We were visiting a friend in Maseru and he took us here for a weekend getaway. Hard to describe just what a peaceful and lush place this is. I'll never forget the stunning afro-alpine views and our fun-if-slightly-risky horse-back ride. On top of everything, the lodge is run by the loveliest of hosts. Highly recommended!

What a delight, we were pleasantly surprised with The Trading post. We stayed over for one night in the main house, the service and food was of the highest quality. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.Will definitely visit them again.

I am one week into a six-week research trip, and I may never leave this place. What a delightful little gem of a place tucked away in Roma, Lesotho. I can't say enough great things about this property, the folks who manage/own it, and the staff who work here. I've been spoiled rotten by both my room (a rhondaval with... More

Off the beaten path but not far from Roma, the Trading Post is a lovely, reasonable and rustic B & B with warm African decor and leafy rambling grounds for relaxing or having tea. There's a shop a very short walk from the property to stock up on snacks, and a nice breakfast that was far too much food for... More

My wife and I have stayed at Trading Post Roma many times. Beginning in 2001 I have also brought five groups with roughly 14 people in each to Trading Post for a ten day project. Virtually all comments have been favorable. We (and they) love the family atmosphere and care provided by the Thorn family and their staff. The rooms... More

It's only half an hour from busy and crowded Maseru, and if you're looking for a quiet, and really nice place to stay, with a welcoming attitude - this is it. We got there after a very long day, coming all the way from Sani Pass, via Mokhotlong, Afriski, the norh-eastern wonderful Moteng pass, and then all the way to... More

I have been all over Lesotho and the Trading Post is my favorite place to stay, hands down. The staff are all warm and welcoming and helpful; the owners are wonderful and committed members of their community; and the facilities are comfortable. It is not a fancy place - if you want to sit in your hotel room and watch... More

We stayed here for two nights over Christmas. The owners Ashley and Jenny made us feel so welcome over Christmas, inviting us to join them and some other guests for Christmas lunch at their other lodge, the Ramabanta Trading Post. They even gave us a Christmas present, which was lovely as we didn't have anything else to open! The room... More

I travelled with a couple of friends trough southern Africa, and I found the trading post B&B just to be the perfect spot to stay in Roma. The B&B is right at the entrance to the village. We got some of the huts to stay in. The beds were cozy and soft, and since it was winter, they even had... More

At the Thorns Trading Post, you will find an incredible staff who will treat you like family. The owners are eager to help you out with anything you need, be it using their personal Wifi or getting a quick puppy fix, or asking about the artwork throughout the compound. Jenny helped me purchase some artwork from the room with ease... More
