From the post office and gift shop to the (supposedly) haunted Lord Milner Hotel, museums, cute coffee shop and red bus - what to do in the tiny Victorian village of Matjiesfontein in South Africa's Western Cape
On the fringe of the Great Karoo, the Lord Milner Hotel appears as if out of a conjurer's hat: an authentic tribute to Victoriana, and the heart of Matjiesfontein Village. 15 rooms @ R1270 Hotel = The Lord Milner; Motel = kamers op hotelgronde
A Corner of the Bar This is one end of the fossilised 19th century Laird's Arms bar in the Karoo village of Matjiesfontein. Serious – this is the real, original thing, not some recreation. It is attached to the Lord Milner Hotel. There is a symphonion in the corner too. If you've never heard one of these playing, and have the chance, don't miss it.
