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...

Read all the previous reviews and believe them. This place is a gem! Slightly quirky but truly wonderful - Africa at its best. Great rooms, good food and the most charming, gracious and lovely staff. We only stayed one night as we were working in Maseru (over the nearby border in Lesotho) and wanted to stop over somewhere before booking... More

Authenticity at its best. If your want to experience South Africa, and in particular the Eastern Free State in its original form, you will make a mistake to pass an opportunity to stay with Nicol and Klaradyn. They are excellent hosts, the accommodation is 5 star and the food is unmatched. The atmosphere here is unique and exudes 'real' hospitality.... More

I have stayed in many guest houses over the years. Our experience as a family definitely places The Station House as number one. The accomodation is fantastic. The beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms extravagant, the complimentary refreshments in the rooms are fantastic. The bathrooms are extravagant in their space and appointment. This is truly the gem of Ladybrand. Meals... More

I can only join in on the previous reviews, especially the one from "Pieter M". Stayed at the Station House in Ladybrand 3rd October 2013 during a bicycle trip in the Free State. The guesthouse is lovely, the rooms decorated very nice, huge shower room and a bathtub with star-view. In the Station Cafe, on the same premises as the... More
