About Alpha Bed and Breakfast

Alpha Bed and Breakfast offers a two-bedroom, en-suite apartment with stone walls in the charming Karoo town of Sutherland on both a self-catering and bed and breakfast basis.

The unit is perfect for a family holiday, with one room featuring a double bed and the other room two single beds. In addition, an extra divan in the lounge area can accommodate a fifth person. Features include DStv and a fireplace for those cold winter nights, as well as a garden with barbecue facilities. All rooms also offer electric blankets to fend off the winter night chill.

Sutherland is well-known for its large telescope at the observatory, a mere 15 km from town, where day and night tours are also available. The museum, the birthplace of the Afrikaans writers and poets, NP van Wok Low and his brother, WEG Louw are worth a visit, as is the Dutch Reform Church, with its beautiful organ and history of the Anglo Boer War.

      'n Pragtige goed toegeruste woonstel. Lekker sonskyn vertrek met verwarmer, vuurherd en elektriese komberse. Het ons verblyf baie geniet. Baie lekker ontbyt gehad.

      We spent two nights at Alpha Bed and Breakfast on a self catering basis. Everything one could possibly need was there including a wind up lantern should the lights fail! Each bedroom had its own toilet shower which was great for our small group of oldies. The full DSTV was unexpected. For the price we paid and the accommodation plus extra's we received it was great value. Lot's of local information supplied too so that our visit to SALT and the star gazing was perfect.

      What a wonderful place to overnight. Everything was clean and neat and a breakfast box was packed for us as we had to leave early the next morning. Thank you for your hospitality. A big yes to use Alpha Bed and Breakfast for a one stopper or longer stay.
