About 3 Darling Street Guest House

Three Darling Street Guest House is a typical Karoo Victorian House. Declared a National Monument in the mid-nineties. All our rooms are en-suite and are decorated in traditional style. Antique furniture and works of art including period tapestries.

Log fires in winter make a stay over in Hanover comfortable and relaxing. We grow our own fruit and veggies and are known for the quality of our meals and service.

Our garden is well established....the house was built in 1848. Ample shade from ancient trees make the garden a delight in summer. Opposite our main house we have a Victorian cottage...all rooms en-suite and our restaurant ..also opposite the main house has a country house feel and superb food.

We are blessed with wonderful staff who take an interest in our guests needs and our cooks Maricelle and Ruanda take great care to see that every meal is a delight.

The town of Hanover was featured in Country Life June 2000 and 3 Darling Street received high praise. We have also been featured in Getaway Magazine... Top of The Times Home Owner South Africa and many other publications.
