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.

We were very happy with the size and cleanliness of our room and the warm welcome we received from the owners. The food was good and plenteous. It only loses one star because of the slight lack of design flair in the decoration of the rooms, but we highly recommend a stay.

This very welcoming bnb had everything I could possibly ask for. While i had the privacy of my own room, myself and my colleague felt very much at home in the dining room where we enjoyed a delicious homely meal. A friendly couple that goes out of their way to ensure your comfort. Thank you and I will be back!

My wife and I stopped in for a place to stay on our bicycle tour through the region. It was raining and we couldn't have stumbled upon a better spot to stay the night. It's a family run establishment and you can tell that they take pride in what they do. Clean, cozy rooms, excellent home cooked dinner (including a...

I really didn't expect to find a place like this in a small town like Matatiele. The service is first class with the owners taking a very hands on approach. Really comfortable rooms and a relaxing environment. No need to go and eat out in town when they also serve hearty meals right there. Definitely worth the stopover travelling through...

Phillip and Elrita, did everything they could to make our stay a good one. The food was wholesome and delicious. The accommodation was extremely comfortable with clean private ablution facilities and of course the chocolate provided was a thoughtful extra. We were given information about trips that can be taken, hosted by Phillip, in to Lesotho, as well as road...
