Ou area, ou gebou, redelik versorg en veilig, baie klein kamers, swak WiFi.

Ek het 'n enkelkamer vir een aand bespreek. Die kamer was baie klein en waarskynlik slegs geskik vir 'n enkele nag se akkommodasie. Dit was mooi skoon, die lugversorging en TV werk goed. WiFi kon nie verbind nie, niemand het die wagwoord geken nie, en die een wat vertoon is, was foutief. Die kombuis en sitkamer was gedeel deur al die kamers.

Old area, old building, quite well maintained and safe, very small rooms, poor WiFi.

I booked a single room for one night. The room was very small and probably only suitable for a single night's accommodation. It was nice and clean, the air conditioning and TV work well. WiFi couldn't connect, no one knew the password, and the one displayed was wrong. The kitchen and living room were shared by all the rooms.

Perfectly needed after a day of travelling, thank you.

Enjoyed it immensely. Staff polite, friendly, and courteous. Facilities clean and presentable. Loved the area, not noisy or busy. Safe and secure parking, especially for a transporter. He will be back again, thank you.

Horrible, waste of money, did not get what was expected.

We accepted the lack of water as it was not the lodge's fault, however, when a customer must ask for water, the complete time of your stay without water is not on. We didn't get the breakfast that was advertised as we were told that they don't do it anymore due to Covid. I feel that this should of been made clear on date of booking. We booked the honeymoon suite as it was advertised with roses and champagne, yet, on arrival, the room was still not cleaned and sorted out, with only one glass and only one knife, 2 plates with one plate chipped. I ended up buying my own champagne and requested glasses for it. We received sticky glasses. The beds where not made correctly each day. All and all it was a good weekend as we were out most of the time. However, I am not happy with the accommodation.

Oor die algemeen tevrede met die ondervinding. Grootste pluspunt was die vriendelike en behulpsame mense van die gastehuis.

Die kamers was ruim en goed toegerus en alles het gewerk. Ontbyt (opsioneel) was gemiddeld, maar relatief goedkoop. Toegang tot die gastehuis was maklik - ons kon kom en gaan soos ons wil. Bestuur en werkers was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Areas om te verbeter: Voorbereiding vir beurtkrag (loadshedding) en kamers sonder vensters (vertrek baie donker). Gastehuis is nie vir BTW geregistreer nie.

Overall satisfied with the experience. The biggest plus point was the friendly and helpful people of the guest house.

The rooms were spacious and well equipped and everything worked. Breakfast (optional) was average, but relatively cheap. Access to the guesthouse was easy - we could come and go as we pleased. Management and workers were very friendly and helpful. Areas to improve: Preparation for loadshedding and rooms without windows (room very dark). Guesthouse is not registered for VAT.

Had a very cosy and relaxed night will call again. The lady responsible had a very warm welcome and a friendly attitude.

A very nice and private place to be if you want time to yourself and it is also very conducive for group visits. Its close proximity to most interesting places makes it very convenient.

Baie lekker en veilig.

Ek en my kind het alleen afgery vir 'n gala. Veiligheid en ligging was vir ons baie belangrik. Ons was naby aan die Kingspark Stadion se swembad en het veilig en rustig geslaap. Uitstekende diens en vriendelike personeel. Ek kan dit vir enige iemand aanbeveel.

Waarde vir geld.

Baie dankie vir goeie verbly. Die kamer het al ons verwagtings oortref. Daar was nie koffiegeriewe in die kamer nie, maar die gebruik van die volledig toegeruste kombuis het opgemaak daarvoor. Pam was 'n baie goeie gasvrou. Die badkamer is pragtig. Kan definitief die plek aanbeveel. Baie sentraal en net 'n paar km van Durban se hawe af. Baie dankie. Dis 'n pragtige plek.

Thank you very much for a good stay. The room exceeded all our expectations. There were no coffee facilities in the room, but the use of the fully equipped kitchen made up for that. Pam was a very good hostess. The bathroom is beautiful. Can definitely recommend the place. Very central and only a few km from Durban's harbour. Thank you very much. It's a beautiful place.

Aanwysings verwarrend, bietjie vuil.

Die aanwysings op die webblad is verwarrend. Ontvangs was sigbaar ontevrede toe ons die hoofhek gebruik. Die ingang is eintlik linksom in 'n klein straatjie. Die kamer is te klein vir 2 mense. Die vullisblik in die badkamer is vuil aan die buitekant. Die vullisblik in die kombuis was onhigiënies. Die besoeker in die kamer langsaan blyk 'n semi-permanente inwoner te wees. Die yskas is vuil en vol "ou" kos. Ons wou nie die skoonmaakdiens gebruik nie. Die beddegoed was wonderlik, maar was dit skoon lakens waarop ons geslaap het? Dit was baie gekreukel die eerste aand. 'n Volledige straatkaart by ontvangs sou ons besoek vergemaklik het. Ek kon by geen winkel 'n kaart aankoop nie.

Directions confusing, bit dirty.

The directions on the web page are confusing. Reception was visibly displeased when we used the main gate. The entrance is actually to the left in a small street. The room is too small for 2 people. The garbage can in the bathroom is dirty on the outside. The garbage can in the kitchen was unsanitary. The visitor in the room next door appears to be a semi-permanent resident. The fridge is dirty and full of "old" food. We did not want to use the cleaning service. The bedding was great, but were they clean sheets we slept on? It was very wrinkled the first night. A full street map at reception would have made our visit easier. I could not buy a card from any store.
