“Tremendous Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is the place I'd like to spend every December for the rest of my life. Perhaps the prettiest location in all of southern Africa. Sweeping valley views from beautifully landscaped grounds. The rooms are clean and warm; there is always hot water. Only downside is lights out at 10 so bring flashlights.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

Lesotho is very basic, no places to stop along the way to eat or even to find curios. The people are friendly, but in saying that we had food stolen from the back of the vehicle and the traffic officials are as usual on the take.
However, we went there for the snow and it was BEAUTIFUL, lots of snow and such lovely scenery, the mountains must be beautiful and lush in summer.
Tourism is very much lacking as we went up to the longest single waterfall in "southern Africa', but there were no signs or information- everyone just took a picnic along and sat in the sun looking at this magnificent waterfall and the surrounding mountains.
Saw the Mohale dam, built a snowman, did 4x4 along the mountain roads- had good company and very much enjoyed the long weekend.

Room Tip: They have bungalows and then rooms, if you are doing self-catering and with friends better to go for...
