About Van Zylsvlei

Van Zylsvlei B and B is situated 6 km north of Colesberg on the right-hand side of the N1 highway. It is a small farm with very safe overnight accommodation and plenty of open spaces where the kids can enjoy themselves without the concern of parents. The bed and breakfast is located just outside town, where no traffic will spoil the quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

You can enjoy staying in a Thatched Rondawel or Family Room, which all have en-suite bathrooms. We have also six powered caravan stands and lots of space if you would like to overnight in a tent. We serve breakfast as well as dinner in our lovely dining room and our lamb dishes is worth a try. During winter our cozy fireplace is lit in the spacious lounge area. You can have a drink or relax in our popular bar or take a swim after a long drive.

If you are interested in hunting, we are ideally situated for your perfect stay, where you can participate in hunting activities just opposite the road. At Van Zylsvlei you will be greeted with warm and friendly Karoo hospitality and will enjoy a peaceful and quiet overnight stay. Your friendly hosts Deon and Annalie Döhne look forward to welcoming you. Breakfast is now R60.

                                      Ons het baie laat by akkommodasie aangekom met karavaan. Die ontvangs het sommer rondawel beskikbaar gestel sodat ons nie nog moes omry na karavaanpark. Heerlike ontbyt!

                                      Perfect stopover between Joburg and Cape Town. Warm welcome from Annalie, the dogs and the little lamb. Rooms were neat and clean and the swimming pool most refreshing after a long hot drive.

                                      We have stayed at Van Zylsvlei on our trip to Johannesburg and back for the past 8 or 9 years.  After a long hot road trip it is always so refreshing to stop at Van Zylsvlei and be met with a warm welcome by Annalie.  We would recommend Van Zylsvlei to anyone wanting a secure pleasant overnight stay in Colesberg.

                                      We arrived at Van Zylsvlei on a cold winter's night and were met with a warm plate of food, a cozy room with a heater and hot water for a bath. We were traveling with our 4 month old son and the owner was more than happy to get his bottles washed and sterilised for us and on the whole this was a wonderful stay. It was fairly basic but had everything you could need for an overnight stay. I would stay here again.
