Brilliant service.

What a gorgeous guesthouse in a gorgeous town. First time for me in Carnarvon, and I can most certainly recommend the guesthouse as your first choice. The dining experience at the restaurant was lovely. Great service, great food, and generous portions. I walked to the restaurant from the guesthouse but was given a lift back by the owner/manager of the guesthouse because he didn't want me to walk back in the dark. Such a gentleman. I can most certainly recommend this guesthouse and the restaurant.

Gemaklik.

Baie netjies en skoon en gemaklik. Die enigste hindernis is dat daar geen ontbyt bedien word deur die gastehuis nie, en omdat dit 'n klein dorpie is sonder franchises, is daar ook nie iewers ander om ontbyt te eet nie (en die kamer het ook nie geriewe om self ontbyt te maak nie). So bring dus maar jou eie ontbyt soos oggend pap of iets saam as jy wil eet voor jy ry.

Comfortable.

Very neat and clean and comfortable. The only hindrance is that there is no breakfast served by the guest house, and because it is a small town without franchises, there is also nowhere else to eat breakfast (and the room also does not have facilities to make your own breakfast not). So just bring your own breakfast like morning porridge or something with you if you want to eat before you drive.

Likely to stay somewhere else.

Interesting rooms, we had to change the first one due to faulty A/C. The rooms are very unique, and we enjoyed our stay in them. We ordered lamb shanks at the restaurant. It was tough and undercooked, with vegetables overcooked and sickly sweet, and the accompanying gravy was excessively thick. I would not recommend this restaurant; there are others with better reviews.

Aangename verrassing in die Karoo.

Interessante geskiedkundige plek. Baie skoon, netjies, gerieflik en goed toegerus. Die klein houertjie melk en beskuitjie by die koffie is 'n pluspunt. Pragtige dekor en ons het lekker geslaap op goeie koninggrootte-bed in die ateljee-eenheid. Aandete by die restaurant was uitstaande! Ons het nie ontbyt genuttig nie. 'n Botteltjie koue water vir elke gas in die yskas is iets wat jul kan oorweeg.

Beautiful decor and we slept well on good king size bed in the studio unit. Dinner at the restaurant was outstanding! We didn't have breakfast. A bottle of cold water for each guest in the fridge is something you can consider.

Pragtige gastehuis vol antieke meubels.

Ons onlangs oornag in Lord Carnarvon Guesthouse. Ons was in die agterste deel. Kamer groot met netjiese meubels. Die sitkamer is vol antieke meubels. Oopplan-kombuis met nodige vir oornag. Ons het ontbyt geniet in die voorste huis. Heerlike kos, te veel en ons het die muffins saamgevat as padkos. Die binneparkeerplek was genoeg vir 2 bakkies met kampwaens. Ons het aandete geniet so 2 blokke verder by die Lord Carnarvon Small Hotel.

We recently spent the night in Lord Carnarvon Guesthouse. We were in the back part. Room large with neat furniture. The living room is full of antique furniture. Open plan kitchen with essentials for overnight stays. We enjoyed breakfast in the front house. Delicious food, too much and we took the muffins with us as road food. The indoor parking space was enough for 2 vans with camper vans. We enjoyed dinner about 2 blocks away at the Lord Carnarvon Small Hotel.

Een van die beste gastehuise in die platteland, beter as meeste stedelike gastehuise.

Dis werklikwaar 'n oase vir 'n moeë reiseger. Die antieke meubels ens. bring verlange na jou jeugdae. Die personeel het uit hul pad gegaan om ons te help. Weens tyd kon ons ongelukkig nie ontbyt nuttig nie. Ons het die aand by hotel geëet, deel van gastehuis. Het Pieter en sy pa ontmoet en heerlik gesels. Aandete genuttig, kos van hoogstaande gehalte. Dankie aan Pieter en personeel.

Dit was 'n absolute verrassing met uiters stylvolle, keurige, netjiese en moderne verblyf.

Alles tot breekgoed getuig van duur smaak. Vir seker 'n aanwins vir die dorp. Ons het ook baie lekker geëet in die Lord Carnarvon Kitchen. 'n Moet vir enige reisiger in daardie omgewing.

Die gastehuis het al ons verwagtinge oortref. Teruggevoer na 'n tyd lank gelede. Absoluut die moeite werd om te sien en weer te besoek.

Die belewenis van gerief, pragtige antieke meubels en gasvryheid was uit die boonste rakke.

Ek beveel Lord Carnarvon Guest House sonder huiwering en uiters sterk aan: Die 5-ster akkommodasie se ruim woonstel is silwerskoon, gerieflik met die pragtigste antieke meubels ens wat 'n gesellige huislike atmosfeer skep. Heerlike bed, mooi badkamer, volledig toegeruste kombuis en parkeerplek net voor die deur. Kon tot laat buite kuier in die binnehof en daarna na die stylvolle kroeg en eetkamer met die keurige antieke meubels en muurversierings. Dit is duidelik dat die eienaar en bestuur die gaste se behoeftes prioritiseer - werklik 'n fantastiese belewenis!

