Nie heeltemal wat ons verwag het na 'n lang dag nie.

Babs is 'n vriendelike gasvrou en het vir ons 'n lekker Vadersdag-ete voorberei. Die kamer waarin ons gebly het, het beslis "TLC" en onderhoud nodig. Ons het gesoek na die gastehuis, want daar is nie borde nie en alhoewel daar blykbaar nuwe borde gemaak word, sien ek 'n vorige gas het ookal 'n rukkie terug gekla. Die WiFi het ook nie tot by ons kamer ontvangs nie.

Not quite what we expected after a long day.

Babs is a friendly hostess and prepared a nice Father's Day meal for us. The room we stayed in definitely needs "TLC" and maintenance. We looked for the guest house because there are no signs and although new signs seem to be being made, I see a previous guest complained a while back. The WiFi didn't even reach our room.

It was good.

It was good but they could only have pulled down the bedclothes one or two times and there was less food. Only two of each.

The name plate and phone number need a lot of attention. Illegible.

It is not at all easy to find because information is unclear. Older people are not comfortable in a 'hammock' and I suggest the owner should upgrade their beds.

Cozy oasis in Namibia on our way to the Fish River.

We had such a pleasant night at Avondsrus. Babs looked after us so well and made a delicious dinner for us on arrival. Breakfast the next morning was also very good. The rooms were very comfortable and just what we wanted after a long trip. Highly recommended for anyone traveling through the Ariamsvlei border post. Google maps location could be updated as it led us one road south of where we should have been but there are signs and we found it eventually.

Dit was net 'n vinnige oorslaap, maar baie gerieflik en skoon.

Babs het uit haar pad gegaan om ons te akkommodeer en alles vir ons gerieflik te maak selfs nadat ons 'n dag vroeër as beplan of bespreek daar opgedaag het. Werklik 'n aangename ervaring!

Vriendelike diens, ruim en mooi slaapgeriewe, maar nie baie goeie selfsorggeriewe en stortgeriewe nie.

As die eienaar self daar sou oornag, probeer teemaak en stort, sal sy agterkom dat daar net klein dingetjies is wat nodig is om die plek 100% gerieflik te maak. Die foto op die advertensie is aantreklik, maar dalk moet dit bietjie opdateer word.

Friendly service, spacious and nice sleeping facilities, but not very good self-catering facilities and shower facilities.

If the owner herself were to spend the night there, try to make tea and take a shower, she would notice that there are only small things that are needed to make the place 100% comfortable. The photo on the ad is attractive, but maybe it should be updated a bit.

Needs additional services.

Our visit started off with a struggle as we searched for the venue for 20 minutes due to poor signage and after asking several locals, we managed to find the venue. Coming from outside the country we could not phone, but was able to let ourselves in to which we found no one in reception. We then had to inquire from another guest as to who we had to contact and after waiting a while, we made contact with the owners. The room was average except for no fridge or stove being available in the self-catering unit.
