Just need a place with en suite."
"We arrived unexpectedly late (had a breakdown) the staff were extremely accommodating and firendly"

The best meal of our trip was served there. Karoo lamb par excellence. "

"Something different and surpassed our expectations. Friendly staff and overall a pleasant relaxing stay."
"loved the round bed."
"Our one night stay at the Bethesda Tower was met with a friendly welcome. There was no hastle to look for a receptionist or keys eventhough we arrived after hours. The accommodation was simple and clean: just what we needed for a sleep over to shorten the drive."
"I loved the location but I found going outside to the bathroom in the middle of the night a little awkward. Also, not very attentive staff, especially when we tried to check out.. So much potential though."
"Self catering facilities was disappointing"
"The reviews thus far have not done this place justice!!! What an amazing experience and stay. Arty, rustic, charming, welcoming. Restaurant has the best menu from the three restaurants, however still new, has no liquor license yet, will have it soon though. Best stopover on our way back home from Ca..."more

"We stayed over for one very cold night and we had a very comfortable sleep.
You have to go outside and walk down the external staircase to get to the bathroom which is not ideal.
There are no facilities to make coffee in the rooms which I really missed.
The staff were very friendly, I had t..."

"Thank you for the stay! We can recommend it to anyone. The staff was friendly and the facilities up to expectations.

"Who wouldn't want to stay in a faerie tower!
Rates are super cheap I think mainly because the bathroom is not ensuite and 2 rooms share the same downstairs bathroom. So if you want privacy you have to book out the entire tower. Fantastic place to overnight if you want something unusual, the ..."

"The village of Nieu Bethesda is like walking in the past. Beautiful surroundings and landscape. We were very unlucky about the weather. It rained all day and night. The people of Bethesda where very happy with all that rain. Normally there is no rain for weeks. The tower room is romantic but everyth..."more
"Unique and interesting. Good food nicely prepared."
"Unusual setup in the Tower, but it absolutely unique. We loved the round bed, because it is so large. View over town is excellent. Food is out of this world if you consider the logistics in getting a variety of food to the town. Service is quick and very friendly. The staff makes you feel really we..."more

Sleeping in this tower gives you the feeling of being a princess in a fairy tale.

"It’s a lovely place, nice accommodation and the Hosts are friendly. There was a few hiccups with the plugs that didn’t work in the bottom room, so our head lamp in the bedroom couldn`t be switched on. Apart from that, we loved it and can recommend the place to anyone."
"We spent a night at the priory rooms in early July. My husband and I had the room upstairs and our 2 sons had the downstairs room. The bathroom was on the ground level and was shared by both rooms. Both rooms were heated and had comfortable beds. Even though it was winter, we did not feel the cold a..."more

"On our arrival the staff gave us a friendly welcome and the tower exceeded or wildest imagination.

How disappointed we were to find that the stairs were not an i..."more

"We had a lovely time at the Tower. We arrived late, after a long day on the road, and found nowhere to have dinner open. The staff was so kind to prepare a lovely meal for us and we sat outside in the courtyard, in candlelight, like royalty. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the shower room mo..."more
"If you want to experience the Karoo as it is without the frills and tourist touches, the Bethesda Tower is the place to stay! Having stayed in the top room of the tower we did struggle with our luggage and camping fridge up the stairs but it was definitely worth it. We could see the steeple of the c..."more

"We loved the cosy comfort and attention to creative detail of Bethesda Tower. The friendly personnel added to the charm of the whole experience. Thank you!
"I stayed in the tower for three nights. The room was basic, but very cute and nicely appointed. To get to the bathroom I had to go down the stairs on the outside of the tower - which, I guess could be pretty chilly in the rainy season. Bring a raincoat. I absolutely loved my stay in Nieu Bathesd..."more
"The accommodation was neat and clean and the beds slept well. We found the steps a bit of a hassle and the bathrooms outside the building and down the stairs not very nice at night. We would absolutely hate to have to do it in winter! We loved the bub around the corner and the 'train ride' up the Lo..."more
