Guest Reviews

Accommodation is just what we do!!! Since our ancestor, Thomas Hartly, established the well known “Pig and Whistle” at Bathurst in the Eastern Cape during the 1800's, and our Battiss family who operated the Battiss Hotel in Somerset East, we provided accommodation from generation to generation. We offer contemporary living from overnight accommodation to longer term stays. Lodgings and surroundings are super spacious, complimenting the vastness of the Karoo. Modern with a touch of period furniture, providing a base to rest on that business trip, a breakaway from the city to explore the surrounding area, or a short term home, we have you covered! Centrally positioned, there are two access points. Pedestrian access is in the main street within 200m to restaurants, business centre and schools. Our back or vehicle entrance, takes you within walking and cycling distance to the mountain, golf course and heritage walk. You have the sheer luxury of parking your vehicle and walking wherever you want to go. This is Karoo life! You really have the best of both worlds.
