She went out of her way to make us comfortable, even put our beers in the fridge so they'd be cold on our return several days later! For the price you pay, you get comfy beds, a hot shower and such warm, friendly hospitality! Plus you're over the road from an OK, a bottle store and an ATM - and a few blocks from restaurants and a lovely little koppie worth walking up for great sunsets! I will go back to Spes Bona, every single time!"

The rooms are clean & the reception has always been friendly & efficient. My only negative comment is that the bathroom for the room we stayed in appears a little tired & needs to be upgraded with new tiling etc . Otherwise this is a very reasonably priced, clean stop on the N1 Highway."

"Our welcome was warm, friendly and informative and it just got better and better. The room was well appointed and very comfortable and we especially appreciated the fridge and deep freeze facilities which we needed on this particular trip. The secure off street covered parking was excellent and certainly a bonus for our keen cyclist who had taken his bicycle along. We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly go back as well as encourage other travellers to do so. Our dinner at one of the local restaurants was also very good."
