About The Green Acorn Guest House

The Green Acorn Guest House is located in the town of Ficksburg, which lies nestled beneath the craggy Imperani Mountain at the heart of the Free State Highlands. The guest house beckons weary travellers with its ambiance of uniquely decorated guest rooms, filled with eclectic collections of found items combined with the comforts of the latest technology, such as DStv and air-conditioning, typical of the quality and standards associated with The Green Acorn Guest House.

The guest house lies at the gateway of Lesotho’s primary tourist destinations, including the Katse Dam and Oxbow Ski Resort. Lesotho is not the only attraction that this region offers the visitor - just to breathe the unpolluted mountain air makes a visit here worth-while.

The Green Acorn Guest House offers an incredible breakfast that is spoken about over the country. “The best in town”, they say!

Our friendly staff make sure that our guests’ stay becomes a memorable experience, leaving with a spring in their step and a song in their heart, to return time and time again to rejuvenate both body and mind.

                                                          We loved the decor, very original.

                                                          We stayed in the Sandstone Cottage at the Green Acorn on 4 October 2015. Comfortable bed, good facilities (although the water pressure is a bit low) and very enjoyable breakfast. I will gladly stay there again.

                                                          We stayed in the Garden Cottage.The room is pretty cramped but was suitable for myself, my wife and 21 month old toddler.The room is in serious need of some maintenance. Eg Ceiling fan cannot be turned off, Unbalanced fan, and no lamp shade. Geyser leaking outside of room.The hanging space is the cupboard is also very very limited.On arrival the DSTV was not working but was promptly solved by management.Geyser temperature was found to be inadequate. Temp differential is overrun by running a bath from the hot water tap only. Only one bath can be run from geyser. Management should increase...
