The Colonial on Arundel B&B is set in the picturesque, malaria free town of Addo bordering the Addo National Elephant Park and a short 45 minutes drive from the Port Elizabeth airport. The four star graded, superior rated Colonial on Arundel B&B is a magnificent period home, offering old world colonial luxury on a serene working Addo citrus farm. This Addo retreat with its luscious gardens, spacious and luxurious suites is owner managed by Molly and Conor O’Hagan Ward, former hoteliers and game lodge partners.
The Colonial is located a short 15 minutes from the Addo Elephant National Park and close to the many private game reserves which offer day visitors a Big 5 wildlife experience right on our doorstep. The Addo Elephant National Park was established in 1931 to save 11 Elephants on the brink of extinction and is home to Elephant, Lion, Cape Buffalo, Black Rhino, the rare Flightless Dung Beetle and a range of Antelope species. Experience the spectacular natural beauty on offer in Addo Elephant Park first hand with one of our in-house guided Addo Safari Tours and Game Drives.
The Addo Elephant Park, Addo Reptile and Raptor Centre, Addo Elephant Back Safaris, Schotia Safaris and other Addo attractions will provide guests with hours of pleasure.
The Colonial B&B features two large, spacious and airy luxury king sized suites. The Colonial suites are fitted with climate controlled bedroom-queen sized double bed, electric blankets, Percale linen or down duvets. A private lounge leading onto a small patio overlooking the beautiful garden and swimming pool. The suites are fully serviced.
Scrumptious farm style breakfasts and mouth watering dinners will ensure that your stay at the Colonial on Arundel remains a highlight of your visit to Addo. A full farmhouse breakfast, included in the rate, is served on the verandah of the main house, and this is the perfect start to what could be either an action packed day, or one at leisure, as you choose, relaxing at the private guest splash pool or under the huge Tippiana trees in the gardens overlooking the citrus orchards.
Two or three course set menu dinners are available on advance request only and served at 19:45 in the poolside boma.
Poolside lounge and boma:
The poolside lounge and boma area is a popular evening gathering place for guests to meet and mingle and features a full indoor braai (barbeque). After a full days Addo Tour with the in-house guide, Conor guests can relax, refresh and recharge in the well protected boma or relax alongside the swimming pool with a favourite book.
