The most amazing place to stay at. Comfortable well equipped and tastefully furnished rooms. Great food and friendly hosts. Very reasonably priced. If you own a 4x4 explore with Philip the possibility of a guided tour into Lesotho - it is a fantastic trip - Philip is passionate and so knowledgeable about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

The rooms are impeccably clean and stylish, especially the proudly South African duvet covers. The owners and staff are very friendly and treat you like you the most important guest. I'm in-love with this place, can't get it out of my mind. The food was amazing..the beef smelted like butter in my mouth.

If you plan to visit Lesotho, please take Philip Rawlins. the owner with you. He is an excellent guide and knows the best places to take you to into the mountains. Without him we would have missed the most beautiful scenery in all Lesotho. We would love to go back there sometime in the future!

Clean room with all the required amenities, superb food and a host who is knowledgeable about travel in and around Lesotho. This was my second visit, will definitely be back again. Centrally located, it is the ideal venue from which to plan day trips.
