“very friendly/helpful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We loved our stay at the Lilac House. The hosts, Susan and Louis, are the best - very friendly and helpful. Gave us many tips on where to eat and places to visit. Place is very unique with lovely gardens and pool. Has safe parking.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

The Lilac Lodge room that we stayed in was very pleasant to the eye and had a great kitchen and underfloor heating. However, the bed was beyond horrific. The bed had two matresses stacked on top of each other, leading to an incredible sagging effect. We didn't sleep very well and woke up with sore necks. If they could resolve this issue then this would be a top pleace to stay.

Lilac Cottage offers B&B as well as self catering accomodation. Friendly hostess and staff and very well looked after cottages and grounds - lovely safe play area for children. Excellent base for a holiday in the Central Drakensburg. There is a restaurant attached - The Purple House, but you need to book in advance.
