"Just fabulous"

Lexden is probably the best guesthouse that we visit. We literally travel the whole country and Lexden is most certainly our favourite stay. Everything is just perfect and the staff very friendly and professional.

"A home away from home"

I’ve been staying at the Lexden fairly regularly since May for several nights at a time. Karrin is an excellent host and the rooms are really comfortable and tastefully decorated. It really feels like a home away from home when I’m in Pietermaritzburg.
