About Midgleys Hotel

Midgleys Hotel

Midgley's Hotel, standing in the heart of Adelaide in South Africa's Eastern Cape, is an historical hotel with the old world charm of high-ceilinged spaciousness, solid wood furniture and fittings.

The oldest portion of the hotel dates back to 1858 and faces onto the town square. It was built by the Midgley family as an hotel and has remained so ever since.

Since then the hotel has changed hands a number of times and has seen its ups and downs. 

In the old days there was stabling for guests' horses and passengers arriving by railway were met by horse and cart.

There also used to be two large oil lamps which served as a beacon for travellers approaching Adelaide at night before the advent of street lighting.

The charm of that bygone era surrounds the visitor of to-day.

Midgley's Hotel offers 24 bedrooms. Three of these are family rooms.  Many enjoy a pleasant outlook on the trees and the town square.

All the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with either a bath, a shower or both bath and shower.

The dining room is large and airy and seats up to 60 people.  It offers a la carte meals to guests and visitors alike.

Midgley's Hotel prides itself upon its cooking and, Adelaide being part of South Africa's prime beef producing area, you will have to travel far indeed to find a steak or beef dish to equal what you will eat here.

There are conference facilities for 25 to 30 people.
