About Acorn Guest House

Warm, welcoming and capturing a bygone era with flair, Colin and Esther offer true South African hospitality in the heart of George and the Garden Route. A great service that we provide is free 24 hour wired or wireless internet access. Come play golf and enjoy our delicious breakfast in the crisp morning sun at our pool area.

Acorn Guest House is a 4 star establishment, within walking distance to excellent restaurants. The rooms are decorated with flair and style, each with its own TV with the basic channels, complimentary sherry and fresh flowers. Parking is secure behind a wall. Different rooms are available, inclusive of breakfast and all taxes.

          Very good as always, although room 3 not as practical as room 1. Will request room 1 in future!

          Very comfortable, well equipped, clean, excellent catering, but had a problem the first night with excessive noise from the main building, but the contact (Colin) was out of town and the other contact (Esther) did not answer her phone.

However, I did not appreciate Acorn ignoring us like they did, especially after...

          We stayed one night only. But we wish we had stayed there longer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It’s a beautiful house, and they were very warm and welcoming. Better service than most 5 star hotels. Will definitely recommend to people.
