I visited for a business trip and enjoyed my stay a lot. The staff was very friendly and the food both breakfast and as a restaurant was excellent. The room had everything you would expect and the grounds are neat and create a nice relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend it and definitely stay again .

Rooms were clean, not so much day light in our room, very friendly service, excellent dinner at the restaurant although our arrival was very late that evening. Rooms to garden/pool are nicer than those to the parking area.

The service and friendliness of the staff is outstanding. The rooms are nice and clean and have whatever you need as a guest. The food from the restuarant is divine and is well presented. The location of the guest house is situated in a quiet area as the town of Middleburg experience noise pollution of the passing by truck.

Even though ours was a last minute booking, and we arrived very late at night, the lady at reception went out of her way to provide us with a late night snack. We will definitely come back to Celtic. We felt pampered.

I love staying at Celtis. It is super clean, nicely modern and the staff are fabulous. The restaurant is a good convenience and we really had nothing to complain about. We usually stay in one of the garden cottages which gives you such a feeling of freedom and space.
