We have been staying over at the Green Lantern Inn for many years. The hotel recently changed owners and has been refurbished - very nice! The hotel has a long and rich history and the owners respect this. The atmosphere has always been, and still is, very relaxed. The communal lounge is very comfortably old-fashioned, with black and white silent comedy movies playing on the big screen (the projection room is still there, but modern technology is now used). The feeling is very homey, with a very friendly dog and cat in attendance. The dining room and pub are cozy with a fire burning is the hearth. Dinner was excellent, as always. The refurbished rooms are comfortable, with electric blankets and heaters supplied, as it can get very cold at the top of the Drakensberg. There are coffee/tea making facilities in each room and fresh milk is supplied to the guests after dinner. Soap and shampoo are supplied, but no hairdryer. The parking area is a fenced area with a locked gate next to the hotel, but not undercover. The only problem I found was that the shower door in our bathroom did not seal properly, so the floor got very wet. We had a lovely stay and we look forward to staying there many more times.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Conveniently situated half way between Johannesburg and Durban, this historic hotel has a unique character and is an experience all on its own. This is the ideal location to break your journey, and to this day it remains a favourite overnight stopover for travellers and sportsmen on their way to and from the coast. Pop in for a drink, a "tea & cake" experience in our magnificent gardens, authentic country cooking, or settle in for the night in one of the warm, cosy, queen bedded en-suite rooms. ... more less
