Reviews from previous Klawer Hotel & Margo’s Restaurant guests
“Overall good, clean, very adequate accommodation. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our supper at the restaurant was top notch and worthy of 4 1/2 to 5 star rating. Will definitely recommend this establishment,” wrote Beryl d on their TripAdvisor page.
Paul983 added; “it is the second time I have stayed here, once on the way to the Richtersveld and the last time on the way to Namibia, it is a great place to stay over, very friendly and helpful service, good food at good value, accommodation clean and comfortable, secure parking for your vehicle.”
“I stay at the Klawer hotel regularly on business. It’s a very well organised and comfortable hotel. The restaurant is excellent, Johan cooks the best beef rump on the west coast, along with the rest of his extensive menu. I would definitely stay over if I was travelling on holiday. If you’re a blue bulls supporter the pub is a must and a ‘bulls’ museum with hundreds of blue bulls memorabilia where you can sample local brew. I recommend a visit,” said amanda_woodburn.
