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

Had their 40R Tuesday special in the bar with a pint. Really enjoyed it. Not fine dining but good grub. Rustic place. Took a very long time for food to come so order as soon as you go in if you are hungry.

After leaving booking too late to get into some of the better rated lodges in the Berg booked in at the Himeville Arms for the night. After having stayed there 15 years ago, and having heard some bad reports in the interim we were a little apprehensive about our stay. We were pleasantly surprised with the neat clean accommodation and... More

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

I had a very spacious room with a lounge and a fire place which was perfect for my winter visit! The very spacious bathroom had a bath tub and the warm water. The room was well-kept. 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
