The heart of the Karoo, a fairy tale wedding........at Drostdy Hotel....... Spectacular place.
I fell in love with this venue.
If you are after a Karoo Wedding which is the in thing at the moment, you have to view The Drostdy Hotel in Graaff-Reinet.
The Drostdy Hotel offers a total of 48 beautifully styled rooms. Stretch’s Court incorporates 31 rooms, the Ferreira precinct hosts 7 rooms in their own secluded area and Kromm’s Court an additional 10 rooms. The Hotel offers the following room categories: 8 Bachelor Rooms, 17 Standard Rooms including 1 Paraplegic Room, 15 Executive Rooms and 8 Suites. They even have Complimentary Nespresso style pod coffee, herbal teas and biscuits in room. Brides to be..... Just imagine how nice your body feels after a visit to their Spa and getting into bed with crisp 100% Cotton bedding.......need I say more?
I was also very happy to have access to WIFI as I am a bit of a techi and need to access the internet on a daily basis.
As you can see more than enough accommodation for the perfect fairy tale wedding. You have to see the grounds to believe it! its a magical place!! When I saw this place it was like a Bridal Magazine Advert, a place I could never imagine existing in this historical town.
I also found it to be a very nice half way mark for guest travelling from Bloemfontein, Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cradock.....any of these surrounding areas can easily use this venue for a perfect fairy-tale wedding.
Just picture this beautiful setting in the garden with fairy lights in the trees and long tables with lanterns, Champaign and laughter.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Graaff-Reinet is surrounded by the Camdeboo National Park, such a great attraction for the guests to enjoy.

You can also spice up your weekend with a helicopter flight over the Karoo area.

The on-site restaurant serves a selection of decadent meals and is open daily for breakfast lunch and dinner.
I had to send my complements to the chef as I found the food to be of very high standard and I always feel that we need to give credit where it is due.
Needless to say you cant go wrong with the food at your wedding, no matter what package you choose to go with, you will be happy with the professionalism, meals, service and of course with your wedding.
I really felt that they went out of their way to make it special, the people are just different in the Karoo, very hospitable.
I am very Happy to give the Drostdy-Hotel a full rating or even more if I could.

Due to the fact that I sometimes photograph high profile clients and celebrities, I am bound by contract and I can't upload their wedding photos. Some of the images above are supplied to give you a great idea of the venue.
