An Insight Into The Fine Accommodation In George

By on November 28, 2012

Are you a passionate traveler and explorer?  I am quite an enthusiast of this great pastime and currently I am so in love with Africa.  If you haven’t explored the magnificent white sand beaches of the Western Cape you sure are missing out on the finer things in life.

My favourite holiday destination down in the Western Cape is George. Situated between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, this city is the administrative and commercial hub of Garden route. It also happens to be a very popular holiday and conference centre for many people. This de facto capital has an oceanic climate, summers are warm and winters are mild to chilly. Most of its rain falls in the winter and spring months.

Infrastructure of this city is quite sophisticated. With all the modern facilities like banks, business and shopping chains, transport systems, conference centres it still retains its small town atmosphere.  The two things I love most about this city is its sporting facilities and the superb accommodation amenities.

Accommodation in George
These three are on top of my list of places to stay in the fine city of George:

Acorn Guest House – located in the heart of George and the Garden route, this place offers an unforgettable Western Cape hospitality. The spacious and cosy rooms look awesome with crisp cotton linen and the rooms decorated with auction pieces from all over the world.  The staff is friendly and welcoming, arranging for your most comfortable stay is what they know best. This four star bed and breakfast also has free Wi-Fi, airport transfers and credit card facilities.

Tramonto Country Guesthouse – situated between George Airport and Fancourt, this guesthouse is surrounded by the awe inspiring Outeniqua Mountains. What I like most about this quite countryside place of stay is its proximity to the golf course, its affordability and luxury. Services are excellent, it’s a comfortable home away from your home with satellite TV, pool, tea and coffee facilities and a safe for the security of your personal belongings, not to mention the romance, elegance and beauty this place embodies.

Blue Whale Resort – providing luxurious self-catering chalets, this resort is strategically located on the seafront just 10km away from George city. This wonder is
is surrounded by native forests and as the name suggests, whales can be seen during winter months and dolphins throughout the year from the comfort of your porch. It quenches my appetite for fishing as it is one of the finest fishing spots in the city as well.

What I enjoy most about accommodation in George is its affordability, proximity to some of the finest top 10 golf courses in South Africa and the tranquillity of its surroundings.
