Oor die algemeen goed.

Foto's is misleidend. Swembad het gewys dis op dieselfde perseel en was op ander perseel, kon nie die swembad gebruik soos gedink om kids besig te hou. Dit was baie sleg. Teen 11uur was daar geen diens in die eenheid. WiFi was konstante probleem en heeltemal af teen Saterdag. WiFi is nie luuksheid, dis noodsaaklik.

Generally good.

Photos are misleading. Pool showed it was on the same site and was on a different site, couldn't use the pool as thought to keep kids busy. It was very bad. By 11am there was no service in the unit. WiFi was constant problem and completely down by Saturday. WiFi is not a luxury, it's a necessity.

Great location. It was fantastic. Very nice stay.

With the loadshedding being a constant issue in South Africa, I would have preferred an alternative to candles. Loadshedding globes or lights would have been great as the candles were quite dim. Also, it would have been nice if the owners would have provided a loadshedding schedule so the guests are aware of the times the lights would be switched off.

Lincoln Cottages Nederburg and Backsberg Cottage 's response

Good day Therusha. Thank you for your review, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We have provided load-shedding lamps in the past, but we are unable to keep up with the replacements of these items due to them constantly being removed when the customer checks out. Thankfully in our area, we are not subject to frequent load shedding, however when the load shedding schedules are published, these at times do not reflect the actual times that we experience load shedding. However, your point is taken, and we will in the future send out load-shedding schedules when these become available. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Ken and Monica, Lincoln Cottages.

Ons was in PMB vir die Midmar Myl.

Lincoln Cottages is baie bekostigbaar, skoon en die eienaars is baie vriendelik. Ons het 2 dae daar spandeer, ons het elke oggend ons ontbyt op tyd gekry en dit was heerlik. Inklok en uitklok was vinnig en maklik. Ons sal hulle volgende jaar weer sien.

Beste gastehuis waar ons al ooit tuis gegaan het.

Huisvesting was gerieflik, alles was skoon en netjies. Dekorasie uit boonste rakke. TV volgens my smaak beskikbaar. Etes is volgens bestelling in wooneenheid op bepaalde tyd afgelewer. Eienaar en gade was altyd vriendelik en hoflik. Veiligheid was meer as voldoende. Geen onnodige reëls wat verblyf versuur het nie. Ek kan dit met die grootste vertroue aanbeveel, veral vir groter groepe. Oorsese besoekers sal dit baie geniet en besonders bekostigbaar vind. Dankie aan die bestuurder en sy gade vir uitsonderlike diens. Sal beslis, as die geleentheid hom voordoen, weer daar tuisgaan.

Best guest house we have ever stayed at.

Accommodation was comfortable, everything was clean and tidy. Top notch decoration. TV according to my taste available. Meals were delivered according to order in residential unit at specified time. Owner and spouse were always friendly and courteous. Security was more than adequate. No unnecessary rules that made the stay difficult. I can recommend it with the utmost confidence, especially for larger groups. Overseas visitors will really enjoy it and find it particularly affordable. Thanks to the manager and his spouse for exceptional service. Will definitely, if the opportunity presents itself, stay there again.

Verblyf was netjies en het aan ons behoeftes voldoen.

Die verblyf self was netjies en het aan ons behoeftes voldoen. Ongelukkig was die area en tuin rondom die woonstel/cottage nie netjies nie. Ons wou nie buite sit nie want dit was eenvoudig nie netjies en kook genoeg nie. Dit het eintik slordig vertoon en was daar 'n tipe container wat teenaan die cottage geplaas was en regtig nie vars gelyk het nie. Die spasie tussen die container en die cottage was so klein dat vroeg die volgende ogend het 'n werker/ tuinwerker teen ons venster verbygeloop om tussen die container en die cottage verby te kom.

Accommodation was neat and met our needs.

The accommodation itself was neat and met our needs. Unfortunately, the area and garden around the apartment/cottage were not tidy. We didn't want to sit outside because it was simply not tidy and cooked enough. It looked a bit untidy and there was a type of container that was placed against the cottage and it really didn't look fresh. The space between the container and the cottage was so small that early the next morning a worker/gardener walked past our window to get between the container and the cottage.

Reception was very hospitable, but didn't realize it was like an apartment attached to a family home.

Overnight for business accommodation. Very good reception and is very hospitable.

Good facility but did not get unit that was booked.

The stay was only for one night before the Amashova cycling event. I booked a cottage so the cyclists could get enough rest before the race. On arrival we were told that we had not been given the cottage we had booked. We were placed in a unit that was in a house the other part of which was rooms. The guests in the rooms (after we asked them to play their music more softly) played the music until 11:45, after which they talked so loudly until the next morning that we didn't sleep at all. The cyclists therefore had to ride the race without a night's rest. I suggest that if a certain type of accommodation is not available, the option should be removed from the web page. Thank you very much.

Enjoyed the stay

Hosts were very accommodating and went out of their way to help, it was a pity about the weather, but enjoyed the time spent here regardless. Must be great to be here when the weather is good.
