A unique accommodation experience in a fairy-tale tower at a vibrant Arts Centre in the Karoo village of Nieu-Bethesda. The Bethesda Arts Centre Tower is two minutes walk from the fascinating Owl House, surrounded by stunning mountains, under an amazing array of stars. See the artists at work making huge colourful wall hangings and lino-prints, or catch a performance at the outdoor theatre while enjoying a Karoo-style meal at our great restaurant.

Tower top room with round bed is great, lovely views. The onsite Art Centre is rich in experience and purpose - Large quilts depicting First Nation oral mythology. The host, Hilton, is a phenomenal chef. Make a point of eating there.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a peaceful 2 night stay at the Bethesda tower. The ladies were happy to talk about the artwork, which was very interesting. The room was clean and breakfast was good. Would recommend.
