Charming old world pub with excellent pub food. Kids meals very good too. Really worth fitting into your schedule when in the area. As a family we have made Lunch at the Himeville Arms an annual vist and have never been dissapointed.

Simple accommodation in good size rooms. Rooms and bathrooms could do with an update. We had no water the first night..... Showers would be more water efficient. Pub has a good atmosphere for rugby watching. More staff would have made for more drinking and more profit!!! Dining room cosy. Food especially the curries were delicious. Service was again slow- more... More

An 1900 décor and service. The Himeville Arms looks and feels like you have gone back in time. The furniture all is from that era and all well preserved although some could stand to be reupholstered but I understand that a refurb is in the offing in the near future as it has been sold and is about to be...

En route to the Sani Pass, we were recommended this hotel, established in 1904, by quite a few people and we were not disappointed. The owner makes it his business to make sure that all is well and the food was superb.

We decided to have a white sheet night (not camp) looked around and decided to stay at the Himeville Arms for two nights. Found the staff and Manager pleasant enough. Food was good, lovely curry but the mountain trout not great. Breakfast was good. Room was a big disappointment, for the price it was dark and the parka flooring was... More

A nice old gem of a pub. Great atmosphere with lots of old memorabilia. Food was good - de-boned trout and a really nice chicken burger. The service was good and the wine list was surprisingly large and varied. We will return on our next visit to the area.

This hotel is reputadly one of the oldest in the area and whislt it has a "quaint" element it is badly let down by its service. The staff are friendly enough but too few or poorly trained or poorly managed or a mix of all three. The food quality was okay but slow service means s it is inevitably cold... More

Stopping off at this hotel for a pub lunch after a trip up Sani Pass. I delighted in the fact that the hotel is 110 years old. It still has much of its original fittings etc, but alas they have been allowed to fall into disrepair, what a pity. When one ones a gem like this striving for mediocrity is... More
