We stayed one night en route from Jo'burg to central Drakensberg - wanting to break the journey. A party of three adults (parents plus grandma) and two children, the three upstairs bedrooms served us really well. The beds were very comfortable with attractive bed linen, each room unique but with an Edwardian theme. The whole house is decorated with fascinating antiques and memorabilia, and the garden provides a nice space for a refreshing cup of tea on arrival and stroll. Bea's hospitality was generous, accommodating and discreet. Her affectionate dog - Puzzle - was a real hit with our two young sons! I think the highlight for all of us, however, was probably breakfast - an extraordinary feast, absolutely delicious, elegantly served in a lovely dining room. Thanks very much indeed Bea for a wonderful stopover.…
I stayed with my wife and two children and we all loved the laid back atmosphere of this beautiful house and the ease of which you can get to all the attractions in the Drakensberg. A great couple are Ryk and Bea and we will definitely return on our next visit to this beautiful part of South Africa. John & Marta O'Malley
Ryk & Bea Becker were excellent hosts, very knowledgeable about the social history of the area and most helpful in my searches for local information regarding the Boer War. The house is a beautiful Edwardian villa in lovely gardens in a quiet part of the town. Harrismith itself is very central for sightseeing, near to the Drakensbergs, the military battlefields and well situated for touring the beautiful countryside. A very restful stay - some nice restaurants nearby and all very reasonably priced.
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights as part of our Drakensberg touring holiday.We had a very nice stay at the View Bea and Ryk were very good hosts as were their delightful dogs.I would recommend this B&B. We also had an evening meal with the hosts which we enjoyed.
