About Mai's Guest Lodge B&B

Maiís comfortable air-conditioned 19th century home in the tranquil village of Prince Albert, South Africa is an ideal place to sit back and relax. Your hostess, Mai, offers the very best of Irish hospitality in Prince Albert. Cead mile failte - a hundred thousand welcomes.

Accommodation

Mai offers a choice of four comfortable, air-conditioned, spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom-en-suite and DStv, fridge, coffee and tea. One has a double and single bed, two have a queen-sized and a single bed, and there is a family room with a double bed and bunk beds.

Breakfast

Mai serves a hearty breakfast: there's fruit juice, a wide choice of muesli and cereals. The yoghurt and milk come from Gay's Dairy. Jams and preserves are made in the village and the fruit in season comes from the garden or local farms. Mai cooks up a feast of eggs, bacon and extras, toast and tea or coffee to set you up for the day.

RELAX

Maiís Guest Lodge lends itself to relaxing: take a dip in the sparkling pool in its sheltered courtyard, laze on the front verandah or in the cosy lounge. Massage treatments, reiki, facials, manicures and yoga classes are available in the village. Wi-Fi is available.

Attractions & Activities

Prince Albert offers art galleries, craft shops, star-watching with an astronomer, a ghost walk, a local story-teller, a fascinating village Museum, a wide range of architectural styles - including examples of a local gable, two wine cellars, farm visits, 4x4 and hiking trails and day trips into the Swartberg Pass, to Oudtshoorn and the Karoo National Park. Mai can recommend coffee shops and restaurants for teas, light lunches and dinners.

Prince Albert lies some 400km from Cape Town and 200km from the nearest airport in George. Nestling against the Swartberg Mountains, it grew from the farm, Kweekvallei, established in 1762 on the banks of a river whose source is sparkling springs in the Swartberg Mountains. The life-giving water was used to good effect to create an oasis in the otherwise dry Great Karoo. It still runs through the streets in bubbling furrows, nurturing fragrant gardens and adding a gentle murmur to the tranquil streets.

Verified reviewvery good

Arriving in Prince Albert with no booking we were directed to Mai's B&B, what a delightful Irish lady. Mai goes the extra mile to make sure you are welcome. Booking a table at a Restaurant for us, offering us a choice of two different bedrooms We loved her quirky style, the bedroom was very spacious and most important of all, very clean, comfortable bed, aircon and misquito netting at the windows. Breakfast was wonderful, we sat with other guests and chatted. Breakfast was served on beautiful crockery and a beautifully set table. Thank you Mai!

Verified reviewexcellent

Spent 3 nights at Mai's. Novell idea to seat guests together at a long table for breakfast thereby allowing great conversations with persons who would otherwise have remained strangers. The rooms are large and well equipped but should you need to be out and about there is the quaint guest lounge or the front veranda where you can relax and watch the Main road activities from or alternatively you can relax by the pool. So what's special from other B&B's? It is Mai, the proprietor and Prince Albert's larger than life Irish lass, who makes the experience authentic.
