This is our third year running that we stayed over at the Karoo Lighthouse on our return journey from the Cape after the December vacations. It is always a delight to arrive there - the rooms are spacious, clean and neat and the service is prompt, efficient and friendly. Their rates are also affordable and very good value for money. We will keep on supporting the Karoo Lighthouse. A big thanks to Hettie and her staff.

This was our second stay and again a pleasant experience. The reception was friendly and the attention to detail impressive. We have and will continue to recommend The Lighthouse to others.

Accommodation was a pleasant surprise after a long days driving. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival. The room was well equipped and we loved the large bath and very comfortable beds. I would certainly come back in the future.

What a lovely welcome I received. The rooms are superb and the gardens exceptional. Highly recommended and what lovely hosts. Also enjoyed the healthy breakfast delivered to the room. Thank you all, we shall be back.

The Lighthouse is 500m away from the main church of the town at 40 Church Street Colesberg.

Enter Colesberg from the north, and find us 500m after the first four way stop, on the left hand side of the road.
Look out for a large yellow and white building, clearly marked.

If you enter Colesberg from the south, we are about 1km away from the first four way stop.
You need to turn right at the big yellow church and you will find us on the right hand side of the road, about another 300m.
