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
