Went up to Himeville for a friends wedding recent;y and while I've been to the Arms many times, this was the first time I stayed over there. My room itself didn't have a fire place which is fine, but the wall mounted heater was cracked and not working. When outside temperatures are -3C, a warmed room and heated bed would... More

I did not stay at the hotel but had a really fantastic lunch in the pub. The theme is very much around trout fly fishing as the area is renowned for this, and it has a lovely old central wood bar where you can get numerous craft beers on tap. It has loads of atmosphere and I found the food... More

We arrived here after a 6 hour drive from Johannesburg. The drive is beautiful itself after you leave the N3 and drive past Howick and start heading up into the mountains. The weather here in February was a scorching 28 degrees and wonderful! The village of Himeville is just past a larger village/town of Underberg where there are shops /... More

There is a very good restaurant next to it. Every dish we tried was amzingly yummy! The staff were all cheerful and accomodating. The... More

I had stayed at the Himeville on one other occasion and spent a few evening in the bar a few years ago. The standard of it has severely dropped. The hotel rooms looked okay and the backpackers was bad. The showers in the backpackers left a lot to be desired. The bar I knew had lost its usual comfort and... More

This is a place that has so much potential but is clearly tired. Rooms could be spruced up and breakfasts made to be more than just average. Not cheap for what you get. Great location for visits to Sani Pass. Lack of water one morning - no shower possible, which we had to try and address, without initiative from reception... More

We enjoyed some tea in the lounge, with load music bellowing out of the kitchen. A definate case of "when the... More
