About Gariep Gardens

Gariep Gardens Guest House is located in the Gariep Dam holiday village and is approximately halfway between Cape Town and Johannesburg. It is only a five minutes’ drive from the N1 Highway. Gariep Dam Village was voted tourist town of the year in 2010.

Gariep Gardens consists of three very private, yet different units. Each unit has its own parking bay and access to the fully enclosed pool and lapa area. The units have their own private lapas and braai areas. We certainly believe that Gariep Gardens has the best that Gariep Dam has to offer. It is the ideal place to break your journey and enjoy the most beautiful surroundings.

Gariep Gardens is part of the SunRose Group of Guesthouses. Its name is appropriate due to its lush gardens, vines, fruit trees, stunning pool and lapas. We offer comfort, style and privacy in lush gardens.

The accommodation is ideal for the weary travellers or those wanting to break away from the city rush. Take a minute to look up at the clear night skies, gaze at the trillions of stars and see the Milky Way. Hear the silence and realize that this is truly a special place.

Covid Safety Approved: We pledge to implement a high standard of hygiene and cleaning protocols to ensure the safest environment possible for our guests. We adhere to the industry safety protocols set out by the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA).

                      Hot water for a shower in the morning would have been nice.

                      Very comfortable and everything we needed for an overnight stay. It would be great if the garden lights could be turned off or the curtains were darker, everything else very nice.

                      I was told that the place I booked is full, how, I don't know. I was given a very poor place I didn't book, so I only spend one night then leave the following day, please refund my money for the next 3 days

                      Great accommodation for our stop over. All the basics you need. The geysee just ran out of water a bit too quick but overall good value for money. Would consider to stay again for a stop over.
