Reviews for Gewel Gastehuis
Friendly and very comfortable. Happy to accommodate me and my dogs
It's well dressed easily styled and at the back the pool suits the view of the garden which consists of a shelter of few sits and a braai place. Its a nice place to chill and sleep over
Gewel Guesthouse is a place where you can relax and unwind. The tranquility of the surroundings gives you a peace of mind to enjoy nature. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous and decorated stylishly. They welcomed me professionally, friendly and made me feel welcome. You definitely deserve 5 stars. Thanks guys. Will definitely recommend this Guesthouse!!!
I had a wonderful stay at this guesthouse. The host is really friendly and is really involved. Breakfast was really good. One of the best stays I had this vacation. Would recommend this for everyone!
We arrived in Ficksburg and found this accommodation. The owners were very welcoming and made us feel at home. It was a cold night but with the electric blanket and thick duvet we had our best nights sleep. The following morning we had a very generous breakfast. The hosts were also very generous sharing local knowledge with us regarding route planning into Lesotho and also down to Port Elizabeth. As we were leaving they gave us their contact number just incase we had any problems in Lesotho then they would tap into their contacts in Lesotho to help us out if needed. Fortunately we did not have to use this resource:-). I would highly recommend this accommodation for anyone who is traveling through Ficksburg.

What a wonderful place to stay, dankie vir jul gasvreiheid en friendskap.
Our stay at Gewel Gastehuis was a great experience. The old world charm of the house with its spacious rooms was great. But what really warmed our hearts in the cold Ficksburg winter was the warmth and charm of our hospita, Non, for whom nothing is too much trouble. The feeling that she and her husband really care about their guests, puts Gewel Gastehuis on our must visit again list.
