"The perfect stopover "

Natalie Brand | 23 December 2017

Heather Murch | 9 October 2017

"A good night sleep and a nice hot bath"

"Great option in Colesberg"

(South Africa) Clyde Collins | 31 January 2017

"Very happy with our one night stay at The Lighthouse. Spacious, clean and modern room. Secure parking and quiet despite being on the main road through Colesberg (although we did have the double room at the back of the property).

Highly recommended."

"We traveled with our adult children and grandchild, and booked two rooms with Air Conditioning, as we know Colesburg summers. Our room was fine but the double room our children and grandchild had, only had air conditioning in one of the two rooms and it was hopelessly inadequate for the area. We were very disappointed. The room my wife and I occupied was very nice, and we were pleased. Thank you also to Johann and his wife for the assistance with my wife's tummy bug. we appreciated the concern."

"'"

(South Africa) Steve Feist | 25 December 2014

"The facilities are a little tired, although the owners are quite friendly and accommodating. Recommended as quite good value for money, although there is a lot of competition in the town and every second house seems to be a B&B.

"We enjoyed our stay and it is certainly a fascinating place. The owners/managers were incredibly friendly and helpful and directed us to where we could grab a bite after a long trip. Only one (small) criticism - the room could have done with an airing as it was a bit musty. Other than that it was a HUGE room which was a wonderful surprise after staying in a number of tiny boxes with minute bathrooms."


"Comfortable"

(South Africa) Troy O'Mant | 20 February 2013

"Comfortable accommodation and friendly hosts. In the morning there was no hot water, lucky it was not winter. Other than that ample safe parking and great spec's for the rooms - aircon's, etc. "


"Great stay"

(South Africa) Linda Meyer | 28 October 2012

"The owner was very friendly and the rooms was very neat and comfortable. When you arrive outside the establishment it does not look like a luxury establishment (main road, old town street view, etc.) but once you step inside it compares to some of the best B&B in the country."


"Outstanding"

(South Africa) Craig Johnson | 19 October 2012

"The decor and facilities were outstanding. Will definately stay over again when the opportunity presents itself."

"Colesburg is a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan cities.It has excellent place for dinner. Though quiet after dark we walked back and forth from the Die Platteland a place we selected to have dinner. Though wary about the silence & emptiness after dark we had a nice time at the restaurant and made friends there with people who worked far north of South Africa where we come from. As we paid the bill and walked back, the manager commented that the world is now a global village. "

"The temperature in the street outside was 36 deg Centigrade when we arrived after a long drive. Fortunately the Lighthouse is right there on the main street, well signposted, and easy to find. We were greeted by the owner/host, secure parking opened for us and shown to our room by him personally. The walls are the old double thick colonial walls, making the interior cool... a welcome change from outside. The gardens are serene, lovingly planted with indigenous cacti, trees and shrubs. There is air conditioning and overhead fans, a comfortable double bed, a most welcome bath en suite, in this day of shower only facilities! We were directed to three possible restaurants for the evening meal, all within easy walking distance, all of whom had telephone numbers listed in the room information. The morning was started with a good breakfast and great coffee again personally served by host/owners. This beats the impersonal lodge/motel by far."


"My overnight stay at the Lighthouse Guesthouse."

(South Africa) Mrs claassens | 24 June 2012

"The Lighthouse is conveniently situated, very comfortable, reasonably priced with breakfast not included and one can leave at the crack of dawn without disturbing anyone."


"Good"

(South Africa) Dr Madela-Mntla | 21 December 2010

"Easily accessible on the main road yet safe.
Friendly reception
Homely and cosy rooms
Quick processing of check-in
Very convenient to have access to a fridge, I just wished the tea/coffee facilities were in-room.
Will always recommend it anyone."


"Tranquil stopover"

(Netherlands) Harriet van Dijk | 21 October 2010

"Perfect place to stay over on the long haul through the Karoo. Very good bed, we awoke refreshed the next morning."
