Simple but cozy chalet accommodation at the top of the Sani Pass—South African run. Great views of the Drakenburg range and the Sani Pass. Inside see old photos of the pass and antique skis. There is a cozy pub billed as the highest pub in Africa. You can buy postcards, pay for a stamp, drop the cards into the mailbox and in about a week ro so someone should bring them to a larger town in Lesotho for mailing. The bar sells other Lesotho knick knacks.
You can choose to have your toilet and bath en suite or to share facilities but if you share you will have to share the toilet with tour groups who arrive at around noon. Facilities are kept clean though. Views are fantastic and the place is eerily quiet once the groups depart. The hotel is full over the weekend but often empty during the week.
The chalet serves home made bread and other Western style comfort food but service is very slow—the tour groups have their guides help in the kitchen to speed things up! Also, the owner won’t send up supplies from Himeville if there aren’t many hotel or group guests (ie during the week) so this impacts food choice. There should soon be an alternative place to get typical, local food being organized by one of the tour group owners who got tired of the slow service.
