Buller’s Rest Lodge

This charming, upmarket, country-style, thatched lodge is situated in the leafy suburbs of Ladysmith, in the heart of the Anglo-Zulu and Anglo-Boer War Battlefields.

We offer spacious, comfortable accommodation, as well as delicious home-cooked meals in a family atmosphere. Relax with a drink in our famous ‘Boer War‘ Pub or on our magnificent sun deck overlooking Ladysmith and watch the sun set over the majestic Drakensberg mountains.


We have 12 comfortable, single and double en-suite rooms, which include two family rooms that sleep two adults and two children. All of the rooms are equipped with the following:

  • Television;
  • DSTV;
  • Heaters;
  • Fan; and
  • Tea/coffee facilities.

We also have a secure parking facility, as well as a safe to store any valuable items.


Our rates include a delicious breakfast served from 06:15am, Monday to Friday, and from 07:30am on weekends.

A scrumptious, home-cooked 2-course meal with a glass of wine is offered for dinner on request Monday to Thursday. Guests are encouraged to sit together for dinner, creating a warm, friendly, family atmosphere and leading to some very interesting and entertaining conversations between guests from all walks of life! We also offer packed lunches on request.


Enjoy a drink in our famous ‘Boer War‘ Pub and lose yourself amongst the many original battlefield artifacts that surround you. The pub has a delightful, quaint wine cellar below it, as well as a small but interesting museum adjacent to it.
