  • If bookings are done through a travel agency, a valid voucher or official order is required prior to check-in.

Of course there are a few things you would like to know, and then there are a few matters we would like to bring under your attention so that you are not inconvenienced at all during your stay at The Crown.

We have card facilities, but only Master and Visa.

We are a Smoke Free Guesthouse, but we have sympathy, only a little though, with smokers. We allow smoking in the garden, as long as the birds don’t suffer. However, our rooms, bathrooms and other buildings have a strict no-smoking policy. Should the room smell of smoke, a R1 000.00 valet fee will be charged.

We do dinners, but it has to be booked no later than 15h00 on your date of arrival. Dinners are served in our dining room from 7h00 to 20h30.  We do not take food to the rooms.  If you want your food to be served in the room, we need notification no later than 16h30.

For early travellers, a breakfast hamper can be arranged on the previous day, no later than 16h00.

Breakfast is served from 7h00 – 9h00 weekdays and 7h30 to 9h30 on weekends and public holidays.  Special arrangements can be made, provided it is done the previous day before 17h00.
