About Horse and Mill Guest House

All roads lead through Colesberg, as it is located in the centre of South Africa. Enjoy true Karoo hospitality in this charming town where The Horse and Mill is the perfect haven for weary, hungry, and thirsty travellers.

The guest house is situated in the centre of Colesberg, in a quite one-way street which runs parallel to the main road. The adjacent English-style Horse and Mill Pub and Restaurant is a beautifully restored coach house, built in 1840. The horse mill was erected on the Sewefontein farm in 1891 and was renovated and installed into the old coach house in 1977. Both the mill and the building which houses it have been declared National Monuments. Here you can quench your thirst with pint draft and feast on a wide variety of dishes in our restaurant. Karoo lamb dishes are our speciality, and English breakfasts can be served on request at R55.00 per person

We offer eight en-suite rooms, each with ceiling fan, selected DStv, bar fridge, heater, electric blankets, and tea and coffee facilities. The guest house offers secure parking, debit and credit card facilities, and some rooms are also pet friendly.

When next your journey takes you through Colesberg, saddle off at the Horse and Mill. We're the perfect stop over between Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Johannesburg, and Durban.

As a stop over for a trip between Joburg and Cape Town it was acceptable. Locked parking for vehicles provided.We used the budget room for 6 hours sleep. I would not recommend it for a longer stay.The booking process was handled efficiently.

Clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Convenient having the restaurant/bar so close. Food outstanding and service excellent. Pity though that smoking is allowed in the bar, which could otherwise be a pleasant spot  to have a quiet drink and watch TV after a long day's driving.
