      Just had very bad experience from this establishment after driving 560km to stay at Himeville Arms. Made a booking telephonically at 13h42 spoken to Monique confirming price of R500 per room bed and breakfast included, as well confirmed our special needs ie. Few or no steps and parking close to room will be no problem. On arrival a different price of R690 excluding breakfast was offered and there was absolutely no note of any special arrangement. The lady at reception excuse that she was not told. We asked for duty Manager and was told he his late for work has not arrived! Being in the tourist industry we don't have problem with the price but the principal and was bitterly disappointed, as this was not the 1st time that we have stayed with Himeville Arms, personally and with groups. We believe the Manager Brad will only be on duty tomorrow, we will take this matter further with him. Last point in a very rude way we were asked for copy of or I'd or drivers licence with no explanation why they need to make copies.

    • Pleasantly surprised!

      The Himeville Arms does have a particular charm to it.We spent two nights in one of the suites.. The rooms are a bit dated but clean. But what made up for our stay here was the staff and food. The always friendly chef Brad whips up some amazing fare . The personal touch was that he would come out and talk to the customers . We also had a super friendly and helpful waitress Rosemary which was a bonus. We were greeted with a bottle of champagne in our room which was a nice touch. Definitely stop over for the food.

    • Visit left a bad taste

      Given the hotels history, it should really be the go to place for locals and travellers, unfortunately not though. The hotel is dated, but the prices very reasonable. So if one looks at a rating as a function of price point, it should do well. Whilst the rooms are from the 70s, they are spacious and comfortable let down only by the bathrooms. What was the nail in the coffin, was the service from the bar staff. After waiting for +/- 20 minutes at the bar, I finally asked the waitress why she didnt want to serve me, in a semi empty bar she was somewhat apologetic, but then screwed up the bill. Also heard the people asking for items on the menu, with most unavailable. Whilst the front desk staff were great, I believe they need to re-evaluate whether the staff at the bar are helping the business. Fix up the bathrooms and sort out staff issues and we would come back, otherwise not a chance

    • The end of an area

      The Himeville Arms is an iconic institution. Been there for a 100 years and synonymous with a good English pub atmosphere and good food. How that has changed. We arrived in Himeville and were looking forward to a good pub supper. We arrived. There was no one else there. That should have already said something. The barmaid was just doing a job - nothing welcoming. We ordered a drink, and asked for darts to play on the Board. No darts. No cues for the snooker table. We looked at the menu - where were were informed that half the menu was unavailable. Ok, lets order a bottle of wine. No, we only sell by the glass, and it was mostly Chateau Cardboard ( box wine.) We had one drink and left. We won't plan to stop there again.

    • Himeville Arms Pub. Absolutely sad.

      Reviewed 23 April 2019

      This used to be a regular stop when hiking in the Berg and later, when visiting the area with family. Our visit there on Sunday was dismal. The cold weather, Splashy Fen crowd should have had this place buzzing. But we get there just before lunch as the only family in the pub. No fireplaces were on. Apparently they are all broken. The staff were less than interested in our patronage. The bar last more interested in eating her lunch than serving us. But having traveled for over 40 minutes to get there we had to get some food and drinks. Well that was just as dismal. The choice of beers was pathetic. Just two beers on tap. No craft beers or anything remotely interesting. No vanilla milkshakes for the kids. Seriously. This is a default flavor guys. Service was just as dismal. The wait was long and frustrating. Food was average to say the least. It was a long, tired afternoon there. And the saddest part was remembering the amazing atmosphere that was there just a few years ago, before the hotel sold out to the corporate Premier Hotels Group. If you want to see what a corporate group can do to an iconic venue, just look at the sad state of affairs at Himeville Arms. I really cant see this place surviving. Even after all these years.
