“Joan Nell - Acorn Guest House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

I received a warm welcome which immediately made me feel very much at home. The accommodation (Room 6) was very homely, clean and neat. As for the staff and the food they served-EXCELLENT and so friendly and helpful! Thank you. I will definitely stay here should I come to George again. Recommend very strongly.

Very good except for gas geyser that doesn't work properly. It gets hot and then suddenly very cold again.The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom is also modern and clean.Overall I would definitely recommend the guest house to friends.Food excellent.

I was at the Acorn during August / September 2013. I had 5 star treatment and I really cannot thank the staff and owners enough for making my stay so homely. I even had a birthday and they spoilt me rotten. I really recommend the Acorn as they are accommodating and go out their way for a person. I love you all very much. Thank you!!!

The definite place to stay for business in George and surrounding areas. The rooms are of highest quality, clean and the location allows for easy excess to George in General. This has been about the 7th stay for business and I am very happy.
