Gasvryheid perfeksie! Ontbyt vir ’n koning!

Waarde vir geld verblyf. Ontbyt uit die boonste rakke. Sentraal geleë! 15 km vanaf Ballito en 15 km vanaf Umhlanga.

Arrived and nobody opened the gate. Our taxi driver had to hoot a couple of times to wake the host.

Spiders in the room, dirty curtains hanging on the floor, curtain rack falling off.

We had a comfortable stay at La-Peng, but the establishment needs some basic maintenance.

We were warmly greeted by our host and shown to our comfortable room. I am still not sure why it’s called the black and white room. I thought the room lacked maintenance and was particularly concerned that we were unable to lock the balcony door as we perceived this to be a security risk. Although there was a guard dog that, sadly, seems to spend much of his day tethered to a chain. We prefer to have a dark room at night, but the curtains in our allotted room did not block out the reasonably bright outside lights. The TV remote was not operational but we were able to switch the unit on manually and to select channels via the DStv remote. It would be of benefit to me if there were some additional plugs in the room where we could have charged cell phones without having to first unplug the bedside lamps. The same goes for the kettle which could not be used without unplugging the fridge or TV. Breakfast was very tasty but, if I had been given a choice, I would have preferred to have had fried eggs and not scrambled. I had to kneel down to retrieve an item that I dropped onto the floor and noticed that the area under the bed appeared to have not been cleaned in some time.

Not what we expected.

No privacy. Internet photos very nice, but not real.

La-Peng Guest House 's response

Dear Lourine,
Thank you for your comments,
We would just like to respond to your remarks.
As to no privacy, you had the whole second floor for yourself, 2 bedrooms, 2 balconies with no other guest on that floor.
The photos on our web page and TravelGround were taken by us, with no touch-up or enhancements.
Kind regards,
Dorothy and Alex

Ongelooflike lekker ervaring.

Uitstekende waarde vir geld. Gashere Alex en Dorothy is spesiale mense wat jou tuis laat voel. Gaan uit hulle pad om dit gerieflik en spesiaal te maak. Elke oggend se ontbyt was puik. Naby aan alle fasiliteite en strande.

Unbelievably nice experience.

Excellent value for money. Hosts Alex and Dorothy are special people who make you feel at home. Go out of their way to make it comfortable and special. Every morning's breakfast was great. Close to all facilities and beaches.

Gemaklike en bekostigbare verblyf naby aan King Shaka Lughawe.

Ek is baie vriendelik ontvang. My kamer was netjies, gemaklik en goed ingerig. Mooi uitsig van die see en baie vinnig om by die lughawe uit te kom.

Comfortable and affordable accommodation close to King Shaka Airport.

I was received very kindly. My room was neat, comfortable and well appointed. Nice view of the sea and very quick to get to the airport.

Baie vriendelik en maak spesiale moeite om 'n goeie ontbyt te bedien op stoep met see-uitsig.

Die gastehuis het ongelukkig te veel trappe wat beweging moelik maak indien jy afhanklik is van krukke (my vrou het 'n fraktuur op haar voet gehad voor ons by die gastehuis opgedaag het). 'n Huurmotor sal aanbeveel word omdat die gastehuis te ver van ander restaurante of winkels is indien gaste wil uitgaan vir aandete of 'n koeldrank wil gaan koop, sal ook 'n steuring vir ander gaste wees aangesien daar slegs een deur is na buite is. My verblyf by 'n ander lodge in Durban 'n week later was so 'n goeie, profesionele ondervinding dat ek La-Peng Guest House nie weer sal gebruik nie. Toegang tot die see ook nie moontlik nie.

Very friendly and makes a special effort to serve a good breakfast on the veranda with a sea view.

The guest house unfortunately has too many stairs which makes movement difficult if you depend on crutches (my wife had a fracture on her foot before we arrived at the guest house). A rental car would be recommended because the guest house is too far from other restaurants or shops if guests want to go out for dinner or buy a cold drink, there will also be a disturbance for other guests as there is only one door to the outside. My stay at another lodge in Durban a week later was such a good, professional experience that I will not use La-Peng Guest House again. Access to the sea also not possible.

Very good hosts, breakfasts excellent, great view.

We throughly enjoyed our 2 day night at La-Peng, our hosts were very attentive and made sure we were comfortable. Guest house has a wonderful sea view, breakfasts catered to all our needs. Would recommend La-Peng Guest House to other travellers.

Lekker en rustig. Alex en sy vrou is baie gaaf en bedagsaam. Sou graag net nader aan 'n swemstrand wou wees.

In die toekoms sal ons eerder na groter sentra kyk waar 'n swemstrand is en dit nie nodig is om heeltyd van vervoer gebruik te maak nie.

Nice and peaceful. Alex and his wife are very nice and considerate. Would just have liked to be closer to the swimming beach.

In the future we will rather look for a more central place with a swimming beach and where it's not necessary to use transport the whole time.
