Absoluut fantasties.

Dit was 'n baie aangename verblyf. Die eienaar is 'n baie vriendelike en hulpvaardige persoon en help met enige iets wat jy nodig het. Plekkie baie netjies, skoon en gerieflik. Ons het baie veilig daar gevoel. Die bonuspunt was om elke dag na die see te kon kyk. Ons sal beslis weer van die vriendelike personeel gebruik maak.

Absolutely fantastic.

It was a very pleasant stay. The owner is a very friendly and helpful person and helps with anything you need. Place very neat, clean and comfortable. We felt very safe there. The bonus point was being able to look at the sea every day. We will definitely use the friendly staff again.

Well priced accommodation.

We stayed over for a few days at Embo and I really can't complain, the decor is different and the water pressure is low due to the severe drought in the area, but to me it was good value for money and its situated close to the beach.

Verblyf was bevredigend.

Ek dink nie Embo Gastehuis was 3 ster-gehalte nie. Eienaar egter baie behulpsaam. Beddegoed en handdoeke was gereeld skoon gemaak en geruil.

Okay, maar in toekoms as jy vir 4 persone bespreek, moet daar nie gewag word om met koms eers te noem van een kamer wat beskikbaar is nie.

Sou nie weer daar wou bly vir langer as 1 aand nie a.g.v. die eetgeriewe. Andersins was dit wonderlik gewees.

Goeie ontvangs, maar kort nog aandag.

Die man wat my ontvang het was baie vriendelik, maar die plek het nog heelwat tekorte. Daar was geen koffie, geen WiFi en geen DStv nie, slegs SABC 1,2 en 3 wat 'n baie slegte sein het. Nie weer nie dankie.

Embo Guest Villa 's response

1.DSTV is central controlled therefore there is no way that we can have decoder in every room, clients request channels of their choice and simple tuned to. My memory is still faithful to me and none of my clients ever requested for these services.
2. This is the first and last guest to complain about Wi-Fi. When guests get to the guest house they request for a password and are provided with one. Your attention is drawn to the fact that some of our patrons are just sleep overs therefore they do not even need Wi-Fi.
3. If for some reason there was communication break down I am sorry but this is a 3 star graded accommodation next year it will be 4 Star.

Dis 'n netjiese en praktiese plek vir 'n gesin met kinders.

Die plek was baie maklik om te vind. Goeie ligging vir kinders en baie naby aan die see, net 50 m.

Pleasant, comfortable accommodation in convenient location - no security.

Pleasant, comfortable accommodation. Very conveniently located close to highway for easily accessible overnight stop, close to beautiful beach. However, the windows all open directly onto the street, with no security at all. The neighbouring properties all had electric fences or razor wire, so we didn't feel very safe. The proprietors dogs barked incessantly. Otherwise, a very pleasant stay.
