Dear Irene 1050 Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the electric blankets, they certainly were welcoming on the bitterly cold and very rainy day that you arrived. It's a pity that we were unsure of your time of arrival as we would have put the aircon on (set on hot!) beforehand. We're sorry you found the room... More

Saxe-Coburg is very well situated and set in a nice garden. The rooms are well appointed and clean. Breakfast is good and the owners very pleasant and helpful. Although it is ideally situated in the Main Street the rooms are set back in the garden and very quiet. All parking is off street. We will definitely recommend Saxe-Coburg.

We had a comfortable stay at this well located guesthouse in the main road through Prince Albert. The owners were very friendly and helpful and our check in was good. The suite was a good size with a separate lounge and kitchen. There are coffee making facilities and a fridge. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. Can recommend... More

Regina and Dick made us most welcome, even to the extent of tea on their stoep with them, much appreciated after the drive down the Swartbeg Pass! The accommodation is clean, neat and tidy with all the amenities we have come to expect from a good quality B&B. Plenty of mossies in the area, use the spray provided, better still,... More

The guesthouse is nice and centrally located. The room we got was spacious and clean. However we did not quite enjoy the atmosphere. The breakfast was disappointing - a simple "how do you like your eggs?" is just not enough of a choice in our humble opinion. Friendly hosts though and nothing to really complain about, it just didn't feel... More

The first impression was not entirely positive. To keep the lawns green and fresh a very special irrigation method has been used: The use of free flowing (or flooding) water! Unfortunately this means you have to pass through the water on the way to the rooms (at least to some of them). Once in the room I found it reasonable... More

Regina and Dick made us feel so welcome. The location of Saxe Coburg is excellent for exploring Prince Albert and the Swartberg Mountain range. The gardens are beautifully kept and the rooms very well appointed, although some of the décor (bathroom) are becoming just a little tired (plus towels are becoming thin). The breakfast on the vine covered patio was... More

Once again our trip to Prince Albert has been wonderful. Staying at Saxe -Coburg Lodge with Regina, Dick and Carmen was, as usual, fantastic. The rooms are beautifully furnished, well appointed and extremely comfortable. Our rooms looked onto the lovely garden and pool. Relaxing under the trees is a pleasure. Oh, not to forget the great breakfasts served on the... More

Dick, Regina and Carmen were warm friendly hosts, the accommodation is centrally located on the main thoroughfare of Prince Albert, although when in the extensive, tranquil garden, the town fades away. The room was clean, well appointed, with extra welcoming touches that make it special over the ordinary. The breakfast was plentiful, Saxe-Coburg might not be the cheapest accommodation in... More
