The rooms and restaurant look wonderful but the staff take extremely long before any service is provided. I would not say that this is value for money, on the day of arrival the room was prepared perfectly,but on the second day we had to ask a few times before the room was finally cleaned (11:30). Since then the cups and... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Lancer's Inn - previous time was in 2011. On both occasions, I stayed in a room in the main wing. The first thing to be aware of is that the windows have bars for security reasons, but they cannot be opened from the inside. Definitely a hazard in the case... More

Lancer's Inn offers a variety of accommodation types (rooms, chalets, houses, rondavels, suites) to match the visitor's need. The food is not an adventure but honestly good and the service impeccable. Booking a room is not very easy considering the number of people staying for long and renewing their stay at the last moment. We had one rondavel (35), and... More

The Lancer's Inn is a very interesting hotel. The front part is a historical building with the rest added later as time went by. I have probably stayed here about 10 times, normally 5 days at a time. They have a combination of self containing units, flats, rooms, rondawels and hotel rooms. Rondawels for those that don't know are traditional... More

The best thing about the Lancers Inn (actually most places in Lesotho), is the friendly staff. Everyone you bump into, from the gardeners to the manager will greet you with a smile and a friendly chat if you have the time. The unit I stayed in was slightly old, but spotlessly clean and contained all the amenities you can hope... More

It was a little difficult to confirm a booking with the hotel. After the initial contact via email confirming the price and availability, I emailed to make the reservation, but got no response. Needed to call a couple of times before finally receiving confirmation. We arrived before check-in time, but they allowed us to put our luggage in the room.... More

Maseru has some very expensive and cheap hotels (the latter of which should be avoided), with not too much in-between. Lancer's Inn is the best in the moderate priced stakes and right in the centre of town. You could easily walk to many places. I stayed in one of the rooms, not the rondavels. It was quiet and clean, although... More

This is a good alternative to the Lesotho Sun—less expensive and the in-town location is very convenient for several restaurant options, and the near-by Shoprite and Pioneer Mall are easy walking distance. The included breakfast is good—fruit, juice and cereal, plus eggs cooked to order. The rondavels are spacious, and equipped with combination AC/heat pumps, so they are cosy even... More

Just returned to UK after week in Lesotho. Stayed at the Lancer's for 2 nights in the new rondeveld style room. Very comfortable and great service. Evening meal was good and breakfast was satisfying. Thanks again for a great stay.

Clean, efficient inn in the heart of Maseru. Nothing fancy but very comfortable. Staff competent if a bit slow to respond sometimes, but they will respond. Easy walking distance to shopping and many government offices. Nice breakfast (eggs to order), cereal, etc. Nice stay, I would stay here again.
