About 26 On Chamberlain Guest House

26 On Chamberlain is an award winning guest house having secured the Highly Commended Accolade in the AA/American Express Travel Awards as well as winning the 2014 Lilizela Tourism Award for the best guest house in the Eastern Cape. The establishment was both a finalist in the 2015 Lilizela Tourism Awards and a finalist in the 2015 Sanlam Best Destination Awards. Situated in Queenstown, overlooking the majestic landmarks of Bowkers Kop and Longhill, you will find this exclusive Victorian-style guest house. Construction of the guest house, which is completely separate from the main house, commenced in July 2009 and was completed in January 2010. Originally the property consisted of four erven and the address was 100 Berry Street, until the plot was sub-divided in the 1940’s. The house was designed in the typical Victorian style and became fondly known as “Chimney Tops”.The design of the guest house had to meet with Heritage Council standards. One of the requirements was that the new buildings be consistent with the main house, so as to maintain the Victorian style, hence the pitched gables, false shutters and mock sash windows. The building that houses bedrooms 1-7 is new, whereas bedrooms 8-12 were converted from a large stable block which was added to the property in 1937.Enjoy a luxurious stay in an original, authentic setting.

I highly recommend 26 On Chamberlain. The rooms were lovely and very clean, and the breakfast was superb. We visited in winter. The electric blankets were a life saver! The pool area must be lovely in summer. Thank you to Andrew and Charlotte.
