We stayed at this guest house for two nights during April, the hosts were very friendly and hospitable. They are very well informed about interesting places to visit nearby the area. The room itself was nice, it has an old charm to it. The beds were very comfy, hotel quality with clean linen. There is plenty of extra blankets for... More

We stayed at Albizia house B&B for 2 nights and were showered with care by our hosts during our stay.

What an amazing experience! Chris and Meg are such attentive hosts. Chris assisted with our Giants Cup hike. Very knowledgeable and interesting. Breakfast was great. Accommodation is neat and comfortable. Definitely a worthwhile trip.

My wife and I stayed at Albizia House whilst touring the Southern Drakensberg. The owners greeted us on arrival and immediately impressed us with their friendly helpful nature. There is little they don't seem to know about touring the Natal Midlands and the Berg. Knowledge they kindly dispensed with. The room we stay in was clean and comfortable and breakfast... More

My wife was attending a photographic workshop in Himeville and I accompanied her. The first thing to note was just how welcoming and accommodating Meg and Chris were as hosts.

Thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay in Himeville. We were very well treated, very well fed and very comfortable. Chris was an excellent guide on our trip up the Sani Pass, what a driver! If you are asked to sit in the arm chair for breakfast be sure to ask whether you have passed the 'plonk test'.
