The Ladysmith Country Club is a short drive away, where guests can enjoy bowls, squash, tennis or a round of golf. Ladysmith is located on the banks of KwaZulu-Natal's Klip River. Proclaimed in 1850, it was named after the Spanish wife of Sir Harry Smith. It became a prosperous staging- post for fortune-hunters en route to the Transvaal gold- fields and diamond discoveries at Kimberley. Ladysmith made world headlines at the end of the 19th century when it was besieged for 118 days during the most crucial stage of the Anglo-Boer/South African War. Its historic heritage is its main claim to fame, with many fascinating sites to discover.

The room I stayed in was really clean and comfortable, more of a flatlet, than a room really. Very friendly staff, delicious breakfast. I will stay there again if I return to Ladysmith.
The only (minor) inconvenience was the lack of a two pin plug in the bedroom for charging my phone.

Superb. 5 out of 5

My 3rd visit to Durnsford and equally as enjoyable as previous visits. Neil and his team run a first class operation. From breakfast to dinner nothing is too much to ask. The food has really improved since my last visit and every meal was excellent. An ideal base for visiting the local historical sites and also perfect for single travelers.
