Gasvryheid was puik.

Baie lekker gewees. Die eienaars en hul helpers het regtig die ekstra myl vir ons geloop.

Skoon, gemaklik, alles wat jy nodig het vir 'n nag se oorslaap of langer.

Baie vriendelike verwelkoming. Selfs voor die tyd gebel om te vra hoe laat ons arriveer. Alles was baie skoon en netjies. Ons het net een nag oorgeslaap maar sal definitief volgende keer langer kuier. Baie dankie julle vir julle gasvryheid en die ekstra kamer.

Clean, comfortable, everything you need for a night's sleep or longer.

Very friendly welcome. Even called ahead of time to ask what time we were arriving. Everything was very clean and tidy. We only stayed one night but will definitely visit longer next time. Thank you very much for your hospitality and the extra room.

Rustig.

Dit voel of jy in 'n boomhuis bly. Daar kan wel 'n kombuiswasbakkie in die kothuis wees. WiFi het amper geen sein gehad nie.

Restful.

It feels like you are living in a tree house. There may well be a kitchen sink in the cottage. WiFi had almost no signal.

Baie lekker gebly.

Die kamers is baie oulik. Klein, maar oorgenoeg vir die hoeveelheid mense wat in elke kamer bly. Die diens was net so goed.

Very nice stay.

The rooms are very cute. Small, but ample for the amount of people staying in each room. The service was just as good.

Nie van die beste nie.

Nie een keer die hele naweek warm water gehad nie. Ontbyt soos op website, nie ingesluit nie. Moes nog ekstra uitgawes aangaan vir ontbyt, nadat tarief hoër was as ander gastehuise. Veilige parkering was daar net vir 3 motors, ander voertuie moet buite in straat parkeer.

Not of the best.

Didn't have hot water once all weekend. Breakfast as on website, not included. Had to incur extra expenses for breakfast, after rate was higher than other guesthouses. Secure parking was only available for 3 cars, other vehicles must park outside on the street.

Heerlik gekuier. Vriendelik ontvang.

Ons het 2 aande oornag. Elders gekuier en net daar geslaap. Pragtige plekkie, maar kleinerig as jy saam met ander mense wil kuier daar. Blinkskoon en netjies. Wat van 'n rooibossie ook insluit by die tee en koffie dalk? Die regte melk in die yskassie was 'n wenner !

Had a great time. Friendly welcome.

We stayed 2 nights. Visited elsewhere and slept only there. Beautiful place, but small if you want to hang out with other people there. Sparkling clean and tidy. How about a rooibossie also included in the tea and coffee perhaps? The real milk in the bar fridge was a winner!

Baie mooi eenhede, maar die houtkonstruksie en grasdakke is 'n probleem met klank.

As gevolg van die houtkonstruksie en grasdakke is geraas 'n geweldige probleem. Die geraas van die lugversorgingseenhede is geweldig steurend en dan die mense in die eenheid langsaan het seks gehad dat die hele gebou bewe. Ons het moër opgestaan as wat ons was toe ons gaan slaap het.

Very nice units, but the wooden construction and thatched roofs are a problem with sound.

Due to the wooden construction and thatched roofs, noise is a huge problem. The noise from the air conditioning units is extremely disturbing and then the people in the unit next door have sex that the whole building shakes. We woke up skinnier than we were when we went to bed.

Baie raserig.

EK het in die houtkamers gebly. Boonste vloer as mense rondbeweeg is dit raserig. Die lugversorger raas so jy kan dit nie aan sit en TV kyk gelyk nie, want jy kan niks hoor op die TV nie. Wanneer dit aan en af sit is dit reuse lawaai. Kon nie op die WiFi inkom nie, sein te sleg. Meubels in die kamer is stukkend - tafeltjie waar tas opgesit word se poot is gebreek.

Very noisy.

I stayed in the wooden rooms. Upper floor when people move around it is noisy. The air conditioner is noisy so you can't turn it on and watch TV at the same time because you can't hear anything on the TV. When it turns on and off it makes a huge noise. Couldn't get on the WiFi, signal too bad. Furniture in the room is broken - the leg of the small table where the suitcase is placed is broken.

Goeie dag Jan. Die kamer wat jy opgeneem het was nie kamer 2 wat jy bespreek het nie...nadat jy ingelig is dit is nie jou bespreekte kamer nie, het jy self gekies om daar te bly in die hout eenheid.
Wat tastafeltjie betref..die poot het iemand gebreek maar niemand was bewus daarvan nie.
Dankie dat jy ons inkennis gestel het. Die sein is baie swak in Prieska agv die toring wat herstel word.

Plek is baie mooi.

Ons het 2 kamers bespreek, maar net een ontvang met 2 beddens bo teen dak. Die kamer bo was so warm dat ons die matrasse afgedra het sodat die 2 studente daar kan slaap. Ons het gevra vir 'n kamer met 'n bad, maar net 'n stort ontvang. Ons het vir 2 kamers betaal, maar slegs 1 gesinskamer gekry.

Place is very nice.

We booked 2 rooms, but only received one with 2 beds upstairs on the roof. The room upstairs was so hot that we took the mattresses down so the 2 students could sleep there. We asked for a room with a bath but only received a shower. We paid for 2 rooms but only got 1 family room.

Ek vra onverskoning as daar 'n misverstand was, maar julle het suite 5 bespreek wat 4 gaste kan slaap, en betaal. As julle ontevrede was met aankoms kon ons die probleem daar opgelos het.
