My wife and also stayed here on 14th March. A charming place and a very warm welcome from a real character. You definitely feel right at home from the outset. The outdoor breakfast with all the finishing touches to the breakfast table was excellent.

As you enter Prince Albert your shoulders drop and a smile appears, there is something magical about this little Karoo town. The magic continues at Mai's. It's like visiting a friend's wonderful country house but not having to help with the washing up! The rooms are airy and spotless and the garden where a delicious breakfast is served is a...

Real Irish hospitality. The decor absolutely stunning. The bed slept like a dream and the room really wonderful and clean. I would recommend this lodge to anyone that do not like the clinical sterile hotel.

We had a warm Irish welcome from Mai when we arrived in Prince Albert. Mai had already pre booked our dinner for us fortunately at The Gallery as it was full that night. The accommodation was comfortable and the breakfast delicious. We will stay again if we travel through the area.

In December we stayed at Mai's Guest Lodge again, and wow, it is still just as amazing as we remembered. Mai truly did feel like our most beloved aunt, as another reviewer pointed out. This time around we stayed in a very spacious room in the main house, and loved it. Not that there is anything not to love about...
