About Gilbert House B&B

Gilbert House B&B is situated in the upmarket part of Volksrust, offering comfortable accommodation in Mpumalanga. The historical nature and the unique location make for a relaxed atmosphere.

We offer three beautiful bedrooms opening up onto a landscaped garden with pathways leading to the parking areas. There is a lovely dining area for all meals and a central living area for socialising. Our heated indoor swimming pool is ideal even for the winter months. We have a lovely art gallery for the more curious and artistic guests, as well as historic books and newspapers available.

Volksrust is a quaint South African town with plenty of historical and cultural sights. Situated close to many famous battle sites, Volksrust became a municipality in 1904 and is currently the commercial centre of an area where maize, wool, sorghum, sunflower seed, beef and dairy are all farmed and produced.

a beautifull house and a charming host.Our room was gorgious. Magda made us feel at home. We were told the whole house was at our disposal. We just admired the art works ! Excellent breakfast. And the covered swimming pool was a delight.

We decided to stay over in Volksrust rather than Wakkerstroom - what a good choice it turned out to be. The accommodation was such a treat - a friendly hostess who truly goes the extra mile to make her guests welcome. Taking a longer route to Durban was truly worth our while and the countryside surrounding the areas is truly beautiful.Olivia & Coen Truter

This is the second time We stayed at Gilbert House and again it was outstanding. The welcoming reception by Magda was very friendly. The room is big and clean. There are no traffic to disturb our sleep. The Breakfast was 5 Star. Seriously a place to recommend.
