Aaklig!

Met ons aankoms was ons bang om die perseel in te gaan. Dit het geklink asof ons in 'n nagklub ingaan. Ons voertuig wat ons gehuur het was nie veilig nie. Gaste se kinders het oral gepieps. Kamer het na hout en muf geruik. Die kussing en matras het gevoel of jy op ou sweet lê. Dit was walglik. Ek het die volgende oggend in my plakkies gestort. Warm water het gekom en gaan. Daar was eienaardige sakkies langs ons kamer. Jy kon nie in daai wasbakke jou tandeborsel nie. Ons het vir 'n paar aande bespreek maar het net 1 aand daar oorgebly. Ons moes allergex drink vir die gejeuk van 1 nag.

Horrible!

Upon arrival we were afraid to enter the premises. It sounded like we were going into a night club. Our vehicle we rented was not safe. Guests' children were squealing everywhere. Room smelled of wood and mold. The pillow and mattress felt like you were lying on old sweat. It was disgusting. I showered in my pads the next morning. Hot water came and went. There were peculiar bags next to our room. You couldn't brush your teeth in those sinks. We booked for a couple of nights but only stayed 1 night. We had to drink allergex for the itching of 1 night.

Ansteys Beach Self-catering & Backpackers 's response

Hi Chantelle,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy your stay with us. However, we would have appreciated if you could have spoken to us personally during your stay in order to try rectify any of the issues mentioned below. Please see our response to your complaints mentioned in this review as well as the one you sent to the platform directly.

I have interviewed all our staff, personally checked the rooms and communal areas, and gone through our CCTV footage from your stay.

- ‘’Upon arrival we were afraid to enter the premises. It sounded like we were going into a night club. Our vehicle we rented was not safe. Guests' children were squealing everywhere.’’ : At the time of your arrival, Our CCTV footage shows a small group of our guests sitting at a picnic bench, which you chatted to, as well as some children walking around the property. If there is anything specific that made you feel unsafe we would like to investigate and improve on that if need be, as safety is something we take extremely seriously. We pride ourselves on being a family friendly establishment, and as such we mostly had families with young children staying over the festive season. Our property is secure & all our guests cars have to park outside, but it is a safe area and monitored by CCTV. During the festive season our main beach road to enter Ansteys is manned by Police, with a road block to ensure it is safe for everyone, and with residents and guests being issued permits to enter. With regards to the noise, it was New Years eve on the night of your check in, so naturally there would be noise (some from our neighbours and other establishments which is unfortunately out of our control, but is to be expected on NYE).

- ‘’We had to drink allergex for the itching of 1 night’’. You mentioned in your other review the ‘’itching from the couch’’ as well as the ‘kitchen looked terrible & the the living room area couldn't be used’’. I am not sure which you are referring to, as your room did not have a couch, and I did not see you go into any of the communal areas during your stay. There were multiple guests using these facilities at different times, as well as periods of these areas being empty. We would need more specific feedback in order to look into this or to improve on it if need be, as our other guests have not reported any issues.

- ‘’Room smelled of wood and mold. The pillow and mattress felt like you were lying on old sweat. It was disgusting. I showered in my pads the next morning. Hot water came and went.’’. We have various room options available (wooden cabins/ private rooms/ apartments) which all have descriptions and photos on the listing. You booked a wooden cabin for your stay, and as such these cabins naturally smell of wood. Our linen is washed and changed after each guest checks out, and the rooms are thoroughly cleaned. You checked in after-hours on 31 December and left on 1 January. Our housekeeping staff clean the bathrooms throughout the day, and once they have left work it is up to the guests to keep these areas clean, until our staff are back on shift at 7am. We unfortunately cannot take responsibility for other guests throughout that time. You unfortunately did not notify us of any of this during your stay, so we weren’t able to look into or rectify these issues mentioned

You & your partner walked past reception multiple times but never spoke to reception directly. When our receptionist phoned you to ask you to come and sign in (01/01) you did not mention any issues or that you would be leaving early/checking out that day. (We were only aware of your early departure once the platform phoned us a few days later. We were under the assumption that you were still staying with us). You had our reception number, as well as my personal number should you have needed to contact us during your stay.

We take pride that Ansteys is a rustic but clean and family friendly place, and we have many families return many times. We wish you had given us the opportunity to look into these issues during your stay, with the option to possibly move you to an alternate room should you have preferred that.

