For anyone that need a place to sleep over. We stayed in the pet friendly unit, it was great because of the enclosed area for the dogs. The room has everything you need and was clean. We were greeted by a friendly host. Very nice for a quick stay.

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Spotlessly clean and even a personal touch with fresh milk and water in the fridge. On a quiet side of Colesberg with very little traffic noise. Highly recommended.

The Barracks is the perfect spot for travelers to rest their heads. The building has character and charm, but the rooms contain modern amenities and luxuries. The hosts went out of their way to make us comfortable. The Barracks is in a lovely, peaceful area of town and is walking distance to great restaurants - veggie options are limited, but available.
