My friends and I enjoyed a fantastic meal. The carvery table was groaning with all the options from salads all the way through to THE most delicious hot sticky pudding I've had in years complete with fresh farm cream. The chef was the most charming man who clearly loves his cooking.

The most frequented place in Himeville. A great stop off on the way to or back from Sani Pass. Cold beer, rugby on the TV and acceptable food and accommodation with loads of history and memorabilia of the old days.

The hotel is very old and is screaming for a major renovation. The only positive issue about the hotel is that the staff is very helpful and the rooms are clean. The rate per night is too high for such an old hotel. The best the Premier hotel group can do is to close the hotel and renovate.

... and I am sure there will be many other choices in area with better food (it ranges from distinctly average to unpleasant), more comfortable accommodation and more attentive staff. Coming from Nottingham Road Hotel the night before this was a disappointing stay. Hopefully it will improve with a renovation.

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 were 4 adults and 3 kids for lunch before heading back home after our holiday at drak gardens. So it helped that we were relaxed. But the service wasnt up to scratch. Not being the fault of our waiter as his badge mentioned he was a student.but he should have been supervised and guided or else how could he...

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...
