      Great accomodation in town, with a bonus of feeling like you are out on a farm with its peaceful and spacious setting. The hosts, the Jaquets, are lovely people and spoils one with fresh dairy products, meusli and rusks. Thank you very much for the lovely two nights we could enjoy on your property.

      What a lovely place to stay in Prince Albert. Clean, neat and ample space! Friendly welcome and close to main street. We had coffee outside under the Karoo stars and enjoyed the local milk and yogurt provided. Thank you Linda!

      I would highly recommend Dorpsplaas. It caters for all ones needs and is an attractive spacious and comfortable oasis in a hot Karoo.Set in a cool and tranquil garden/boutique olive farm at the edge of town, it is beautifully maintained and offers the use of a swimming pool.A short walk takes you into the town of Prince Albert with all its attractions and restaurants.We rated this the best accommodation of our 5 day trip.
