Gemaklik ingerigte verblyf. Vriendelike ontvangs vanaf Maggie gehad.

Groot voordeel is die 2 badkamers met meer as 2 storte. Veral omdat dit vriende was wat die verblyf gedeel het. Die onderste stort se stortkop moet dalk net na gekyk word omdat dit nie sterk spuit nie. Een kopseer was die in- en uitgaan by die hek, aangesien jy nie 'n remote kry nie, maar elke keer die eienaars moet kontak om oop te maak deur die interkom. Veral as mens laat inkom. Sal wel weer gebruik maak van hulle verblyf.

Bananien Lodge's response

Dankie vir die terugvoer. Indien julle die stort gerapporteer het tydens verblyf sou ons kon kyk daarna.
Die Remote kan nie vir kliente gegee word nie want dan het ek geen kontrole oor veiligheid van gaste nie. Dit is nie vir ons n probleem om laatnag op te staan en hek oop te maak nie.

Pragtig, netjies, goed ingerig, gronde baie netjies en goed versorg.

Bananien Lodge is regtig waarde vir geld en die netheid van die huisies en die gronde is puik en dit is duidelik dat die eienaars trots is op hulle plekkie en dit wys in die netheid van Bananien Lodge. Ons beveel die plekkie baie hoog aan vir enige een wat wil rustig wees in 'n goed versorgde lodge.

Absolute wonderlike ligging, gasvryheid en atmosfeer.

Sal Bananien aanbeveel. Wonderlike verblyf, rustigheid, gasvryheid en sal beslis weer daar bly. Geen selfoon opvangs, maar well worth it. Jy breek weg van die gejaag van die stad en fone. Jacques en Marli het 1 aand saam met ons kom braai. Wat 'n voorreg was dit om saam met hulle te kon kuier. Hulle is beslis tops en jou verblyf daar is beslis jou geld werd. Tot 'n volgende keer!

Bananien Lodge's response

Baie dankie vir die terugvoer. Dit is altyd lekker om te hoor as ons gaste lekker gebly het. Neem asb. kennis dat by die kantoor het ons n selfoon versterker opgesit, So in die omtrek van die kantoor is daar sein.
Hoop om julle sommer gou weer te huisves.

Baie goeie waarde vir geld. Eenheid was netjies en skoon. Geen stort in eenheid is iets om na op te let indien jy bespreek. Bananien is baie sentraal. Eienaars was ongelooflik vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ek sal enige tyd Bananien aanbeveel.

Bananien Lodge is 'n fantastiese wegkruip-plekkie.

Die area is baie naby aan omliggende restaurante en ander aantreklikhede soos God's Window maklik om te navigeer. Die huise is ook baie mooi en mens is skoon verbaas met die natuur se geluide, sonsondergang en sonsopkoms. Baie netjiese plek wat professioneel bestuur word.

Die bed was absoluut baie ongemaklik!

Die houthuisie het instandhouding nodig en die dubbelbed moet vervang word. Die badkamer het soms 'n reuk gehad!

Bananien Lodge's response

Dankie vir u terugvoer.
Die gaste wat in dieselfde huisie geslaap het vir 3 dae voor u aankoms het geen klagtes gehad oor die bed nie of enige ander sake nie. Die beddens word vir die gaste bedryf vervaardig.
Die huisies word gereeld onderhou. Kan u vir my dalk laat weet wat dit is wat u waarneem wat herstel moet word? Sal ondersoek instel na die reuk in die badkamer.

Gerieflik en bekostigbaar.

Badwater was koud na eerste bad. Stort het nie gewerk nie. Geen WiFi en beperkte selfoon- en data-ontvangs. Waterketel het nie gewerk nie.

Bananien Lodge's response

Dankie vir terugvoer. Het handstort getoets in bad dit werk, stort kraan moet net oopgedraaiword. Ons is in die berge en daarom is daar swak opvangs. Het reeds hierdie jaar n R5000.00 Booster opgesit vir beter opvangs vir gaste. Alhoewel u net 1 aand geslaap het sou ons die ketel onmiddelik omgeruil het indien u dit gerapporteer het. Die geyser is 'n 100l.

Inconvenience to Jacque, needs to stay up to open and close gate.

