About Cockney Liz Hotel
Cockney Liz Hotel is situated in the historic mining town of Barberton, with its breathtaking view of the Makhonjwa Mountains. The Cockney Liz provides comfortable overnight accommodation in clean rooms with en-suite bathrooms, and is situated in town so the lively buzz of this lovely little town can be experienced first-hand.
Barberton is a by-product of the hills, a relic of fleeting gold fever. Once the ‘Gem of the Lowveld’, the town now rests in the supporting arms of the beautiful Makhonjwa Mountains. There are Heritage Walk signposts around town and a number of hiking trails in the hills behind.
A slow stroll from the town centre will take you into a gentle wooded ravine where you can see purple crested turaco, Knysna turaco and narina trogon. Another walk includes a kilometre-long tunnel used in the old days to move ore from a mine to a long vanished crusher. This is a destination you can make your own. Relax in the gentle serenity of the area, or thrill to the wild exuberance of the pioneering spirit as you explore on foot, by mountain bike or 4x4. Experience the wonder of this most ancient geology and its associated botanical richness, or play a gentle round of golf or game of bowls in the velvet air.
Our clean rooms provide comfortable overnight accommodation to corporate travellers, tourists, adventure-seekers and many more. The rooms are equipped with a TV with local channels and a tea and coffee station for the early birds. Secure parking is also provided.
Within a 12 km radius of the town you can reach half a dozen nature and wildlife reserves; inside an hour, through Malelane, you can be in the Kruger National Park. In two hours by road you can reach either Maputo or Mbabane, the capitals of neighbouring Mozambique and Swaziland.
