We recently had the privilege of a visit from very special guests. Mr JD (Jimmy) Oosthuizen and Heather Oosthuizen (his daughter). Mr JD (Jimmy) Oosthuizen is James Douglas Logan's (junior) step-grandson.
During his stay he shared with us some wonderful stories. Here is the tale of The hand of General Goodenough, written as a letter to his daughter
We’ve been honoured to host many beautiful weddings at Matjiesfontein. Our destination ticks all the boxes: from ceremony and reception to unique and luxurious accommodation as well as Karoo-style food and fine, local wine.

5 out of 5 for tasty hot food
5 out of 5 for piping hot food It is so rare that your main course and Malva pudding are delivered piping hot. The Lamb chops were extremely tasty and made more tasty because they were piping hot. Also served on hot plates. The historical ambience and Pub Piano player really add to a most memorable visit. Highly recommended
Another excellent visit to the Lord Milner Hotel
Step back in time and treat yourself to a visit to this historic hotel. I have visited around once a year for the past decade and always enjoy the friendliness and the history of the buildings and surroundings. The Laird's Arms is one of my favorite pubs anywhere in th world.
Fantastic - Must Visit!
This is a must add to your bucket list. Oom Johnny and the red bus made the trip extra special especially the entertainment he provided in the pub. Super friendly service for ALL staff and excellent food. Thanks for making our Christmas eve supper one to remember.
