Another stay at this delightful guest house - our room was comfortable, tastefully decorated and clean; our breakfast and evening meal was served in what had been a tin shed, carefully prepared and served by the wonderful staff. This is the real Africa at its best - we love this place!!

I wish every B&B were like the Station House! It is a perfect stopover in that part of the country, The rooms are immaculate and very comfortable, breakfast is great, and staff is very, very friendly... Good value for money too.

Rooms are inviting and beautifully decorated. Food is incredible and the atmosphere at the restaurant was very cozy. Staff is very friendly. Cant wait to go back for a spa treatment on our next visit!

What a lovely find! If you find yourself in or near Ladybrand make sure you spend a night here. Our room was amazing, the restaurant and food really outstanding. People are friendly. So even if you are not near Ladybrand, perhaps a detour to this beautiful place will enrich your life. Well done to the Living Life Station crew!

Not only the best place in town, close to the best place in the Free State, Really do love it, I wish I had more reason to come to Ladybrand! Best rooms, best food, best service (the restaurant staff are heros)

No where else in the Eastern Free State have I found such good food & excellent service.. A warm atmosphere welcomes you the moment entering their premises. Veggies grow from the garden & straight to your plate. I keep on going back & every time overwhelmed!

Can highly recommend if you are wanting to spoil yourself. Lovely room and fantastic breakfast. An alternative, bohemian experience with an opportunity to review art, home crafts and support the local people.

I don't normally use B&Bs, but just wasn't keen on a hotel this time. I had fantastic service from my enquiry to check out. Claradyn promised to send me directions and even offered to make dinner bookings at a restaurant in town as my sister and I were going to check in after their kitchen had closed. What a kind...

As we live in Ladybrand going to living life makes you feel somewhere else.. You could sit there all day with your book, no one makes you feel unwanted, the staff pass you by asked you for a top up of your coffee or tea. The food outstanding and just being snug out of town hidden away makes it special...... More

The beauty is in the detail. Living Life maintains a high-end atmosphere amidst comfortable rustic amenities, not far from the Lesotho border. The rooms are spacious and airy and everything is very clean, but what stands out is the presentation of everything from the plates of delicious and beautiful food down to the small treats under a glass bell jar...
