Heerlik gebly, die glase was ongelukkig vol stof, lanklaas gebruik vir seker. Moes eers was voor ons dit kon gebruik.

Karoo stilte. Salf vir die siel.

Oulike 2-slaapkamerhuisie in die Karoo met dekor wat eie en uniek is aan die plattelandse eenvoud. Alles gehad wat ons benodig het. Ongelukkig was die matrasse op die dubbelbeddens deur gelê en vol springs soos in my ouma se dae, so nie die beste nagrus na 'n lang dag op pad nie.

Karoo silence. Salve for the soul.

Cute 2-bedroom house in the Karoo with decor that is own and unique to rural simplicity. Had everything we needed. Unfortunately, the mattresses on the double beds were worn and full of springs like in my grandmother's days, so not the best night's rest after a long day on the road.

Baie lekker gekuier op die rustige, maar interessante dorp.

Alien Inn is goed toegerus en netjies en die area is stil en veilig. Die diens was goed en ons het heerlik daar gebly. Michelle het seker gemaak ons is goed ingelig oor goed om te doen wat ons baie gehelp het. Ons het heerlik gekuier en baie geleer oor die sterre en planete. Sutherland het sommer 'n spesiale plek in ons harte gekry en ons kan Alien Inn sterk aanbeveel aan enige iemand wat ooit die geleentheid het om na die dorp te kan reis.

Very nice visit in the quiet, but interesting town.

Alien Inn is well equipped and tidy and the area is quiet and safe. The service was good and we had a wonderful stay there. Michelle made sure we were well informed about things to do which helped us a lot. We had a great time and learned a lot about the stars and planets. Sutherland has a special place in our hearts and we can highly recommend Alien Inn to anyone who ever has the opportunity to travel to the town.

It was a basic self-catering home.

The hosts were lovely and looked after us. Just had a problem cooking with the stove working on and off. Otherwise, it was a lovely weekend.

Alien Inn 's response

Thanks Jason for the positive review, glad you enjoyed the stay.
We investigated the intermittent stove and found a loose connection in the main switch above the stove, thanks a million for pointing this out.

Alien Inn 's response

Roelf, baie dankie vir jou resensie.
Die eenheid wat julle bespreek het met vol kombuis word daagliks skoongemaak.
Jy was immers welkom om met ons kontak te maak indien daar enige ontevredenheid was rakende die geriewe. Vooraf kommunikasie kon verhoed het dat jy teleurgesteld was in die braai geriewe. Die kaggel geriewe in die sitkamer vir die koue wintermaande is nie 'n binne braai, soos julle dit gebruik het nie.
Graag stel ek voor as julle weer bespreek, julle bevestig dat die geriewe wel aan julle vereistes voldoen.
Veilige myle en Lekke Karoo Groete. Die Simon's.

The place is absolutely beautiful, complete with hot water bottles and electric blankets. The sunroom is a stunning place to have your morning breakfast or to get lost in your book. Furnished with absolutely everything you could need, every detail was taken into account. Was a welcome, warm stay and would definitely be back!

Dit was amazing. Kon oor niks kla nie. Baie vriendelike en behulpsame mense.

Ons ondervinding in Surherland is voorwaar iets om te onthou. Michelle en Ettienne is die vriendelikste mense en is altyd beskikbaar vir 'n navraag oor die dorp of as jy hulle hulp nodig het met enige iets anders. Die plek is baie netjies met pragtige decor. Dit was soos home away from home. Ek sal vir seker weer daar bly as ek weer die voorreg het om Sutherland te besoek. 5 sterretjies van my en my dad af.

Our experience in Surherland is truly something to remember. Michelle and Ettienne are the friendliest people and are always available for a query about the town or if you need their help with anything else. The place is very neat with beautiful decor. It was like home away from home. I will definitely stay there again if I have the privilege of visiting Sutherland again. 5 stars from me and my dad.

Rustig ontspanne soos by jou eie huis! Heerlik stil.

Die verblyf by Alien-Inn is gerieflik en netjies met 'n kalmte wat jou oorspoel. Ons sal dit met groot vrymoedigheid aanbeveel vir enige twee of 'n gesin. Alles is netjies en meer as voldoende vir gemaklike selfversorging. Daar was genoegsame voorsiening vir koue nagte - van elektriese kombers, verwarmers, komberse en selfs die getroue ou warmwaterbottel. Persoonlike aandag en moeite, selfs 'n WhatsApp om te hoor of ons veilig ons uiteindelike bestemming bereik het.

Relaxing like your own house! Very quiet.

The stay at Alien Inn is comfortable and neat with a calmness that overcomes you. We would recommend it with for anyone or a family. Everything is neat and more than adequate for comfortable self-care. There was sufficient provision for cold nights - from electric blankets, heaters, blankets and even the faithful old hot water bottle. Personal attention and effort, even a WhatsApp to hear if we have safely reached our ultimate destination.
