About Bethesda Tower

Unique accommodation experienced in an enchanting tower at a vibrant arts centre in the Karoo village of Nieu Bethesda. The Bethesda Arts Centre Tower is located two minutes' walk from the fascinating Owl House, surrounded by stunning mountains, under an amazing array of stars. See the artists at work making huge colourful wall hangings and lino-prints, or catch a performance at the outdoor theatre while enjoying a Karoo-style meal at our great restaurant.

The Tower is a fairytale building three stories high.  On the top floor is a huge round bed, covered with a 'love quilt' made at the project.  The middle room has twin beds, so Bethesda Tower is ideal for a couple wanting a romantic night, or an adventurous family wanting a completely unique experience.  There are wonderful views of the surrounding hills from the Tower balcony, and at night you can sit and sip your wine under the stars in the round stone courtyard, in privacy and complete safety. 

Delicious meals are served in the Arts Centre's restaurant-gallery, where you can browse the exquisite bags, cushion covers, wall hangings, and prints made at the centre, or chat to the artists while you wait for a fine meal prepared from local produce in the Tower kitchen.

The Priory is named after the Priory in England where its stunning 1820 stained-glass windows came from. It sleeps a maximum of seven people, with the beds covered in quilts and the walls covered with artwork both made at the centre.  A beautiful stone courtyard with its own barbecue area offers privacy in a charming outdoor setting. Here you can gaze at the famous Bethesda night sky while you sip your wine.

Nights spent in the centre's friendly and quirky accommodation will not only give you the chance to meet the local artists, but to know that you are supporting a worthwhile project that is changing people's lives.

                  We had a lovely stay at Bethesda Tower. Great breakfast and great value for money!

                  Beautiful place in a stunningly beautiful town. Stayed over for one night in the top room. The delicious lamb for supper and the breakfast alone will make you come back. The staff (and inhabitants) are very friendly and helpful. But beware, one night is not enough to take in all that the town has to offer.

                  Mom and Dad slept upstairs and three boys slept downstairs. We were extremely comfortable, and the room was warmed up for us when we arrived. Probably the warmest place we've slept in winter! The breakfast was extraordinarily good!

                  The warm and friendly welcome we received was very nice. All our request were met. We are coming again for Christmas in July. Just need a place with en suite.
