Both service and condition of rooms etc. are great.

Was a very pleasant place for a stopover or even to stay for a few days and will definitely be back.

Wonderlike ervaring.

DIe diens is uitstekend. Die kos was heerlik. Geen moeite was te veel nie. Ek sal die plek defintief aanbeveel. Dit is nie ver van die N1 af nie en tog het mens die rustigheid van 'n plaas. Die kamer is geruil sadat ons nie trappe hoef te klim nie. 'n Yskas in die kamer sal 'n baie goeie toevoeging wees.

Wonderful experience.

The service is excellent. The food was delicious. No effort was too much. I would definitely recommend the place. It is not far from the N1 and yet you have the tranquility of a farm. The room was changed so we didn't have to climb stairs. A fridge in the room would be a very nice addition.

Baie mooi plek en die diens was fantasties. Ons gasheer was ook puik.

Na 'n dag se ry is dit 'n oase om daar te ontspan. Met die diere om jou en heerlike etes, het ons dit geniet.

Very nice place and the service was fantastic. Our host was also great.

After a day's driving it is an oasis to relax there. With the animals around you and delicious meals, we enjoyed it.

Heerlike oornagverblyf, sou ook 2 dae kon spandeer om plaas en omgewing te verken.

Ons ervaring was baie goed van 'n pragtige historiese huis. Diens was besonder goed. Daar is nie lugversorging in die kamer nie, wat sekerlik in die mid somer nodig sal wees.

Lovely overnight stay, could also spend 2 days exploring farm and surroundings.

Our experience was very good from a beautiful historic house. Service was exceptionally good. There is no air conditioning in the room, which will certainly be needed in the middle of summer.

7-ster-ervaring.

Chargo Lodge bied 'n 7-ster-ervaring op 'n pragtige Karooplaas net langs die N1 buite Colesberg. Uitstekende verblyf, keurig voorbereide en smaaklike aandete en ontbyt. Die eienaars is self betrokke by die gastehuis en is uitstekende gashere. Vooraf kommunikasie was baie goed en ontvangs hartlik en opreg. Ek sal beslis weer en weer hier oorbly. Baie dankie Charles en Megan.

7 star experience.

Chargo Lodge offers a 7-star experience on a beautiful Karoo farm just off the N1 outside Colesberg. Excellent accommodation, carefully prepared and tasty dinner and breakfast. The owners themselves are involved in the guest house and are excellent hosts. Prior communication was very good and reception warm and sincere. I will definitely stay here again and again. Thank you very much Charles and Megan.

Not a boutique hotel and over priced.

Loved the hosts. But rooms were not boutique level. No bed side lamps, only one fan in one room, no dustbins, no bar fridge so milk stayed out over night, bathroom windows and bedroom windows didn't open. Bath tub badly stained and water didn't come out. Not en-suite so don't prove as if it is en-suite. Dinner was good but not 5 star and breakfast we left too early for so we got cold toasted sandwiches and no beverage.

Lot of potential but to charge the rate they do some attention to detail required.

Ancient fan in room had two speeds - full blast or off. Aircon should be standard. Poly cotton sheets - good cotton should be standard. No mosquito net or anti-mosquito spray provided Bathroom (shower only) in our room was very small with no place to put toiletry bag. Garden furniture in shade for the garden would be nice. Dinner was excellent but breakfast was ordinary.

Ek het meer verwag. Daar was nie 'n lugversorger of TV in my kamer nie. Ek het nie gebly vir ontbyt nie, maar die aandete was heerlik.

Ek het regitig meer verwag van 'n Boutique Game Lodge. Die kamers is skoon maar karig. Ek het meer verwag vir die prys van R1350.

Vriendelike personeel.

Die personeel is baie vriendelik en gasvry. Ons het die wildrit baie geniet. Aandete en ontbyt was baie lekker. Die badkamers is egter baie ongerieflik, veral die bad kort aandag. Daar is nie yskassies in die kamers nie en ook nie lugversorging nie, wat aan te beveel is.

Friendly staff.

The staff is very friendly and hospitable. We really enjoyed the game drive. Dinner and breakfast were very nice. However, the bathrooms are very inconvenient, especially the bath needs attention. There are no bar fridges in the rooms nor air conditioning, which is to be recommended.

Beautiful venue and setting.

Really nice. Food is excellent and ladies that work there are very helpful and amazing. I would say they need a small fridge in the room with water as this was an issue that there was no cold water to drink or any place to put something into a fridge to keep cool. Noise factor is an issue with rooms having interleading doors so small children crying etc can easily be heard.

Karoo-hartlikheid op sy beste!

Charles en Megan is sommer gashere duisend! Die hartlikheid en gasvryheid waarmee ons by Chargo ontvang is, het ons eerder laat voel soos lang verlore familielede, wat ná 'n lang tyd weer tuiskom, as die onbekende reisigers wat ons eintlik was. In hierdie pragtige plek, ryk aan geskiedenis, het ons weggelê aan hartskos wat met soveel sorg voorberei is. Heerlik geslaap in die stilte van die Karoo en ons verkyk aan die wild wat met ooglopende liefde hier versorg en bewaar word. Chargo is 'n besonderse plek met besonderse mense.

Karoo cordiality at its best!

Charles and Megan are simply wonderful hosts! The warmth and hospitality with which we were received at Chargo made us feel more like long lost family members, returning home after a long time, than the unknown travelers we actually were. In this beautiful place, rich in history, we indulged in hearty food prepared with so much care. We slept wonderfully in the silence of the Karoo and we gazed at the wildlife that is cared for and preserved here with obvious love. Chargo is a special place with special people.

Pragtige, goedgeleë plek met uitstekende diens!

Ons het hier oornag op pad terug van George na Gauteng. Die plaas, Vanwyksfontein, is goed geleë - af van die N1 net buite Colesberg, en 15 minute se ry tot by Gariep. Die lodge is pragtig, met kraakhoutvloere, antieke meubels en ‘n geskiedenis wat strek tot die vroeë 1800’s. Hanrie en die staf was só vriendelik en behulpsaam en het heerlike kos bedien! Dit was ‘n perfekte manier om die jaar af te sluit!

Beautiful, well located place with excellent service!

We spent the night here on our way back from George to Gauteng. The farm, Vanwyksfontein, is well located - off the N1 just outside Colesberg, and a 15 minute drive to Gariep. The lodge is beautiful, with hardwood floors, antique furniture and a history that stretches back to the early 1800s. Hanrie and the staff were so friendly and helpful and served delicious food! It was a perfect way to end the year!
