“Lovely guesthouse with excellent breakfast”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

A great example of the type of quirky guest houses to be found in SA. The room was very spacious, with one double and two single beds but plenty of room for everyone. The decor was simple with 'antique' furniture matched with old finishing touches, such as an old dressmakers model in the corner, dressed in hat and bead necklace. The bathroom was also very spacious with a great shower.
Breakfasts were excellent - plenty to choose from and the last time I had such beautifully presented hot meal was at a 5 star hotel in Knightsbridge.
Location is perfect - the main shopping area of Ladybrand is a few minutes walk away. And walking is very safe here (and with the state of the roads, the better option unless you have 4 wheel drive!)

We stayed at My Housy for two days in August 2012. The room was very comfortable and spacious, the breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented and the hosts, Christine and Andrew, were right up there with the very best of them anywhere in the world. Highly recommended!

I can find almost nothing to complain about regards My Housy.
The internet connection is not stable....and there are not many
tv channels available......but that's about it.

The rooms are spacious, clean and interestingly decorated. The staff
is very hospitality oriented. The food is good, if a little over-the-top.

The setting is so peaceful I didn't want to leave.

All this in a grimy little decaying Free State village near the Lesotho border.

Reasonably priced, large room, terrible décor and few tv channels but clean. Friendly owner who made a really great omelette for breakfast.

We had the pleasure of staying at My House and experience the wonderful hospitality of our hosts, Andrew and Christine. They gave us some wonderful insights of life in South Africa and we were treated to the best breakfast in the world. Not only was everything fresh and tasted wonderful, but the presentation would rival any 5-star establishment in France. Our next trip to South Africa will undoubtedly include a stay with them. Thanks for a wounderful experience.
