This was our stay over place for 1 night, and it was perfect. The cleanliness and the comfort of the rooms (we had 2 rooms, party of 6ppl) was second to none. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding, never eaten such a good breakfast even in posh London hotels . Mai and her maids are brilliant

My recommendation is if you are...

This has to be one of the highlights of our journey through South Africa. Mai is a one off. One of the world's happiest and friendliest humans. Her breakfast is simply stunning. Each room is special, spacious and comfortable. TV is great. Wi fi can be occasionally "iffy" but generally fine. If you go to visit this place purely for...

What a fabulous and warm hostess. Thank you Mai for the lively, fun chats, your willingness to help with dinner bookings and your knowledge of the town and area. A most delightful stay, excellent breakfast, lovely room with outside patio near pool. We will be back and will definitely stay at Mai's.

Mai's is a beautiful B & B from the outside to the rooms to the warmth of the owner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the breakfast, which was included in the price was superb. We would definitely stay there again.

We would definitely recommend a stay at Mai’s B&B, having recently stayed there on our trip home from the Cape - the rooms are homely, cheerful and well-equipped, and the guesthouse is very family-orientated. The sparkling pool is also a welcome treat after a hot day in the Karoo! Mai was the perfect, warm-and-friendly hostess, offering tips of things to...

We really enjoyed our stay at Mais. The hostess is extremely welcoming and the accommodation is very comfortable. Breakfast is freshly prepared each morning and was delicious. We enjoyed the pool and in mid summer, the airconditioning is a welcome plus.

Apart from a great bed and breakfast, Mai's a good place to stay as she helps out in advicing, phoning around and making sure you have what you need. She knows a lot of people in town and keeps on calling till she gets the information you need. Her garden and veranda are great to relax in between all activities.
