DEAR GUESTS The 3 Chimneys Guest House is a charming Victorian Villa, built in 1900 and is packed full of original features such as, Oregon pine floors, lead pressed ceilings and many more. It was home to General Louis Botha in 1914. (Anglo-Boer war)Godwin & Joyce, your Hosts (owner operated), have newly renovated, extended and decorated the establishment, being sympathetic to the era but with your comfort in mind. Our vision is still evolving! It consists of 6 en-suite rooms of various sizes with an aim to accommodate the single business man/woman and families alike. Camping cot available extra and can fit in most rooms. We are renown for our personalized delicious meals and offer our set 3 course 'candlelight dinner' (Mrs Bucket :D) as well as a fresh fully cooked English breakfast in our dining room or in the tree shaded, bird friendly courtyard overlooking the swimming pool. (A kiddies menu always available)Our bar is fully licensed! Relax and enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the guest lounge (in front of a roaring fire in winter). There are 'board games' too & watch your favourite program/sport on a large plasma TV with full 'DStv service'. A 'grassed swing play area' has just been added for the kiddies. Our rooms are comfortable, beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean, air conditioned (Room 6 exception, has industrial ceiling fan) and offer tea/coffee facilities, bottled water, hairdryers, DStv 'hotel bouquet' (due to popular demand we have just added 'kyknet' and disneyJ'), Wi-Fi and mini desks for the businessman/woman. As we don't recommend you drink the tap water (lime) cold bottled water is on tap in the dining room. You are welcome to use our fridge/freezer, iron and “microwave facilities at off peak times in the kitchen.” Laundry by arrangement (for long stays).Your safety is also our concern. There are fire extinguishers at various points, 24 hr armed response, security gates and perimeter wire. Our parking area is behind gates with remote control for your convenience. Your happiness and comfort is OUR PRIORITY.

Booked the wrong date! My own fault but would have been helpful if the establishment made contact/enquired why we did not arrive. Only realised my mistake when I reveived a mail a week later to rate our stay !! Called 5he guest house immediately to enquire about correcting the date on the booking ... Only be told 'sorry for you'.

Relatively quiet guest house, the bit of road noise is off-set by the convenience of its location. Friendly and efficient staff assist you to quickly get settled in and also ensure you can get going safely the next morning
