Andries Stockenstrom

Andries Stockenström is a charming old guesthouse hidden away in the historic town of Graaf-Reinet, in the Karoo Midlands. An intimate retreat, it offers just six rooms.

Tucked away in old Graaff-Reinet, a historic town in the heart of the Karoo Midlands, Andries Stockenström is a gracious old manor house offering Karoo-style haute cuisine and the best South African hospitality. This private guest house is personally managed by owners Andre and Beatrice, and has won a number of awards for its excellent food and service. It is one of our very favourite guesthouses in the region.

Graaff-Reinet has a great deal to offer travellers. Stroll streets lined with Cape Dutch and Victorian-era architectural treasures, of which more than 200 are now considered National Monuments; visit the awesome Valley of Desolation and nearby nature reserve; or take a trip to the Owlhouse at Nieu Bethesda. Graaff Reinet is only a short drive from the private game reserves of the Eastern Cape and a scenic drive over the Tsitsikamma mountains to the Garden Route. Alternatively, simply relax on the pool terrace or in the lounge.


Andries Stockenström offers six en-suite double rooms. Three mini-suites are situated around the pool and have their own patios, while the three Veranda Rooms are situated on the verandah with French doors opening out onto the gardens. All of the rooms are individually furnished, and equipped with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning.


Breakfast is served on the dining room terrace. For dinner, tuck into absolutely superb French-Karoo style cuisine served in the dining room.
