                          The hotel is in a quite area and is ideal for stopover to Dralensnerg or Dirban or Bethlehem and beyond.

                          We did not stay at Kestell Hotel. It was disgusting. The photo tells a whole other story. First of all, there was only a shower in the room. One has to go outside the room to the toilet. I tried to call, but your offices were closed already. I found 1000x better accommodation in Betlehem for a R100 more.I will also never book through Safari.com again.I am going to try and get a refund as well.Elsa Kotze

                          Old hotel steeped in history. Comfortable accommodation and home cooked dinner was most enjoyable
