The Lord Carnarvon Guest House

Frans Carel Te Water built this beautiful Karoo house in 1886. The house has been restored to its former glory, with a mixture of modern facilities and Karoo antiques, and has lots of character and evokes memories of a bygone era of Karoo grandeur.

Twenty six air-conditioned rooms are available, as well as satellite TV, and a lounge with a cosy fireplace.  Four of the rooms are separate flats, originally built as communion rooms (nagmaalkamers) for use by local farmers, decades ago, on their traditional monthly visit to the town.

Limited self catering facilities are available, but we offer traditional Karoo meals at our restaurant, Lord's Kitchen at 13 Victoria street.