I think that it must be a big inconvenience to Jacque to have to stay up or get up early to open and close the front gate. Signal a problem.

Thank you for the review. It is a inconvenience to all of us here at Bananien Lodge but we do not complain. We will do whatever we have to to keep our guest safe and happy. We have a signal booster at the office where there is good signal.

Substandard accommodation with quite a few household items that need attention.

We stayed in Sabie for 3 days, with our family and parents, therefore we were 6 guests. The unit offers 2 bathrooms, the lower bathroom has no hot water and with our departure we mentioned it to the manager who is completely aware of it. Also, only 4 of the 8 beds were provided with electric blankets, although the price we paid was 8 people. There were no towels provided, tin opener and toaster are not in working order. We picked up problems with our car and the manager couldn't give any advice on where we could take the car. We paid R1 800 a night and the accommodation was substandard, not worth the money at all, and would not recommend it to families with more than 4 guests.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Sub-standaard verblyf met 'n hele paar huishoudelike items wat aandag nodig het.

Ons het vir 3 dae tuisgegaan in Sabie, met ons gesin en ouers dus 6 gaste. Die eenheid bied 2 badkamers waarvan die onderste badkamer se stort geen warm water het nie en met ons vertrek het ons dit aan die bestuurder genoem wat heeltemal daarvan bewus is. Ook was net 4 van die 8 beddens voorsien met elektriese komberse, alhoewel die prys wat ons betaal het vir 8 mense was. Daar was geen handdoeke voorsien nie, blikoopmaker en broodrooster is nie in werkende orde nie. Ons het probleme opgetel met ons motor en die bestuurder kon geen advies gee oor waarnatoe ons die kar kon vat nie. Ons het R1 800 per nag betaal en die verblyf was sub-standaard, geensins die geld werd nie, en sal dit nie vir gesinne met meer as 4 gaste aanbeveel nie.

Die elektriese stort kop was vervang asook die toaster, ketel en blikoopmaker. Ons voorsien ongelukkig net handdoeke op versoek.

Baie lekker maar baie beknop.

Die chalet is skoon en netjies, maar die dubbelbed se matras is baie deurgeslaap. Ek en my man het albei rugpyn na die naweek. Dit het ook heeltyd gereën, en daar is nêrens in die chalet 'n gemaklike plek om te sit nie. Jou keuse is of die bed met die ongemaklike matras of 'n harde houtstoeljie by 'n piepklein tafeltjie. Die stapelbed se leertjie is ook gebreek wat dit moeilik maak vir die kind wat bo slaap. Die tuine is pragtig en die omgewing asemrowend. Die swembad is skitterskoon, hoewel ons nie geswem het nie. Met bietjie meer onderhoud sal dit regtig 'n fantastiese plekkie wees vir 'n vinnige wegbreek!

Wonderfully relaxing with hosts who take your privacy into account!

Since we were the only guests during our stay, it was wonderfully private. The cottages are very compact and kept neat and clean. Ideal for when you want to do other activities in the area and want to return to a peaceful relaxing atmosphere in the evenings. It was value for our money, but if we didn't get it for the promotional discount we wouldn't have paid the initial price for this type of accommodation.

Heerlik ontspannend met gashere wat jou privaatheid in ag neem!

Aangesien ons die enigste gaste tydens ons verblyf was, was dit heerlik privaat. Die huisies is baie kompak en word netjies en blinkskoon gehou. Ideaal vir wanneer daar ander aktiwiteite in die area gedoen wil word en saans wil terugkeer na 'n rustige ontspannende atmosfeer. Dit was waarde vir ons geld, maar indien ons dit nie vir die promosie-afslag gekry het nie sou ons nie die aanvanklike prys vir hierdie tipe akkommodasie betaal het nie.

Rustig en goed geleë.

Ons beveel Bananien met vrymoedigheid aan vir enigiemand wat in 'n mooi rustige omgewing vakansie wil hou, sentraal geleë tot die omgewing se toeriste-aantreklikhede en gemaklik is met selfsorg. Die eenheid waarin ons gebly het was netjies, skoon en bevat alles wat nodig is vir kosmaak. Elke eenheid het sy eie braai-area en die swembad is byderhand vir daardie ekstra ontspanning. Die kinders het gou gewoond geraak aan die swak selfoonnetwerk en na dag twee het dit nie eens meer gepla nie. Baie dankie aan Jaques wat altyd behulpsaam en vriendelik was. By Bananien kry jy presies wat hulle adverteer en dit teen goeie waarde vir geld. Ons sal definitief weer soontoe gaan.

