Dating back to 1828, the Central Hotel Guest House forms part of Simon’s Towns historical mile incorporating many years of memories in its ancient walls. Built by George Huskinson it was here that Vincent and Grout’s omnibuses and post-carts collected and delivered the Royal Mail to the local postmaster.
The building was bought by the Ohlsson’s Cape Breweries in 1894 from the estate of George Bowern. It was converted into the Central Hotel, and it formed part of the Breweries’ overall drive to own as many hotels as possible in order to promote beer sales.
The Hotel thrived until well after World War II.
In 1987 the building was purchased by the Coetzee family and is today still owned and mananged by Malinda Coetzee.
After various renovations the Central Hotel Guest House now consist of nine comfortable en-suites with beautiful Victorian dècor and a touch of modern flair.