Lovely bed, nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and parking right in front of the door. Could hang out in the courtyard until late and then to the stylish bar and dining room with the exquisite antique furniture and wall decorations. It is clear that the owner and management prioritize the guests' needs - a truly fantastic experience!

Die instelling word geraak deur die agteruitgang van kleiner plattelandse dorpies.

Streng water beperkings a.g.v droogte, en 'n baie lawaaierige omgewing (dalk omdat dit die dag na nuwejaar was) het ons besoek ietwat versuur. Ons het om 03:00 die oggend vertrek omdat ons a.g.v die lawaai nie kon slaap nie en die vooruitsig van 'n toilet wat nie spoel en 'n stort sonder water het die laaste nag van ons vakansie op 'n baie lae noot beëindig.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

The institution is affected by the decline of smaller rural villages.

Strict water restrictions due to drought, and a very noisy environment (perhaps because it was the day after new year) soured our visit somewhat. We left at 03:00 in the morning because we couldn't sleep due to the noise and the prospect of a toilet that wouldn't flush and a shower without water ended the last night of our vacation on a very low note.

Ligging in middedorp met soveel straatlewe en straatlopers reg om mens, is onaanvaarbaar.

Kamer in hoofhuis was goed maar ons was enigste mense in daardie deel. Mens voel glad nie veilig nie! Ook besorg oor kamer en motorinbraak. Besorg oor veiligheid in strate. Daar is nie water in dorp en is beperk tot twee periodes 'n dag. Moet dan nog drukpomp ook gaan aanskakel. Teen R900 'n nag, wil mens veiliger wees en water hê. Lord’s Kitchen Restaurant het glad nie beïndruk nie. Sal nie hongerly daar nie, maar lekker gaan jy nie eet nie. Oorprys vir wat jy kry en waar die plekke lê. Neusie verby vir die plek regtig. Kies eerder elders 'n dorp en 'n nice plek daarin.

Location in the center of town with so much street life and street walkers all around, is unacceptable.

Room in main house was good but we were only people in that part. One does not feel safe at all! Also concerned about room and car break-in. Concern about safety in streets. There is no water in town and is limited to two periods a day. Then also have to turn on the pressure pump. At R900 a night, one wants to be safer and have water. Lord's Kitchen Restaurant did not impress at all. You won't go hungry there, but you won't eat well. Overpriced for what you get and where the places are. Nose over for the place really. Instead, choose a town and a nice place in it.

Gasheer was baie vriendelik en het ons laat tuis voel. Pragtige gastehuis met baie mooi antieke meubels. Onbyt was uit 'n boek. Het nie die aandete by die Lords Kitchen geneem, die omgewing waar dit geleë is, is die parkering in die straat wat nie baie veilig gelyk het nie, maar wel aandete geëet by Mams Restaurant by die vulstasie waar daar 'n wag was. Dis jammer dat die dorp so agteruit gaan.

Dit was 'n stylvolle plek en aangename ervaring.

Lord Carnarvon Guesthouse het ons verwagtinge oortref, ten spyte van die waterkrisis en beperkinge waarvoor daar spesiale voorsiening gemaak is om enige ongerief te voorkom. Wat 'n stylvolle charming plek! Die mense was vriendelik en die ete in hul restaurant was voortreflik. Ons het met 'n baba gereis en hulle was so behulpsaam met spesiale kossies.

'n Wonderlike aand in die newels van gister.

As jy lief is vir geskiedenis en antieke meubels moet jy nie hierdie gastehuis mis nie. Dit is die grootste versameling antieke meubels, elke stuk met liefde uitgekies wat ons nog in 'n lang tyd in 'n gastehuis aangetref het. Die eienaar Pieter Hoffman het uit sy pad gegaan om ons verblyf aangenaam te maak. Omdat dit op die 1ste Januarie was, was ons bekommerd dat alle eetplekke toe sou wees. Ons het egter 'n heerlike maaltyd kon geniet by Pieter se restaurant Lord's Kitchen. Die ontbyt die volgende oggend was fenominaal, 'n groot verskeidenheid en keurig aangebied. Dankie Pieter dat jy die mooi met ons gedeel het.

If you love history and antique furniture you should not miss this guest house. This is the largest collection of antique furniture, each piece carefully selected, that we have found in a guest house in a long time. The owner Pieter Hoffman went out of his way to make our stay pleasant. Because it was on the 1st of January, we were worried that all eateries would be closed. However, we were able to enjoy a delicious meal at Pieter's restaurant Lord's Kitchen. The breakfast the next morning was phenomenal, a great variety and beautifully presented. Thank you Pieter for sharing the beauty with us.

We had an enjoyable stay!

We were given a warm welcome by Pieter who took the time to show us around and explained how the keys and access worked. We had a delicious meal at the restaurant and were most comfortable in a lovely room in the main house which was beautifully decorated and had a rich history, explained by Pieter. Only one small issue were the hard and rather uncomfortable pillows which did detract from an otherwise comfortable room and overall excellent experience including a great breakfast, served at the time we requested.

