Karoo Art Hotel

Tucked into a fold of the Langeberg Mountains, Barrydale is one of the most charming dorpies on R62, with a hotel that puts the funk back into country! Racing along the R62, it’s easy to bypass: don’t! Turn down the main road, easing to a halt in front of the Barrydale Karoo Hotel.

Not a cookie cutter or bland interior decor touch in sight. All rooms are en-suite with top quality mattresses and percale linen. Given its dinky size and value-for-money rates, the hotel has become increasingly popular as an exclusive-use venue for those wanting to celebrate any special occasion. The room configuration and rates are tailor-made to the requirements of some 30 plus friends and family. Aside from wandering the picturesque village streets or hiking in the surrounding mountains, you could unwind in the nearby natural hot springs. Relax around the large pool or get down at one of the regular live music events. Come as a stranger; leave as a friend as the Cape’s funkiest country hotel still offers that most vital ingredient: warm, old-fashioned Karoo hospitality.
