Whether here for a short overnight stay or a long-term work project, Lancer's Inn offers comfort, security, quiet, and excellent dining on site, and is considered by regulars as one of the best places to stay in Lesotho. Historically, some of the street-front walls have been here over a century! Every room is different, so you don't feel like you... More

I am about to leave the beautiful mountain kingdom of Lesotho and have stayed at Lancer's Inn for twelve weeks. The hotel is in an excellent location in the centre of Maseru with easy access to amenities.

We spend two nights at Lancer's Inn during a business trip. Last night, I went to reception to ask if our TV could be fixed, so that my partner could watch soccer while we were working. The lovely Agnes arranged for a technician to come out, & when the TV proved to be u fixable, she very kindly moved us... More

I spent 5 weeks in Maseru on a job assignment and staying in one of the self contained flats at Lancers saved me. It is a lovely and homely place and the owners make every effort to ensure your stay is comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff and the location could not be better. Although the flat I stayed in... More

I was posted on assignment in Maseru for roughly three weeks and Lancer's Inn was highly recommended. I was a bit sceptical at first as the bigger hotels seemed more appealing. But having stayed at Lancer's, it truly is a wonderful oasis right in the middle of the city. It's really a compound of detached and semi-detached flats, chalets and... More

My work arranged my accommodations at Lancer's Inn during my first trip to Maseru. I was pleasantly surprised to find this wonderful place located in the middle of a very busy, not-so-nice looking area of the city. The compound is behind a high fence with a security guard at the entrance. I stayed in Chalet 3 for my 2-week trip.... More

We were warmly received and our waitress was very friendly and showed hospitality. Our food was great. Just our first dessert choice was not available. Hubby had lamb chops and I had chicken gordon bleu. Will return there.
