We stayed one night there and we want to go there again. Very good breakfast and a very friendly staff!!! The breakfast buffet includes bread, muesli, fruitsalad, meats and sausage and eggs. Its a safe place and its near by some good restaurants.

We were just looking for a nice B&B for a one night stop over before driving to Plettenberg. Loved this place. The rooms are very unique and the lady who runs the place is super friendly. She suggested some great places for dinner and changed our room as soon as she saw that we had some big pieces of luggage...

Enjoy the stay as room was great and breakfast was really great. Just struggled to sleep as the church opposite the road has bells ringing every 15 minutes with big bang on each hour. Real bummer as otherwise the stay is good.

Clean, comfortable and friendly. Great use of space in this conveniently situated guest house. Spacious rooms next to the swimming pool and little extras and care like plasters, headache tablets and heated towel rails make this guest house extra special. Self catering hidden away kitchenette is convenient and helpful for travelers wishing to warm up some takeaways or leftovers from...

Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms with nice views over looking the Outeniqua Mountains. The breakfast is good and the staff very friendly. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in George! We were there to play golf and for that purpose it is perfectly located.

We stayed here for 2 nights enroute from Tsitsikamma to Oudtshorn. To be honest there was not much to do in George itself but we spent a day seeing Mossel Bay which we would not have seen on the Garden Route as we were going inland. The Acorn is a hidden gem which opens up at the back into a...

The Acorn Guest House B&B suited my stay in George perfectly. My room was very comfortable and the staff looked after my needs without hesitation. Receptionist Pippy organised airport transfers, places to eat and even cooked breakfast. I would certainly stay there again if I was in the George area.

The Acorn Guest House was an amazing experience. Pip was mast welcoming and our stay was perfect. There is nothing we can think of that could be improved. The rooms we had were extremely comfortable and every need had been thought of. It is like a home away from the home.
