Description

Big Five Guest House is the perfect accommodation for business travellers and family looking for a getaway, as we are centrally situated close to the airport, restaurants and shops. We offer a freshly prepared full English breakfast every morning to get your day started and we also provide secure on-site parking for guests' peace of mind.

Accommodation comprises one Deluxe Room with a queen-size bed, an en-suite bathroom and a sleeper couch, and five Standard Rooms with a queen-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. All of the rooms are air-conditioned and feature built-in cupboards for extra closet space and a TV with DStv.

Mthatha was founded in 1879 and was originally the capital of the Transkei, homeland of the Xhosa during the Apartheid era. Transkei now forms part of the Eastern Cape and Mthatha is still the centre of the region. Mthatha lies in the heart of the Nelson Mandela Route, established to give structure to the area for visitors who want to explore his history.

The route starts in King Williams Town, where one can visit the grave of Steve Biko, leader of the Black Consciousness movement. The route then moves through Bisho along the N2 to Umtata and the Nelson Mandela Museum, opened 10 years to the day after he was released from prison. The museum is spread over three locations; Umtata, Qunu and Mveso.

We provide dinner and snack platters upon request. A bar serving liquor is also available to guests needs.

      We had a great stay at the B&B except for the shower drain that wasn't draining properly and the noise from the guest having breakfast in the kitchen while we were trying to get some sleep.
