About Farquhar Lodge

Welcome to Farquhar Lodge Bed and Breakfast, situated in central Ladysmith, close to all the main amenities of the historic town. Our 15 comfortable en-suite rooms are available at affordable tariffs, with each fully-equipped heated room also having air-conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities.

You can relax in front of the TV in the comfort of your own room, scrolling though the selected DStv channels while enjoying refreshments from the fully stocked mini bar. Park your car in the assured safety of the large undercover parking area while enjoying the privacy of the gardens surrounding the rooms.

Breakfast or dinner, at your request, can be enjoyed in our thatched glass-enclosed lapa complete with bar and barbecue facilities overlooking the swimming pool area. Our gymnasium offers you the opportunity to relax your muscles in the infrared sauna, or have a great workout to get rid of all the stress caused by a hard day's work.

The lapa is a perfect venue to host intimate conferences or presentations for small office parties or functions, all to be enjoyed in a relaxing "Out of Africa" atmosphere.

The comfort of the beds could definitely be improved. Thr current beds are definitely out of date. The space could be improved by removing the additional single sleeper in the room. Jus feels too cluttered. There use to be fridges in these rooms but seems they have been removed. Definitely convenient to have a fridge in the room.

Our previous experience was good, but this time we had an old room, not suited for nowadays requirements; but with a 'modern' price... Bad luck

Beautiful setting. Good facilities. Perfect for touring local area, battlefield sites etc. Would definitely go back.

Venue was neat and comfortable. Would have liked a room on ground level since we had a toddler with us, not very safe to walk up stairs with toddler on the hip.
