Recently refurbished, this elegant guesthouse offers a stunning view of Coleskop Mountain, visible from 40 km away. When the sun slips below the horizon, brushing the sky with brilliant hues, Coleskop's former name, Towerberg meaning Magic Mountain) seems more appropriate.

Braai packs are available on request. We have secure, undercover, lock-up parking available as well as sufficient fridge and freezer space for your perishable items.

We offer an "English-style" breakfast in the morning, comprising a selection of cereals, fruit juice, bacon, sausage, eggs, tomato, yoghurt, toast and spreads and that essential bottomless cup of tea and coffee to kickstart you on your way. Breakfast is available from 6:30a.m. if you need to make an early start.

Colesberg offers a selection of restaurants, all close to Colesview, if you fancy a night out on the town! In fact there are 5 restaurants within 5 minutes of the guest house. If you are reluctant to move your vehicle and unhitch your trailer once you are settled into the guesthouse, your hosts will gladly drop you off and collect you from the restaurant of your choice. We also have an 'honesty bar'.

Colesberg has retained much of the charm of an early Karoo town and for such a small place has a remarkable number of national monuments. It was also the scene of considerable fighting during the Anglo-Boer War. For those interested and with a little time to spare, we can organise guided tours of the Colesberg/Kemper Museum, of the town or of the Anglo-Boer sites.
