Newlands Guest House is a 19th century house that has been beautifully refurbished. While it retains its old-fashioned charm - think gorgeous wooden floors, high ceilings, and a quaint courtyard - the space has all the contemporary comforts and facilities you might need. We offer you a comfortable stay with all the necessary modern amenities, including DSTV and WiFi in all rooms.
When it comes to the arrangement of our guest house, we have a number of options, including the garden room, courtyard room, pool cottage and hibiscus room, all of which sleep two people and are ideal for couples. Each of these rooms boasts a king size bed and en-suite bathroom. The cypress room is a single sleeper with ¾ bed and en-suite bathroom.
We also offer three and four sleeper units, which are a great option for families - the alcis cottage and pool suite both have a king size beds and additional beds can be added in the second room.
If you prefer, we are able to swap the king size beds for twin beds. Please don't hesitate to let us know your preference when you make your booking.
All of our bedrooms have modern en-suite bathrooms.
The guest house has two comfortable lounges, which are perfect for families and friends to relax together. Our décor is simple and elegant, with a homely touch. It's important to us that you feel comfortable, so that you can really relax during your stay.
There is an honesty bar for your convenience and full breakfast is served daily in our dining room. For those who would like to enjoy a night in, evening meals or braai/barbeque can be organised by prior arrangement.
