  • Description
  • Facilities
Van Zijl Guesthouses is an ideal stopover for tourists travelling north or south and should be visited throughout the year and not just during flower season. These six guest houses are beautifully restored traditional sandstone buildings, typical of the architecture and stone masonry of Nieuwoudtville.

All guest houses are fully equipped for self-catering, although it is highly recommended that you indulge in the country cuisine served at Smidswinkel Restuarant. The restaurant is within walking distance of all the guest houses, so you are not inconvenienced by long drives for an excellent meal, local wine and good company. The restaurant and information centre is situated in a large sandstone building which, many years ago, was occupied by the last blacksmith in Nieuwoudtville. It offers traditional farm-style meals, and for the adventurous we will even prepare baked "skilpadjies" (liver) or a traditional sheep head.

Guests are invited to enjoy a traditional, yet exciting holiday with everything needed for true relaxation.

6 Reviews on Van Zijl Guesthouses

Comfortable enough. Big concern was the kitchen sink did not drain & so had to do the washing up at the garden tap. The problem was reported & we were provided with the hand suction stick to sort it out ourselves which we could not do.


08 September 2014

We were told that we would have to climb steps to get to our accommodation. However, the steps were incredibly steep and far apart - we had to climb into the attic/loft. No one assisted us with our luggage. No problem once we were up there. We did not eat at the restaurant as we are non-smokers and smoking had apparently been allowed in it. Nevertheless, Niewoudtville is a beautiful place to visit.

We stayed at Waenhuis during the flower season. It is situated at the entrance to the caravan/camping site, a few blocks away from the reception office. There is no TV (in our opinion unnecessary anyway)and the unit was well equipped, comfortable, cosy and warm, in spite of the cold weather. Food at the Smidswinkel Restaurant was generous, hearty and reasonably priced. Definitely recommended.


02 September 2013

The guesthouse was beautifully furnished but the reception by the owner was far from friendly.


27 August 2013

Have already sent in letter to complain there was no hot water geyser not turned on so we could not take a shower. Very poor management. Also fridge didn't have freezer compartment so couldn't keep our meat frozen. No TV. Wouldn't go there again.
