Karoo Country Inn Hotel
In 1852, it was decided to establish a town on the banks of the Klein Brak River. A site for Middelburg was chosen, as its name implies, in the very centre of a circle of other platteland towns, namely Graaff-Reinet, Cradock and Colesberg. There is a museum of local history which boasts a fine collection of rifles. Visit the market square where you can find the old Water pump, a gift from Queen Victoria in 1887, and the Wall of Remembrance in memory of all who fell during the Anglo-Boer War, the two World Wars and the bush war in Namibia. The Burger Monument was erected in 1929 to honour the burgers who died in the Anglo-Boer War. Just outside the town there is the Grootfontein Agricultural Development Institute and College, originally established by the British Army as a military peace-keeping camp after the Anglo-Boer War. Today Middelburg is the centre of a sheep farming area and it’s motto ‘Cedant Arma Aretro’ invites the exchange of swords for ploughshares.
The Karoo Country Inn, built in 1853, is a beautifully restored Cape Victorian
hotel that takes you back to those frontier days. The ambience inside the
hotel is perfectly matched to the ‘big sky’ African landscape outside. A
traditional English breakfast buffet is served each morning. Room service is
