King & Country Guest house is located in Dundee, “The Heart of the Battlefields”. It offers five elegantly decorated en-suite rooms, all named after the royals involved in the many battles fought in the area. The house itself is a restored Victorian style home. A fire in the records office in 1925 makes it impossible to date the building precisely, but with research and input from various historians, the house has been dated between 1896 and 1906, during the British occupation of the town.

The Victoria Room is named after Britain’s Queen Victoria, for her reign over British troops during the Anglo-Boer and Anglo-Zulu wars. This room has a queen size bed. The Cetshwayo Room is named after King Cetshwayo, King of the Zulus during the Anglo-Zulu war. This room has twin single beds. The Shaka Room is named after King Shaka, who did not really play a major role in any of the famous battles, but is known as the Zulu King who united the Zulu Nation. This same Zulu Nation went on to suffer the British their greatest ever defeat against a native force. This room has twin three-quarter beds.

The Dingane Room is named after King Dingane, who was Zulu King during the Anglo-Boer war and successor to King Shaka. This room has a queen size bed and its own entrance. The Napoleon Room is named after The Prince Imperial Louis Napoleon, who was killed in the area by the Zulu’s while on patrol with British forces. This room is a bachelor flat completely separate from the main house and is equipped as a self-catering unit. The room has a queen size bed and the entrance is in front of the swimming pool.