Quite a lovely getaway.

My three siblings and I stayed there for 3 days. The place was lovely, it has majestic views. We interacted a lot with Jacques, he was very friendly. I will definitely be staying there again. The cabins are quite lovely but really have the minimum basics as told on their website. Do bring all your small essentials e.g. coffee and snacks. The place is also quite close to everything, it is perfectly located. Yes, network and WiFi connections dampen it a bit but it is worth it staying there.

Nice stop over, value for money.

We stopped for two nights on the way to Kruger and on the way back, group of 5 with two kids. Accommodation is not luxurious but it has everything you need, kitchen plates, pots, cutlery etc. Accommodation in the wooden cabin was on the basic side but spacious and comfortable. Nice garden with braai stands. Owners friendly. Two main drawbacks: no mobile phone reception (I know it's not the owner's fault but it's a problem) and the pool was not maintained, water was murky and with frogs in it (if you travel with kids this is important). Overall good value for money, got what I expected and would go back, but a little more attention to detail would go a long way (bin liners, wood for braai, towels etc).

Bananien Lodge's response

Dear Daniela,

Thank you for the review.

In the last 3 cabins, we have just installed granite tops in the kitchen with new 2-plate hobs.

We are on premises and will always go and attend to a problem if it is reported to us.

Hope to see you soon again.

Regards,
Bananien Lodge

Pragtige omgewing, maar teleurstellende verblyf!

Die wooneenheid nr. 3 waarin ons gebly het, het dringende opknapping nodig en dit is ook so gemeld aan die personeel wat aan diens was, aangesien die eienaars nie tuis was nie. Die volgende het o.a. dringende aandag nodig: Badkamer - badkraan stukkend, toiletbank stukkend, eenlaag baie swak en dun toiletpapier! Geen seep in houer. Kombuis: geen mop of skoppie, geen opwasseep of vadoek, sponsie (na aanvraag daarvoor is 'n geskeurde, gevlekte vadoek en seep wat nie wou skuim aan ons verskaf). Braaipan is gedaan, vuil en skeefgetrek. Tweeplaatstoof was stadig en 'n gesukkel om spek en eiers in te bak. Slaaparea: Dubbelbedmatras en beddegoed is gedaan. Matjies voor bed was vuil. Sondag is geen skoonmaakdienste verskaf nie en na navraag was die verskoning dat hulle vergeet het om ons daaroor in te lig. Nie aangename verblyf en ook nie 'n plek wat ons vir iemand sal aanbeveel nie. Beslis nie op standaard in vergelyking met soortgelyke verblyf en prysklas in daardie omgewing nie.

Bananien Lodge's response

Skoon, vriendelik, sentraal.

Die huisie was skoon met warm water, tuin is pragtig. Die plek het groot onderhoud nodig. Trappies op en van die reling op stoep se hout moet dalk vervang word. Van die hout in die vloer en badkamer het al weggetrek en daar kom 'n koue luggie deur. In die somer sal dit geen probleem wees nie. Geen wynglase nie. Kragprop agter yskas moet herstel of vervang word. Ongemaklik met net 1 prop vir ketel, mikrogolf en stofie.

Bananien Lodge's response

Hi Truna
Dankie vir die review.
Die hout wat wegtrek is as gevolg van die baie nat weer wat ons in die somer gehad het en nou is die winter weer baie droog. Sal definitief daarna kyk asook die ander probleme wat jy noem. Hout wat stukkend is, is reeds op al die eenhede vervang.
Ons is besig met onderhoud op al die eenhede en sal jou graag weer wil verwelkom by Bananien Lodge.

