About Colesberg Coniston House

Under New Management Coniston House provides overnight accommodation in an elegant, historic, Cape Georgian homestead situated halfway between Cape Town and Johannesburg. The house was built in 1835 by Thomas Plewman - an 1820 settler - and has remained in the family to this day. It is one of the very few genuine Cape Georgian double-storey houses in the country. Furnished with antiques and family heirlooms, the establishment exudes a charm not commonly found elsewhere.The rooms available include four comfortable Family Suites; two are located in the main house and the other two are in the coach house. Each Family Suite is furnished and includes twin and double beds serviced by an en-suite bathroom. There are also two Garden Cottages available for couples. They feature double beds and en-suite bathrooms. Guests can rest in peace knowing that their vehicles are safely secured within the gated premises.The town of Colesberg is a quiet one and proudly boats an interesting history in a quaint Karoo setting. Guests can enjoy nature walks, visits of the ostrich farms and museum tours.

Staying over at Coniston House reminded me what proper Karoo care is all about - thanks for communicating, informing and making sure that all was 100% while staying over at Coniston!

Booking in time is 2.00pm when we arrived at 2.00pm the place was looked and the Owner was unavailable, we tried to call and he did not answer his phone after mire than half an hour we left His staff were not at all helpful. He then refused to refund us. I believe the Owner is unprofessional.

In spite of booking months in advance and paying the full amount, we were notified 4 days before our stay that they had double bookings and we had to stay at another guest house in town. And they blamed it on loadshedding?? Bad management, I would say!

Without a doubt the worst stopover ever in Colesburg

Coniston House is a lovely BnB with an old English feel to it. Within walking distance of many different restaurants, it is nicely situated away from all the loud bustle of the town. We were warmly welcomed and our room was very neat. The beds were adequately comfortable. There is a small garden area for guests to sit in, which is very peaceful and beautiful. Breakfast was very nicely presented, although I would have preferred more vegetarian/vegan options for the warm breakfast. Other than that, I would definitely return to Coniston House!
