Starry Nights guest house provided a comfortable overnight stop in the fantastic town of Nieu-Bethesda. It was spacious and well-equipped.We had a fantastic stopover, with a great dinner at the Waenhuis...but the highlight was breakfast at Auntie Evelyn's restaurant!

Spacious well equipped unit with no TV - thanks for that. The unit is well suited for two people as there is only one bathroom. I would have preferred undercover parking for my car. The stoep at the back was ideal to watch the stars. A pleasant stay will recommend it anyone

Beautiful place with the most helpful and friendly owner. Everything we needed were there. Warm and cosy and more than enough coffee and tea to last us a month. The best place to stay and explore the town. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. Thank you for the lovely time!
