About Charlie's Place

On your next visit to Barkly East in the Eastern Cape, why not stop at the old house of Charlie Wakeford, Charlie’s Place Guest House, now owned by Frikkie and Irmgard Tauber. The 1950s house, with its modern interior and farm-style finishings, offers four fully furnished en-suite rooms each named after family farms, namely Fairfield, Celidon, Knighton and Locksley. Two large family rooms and two houses are now available too.

After a good night's rest and farm breakfast, head out and enjoy the many attractions the scenic landscape has to offer. The well-known Tiffendell Ski-Resort, hunting, fly-fishing, horse riding, hiking, 4x4 routes and Bushman paintings are just some of many adventures on offer.

                              This place is in dire need of maintenance and cleanliness. The pictures tell a fairy tale, whilst the reality is totally different. A place to avoid!

                              The establishment's landline phone does not work and the cell number listed is never answered. It is therefore cannot be contacted.

                              Very clean and comfortable. Good sized room and bathroom with separate shower. Quiet and peaceful. Good value for money.

                              The place was neat, tidy and clean. For a overnight stay it was ok. On the negative side, the first night there was no rooibostee tea or milk.  That was rectified the next day. The bed lamp did not work. Although the place was for 4 people (we were only 2) there was only 3 coffee mugs, 2 unmatched glasses, and the cutlery was also not sufficient. The towel hooks in the bathroom kept on falling off and there weas no place to put your soap and shampoo in the shower. The tap on the shower came off and the shower head could not be adjusted

                              We had to phone and wait for someone to meet us at the B and B . The accommodation was adequate and warm. we had asked for dinner and had to pay upfront before arriving and it cost R120 per person - it consisted of two canned drinks, one meal of chicken shnitzel veggies and salad - thats it fro R120 pp - I think that was a bit expensive!!! The B and B in general had a cold unfriendly feel
