We found this place on the way back from Garden Route, it was already night, my friends and I were tired, so we decided to stop in the next city and find some backpackers to rest. We called some others hostels but it was fully booked then fortunately we found this guest house, we knocked on door and a friendly... More

I was fortunate enough to discover this lovely guesthouse some years ago and have been staying there ever since on frequent trips from Cape Town to Natures Valley. It is an elegant old Victorian mansion with the most extensive and beautiful garden. It is so peaceful and relaxing to sit and have a drink under the trees after a day... More

From outside beautiful house, BUT rooms are old and dirty, bathrooms more than old and non-functional and very dirty. First level rooms do not have air condition and they DO NOT cool down during the night as promised by owners. Roomtemperature was baking hot, we could not sleep one minute. It is a sleeping beauty and to wake it up... More

We have been staying at Sleeping Beauty Guest House for many years, both on business and leisure trips on our way to and back from the Garden Route. We always make a point of spending time here to enjoy the homely atmosphere, beautiful gardens and scenery. Monica and Jinja are fantastic hosts and Monica's breakfasts are a good start to... More

Over the last 10 years we have been regular visitors at this lovely old Victorian guest house as we have travelled from Durban to Cape Town or return. Monica and Jinje are no longer wonderful hosts but close friends. Perfect for an overnight stay or an ideal base to explore the surrounding area - Highly recommended.

We stayed at this old parsonage for just one night in March but were highly imoressed with our choice. There is a lot of history in the building and the gardens are lovely. The rooms are big and airy, the beds comfy and the breakfast gives a good start to the day. A great place to stay.

Tranquil accomodation with a huge rear garden where we were served afternoon tea on arrival by the convivial hosts Monica and Jinger The house is steeped in history with large spacious rooms with high ceilings.

Charming old rectory in a quiet part of town. Lovely gardens with great views of the Sleeping Beauty Mountain, and an intriguing labyrinth. Caring and attentive owner/hosts ensure a very comfortable and relaxed stay. Newly completed self-catering wing will suit families and backpackers. At just over 3 hours drive from Cape Town this is a very attractive and convenient stopover... More

After a long drive this was a wonderful dinner bed and breakfast experience for us. We had an enormous room overlooking a beautiful garden which stretches back a long way with adjacent gardens housing horses. The rooms are comfortable and have everything you will need, it is an old house which is charming and it has a slightly old fashioned... More

We wanted to break up our trip travelling up the garden route from Cape Town to Plettenberg bay and needed a half way stop over. Perfect find! Sleeping beauty offered exactly what we were looking for - comfortable accomodation in beautiful tranquil surroundings and warm friendly service. The rooms were larger than average and beds very comfortable. Had a hearty... More
