Lancer's Inn is in the heart of Maseru, the capital of Lesotho. It is a very charming inn with self catering cottages, rose bed studded gardens and a most friendly staff. Many of the guests are on relatively long term stays, and there is a sense of community and every Tuesday evening there are is a free cocktail and hors... More

I have stayed at Lancers Inn several times, and have always enjoyed it. It's homely and has the personal touch that the "big box" hotels lack. Good service. Very well located for government offices. Restaurant is also good. Varied rooms, from thatched rondavels to larger "flats" for longer stays.

Lancer's Inn in Maseru is definitely going to see more of me when I need to be in Maseru. They provided everything that I needed for a successful day of business in Lesotho. The staff were friendly, very helpful and happy to assist with the logistics of meetings and refreshments for my business guests. The rooms are neat and well... More

If you are travelling to Maseru you could stay at one of the chain hotels like the Lesotho Sun or the Maseru Sun, or you could opt for a hotel with a more individual character, like the Lancers Inn. I would choose the Lancers Inn, for three reasons. First, it’s quirky. There are crests and flags for the Dutch and... More

Staff is patient, friendly smiling, and will advise in case you can't choose! In case you just wanna stop for a drink or you wanna do a quick check on your presentation before a business meeting Lancer's Inn has got the garden for that. The food feels and tastes quite like home-made with a modern contemporary touch. The bar and... More

Located right in the heart of Maseru, this place is the favourite stay for expats and business travellers. Clean, efficient and reliable - often fully booked! But - staff has become quite arrogant, why should they bother (seems to be the guideline), they come in any case. Food at the restaurant is equally good, decently priced - but very much... More

For all the people who are complaining/making negative comments - this is Africa so dont bring your 1st world biases here. It it is a well run hotel with nice rooms and pleasant staff. For those who found them unhelpful perhaps it was YOUR attitude that was at fault. The food is perfectly acceptable and the medium rare fillet steak... More

Rooms: I stayed in the round, hut-like rooms and really enjoyed it. The sunlight was at a good angle so it was cozy and spacious. Bed and bathroom were in good condition and the place was clean and tidy. There is no room service, and if you want to call the front desk (it would appear, though I'm not certain)... More

I must admit lancers inn is far better than all the hotels we've slept in in Maseru but if you want to enjoy a good night sleep on weekends, forget it. We checked in on a Friday hoping to get a good rest before our early morning trip to Sterkspruit. I could not believe it when the party/rave nearby went... More
