My wife and I were forced to overnight in Harrismith due to a sudden highway closure. We chose De Oude Huize purely based on TripAdvisor ratings and we were not dissapointed. What a wonderful surprise to find such kind people and cozy rooms at a reasonable price. The owners went our of their way for us and our 8-month old baby and funny enough that unplanned night ended up being the most relaxing night of our entire holiday! I've stayed in three other places in Harrismith in my lifetime (another B&B, a large hotel group and a lodge), but from now on I know where I'm going to stay in future. I highly recommend De Oude Huize to anyone looking for a place to stay and relax in Harrismith.
