Dankie!

Jonathan se gasvryheid is eg. Ek is selfs met 'n heerlike sjokoladekoek tydens ontbyt verras, omdat dit my verjaarsdag was! Huishouding en diens is uitstekend.

Thank you!

Jonathan's hospitality is genuine. I was even surprised with a delicious chocolate cake during breakfast, because it was my birthday! Housekeeping and service are excellent.

Daar is niks om te doen nie, moet iewers ry as jy iets wil sien of doen.

Baie luukse dinge in die B&B wat glad nie gebruik word nie.

There is nothing to do, have to drive somewhere if you want to see or do something.

Many luxury things in the B&B that are not used at all.

Baie gemaklik, baie netjies en ongelooflike kos.

Die eienaar het ons verblyf regtig spesiaal gemaak. Hulle het ons opgegradeer sonder enige kostes na 'n beter kamer toe. Jonathan gaan regtig uit sy pad uit om alles vir jou so spesiaal as moontlik te maak. Niks te veel moeite nie en hy is altyd beskikbaar. Sy kos is uit boonste rakke!

The owner made our stay really special. They upgraded us to a better room at no charge. Jonathan really goes out of his way to make everything as special as possible for you. Nothing too much trouble and he is always available. His food is top notch!

Groot teleurstelling.

So 'n interessante plek en die eienaar vreeslik vriendelik toe ons daar aankom. Klein probleempies op die onderhoud kant, soos ligte wat nie werk nie en stukkende deurknop. Die gebrek aan pakplek maak Benguela ongeskik vir meer as een nag se oorbly. Wat skokkend was, is die eienaar se algehele gebrek aan simpatie of hulpverlening. Ek het op die ingang se trappe geval en my knie gebreek. Dit was a. g. v. drie goed: Geen beligting by ingang, geen handreling en 'n boonste trap met 'n "lippie" waar my voet vasgehaak het. Ek het na 1 in die nag teruggekom van die hospitaal af. Was in soveel pyn dat ek ander gaste wakker gemaak het, maar van die eienaar was daar geen sig nie. Ons moes die tweede dag in Gansbaai (en die res van ons toer) kanselleer om by 'n Kaapstad spesialis uit te kom. Nie alleen het Benguela nie aangebied om ons te vergoed vir die dag se tariewe wat ons nie gebruik het nie, maar het my R50 gevra vir 'n nougat uit die yskas. Werklik? Hoe kleinlik en geldgierig kan 'n mens wees. Dis nou 'n week later en ek het nog nie weer 'n piep van Benguela gehoor nie. As iemand beseer word op my perseel sou ek ten minste die foon opgetel het om te hoor hoe dit gaan. Nie by hierdie plek nie. It's all about the money, honey.

Big disappointment.

Such an interesting place and the owner very friendly when we got there. Small problems on the maintenance side, such as lights that don't work and a broken door knob. The lack of luggage space makes Benguela unsuitable for more than one night's stay. What was shocking is the owner's complete lack of sympathy or assistance. I fell on the entrance steps and broke my knee. It was a. g. f. three things: No lighting at the entrance, no handrail and an upper step with a "lip" where my foot got stuck. I came back from the hospital after 1 in the night. Was in so much pain that I woke up other guests, but there was no sign of the owner. We had to cancel the second day in Gansbaai (and the rest of our tour) to get to a Cape Town specialist. Not only did Benguela not offer to compensate us for the day's rates we did not use, but asked me R50 for a nougat from the fridge. Really? How petty and greedy one can be. It's now a week later and I still haven't heard a peep from Benguela. If someone was injured on my premises I would at least have picked up the phone to find out how they were doing. Not at this place. It's all about the money, honey.

'n Spesiale en baie unieke wegbreek met 'n pragtige uitsig.

Ons tyd by Benguela was heerlike bederf. Addisioneel tot die pragtige verblyf en die baie mooi gastehuis is daar besonderse klein detail wat ons tyd by Benguela baie spesiaal gemaak het. Die kamers is pragtig met besonderse dekor en uitstekende kwaliteit, die uitsig is baie mooi. Waar jy jou draai is daar 'n besonderse stukkie dekor wat jou verblyf by Benguela 'n baie spesiale ervaring maak. Die ontbyt in die bed was ongelooflik lekker en uitspattig bedien. Wat 'n pragtige plek met 'n baie warm ontvangs.

Our time at Benguela was a lovely treat. In addition to the beautiful accommodation and the very nice guesthouse, there are extraordinary little details that made our time at Benguela very special.

Wherever you turn there is a special piece of decor that makes your stay at Benguela a very special experience. The breakfast in the bed was incredibly delicious and extravagantly served. What a beautiful place with a very warm welcome.