Bananien Lodge's response

Kan ek net verneem waarna u verwys as u sê die plek is in "bad" kondisie met geen onderhoud? Dit sal dit makliker maak om reg te maak as ek weet waarvan gepraat word. Die gaste is persoonlik deur die eienares uitgeboek waar geen melding gemaak is van probleme wat hulle ondervind het nie. Dit spyt ons dat dit nou eers deur middel van die agentskap aan ons gemeld word, terwyl die probleem moontlik dadelik aangespreek kon word.

Thank you for helping in making our holiday a memorable one. Your hospitality was awesome.

A warm friendly greeting met us and throughout our stay we felt our needs were their primary focus, from the cleaning of the pool to their concern regarding our safety when we had to evacuate due to a fire threatening our safety. We were treated like family, rather than guests.

Dit was 'n aangename ervaring vir ons en veral die kinders wat die oop spasies geniet het.

Bananien is perfek vir 'n naweekwegbreek van die gejaag van werk. Die feit dat daar geen TV was nie, was nie eers gemis nie en die kinders was meer behep met buite wees, wat goed is. Dit is ook sentraal geleë vir "sight seeing" en Sabie is net a klipgooi daarvandaan. Sal dit beslis oorweeg 'n volgende keer.

Bananien het ten volle aan ons behoeftes voldoen!

Ons het min tyd by die lodge spandeer, basies net daar geslaap. Alles was skoon en netjies en het perfek voldoen aan alles wat ons nodig gehad het. Enigste probleem was die 2-plaatstofie. Ons wou vinnig ontbyt maak maar die stofie is baie stadig. Het dit later toegeskryf as 'n slegte ervaring en gaan ontbyt eet. Verder NIKS om oor te kla nie.

Heerlike, snoesige houthuisies met 'n pragtige uitsig.

Bananien is naby Sabie geleë wat dit maklik maak om heen en weer te ry. Geen TV nie (positief), en oorgenoeg speelplek vir die kinders op die reuse grasperke. Die huisies is klein, maar ruim genoeg om heerlik te kuier. Die badkamer is afgeskort, maar die dak is oop, wat ongemaklike situasies tot gevolg kan hê. Dis naby die pad geleë, maar daar is min verkeer en amper geen swaar voertuie wat 'n groot geraas maak nie. Dis ook gemaklik om die kinders rondom die swembad te kan dophou vanaf die huisie se dek. Dis goeie waarde vir geld (veral met die afslag) en ons sal weer kom en vriende saambring.

They need to install a TV in each unit. That is all the units need, it is so cozy, we loved it.

Bananien Lodge's response

Hi Cornelia
Dankie vir die positiewe terugvoer, dit word waardeer.
Ons wil egter nie TV's in die eenhede sit nie want dit sal die rustigheid versteur.
Ons is besig om die probleem met die Lapa se TV wag net op die agent op Sabie.

It was excellent experience.

The only problem was that there is no network for cellphones, WiFi and TV, except at my place. The location is great. Our group was quite happy.

Bananien Lodge's response

Dear Syed,

Thank you for your review for Bananien Lodge. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again in the near future.

The cellphones is a bit of a problem due to the location of Bananien Lodge in the mountains. We are busy seeking advice to solve the problem but it seems to be a very expensive exercise to put up a system for Wi-Fi. If we still had a Telkom service it would not have been a problem.

Thank you again for your support.

Kindest regards,
Pieter Nortje

Baie dankie!

Was heerlik in die natuur en sonder TV, dit laat die kinders bietjie die natuur geniet en nie heeldag TV kyk nie. Dit is wat Bananien Lodge so besonders maak, dit bring jou terug na realiteit. Julle is awesome en lewer baie goeie diens.

Bananien Lodge's response

Hi Beverley,
Baie dankie vir die terugvoer, dit is goed vir ons harte om te weet dat julle dit geniet het hier by ons. Dit wat jy noem is wat ons graag wil regkry, en dit is die rede ook vir die oop plan sodat kinders en ouers mekaar ook kan geniet sonder 'n tv wat pla.
Baie dankie weereens en hoop om julle binnekort weer te sien.

Groete van Bananien span.

Baie geniet, rustig, mooi en skoon.

