There’s plenty to interest you and lots to do in Prince Albert. We are here to ensure your stay will be pleasant and offer you excellent accommodation in our spacious rooms.



All four of our en-suite garden rooms have full Air-conditioning/heating. Every room has its own private stoep which is in the shade from mid-morning onwards, every room has its own private entrance with stable doors. The rooms either have a queen size bed or two 3/4 size single beds.

They have natural reeded ceilings, tiled floors and are simply furnished. We supply complementary tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water and homemade rusks. We also offer free Wi-Fi on the whole site and off road parking.

We want you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of Prince Albert and to that end all of our rooms have no TV, they are also free from noisy fridges running all night (however if you have perishables with you there is a communal fridge for your use and you are more than welcome to store your things in our own fridges or freezers).

With all this in mind we do not allow children under the age of 14 to stay either.
