Welgelegen Guest House


The Welgelegen Guest House known to be one of the most stylishly designed and elegant Victorian-era guesthouse located in the high-end neighborhood of world famous Gardens. The guesthouse comprises of the two regal Victorian Houses, which have been renovated by experts hired by the owners. Each of these villas has been individually decorated using extremely pretty and colorful fabrics of different textures. It is a place where one can relax after a day filled with safari adventures. Curl up right next to the warm burning fire and sip from a glass of port while reading a book on chilly winter’s nights or, during the summer, simply kick back in the sun warmed, perfumed courtyard right beside the cold plunge pool. Guests can also treat themselves to a marginal therapy, massage or a beauty treatment and later on enjoy a tantalizing meal just around the corner on Kloof Street and Long Street, two eclectic streets sporting numerous restaurants, bars as well as cafés.
