Karoo Art Hotel is a funky, relaxed and welcoming country hotel situated in the Klein Karoo on the scenic Route 62 between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn or Cape Town and the Garden Route, in the farming village of Barrydale. This charming hotel offers the most vital ingredient: warm, old-fashioned Karoo hospitality.

The 15 rooms are all completely individual in character, some with beautiful views overlooking the village. Quirky, relaxed and comfortable, the Karoo Art Hotel offers its guests old-fashioned Karoo hospitality, a country experience with a twist that includes interesting artwork and colourful décor. Whichever room you choose, you get that extra quality that counts: top quality mattresses, soft percale linen and piping-hot showers. With the exception of the Garden Suite, all rooms are located on the first floor, some with views from balconies overlooking the village or garden. Other in-room facilities include in-room bathrooms with shower and bath, or shower only, fans, gas heaters, electric blankets, hair dryers, Wi-Fi and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Please be aware that the TV's in our rooms are not currently operational but we have a TV with the full DSTV package available in our bar.

The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner and serves great country food with a Klein Karoo twist. The hotel is a member of the international food guild Chaine des Rotisseurs and has established itself as one of the most popular stops for travellers on the Route 62, offering a true Klein Karoo food & wine experience.

Guests love sharing a drink at the bar which is still the social heart of the village, and has been since 1888. There is often live music evenings in the bar that attract a small, diverse, friendly crowd of young and old. Our gardens and large swimming pool are perfect for those hot summer days and the lounge with fireplace invites a glass of Klein Karoo port during winter months.

Barrydale is within easy reach of the famous Tradouw Pass, Warmwaterberg hot water springs, Barrydale Cellar, Joubert-Tradouw Private Cellar and the well known lunch stop Ronnie’s Sex Shop. Other activities include hiking, mountain biking, quad biking, horse riding and so much more.
