About Matala

This new modern guest house forms a distinctive landmark in the middle income suburb of Maseru of Ha Matala, about 8 kilometres from the Central Business District, along the Main South 1 Road and entry point to the southern part of Lesotho, in a quiet and tranquil neighbourhood. Matala has an interesting history as one of the villages that was incorporated into greater Maseru.

It is strategically located very close (8 km) from Moshoeshoe 1 international Airport and the main artillery road into the south and central Lesotho. From a vantage view point in the Guest House a sneak view of magnetic maloti Mountains beautifully snow-capped in winter is possible. You will also meet the local Basotho peoples, glad and proud in their Traditional Blankets.
