Easily found in the Main Street of Prince Albert we parked immediately outside Mai's Guest Lodge and stumbled out of the car after a long journey from the Eastern Cape, looking forward to an evening of relaxation. We were immediately greeted by Mai and spent the next half hour draped over the comfortable seating in her hallway chatting about a... More

We booked Mai's because of its ranking on Tripadvisor - having previously stayed in other establishments in Prince Albert that were good, but not exceptional enough to warrant a return visit. However, Mai's is somewhere we will return to - as soon as we get the opportunity. The rooms - we looked at all of them, but chose the outside... More

Really Mai, we loved it very much. And those cats???? No problem, I don't like them very much, but THEY only like YOU, so no guest will ever... More

My partner and I spent five weeks travelling South Africa during December and January and stayed in many different B&Bs and guesthouses. We are both in agreement that our most memorable and enjoyable stay was at Mai's. We felt welcome from the start and Mai's warm hearted hospitality and attention to quality is what made this stay stand out. The... More

Mai is an excellent host and the rooms are cosy and well appointed. Breakfast was delicious. It is deservedly number one in Prince Albert if you are looking for somewhere quaint and unpretentious to stay with great hospitality. We will be back again.

This is our 3rd stay at Mai's and we just love it! Mai is such a wonderful host and for us she is number 1 in Prince Albert. Her B & B is very comfortable and her breakfast is always excellent, but her great asset is her personality.

What a win to have stayed with Mai in Prince Albert. She's incredibly warm, big-hearted, practical and unpretentious, just like her guesthouse. It's extremely comfortable, and has many lovely luxurious touches (thank you for the extras in the bathroom, and those generous white towels!). It's the only B&B where I have felt totally at ease wandering around in bare feet... More

We were actually quite disappointed after ready all the great reviews. Yes Mai the owner is caring and accommodating and lovely and the B&B fantastically located. The room we stayed in (the room outside at the pool), was well equipped and neat and clean, but the air-con did not work properly and we were quite disappointed with the breakfast. Breakfast... More

We visited Prince Albert in October 2013 and had to find a guesthouse in a hurry after the one we booked into shafted us. Mai was most accommodating and showed us all the rooms and gave us our pick of rooms available. Our room was comfortable and homely and the breakfast more than adequate. We like cats; at the last...
