'n Perfekte rusplek as mens net wil oornag of vir 'n paar dae wegbreek.

Puik kamers en 'n mooi restaurant.

A perfect resting place if you just want to spend the night or break away for a few days.

Great rooms and a nice restaurant.

Clean, stylish, perfect for stay-overs.

Clean, close to restaurants and a perfect place to stay for the night while traveling. Had all expected appliances, namely: a fan, microwave, fridge. Style of rooms is lovely.

Everything excellent except for the young male at reception.

We really enjoyed our stay, a one-night sleepover on the way to the coast. Upon arrival, the young guy at reception was not welcoming at all, which is really a shame. Everything else was fine. Even when our water was cold in the morning, we were helped within 5 minutes.

Goeie waarde vir geld en heeltemal gerieflik genoeg vir 'n aand of twee se verblyf tydens sakebesoek. Ongelukkig naby aan die hoofpad wat geraas van trokke en voertuie 'n konstante maak. Sal definitief weer daarheen gaan.

Good value for money and perfectly comfortable enough for a night or two's stay on business. Unfortunately close to the main road which makes noise from trucks and vehicles a constant. Will definitely go there again.

Good location if you are heading to the far north coast, but they could improve on some things.

After a long journey, you look forward to a nice shower and a clean bed for a good night's rest. The latter was 100%. The gas showers are a big problem, you either burn or suffocate. You can't get the showers the right setting at all. With the type of price range one pays there you would at least expect them to have a better system. So it comes down to poor value for your money.

Affordable and clean, easy to find, suitable for overnight stay.

Encountered issue with booking in - somewhere between their admin system and the website my booking went AWOL, which caused slight panic. Thankfully, the shift manager was able to find my reservation via the website and the panic was sorted out, but it requires a bit of attention from Sundowner Lodge management in managing their reservations better.

Good afternoon, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately Piet Retief is hit *HARD* with Eskom and Internal (Municipal) loadshedding (17-20 hours at a time), and even though we do have solar and generators for our guest's convenience, we do struggle with network and the internet because of power interruptions at service providers. Tower batteries only last a certain amount of hours, and with loadshedding as bad as ours, the local lowers and network providers have trouble getting the batteries charged because electricity is only on for 30 minutes at a time...if we're lucky.
This results in emails "disappearing" and often not received, phones not working (landlines and cellphones), etc.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
