The Bokmakierie Country Lodge is set in tranquil surroundings at the edge of Ladysmith, overlooking the Country Club golf course, acres of barren land, and a variety of wildlife.
The Country Lodge's garden, home and setting is simply stunning. From the moment you enter the driveway, you are immediately enveloped by a world of beauty and tranquility.
The stunning pool beckons to you warmly, while you wonder if the grass is real or fake. Palm trees and green shrubs give the feel of a tropical island, as you look out into the peaceful countryside.
A bar and snacks are also available while you unwind. You can enjoy breakfast in the dining room overlooking the pool, or beside the pool, in comfortable cane loungers.

Very nice place, clean, nice garden and pool, very safe area. Courteous and attentive service by the landlord, as well as the staff. Nice pool, but unfortunately without any long-chairs or sunshade umbrellas. One things we might suggest: we would have appreciated a door between the bathroom (toilet) and the bedroom.

We had a wonderful stay at Bokmakierie. Our room had a beautiful view of the golf course and surrounding hills. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Ladysmith.

An excellent setup. Everything was wonderful and the B&B is situated in a beautiful setting overlooking the golf course. No complaints. Well done to the management.

It was a great setting and the service and rooms were lovely. Only improvement would be inclusion of stand alone shower.
