Mama Fourie's is a fabulous place. The cottages are really comfortable and beautifully decorated with a touch of "old style charm". Cottages have everything you need and even include DSTV and Wi Fi access. The gardens surrounding the cottages are beautifully manicured and show the love that is given to the establishment by the owner Philna. Philna is a real gem who served us breakfast in her dining room which is an old style bus parked in the garden.An experience like no other. To top it all, Philna, presented us with a home baked bread upon our arrival which was simply irresistible. If you are looking for accommodation in the Clarens/Fouriesburg area, look no further than Mama Fouries. We will certainly be back :-)

Two rooms, spotlessly clean, well equipped, clever hardware (enamel potties, bowls, etc!), very comfortable bed, and spacious. Outside braai with shaded table and chairs that are halved galvanised laundry tubs! Breakfast is served round the back in an old bus! This all sounds very odd, and it is; but it works, it's fun and it's charming. Breakfast is excellent too, and plentiful. Lovely hostess, Philna, presented us on arrival with freshly baked, still hot, delicious bread with butter and jam. It was so good we ended up not going out for supper! The car is parked inside your private little gated garden, next to the braai. This is a perfect stop over on the way to/from Lesotho, or between KZN and the WC, or GP and EC, or just for local FS exploring.

We arrived late in the evening on a cold and winters day and was welcomed to a warm and cosy cottage, surprised with a freshly home baked bread! What more can you ask for? The whole weekends stay was just an awesome experience.

The surrounds of the Maluti mountains imbues tranquility and peace which made Mama Fouries a fabulous and beautiful place to rest and relax. Fouriesburg is 30 minutes to Clarens or Ficksburg which makes this spot very central. Mama Fouries was clean, well managed, and decorated with an unusual creative flair. The little touches made this place a home away from home.

What a lovely place to stay en route from Afriski. Our group booked out all 3 cottages. The rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds! The 7 young children with us had a fantastic time. Philna (the owner) went out of her way to provide for one person in our group who was gluten intolerant. We had dinner in the refurbed bus - it might sound strange - but it was such a lovely setting. The food was home cooked and delicious! Service was excellent and we will be back next year. Thank you Philna for making the last night of our trip so special.

For the lovers of a serene and quiet countryside, Mama Fourie’s is definitely a place to be. From the lawn covered driveway, to the warm and hearty welcome, to the beautiful, well equipped, clean and tidy rooms with a country décor, we had a fantastic stay. Service was excellent. The host (Philna) was always available giving us information and suggestions on where and what to visit. The place is very safe and we enjoyed watching the sun rise and set into the mountains. For the lovers of nature and adventure, the scenic mountain views are breath-taking. If you find yourself in or near Fouriesburg, Mama Fourie’s is a place to be. You will not be disappointed.
