Best stopover in Colesburg

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Apr 2018
Travelling as a family of 4 from Cape Town to Durban we phoned a few friends to get a recommendation for a stopover near half way. The lighthouse came up more than once so we booked. We arrived at 21:00 which is the office closing time but were welcomed in as if we were the first guests to arrive that day. We booked a family suite with two bedrooms and the accommodation was full of character, comfortable and clean. the car was parked safely in a courtyard with a night guard and the whole experience was great. the airconditioned room made for a great nights sleep and we wouke refreshed and able to complete our journey knowing we will be stopping at The Lighthouse again soon.
Date of stay: January 2018
Room Tip: if you are leaving early, ask for a room opening onto the courtyard so you can leave without...

To be honest, I was a little concerned, how could a guest house at R720 a night for 2 people be any good.
Boy oh boy I was wrong, despite arriving almost 2hrs late due to trucking convoy we were greeted warmly.
We booked a twin... a huge room with 2 double beds, so comfie. Before we could ask, we were immediately directed to the only restaurant in town that was open. Colesburg is not for tourists, it is a stop over to CT or PE or Afrika Burn, well worth breaking your journey at the lighthouse. A hidden gem in the Northern Cape

We had a pleasant stay at The Lighthouse Guesthouse. The place was very neat and clean. Restaurants are very close by. Staying at the Lighthouse Guesthouse is good value for money. Very recommendable!

Enjoyed our stay at The Lighthouse Guesthouse. Rooms are very nice and the garden is beautiful - just the place to be to relax after a long trip. When we booked in, we were greeted by the friendliest old lady who ensured that our stay was even more pleasant. We requested assistance to have a braai the evening and staff went out of their way to make it possible. Thank you very much. I was a bit concerned that traffic from the main road will be a disturbance, but it was not. We travelled with our Harleys, and safe parking ensured that we could enjoy a good nights sleep without having to worry about the bikes safety. Can recommend this establishment to anybody.

Up to this trip, we've only stopped in Colesberg once in 30 years to " sleep over"

I do believe Lighthouse will see us twice on our annual trip to the coast....

Blackie absolute the most gracious host!

The Lighthouse is truly a hidden gem. The outside look and its location does not do justice to what the place has to offer. Thank you for making our long trip overnight stop magical. We will definitely use it again.
