Acorn Guest House is situated in a beautiful and leafy part of town, just off the main street. It oozes character and warmth and the rooms are beautiful. Breakfast is delicious and the friendliness of the staff makes staying at Acorn an absolute pleasure.

I visited the Acorn guest house last week and was pleasantly suprised. The rooms are large and comfortable. My room had a large spa bath but unfortunatly it wasnt working.. The breakfast was good, big and varied. The guest house is situated centrally in town and has easy access

We were just looking for a nice B&B for a one night stop over before driving to Plettenberg. Loved this place. The rooms are very unique and the lady who runs the place is super friendly. She suggested some great places for dinner and changed our room as soon as she saw that we had some big pieces of luggage... More
