Ok so left the Drakensberg early on the 9th and tripped through to Harrismith via Bloem with a stop over at Colesberg on route to Cape Town . Due to a turned over pantechnicon i arrived rather late - i called whist waiting for the mess to be cleared up through to the accommodation to advise about the delay -The hostess , Bianca was most accommodating , like it used to be when your patronage was appreciated . Arrived at abbout 6 ish and she was there very pleasant . she then recommended a place to eat up the raod at a place called the DIE Platterlander - sounded like to was from 7de laan - well a lovely warm fire ( remember it was the cold front that was passing over the country as temps at 6 were about 2deg - and an amazing Karoo lamb knuckles meal was served with the old style green beans , sauce , pumpkin Koek etc.... amazing meal for R155.00 , service fantastic . back at the light house the lights were on ( pun) and warm heated bed so slept well - decided to do he breakfast thing for R85 - lovely tuis ontbuit - all in all most enjoyable - i did feel that the 1 night for R600 was a little steep compared to the other available places - perhaps R475 is more where they should aim - the accommodation where i has dinner was gong for R450 for 2 ....just an idea - but accommodation 5 star thanks

    Wow! Awesomeness. The friendliness of the lady who welcomed us. The place has everything a tired traveler needs, warming food, coffee. It is so neat like home away from home. Thank you guys,. I recommend anyone who needs a good rest to book Light house. I'll come back over and over again

    This guest house just gets it right in every respect - cosy and comfortable room and beds, gorgeous bathroom and a fantastic breakfast. Not to mention the fabulous hosts - they really made it feel like home away from home!

    Very comfortable, good service and very well positioned, handy restaurant 100 meters up the street good food and selection of wine.
    Shame about Colesberg itself as of course the local municipality has probably squandered all the funds for upkeep of the roads and infrastructure. despite this the accommodation was excellent

    Thank you for your glowing review, We are happy that you found the accommodation and service to be of value and comfortable.
    And the good news is that our ever helpful municipality have fixed the potholes at the entrance to town and do keep their hands on things in due time.

    Old fashioned setup with a box tv, broken cupboards, no proper bathroom door. The staff were friendly and helpful but definitely not a luxurious accommodation as mentioned and the online pictures do not represent the reality.
