About Bonne Esperance Guest Lodge
Bonne Esperance is a charming Victorian Villa with wrap-around veranda, cast iron mouldings and corner-turret. The villa was originally built in 1901. The house retained the same charm and ambience of that era but with the added luxuries of the modern age.
Our 15 comfortable en-suite Guest Rooms are lovingly decorated and include air-conditioning, LCD television with DSTV, hospitality tray, mini-bar fridge, wireless internet access, hairdryer and safe.
Enjoy breakfast au Provence in our butter-yellow breakfast room or outside on the veranda overlooking the garden. After a day of exploring come and relax next to the pool in the enclosed courtyard garden or in winter next to the fire in the guest lounge.
