Situated in a nature conservation area 12 km outside Barberton on the R38 Kaapmuiden road, the guesthouse offers quiet weekend getaways or for the more active, birding and admiring local plant species. Established in 1997, the guest house is on the site of the old Clutha Hotel, one of many hotels in Barberton which serviced the goldminers during the gold rush days. The remaining buildings were converted to a private home in the early 1930’s.
The guest house is ideally situated to explore the Kruger National Park, Swaziland and the southern Lowveld. Eight comfortable rooms with own entrance and en-suite facilities. Access for wheel chairs available. One double room on ground floor near parking area has wheelchair access with shower over bath combination with hand rails, but not a roll-in shower.
We offer accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis with dinner available on request. If you are arriving late afternoon, early evening, please note that Barberton does not have a big selection of eating places besides the usual take-away franchises. As we are 15km north of Barberton town centre, we would suggest that you book dinner. Please let us know when you make a reservation if you will require dinner and advise us of any special dietary requirements. We are licensed to sell alcohol and do not provide self catering facilities.
