Aaklig en vuil.

Nee, met aankoms het ons 10 minute gewag vir iemand om die hek oop te maak, nadat ons gebel en die klokkie gelui het. Toe ons in ons kamer kom, is daar waterskade en vuil merke teen die muur. Die kussingslope het nog make-up van die vorige gaste daarop gehad. Nie een enkele kussingsloop was skoon nie. Toe ek besluit om die sloop af te haal, skrik ek eers vir hoe vuil dit was. Daar was geen toiletpapier nie, en geen personeel beskikbaar nie, al is hulle oop tot middernag. Moes maar by 'n ander paartjie 'n rolletjie kry. Koffiebekers was vuil en klein plastieklepels wat lyk asof hulle in jou koffie gaan smelt. Daar is 'n aaklige reuk wat vanuit die badkamer kom, en omdat dit 'n glydeur is, kan mens dit nie toemaak nie. Daar was iets oop op die dak wat gelyk het soos 'n kamera bo die bed. As dit nie was dat ons so laat moes incheck a.g.v. ons vlug nie - het ons iewers anders gaan slaap.

Horrible and dirty.

No, upon arrival we waited 10 minutes for someone to open the gate, after calling and ringing the bell. When we got into our room there was water damage and dirty marks on the wall. The pillowcases still had makeup from the previous guests on them. Not a single pillow case was clean. When I decided to collect the demolition, I was startled at first by how dirty it was. There was no toilet paper, and no staff available, even though they are open until midnight. Had to get a roll from another couple. Coffee cups were dirty and little plastic spoons that look like they're going to melt in your coffee. There is a horrible smell coming from the bathroom, and because it is a sliding door, you cannot close it. There was something open on the roof that looked like a camera above the bed. If it wasn't that we had to check in so late due to we didn't flee - we went to sleep somewhere else.

Die verblyf was nie wat ek verwag het vir die prys nie.

Daar is geen lugreëling in die kamer nie. Ook nie waaiers nie wat dit redelik ongemaklik maak met beurtkrag. Geen yskas nie. Ons moes ons hele wegneemboksiekos weggooi omrede dit vol miere was. Daar is ook geen mikrogolfoond in die kamer nie. Nie eens teelepels nie.

The stay was not what I expected for the price.

There is no air conditioning in the room. Also no fans which makes it pretty awkward with load shedding. No fridge. We had to throw away all our takeaway box food because it was full of ants. There is also no microwave in the room. Not even teaspoons.

Good day Lucy,

Thank you for your feedback. Regarding the linen that wasn't changed during the 4 days, that is not right and we will take it up with the staff that was on duty. We apologise for the inconvenience it may have caused.

We lived in red room. Compared to room next to our room, the one next door was much better quality and layout. Our room felt like a cheaper option even though we paid the same for both.

Rooms need air conditioning and a small fridge with water for when you get thirsty in the evening. Breakfast was delicious. Friendly team. Rooms need some attention, marks on walls, paint coming off. Room's curtain to the outside does not close well, keeps sliding open. Other than that, had a nice stay.

Good Day Charles
Thank you for your feedback.
Hairdryers and gate controls are available from reception. We don't keep it in the rooms anymore as some of the guests are stealing it.
We will investigate the hot water for the room you have stayed in as we haven't had issues with it before.
Thank you for bringing your concerns under our attention and thank you for staying with us.

Die stukkende stoel en lampskerm laat mens dink die plek gaan agteruit en word nie goed bestuur nie.

Not a pleasant experience at all.

The guest lodge itself is very nice but management is a nightmare. We made arrangements that we would arrive at 21:00 because we landed at 20:30. No shuttle service had been offered by the guesthouse so we used an Uber. When we arrived at the address there was a closed gate and we had to drive all around the block coming in from another access gate, not being informed prior to the booking and costing us an additional fee on our Uber. When arriving at the guest lodge, the host was not even available and we had to wait for 30 minutes to get booked in. We were then informed that the electricity is down but on a generator which is understandable, we are dealing with loadshedding all over SA, but then the electricity went off until the next morning after 07:00 it came back for 20 minutes and went off again. We also had no hot water at all during our stay which was so inconvenient especially during winter time so we are very disappointed in our booking with this establishment.

Aerotropolis Guest Lodge 's response

Dear Kobus,

Thank you for your feedback.

We haven't received information from you regarding arrival times or that you will be arriving at O.R. Tambo Airport for us to collect you.

Our receptionist and driver are staying on the premises to be able to accommodate guests arriving late at night.

Unfortunately, our municipality failed us with electricity that specific weekend and we do apologize that you had to experience that. We were also frustrated with the situation and were fighting with them every hour of the day. As you'll know our municipalities are a losing battle and therefor we are slowly converting to renewable energy so we can avoid situations like this.

