Room 7 | THE POLO ROOM

A grand sandstone house, dating from the late 1800s, has been beautifully restored and expanded to a modern guest house. Rooms have all been uniquely finished. Various accommodation options are available for single guests, couples, families and groups. Dinner, bed and breakfast or self-catering, the latter available in one unit. Our en suite rooms boast fire places for red or glühwein winter’s evenings.

THE POLO ROOM is named after our love for the game. Interestingly enough, both the family's who owned IMLA were and are still polo enthusiasts. The Radloff family as well as the Groenewald family.

Polo used to be a very popular game in the Eastern Free State especially among farmers with clubs in various towns. Unfortunately, due to urbanization and the mass movement of people to cities as well as the unstable economy, lots of people were forced to give up the beautiful game of polo. Currently, there are very few clubs that still exist in the area, including Sparta Beef. If you are lucky, you might just find the boys playing a game of POLO on a Saturday morning at IMLA.
