    "We stayed in one of the family rooms and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the pool and the staff were very friendly and keen to help. The pictures online do not do this place justice and it is phenomenal value for money."

  • "One of the best"

    27 October 2015

    "From the moment I arrived, I felt welcome at Bullers Rest Lodge. I had a superb room, with a view overlooking the small town of Ladysmith. At present, the town is experiencing a severe water shortage and there are extended periods without any water available. However, the hosts of the lodge are doing everything possible to mitigate the prevailing conditions. I will certainly be returning to this establishment. (By the way, one of the guests has given a rating of 1; this is an obvious error as his review is as positive as all the other reviews)<br />"

    05 January 2014

  • "Fabulous place"

    06 July 2013

    "This collection of thatched cottages looked like Hobbiton, in Lord of the Rings! Our room was delightful, full of character and charm. The garden setting is very pleasant to wander, and with wonderful views over Ladysmith. There is also an amazing collection of Boer War mementos and artifacts. We wished that we had been able to stay more than one night. Breakfast in the morning was substantial. The only comment is that the wooden floor in cabin 4 is very creaky. It didn't bother us, but it may annoy some. We can really recommend this B & B."

  • "Excellent accomodation"

    05 January 2013

    "We needed a place to stay for one night somewhere halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, we booked at Bullers Rest Lodge based purely on pot luck, and we struck gold! We had a wonderful stay, the food was awesome and when we had to pay the bill, they decided that my daughter ate so little she was free. All we can say is this is an amazing place to stay."

  • "Bullers Rest Lodge!"

    25 February 2009

    "My wife and I stayed three nights at Bullers Rest Lodge in February. It is ideally situated for visiting the battlefields around Ladysmith. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner, Andy, and his daughter, Nicky, and the office staff, Pat and Heather. Heather arranged a guide to take us on a day's tour of the Anglo-Boer War battle sites. What we appreciated the most about Bullers Rest Lodge, was the evening meal. Each evening about six to nine guests sit down to an excellent three course dinner (with wine)- cooked by Nikky. We enjoyed the conversation with the other guests and we were all made to feel part of a family.Bullers Rest Lodge is also a small museum of the Anglo-Boer War. This adds to its charm and interest and Andy is a wealth of information on that war. "
