Yes, charming grounds and very pleasant people run this establishment. Good breakfast, accommodating. But, when all is said and done, yuck to the bathroom with black mold/mildew in the shower...hard to overlook this. Terrible shower. Bed is poor, towels minimal. Wifi barely reached our cottage. Decor old style. Bad lighting. Not sure what the options are here, so hard to... More

Dick and Regina are wonderful, friendly hosts, the rooms are clean and well organised and the garden like an oasis in the dry Karoo town. We wouldn't stay anywhere else on our trip, from our home in Tzaneen, to visit family in Cape Town!

Dick and Regina run their guesthouse very efficiently. They greet you when you arrive and provide you with all you should need for a very pleasant stay. Our garden cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast was a good start to the day with cereals, fruit, juices, meats, eggs and bacon, etc. It's a great base in the centre... More

We checked out of our previous accommodation in Prince Albert after having only spent half an hour there (I will cover this in a separate review). Saxe-Coburg Lodge "saved" us from spending a miserable time in Prince Albert..... Our 2 suites were spotlessly clean, and they both had more facilities than we needed to be comfortable. We overlooked the swimming... More

Lovely room set within shady garden with small pool. Hosts are very welcoming. Very high standard all round in fact the best we've stayed at in 2 weeks. Highly recommended. Prince Albert is a beautiful town, an oasis in the landscape.
