About Us

Your hosts, Alex and Rene Dumas, will offer you a warm welcome at Colesview Guest House, where the comfort and satisfaction of their guests is their top priority.The guest house is situated in the town of Colesberg, an oasis in the Karoo, halfway to everywhere.

Conveniently located in the upper part of town, we are just one kilometre off the N1 highway in a quiet, secluded, residential area, conducive to a good night’s rest.

Recently refurbished, this elegant guesthouse offers a stunning view of Coleskop Mountain, visible from 40 km away. When the sun slips below the horizon, brushing the sky with brilliant hues, Coleskop’s former name, Towerberg (meaning Magic Mountain) seems more appropriate.

Our “rooms with a view” can accommodate 25 people in 8 stylishly decorated bedrooms. The rooms all have separate entrances and sleep from 2 to 6 people, all with bathroom en-suite (either with bath, shower or both). The rooms are all equipped with double or twin beds, boasting comfortable mattresses, crisp linen, ceiling fans, air-conditioners, heaters, DSTV, electric blankets in winter, wall-safes, fridges, microwaves, toasters, basic cutlery and crockery, and tea and coffee-making facilities. Cots, hairdryers and extra mattresses are all available on request.


There is a TV lounge to relax in after a hard day's travelling and free WiFi. There is also a sparkling pool to cool off in and a barbecue area where you can braai, lounge in the sun and get into the holiday spirit! We have secure, undercover, lock-up parking available (one garage per room) as well as sufficient fridge and freezer space for your perishable items.

We offer a Continental-style breakfast in the morning, comprising a selection of cereals, fruit juice, yogurt, fruit, muffin, cheese, toast and spreads - all of which can be enjoyed in the comfort of your room, seated at one of our outdoor tables or taken on the road as 'padkos'.  

Colesberg offers a selection of restaurants, all close to Colesview, if you fancy a night out on the town! We have all the menus in the guest house and we will point you in the right direction
