About Lali's Guest House & Tea Garden

Lali's Guest House and Tea Garden, set in a quiet residential area in Harrismith, is a beautiful Victorian house. Built in the early 1940's, with original oregan pine floors and real grandma's charm, it was later on used as a Missionary house for the pastor of the local Dutch Reformed Church.

Situated at the foot of Platberg in the peaceful town of Harrismith, we offer a safe, peaceful and luxurious midway stop between Johannesburg and Durban. Your hosts, mother and daughter team Ria and Riane' van Dyk, will welcome you to their six bedroom, disabled friendly guest house.


All rooms are elegantly furnished and decorated to enhance the ambiance of the house. Each room has its own en-suite bathroom. Tea, coffee, rusks, hairdryers, electric blankets and heaters are provided in every room. TV-channels include M-Net, SABC 1 & 2, E-Tv, sport and movie channels. Three of the rooms open onto our delightful garden, where guests can enjoy something mouth watering and refreshing from our kitchen.

Verified reviewexcellent

I stayed over for one night because I had business in the area. Being in the tourism industry myself I was impressed with the overall look of the guesthouse, there is ample parking space, beautiful wood floors and comfortable beds. Rooms were also very clean, neat and spacious. I was received with a smile and sent home smiling. The hospitality was truly excellent. The breakfast really was out of this world and I thoroughly every morsel on the plate. I now consider myself a friend to the hosts and will always stop here even if it is just to say hello.

Verified reviewvery good

We stayed in the self catering unit, and it was very pleasant. Seperate from the house with its own little gas braai for us to use. The staff were friendly and polite. All in all a wonderful stay, will recommend it to anyone who wishes to visit Harrismith.
