Accommodation & Facilities

Right in the heart of George on elegant Caledon street, we want to welcome you to “Die Waenhuis” with the beautiful words of Keats:

The splendid chambers ready with their pride
are glowing to receive a thousand guests
In blanched linen smooth and lavendered
For o’er the southern shores
I have a home for thee.

Our aim is to complement the authentic charm of this old house with authentic hospitality

The establishment consists of the main house with 7 rooms, all en suite. Three open onto verandas, a loft room with a balcony and 3 rooms inside the house. Then there is the annex, around the swimming pool with 4 rooms opening onto verandas. The conference room is also in this section.

All rooms are luxuriously and individually decorated with antique and vintage pieces combined in an eclectic style with modern conveniences.

Each room is suitably equipped  with either air conditioning (3 rooms) or fans and heaters or underfloor heating, electric blankets,  and one room has a fireplace. All rooms have bar fridges and safes. The linen is 100% cotton percale and white luxury 100% cotton towels are supplied.

Other amenities are:

  • Satellite TV (Hotel bouquet)
  • Free WiFi (fibre optic)
  • Tea/Coffee facilities
  • Hairdryers
  • Working desk with lamp

All rooms are en suite with showers and 7 rooms have bathtubs as well.

The lounge

The lounge with plenty of space to relax or play a game has a Victorian fireplace for cool evenings, an honesty bar and some interesting books.

The Garden

The extensive garden is a great asset. There is an 8m swimming pool with a covered deck and deck chairs, huge trees on the edges, interesting flower beds with lots of indigenous and other old favourite species creating a tranquil haven to relax. The covered verandah is a pleasant spot for breakfast in summer or sundowners.

Breakfast

Breakfast is a feast, served in front of the old Dover stove in winter, and sometimes on the veranda if preferred. We love to treat our guests with special coffee, home baked bread and croissants, homemade preserves, platters of a selection of cold meats and cheeses, etc. and a hot breakfast cooked to order.
