Gilbert House B&B

Gilbert House B&B is situated in the upmarket part of Volksrust, offering comfortable accommodation in Mpumalanga. The historical nature and the unique location make for a relaxed atmosphere.

We offer two beautiful bedrooms opening up onto a landscaped garden or swimming pool. There is a lovely dining area for all meals and a central living area for socialising. Our heated indoor swimming pool is ideal, but not for the winter months. We have a lovely art gallery for the more curious and artistic guests, as well as historic books and newspapers available.

Volksrust is a quaint South African town with plenty of historical and cultural sights. Situated close to many famous battle sites, Volksrust became a municipality in 1904 and is currently the commercial centre of an area where maize, wool, sorghum, sunflower seed, beef and dairy are all farmed and produced.
