Graag verwys ons na ons volledige review.

Ek gee nie graag negatiewe terugvoering nie, praat eerder met die eienaar. Nadat ons die resensies gelees het, is ons baie teleurgesteld omdat ons sien dieselfde klagtes en tekortkominge 'n jaar gelede ook genoem is en die eienaar net belowe het om daaraan aandag te gee, maar steeds nie aan die klagtes voldoen nie. Soos bv. die stort se uitvoerpyp wat erge rioolstank in die eenheid laat. Netheid en higiëne laat baie te wense oor. Indien aandag geskenk word aan die klagtes, kan dit 'n juweel wees vir Karoo Huis. Ons let ook dat vorige kliënte se ervarings by die Manna Restaurant ook nie positief was nie. Ons kom dikwels in die Karoo en ervaar elke keer dieselfde agteruitgang van hierdie restaurant wat ook in die begin 'n juweel en aanwins was vir Williston.

Please refer to our full review.

I don't like to give negative feedback, talk to the owner instead. After reading the reviews we are very disappointed because we see the same complaints and shortcomings were also mentioned a year ago and the owner only promised to address them but still does not live up to the complaints. Like e.g. the shower's outlet pipe leaving a bad sewer smell in the unit. Cleanliness and hygiene leave much to be desired. If attention is paid to the complaints, it could be a jewel for Karoo Huis. We also note that previous customers' experiences at the Manna Restaurant were not positive either. We often come to the Karoo and each time experience the same deterioration of this restaurant which was also a gem and an asset to Williston in the beginning.

Tweede besoek aan Williston, sal verkieslik nie weer daar oorbly nie.

Cora ontvang jou met tipiese Karoo warmte. Heerlike bed met goeie linne en 'n lekker sagte kussing. Die huis het 'n tipiese Karoo atmosfeer. Daar is alles wat jy nodig het, selfs heerlike beskuit en melk in die yskas. Daar is nie 'n gasstoof met 'n ketel om beurtkrag te hanteer nie. Daar was toevallig nie beurtkrag nie. Die eenheid kort 'n bietjie TLC. Die badkamer se riolering en skoonheid het my weerhou om die stortgeriewe te gebruik, iets wat maklik aangespreek kan word. Deure maak nie maklik toe nie en gevolglik was die reuk uit die badkamer ook in die slaapkamer. My tweede besoek aan die enigste restaurant, genaamd Manna, was weer net so teleurstellend. Die personeel is vriendelik, maar die oppervlaktes is nie skoon nie. Ek het 45 minute gewag vir die uitvoer van 'n eenvoudige bestelling, en die slaai was nie vars nie. Die restaurant se deure en hekke is toe voor 8 uur nm wanneer hulle sluit. Die vloere is gemop terwyl mens nog in die restaurant is. 'n Persoon wat 'n wegneemete bestel het vir 8 nm het buite gestaan om 20h10 omdat die hekke reeds gesluit was. Die eienaar se hand is hier nodig. Ek was die enigste aansitgas in die restaurant vanaf 18h45. Die padanysings uit die dorp is swak, ek het 120 km onnodig gery nadat ek die verkeerde pad gevolg het. Ek het 1 uur en 30 minute op my reisty verloor.

Second visit to Williston, would prefer not to stay there again.

Cora welcomes you with typical Karoo warmth. Lovely bed with good linen and a nice soft pillow. The house has a typical Karoo atmosphere. There is everything you need, even delicious biscuits and milk in the fridge. There is no gas stove with a boiler to handle load shedding. There happened to be no load shedding. The unit needs some TLC. The bathroom's plumbing and cleanliness kept me from using the shower facilities, something that can easily be addressed. Doors do not close easily and as a result the smell from the bathroom was also in the bedroom. My second visit to the only restaurant, called Manna, was again just as disappointing. The staff is friendly, but the surfaces are not clean. I waited 45 minutes for a simple order to be carried out, and the salad was not fresh. The restaurant's doors and gates are closed before 8 pm when they close. The floors are mopped while you are still in the restaurant. A person who ordered a takeaway for 8 pm was standing outside at 8.10 pm because the gates were already closed. The owner's hand is needed here. I was the only seated guest in the restaurant from 18h45. The road icing out of town is poor, I drove 120 km unnecessarily after taking the wrong road. I lost 1 hour and 30 minutes on my travel time.

Lekker gebly, my vrou noem die plekkie "cute"!

Vriendelik ontvang deur Cora. Die kamer is gerieflik en ideaal vir oornag. Die krane in die badkamer het miskien bietjie Tender Loving Care nodig. Ons beveel sterk aan dat daar 'n gasplaat in die kombuis gehou word. Ons kon na ons opgestaan het en voor ons vertrek het, nie eers koffie maak nie a.g.v. beurtkrag. Dit is in elk geval nodig buite beurtkrag. Ons het wel beplan om te braai maar alle kos en bykos kan nie in 'n mikrogolfoondjie voorberei word nie.

Friendly welcome by Cora. The room is comfortable and ideal for an overnight stay. The taps in the bathroom may need some Tender Loving Care. We strongly recommend keeping a gas stove in the kitchen. We could have got up after us and before we left, not even making coffee because load shedding It is needed outside of load shedding anyway. We did plan to grill but all food and side dishes cannot be prepared in a microwave oven.

