DEAR GUESTSThe 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.

We stayed here for one nite during busy dec period and was shocked that the place is poorly managed by the owners due to the following: 1) we had water on floor in the bathroom when we arrived and it turned out that there was a burst pipe in toilet resulting in major plumbing

You arrived screaming abuse at me about 'a burst pipe in the wall', something beyond our control. These things happen unfortunately, usually at the most inconvenient times. If a had another room available I would have moved you immediately. All I could do was call in the emergency pllumber who fixed the problem immediately. You created such a horrible atmosphere that all our Guests were affected and as a result you ruined their stay. As for the electrics, strange that it tripped twice during your stay ....never before nor after?... I notice we wern't thanked for the free breakfast....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 3 Chimneys. After driving 9hours it was a refreshing break. We swam in the pool which was cool and lovely. The rooms are beautifully furnished. The bedding and beds were extremely comfortable and luxurious. We did not eat there due to time

If you really need to stay in Beaufort West, the 3 Chimneys is probably as good as anywhere else. The positives are that it is on the main drag through town. It is easy to find and there is a secure place to park. The welcome sherry was welcome and I got everything I expected

The staff were friendly and informative. We only stayed one night. The room was large and well maintained. There is a kitchen that can be used by guests. I had a chance to walk around the house before leaving. It is lovely and well decorated.

An old home that has been well cared for and has a couple of modern touches. The rooms are small to standard size. The bathroom in my room was particularly small and cramped...but clean. TV available in the rooms. Within walking distance of a few eating places. There's a

I didn't think installing 'double glasing' in the back rooms was neccessary as they are quite protected but obviously 'light sleepers' are still affected?. There are sleeping aides in the little jar next to the bed. Thank you for your review and giving us the opportunity to explain the negative issues. All the best for 2017

"What room you book won't matter because they'll put you where they please regardless of your booking."
"Twin room with the shower at the front of the guest house. There were trucks passing all night, but it didn't affect our sleep"
"Room opposite Pool, but other rooms are also great."
"Further back in the house away from the main street would be better"
"Think the outside rooms are better. There are no squeecky floors to annoy anyone and its close to the pool."
