Lekker akkommodasie op 'n stil plek in die bos.

Die chalets is goed toegerus, maar let daarop dat daar geen televisies is nie. Die ontbyt wat ingesluit is, was heerlik en dit word vars voorberei. Die personeel doen hulle bes met wat tot hulle beskikking is, is hulpvaardig en vriendelik. Die swembad is baie mooi en 'n lafenis in die hitte van die bosveld. Ek het my verblyf daar baie geniet.

Nice accommodation in a quiet place in the forest.

The chalets are well equipped, but note that there are no televisions. The included breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared. The staff do their best with what is available to them, are helpful and friendly. The swimming pool is very nice and a relief in the heat of the bushveld. I really enjoyed my stay there.

Compliments of the season.
Thank you so much for your review and comments. TV isn't a facility, as most of our guests bring their tablets/phones etc., which is why WiFi is included in our rate.
We were happy to be your hosts and are glad that you also enjoyed your stay.

Almal was baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig.

Net 'n voorstel: Elke bed het slegs 1 kussing per persoon en daar was nie 'n ekstra kombers in 'n kas nie. Nie dat mens normaalweg ekstra komberse in Phalaborwa nodig het nie, maar daar was 'n kouefront. Ons het andersins heerlik gebly.

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

Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Just a suggestion: Each bed only has 1 pillow per person and there wasn't an extra blanket in a closet. Not that you normally need extra blankets in Phalaborwa, but there was a cold front. We had a wonderful stay otherwise.

Thank you very much for your rating and suggestion, which we will take into consideration. Thank you, again.
You are absolutely right, It has been a very cold winter this year, and it has taken us by surprise; we will get hold of more blankets as soon as possible. If you ever come to our area again, it would certainly be a pleasure to welcome and host you. Bush regards, Team Normann Safari/Tine

Ontbyt het opgemaak vir die slegte kamer.

Die badkamer se ligte werk nie en die badkamer het nie deure nie. Die plek is bietjie afgeleef en word nie regtig onderhou nie. Die ontbyt was regtig lekker.

Breakfast made up for the bad room.

The bathroom lights do not work and the bathroom has no doors. The place is a bit tired and not really maintained. The breakfast was really nice.

Thank you for your review, it's much appreciated.
It took us (the owners, stuck overseas due to COVID situation globally) a while to get the incident right, in order for us to reply to your comments, which we definitively would like to apologize for.
Apparently the sliding door to the bathroom was handed in for repair, and forgotten, the room you stayed in is with sliding door to make an easier access for disabled (wheelchairs especially).
The globes we use in the bathroom are LED, they are not working nicely, so we have changed all of them, not that it will affect your experience, which is unfortunate, and we are sorry about.
Kind regards Bjoern & Tine Normann

Fasiliteit was onvoorbereid, onnet en karig voorsien van eetgerei, beddegoed en beligting. Kaste was vol stof en spinnerakke.

Die bestuur het wel toe moeite gedoen om sake te beredder maar eerste indrukke bly maar blywend. Die personeel was deurgaans vriendelik en hulpvaardig en het klagtes vinnig hanteer.

Facility was unprepared, untidy and poorly supplied with cutlery, bedding and lighting. Cupboards were full of dust and cobwebs.

The management did make an effort to resolve matters, but first impressions remain lasting. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful and dealt with complaints quickly.

Dit was aangenaam en rustig, maar deur die aand was ons rus versteur deur lawaai uit die eenheid naaste aan diep kant van die swembad.

Die betrokke gaste was vanaf omtrent 23:00 tot 04:00 uiters luidrugtig. Ons was op pad om diens in Kruger Wildtuin te gaan doen, so dit was dus 'n teleurstellende begin tot ons projek.

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

It was pleasant and peaceful, but throughout the evening our rest was disturbed by noise from the unit closest to the deep end of the pool.

The guests in question were extremely loud from about 11pm to 4am. We were on our way to do service in Kruger Wildlife Park, so it was a disappointing start to our project.

Thank you so much for your review, and for staying with us.
We do apologize sincerely about the noisy neighbours on the plot next to ours.
Unfortunately, they held their party during your stay (usually we can brag with the calm and quiet location in the bush), it was rather difficult, and out our control, to calm them, as their party was not on our premises.

Sal nie vir meer as een nag bly nie.

Die verblyf het baie potensiaal, maar is erg verwaarloos. Die werkers is baie vriendelik en hulpvol, maar daar is geen eienaar of bestuur te siene nie.

Excellent value for money with friendly staff who go out there way to make your stay enjoyable.

It was a great breakaway and good value for money. If you want the bells and whistles you need to look elsewhere. The staff were great and as we were visiting Kruger wanted an early start. At 05:00 our packed breakfasts were ready with a flask of boiling water for coffee. Would highly recommend. The only negative from my side was the road to get there. The last 4 km's is gravel and not great but if you do slowly no issue.
