We were 2 couples on a motorcycle trip and stopped for lunch. Very interesting (pretty) premises. The service was perfect, nice ambience, food was great. Highly recommended (and I don't usually rate 5*)

Don't let the cheesy name or route towards fool you; this is by far the best restaurant we've come across in SA. Excellent location, extraordinary service, high quality food all for a low price. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Pleasant weekend stay just close to the Maseru Border and an hour away from Bloemfontein. Definitely value for money. The rooms are all white and have a heavenly feel to them, super comfy bed with extra pillows. Rooms are spacious with a fresh linen smell. My highlight was the menu, ordered a full breakfast which was not only hearty but...

the access to the hotel is a bit "adventurous" on the last 500 meters as the gravel road is not in a good condition. But what a surprise when you enter the hotel area. The hosts gave us a very warm welcome and we felt like being on an enchanted farm. The cosy garden restaurant with its rustic furniture conveys...

I travel to Ladybrand occasionally on business, and the town (like many rural town across SA) is in steep decline. This B&B on the other hand is a surprising oasis of simple style and charm. Driving in one wonders if this is the right place since the area seems like a run down old station? However the welcome is warm...

Perhaps one of the nicest dinners you will have in this region. Restaurant is truly a one of a kind gourmet experience with fresh local ingredients, fine baked goods, and a quaint atmosphere that makes this such a charming place for dinner or lunch. Although it can be a bit chilly on winter nights, the wood burning fireplace makes this...

A absolutely fantastic guesthouse, you would not expect in Ladybrand. The room was huge and the whole place is really special. The breakfast was simply delicious. They even allowed me to use their office for my work, as it was raining outside and the wifi signal was not reaching my room.

The Living Life Guest House is approached by a dirt road full of potholes, and no street lighting, so best to arrive in daylight. Everything is very informal, and the rooms very well appointed, with wifi only available currently sitting outside the office. Food was delightful, and the staff efficient. Don't expect anything to happen fast here, it is all...

Romantic, comfortable, beautiful decor, friendly, excellent food. What a brilliant find. Will definitely stay there again when in the area. A real gem. Much more than we were expecting and very well priced too. Ample parking on the property
