The lodgings are basic but comfortable and clean; as this is in rural Lesotho, one shouldn't have high expectations. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the panoramic view from the bedroom looking out on the dam; this alone makes up for any shortcomings. The staff (and all the people in Lesotho!) are such warm and friendly people and were always ready with a smile; the service was very satisfactory at all times. The manager spend not only the obligatory minute at our table but actually showed us his lovely indigenous rock garden outside the dining room; his enthusiasm about the country and its people was really touching. We had a dinner-bed-breakfast package and I can still not believe the variety the kitchen had on offer; at dinner the salmon trout was a real treat with very generous portions indeed. The breakfast boasted a good variety of fruits, yoghurt, cereals, cold meats and cheeses; add to that the farmhouse style warm dishes and excellent coffee and you're set for the road. There are no filling stations in Katse which necessitates careful planning.
