Very good as always, although room 3 not as practical as room 1. Will request room 1 in future!

Very comfortable, well equipped, clean, excellent catering, but had a problem the first night with excessive noise from the main building, but the contact (Colin) was out of town and the other contact (Esther) did not answer her phone. I had to resolve the problem myself. Evidently no staff stay on the premises at night. The next morning Felicity was very apologetic about the incident, as were the other staff members, but, I have yet to get any contact from either Colin or Esther. Surely there should be someone on site overnight to resolve any issues / problems, or at any rate within easy access to the property - and be available. What if a serious problem occurs - must guests take matters into their own hands; who would be held responsible for any damage etc. Other than this incident, I would go back as I was very impressed with Acorn.

On our way to the Guest House, weve phoned several times to arrange for a late check in, but all in vain. We rang Safari to explain our problem, and the Acorn return our call. The lady explained to us that we arent booked with them, but with 17 Wellington st. That was just not on!!!. We went to 17 Wellington st , to check in. All went well, and the new accommodation was really good. willie, the manager was really helpfull with a lot of info and advice of the area. I will defnitely make use of the facility again. However, I did not appreciate Acorn ignoring us like they did, especially after accepting our money
What a lovely experience!

We enjoyed our stay at Acorn Guest House very much. It is a small and cosy place. I felt like at home. I recommend to everyone!

Our stay at Acorn was fantastic, really enjoyed our stay in this much older/ almost historic house with it`s wooden floors and authentic furniture.
The service was flawless.

Colin, Esther and their team are just fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend the Acorn Guest House to anyone and everyone that wants a better than home from home experience.

We had a lovely stay at the Acorn Guest House. Amor was very kind and welcoming to us. The guest house itself is beautifully decorated, the rooms clean and warm. Thank you
Home away from home

One of the best stay overs away from home that we've experienced. The room and the whole atmosphere is wonderful and beautiful. What can I say more it was fantastic.
Excellent Hospitality

We really had a fantastic time in George and thanks to Esther we got to explore places we wouldn't have. She really went out of her way to make us feel at home and always ready to assist.We will surely recommend Acorn to friends visiting George. Close to all the action. We believe that the breakfast/lunch box Esther made for us when we left was very kind and unheared off. Many guest houses do not do that especially if you leave at 5 in the morning. Thank you

Acorn Guest House
Warm, welcoming and capturing a bygone era with flair, Colin and Esther offer true South African hospitality in the heart of George and the Garden Route. A great service that we provide is free 24 hour wired or wireless internet access. Come play golf and enjoy our delicious breakfast in the crisp morning sun at our pool area.

Acorn Guest House is a 4 star establishment, within walking distance to excellent restaurants. The rooms are decorated with flair and style, each with its own DStv decoder for satellite TV, complimentary sherry and fresh flowers. Parking is secure behind a wall. Different rooms are available, inclusive of breakfast and all taxes.

Our standard rooms are situated inside the house and all rooms have an en-suite bathroom, wall-panel heaters as well as electrical blankets in winter and coffee and tea making facilities.

These rooms are spacious, with king size beds (which can be converted to twins), self-catering facilities, air-conditioners, spa-baths and showers, heated bathroom floors and electrical towel rails.