Our geysers are also working with electricity and unfortunately, that's why there was no hot water. We do understand the disappointment and we do apologize for it, but we also use all feedback and criticism to improve wherever we can to be able to serve our guests at our best.

Kind Regards

Kort aandag.

Met aankoms net voor 15:00 was die motorhek stukkend en eers na die vierde keer wat ek ontvangs laat weet het die hek gaan nie oop nie, het iemand uitgekom om die hek oop te maak. Daar was ook onsekerheid oor ons bespreking en die 1 kamer vir 3 persone het nog nie 'n derde stel handdoeke gehad nie. Die warm water na die eenheid was ook eers later aangeskakel. Die terrein en buitekant van die geboue kort aandag. Kamers was netjies, maar bedlampies en blindings het beter dae geken en blindings kort 'n afstof. DStv-sein is baie onstabiel. Daar was ook glad nie koffie nie en teesakkies lê sommer oop in bakkie. Met ons vertrek was die hek nog steeds nie herstel nie. Dit is duidelik dat die lodge eens op 'n tyd baie goeie standaard gehad het, maar volgens my het die eienaar al voor Covid belangstelling verloor en plek laat agteruitgaan.

Short attention span.

On arrival just before 15:00 the car gate was broken and only after the fourth time I informed reception that the gate would not open, someone came out to open the gate. There was also uncertainty about our reservation and the 1 room for 3 people did not yet have a third set of towels. The hot water to the unit was also not turned on until later. The grounds and exterior of the buildings need attention. Rooms were tidy, but bedside lamps and blinds have seen better days and blinds need a duster. DStv signal is very unstable. There was also no coffee at all and tea bags were lying open in the van. When we left, the gate was still not fixed. It is clear that the lodge once had a very good standard, but in my opinion the owner lost interest even before Covid and let the place deteriorate.

Dankie vir jou terugvoer.

Ons was bewus van die buitemure veral in die parkeerterein wat herstelwerk benodig het. Ons kan met n positiewe gesindheid se laat dit afgehandel is en laat ons Lodge weer netjies vertoon van buite af.

Ons kan ongelukkig nie saam stem met die aantuiging laat ons Lodge al voor Covid afgeskeep is nie. Ons was en is nogsteeds 1 van die top lodges in die omgewing.

Ons is bewus van klein verbeterings wat gedoen moet word en ons werk hard daaraan om dit so spoedig as moontlik te herstel.

Ongelukkig het Covid ons n groot knou gegee. Ons is gelukkig om te se laat die bedryf weer stadig besig is om te herstel en dat ons positief is laat ons Lodge binne die volgende maand weer op n hoë standaard sal bedryf word.

Daar is 3 nuwe werknemers aangestel vanaf 1 April om te sorg laat alles vlot verloop en laat al ons gaste n goeie ervaring sal he.

Die gastehuis is baie netjies en mooi.

Ons was baie tevrede met die kamer, netheid ens., maar daar is etlike probleme wat ons ondervind het: Eerstens neem die GPS jou na 'n hek toe van die sekuriteitsarea, maar jy kan glad nie daar inkom nie en moet jy reg rondom die hele area ry en by die ingangshek van die sekuriteitsarea stuur hulle jou weer na 'n volgende ingang! Ons het gelukkig in die daglig daar aangekom anders sou ons dit nooit gekry het van Pretoria af nie. Ons was toe by 'n funksie en toe ons terugkom en 'n glas wyn in die kamer wou drink was daar geen glase nie! Nie eers vir water nie, en kon ons nie in die kombuis ingaan om glase te kry nie. Toe ons koffie/tee wou maak was daar nie 'n enkele teelepel om die teesakkie uit die beker te haal of om te roer nie.

The guest house is very neat and beautiful.

We were very happy with the room, cleanliness etc., but there are several issues we encountered: First, the GPS takes you to a gate from the security area, but you can't get in at all and have to go around the whole area drive and at the entrance gate of the security area they send you again to another entrance! Luckily we got there in daylight otherwise we would never have found it from Pretoria. We were at a function then and when we came back and wanted to drink a glass of wine in the room there were no glasses! Not even for water, and we couldn't go into the kitchen to get glasses. When we wanted to make coffee/tea there was not a single teaspoon to remove the tea bag from the cup or to stir.

Would not stay there again.

Unprofessional receptionist. The remote for the gate didn't work. The neighbour played his drum set until midnight - could be heard very loudly in the room even with doors and windows closed. No air-con and the mounted fan could not reach the plugs and no extension cord to plug it into.
