Gamtoos B&B

We are situated in the Gamtoos Valley in the village of Patensie which is the last stop and gateway to the magnificent and undisturbed Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve, a World Heritage site.

Gamtoos B&B is ideally located for day trips, being within one hour's drive of Port Elizabeth and less to Jeffreys Bay, St Francis Bay, Cape St Francis and Port St Francis. Plettenberg Bay, the Garden Route, Tsitsikamma, the Langkloof and Addo are all within two hours' drive. Oudtshoorn, George and Knysna are only three hours away. Willowmore, via the Baviaanskloof, takes between five and six hours depending on how often one stops.

We can cater for tour groups of up to 15 in combination with neighbouring B&B's.

We offer tranquility, peace and hospitality at a reasonable price as well as braai facilities, safe parking, a swimming pool and privacy. Some of our rooms are air-conditioned.

Game viewing for groups can be arranged and the beautiful environment is ideal for walks, bird watching or for simply soaking up the natural beauty.

Gamtoos B&B's location is ideal for businessmen, being within a minute or two of all businesses.

The Gamtoos Valley is known for its excellent citrus which is exported world-wide and high quality potatoes. Many other crops are cultivated year-round under irrigation and the valley is well-known as the vegetable basket of the Eastern Cape.

There are two guest suites, each self contained and private. Accommodation can be on a B&B or self catering basis.

The first suite has a bedroom with a double bed and a family room with three single beds and an open plan kitchenette equipped with a fridge, microwave, 2 plate mini kitchen, kettle and all the ancilliaries. There is a bathroom with a bath, shower, toilet and hand basin.

The second suite has a spacious, air conditioned family room with a double bed and two single beds. There are a comfortable sitting area and a kitchenette equipped with a fridge, microwave, 2 plate mini kitchen kettle and all the other necessities. The bathroom is large and beautifully finished with a bath, shower, toilet and hand basin. It has a large, private deck and its own covered parking.

There is a large patio with braai and plunge pool.

Guests who wish to socialise are welcome to use the enormous lounge and bar.

Depending on the weather, guests can have breakfast either in the dining room or on a huge covered balcony with fabulous views of the valley and mountains.