Vir die prys wat ek betaal het, was dit baie lekker. Ek sal net die volgende voorstel: Gee vir elke verblyfeenheid 'n afstandbeheer vir die hek en verhoog die sleuteldeposito. Verbeter die algemene veiligheid van die chalet/rondawel. Die deur kon amper oopmaak sonder 'n sleutel. Die mikrogolfrak in die rondawel is nie op 'n veilige plek nie. 'n Mens stamp jou kop as jy inloop. Kry moontlik 'n TV.

Bananien Lodge's response

Goeie Dag Tony,

Dankie vir die terugvoer, ek waardeer dit baie want dit help ons om die standaarde te verhoog. Die afstandbeheer vir die hek word juis nie uitgegee nie as gevolg van veiligheid. Gaste vergeet om die hek toe te maak of maak nie seker dat hek wel toe is nie, of hulle bring ander vriende wat nie bespreek het nie en dit veroorsaak 'n oorvol lodge met raserige gaste. Ek sal kyk wat ek kan verbeter aan die deur en die mikrogolfrak skuif. Ons sal egter nie 'n TV kan insit nie.

Groete,
Pieter Nortje

By Bananien het ons vinnig teruggekom aarde toe en vir die eerste keer in 'n lang tyd het ek en my man en ons 2 dogtertjies met mekaar gesit en gesels en saam gespeel. Dit was 'n awesome bonding experience en om van die natuur nie eers te praat nie. Jacques en Marni het ook kom koffie drink soos ou vriende en dit was baie spesiaal.

Nie vir ons as gesin met jong kinders bedoel nie.

Die huisie is netjies, maar ongemaklik warm. Van die ligte het nie gewerk nie. GEEN vermaak vir jong kinders nie, nie binne die huisie met 'n TV of buite met 'n klimraam of speelgeriewe nie. Ons sal Bananien nie gou weer besoek of aanbeveel by vriende met jong kinders nie.

Daar is vele redes hoekom ons nie tevrede was met ons verblyf by Bananien Lodge nie!

Die foto's is misleidend. Ons was al teleurgesteld toe ons by die hek inry. Die bestuurder het ons ook nie goed behandel toe ons dit onder sy aandag bring dat ons nie gelukkig is met sekere dinge daar nie.

Ek sal nie weer die lodge besoek nie ... Die diens is stadig en die veiligheid is belaglik.

Die huisies is hopeloos te klein vir 3 volwassenes en 'n kind. Die feit dat daar net een badkamer is, maak die geriewe ongemaklik vir soveel mense. Die veiligheid by die lodge is belaglik, my kind en kleinkind is beroof en dis duidelik waar die rowers in- en uitgegaan het! Personeel voel hulle veiligheid is op standaard.

Ons sal verseker weer van hul diens gebruik maak.

Bananien Lodge is sentraal geleë wat dit 'n goeie opsie maak vir oornag verblyf indien jy die Panorama roete wil doen. Ons is vriendelik verwelkom, die eienaars en personeel was hoflik en behulpsaam. Eenheid is netjies en die nodige items is tot jou beskikking. Die padgeraas vroeg oggend het bietjie gepla, maar dit mag dalk net wees aangesien ons nie daaraan gewoond is nie. Die swembad se rante het bietjie alge maar die water was skoon.

Beautiful accomodation

Accommodation is beautiful and it's close to all the major tourist attractions which makes life convenient. Customer service however, was non-existent. They never once checked that their guests were okay, see if they needed anything or asked if they were enjoying themselves. Some of the other guests at the same time as we were, said their feelings were mutual on this point - they also wanted more customer service from the people who ran the lodge (A basic check-up on your guests is expected at a TGCSA 3-star rated place)

Baie mooi omgewing.

Die plek het baie potensiaal en ek glo die houthutte is mooi ingerig. Ons was effe teleurgestel in die plek waar ons gewoon het (slaapplek vir 6-8) met 'n toilet wat nie gewerk het by ons aankoms nie, en bergfietsroetes geadverteer maar toe nie beskikbaar nie. Die diens was egter baie vriendelik. Ons voel net die plek se potensiaal kan soveel beter benut word. Sabie is 'n pragtige dorp en ons sal weer terugkeer maar is ons is onseker of ons van dieselfde verblyf gebruik sal maak. Ons het egter die omgewing baie geniet. Ons het by Merry Pebbles gaan fietsry op die ou einde. Dit was lieflik daar. Baie dankie.
