About Die Tuishuise & Victoria Manor

Die Tuishuise & Victoria Manor consists of 25 restored Karoo cottages in Market Street, Cradock. Each cottage is decorated antiques and period prints to capture Settler living at the turn of the century. Recipient of the Simon van der Stel gold medal for restoration and the AA Heritage accommodation award in 1999, it is like stepping back in time.

Typical Karoo dinners are served at the Victoria manor, specialties include Karoo lamb, boboties, chicken pies etc. Die Tuishuise is an elegant collection of beautifully restored Victorian era crafts-men’s houses in Cradock, the frontier town at the eastern edge of the Great Karoo.

More than two dozen Tuishuise line Market Street up to the Victoria Manor, a grand old colonial hotel that welcomes you with hearty country fare, décor from the days of Cecil John Rhodes, Olive Schreiner and the droves of adventurers who passed here en route to the hinterland.

Modern day over landers crossing South Africa on holiday and business groups looking for inspiration stay at Die Tuishuise, where they are received like old friends and treated like gentry. Cradock is a place of literary legends, war heroes and anti-Apartheid struggle icons. But it is perhaps best known for street level, day-to-day, warmth and kindness – so typical of much of the Eastern Cape.

For nature lovers, Die Tuishuise are a great base from which to explore the unique landscapes, animals and plants of the nearby Mountain Zebra National Park.

Spa: Karoo Wellness Studio - All Detox, Relaxation and Grooming Treatments are performed by internationally qualified Therapists (Lucille, Inge & Almarie) who have the highest regard for service excellence, professionalism and hygienic practice.

                      The breakfast was good, you should paint all Die Tuishuise in different bright colors like it used to be years ago

                      We stayed in a very comfortable and safe clean huisie, Harry Potter, which Lisa kindly showed us first and made sure we were happy. The staff were attentive and friendly. Buffet was excellent and value for money.

                      We happened to stay at the Victorian Manor on a day when temperatures hit 39 degrees Celsius. The air con in our room seemed to be playing up but we were assisted by Vernon who provided us with a portable fan. Our bathroom did not measure up to the standards we are familiar with elsewhere. The dinner was economical, well prepared and very tasty. The breakfast too was superb. Amos the waiter is a superstar and deserves the greatest praise! All in all, we were happy.

                      Great place to stay - great facilities, clean, well located and friendly service. We will be back to stay again!
