The Old Watchmaker’s of Bethulie is exactly that – an company established in 1880 in the heart of this little Free State town. Time is very important in a country on the brink of war and the brothers that started this company knew exactly that.

The front half of the building was used as a retail outlet and served its many customers, while the back rooms where the actual building and repairs of its many time pieces took place.

The guesthouse has retained much of the original character of the building, including the beautiful wooden floors and especially the heavy, large doors with their old oversized keys. As guests, you really will feel as if you’ve been transported back in time, to a period in South African history that we can all stand to learn a little more about.


The guesthouse offers a lounge for guests to enjoy, equipped with a functioning fire place for those cold Bethulie winters, satellite TV and a mini-library with books and magazines.

The fully licensed, intimate dining area of the guesthouse is open to visitors and the general public alike. It serves delicious and affordable meals and confectionary daily.

And on warmer days, guests and public are welcomed to enjoy the outside dining room, with its quaint ‘tea garden’ feel.

We experienced a very heartfelt welcome from Wendy. Very comfortable accommodation and a tasty dinner followed by an equally tasty breakfast.

Sun-downers on the Bridge is a must. We enjoyed eating at the Ou Kar restaurant.
Lovely little town.
