We've been in South Africa now for 3 weeks staying at B&Bs and guesthouses. The rooms here are excellent, very large, well laid out and comfortable. We had one dinner here which was really outstanding and very reasonably priced, which was due to Molly's cooking skills that also showed in the great breakfasts. On our game drive to Addo with...

The Colonial At Arundel – It was the best B&B we have experienced in our many trips to South Africa.. We had a lovely time – the Drive in Addo NP with Connor was amazing – he is so knowledgeable! We loved the elephants and it was a bonus being able to see lion (even though they were a long...

If you want to be looked after in comfort, you won't be disappointed at the Colonial. You will be treated much more as "a paying guest" with Conor to take you on a guided tour of Addo. While I understand that it may be necessary to put notices up about "dos and don'ts", it just detracts slightly from the excellence...

From the moment we arrived at the Colonial for a 4 night stay with friends we relaxed. Our suite was luxurious with private pool, and we were extremely well looked after and fed like fighting cocks. Molly's cooking is to die for, likewise Conor's charm, friendliness and knowledge of game. We had one of the best, if not the best,...

Molly and Conor are welcoming, wonderful hosts. We loved the guest lodge which was extremely comfortable. The dinner we had and the breakfast were superb. We had a marvellous time on our game drive with Conor who is extremely knowledgeable. We heartily recommend this B&B. We hope we visit again.

After our first visit we knew that we would have to go again. The setting is superb in beautiful surroundings and so relaxing. Molly and Conor are excellent hosts and most welcoming. Accommodation and Molly's cooking are first class. Addo elephant drive with Conor is great for he has so much knowledge about the animals I am sure he knows...

I've never felt so welcomed. First by Zach the labrador, then by a maid who showed us our suite and brought us tea and mince pies, and finally by Conor and Molly themselves. The house is exactly as depicted in the photographs - a beautiful, rambling farmhouse set in lush gardens and surrounded by citrus groves. We had the Fitzpatrick...

From the moment we arrived at the Colonial on Arundel we felt at home. Molly and Conor were outstanding hosts who offered us extended hospitality during our stay.

We have just spent two nights at this delightful guesthouse. I agree with all the positive comments made previously. The property is situated on a citrus farm and as soon as you arrive you have a feeling of peace and relaxation. Molly and Connor are very warm, hospitable and interesting to talk to. We thoroughly enjoyed Connor's game drive, greatly...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the name suggests, "Colonial Africa" is the theme in architecture, decor, setting and atmosphere of The Colonial on Arundel. Nestling in citrus orchards on a working farm, only 10 minutes from the malaria free Addo Elephant National Park, this 4 star 2-suite facility offers understated luxury, coupled with relaxed, friendly attention, and is enhanced by highly acclaimed cuisine. Each suite has private entrance, its own private lounge and private swimming pool. Attention to detail in the suites is a trademark of Molly's personality...luxury guest amenities, toweling gowns, tea & coffee facilities, safes, swimming towels, coffee table books and magazines, alarm clock. In-house safaris with Conor, the owner and a registered guide, to the Addo Elephant National Park, will enhance your African adventure. These tours are undertaken in a air-conditioned vehicle and offer the visitor an experience in wildlife, culture and unforgettable scenery. Conor and Molly have created a truly special place that goes to the very heart of relaxation and comfort. Within easy reach are mountain walks, horse-riding, elephant back safaris, farm excursions, cheetah breeding farm tours and visits into nearby private reserves. The Colonial is truly a place where our guests leave as friends, to return time and time again. The warm welcome feeling extends right down to our Head of Public Relations, Marley the Labrador, who successfully creeps into everyone's heart. Within a 45-minute drive of Port Elizabeth Airport and the beaches, and also the gateway to the Karoo, as well as to the Garden Route to Cape Town, The Colonial on Arundel is truly the desirable Eastern Cape place to be in every respect. Welcome to the real Africa. ... more   less
