“Lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

I loved my overnight stay. The staff were amazing. Very friendly and efficient. They assisted me with a very short notice booking. The rooms were clean and comfortable. It's well situated and close to some really nice restaurants. I will definitely be staying there again.

We traveled to George in January 2014 on a business trip and what a friendly, clean, warm place to stay at Acorn Guest House. We arrived a little late so the guesthouse was closed already but with one telephone call they assisted us on a very friendly manner and really gave us quality for our money. The rooms is modern and very clean, every thing that you need and more is in the rooms, they also welcome you with Sherry or Port i think (not a drinker) in the rooms and this gave a warm feeling to the stay. The location of the guesthouse is nice and central and walking distance from the shops and restaurants. The staff at Acorn Guesthouse is soooooo friendly and really goes out of their way to make your stay not just at Acorn Guesthouse very pleasant but to enjoy the whole Garden route scenery. Thanks for a wonderful time at your lovely place we sure would be back at Acorn on our next trip to George.Thanks for your love and friendliness towards us as guest.

Stayed two nights whilst golfing in the George area. Acorn Guest House was a very convenient location for the golf and for visiting the beautiful area around George. The staff were incredibly pleasant, helpful & knowledgeable about the area.

I was very impressed with Acorn as we only got to George 3 hours after the time we were supposed to and the Guest house was phoning us all the time to see that we were safe. Loved that there was fee WIFI and even though we didn't spent too much time at the guest house itself, it was welcoming and warm and the kids loved it too. We will definitely be back.
