!Your Home away from home!

Old-fashioned, warm, friendly hospitality!

Welcome to the Great Florida Hills Bed & Breakfast Guest House !!

 Guest House

Travel adds extra stress to the already demanding working day!

And to make it worse, come evening, there's nowhere to call home. Luxury hotels present an impressive face - doormen at attention, reception staff in starched uniforms, soaring lobbies, indoor gardens.

But it's hard to feel at home in an environment shared with busloads of tourists or in an air-conditioned, beige and cream suite with all the warmth of a hospital room. The modern business traveller needs an environment which emphasises comfort rather than the brand identity of an international hotel chain, a place to feel like a guest - not a battery hen.

The Great Florida Hills Bed and Breakfast is the answer to the prayer of the new millennium traveller: a place where small is beautiful and where creature comforts mean more than grand design.

The establishment is located in a quiet suburb overlooking the beautiful rugged koppies (hills) of the Florida Hills area and has a wonderful relaxed homely atmosphere and the feeling of being far away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

You will be welcomed, not by an uniformed employee, but by the owner, Marietjie. In the simple, smokefree rooms the emphasis is on quality: all have en-suite bathrooms and create an inviting environment.

A comfortable lounge and private pub create the quiet atmosphere of a lodge where you can pass the time talking to other travellers with whom you have something in common, or you can soak up the sun at the swimming pool area.

Try the Great Florida Hills Bed and Breakfast !

It may just be the smartest decision you make today!
