Mai and her guesthouse are simply wonderful. A warm welcome, excellent breakfast, friendly and competent staff and the most charming decoration in this beautiful Prince Albert house with a beautiful garden and pool area in the back. The stay nourishes the soul. Always a We'll be back! :-)

From the beginning the one and only Mai made us feel welcome in a little paradise she created for herself. Thanks for letting us be part of it for a day. The breakfast was great and having a cocktail on the stoep was magic.

We had a very nice stay at Mai's Guest Lodge. The rooms were cosy, nicely decorated and clean, Mai was very helpful and gave us a great breakfast in her garden. The location in Prince Albert is excellent.

Spacious and clean room. Bed was very comfortable and there was a nice selection of tea/coffee etc available together with a small fridge in the room. Fantastic shower - really powerful. Mai was a delightful host and the breakfast she provided us was exceptional in terms of quality and presentation. Recommended and would definitely stay there again.

Yes, garden is nice and breakfast was good. However, due some exceptional days at the place some other things were not that smooth. We did not get the room we booked. Our room was really cold (it was just 11degs outdoors). When returning in the evening our keys did not open the door due some extra locking - had to... More

No hair dryer supplied and no plug or mirror so hair drying a little difficult. Bathroom shower curtain too short causing a wet floor which can present a safety hazard for us old folk. Thanks for a great welcome and entertaining banter.
