Certificate of Excellence

Lovely accommodation, Fridley staff and delicious food. I will go back to stay there with my family. There is a beautiful view on the deck looking over ladysmith - great way to unwind after a busy day.
Buller's Rest Guest House is in close proximity to many shops and easily accessible.

My sister and husband came over from America to stay for a few weeks, and as I live in the Free States I needed to find a great place to take them to safari. We stayed here and went on day game drives at the Nambiti Game Reserve, which was much more affordable than staying at one of the lodges in Nambiti. Buller's Rest was friendly, clean, affordable and great quality. Would definitely visit again.

Bullers check in is efficient.
The rooms are clean and offer all necessary amenities.
The atmosphere is friendly.
Be sure not to miss the dinner where you are able to interact with other guests from all countries, professions etc, while having a glass of wine and great food.

We had a warm and cozy stay, the room was lovely, with a view over the town below, your service was excellent and the food was very good! The Wi-Fi was a bonus, so business could go on.
We would gladly refer other guest to your lodge!
Thank you very much for a lovely stay!

Nice clean rooms in a great location. The staff were friendly and helpful, the service and breakfast was very good. The Bar/ pub was a nice addition for visitors to the Lodge. For Sunday evening make plans early for dinner, as most places are closed.

So glad you had a good stay ! And thanks for the tip for other travelers regarding Sunday nights and eating out in Ladysmith. Very few places are open then, which is why we provide meals on a Sunday evening. However, it's essential to pre book.
