Slegs oornag tydens lang reis, was voldoende vir ons behoeftes.

Fasiliteite was slegs gebruik om te oornag. Was aangenaam en gasvrou baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Rustige, stil omgewing. Geen TV of mikrogolf, maar ons het dit nie nodig gehad nie. Het baie lekker gebly.

Gerieflik, netjies, basiese geriewe (koffie, tee, suiker, melk). Die houer met handewasseep het nie gewerk nie.

Duvet van dons is wel heerlik warm, maar daar is nie 'n alternatief vir persone met allergieë (vir dons en vere) nie.

Waarde vir geld.

Hoogs aanbeveel. Mare en haar dogter het ons bederf met braaibroodjies, tjoppies, wors, hoendersosaties en 'n pastaslaai vir ons braai. Die kamer is pragtig skoon en daar is 'n gemeenskaplike TV-kamer en kombuis. Die kroegie werk op 'n eerlikheidsbasis. Vat jou drankie en skryf dit neer in die boek. Baie lekker gekuier.

'n Gerieflike oornagpunt op die N1 Kaapstad-Pretoria.

Ons was 'n groep van 4 volwassenes, 3 kinders, 3 kleinerige honde, 3 sleepvoertuie en 3 sleepwaens en het in 2 chalets oornag. Joalani was bereid om ons te akkommodeer. Joalani is naby die N1 geleë, maar was ver genoeg dat die verkeer ons glad nie gepla het nie. Ons het Joalani baie gerieflik gevind met groot genoeg ruimte om met die voertuie en sleepwaens te draai sonder om te moes afhaak of vorentoe en agtertoe te sukkel. Die chalets was toegerus soos dit geadverteer is met beddens en matrasse wat 'n aangename nagrus verseker het voordat daar weer 'n lang skof die volgende dag aangepak moes word. In die midsomer kan die chalets baie warm raak, maar die waaiers in die kamers maak dit baie draagliker. Die swembad op die terrein is ook heerlik om in af te koel.

Translate to English.

A convenient overnight stop on the N1 Cape Town-Pretoria.

We were a group of 4 adults, 3 children, 3 small dogs, 3 tow vehicles and 3 trailers and stayed overnight in 2 chalets. Joalani was willing to accommodate us. Joalani is located close to the N1, but was far enough that the traffic didn't bother us at all. We found Joalani very comfortable with plenty of room to turn with the vehicles and trailers without having to unhook or struggle forwards and backwards. The chalets were equipped as advertised with beds and mattresses which ensured a pleasant night's rest before another long shift the next day. In midsummer the chalets can get very hot, but the fans in the rooms make it much more bearable. The swimming pool on site is also lovely to cool off in.

Ongelooflike Karoo gasvryheid - baie goeie waarde vir geld.

Daar was 2 vegans saam met ons op reis en op versoek het Mare vir hulle die heerlikse vegan botterskorsie-gereg gemaak, en daarna op hulle versoek ook nog 'n slaai en braaibroodjies. Ons braaipakke met regte egte Karoo-lam, braaibroodjies, aartappel- EN beetslaai was onvoortreflik! Hulle braaibroodjies is van die beste ooit! Ons het regtig tuis gevoel - wonderlike diens en gasvryheid - kan hulle met vrymoedigheid aanbeveel.

Amazing Karoo hospitality - very good value for money.

There were 2 vegans traveling with us and at their request Mare made them the delicious vegan butternut squash dish, and then at their request also another salad and barbecue sandwiches. Our barbecue packs with real genuine Karoo lamb, barbecue buns, potato AND beetroot salad were unsurpassed! Their barbecue sandwiches are some of the best ever! We really felt at home - great service and hospitality - can recommend them with confidence.

Lekker plaasatmosfeer om in te ontspan.

Oase vir die moeë reisiger wat iets anders as hotel of net 'n gastehuis soek. Probeer gerus die opsionele aandete - Karookos van sy ma af.

Die eenheid is heeltemal voldoende en ek hou van die plaas-opset.

Die eenheid was skoon en netjies. Kan dalk kapstok/hangplek aanbring vir baadjies ens. in hoofvertrek. Trokgeraas op die nabygeleë N1 kan sommige mense dalk pla. Ek hou van die ligging en die natuur daar. Het nie etes geneem nie en kan dus nie kommentaar lewer nie.

Presies wat reisigers nodig het om van 'n lang rit te herstel.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang en was baie tevrede met ons kamer en die geriewe. Ons het aandete by Joalani bestel en het absoluut heerlik geëet. Iets wat ons graag onder hulle aandag wil bring is die geluide wat die "geyser" of die doringboomtakke op die dak maak. Die wind het taamlik sterk gewaai en die vreemde geluide het ons die hele nag gepla.

Exactly what travelers need to recover from a long drive.

We were received very kindly and were very satisfied with our room and the facilities. We ordered dinner from Joalani and had an absolutely delicious meal. Something we would like to bring to their attention is the noises made by the "geyser" or the thorn tree branches on the roof. The wind was blowing quite strongly and the strange noises bothered us all night.

Heerlik rustig en veilig, netjies en skoon, ongelooflike goeie waarde vir geld.

Ek was werklik aangenaam verras. Ek het in die budget-kamer geslaap, maar ek het niks meer nodig gehad nie. Die prys was ongelooflik billik. Ek sal selfs volgende keer oorweeg om my eie tentjie op te slaan. Die kamer het nie 'n en suite badkamer nie, maar die gemeenskaplike badkamer was pragtig netjies, al was dit 'n entjie van die kamer af. Ek kon lekker afkoel in die swembad en ek was dankbaar dat my hondjie ook welkom was.

I was really pleasantly surprised. I stayed in the budget room, but had everything I needed. The price was very reasonable. I would even consider putting up my own tent next time. My room didn't have an en-suite bathroom, but the communal bathroom was beautifully neat, even though it was a little walk from the room. I was able to cool down in the swimming pool and I was happy that my dog was also welcome.

Die "budget"-kamer het ons verruil met 'n kamer met 'n badkamer (met bybetaling natuurlik). Die rede is dat die ablusieblok heeltemal te ver van die "budget"-kamer is en dit was nie baie duidelik oorgedra nie. Die ontvangs was vriendelik en goed.

We swopped the budget room for a room with a bathroom (at an additional cost of course). The reason is that the ablution block is way too far from the budget room and that wasn't communicated clearly. The reception was friendly and good.

Baie lekker oorslaapplek.

Ons het baie laat arriveer, maar ons gasvrou was baie vriendelik. Die kamer was gereed en baie netjies. Enigste ding wat gepla het was die ketel se koord wat nie by die plug kan bykom as dit op die yskas staan nie. Dit is bietjie ongemaklik om op die grond te werk - 'n verlengingskoord sal wonderlik wees.
