Accommodation description:

Bed & Breakfast / Camping & Caravanning

About 6km North of Colesberg you will find this wonderful Bed and breakfast accommodation Zylsvlei. This well-known accommodation is near the N1 National road. The small farm offers very safe overnight accommodation where children can enjoy the open spaces and the farm feel. Our B&B is located outside the town and this creates a peaceful experience with no traffic to spoil your well-deserved break. 

The rondawel thatched roofs immediately creates a different atmosphere and set the mood for a holiday feeling with the thatched rondawels or family rooms that are all equipped with en-suite bathrooms. We have made changes to our premisses and know that our well-built customer base will enjoy these new renovations adding to a  even better experience.

For the Caravan and camper holiday enthusiast we  offer 6 caravan stands with power points and have ample space if you would like to camp overnight in your tent.

Sitting in our lovely thatched dining room area you can enjoy a breakfast to get you ready for the road or have something like our very popular karoo lamb for dinner. If you are more outdoor incline you can do your own barbecue (braai) with facilities available. Enjoy a swim after all that hours on the road.

The best place to be during the cold Colesberg winters is at our warm fireplace in the open lounge area. Relax and use our popular bar to quench that thirst.

If hunting is your thing, then we are perfectly situated with hunting activities nearby.

When visiting Van Zylsvlei Bed&breakfast you will experience sincere friendly and warm karoo hospitality. You will be welcomed by your friendly hosts Annelie and Deon Dohne.

We are looking forward to meeting you.
