                      Sadly, this place was in serious need of lots of TLC. It was like stepping back about 20 years ago. Shabby, no atmosphere, no soul. Thankfully it was only one night. Breakfast was bread rolls with open margarine plastic pot on table, open yoghurt pots and a couple of black bananas. There were slices of rubbery cheese and meats, I was scared to try....I wouldn't stay again or star rate this place....of course, it depends on your budget and personal standards! Sorry everyone 😟

                      Only one night but we felt right at home. It was like visiting good friends.

                      Having spent an excellent week at Lourens River we highly recommend this guesthouse for people wishing to experience a warm and family atmosphere. Thomas and Elke are perfect hosts and are happy to extend the use of the many onsite facilities at guest's own convenience. The guesthouse is ideally situated for local amenities and wider sight seeing trips.
