Our nest is now in Harrismith
We also drove pass Harrismith and decided to enter the town. we found it charming and delightfull. We moved to Harrismith on impulse. To everyone complaining about our town - do yourself a favor and plan your time better we cannot sit and wait for one customer - whom is going to be unhappy with everything we offer. We love our new home, the charm and the freedom that we have to come and go as we pleases.
What's to say?
I stayed for a night in Harrismith. It was Sunday. The Motel was not serving food! Went into town. Nothing other than the worst sort of quasi-American fast food rubbish. Service equally rubbish.So what's to review? Harrismith is best viewed from a fast motor; just don't look again until you are several miles away.I would prefer to press star-rating zero, but as that won't be accepted I will give it (reluctantly) one star.
A chip and a putt outside Johannesburg and you feel as if you've been out the city for a week already. I planned a last minute weekend to the area and wished I had booked for a fornight. A delightful little place carved out of the hills - where the air is fresh and crisp and everything seems clean out there. We hiked in the berg, boated on the dam and ate gorgeous trout, shopped at local shops for goodies and have unrivalled hospitality. When looking for a break, don't overlook Harrismith as a destination - it is a lot more than the toasted sarmie and coffee break at the Wimpy en route to Durb...see more
Harrismith is certainly not a holiday destination but it is an ideal overnight stopover to break a long car trip or else, as the previous reviewer states, a good place to stock up on groceries for self catering holidays. If you need a delicious and very reasonably priced lunch (served with a smile) after your shopping stop at Pick and Pay, drive a little further up the road and try La Moree. Perfect for a casual supper too. Regarding overnight accommodation, skip the impersonal hotels and look at the top rated lodges and B and B's. Our personal favourite is De Oude Huize.
Nice place for a stop-over
My wife and I were travelling down to KZN (from Gauteng) and selected Harrismith as our halfway stopover. We selected a guest house prior to departing and found it quite easily. We travelled through the town centre and was somewhat appalled by the condition some of the roads in town were in (potholes etc.). The streets were generally 'clean'; however, you would find some areas in town that had refuge and waste lying next to the road, as with most places, unfortunately.We spent the night at the guest house and decided to dine out for the evening. The owners of the guesthouse we were staying at...see more
