About the Kestell Hotel

The Kestell Hotel is over 100 years old.  It is a quirky old fashioned country hotel comprising a pub, dining room, outdoor dining & braai areas and twelve bedrooms.  The hotel is pet friendly (animals must be house trained and sociable).  There is a limited number of smoking rooms available.  Rooms are serviced daily and have coffee making facilities and free WiFi.  We have darts, pool table and board games available but no TVs, other than the one in the pub.  There is safe parking at the back of the hotel.

The hotel is ideal for business people travelling or working in Bethlehem, Harrismith, Reitz and Phuthaditjhaba / QwaQwa (each about 30 minutes drive)

The hotel is a great weekend get-away for smaller groups of people who want a stay tailored to their requirements: hiking, motor-biking, photographers, Geocaching, bird watching, fishing or cycling.  Nearby tourist attractions include Clarens, the Golden Gate National Park, the Drakensberg Sentinel Peak, Lion’s Rock, Groenkop Battlefield & Sterkfontein Dam.  There is a golf course nearby.

Our themed weekends are popular – Christmas in Winter, Murder Mystery Dinners and Ghost Story Evenings.  Choose your own weekend for groups 16 minimum to 24 maximum.
