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.

                      Breakfast was fabulous and the staff were helpful and friendly.Thought the toiletries lookes a bit shabby in bottles with the screw on caps missing.

                      Maintenance of the pool could be improved.

                      I loved the shabby chic feel of the cottage

                      A blast from the past, and if you enjoy history, you have to experience the Victoria Hotel and its old-world charm firsthand. Walk the halls and step back in time. Sit in the diningroom and let Amos and his team present their famous buffet dinner. Don't be in a hurry.... savour each moment. It is so unique that you have to take your time in making lasting memories.
