It's fun to explore the old etched graffiti on the external walls and wonder what life would have been like here for a British prisoner during the Boer war. A great attempt to make something out of an historic building. The location within the town is less than expiring, but it's safe and secure (of course!) with good parking. Small shared kitchen and braai area. Beware that the rooms (cells!) can get very hot in the summer, so you will need to rely on the free-standing air conditioners which aren't the greatest and of course no use at all during load-shedding (no standby generator). The owner also runs the excellent coffee shop in the centre of town where the breakfast is really good. Note that none of the rooms have windows - it's a jail!
Lovely experience but glad I was not a prisoner when it was used as prison. Will be a bit muddy to get to your room when raining otherwise loose sand. Safe parking. Clean and comfortable. Find Britstown bit pricey in comparison to other small towns
We loved our stay at the jail. We had a super warm welcome by our host. The room was comfortable, cool and unique. Great linen, lovely towels and everything was well thought out. Obviously being an old cell our room had no windows. This actually made the experience even more peaceful. The lovely old wooden floors and high ceiling added to the experience. We will be back
