About Sandflats B & B

Far from the madding crowd, you will find the tranquil country village of Paterson, close to Addo National Elephant Park where the only sounds disturbing you are the sounds of nature. Here you will find the Sandflats Hotel, where your hosts, Rudy and Denise Wilhelmi, are looking forward to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

The Sandflats Hotel is ideally located for the visitor to make it a base from which to experience the best that the beautiful and diverse Eastern Cape has to offer. You can soak up the early morning sun on one of the many safe beaches around Port Elizabeth, spend the day in historical Grahamstown in the heart of South Africa's Settler country and enjoy an evening game drive at the Schotia Game reserve.

Sandflats Hotel/B and B was built at the turn of the last century, and is a quaint establishment reminiscent of a bygone era, offering clean and comfortable rooms and a host of facilities for the discerning traveller. Have your evening meal in the Lapa, browse in the Curio Shop - cool off in the splash pool or meet the locals in the Bar.

Accommodation is on a bed and breakfast basis or self-catering in The Bank or Winters Cottage - both sleeps up to six persons.

We are centrally situated within 20 to 30 minutes’ drive of six malaria free game reserves - all offering a unique African experience. Africa begins here, where the Tourist is King.

                                      Good beds. Hot water and splash pool to cool down

                                      It would be nice to have WiFi and a tv or radio. An in-house shop where you can buy food or snacks.

                                      Home away from home. If you like your privacy and prefer to do it yourself, this is perfect. We booked for easy access to Addo Elephant National Park, short distance for exploring Grahamstown, Bathurst, Port Alfred and Port Elizabeth. Definitely would stay there again.

                                      What a unique setting, this little Town of Sandflats is really different, Friendly Host and Hostess, and very unusual room, We stayed in the Towns’ “Old Bank”, very clean and all you need for a stay over to enter into Addo.

                                      Spent a night on our way from Jhb to the Garden route. They are conveniently just off the main road. Our room was self catering and slept 4 on single beds in an open bedroom/ living room. The building is old and in need of some Tlc, but was clean and was all we needed. It was freezing cold and the bathroom is a long way from the beds which aren't very comfortable. If you are on a tight budget and aren't looking for luxury this could be an ideal base to explore Addo.
