Our community

A better base of supporters would be hard to come by, as the town of Wellington so frequently supports us; for this we are most grateful and we try to give back as best we can. Cummings Guesthouse is a proud sponsor for both Hugenote High School, and Die Bordinghuis/Breytenbach Sentrum (our local town theatre). We’re also involved with the local municipality in keeping our town neat and tidy, so visitors can enjoy our public areas on sunny days.

Our history

Cumming Street 20, a neglected old house in 1999 was originally renovated to become home to the Visser-family – very practical and spacious but with a warm and wholesome atmosphere.

In 2001 Mattie, co-owner and hostess, identified the gap between the demand and supply in the hospitality industry in Wellington and together with the natural structure of the house which lend itself to it, Cummings Guesthouse was established as a well-known and sought-after destination within three years.

Cummings Guesthouse was the first accommodation-establishment in Wellington to be graded and awarded three stars by the National Grading Council.  This elevated the standard of service delivery across the town’s hospitality industry.
