About Bishops Guest House

Bishops Guest House is an old-style colonial home, nestled in a beautiful well-maintained garden in in the northern Kwa-Zulu-Natal town of Vryheid.

Come and experience the warm welcome of real country-style hospitality, in ten luxurious en-suite bedrooms with a delicious breakfast included in the affordable rate. Here guests can relax in the privacy of their rooms or outside on the wraparound veranda that overlooks the huge gardens, swimming pool and braai area.

Surrounded by old trees, the guest house provides safe, secure parking facilities available in five lock-up garages.

The town of Vryheid derived its name from the Afrikaans word for freedom. It lies northeast of the town of Dundee in Zululand as well as the site of one of the more notorious battles along the Battlefields Route; the battle of Blood River.

Wedding Venues: We also cater for kitchen teas, small weddings, stork parties, birthday dinners as well as any other functions.

Conference Venues: This facility is fully air-conditioned and can seat up to 40 people.

                          Lisa, the host, was very friendly and welcoming. The bedroom was nice but in an unusual position as the bedroom windows looked out onto an internal corridor to the other bedrooms.

                          We stayed over at Bishops Guest House in July for 2 nights and were very pleased with the clean, attractive, well equipped self catering apartments.Lisa is a friendly, efficient hostess and made us feel welcome from the start.We will definitely stay no where else but there when again visiting Vryheid.
