It was my first stay at this establishment but definitely not my last. My room was spacious and very neat and we'll decorated. I liked the office desk facing the window which made for a great source of natural light while I worked on my laptop . The room had DSTV and the Television was HD which I enjoyed . It was extremely hot when I arrived but the aircon worked perfectly to make me forget about the heat outside my room. Breakfast the next morning was a buffet breakfast , I must single out the cheese grillers which complimented the rest of the breakfast. Cereals , juice , coffee , tea and yogurt was also available. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is from 07:00 until 09:00 . I arrived at breakfast at 08:55 but was still greeted very friendly and I could enjoy my breakfast without feeling hurried . This establishment also serves dinner but prior arrangement needs to be made . The only negative aspect is that the rooms at the back has no shade ports or cover for vehicles . But this is a great place to stay and I will definitely be back here when next in Welkom. The establishment is also close to a shopping mall .

This place is fantastic to stay at. There are many rooms which are well fitted with comfortable beds and showers built for someone over 4ft tall which is a welcome surprise at any guesthouse. There stalf are friendly especially the cook and a pleasure to be around. The food is fantastic. There covid protocols are well established and safe to use. The only complaint is because of the name I expected a small wooden ship in the parking lot😋

Came back to Welkom after a long drive from Durban and I hadn’t booked a guest house. In fact I was trying to find a place I had stayed at with my family back in 2017 & 2019.
However saw this place when driving around. Thought I would check it out and I’m actually glad I stopped here. Management was very welcoming and what a gem ones I got to the room. It’s a 4 star rated place and the rooms lives up to that.
Nice and clean with everything you would want in a room. This is my new place to stay in Welkom.
Easy to find close to everything and fundamentally it’s fair money.
I normally don’t write reviews before I have left, but I’m very happy and looking forward to coming back again.

Stayed in Captain's Cabin for nearly a week for a friend's wedding - this place is wonderful - the rooms are fantastic - I could not fault the room, or the service (Sissy - your laundry service is the best!). The only criticism I could make is that your beds are too big - I couldn't find my husband in the morning - Roy and Suzette, well done!

My Heart and I both agree that we will always come back here everytime we visit my family. At first we googled and searched for something we would both be comfortable with, but we kept saying we will be back. When we arrived at Captain's Cabin, we found exactly what we were looking for and we immediately paid.

It's a perfect home.

It is difficult to find somewhere of this quality in Welkom that has 20 rooms. I took a group of officvials down for a race meeting and I heard nothing but praise from the group. Nothing was too much trouble as even breakfasts were made available when ever required to get us top the circuit in time.
My wife and I hate perfume spray though which I suppose is used to get rid of cigarrette smells.
