Here we do what we love doing best: creating a serene, tranquil and peaceful oasis for the weary traveler. We allow you to take a moment from your travels to relax in complete luxury and comfort.

The weary traveler can enjoy the garden or the guest lounge where they can watch DSTV or just relax in the sunny garden room with braai facilities. The garden also has access to King’s Hill where guests can enjoy scenic walks and explore previous Anglo-Boer War ruins and battlegrounds.

King's Garden Guesthouse Activities:

- Debora Retief Garden - a 250 million-year-old, 33 m fossilised treelies in this garden next to the town hall
- Golf courses - the 18 hole course is the third oldest in South Africa.
- Kerkenberg - the Voortrekkers camped in the area, whilst their leader, Piet Retief, negotiated with the Zulu leader Dingane. After receiving reports of what the Voortrekkers interpreted as successful negotiations Retiefs daughter wrote his name, and the date, which was also his birthday, on the rock where they held a church service.
- Harrismith Museum - a small community museum in the Market Hall at the back of the Harrismith Town Hall.
- Platberg Mountain - the 2 394m flat mountain is Harrismiths landmark. A famous race, claimed by some to be the oughest in South Africa.
- President Brand Park - a picnic area along the tranquil banks of the Wilge River.
- Sterkfontein Dam - the third largest dam in South Africa, and unusual as practically all the water is pumped up the escarpment from KwaZulu-Natal. Built before the Lesotho Highlands water scheme was developed, this was a vital source of water for Gauteng.
- Swinburne - now looking insignificant compared to larger brothers, the second oldest bridge in the Free State, a National Monument, spans the Wilge River. At the official opening in 1884 it was claimed that, as it was the furthest of its kind towards the interior, it marked a distinct advance of the forces of civilization.
- Harrismith Town Hall - a graceful sandstone and brick building built in 1907 and a National Monument.
