Bruce has thought of everything to make your stay pleasant even giving advice on where the best place is to have dinner. Comfortably beds, big shower with plenty of hot water, coffee available (anytime) . Overall a pleasant stay.

Great spot to start our trip through Lesotho. The views of the valley were splendid. A little chilly in the morning but the staff lit the fireplace and we enjoyed a self catered breakfast. There was a limited range of eateries in town, but each one had complete menus and decent selections of wine and beer.

Quiet, peaceful and clean with all the necessary basics. Tea and coffee with fresh milk was great. Access after hours was challenging in the dark. Outside lighting would have helped. Parking is adequate and secure.

We stayed 2 nights for a drive up the Sani Pass for which Bruce made our reservations. He was very helpful with his recommendations for dinner as well. The rooms are large with good bathrooms, too. Only place we stayed that had wash cloths! (We always take our own). Breakfast was cooked to order each morning. WiFi was not very good but it is a remote area in the mountains.

We arrived in Himeville and found Albizia House very easily, and the hosts were so welcoming we felt right at home. The rooms are very comfortable and relaxing, the bathrooms are excellent with a nice spacious shower and plenty of steaming hot water. The gardens are beautiful and the smell of the flowers and freshly mown grass makes you want to stay longer. We stayed for two nights and Bruce organised for a local tour company to take us up Sani Pass to Lesotho and the highest pub in Africa. The tour company (Major Adventures) were excellent and we had a great day, with our guide Elias keeping us thoroughly entertained on the journey. The drive is pretty rough and we were pleased to leave our car behind and let someone else do the driving. It was well worth it and we would highly recommend the excursion. Breakfasts at Albizia were excellent and our hosts were great conversationalists, we would have liked to stay for longer. We cannot recommend these lodgings highly enough, we loved every minute.

Bruce and his parents, Rob and Irma were excellent hosts. They were very helpful, arranging a SaniPass tour and dinner reservations for us. The bed and pillows were comfy, the room was quiet, water pressure was strong, gardens were beautiful and the breakfast was nice. I would definitely recommend.

Stayed here for a night after driving sani pass. The owners were fabulous, very friendly and made you feel at home. Room had its own entrance from the porch and was comfortable with two single beds, bathroom large with bath and shower. Sat on the porch outside room bird watching and chatting to Bruce and rob who were lovely people. Had breakfast on the porch on a lovely morning, breakfast was very nice, lots of fresh fruit and cooked breakfast. Would highly recommend
