Mai's place was recommended to me and I certainly did not regret staying there. Mai contacted me beforehand to tell me she would not be there, but here friend Ana Maria was there to take care of everything. She was really nice and I enjoyed the spacious room and the great breakfast.

Mai's is a treat and Mai is a treat. They are both to be found right in the middle of town, within walking distance of everything. Not exaggerating...Mai doesn't even drive, But she'll tell you where everything is and even direct you to the secret restaurant that's the pride of Prince Albert. Large pleasant rooms, clean as a whistle and...

A well situated B & B for a walk around the town. Mai made us very welcome and is a mine of information. A substantial breakfast, freshly prepared. Bed very comfortable, but the bedside lighting could be improved. The only negative was the bathroom - a drainage problem that persisted through 2 days.

Lovely place to stay in Prince Albert! Mai is very friendly, the beds were wonderfully comfortable, and the place is very close to restaurants and shops. Breakfast in the morning was freshly prepared for us and very nice. Mai has excellent recommendations for things to do in the area

The rooms are very spacious and clean. Mai is an absolute delightful host who couldn't do more for us. She is very knowledgeable about the area and served the most delicious breakfast. The B&B is situated right next door to a restaurant which we found most convenient.

Mai's is a funky, fun B&B typically found in South African dorps (villages). Mai is a charming hostess with lots of good advice on activities and restaurants. Breakfast is wholesome and filling. Great location for exploring the village. Definitely worth a retrn visit.
