Gewel Guest House is set in the charming town of Ficksburg, where guests and delegates can escape to a quiet, hospitable environment.

Ideally situated two minutes from the town centre and a mere five kilometers from the Lesotho Border Post, our guest house has been restored to its vintage glory with hardwood floors, high ceilings and wallpaper with an old world charm, perfect for a weekend away, business stopovers and as a base for tourist attractions in the nearby vicinity.

We take pride in our warm hospitality and no sacrifice is too big to make sure your every need is met.

Beautifully decorated en-suite rooms and a self-catering unit boast coffee and tea making facilities as well as bathroom amenities. To make your stay even cozier, we offer electric blankets and heaters for the cold winter nights.

For our business clientele there is WiFi internet and all rooms are equipped with certain DSTV channels. Secure parking will ensure that your stay is worry free.

After a busy day guests can take a leisurely stroll through our lovely garden or enjoy a refreshing swim in our sparkling pool and relax in our entertainment area.

Give us a chance to make your stopover, business trip, Eastern Free State getaway or bikers trip a memorable one.

Our stay was very pleasant and comfortable.The hosts were very friendly and really made us feel welcome.Our vehicles were also secured for the night and given that they were loaded for our trip to Lesotho this was very important. We would use this establishment again - for sure.