Dit was vir ons 'n groot verrassing vir so klein plattelandse dorpie.

Die eenheid wat ons gebly het was baie gerieflik en goed toegerus. Ons was hartlik ontvang en die restaurant waar ons die aand gaan kuier het (en wat aan dieselfde eienaar behoort) is beslis die besoek werd. Die wegneem ontbyt was ook 'n bonus wat ons nie verwag het nie.

Ongelooflik.

Lord Carnarvon is 'n juweel in die vaal Karoo en beslis die rit werd. Die ou gebou is meer as 100 jaar oud en is pragtig gerestoureer en die binnekant is stylvol gemeubileer met meubels van dekades gelede. Mens kan nie ophou kyk nie. Hier het beslis baie maande se sweet ingegaan en jy sal dom wees om dit te mis.

This must have taken months of hard word and it would be stupid to miss it.

It's a beautiful historic guest house with friendly staff.

The only reason why we will not stay in Carnarvon again is the fact that the guest house is directly opposite a church and the church bell rings 24/7 several times every hour. My wife is a light sleeper and the church bell tolled through the still night! Perhaps the people who remain take sleeping pills because the residents no longer hear the bell.

Fantastic surprise.

We really were not expecting too much when we booked, but what a surprise. The accommodation is outstanding in every way. We stayed in the main hotel but there are rooms in a delightful Victorian house close by. This is where breakfast is served in the most amazing dining room overflowing with antiques. A very professional setup overseen by owner Peter who does everything possible to make your stay memorable. A must stay in Carnarvon and have recommended to friends already.

Baie oulike gastehuis, uitstekende diens en netjiese kamers. Die gastehuis se restaurant af in die straat word ook hoogs aanbeveel. Carnarvon is 'n ideale oornag op 'n alternatiewe roete op weg na jou Kaap-vakansie.

Outstanding!

Very cute guest house, excellent service and neat rooms. The guesthouse's restaurant down the street is also highly recommended. Carnarvon is an ideal overnight stop on an alternative route on your way to your Cape holiday.

Baie goeie verblyf, uitstekende ligging en heerlike ontbyt.

Ons is vriendelik ontvang en kon gerieflik die aand braai. Ontbyt was heerlik in 'n ouwêreldse gastehuis. Die gasheer kon 'n bietjie vriendeliker gewees het.

Very good accommodation, excellent location and delicious breakfast.

We were kindly received and could conveniently have a barbecue in the evening. Breakfast was delicious in an old world guest house. The host could have been a bit friendlier.

Dit was baie lekke.

Ek sal dit enige tyd by iemand aanbeveel. Lekker skaapstertjies geëet by dieselfde eienaar se restaurant.

It was a lot of leaks.

I would recommend it to anyone anytime. Ate nice mutton tails at the same owner's restaurant.

Aangename verrassing - die soort wat jy altyd sal onthou.

Mens is nooit seker wat om te verwag nie, maar ek kan regtig Lord Carnarvon aanbeveel. Ek het aanvanklik bespreek net vir een nag as 'n oorslaap op pad Kaap toe, maar ek het hierdie plekkie so geniet dat ek reeds 'n langer besoek beplan. Die diens is baie goed en die kamers regtig mooi netjies en skoon. Die mense van die dorp kuier baie lekker, so maak seker jy maak 'n draai by "Lord's Kitchen" en die "Blikkies Bar". Selfoonontvangs binne die dorp werk gewoonlik, maar kan van tyd tot tyd af wees. Geen selfoonontvangs vir lang ente voor en na die dorp - en in die Karoo tussen dorpe in die algemeen.

Pleasant surprise - the kind you'll always remember.

You're never sure what to expect, but I can really recommend Lord Carnarvon. I initially booked just for one night as a stopover on the way to Cape Town, but I enjoyed this little place so much that I'm already planning a longer visit. The service is very good and the rooms really neat and clean. The people of the town have a great time, so make sure you visit "Lord's Kitchen" and the "Blikkies Bar". Cell phone reception within the town usually works, but can be intermittent. No mobile phone reception for long distances before and after the town - and in the Karoo between towns in general.

Convenient place to stay over in the north-east Karoo.

On our way from the Western Cape (desert flowers) to Gauteng we decided to take the R27-R63-R386 to Prieska to experience the real silent Karoo in the North Cape. Carnarvon was the logical overnight stop and we selected the Lord Carnarvon House as the best option to stay overnight. The rooms are located in the enclosed yard providing a quiet basic outfitted room and convenient parking.

Ons ervaring hier was wonderlik!

Pieter het ons hartlik verwelkom en ons het ongelooflik lekker geëet met aandete en ontbyt. Die gastehuis self is keurig versier met net genoeg om jou nostalgie te prikkel maar jou steeds gemaklik en tuis te laat voel. Ons sal dit definitief aanbeveel.

Our experience here was great!

Pieter gave us a warm welcome and we ate incredibly well with dinner and breakfast. The guest house itself is tastefully decorated with just enough to stir your nostalgia but still make you feel comfortable and at home. We would definitely recommend it.
