaring gehad het.

Ons wens u geluk en vrede toe.

Die perfekte oorslaap bestemming vanaf Kaapstad na Jhb. Goeie diens, skoon gemaklike kamers en 'n heerlike ontbyt. Moet net nie haastig wees om te ry die oggend. Ontbyt land op jou bord so teen 9 uur. Gebruik die familietyd en/of verken Bethulie te voet.

Mooiste pandok op 'n plaas!

Vriendelike behulpsame ontvangs. Baie mooi en netjiese verblyf met heerlike luukse linne en matras, daar is baie detail in die dekor - love dit. Dankie vir die lugreeling op so 'n warm dag/nag. Als wat nodig is vir oorslaap in julle dorpie. Regte plaaslewe met die skape en ander diere - was so 'n ontspanne ondervinding. Ons het aandete by "Die Ou Kar" op die dorp gaan geniet. So unpretentious maar die lekkerste kuierplek met koue bier en wyn. Louis, baie dankie vir die persoonlike aandag en die lekker kos wat jy persoonlik vir ons voorberei het! Dit is die heerlikste "slap" tjips wat ons nog ooit geëet het. Lekker bruin en crispy - ons kom beslis weer! Dit het gedurende die nag begin reën en ons is die volgende oggend in die reën daar weg - so bly vir julle, hoop julle kry meer.

Friendly and helpful reception. Beautiful and neat accommodation with lovely and luxurious linen and matress, there is a lot of detail in the décor - love it. Thanks for the aircon on such a hot day/night. Everything you need for an overnight stay in the town. True farm life with the sheep and other animals - was such a relaxing experience. We enjoyed dinner at Die Ou Kar in the town. So unpretentious but the nicest place with cold beer and wine. Louis, thank you for the personal attention and the nice food you personally prepared for us! It is the most delicious slap chips that we've ever eaten. Nice and brown and crispy - we will definitely come again! It started to rain during the night and we left the next morning in the rain - so happy for you, hope you get more of it.

Welkome, rustige oorslaap op reis na Suid-Kaap - aangenaam!

Rustige atmosfeer, skoon en netjies. Aangename verrassing op die langpad. Ons sal verseker weer by Louis oornag!

Heerlike oase in die warm Karoo.

Hier oorgeslaap op pad Kaap toe. Netjiese plekkie met groen tuin en swembad wat lafenis bied na lang pad. Maak vir seker ook 'n draai by die ou kar restaurant om die plaaslike mense te ontmoet. Louis en sy span is gasvry en baie vriendelik.

Lovely oasis in the hot Karoo.

Spent the night here on my way to Cape Town. Neat little place with lush garden and swimming pool, so refreshing after the long road. Make sure to pop in at the Ou Kar Restaurant to meet the locals. Louis and his team are very hospitable and friendly.

Nice accommodation.

We were happy with our accommodation, although the shower door had a panel missing and the fridge never switched off in the night, which made it noisy in the room. We would recommend that people bring a self-catering meal. We had supper at the owner's restaurant in Bethulie, die Ou Kar, which appeared to be the only one in town. The music was sickeningly loud, even when getting out of the car across the road. It appeared to be enjoyed by a few drinking patrons at the pub, but really made our dining experience awful, but we had no option. So ... take your own food and have a braai at your accommodation!

Net een nag oorgebly en dit was heel aangenaam.

Die huisvesting is redelik basies, maar baie aangenaam. Die yskassie is maar baie wankelmoedig en die kraanhegting van die opwasbak op sy laaste bene. Dit skep die indruk dat onderhoud van die plek 'n bietjie agter is. Karoo Pandok bied uitstekende buite kuier- en braaigeriewe en 'n mooi tuin en plaasdiere in kampe net langsaan. Die ontbyt, wat aangebied word in die eienaar se restaurant in die dorp, was uitstekend. Dit moet ook 'n heerlike plek wees om ander etes te geniet.

Only stayed one night and it was very pleasant.

The accommodation is quite basic, but very pleasant. The small fridge is very wobbly and the faucet attachment of the sink on its last legs. It gives the impression that maintenance of the place is a little behind. Karoo Pandok offers excellent outside visiting and braai facilities and a beautiful garden and farm animals in camps just next door. The breakfast, which is offered in the owner's restaurant in town, was excellent. It should also be a lovely place to enjoy other meals.

We had a wonderful stay at the Karoo Pondok, with the owners organising us a wonderful braai-pack and charcoal and even stocking the fridge, after checking telephonically with us. Our kids loved the rural setting and all the wonderful animals.

Die gasheer het uit sy pad gegaan om ons verblyf aangenaam te maak.

Ons het ook Karoo-gasvryheid geniet in die sin dat Louis vinnig vir ons 'n "crispy" mengelslaai bedien het, saam met heerlike sosaties en egte boerewors. Baie dankie, nogmaals!

Dit was 'n wonderlike plek om te oornag en die pad oor Bethulie na die Oos-Kaap is baie mooi.

Karoo Pondok is waarlik 'n waarde vir geld oornagplek - ons kon ons troeteldiere (honde) saamneem en die area was gerieflik en groot genoeg vir hulle. Karoo Pandok se eienaar besit ook die Old Car restaurant op die dorp waar ons baie lekker geëet het die aand van ons verblyf. Netjiese en bekostigbare verblyf. Dankie!

It was a wonderful place to spend the night and the road over Bethulie to the Eastern Cape is very beautiful.

Karoo Pondok is truly value for money accommodation - we were able to take our pets (dogs) with us and the area was comfortable and big enough for them. Karoo Pandok's owner also owns the Old Car restaurant in the town where we had a very nice meal the night of our stay. Neat and affordable accommodation. Thank you!

Lekker rustige ontspanning na 'n lang dag se reis.

Ons het by Karoo Huisie gebly oppad terug van die Kaap af. Was aangenaam verras met die grootte van die huis; dis ideaal vir 'n familie met 2 jong kinders. Groot grasperk vir die kinders om die frustasie van die lang pad uit te speel! Gasvryheid wêreldklas en kan aanbeveel as 'n ideale oornagstop.

We stayed at Karoo Huisie on the way back from the Cape. Was pleasantly surprised with the size of the house; it's ideal for a family with 2 young children. Big lawn for the kids to play out the frustration of the long drive! Hospitality world class and can recommend as an ideal overnight stop.
