About Karoo Art Hotel

A stay at this funky Klein Karoo hotel is an experience that canít be missed! Just off the magnificently scenic Route 62, only 2.5 hours from Cape Town (en route between Cape Town and the Garden Route / Cango Caves), youíll find the Karoo Art Hotel nestled in the sun drenched valley of the Langeberg Mountains. Even in winter the day time temperature is moderate.


The hotel has 15 rooms so itís easy enough to book the whole hotel and fill it exclusively with your friends for a special occasion or just a good party. We have a variety of catering options available and can tailor-make a weekend to suit your occasion. We have a piano, a CD player, DVD and even a turntable with a great selection of vinyl records in the bar. Guests are also invited to bring their own vinyls and play DJ themselves!

The on-site Belanti Theatre and Bioscope is the hotelís main venue for weddings, birthday functions and other events. A new 40-seater private cinema has been installed in the gallery of the Belanti.

Our rates include a hearty Karoo breakfast and we offer greatly reduced prices when you book the whole hotel for one night or more. We also offer free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.

Wining and Dining

We have an extensive wine list, which includes the best local wines, in our fully stocked bar. Our wine list has won the prestigious 2014 Diners Club Wine List Diamond Award. Cigars, single malt whiskeys and cognacs are also available for the connoisseur. Guest can enjoy dinner in the hotelís own award-winning restaurant. The emphasis is on South African traditional food, particularly Karoo dishes, all designed with a twist. The restaurant is a member of the international gastronomic guild ChaÓne des Rộtisseurs and a winner of the Klein Karoo Gourmand Restaurant Award.


Barrydale offers the visitor much to see and explore Ė aside from the beautiful walks in the area you can browse the picturesque village of Barrydale, take a drive though the scenic Tradauw Pass which is very close by, unwind in the hot springs, a 20 minute drive from the hotel or just relax in front of the open fires and enjoy fine wines, ports and bubbly in our character-filled bar.

This eclectic hotel is a mix of old and new and has something to offer for everyone.
