sleeping in the tower is an experience. Nieu Bethesda is a small village where time stood still. the service at the tower is good, we had a nice breakfast! The art which is showed in the gallerie is worth seeing

We stayed in the tower itself. Very Cute accommodation with a round room and round bad with bathrooms 2 floors down. Waking up was very easy, as sun couldn't be blocked out by very decorative curtains (but why sleep on holidays :)), so we though we woke up in Mexico. Breakfast was traditional and good. Town itself is interesting, especially... More

Had dinner and breakfast there - was very traditional "boere"... More

For something entirely different ... The accommodation here includes two round bedrooms (with round beds) in a tower, and a shared bathroom which was clean and fine. Dinner and breakfast were inexpensive welcome inclusions and served in the non-profit community arts centre in which the accommodation is situated. Very close to the Owl House which is the draw card of... More

We found Nieu Bethesda not a very pleasant place. From what we saw, it is a community that are somewhat parasitical on the Owl House. Indifferent service.

My family booked this tower for the Easter weekend as who wouldn’t want to stay in a fairytale tower! The top room is especially fun – with a huge round bed and beautiful reed –lined turret ceiling (very romantic!) The middle room is a twin and there is a kitchen on the bottom floor where all the café food is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A unique accommodation experience in a fairy-tale tower at a vibrant Arts Centre in the Karoo village of Nieu-Bethesda. The Bethesda Arts Centre Tower is two minutes walk from the fascinating Owl House, surrounded by stunning mountains, under an amazing array of stars. See the artists at work making huge colourful wall hangings and lino-prints, or catch a performance at the outdoor theatre while enjoying a Karoo-style meal at our great restaurant. ... more   less
