The setting was stunning The bathroom was lovely The staff went out of their way to assist us at all times as well as ensuring we had food when we had not ordered. Would suggest you have a ice maker in the bar so there is ice at all times LOVED our STAY - THANKYOU

A lovely stopover in a very smart part of Ladysmith. The place was beautifully maintained and the most comfortable bed i have ever slept on. Breakfast was delicious and staff friendly and helpful. Can't fault it.

After a day of travelling 800 kilometres we arrived in Ladysmith when it was dark, thank goodness for the excellent signs that directed us right to Bullers lodge. We had pre booked in for dinner, but arriving so late we understood that we may have missed it. We where shattered and the very warm welcome was appreciated. We went to... More

Well located on a hill not far from town centre and close to restaurants and other amenities. Lovely "country" outlook and atmosphere, clean and comfortable room [with en-suite bathroom with shower], desk, TV and other conveniences. Staff very friendly and helpful and breakfast was excellent. Would certainly stay again if business so required.

My wife and I stayed at Bullers Rest for two nights. They were very friendly and the accommodation was fine. Make sure that you get their detailed directions to the place and have a good satnav as it is well outside the centre of Ladysmith and a bit difficult to find. We ate our meals in and it was very...

A great place to stay on business, the rooms are cost and the sundeck is great with stunning views, very historical venue. A great war museum pub and lots of Boer/ English war was antiques. The lodge is situated in a very serene environment.
