What a fabulous and warm hostess. Thank you Mai for the lively, fun chats, your willingness to help with dinner bookings and your knowledge of the town and area. A most delightful stay, excellent breakfast, lovely room with outside patio near pool. We will be back and will definitely stay at Mai's.

Mai's is a beautiful B & B from the outside to the rooms to the warmth of the owner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the breakfast, which was included in the price was superb. We would definitely stay there again.

We would definitely recommend a stay at Mai’s B&B, having recently stayed there on our trip home from the Cape - the rooms are homely, cheerful and well-equipped, and the guesthouse is very family-orientated. The sparkling pool is also a welcome treat after a hot day in the Karoo! Mai was the perfect, warm-and-friendly hostess, offering tips of things to...

We really enjoyed our stay at Mais. The hostess is extremely welcoming and the accommodation is very comfortable. Breakfast is freshly prepared each morning and was delicious. We enjoyed the pool and in mid summer, the airconditioning is a welcome plus.

Apart from a great bed and breakfast, Mai's a good place to stay as she helps out in advicing, phoning around and making sure you have what you need. She knows a lot of people in town and keeps on calling till she gets the information you need. Her garden and veranda are great to relax in between all activities.

Great place to stay. Rooms are spacious, beds are very comfortable & each have their own fridge and bathrooms. The guest house has a great pool to chill in the hot Karoo days. Mai's warm and friendly Irish hospitality is just amazing. Nothing is too much effort to ensure your stay is nothing but 5 star. Her knowledge of the...

A really charming place. All the rooms are full of character. The garden is very lovely, planted with many different kinds of herbs and fruit trees. It makes an excellent setting for the breakfast. Also the perfect place to gaze at the starlights at night. The hostess is warm and helpful. In short, this place is a winner.

A great, convenient place to stay where Mai will go the extra mile to make you comfortable and to help you. A special place that we would love to return to one day. Our only mistake was that we only stayed one night. Lots to see and do in Prince Albert.
