Gerieflike akkommodasie in 'n mooi en rustige omgewing.

Ons het oornag by Barnyard en het die stilte en die skoonheid van die area geniet. Die akkommodasie het alles wat nodig is.

Goeie waarde vir geld.

In geheel sal ek beslis Barnyard Venue aanbeveel. Dit sou goed wees as hulle wel 'n opsie vir ontbyt sou insluit of 'n manier om kos te verhit, aangesien ons 'n paar keer heen en weer dorp toe moes ry vir kos, en daar was geen mikrogolf in die kamer om koue kos te verhit nie. Andersins was dit goeie waarde vir geld.

Good value for money.

Overall I would definitely recommend Barnyard Venue. It would be good if they did include an option for breakfast or a way to heat food as we had to drive back and forth to town for food a few times and there was no microwave in the room to keep cold food do not overheat. Otherwise it was good value for money.

Kamers was mooi skoon en ons het lekker geslaap.

Ons het gewonder oor veiligheid. Die plaashuis was met diefwering en hekke beveilig, ons het slegs 'n kamerdeur gehad wat kon sluit. Geen hekke ens.

We wondered about safety. The farmhouse was secured with burglar bars and gates, we only had a room door that could lock. No gates etc.

Swak.

Ons was in die kamer toe ons hoor daar gaan iets aan by ons bakkie. Daar gekom het die persone die leer losgemaak en afgehaal. Toe ons vra wat dink julle doen julle nou was die antwoord ons wil die leer gebruik vir foto's en goed te hang vir matriekafskeid. Dit is baie swak dat hulle nie eers probeer het om ons in die hande te kry en te vra nie. Die personeel het ook nie juis veel gehelp om hulle te stop nie. Dit is baie swak.

Weak.

We were in the room when we heard something going on with our bakkie. Once there, the persons untied the ladder and took it down. When we asked what do you think you are doing now, the answer was we want to use the ladder for photos and to hang things for matric farewell. It's very poor that they didn't even try to get hold of us and ask. The staff didn't do much to stop them either. It is very weak.

Dit was ‘n situasie wat buite ons beheer was. Ons, die personeel, was nie bewus van wat gebeur het nie en het geen toestemming gegee aan die skool om die leer te gebruik nie. Ons vra onverskoning.

The Barnyard is geared for weddings and not casual guests.

The room was advertised with a bar fridge which it did not have. There was no means to keep the room warm nor any alternative lighting provided during loadshedding. The lawns were covered in pig poop and the lady who welcomed us was minimalistic in her duties.

Hi Alison, I’m sorry this was your experience. Room 6 was not advertised with a bar fridge and all of our beds are equipped with electric blankets for the winter nights. We usually have battery lights in each room for load shedding, it was probably misplaced in another room, sorry about that.

Oornag.

Ongelukkig het ons nie die spesifieke kamers gekry wat ons bespreek het nie, aanvanklik koue water en die verwarmer kon nie werk op die koue reënerige dag nie. Anders as vir dit, het ons 'n baie vriendelike verwelkoming gekry, netjies en gemaklike kamers, en die warmkomberse was 'n lekker verrassing!

Unfortunately we didn't get the specific rooms we booked, initially cold water and the heater couldn't work on the cold rainy day. Other than that, we got a very friendly welcome, neat and comfortable rooms, and the warm blankets were a nice surprise!
