The Old Jail Guest House & Gallery - Beautiful 4 Star Guest House with Art Gallery & selected Antiques in the heart of the Karoo, Willowmore, Eastern Cape

The Old Jail in the peaceful farming town of Willowmore offers a unique experience for tourists, business travellers and sports enthusiasts seeking quality accommodation in the Karoo. Flanked by the spectacular Baviaanskloof and Swartberg mountain ranges, this striking 1880's building is on the edge of the town and is one of the finest examples of Victorian architecture in the area...

Registered by the Government in 1895, the building is built of stone, the walls being half a metre thick with plaster “quions” (corners) on the windows, doors and wall corners. The Old Gaol, as it was then called, comprised a hospital cell, hard labour cells, awaiting trial cells, a female cell and kitchen cell.

Now lovingly restored and renovated, the building is surrounded by attractive landscaped gardens. Although oozing character and retaining many original features, it has now been given a new – and less intimidating – lease of life as a welcoming B&B and art gallery!
