Lekker geslaap.

Ja, ek het lekker geslaap en koffie en melk met suiker en tee gekry. Dit was regtig gaaf.

Dis teleurstellend, liewer vermy.

Dit was baie teleurstellend en die enigste positiewe was dat die ligte en WiFi tydens beurtkrag gewerk het. Ongelukkig is daar baie meer negatiewe. Kamer 1: Die gasgeiser het nie gewerk nie. Daar was geen warm water by die wasbak nie. Die toilet is eintlik net geskik vir kinders (baie laag). Die yskas het nie gewerk nie. Kamer 2: Die badkamermure is slegs van sinkplaat gemaak en dit was baie koud. Daar was geen prop in die wasbak nie. Die yskas/vrieskas het verskriklik gestink en nie gewerk nie. Die buite-area was glad nie skoon en netjies nie. Die ligging is swak: dit is geleë in Rensburg en nie in Heidelberg self nie, en dit is baie naby 'n treinspoor met treine wat konstant ry. Die eienaar het wel 'n deel van een kamer se kostes terugbetaal omdat die geiser nie gewerk het nie.

It's disappointing, better to avoid.

It was very disappointing and the only positive was that the lights and WiFi worked during load shedding. Unfortunately, there are many more negatives. Room 1: The gas geyser did not work. There was no hot water at the sink. The toilet is actually only suitable for children (very low). The fridge didn't work. Room 2: The bathroom walls were only made of corrugated iron and it was very cold. There was no plug in the sink. The fridge/freezer smelled awful and didn't work. The outside area was not clean and tidy at all. The location is poor: it is located in Rensburg and not in Heidelberg itself, and it is very close to a train track with trains running constantly. The owner did refund part of one room's costs because the geyser didn't work.

More Marieta, baie dankie vir die terug voering en jammer om te hoor julle het glad nIe die absolute budget friendly verblyf geniet nIe. Darm het u gesien daar is versiening vir loadshedding”wonder hoeveel ander plekkies dit het” En yes daar was 50 percent terug betaal op die kamer wat se geyser opgepak het” weer verwang danksy versekering. “Die ligging is snaaks genoeg die grootse bly area van heidelberg en vorm deel van een van die 9 bly areas in Heidelberg”ook tans die Heidelbergse postkantoor wat in werking is is ook in Rensburg. Een van die veiligste en stilste areas om in te woon. Dan op n mooi manier gestel ons is ook die cheapste plek om by te bly so cheap dat daai pizza wat u bestel het een kamer se aand Prys dek, en Vir daai rede dat ons so goedkoop is trek ons gaste wat budget friendly verblyf kan bekosting en nIe die Baie duurder Prys betaal vir n ander plek nie. Vir die Prys van Slegte R400 per nag offer ons Baie meer as wat mense Sal verwag. En Sal u ook weer met graagte terug wil he waneer u weer plek nodig het in Heidleberg en nIe die duurder pryse wil betaal nIe”sekere plekkies tot op amper R2000 per aand”. Die tweede kamer yes Dankie ons stem saam daai yskas het n snaakse reuk en het besluit Daai kamer het nIe nodig om n yskas te he nie, Weens ons so goedkoop is kan ons ook nIe yskaste permanent aan los nIe. En hulle as af by die muur so net n oproep aan ons ok of te kyk na die plug sou dit laat werk het, ons maak regtig Baie baie min geld op die verblyf met kostes wat internet dek, die skoon maak middels en Labour, die komiesie wat betaal moet word op die platvorm, die koffie en tee en melk en badkamer nodighede, elektriese tyd en water. Daar is in elke kamer n extra kombers in die kas jammer dat u dit nIe Sien het nIe ons los dit daar standard en winter ander solutions. Ons styl van akkomodasie is beslis nIe white linen Ect nIe, en ook gaan ook nIe verander om n boring plek te maak wat net die selfde as elke ande plek is nIe ons kamers is Unique “soos u kan Sien op ons foto’s”en ons kry baie mense wat terugkom. So weerheens jammer dar ons plek nIe u standaarde gepas het nIe en hoop en glo u Sal eendag weer kom inloer. Beste groete the shack life span

Baie vriendelike ontvangs. Maklik om te kry en baie gerieflik.

Dit was regtig om die shack life te ondervind, met al die gerief wat die reisiger nodig gehad het. Baie oorspronklik en goed ingerig. Werklik bekostigbaar. El sal enige tyd weer daar inloer vir 'n heerlike nag se uitrus. Dankie, Wynand!

Skoon, netjiese en veilige verblyf.

Die Wild Pear Shack is ideaal vir 'n enkelpersoon of twee mense om oor te slaap. Gerieflik ingerig, uitstekende diens en loadshedding-vriendelik. Geen kosmaakgeriewe nie, maar wel 'n elektriese en gasketel. Groot badkamer met warm water en 'n lekker stort. Veilig en goed geleë t.o.v. die besigheidsentrum. Geen TV nie, maar wel wi-fi. Ek sal vir seker weer daar gaan oorslaap indien ek weer in Heidelberg moet oornag.

Clean, tidy and safe accommodation.

The Wild Pear Shack is ideal for a single person or two people to sleep over. Comfortably furnished, excellent service and loadshedding friendly. No cooking facilities, but an electric and gas kettle. Large bathroom with hot water and a nice shower. Safe and well located in relation to the business center. No TV, but wi-fi. I will definitely stay there again if I have to spend the night in Heidelberg again.

Ons moes laat aand na 'n troue 'n plek kry om te slaap. Met die laat koms en baie reën was Wynand vriendelik en geduldig.

Ons was net een aand daar. Dit was stil. Daar is 'n treinspoor naby maar dit was vir my lekker om dit te hoor so in die verte. Die haan het my vrou lekker vroeg wakker gekraai, maar ek self was weg. Het 'n goeie rus benodig en het dit gekry.

We had to find a place to sleep late at night after a wedding. With the late arrival and a lot of rain, Wynand was kind and patient.

We were only there one night. It was quiet. There is a train track nearby but it was nice for me to hear it so far away. The rooster woke my wife up nice and early, but I myself was away. Needed a good rest and got it.

Baie teleurgesteld!

Ons was baie teleurgesteld in die kamer. Dit is nie in 'n goeie area geleë nie, die erf om die huis is baie vuil en deurmekaar, die kamer stink na muf en 'n mens kan ruik dit het lank toe gestaan. Daar was nie genoeg warm water om te stort nie, en wasbak het ook geen warm water nie die bedlampie werk ook nie, die eienaar was egter baie vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Very disappointed!

We were very disappointed in the room. It is not located in a good area, the yard around the house is very dirty and messy, the room stinks of mold and you can smell it has been standing there for a long time. There wasn't enough hot water to shower, and the sink didn't have hot water either, the bedside lamp didn't work either, however the owner was very friendly and helpful.
