This popular hotel, restaurant and cosy pub are situated on the R103 in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands between Mooi River and Nottingham Road, in a craft and tourism route known as the Midlands Meander. The countryside is extremely beautiful with a backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains.
This area enjoys some of the best river and trout fishing in Kwa-Zulu Natal. The property is close to good schools, golf courses, the Drakensberg resorts, and is right on the junction of the new Meerns/Mooi River Dam, which will be completed by 2010, and will be bigger than the well known Midmar Dam. This area therefore attracts a large number of visitors and tourists. The property is also just a one and a half hour drive from the coastal city of Durban.
The historic main building dates back to 1850, and has been carefully restored to retain all its charm. It stands on land which is just over 2 ha in extent.
An attractive entrance hall leads through to a bar with a feature fireplace. The restaurant seats 80 diners, and leads out to a large and attractive patio which seats a further 40 people.
The residents' lounge also has a feature fireplace and attractive sash windows. The well fitted kitchen is tiled with quarry tiles, and includes 2 pantries, walk-in fridges and freezers and a separate scullery area. There is also a kitchen office, liquor store with security gate and staff toilet. There are ladies' and gent's restrooms.
The guest accommodation is typical colonial 1850's style, with high ceilings, wooden floors, Oregon pine windows and doors and large varandahs. There are 3 double en suite guest rooms. Three thatched rondawels and ablution facilities in the grounds of the hotel offer further accommodation.
The manager's flat consists of 2 bedrooms, sunroom/lounge, bathroom with separate toilet and open plan kitchen/dining room.
Outbuildings include garages, storerooms and attractive staff accommodation with ablution facilities. The property includes a borehole and water tanks, and the entire property is fenced with weldmesh.
The total area of land is 2,56 ha in extent, and it lends itself to sub-division, still leaving the hotel on 1,23 ha. The sub-divided properties would be:
Property 1: The hotel buildings and other improvements totaling 810 sqm
on 1,23 ha, and a subdivided portion without improvements measuring 8243 sqm and which also has commercial rights.
Property 2: Unimproved level corner site measuring 2616 sqm with excellent exposure and easy access to R103 (residential)
Property 3: Unimproved level site measuring 1430 sqm with easy access to R103 (residential)
Property 4: Stand of 1000 sqm which has a well constructed brick under iron building measuring 150 sqm, which could be either cottage or shops (consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom with corner bath, separate toilet, large lounge/dining room and varandah).
A current lease on the property generates a monthly income, but this lease is negotiable.
