* The Tower:
The Tower is a fairy-tale building three stories high.

On the top floor is a huge round bed, covered with a "love quilt" made at the project.
The middle room has twin beds, so the Tower is ideal for a couple wanting a romantic night, or an adventurous family wanting a completely unique experience.

There are wonderful views of the surrounding hills from the Tower balcony, and at night you can sit and sip your wine under the stars in the round stone courtyard, in privacy and complete safety.

Delicious meals are served in the Arts Centre's restaurant/gallery, where you can browse the exquisite bags, cushion covers, wall-hangings and prints made at the Centre, or chat to the artists, while you wait for a fine meal prepared from local produce in the Tower kitchen.


* The Priory:
The Priory is named after the Priory in England where its stunning 1820 stained glass windows came from. It sleeps a maximum of seven people. Beds are covered with Arts Centre quilts, and the walls are covered with art-work made at the Centre. A beautiful stone courtyard with its own Braai offers privacy and charm in an outdoor setting. Here you can gaze at the famous Bethesda night sky while you sip your wine in safety and privacy. Nights spent in the Centre's friendly, quirky accommodation, will not only give you the chance to meet the local coloured artists, but to know that you are supporting a worthwhile project that is changing people's lives.
In Room Facilities:
Bedding, electricity, heaters, warm blankets, fans.

The Bethesda Tower is such a unique accommodation experience in a very unique little South African village. Gerald and his team were so welcoming and friendly. The rooms were lovely and clean, and the dinner served in the restaurant was scrumptious! Our 2 girls also loved the novel experience of sleeping in their own Rapunzel tower! If we pass through Nieu-Bethesda again we would not hesitate booking here again.

Was a unique experience. Thoroughly enjoyed Bethesda Tower. Beds were comfortable and rooms spotless. It’s not a luxury stay. But that’s not what we were looking for. The staff are amazing and was a great opportunity to connect with the local friendly people of Nieu Bethesda. Rooms are not en suite but was not a problem. We loved it !! And super cheap ... would love to go back !

We had a lovely night in the twin room in the Bethesda Tower, and felt very welcome with our little dog too. We didn’t realize before we arrived that the bathroom was only accessible by an outdoor staircase, so we wouldn’t recommend the Bethesda Tower to the elderly, but for us it was perfectly suitable.

Hilton and the staff were very welcoming and cooked a delicious dinner. We greatly enjoyed our time in Nieu Bethesda.

we arrived late afternoon after a long hot trip through the sweltering Great Karoo. It was great to walk into our cool and clean twin room. I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort - The Bethesda Towers runs a local arts and crafts charity programme and all funds from the establishment's rooms and restaurant are donated to the charity project which uplifts the local community of previously disadvantaged people – and I think its a very well run establishment considering its basically a NPO. Our breakfast the following morning was simple but enjoyable - especially the experience of sitting in the beautiful courtyard which is secluded from the street and populated by various bird species - two of which were attracted to our table to check out what was for breakfast.

The Bushman Heritage Museum is a world class museum in addition to perfect quality gifts of quilts, pictures, amazing pillow cases and bags. The Tower B and B is excellent accommodation and food in quiet surroundings with remarkable landscape. Descendants of the bushmen tell you their amazing myths. Unforgettable.