We always appreciate feedback from guests so that we can ensure to keep our standards up as well as to improve where possible. If there is any constructive feedback, please let me know.

Thank you,
The Ansteys Team (H)

Value for money with great location.

Absolutely loved staying here! This backpackers accommodation is well maintained and is totally value for money. The location is a gem, just right in front of the beach, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Imagine waking up to the beautiful view from the terrace. The rooms are decent and clean. The toilets and showers are common to all guests and are clean. They do provide access to amenities like free WiFi, swimming pool and other recreational facilities like a pool table, TV, etc. They do have a self-catering facility with basic cooking amenities and utensils. At last, the staff there at the reception are very kind and friendly. Ready to assist you at any time of the hour. Really impressed with it.

Fulfilled expectations.

I stayed in the Turtle room at Ansteys for 4 nights over the weekend of 3 October. The room is quite small but as a single traveller basically just needing a place to stay while competing in a triathlon it was sufficient for my needs, as well as being well maintained and clean, with its own small enclosed outside area. Ansteys should be commended for the cleanliness of their well-kept communal bathrooms. The practicality of the Jojo-tank system at the bathrooms is fully understandable, although the occasional whirring of the pump, when in use, could sometimes be heard at night. The friendly and helpful staff were very accommodating and available from early in the morning till late at night. A sense of history combined with a modern touch added to the charm of the place. The deposit payable at check-in was refunded to me within 1 week of checkout. Thanks to the staff and management at Ansteys for an overall enjoyable stay!

Dit was regtig nou nie lekker nie. Dit is nie soos dit op die webtuiste wys nie.

Ek moes in-bel om te kla oor mense wat raas ens. Al wat hul gesê het is, jammer. Die volgende aand was dit maar net weer die selfde. En toe ek daar aankom vra hul my R2100, maar ek het my deposito betaal. Toe moes hul eers gaan kyk het. Hul groet jou nie eers reg nie. Kyk jou so snaaks aan.

The beds were very uncomfortable. The bed's condition is shocking!

I was not given the access code for the gate. WiFi password and no parking was allocated to me. It was tiring to fight and be inconvenienced over parking late at night. Thank God for the emergency numbers that were made available, otherwise I would have been in serious trouble due to staff incompetence. I mean simple administrative work like giving a person the gate access code was overlooked. Maybe make a small pamphlet for tenants with all the necessary codes.

Glad nie happy nie.

Ek moes vir kamer betaal wat ]n aircon het, maar dit werk nie. Het gevra vir afslag a.g.v. dit, maar moes die volle prys betaal. Hulle sou gloterug kom na my toe oor dit, maar niks gehoor nie, want hulle het mos nou hulle geld ek het 'n dag vroeër gery en moes nog steeds vir die ekstra dag betaal.

Not happy at all.

I had to pay for room that has aircon, but it doesn't work. Asked for discount due to it, but had to pay full price. They would come straight back to me about it but hear nothing because they have their money now I drove a day earlier and still had to pay for the extra day.

Fantasties lekker gewees.

Vriendelike diens. Fantastiese plek. Kan mens rustig besig hou as jy nie kan gaan explore nie. Naby alles wat jy nodig het. Ongelukkig was daar 'n paar gaste wat dit vir ander en die personeel onplesierig gemaak het. Maar oral kry mens maar daai mense. Alhoewel ek al reeds my volgende trip soontoe beplan. Mal oor die plek.

Friendly service. Fantastic place. Can you keep busy if you can't go exploring? Close to everything you need. Unfortunately there were a few guests who made it unpleasant for others and the staff. But everywhere you find those people. Although I am already planning my next trip there. Love the place.

First time backpacking with friends.

Accommodation was clean and neat, comfortable pillows and mattresses, value for money. Just extremely hot inside the cabins and the stairs is a challenge especially if you have a lot of luggage. Onsite coffee shop with nice affordable breakfasts. Think backpacking is for the younger generation but it was an experience for all of us.

Beautiful area, but very cramped living space.

It is a beautiful area, but the accommodation was very cramped. The price was really high for such a small, cramped living area. Bathrooms and shower facilities are neat and clean. Nail points sticking through the log house's walls, the construction is not well rounded. Fans in the room did not work.

Gerieflik, netjies and skoon.

