    11 July 2017

    "We had another wonderful stay at Brakdakkies! Our children enjoyed visiting the ducks and playing in the old car, while we drank port on the stoep. Our cottage was clean and very well-equipped, with good quality linen and kitchen utensils, and we were very snug despite the chilly karoo night. It's great to stay in a place where so much care has been put into appearances."

    "Really nice cottage on a large plot in a quiet part of town but just a few minutes from everything. It is equipped with all you need for a self catering stay and has a small plunge pool which comes in very handy on those hot Prince Albert days. Would definitely stay again and recommend.<br />"

  • "Lovely experience"

    10 December 2013

    "Lovely "different" experience, especially if you like antiques. TV would have been nice as nights could be boring if you are traveling with kids. Was looking forward to soaking in the splash pool but still a bit chilly. Kids took lovely photos with all the interesting "prop", had an enjoyable stay, nice to walk into a clean place!"

  • "Should have stayed longer"

    11 April 2011

    "A great place to stay. Perfectly appointed room, friendly people and a collection of bric-brac that made us salivate. Proof that the old is perfectly new with the right arrangement. Reflects the nature of Prince Albert - history with a lot to offer the traveller. Warrants more than an overnight stay, I'd say three days at least."
