We stayed in Kerrie Kierrie Room on the Friday night and in Elephant Room on the Sunday night on our way home. I have stayed over in Ladybrand before while travelling on my own but this time needed a "nicer" place as my wife and I were Travelling together. I wasn't expecting what we found. The welcome was great, service really good and the rooms fantastic. The grounds and gardens make you feel like you are anywhere but in Ladybrand, just strolling around in the gardens, taking in the Koi ponds etc. almost something new around each corner.The breakfast could be a little more up-market but it...

Our greeting was great, but the only problem was that we were not given the room that we wanted. On being told that the room we originally wanted was available we were lead to it, only to find it had not been  cleaned with a pair of dirty underpants lying on the floor.We were then offered an upstairs room which was out of the questions for us. Eventually we had to settle for the "green room" In this so called 4 star establishment, we had to ask for cotton linen which we eventually found out they did not have. There was no ice in the fridge, and the shower could best be described as a disaster....

We had an absolutely fabulous stay in the Mohale Room. Our room was very spacious and clean. It was well worth the long wait. The restaurant at the cottage is also a big recommendation for dinner and breakfast.

Things to do in and around Ladybrand

The Mud Studio

(10.2 km from Ladybrand)

A visit to The Mud Studio just outside Ladybrand is a well worth detour to make. Werner and Philippa du Toit are two very talented artists. They have won much international acclaim. The factory shop offers some beautiful pieces to take back home.

Groenkloof 4x4

(32.3 km from Ladybrand)

1 review

Groenkloof 4x4 is in a valley at the foot of Viervoetberg, in the Eastern Free State. The farm offers tracks for quad bikes, mountain bikes and 4x4s. The tracks cross each other but are clearly marked so that nobody gets lost. The 4x4 trail is...

Langesnek Hiking Trail

(57.3 km from Ladybrand)

This trail comprises two day trails suitable for the fit and unfit. One is 11.2 km and the other 10.5 km, with an optional 2 km walk up Pyramid Mountain. There are overnight facilities for 24 people in an old farmhouse, with outbuildings that...

Pony Trekking

(73 km from Ladybrand)

No visit to Lesotho would be complete without a pony trek. It is the transport of choice for most Basotho as the sturdy ponies handle the narrow trails better than any 4X4 can. Pony treks can be arranged in the morning or the afternoon. Beginner...
