Old English charm nestled below the towering Drakensberg Mountains.

Premier Hotel Himeville Arms is located on the main road of the quaint village of Himeville. With its tree-lined avenues, you will feel at home in no time, thanks to the friendly faces of those living here. Enjoy a short or extended stay with bed and breakfast facilities, in the heart of nature. The hotel is a mere 12km from Premier Resort Sani Pass and 3km from the Himeville airstrip, which provides facilities for private aircraft.


Premier Hotel Himeville Arms opened its doors in 1904 and still reflects its 20th century origins today. The comfortable rooms are furnished featuring modern amenities amongst antique furniture giving it that old time feel of lavish splendour. Backpackers routinely enjoy the old-world charm Premier Hotel Himeville Arms has to offer.


This is the ideal base to explore the Southern Drakensberg and caters for both individual and family travellers alike. It is also a renowned stop over for overnight affordable accommodation, as guests like to spend an evening in the hotel’s historic pub.


The district is renowned for its natural beauty. Guests can enjoy fishing as well as golfing, hiking, horse riding, tennis and bowls at the famous Premier Resort Sani Pass, nearby. The River Glen Cheese Farm is a popular stop for “foodies” looking to explore local cuisine and produce. The tours up the Sani Pass are a must and your guide will regale you with the history of the trails and the pass dating back over 400 years. In Lesotho, visit an authentic Basotho Hut, learn about the Flag language of the huts and see how they live.
