The place needs a makeover.

Please cut the grass, the road to the cottages is undrivable, otherwise the place is so marvelous I enjoyed my weekend.

Baie lekker gekuier.

Baie mooi, kort so klein bietjie aandag, weet Covid het 'n groot rol gespeel, maar sal weer gaan kuier.

Was ideaal as 'n oornagstop maar die fasiliteite maak ook verskeie ander funksies moontlik. Maar heelwat opknapping en instandhouding sal nodig wees.

Soos bo genoem.

Was ideal as an overnight stop but the facilities also enable various other functions. But a lot of renovation and maintenance will be needed.

As mentioned above.

Great setting, unique accommodation.

Stay in thatched chalets with a grand view across the lake to the mountain. Totally isolated and so peaceful once you are there, great value, friendly owner. There are downsides, however. It's 20 km down a gravel road. The resort has seen better days and is in need of some renovation. But this apart, it's great.

Dit is 100% veilig en ek was met respek behandel.

Moeite word voor af gereël en bepaln vir jou. Neels gaan uit sy pad om seker te maak dat jy nie verdwaal nie. Net die respek en vooraf beplande gemaklikheid kry alklaar vyf sterre. Mens kan kuier, visvang en braai. Baie lekker plek.

It is 100% safe and I was treated with respect.

Efforts are arranged and determined for you in advance. Neels goes out of his way to make sure you don't get lost. Only the respect and pre-planned comfort all get five stars. One can visit, fish and barbecue. Very nice place.

Not impressed.

Old and not maintained at all.

Awimaweh Resort 's response

Die vissersmans huisies is baie basiese akkommodasie teenaan die water. Dit is geskik vir vissermanne en mense wat meer van kamp hou. Baie mense kies hulle omdat dit goedkoop is. Die chalets is verseker baie beter.
Die spesifieke dag wat Ronelle daar was het die wind verskriklik gewaai en dit was regtig onplesierig. Hulle kon nie die pragtige natuur geniet nie en moes bly in die rondawel, wat natuurlik nou nie so gerieflik is nie.
Ons chalets, tuine, ons onthaal en uitsigte is onvergelykbaar in die Vrystaat en ek en die meeste mense dink ook so. Ons beplan 'n Gholflandgoed en Welstandsentrum en om Awimaweh een van die beste wegbreek plekke en leefstyl akkommodasie instansie te maak.
Ek bied my verskoning aan Ronelle dat hulle ondervinding minder aangenaam was en ek glo hulle was nie by die hoofgebou om te besigtig wat dit bied nie.

Perfect for fishing and relaxing. Fishermen rondawels are not there for luxury, but are more than enough for fishing.

Baie slegte pad! Rondawels is vuil en verniel.

Ons het besluit om na die tweede aand te trek weens die slegte pad en omstandighede. Eienaar het my gesê al trek ons soek hy steeds sy geld vir die ander twee aande.

Very bad road! Rondavels are dirty and ruined.

We decided to move after the second night due to the bad road and conditions. Owner told me that even if we move he is still looking for his money for the other two nights.

Ongelukkig het die mense bespreek en kon nie besigheid as makelaars gedoen kry nie. Ek wens hulle sterkte toe met hulle onderneming vorentoe. Ek het hulle nie gevra dat hulle moet betaal vir die 2 aande wat hulle nie geslaap het nie net die R120 uitstaande vir die aande wat hulle wel geslaap het. Dit lyk nie of hulle in staat is om die R120 te betaal nie en dis jammer dat hulle in die plek daarvan die negatiewe oorsig oor Awimaweh moes kwyt raak. Sterkte.

Stilte en vrede weg van die stad se geraas.

Lieflike plek met stilte en oop ruimtes! Het heerlik gerus. Plek het ongelooflik baie potensiaal en goeie fasiliteite, maar instandhouding kort aandag. Restaurant is tans glad nie in werkende toestand nie. Steeds het ons heerlik gekuier!

Lovely place with silence and open spaces! Had a wonderful rest. Place has incredible potential and good facilities, but maintenance needs attention. Restaurant is currently not in working condition at all. We still had a great time!

Pragtig en rustig.

Baie mooi en rustig. Ons het baie laat gekom, maar die bestuur het gesorg dat ons tuis voel. Was net te kort omdat ons op pad was na 'n ander bestemming.

Absoluut onaangenaam!

Akkommodasie is pateties. Alles vuil en vervalle. Ons is ontvang deur 'n plaasarbeider. Beddegoed vuil en verweer.

Not pleasant at all!

Pathetic accommodation. Everything is dirty and ramshackle. One of the farm labourers checked us in. The bedding was dirty and worn out.

Unbelievable place to relax.

What a beautiful place. The hills surrounding the dam was an awesome sight and we all had a great time. We did not really use the other facilities on the premises, just relaxed at the 2 fishing houses we rented. Plans are already being made for a follow up visit. I will definitely give this place a thumbs up.

Dit was absoluut onaanvaarbaar.

Ek kan nie kla oor die diens nie, want daar was absoluut geen diens nie. Die beddegoed was nie vervang na vorige gaste uit is nie, inteendeel was ons beddegoed in die 11 dae wat ons daar was glad nie omgeruil nie. Met ons aankoms was die opsigter/bestuurder dronk en ook so vir die volgende twee dae. Daarna was hy vervang met iemand anders wat ook nie veel gehelp het nie. Nie een van ons plekke was enigsins uitgevee of skoongemaak nie, ek moes self gaan vra vir toiletpapier. Ek is nie bereid om die volle bedrag uitstaande te betaal vir die swak diens nie. Ek is seker julle sal ook hoor van die mense wat in nr. 3, 4 en 5 gebly het, of as julle nie my glo nie kontak hulle gerus.

This was absolutely unacceptable.

I can't complain about the service because there was absolutely no service. The bedding was not replaced after previous guests left, on the contrary our bedding was not changed at all in the 11 days we were there. When we arrived the caretaker/manager was drunk and so for the next two days. After that he was replaced with someone else who didn't help much either. None of our places were swept or cleaned at all, I had to go and ask for toilet paper myself. I am not willing to pay the full amount outstanding for the poor service. I am sure you will also hear from the people who are in no. 3, 4 and 5 stayed, or if you don't believe me feel free to contact them.

Goeie dag
Die klient was alleen in 'n chalet. Volgens ons bestuurder het die klient ons werker weggewys toe hy die lakens wou oortrek. Ons bestuurder het ook die kliënt versoek om op die ander skoon bed te slaap. Die persoon wat hy na verwys was nie onder die invloed nie, hy het 'n suikersiekte-verwante probleem gehad maar is die volgende dag vervang deur 'n baie bekwame persone. Ek dink dit was eerder 'n geval dat die kliënt nie wou betaal nie want ons het hom van dag een af versoek om te betaal. Ons verseker ons beste diens. Groetnis Neels
