The place was easy to find and well signposted. We had a warm, friendly and helpful greeting from Justin. Our room was clean and a good size with plenty of space for luggage. It had a large bed which was comfortable, together with soft linens. The bathroom was also a good size with toilet, sink, bath and shower. The shower had plenty of hot water and the flow was ok. There was a bit of a leak from the door but nothing major and that was soaked up by the bathmat. Bath towels were large and toiletries also provided. The room had a refrigerator, tea/coffee station, TV, microwave and air conditioning. Wi-fi was available although given the location, it was a bit slow.
Lemoenfontein is an old hunting lodge and our room may have been former stables (not sure) but had been converted well and opened out onto a covered pathway which overlooked the garden. The garden was lovely and there was a swimming pool with sun loungers where we spent the afternoon. There were also marked trails and cycle paths around the ranch, although we did not stay long enough to use.
Views from the breakfast room were spectacular - over the plain - and the mountains were behind us. We had dinner here which was delicious and breakfast which was continental with hot food cooked to order - again very good.
This is a beautiful old place, with large Victorian rooms, wooden floors, lots of paintings and comfortable furnishings. It is a bit rustic but very comfortable, with super views, lovely grounds and friendly staff. One night was too short, so will return.

Terrific staff and very good meals. Fifth visit en route from Jo'burg to Cape Town and still an excellent overnight stop.Wonderful view of the Karoo from the veranda and it is like being at your home from home.

Well trained, helpful staff, high ceilings, beautiful decor, feather pillows & great food. Stunning view over the Karoo from the dining verandah, and a great pool area to relax. Excellent value for money - it beats many, much more expensive, upmarket hotels.

Perfect place to break the trip from JHB to CT or vice versa. Rooms are excellent with modern refurbished cupboards , counter tops, beds and high quality linen, curtains and cushions etc. Nice built in braai attached to each room.Top notch attentive service in the restaurant with expansive views over the karoo.
