‘Life isn’t measured in hours and minutes. It’s the quality, not the length.’

self catering luxury guest house

Nieuwehuyz is a 5 star rated self-catering guesthouse in Prince Albert and the region.  Nieuwehuyz is located in Nieuwe Street which is two streets back from Prince Albert’s main road.  It is within easy walking distance to the ‘main strip’ with excellent restaurants and other amenities.


Park and leave your vehicle at Nieuwehuyz and attend a show at the Showroom Theatre (Saturday evenings), visit the galleries, art and craft shops, the weaver, our Museum, and much more…your only concern is to pace yourself – have a light breakfast | brunch at one spot, proceed to the next spot for coffee and cake and then enjoy a refreshing drink on the patio | stoep of the Swartberg Hotel.

home away from home

Nieuwehuyz was specifically designed and built to accommodate either a couple or single person in need of a luxury retreat and wanting to unwind in a very private setting – a home away from home in the true sense in a private setting.

bedroom with en-suite bathroom

This guest house has one main bedroom and an annex with two double beds.  Both rooms are en-suite and air-conditioned.

living space

The lounge, dining room and kitchen are open plan and lead onto an enclosed and very private courtyard.  Relax on the leather couch in front of the fireplace or on the hand crafted oak chairs outside where fountains create a tranquil ambience.


The kitchen is equipped with Le Creuset kitchenware and Smeg appliances.  The fresh coffee beans as well as unpasteurised milk, juice and yoghurt from the local dairy await guests and add to making Nieuwehuyz feel like a home from home.

universal accessible

Many universal accessible and green architecture design elements and considerations were incorporated into the planning and construction of Nieuwehuyz.  For example, the vertical grab rails in the main bathroom are not obvious as they were integrated with the other architectural design features in the bathroom.  Similar consideration and attention to detail was given to the lighting (natural and artificial), gradients and level differences, under counter accessibility, height of switches and controls, as well as ventilation and climate control.  Level access from the paved parking area to the side entrance and patio is provided.  The main bedroom is spacious with a sliding door.  All environmental controls are within reach of the bed.  The bathroom is spacious with a large roll-in shower and equipped with lever taps, adjustable shower head as well as two overhead showers.  The dining area and spacious kitchen leads onto the enclosed courtyard through wide sliding doors.
