Accommodation is semi detached cottages with thatched roofs. Clean and spacious with each room having its own character. Swimming pool and lovely very large terrace overlooking Ladysmith and the battlefields of Wagon Hill and Spieon Kop. Also lovely sunset over the Drakenbergs in the distance. The new owners have only been there a short time but have already put their individual mark on the place.
We had the evening meal one night and the three course meal, including unlimited wine, was excellent. All diners sit at a long table and are joined by Paul, the owner. He is a wine connoisseur and, if you show an interest and speak to him nicely, he might take you into his cellar for a tasting.
There is a fully equipped honesty bar, television room even though there is DSTV in all bedrooms, and barbecues for cooking your own meal.
All in all, an excellent place, reasonably priced and highly recommended.
