We stopped over for just one night and we were welcomed like old friends by the wonderful hosts Hennie and Sandra. The whole house is nicely decorated with antiques and the yard immaculately kept. I fell in love with Hennie's blue Chevy, how I wish I had asked for a ride. Our Queen Room was quiet spacious, neat and nicely...

It was a pleasant stay at De Oude Huize Yard. Sandra and Hennie add to the old world charm of our stay with them. Their friendly way of doing things and the delicious food were a nice experience. Thanks for the nice photo you emailed to us.

We received the most excellent and genuinely welcoming service from Hennie and Sandra. Our room was tastefully and individually furnished and decorated. Breakfast was very good and was nicely presented. On-site parking is very easy. WiFi worked problem-free. Harrismith, of course, will be just a stopover for most as it has very little to offer in its own right. A...

Quirky B&B with an incredibly warm welcome. I love the eccentricities of the fixtures and fittings. The food was fantastic. Dinner was high end restaurant quality. I wish I could have stayed longer and will definitely return.

A blissful stopover on our way home from Pretoria. Hennie and Sandra are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to ensure that every comfort is attended to.

Very friendly and personal reception. A very comfortable stay in this quiet and quaint oasis in this town. The breakfast and dinner were well above what you might expect from a small guesthouse. Make sure you have the meals when you stay here. The wine does not quite match the quality of the food but the warm welcome and comfortable...

“Although each room has its own entrance, the Wisdom & Folly room is away from the other rooms and dining room so felt more private.”

“Nice rooms, we slept with three couples in different rooms. Furniture is nice, quality of beds could be better and because it is a old house sometimes a bit noisy. But anyhow it was a great experience and very nice authentic B&B.”
