Had a pleasant stay, friendly staff, a room with elegant modern finishes, and fresh linen. Well done! I would reccommend this guesthouse anyday. Were also going to enjoy breakfast this morning. We only slept for one night and it was definitely worth it, when you come to Lydenburg... stop by and book yourself in.

We enjoyed one night in this fine B&B. The breakfast was very good and the rooms are stylish with some surprising details like huge bathrooms. There is secure covered parking and an outdoor pool (which we did not use)

We stayed with family members in one of the houses down the road which was lovely but no wifi. For wifi you have to travel to the main building... More

We arrived around 7:50 pm when Otto was waiting for us with his cute dogs. Where we came from dogs are not always around and so the our kids freaked out as the dogs got near by and barked. Otto and the rest of the team made feel comfortable and checked the 8 of us very smoothly. Some of us... More

Everything about this place was just awesome. The rooms were really nice, clean and had a modern finish. Complimentary items even included free Wi-Fi, sherry, bubble bath and salts for the Jacuzzi. The food and dessert was divine and elegantly presented in their cosy dining room with a fireplace. The parking was spacious and had shade cloths. Apart from enjoying... More
