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 and I stayed here on short notice after a tyre problem forced us to change our plans. Albizia House is a wonderful property in Himeville on an acre of beautiful garden. Chris and Meg, our hosts were very gracious and ensured our overnight stay was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and was preordered the night before. Chris is... More

We stayed for a couple of nights whilst visiting the Sani Pass - Meg and Chris were very welcoming hosts and arranged our Lesotho/Sani Pass tour for us as well as sharing information on other things to do in the area. The rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was tasty and plentiful and the surroundings were really pretty and peaceful.... 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. The photographic workshop started early and we arrived back at Albizia House after the time set for breakfast, but that was no problem and a sumptuous breakfast awaited us. Our... More

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'.

The room was fine , as was the breakfast , the view on the garden etc but what made this extra special was Meg's friendly attitude and especially her going out of her way to get a mobile phone we had left there by accident to us further on our itinerary . Thanks Meg . No dinner available but the... More

We (2) were heading to Golden Gate NP and dropped in at Himeville for a two day stop over without any planning. But with Meg and Chris the obligatory trip to Sani Pass was organised in a minute. Chris was our excellent tour guide, which aside the "touristic topics" gave the opportunity to exchange some more thoughts and views ...... More
