Jurie is a lovely host and take special care with every guest he checks in. He goes the extra mile to help with secure parking and the rooms are clean with lovely bedding. He takes extra care of small detail and guests needs like the scissor you normally dont find in accommodation rooms. The water jug, flask and his cutlery is of good quality. Truly a person with good taste and proud of his business. Lovely place to relax and have a good nights rest after a long and stressful travel. Thank you Jurie. GOD BLESS

My wife & I stayed over on 13 Dec 2020 after a long trip from Durban to Cape Town. Colesberg is very ideal as a half way stop. On arrival, we were welcomed by a friendly gentlemen who showed us our room and parking making sure to sanitise the pen, keys, etc. A short tour of our room was done by him so that we are familiar with the Tv, keys, etc. We were very happy with the guest house which was very spacious and comfortable, catering for all our needs. Plenty of reading material was available to keep occupied and relax .We had a good nights sleep and continued our journey the next morning.

We had to sleep over in Colesberg and randomly tried out Toverberg Guest Houses.
What a pleasant surprise! The host was super helpful, the linen and towels were fresh and of good quality and the general attention to detail is superb. Finding that there was actually a plunger and ground coffee when we woke up was the cherry on the cake. Thank you very much for a great stay!

Our family stayed here overnight on the trip back to Johannesburg. The cottage had two full bedrooms en suite which were clean and well appointed. Although the cottage was advertised as self catering, the living room was modified to have a kitchenette. Braai outside, Bar fridge, microwave and kettle, but no kitchen sink.So no place to prepare food or wash dishes. It was suitable to make coffee and eat a bowl of cereal. We would have done better to eat in one of the very close by restaurants which also deliver self catering

The unit was exceptionally clean, very spacious and sleeps 4. There were only single beds in this unit though. The beds all had electric blankets fitted which I would not have been able to survive the cold night without. This was a life saver on the night I spent there as it was close to freezing point at about 8pm. The unit had a big garage where I could safely park my car for the night. It can easily fir a big SUV and a trailer inside. Additional parking for 2 more cars in front of the garage is available, but that is accessible from the street. Each of the 2 bedrooms has aircon units with heater function. I switched it on at max heat shortly after I arrived, but the room was still very cold 2 hours later. It could be because it was so cold outside or because it didn't work, I can't say for sure but it made little to no difference to the room temperature. If the aircon was switched on a few hours earlier, it would have warmed up more than just a freezing house. Overall, the house was exceptionally clean in every way. When my reservation was confirmed, the owner also send me menu's from local restaurants so that I can pre-order supper for the night. He knew I would traveled far that day and this gesture was very helpful during the lockdown.Besides the cold weather, I cannot say anything negative about my experience. I would definitely return there if I ever have to drive between JHB and CT again.

Toverberg provided me a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit , which contained everything a business traveller needs - good wifi and a phone charger next to the bed !
Colesberg is chilly in winter ( minus 1 just out of town in the morning ) and the electric blanket was a welcome touch .
Easy to book from the road if you save the number and easy to find .,
In normal times it would be pleasant to walk to a nearby restaurant in the evening

Perfect stopover between Johannesburg and Cape Town. We were warmly welcomed by Jurie. The large 2 bedroom propert, both en-suite, is centrally located and is within walking distance to restaurants. Although it was a brief stopover, the stay was very comfortable.

If you're looking for a stopover or even a weekend away where most of your adventures will be happening outside of your accommodation to explore the little town of Colesberg, this place ticked all my boxes. My room had a little tea/lounge area with a couch and everything you need to settle in including its own little library. The bedroom was double volume with 2 super clean and comfortable single beds with all the extra blankets you need for those exceptionally cold nights out there. The bathroom heater was a luxury for me and made my 4am check out cosy and easy. The WiFi was really solid too. If you're looking for a spot as a stay over, and looking for value for money, this is it. Thank you Toverberg for making my stop over solo trip to CT super smooth. I'll be back for sure. :)

Toverberg is a true gem. Jurie is the perfect host who is very knowledgeable about the area. The room itself was equipped with all the essentials and the beds were immaculately clean and comfortable. I will not hesitate to recommend this guesthouse. It is the perfect stopover to or from Cape Town.

The accommodation has a pleasant and respectful "historic" feel to it: it is as if one steps back in time - without missing any necessity or convenience one may want/need. The fine detail displayed everywhere, the lock-up garage, the outside "kuier" area and more make the stay quite unique, relaxing and safe, especially after a day on the road or of exploring the interesting area.. The units are centrally located in peaceful environs, close to all other amenities. Real Karoo cuisine is within easy and safe walking distance, fuel and more is available around the corner. Toverberg Guest Houses offer convenient options for different needs at good value for money.
