Van Zylsvlei B&B is situated 6 km north of Colesberg on the right hand side of the N1 highway. It is a small farm with very safe overnight accommodation and plenty of open spaces where the kids can enjoy themselves without the concern of parents. Van Zylsvlei B&B is located just outside of town, where no traffic will spoil the quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

You can enjoy staying in a thatched rondavel or family rooms, which all have en-suite bathrooms. Van Zylsvlei B&B also has 6 caravan stands with power points and lots of space if you would like to stay overnight in a tent. We serve breakfast as well as dinner in our lovely thatched dining room (the karoo lamb is a winner). Braai (barbecue) facilities are also available. During winter, our cosy fireplace is lit in the spacious lounge area. You can have a drink or relax in our popular bar or take a swim after a long drive.

Really appreciated the electric blankets on the beds and the heaters - it was really cold!!! Otherwise the service was excellent and the supper was delicious. Would certainly consider staying over again.

I am grateful for a pet-friendly, tranquil place on a farm!

The property is tidy and offers room to stretch one's legs, let the dog run and sports green grass to revive the travelweary senses and give relief from the dryness of the Karoo. One can sit outside and rest; there are also interesting items in the garden!
Reception was prompt and friendly, supper was tasty and professionally presented, yet personal and warmhearted.
I was comfortable in the rondawel, the bathroom is wellappointed and spacious. I felt safe, my car was conveniently parked in front of my room.

I will use this estabishment again.

Needing an overnight venue to break the long Johannesburg - Cape Town run, and having a four legged passenger - Van Zylsvlei was an excellent well priced option.
The room was clean, and well maintained. A pleasant simple meal was available for supper and a pleasant quiet evening was enjoyed.
Would definitely use them again.

This is a value for money, clean and convenient place to stop over.The fact that it is on a farm gives you the opportunity to stretch your legs. Would stay over again.

From Johannesburg:
Travelling on the way to Colesberg, 8km before you reach the town, you will see the Van Zylsvlei B&B turn-off to the right. Drive for 5km on this good gravel road until you reach the tar road. At the tar road there will be a T-junction then turn left onto the R717. Keep travelling straight on for 1.5km, and the bed & breakfast is situated of the left hand side. This is also a tar road.
