My family and I had a very pleasant stay here over easter. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The restaurant is highly recommended with a variety of interesting dishes to order. The atmosphere is very quiet and peaceful.

Awesome spacious rooms with all the amenities. Air con was not working properly and was not fixed despite many promises. Reception staff were obnoxious mostly and not willing to make effort to resolve problem. Dining is great except on weekends.

We had a good time with my colleagues from the University of the Free State (Qwaqwa Campus) and the food was perfect and delicious. I also like the breakfast of pap, spinach and meat (for black people)

Lavender Hill Country Estate offers outstanding views of nature and the lavenders bring great life to the area. Its warmth is a reminder of how great it was to grow up in the Free State. - Great service and warm employees. This is definitely a must stay at place!!
