This well-known landmark, originally known as Commercial Hotel, dates back to the 19th century.  It forms an integral part of the proud tradition of Middelburg.

Its claim to fame is that it is the oldest existing business in town.

Accommodation has been modernized to measure up to present day standards.  The old dining-room now houses a restaurant, but it did not lose its charm.  Old photos remind the visitor of a bygone ara and, add to it, ornate metal

A quick look at the ladies’ bar proves to be just as exciting with photos of a Middelburg Brass Band, Middelburg Volunteer Fire Brigade Winning Section 1910, soldiers in the streets and more.

Do not ignore this gem, but take a good look at it.
