The owners try really hard to make the experience nice. At least the first night. Since I said I wanted to surprise my partner, they organised a welcome with bubbly, chocolate and roses (they only mentioned the rather high price two days later). After that the stay had been marked by the sound of trucks passing on the N3, a... More

We slept over to shorten our trip back to Gauteng from the coast. The service wasn't very good at all. A cleaning lady was the only person on duty when we arrived. She had to phone the owner (at work) because she didn't know about our reservation. The room we got was not what we booked - on their website... More

This was a very strange experience! We arrived at a house with a 'For Sale' sign outside, in an 'ok' suburb, and no one answered the gate bell. We only had the booking agent phone number, but it was after 5pm, so no luck there! Luckily we had phone access to the internet where we got a local contact number.... More

It is difficult to believe the other reviewers stayed at the same guest house. Perhaps our mistake was in selecting the self-catering apartment, which was the same price as the guest house rooms. As another reviewer suggested, the owners do not live on-site and apart from attending to let us in on the Saturday afternoon and process the payment of... More

It seems the house is just for guests (the owner don't leave there) and it needs some maintenance work. What it's important to know is that the rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. In my opinion the price is high if compared to what is offered.

We chose Harrismith as our first stop after landing at Jo-Berg. It is driveable distance to some amazing scenery - Giant's Castle, Golden Gate, Mont Aux Sources, etc. This guest house is lovely. It is in a quiet and safe location off of the N3. Our room was big, clean and well decorated. The bathroom (clean and large) had a... More

We where on pass-trough and Harrismith is conveniently between Johannusburg and Durban. The city is very quiet and we did not look at the neighbourhood. The guesthouse was fabilous, although no swimmingpool, but the hostess was very helpfull and made especially for us a christmas dinner. Big spotless clean room, fresh vegetables from their own garden, and a big kitchen... More
