Verified reviewvery good

Our stay at 85 on Church has been an absolute delight. Yolande has been a wonderful host and made us feel most welcome. The house is just beautifully decorated, very spacious and makes you feel right at home. The garden is also stunning and quite big, with lots of space for kids to run around - or swim, when its nice and hot in summer. It is situated right on the main road, close to all the shops, restaurants and bars - everything within comfortable walking distance . We had a great stay - albeit way too short. Can really recommend to come stay with family or a few friends.

We had a wonderful 10 days stay at 85 on Church. Just wished we had booked longer. Yolande was so helpful and caring.

What a wonderful house At 85 on Church is! Our family absolutely loved staying there and missed out on half of Prince Albert's attractions because we enjoyed the pool and the verandas so much! This is definitely the guesthouse with the best interior, the best location and the best special touches that we've ever stayed at. Thank you so much. We will definitely be back.

Spacious, nice house, very well situated in the centre of Prince Albert within walking distance to everything. Well equipped kitchen, beautifully maintained and large garden with a pool.

Convenient, friendly, equipped with everything you need and loads more! At 85 on Church was a perfect stopover for our Swartberg adventures conveniently situated for strolls down the main road and visiting the local galleries and coffee shops. The house is prepared for any situation including floating around the pool on a lilo and brewing filter coffee. The kitchen was AmazInG, with everything under the sun including a cupcake tray and four frying pans! I would definitely stay there again in a heartbeat!

This property reflects the feeling you get when you arrive in the city of Prince Albert: awesome! not only you feel lost aside of the desert of the Karoo but also people and atmosphere are exactly how you want it to be on holiday! Simply great and chill!

Un nouveau visage de l'Afrique que je découvre en plein milieu du Karoo! Une petite ville tout à fait charmante et "riante" comme dirait une connaissance! Et, pour parfaire l'aventure, pour poser ses valises, une maison où l'on se sent bien! Rustique et moderne à la fois, juste ce qu'il faut pour aller avec ces paysages aussi désertiques que riches. Que de temps passés auprès du feu pour des braai inoubliables! Un salon cosy pour le Roiibos du soir (soirées d'hiver africain oblige) devant un bon feu! Idéalement situés, il nous a été facile de profiter de tout ce que propose la ville! Comme Ann et Yann, le marcher, le vendeur de tapis faits sur place (magnifiques), la vendeuse de bonnets de mohair et autres, le très interessant musée et j'en passe. Nous n'avons pu tester la piscine (hiver oblige) même si elle nous narguait tous les jours...A tester quand il fera plus chaud, ça doit être un délice!!! Merci pour ce très agréable accueil dans ce petit coin du Karoo!

Just a quick email to say a huge 'Thank You' for allowing us to stay at your gorgeous home. We were so comfortable there, we stayed an extra night And what a bonus to be next to the Swartburg Hotel, I didn't cook for three nights. The weather was beautiful, the dogs were thrilled skinny, we went to the Saturday morning market, I bought mohair socks which really do keep your feet warm, we had super walks, so all in all, a really wonderful time had by all.

Reis gepland? Zuid Afrika "Prince Albert" is de perfecte bestemming. Prince Albert is een klein stadje midden in een grootse natuur. Het ligt in de Karoo, een halfwoestijn. De zonsondergangen zijn ongelooflijk... Nachthemel bekijken onder begeleiding van professionele gids. Handelszaken - alles wat nodig is voor uw diner tot alles wat men zich kan dromen (vooral streekgebonden producten.) Verblijven in een mooie-welingerichte woning - s'morgens ontbijt op overdekt terras en s'avonds BBQ (braai) in de leuke tuin dicht bij het zwembad of lekker smullen voor de open haard in het gezellige salon. Ik kan het weten. Ik was er en vergeet het nooit!
