“Oak Lane B&B”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

We recently spent a night at the above B&B in Maclear on our way back from a week's visit in The Drakensberg. We booked in for dinner, bed and breakfast before heading off on our trip home.

We received a nice, friendly welcome and the dinner and breakfast was very pleasant. However our accommodation left a lot to be desired. We were housed in another building up the garden which comprised a bedroom and ensuite. The entry door went straight into the bedroom - however there was NO window whatsoever in the bedroom and the only natural light came from a narrow panel or two of yellow frosted glass in the door. The room was very small comprising a small double bed and bedside tables either side and then perhaps another 18" more space each side. It was slightly longer in length and included tea/coffee making facilities, microwave and fridge. There was a lovely dish of fresh fruit and an abundant supply of cookies, etc. which was nice.

The bathroom was plenty large enough in size housing a small wardrobe (no room in the bedroom for this!), a shower which we found had to be handheld to be of any use and very difficult to get the hot/cold right, a toilet and washbasin. Unfortunately the hot water here came out of the cold water tap and vice-versa so nearly burnt my mouth when cleaning teeth. There were two mirrors in the bathroom - none in the bedroom - obviously no power supply in the bathroom and consequently an impossibility to use a hairdryer and use a mirror at the same time!

Unfortunately with the lack of a window in the bedroom claustrophobia set in - result very little sleep! It felt very prison-like.

Now we have seen pictures of other accommodation in the B&B which looked very nice. We appeared to be the only guests there so perhaps we might have been better accommodated!
