Queenstown nestles at the foot of the Hangklip Mountain in an area known for its breathtaking scenery. The area around Queenstown has a number of game farms and nature reserves and the Bongola Dam offers a wide variety of water sports.
Visitors keen on exploring the history of this fascinating little town should make a stop at the Queenstown and Frontier Museum, which documents the town's military past. The Queenstown Art Gallery and Walter Everitt Sunken Garden are also worth a visit.

Arrived in Queenstown, Eastern Cape
O.M.G. Civilization at last !! We were expecting the usual rural dilapidated Eastern Cape town and found this little gem in the middle of nowhere.
Queenstown is exceptionally clean and tidy compared to the majority of outlying Eastern Cape towns. The "modern" suburbs look like they could be situated in any proud country town of South Africa. Besides an array of Bed and breakfast and self catering accommodation, Queenstown even has a Casino!! The Queenstown industrial area looks pretty modern and Queenstown accommodation opportunities are plentiful for any reps looking for business accommodation on their Eastern Cape trip stop-over.
All the usual food and services franchises line the main road of Queenstown. As a holiday stop-over it is only 2 or 3 hours from East London which is probably a little too close to stay in a Queenstown bed and breakfast seeking a break in a long trip.
But anyway, well done Queenstown for preserving a nice town.
From Queenstown to Hogsback......can't wait

Review for the Eastern Cape's Queenstown Bed & Breakfast Accommodation
Through Where to Stay we found a delightful Queenstown bed & breakfast on the outskirts of town. Tranquil House certainly lives up to its reputation of 'gracious living'.
Our thanks to Corne' and Kevin for your warm hospitality, and mouth watering meals!
For those looking for more 'out of town' Eastern Cape accommodation, see the Queenstown accommodation page - it also offers several Queenstown guest farms, and a private game reserve.
