Very comfy farm stay.

We did not actually stay over on our return trip back from the Kruger due to the unrest that started up in the country, but I give this review based on the night we spent going up to Kruger. We were very happy with the accommodation and the owners were very happy to help with requests for braai's etc. that we had. Well worth the money they ask.

Plaas-gasvryheid. Silwerskoon, baie goeie matras, warm water. Niks meer nodig nie.

Goeie diens. Gasvrou het my op hoogte gebring van ligging. Alles was silwerskoon en ons het heerlik geslaap.

Very comfortable, rustic, farm cottage.

The hosts were extremely friendly and did their best to fulfill all our requirements. I would definitely use them as a stay over again. The only negative is that the stove in our cottage needs new hinges on the door but apart from that no complaints. It is on a farm so don't expect 5-star accommodation.

Baie lekker gebly maar ...

Dit kan 'n fantastiese plek wees. Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang, lekker gerus na 'n lang dag en al is dit op 'n plaas het ons veilig gevoel. Maar daar is 'n paar dinge wat pla. Die stort se glaspanele was vuil (gevlek), agter is 'n baie lekker privaat stoepie maar die gras was lank en daar was siggaretstompies orals. Weet dit is op 'n plaas en daar moet stof wees maar 2 matjies voor die beddens sal 'n groot verskil maak. Daar is kofie- en teemaakgeriewe maar niks melk nie. Daar is 'n bed lampie langs die bed maar kon dit nie gebruik het nie want dit het 'n tweepuntprop en geen tweepuntprop in die muur beskikbaar nie.

Aangename verblyf op 'n plaaswerf met die klanke en reuke van 'n beesplaas.

Ons verblyf was aangenaam met onderdakparkering redelik naby die kamers. Die kamers is goed uitgerus met alles wat nodig is. Ongelukkig was die kamers nie behoorlik skoongemaak nie. Baie stowwerig. Die badkamer is baie gerieflik en groot genoeg maar het ernstige onderhoud en verf nodig aan die plafon. Dit het glad nie 'n goeie indruk geskep met verf wat orals afdop nie. Die slaapkamer is lekker groot en die bed baie gemaklik. Hier was die gordyn 'n oogseer. Te lank en nie behoorlik gehang nie. Die sementtafel en -bankies buite is baie handig, maar ons kon dit bedags skaars gebruik. Dit moet onderdak kom vir beskerming teen son en reën. Ten spyte van al die negatiewe kommentaar het ons nogtans lekker gebly en die gasheer is baie behulpsaam.

'n Aangename ervaring wat bestaan het uit 'n warm ontvangs, gerieflike fasiliteite, en die plaaslewe op jou voorstoep.

Buffalo River Self-catering is waarlik waarde vir geld. Ons het maklik tuis gevoel. Die plekkie is goed ingerig met 'n heerlike groot bed met 'n knus duvet en genoeg komberse vir die koudste wintersnag. Die private braaiarea agter was ook 'n lekker pluspunt.

Clean and tidy.

Will stay there again, received very kindly and the room was tidy and clean, what bothered me was that there is no security door and on the way to the room I would suggest putting in a pavement, at the moment you're walking on broken cement blocks and it damages the appearance of the room.

Skoon en netjies.

Sal weer daar bly baie vriendelik ontvang en die kamer was netjies en skoon, wat pla is daar is geen veiligheidsdeur en op pad na die kamer sou ek voorstel dat plaveisel ingesit word, op die hede loop mens oor gebreekte sementblokke, dit breek af aan die voorkoms van die kamer.

Awesome and accommodating - just needed a good clean.

The hostess accommodated our autistic son in our room and was super friendly and hospitable. The facilities were more than sufficient considering what we needed. It was just such a pity that the room and bathroom and kitchen hadn't been cleaned properly in a long time. The linen was fresh but the shower caddy had soap caked to it, the floors were sticky and everything was covered in a layer of dust and grime.
