The Homestead het al ons verwagtinge oortref!

Pennie en Ian Human is sekerlik van die vriendelikste eienaars wat mens kan teëkom. Ons verwagtinge is ver oortref met die netjiese, goed toegeruste kamers, die pragtige tuine, skoon swembad en die heerlikste kos. Ons is lanklaas so bederf met gasvryheid en 'n fabelagtige skaap op die spit met oujaarsaand, asook gesellige kuier met ander gaste. Boonop het die kroegman 5-sterdiens verrig. Ons het nie genoeg woorde om hierdie 4 dae se ouwêreldse kuier op te som nie; dit was eenvoudig asembenemend. Baie, baie dankie; ons sal vir seker weer gaan kuier!

The Homestead exceeded all our expectations!

Pennie and Ian Human are certainly some of the friendliest owners you can come across. Our expectations were far exceeded with the neat, well-equipped rooms, the beautiful gardens, clean swimming pool and the most delicious food. We have not been so spoiled with hospitality and a fabulous sheep on the spit on New Year's Eve, as well as socializing with other guests. Additionally, the bartender provided 5 star service. We don't have enough words to sum up this 4-day old-world visit; it was simply breathtaking. Thank you very, very much; we will visit again for sure!

Dit was 'n heerlike plattelandse ondervinding!

Ons het net een aand by die Homestead oorgeslaap en dit was positief. Ons het die "plaasatmosfeer" baie geniet, maar tog bied die Homestead meer as wat 'n mens van 'n 3-ster hotel sou verwag: swembad, gym, groot speletjieskamer, 10-pin bowling (effens primitief, maar dit het nogal karakter!), legkaarte en selfs 'n biblioteek. As 'n mens wil wegkom uit die stad en nie baie luuksheid verwag nie, is die Homestead die ideale plek.

It was a wonderful country experience!

We just stayed one night at the Homestead and it was positive. We enjoyed the "farm atmosphere" a lot, yet the Homestead offers more than one would expect from a 3-star hotel: pool, gym, large game room, 10-pin bowling (slightly primitive, but it has quite a character!), puzzles and even a library. If you want to get away from the city and don't expect much luxury, the Homestead is the perfect place.

Baie lekker, weggesteekte gem!

Was wonderful. Would maybe enjoy a little fridge in the room. I brought cold-drink from town and would like to keep it cold for personal use. Just a suggestion. Very nice, affordable quality accommodation.

Thank you for the advice. Certain rooms do have fridges. Thank you

Baie mooi, netjies en rustig.

Omgewing baie mooi, plaasatmosfeer skep gevoel van rus en vrede, aandete en ontbyt puik. Beslis 'n aanbeveling as jy net wil wegbreek en bietjie rus.

Very beautiful, neat and quiet.

Surroundings very beautiful, farm atmosphere creates a feeling of peace and quiet, dinner and breakfast excellent. Definitely a recommendation if you just want to get away and get some rest.

Vriendelik ontvang, lekker kos.

Lekker plaasgevoel, vriendelike mense, lekker kos. Net ongerieflike stuk grondpad wat sleg is na reën.

Friendly reception, delicious food.

Nice farm atmosphere, friendly people, delicious food. Just an uncomfortable piece of gravel road that is bad after rain.

Exceptionally good value and great folks.

The Homestead is a home away from home, with well appointed rooms, undercover parking, cosy lounges with a big fire, a neat pub and scrumptious meals. Standing out above all was the warm hospitality and especially the incredibly good value. If there was any disappointment it was one thing only: we could see two strong "Homestead" WiFi signals, but they could not help us with getting connected. In today's world, travelers really require reaching their email, checking on business, weather, onward itineraries, bookings, etc. and to be without connectivity, yet knowing it was there, was a real frustration.

Die eienaars van Homestead het ons verblyf 'n absolute plesier gemaak en die kos was fantasties.

As jy nog nie by die Homestead oorgebly het nie, het jy nog nie opregte gasvryheid beleef nie. Baie dankie vir 'n wonderlike naweek.

Eienaar was baie gasvry en vriendelik.

Roete na The Homestead was was onduidelik. GPS neem 'n mens in die veld in. Die eienaar was baie gasvry en vriendelik. Die kamer was skoon en gerieflik en ons het ons verblyf geniet.

Dit is bietjie uit die pad, maar die heerlike kos en gasvryheid maak op daarvoor. Sentrale en Noordelike Drakensberg is slegs 40 minute weg.

Great food

Great place to stay if you really want to do nothing but relax. Would have liked to have lunch on the premises - and since I couldn't, would not recommend a stay longer than 4 days.