Hierdie was die 3de keer wat ons van Karoo Huis gebruik gemaak het en soos voorheen was ons baie tevrede met die ongekunstelde, dog gesellige akkommodasie wat Karoo Huis bied. Die gasvrou is vriendelik en tegemoedkomend en die geriewe is skoon en netjies met alles wat nodig is vir 'n dag of twee se verblyf.

Friendly owner, rustic old Karoo House.

The owner was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of activities in town. The House is restored without detraction from the original woodwork and fitting, anything more would destroy the heritage, she is a grand old lady. Home-baked rusks in the rooms. Rechargeable globes fitted for our Eskom. Would love to come back for a few days as Williston has a lot to Offer. Phone 24 hrs in advance to book a tour of the Williston Mall. We missed out on this but stopped and took some photos.

Goed genoeg vir 'n oornagveblyf in ag genome die prys betaal.

Die ontvangs was warm en hartlik. Die outydse Karoo "look" was aanvaarbaar vir een nag se verblyf. Met die badkamer het ons nie gemaklik gevoel nie as gevolg van 'n sterk rioolreuk wat daar hang. Waarskynlik omdat die wasbak se uitloop nie aan standaardvereistes voldoen nie. Die stort se waterkrane is gedaan en moet vervang word. As gevolg hiervan kan ek nie die plek aanbeveel nie.

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

Good enough for an overnight stay considering the price paid.

The reception was warm and cordial. The old-fashioned Karoo "look" was acceptable for one night's stay. With the bathroom we did not feel comfortable because of a strong sewage smell hanging there. Probably because the sink spout does not meet standard requirements. The shower faucets are done and need to be replaced. Because of this I cannot recommend the place.

Skitterende Karoo ervaring!

Baie netjies se kamer/s met alles wat nodig is in die pragtige Williston met 'n ryke geskiedenis. Ons gasvrou het uit haar pad gegaan om vir ons in staat te stel om 'n braaidag ervaring te kon geniet. My honde het ook die oorslaap geniet. Ondersteun ons Karoo gemeenskap wat tans erge droogte ervaar. Ons sal beslis weer by Karoo huis oornag!

Was baie ontevrede met die blyplek, het meer verwag van die plek.

Daar was geen borde messe en vurke nie, net koppies en glase. Stort was ook nie lekker nie. Die oggend van vertrek was daar al geraas van net na 6 uur in die oggend en dit was steurend gewees asook die vorige aand. Daar was nêrens laat weet oor dat ons ons eie "cutlery set" moet bring nie, moes by ander mense leen en ek voel dis glad nie waarde vir geld nie.

Was very dissatisfied with the place to stay, expected more from the place.

There were no plates, knives and forks, only cups and glasses. Shower was not nice either. The morning of departure there was already noise from just after 6 o'clock in the morning and it had been disturbing as well as the night before. There was no notice anywhere that we had to bring our own "cutlery set", had to borrow from other people and I feel it is not value for money at all.

Onvergeetlik!

Tannie Cora en Oom Willem is die twee vriendelikste mense in die Karoo. Hulle het osn te hulp gesnel waar ons motor 17 km van Williston twee bande gebars het. Hulle het alles vir ons gereël om die bande op 'n Sondag middag 15:00 te herstel. Onbaatsugtige mense! Die woonstel was baie netjies, skoon en goed toegerus. Ons het lekker gebraai en heerlik geslaap. Lekker gekuier met die twee mense.

Die plekkie is perfek vir oornag op pad Kaap toe ens. Daar is selfs 'n braaiplek en gemaklike sitkamerstoele. Die eienaar kan dalk oorweeg om 'n paar lugversorgers in te sit, die Karoo is mos maar 'n warm plek!

Rustig

Die verblyf was gereed toe ons redelik vroeg opgedaag het. Ons is vriendelik gegroet, alhoewel dit oor die middaguur was. Die lig in die slaapkamer het nie gewerk nie, en ons het verwag dat daar ’n TV in die kamer sou wees, maar die algehele rustigheid het opgemaak hiervoor. Ek sal Karoo Huis aanbeveel as ’n rustige oornagplekkie.

The accommodation was ready when we arrived quite early. We were greeted kindly, even though it was past noon.

Teleurgesteld. Het nie eers kans gesien om daar te slaap nie.

Toe ons daar kom, was daar niemand. Ons het gebel, geen antwoord. Die huis langsaan ook 'n BB. Ons klop toe daar aan en hier sê die vrou dat sy die sleutel het en dat sy vir ons sal oopsluit. Hoe moes ons dit weet? Die plek is 'n ontnugtering. Deurgetrapte rooi sementvloer met 'n vuil bokhaarmat voor die bed. Die wasbak is van hierdie groot buite wasbakke waarin die eetgerei gewas moet word. Geen verkoeler of waaier en geen TV. Ons het die sleutel teruggegee en by "Soek 'n Slapie" gaan slaap. Ek sal volgende keer twee keer dink voor ek deur die webtuiste bespreek.

Disappointed. Didn't even get a chance to sleep there.

When we got there, no one was there. We called, no answer. The house next door also a BB. We then knocked on the door and here the woman said that she had the key and that she would unlock it for us. How were we to know that? The place is a disappointment. Trampled red cement floor with a dirty goat hair rug in front of the bed. The sink is one of these large outdoor sinks in which the utensils must be washed. No radiator or fan and no TV. We returned the key and went to sleep at "Soek 'n Slapie". Next time I will think twice before booking through the website.
