Beautiful place and rooms are comfortable and spotless! An ekstra is the nice pool to cool off on hot days. There is a fridge, kettle and tv in the rooms. Close to all the restaurant. Wonderful host that will make all the local arrangements and bookings for dinner.

Céað míle fáilte. A hundred thousand welcomes. These Gaelic words of welcome said it all. They were a perfect reflection of the level of services and only surpassed by the hospitality offered by the hostess!

What a treat this stay was! The location could not be more central. The room was spacious and well-appointed, en-suite, and contained a small refrigerator (perfect for wine!). Mai is a delightful host, friendly, entertaining, and attentive to one's every need. The excellent breakfast is served outside in the courtyard, not far from the pool, which provided a welcome cooling-off...

Visiting Prince Albert without staying at Mai's would be daft. Mai looks after your every need with aplomb, great breakfasts & huge character. Mai's is really easy to find, right in the middle of town with bars & restaurants all round, but quiet, peaceful & comfortable. Hugely recommended.

We would recommend Mai's guest lodge to anyone looking for a truly comfortable and immaculate place to stay. Rooms well equipped with quality linen and everything else one could wish for. Mai and her staff could not have made us feel more welcome. Breakfast out of this world. This was our second visit and certainly won't be our last.

Booked two nights in this wonderful place and were not disappointed. Mai was a wonderful, fun loving hostess who made us extremely welcome. The room was very comfortable with easy access to the swimming pool area. The breakfasts were truly amazing, the best of our holiday.

Mai is an excellent host. Most helpful and kind. Very envious of the gorgeous linen tablecloths and bed clothes she uses they certainly enhanced the excellent breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble for Mai and she was most helpful in suggesting trips in Prince Albert and to further our journey.

This was our stay over place for 1 night, and it was perfect. The cleanliness and the comfort of the rooms (we had 2 rooms, party of 6ppl) was second to none. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding, never eaten such a good breakfast even in posh London hotels . Mai and her maids are brilliant

I travel to Prince Albert on Business a lot amongst other towns and cities in South Africa. Mai's Guest House is my favorite home away from home. Mai is always welcoming with warm Irish hospitality and the high standards of comfort the guest house offers. Breakfast is awesome and attention to detail is great. My recommendation is if you are...
