Excellent value lodging in a stunning setting
I love staying at Thatchings with it beautiful setting (great walking with roaming game), very comfortable accommodation and really excellent service hosted by dedicated couple. A scrumptious breakfast is included providing great value for money and served in a lovely large sunny room overlooking the valley.

Welcome despite late arrival
I arrived later than planned after a dreadful drive due to roadworks and trucks. It was dark and the road was about to become gravel. So I called Thatchings from a petrol station which turned out to be 10 minutes away and asked to be greeted with a G&T. I can't tell you how welcome that was when eventually I arrived. Very friendly and helpful atmosphere.

Nottingham Road Gem
The owner of Thatchings, Trevor, was a great host. He has a great understanding of the area and was very accommodating to ensure I had the best stay possible. The accommodation was pleasant and comfortable, set in the beautiful Midlands with great views surrounding from every angle. Highly recommended.

A Relaxing Interlude
Lovely, if brief, stay in a relaxing, picturesque guest house. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Lovely bird watching and fishing. Hotel close to N3 so convenient for overnight stopover and close to amenities in Nottingham Road. Only fault was lack of hairdryer in room which would have been nice.

Great Midlands Guesthouse
Great guesthouse in the midlands, perfect for a weekend away. We stayed here for a wedding in the area and were really impressed by the excellent service. Thatchings is also quite close to the freeway, so also well suited to break your trip down to Durban.

6/10 Good

Well, the website advertised $46/night and this is the rate i booked at. When i printed the confirmation, this rate appeared as well as language that the rate was 650 ZAR, which included a 325 ZAR deposit. However, the rate I was charged was 650 ZAR ($60) per night, which did not include a refundable deposit and was $16 more than the rate. The owner told me the guesthouse rate was 650 ZAR and that rate wrong. He was indifferent to honoring the price as it wasn't his price. Owner also wanted to charge me penalty bc I was only one person, but he did not. Note, there was no mention of penalty for being single on the summary of this guesthouse. I'm disappointed in the price discrepancy as I had to pay more than expected. I would have stayed somewhere else to where i was visiting if I'd known I'd be charged $60/night versus the advertised $46 as the point of choosing thatchings in the first place was due to the price. The place is about 4km down a dirt road so be cautious when driving muddy conditions. My car slid on the dirt road.
