Fantastic village
Wayne Harpur, South Africa - 10 January 2017
Starry Nights guest house provided a comfortable overnight stop in the fantastic town of Nieu-Bethesda. It was spacious and well-equipped.

We had a fantastic stopover, with a great dinner at the Waenhuis...but the highlight was breakfast at Auntie Evelyn's restaurant!

Very comfortable, clean and spacious. Bronwen was welcoming and helpful with advice on where to eat.
Enjoyable stay

Thanks to the Starry Nights folks for a providing us with comfortable, well-located, and affordable accommodation in the interesting town of Nieu Bethesda.
Stands to its name
Derick Smith, South Africa - 14 September 2016
Spacious well equipped unit with no TV - thanks for that. The unit is well suited for two people as there is only one bathroom. I would have preferred undercover parking for my car. The stoep at the back was ideal to watch the stars. A pleasant stay will recommend it anyone

Beautiful place with the most helpful and friendly owner. Everything we needed were there. Warm and cosy and more than enough coffee and tea to last us a month. The best place to stay and explore the town. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. Thank you for the lovely time!
We will be back
Trudie Vermaak, South Africa - 20 June 2016
We had a wonderful stay, the room provides everything you need and more. Feels like home away from home. We will definitely be back and can absolutely recommend it.
Best value for money ever !
Heather Specht, South Africa - 09 May 2016

What a great stay. Clean, comfortable and great value for money.  We could not use the great braai area because of the rain, but the fireplace burned all weekend :)  Situated on the outskirts of this small village, but within walking distance of all the main attractions.  Putting the number in my book for the future. 

Everything you need for a peaceful stay
Valerie Graham, South Africa - 25 April 2016
We very much enjoyed our 2 night stay at Starry nights in Nieu Bethesda.
We were warmly welcomed by Megan and our open-plan family-type room was large, well-equipped and had a lovely outlook from the back stoep onto a pretty garden and beyond, to the mountains. 
Particularly welcome was the ample supply of tea, coffee (including for a supplied plunger), milk, etc. - more than enough for a week's stay!

Great place!
Natasha Thiart, South Africa - 30 November 2015
We had a lovely stay! Neat, spacious, and had everything we needed. Great area in the back to braai and relax while enjoying the peace and quiet of the Karoo surroundings. Very close to shops and restaurants in the town. Will definitely stay here again. Great value for money.
Clean and Comfortable
Richard Higgins, South Africa - 13 October 2014
Our party of four had a most enjoyable overnight stay at Starry Nights. The rooms were clean and well prepared, the beds comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. Bronwen was most welcoming yet un-intrusive. We will definitely visit again and have no hesitation in recommending this Guest House. Richard and Ronnie Higgins, Hermanus.
Wonderful stay
Glyn Kelly, South Africa - 14 January 2014
Our accommodation at the Starry Nights Guest House was very comfortable and homely. We had a wonderful time exploring Nieu Bethesda and hope to add the village to future travels. Highly recommend the Starry Nights Guest House for its comfort and location to exploring the village. We would definitely consider the guesthouse for future visits.
Comfortable family accommodation in Nieu Bethesda
Jane Futter, South Africa - 30 June 2013
Our well equipped, large, open-plan family accommodation had everything we needed, and some special touches like milk for our morning tea and breakfast, and super-warm electric blankets. Our room was adorned with paintings done by our artist host. A lovely sunny garden to relax in too.
Two day get away
christy rennie, South Africa - 09 April 2013
Spacious, well-maintained: a lovely space to spend a quiet weekend. Scenic running routes, and waking up to a Nieu-Bethesda view is heartwarming.
Warm, friendly Karoo hospitality
Deon Lombard, South Africa - 23 March 2013
When we arrived the hordes were descending on Nieu Bethesda for a wedding. There was a lovely vibe in town at all the establishments. Starry Nights itself was very neat and our host put a little extra thought into our family needs. We could easily have stayed longer.
Very good
Roland Dirr, South Africa - 10 January 2013
The cottage was very clean, well equipped and spacious. The braai area is set in a well kept garden - the perfect spot to relax after exploring the Kamdeboo National Park in the Karoo heat. Bronwen is very knowledgeable of Nieu-Bethesda and most hospitable. Will certainly stay at Starry Nights when I visit Nieu-Bethesda again.
The best weekend away place to stay
