Driving through the Karoo from the interior to the Eastern or Southern Cape coast (or the other way around) and looking for a spot to sleep over? The Karoo Heartland has some excellent overnighting spots in towns like Cradock, Graaff-Reinet, Nieu-Bethesda and Somerset East. If Cradock is your overnight destination of choice then you really don’t need to look any further than the iconic Tuishuise and Victoria Manor Hotel.
Die Tuishuise on Market Street in Cradock is made up of 30 beautifully restored Karoo style cottages. These cottages date back to the 1840’s and are all furnished with antique furniture yet also includes all the modern amenities travelers require. The Victoria Manor Hotel at the top of the street is one of the oldest hotels in South Africa and was built in 1848.
