“Lancers inn”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

I must admit lancers inn is far better than all the hotels we've slept in in Maseru but if you want to enjoy a good night sleep on weekends, forget it. We checked in on a Friday hoping to get a good rest before our early morning trip to Sterkspruit. I could not believe it when the party/rave nearby went on until the next morning depriving us of any sleep at all.

Tired as we were we embarked on our journey and when we came back that evening, it was on again. I remember asking the security guard at the hotel "is this a weekend thing or just a special occasion?" His answer was "mam it's a weekend thing starting on Thursday".

Luckily my two glasses of wine and lack of sleep from the previous night helped because I could sleep through all of it.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

We had a very comfortable stay at this hotel and found little to complain of. The staff, without exception were very friendly and keen to provide a good service. It's location was convenient (in the centre of town) not far from a shopping mall with a supermarket and liquor store. Our room was very comfortable and clean - looking onto the pool with its own small balcony so there was a place to sit and chill in the sunshine. The restaurant had a selection of dishes, all of which were good quality. If fed up with the menu there were also other restaurants within easy walking distance. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Room Tip: Choose a room (7,8 or 9) that overlook the pool as there is a nice area to sit out.

We stayed in Maseru for two weeks and choosed Lancers Inn for the whole stay. We stayed in a small house of our own, but without any possibilites for making any food of our own. The place is clean, they have a really good restaurant, and the pool is also ok. What we didn´t like was the staff in the reception that didnt know anything about service and being polite. We didn´t met a person from the reception that was friendly... that was really bad!
Good location - very close to city center!

Lancers' Inn provided our group of four business associates with a very comfortable stay. The rooms were of acceptable quality - clean and comfortable. The food proved to be very good - with good variety and quality, which we tested over a full week. Service was pleasant and warm - with lots of smiles to go around. All four of us reflected positively on our stay and would certainly return.

Room Tip: Rondawels were more spacious but rooms 6-8 provide access onto the pool area which would make for pl...

We were a group of four visiting Maseru for a week of work. Lancer's Inn is very central, suitable if you have many places to visit in this charming little city. Many commercial and government offices are within easy walking distance. The rooms vary in size and in comfort, but in general they are well maintained. The restaurant is good and well visited during lunch and evening.

Room Tip: There are three rooms with private exit to the pool.

The hotel is conveniently located in the city centre, around 30 minutes from Maseru airport. The manager is very nice and willing to help, other staff are more "relaxed". If you need something like grocery, items for personal care, a mall is at 5 minutes walking distance. However, for being a 4 stars hotel it needs some improvements. In winter seaso. we didn't have hot water for two days and also one day electricity blackout. The breakfast is ok, but I have experienced much better for that price. In winter season, the igloo rooms are terribly cold, the heating system is not adequate, apart the nice matress heater. Wifi is expensive and not working perfectly.

Very nice hotel after staying in Mokhotlong for three weeks. Stayed in a rondevel and it was lovely, so nice to have a great room with all the conveniences. Breakfast was delicious and convenient location. All staff were very helpful. Shuttle from Inn to airport was late but we did make it in time. Thank you.