Pragtige plekkie, loopafstand na strand. Baie skoon en netjies. Ons was apart van die backpackers-gedeelte so dit was lekker stil waar ons was. Ek dink net hulle kan gerus maar badhanddoeke vir mens beskikbaar stel. Ons het net een aand oorgeslaap ─ was daar vir besigheid ─ en dit sou net so veel meer geriefliker gewees het as daar badhanddoeke was, want dit vat nou soveel meer spasie op in jou tas. Maar verder is dit 'n pragtige plekkie en ek sal dit vir enige iemand kan voorstel.

This review is being shown in its original language.

Comfortable, neat and clean.

Beautiful place, walking distance to beach. Very clean and neat. We were separate from the backpackers section so it was nice and quiet where we were. I just think they could make bath towels available. We only slept there for one night ─ were there for business ─ and it would have been so much more convenient if there were bath towels, because they tend to take up so much more space in your bag. But other than that it is a beautiful place and I would recommend it to anyone.

We enjoyed it so much. We can't wait for next year.

Very friendly staff and assistance. We loved the location and Heidi's cafe is the best restaurant in that area and we tried a few! The only thing I would recommend is washing the shower curtains and add table sinkers to the bottom of the shower curtains as it keeps sticking to you when you shower. If you take it away the floor is soaked, but other than that, this is definitely our go-to place for next year again.

Onvergeetlik, was kort, maar sal beslis weer terugkeer en langer bly.

Die eenheid was netjies en skoon. Die uitsig was ongelooflik en 'n oggend koppie koffie op die balkon het net so veel beter gesmaak met die skool dolfyne wat vroegoggend in die brander baljaar het. Ek sal net aanbeveel dat die plek dalk kyk om meer braaigeriewe te bou, want mens is mos nie altyd lus vir uit eet nie. Alhoewel, die restaurant Blue Dolphin op die strand seker die lekkerste kos maak wat ons nog geëet het.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Unforgettable, was short, but will definitely return and stay longer.

The unit was neat and clean. The view was incredible and a morning cup of coffee on the balcony tasted just that much better with the school of dolphins frolicking in the surf early in the morning. I would only recommend that the place might consider building more braai facilities, because you don't always feel like eating out. Although, the restaurant Blue Dolphin on the beach probably makes the best food we have ever eaten.

People at Ansteys are friendly and the place is quiet.

First of all the place is safe and very accessible. The level of customer care is very high you just feel like you at home and well taken care of and the privacy. For myself, I arrived in Durban late and I was a bit worried and they came to rescue, when I called they answered and assisted me with directions. The next time I will come with my family.

Baie gerieflik en netjies.

Baie lekker gebly, die eenheid is gerieflik en die lugversorger was 'n wenner in die warm weer. Staff baie behulpsaam. Heidi's Cafe op die perseel het ook heerlike ontbyt voorsien teen baie billike pryse. Nie eers 100 m van die strand af nie en kan sommer loop. Sal definitief kan aanbeveel en sal weer daar kom bly as weer Durban toe gaan, want is nog steeds naby genoeg aan Durban self.

Very comfortable and neat.

Very nice stay, the unit is comfortable and the air conditioner was a winner in the hot weather. Staff very helpful. Heidi's Cafe on site also provided delicious breakfast at very reasonable prices. Not even 100 m from the beach and can just walk. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again if going to Durban again, as it is still close enough to Durban itself.

Good place to relax.

It's ideally located as you just walk to the beach. No stress of parking hunting. Lack of DStv was a bit of disappointment though.

Ons het dit baie geniet.

Ek wil net dankie sê vir die goeie diens wat ontvang is. Parkering is maar bietjie min, maar die ontvangspersoon het gesorg dat ons binne parkering kry en ons so geakkommodeer. Die woonstelletjie is pragtig en ons het lekker gemaklik gebly.

We enjoyed it very much.

I just want to say thank you for the good service received. Parking is a bit scarce, but the receptionist made sure we got parking inside and accommodated us that way. The apartment is beautiful and we had a very comfortable stay.

Enjoyed our stay

We enjoyed our stay as it is situated at the beach front with an amazing sea view & so refreshing. A perfect holiday destination indeed. Just a few things though that we wish you had mentioned before our arrival: It is a bit inconvenient staying here without a car because the shops/restaurants are quite far (not within walking distance). There are no ATM's in the surroundings & there are extra charges if you make use of the swipe machine. Lastly, the restrooms are shared. Otherwise all was good. Thank you.
