My husband, his sister, myself and a friend stayed at Mai's B and B last week. Mai was so friendly and helpful with honest restaurant recommendations and things to do while in Prince Albert. Mai was always available for a chat! We also enjoyed her cats and the large breakfast every morning. Mai even sent us with a bottle of... More

As Karoo towns go, Prince Albert is right up there with the best of them. It is clean, the old buildings have been preserved and restored, and it is small enough so that you are in walking distance of almost everything. The food culture is obvious when you take in all the restaurants, eateries and food shops. If you really... More

We over-nighted in Prince Albert with our family and stayed in Mai's Guest Lodge. On arrival we received a lovely warm welcome from Mai. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy with a homely comfortable feel and beautifully decorated. We sat outside for breakfast - the food was delicious and hearty. Certainly would stay again. I left my iPod... More

On arrival, we were welcomed by Mai and immediately felt at home - like we're visiting our favourite aunt. We had a wonderful spacious room with everything we could need - amazing bed linen and a superb shower (I am quite fussy about showers). Every morning we received a hearty breakfast and were privileged to enjoy it under the beautiful... More

We loved Mai's guest house! Situated in the main street of beautiful, isolated Prince Albert, it is a little gem. Seen from the outside it is extremely pretty, with flowers and pretty furniture on the stoep. There is even an open window with a cushion on for the cat to sleep on or watch the world go by. In security-conscious... More

I stayed at Mai's for 4 nights over New Year - such a lovely spot perfectly positioned so you don't have to get into your car again. The room was comfortable but is starting to look a little tired. The swimming pool was certainly appreciated as the temperatures soared as was the air conditioner, although the bed below it might... More

We received a Hartly welcome, good humor and all very organized, the lodge works well and all things are close at hand. Mai is a charm and a blessing, lots of good energy and assistance. Rooms are spacious, well equipped, but bed could be a little firmer and larger. Breakfast was awesome and most enjoyable

Mai's Guest Lodge is a lovely B & B in the main street of Prince Albert, which is a must stop, if you are on your way to Cape Town via the Karoo. Mai, is this bubbly warm Irish lady, who makes sure you have the best stay at her place. The rooms are very comfortable, in summer or winter,... More

Our family stayed just one night in the very well appointed family room. The kids loved the idea of the bunkbed. As mentioned in the other postings, the sucess of the place is really due to the larger than life hostess, Mai. All round the fascilities were excellent and we would be back en route to the coast.

Quaint, lovely accommodation. Clean and tidy. Wonderful hostess. Heavenly breakfast and a much needed dip in the pool! Don't miss the dairy in town and the swartberg pass... A perfect place to be romanced!
