About Bethesda Tower

Unique accommodation experienced in an enchanting tower at a vibrant arts centre in the Karoo village of Nieu Bethesda. The Bethesda Arts Centre Tower is located 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.

The Tower is a fairytale building three stories high. On the top floor is a huge round bed, covered with a 'love quilt' made at the project. The middle room has twin beds, so Bethesda Tower is ideal for a couple wanting a romantic night, or an adventurous family wanting a completely unique experience. There are wonderful views of the surrounding hills from the Tower balcony, and at night you can sit and sip your wine under the stars in the round stone courtyard, in privacy and complete safety. 

Delicious meals are served in the Arts Centre's restaurant-gallery, where you can browse the exquisite bags, cushion covers, wall hangings, and prints made at the centre, or chat to the artists while you wait for a fine meal prepared from local produce in the Tower kitchen.

The Priory is named after the Priory in England where its stunning 1820 stained-glass windows came from. It sleeps a maximum of seven people, with the beds covered in quilts and the walls covered with artwork both made at the centre. A beautiful stone courtyard with its own barbecue area offers privacy in a charming outdoor setting. Here you can gaze at the famous Bethesda night sky while you sip your wine.

Nights spent in the centre's friendly and quirky accommodation will not only give you the chance to meet the local artists, but to know that you are supporting a worthwhile project that is changing people's lives.

                  The friendly staff. The nice food. Great Wi-Fi. The nice safe Town. Aircons in a room can be a plus. Maybe a small basin in the room.Establishments response:Dear Mr Marajh, It was lovely meeting you and your family. We enjoyed hosting you. Thanks for the comments. We’ve been thinking of adding a few new amenities, for example, an en-suite bathroom. So hopefully on your next visit, we would have some new features. With Best Wishes,

                  Lovely little spot to lay your head for a night. Centrally located in Nieu Bethesda with a staff of warm and friendly people welcoming you completely. Spotlessly clean and very very private, we will most certainly spend another night here on our travels. Establishment response:Dear Ms Steel, Our guests often tell us how helpful it is to read past guests' comments before booking their own visits. And we're always eager to hear what you liked, so thank you very much for sharing your experiences. With Best Wishes,Gerald
