Regina and Dick made us most welcome, even to the extent of tea on their stoep with them, much appreciated after the drive down the Swartbeg Pass! The accommodation is clean, neat and tidy with all the amenities we have come to expect from a good quality B&B. Plenty of mossies in the area, use the spray provided, better still,... More

The guesthouse is nice and centrally located. The room we got was spacious and clean. However we did not quite enjoy the atmosphere. The breakfast was disappointing - a simple "how do you like your eggs?" is just not enough of a choice in our humble opinion. Friendly hosts though and nothing to really complain about, it just didn't feel... More

Our eighth year of staying on our touring holidays of South Africa and we would never miss out this lovely guesthouse. We had 5 wonderful nights relaxing in our favourite room..The Victoria Room. We always feel that we would like to stay longer! The guesthouse is on the Main Street, but the rooms are in the quiet and peaceful garden... More

The first impression was not entirely positive. To keep the lawns green and fresh a very special irrigation method has been used: The use of free flowing (or flooding) water! Unfortunately this means you have to pass through the water on the way to the rooms (at least to some of them). Once in the room I found it reasonable... More

Regina and Dick made us feel so welcome. The location of Saxe Coburg is excellent for exploring Prince Albert and the Swartberg Mountain range. The gardens are beautifully kept and the rooms very well appointed, although some of the décor (bathroom) are becoming just a little tired (plus towels are becoming thin). The breakfast on the vine covered patio was... More

Once again our trip to Prince Albert has been wonderful. Staying at Saxe -Coburg Lodge with Regina, Dick and Carmen was, as usual, fantastic. The rooms are beautifully furnished, well appointed and extremely comfortable. Our rooms looked onto the lovely garden and pool. Relaxing under the trees is a pleasure. Oh, not to forget the great breakfasts served on the... More

Dick, Regina and Carmen were warm friendly hosts, the accommodation is centrally located on the main thoroughfare of Prince Albert, although when in the extensive, tranquil garden, the town fades away. The room was clean, well appointed, with extra welcoming touches that make it special over the ordinary. The breakfast was plentiful, Saxe-Coburg might not be the cheapest accommodation in... More

We have stayed at Saxe Coburg on numerous occasions. The rooms and suites are spacious and well equipped, the garden and pool are lovely and the owners friendly and helpful. The guest house is in the centre of town and within easy reach of all attractions. I would recommend the red bus tour and the local museum, dairy and The... More

The lodge is situated perfectly in the middle of Prince Albert, surrounded by a beautiful garden, perfect for relaxing. Our room was comfortable with a nice little terrace. Very good breakfast. The hosts are friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend this place.

The rooms were to an incredibly high specification and very clean. Some lovely little touches such as sherry placed in the room to start the evening. The hospitality was superb and nothing was too much - all the staff were incredibly friendly. I would thoroughly recommend the lodge to anyone staying in Prince Albert
