This place used to be the center of attraction but has become such a sorry place. The single bar man, which we had the luxury of encountering twice, is most likely the most unfriendly person we everen countered. He demanded his cash tip upfront and informed us that he will be closing at least an hour before the official closing...

The second time to visit and especially went back for the curry. Wasn't disapointed! Same standard as the last time. Real good Indian spicy curry, generous portion with rice, popadum and sambals served separately for an affordable price for a change!

Truly a must stay in Himeville. Warm and friendly, set in a tranquil environment. Food was good and home-style. Neat, clean rooms with DSTV in the room and nice size bathroom with a bath. Facilities include restaurant, bar, pool and guest wi-fi.

So we didn't make it up Sani for a Maluti Beer, but we did stop at the Himeville Arms Pub for Lunch. My families food was a little cold and disappointing, but my curry on the other hand was yummy. The pub side of the Himeville Arms is a little run down or old, needs a little make over

We needed something close to Sani Pass. It is an old englush lady, but that gives her character. Clean and good, but you can see that it may need some more renovation in the bathrooms where the taps are worn and shower pipes broken. The hotel offers pub meals and a good breakfast. Worth a stop if you are looking...

We came for the weekend for the Sani Stagger race which obviously brings a ton of visitors to the town...You think they'd be prepared but... 4 of us were seated outside on the Friday afternoon the day before the race. The waiter took our drinks order. Everything was fine. He brought our drinks and disappeared. After 20 minutes we went...

We stayed here for only a night enroute to the coast, and instantly fell for the place! Let me be clear from the start, this is not a modern boutique or city centre hotel. This is a rural hotel oozing charm, with buildings dating back many years, a mix of old and new furniture, and facilities focused on making you...
