Bon Accord Guest House perfectly captures the warmth and hospitality found in the small community of Uniondale – on the fringes of the Klein Karoo.
Nestled in a valley – and overlooked by majestic mountains, Uniondale is accessible via either of two scenic mountain passes. Besides the friendly locals, visitors often note that it is among the cleanest towns in South Africa.
Uniondale is known to have a reasonably comfortable climate. Expect warm summer days that transform into pleasant evenings. The winter days are usually sunny but can be cold with snowfalls atop the mountains. Everything makes for great stopover during your escape into the countryside.
Situated along the town’s Main Street, with secure off-street parking, Bon Accord Guest House offers comfortable accommodation. They cater for bed and breakfast stays with old world charm plus good rates and personal service.
Your host, the guest house owner, is an avid biker. He thus welcomes travelling bikers and cyclists to stop over and experience the tranquility of Uniondale.
