Vyfster accommodation is housed in Britstown's Old Jail which was built during the late 1890's. It is believed the facility was used to house some of prisoners during the Anglo-Boer war. Engraved names and pictures can be seen carved into the granite stone blocks. During the renovation process, which took place between 2017 and 2018, as much as possible of the original fittings were kept without detracting from a comfortable stay.

One of the old jail cells has been tastefully refurbished and decorated to offer guests comfortable accommodation. The unit is furnished with a queen-size bed and features an open-plan bath and shower.
A fireplace and guest lounge is located within the building and secure parking is offered for guests.

What a beautiful guest house, the room was really lovely and I felt incredibly spoilt! The place is beautifully renovated and I received a warm welcome and Talitha and her staff went out of their way to accommodate my requests.
Their coffee shop in town is also well worth the visit with really great coffee :)
Would love to come back with my husband.

I always enjoy staying at the old jail and the accommodation is as expected. Check in was easy with friendly staff. The only not so nice thing is that the gas geyser for the hot water cuts out from time to time but I was warned. The kitchen is very convenient for preparing meals.

A fantastic place to stay with historical significance. The decor is kept in the style of the old jail and very industrial. Attention to detail is good and small touches give it that extra historic feel. The kitchen is basic, but good and the courtyard is a great place to sit, talk, eat and braai.
