About Karroo Theatrical Hotel


Steytlerville's premiere accommodation and "must do" experience.

An oasis of style and authentic karoo cuisine, renowned for it's friendly hosts and homely atmosphere. Welcome to the home of Jacques and Mark where glitz and burlesque meet over a grand piano.

Situated on a farm outside of town - you have escaped to calm and privacy. An unpretentious welcome by our entourage of furry four legged friends assures that you are made to feel completely at home.

Put your feet up and relax on one of the deep comfort couches on our stoep. Be entranced by the tranquillity. Cleanse your lungs inhaling the purest karoo air. Embrace the space and magnificent views of wide open plains and surrounding mountains. Enjoy our garden, manicured lawns and the sparkling pool, or take a sunset stroll to our dam where you can observe the abundance of bird life.

Oscar’s private bar, reserved for residents only, boasts an antique snooker table which may entice you to engage in a game and rediscover your skills whilst quenching your thirst.

Children are welcome and there is abundance of things to keep them occupied and entertained.

On week nights, dinner is a la carte. Jacque’s menu offers a variety of tasty dishes, including vegan and vegetarian which he lovingly prepares himself. Whilst dining, you may request that Mark serenades you on his Bluethner grand piano, and Jacques may even render a song or two. As a dessert, nothing can quite match Jacque’s freshly made waffles and home made ice cream drizzled with syrup.

Every Saturday night “Grimaldi’s Theatre Hall” is abuzz with excitement as guests are treated to a delectable three course, candle lit "boerekos" dinner together with a sleek and glitzy show. “The Steytlerville Follies” is presented by Freddy Ferrari and stars the legendary Karoovian diva, Dame Leyla Lamborgini.

Before you retire experience the joyful extravaganza of a star filled sky. Perfect preambles to a most comfortable and refreshing sleep.

When you awaken in the morning a scrumptious buffet breakfast awaits you ensuring a satisfying start to a new day.

We look forward to the opportunity to provide you with excellent service matched with outstanding hospitality.

Booking is essential.

We stayed for one night, unfortunately not on a Saturday for the famous show, but still had a great time. Friendly hosts. Lots of animals.

We had been planning to visit the Hotel for a while and eventually got down to doing it. I was quite interested to hear what my husband thought of the experience being the outdoor, sporting type. He had a ball! The show blew him away and he thoroughly enjoyed the music. The wonderful classical music really got him going. Mark and Jacques run the whole setup so professionally that you could not ask for more. Great place, great food, good boerekos and great attention to everything without being in your face. The weather let us down a bit but I would love to return with all the family and friends...
