A bit disappointed, but good.

We just stayed the 1 night, it was good, peaceful sleep, they said they provide food and it costs extra, but on arrival we had to enquire about the meal and they said they didn't provide meals at all and that we had to go to the corner where there's a place to eat. The food was very pleasant and the people friendly, but it was further than just walking to the corner. But we at least got something to eat. We didn't see or hear from the owner again before going to bed, he just showed us the room and left again. We were disappointed with him.

'n Bietjie teleurstellend, maar goed.

Ons het net 1 nag oorgebly, dit was goed, rustig geslaap, hul het gesê hul verskaf etes en dit kos ekstra, toe met ons aankoms daar het ons navraag gedoen oor die ete, hy sê nee hul voorsien nie etes nie, ons moet maar self na die hoek toe gaan, daar sal 'n plek wees om te eet. Die voedsel daar was baie aangenaam en die mense baie vriendelik, dit was toe verder as net die hoek om te stap. Maar ons het darem iets te ete gekry. Ons het nie weer die eienaar gesien of gehoor voor ons gaan slaap het nie, hy het net die kamer vir ons gewys en weer geloop. Ons was maar teleurgesteld in die man.

Dear Awie, thank you for your feedback. We appreciate both the positive and the negative so that we can improve our service.
We really apologize for the inconvenience that was caused due to the meal/dinner. We have since made contact with Travelground to update this service. It is only available by prior arrangement. Awie, with regards to the hosts presence with our guests we have found that, most guests prefer us to be available but to give them space, normally after check in we leave the guests to their own privacy. We then greet them at breakfast the next morning and this is where the social aspect normally comes into play. We wish you a great 2017 and many happy travels ahead. Warm Regards from John and Gail.

We stayed in the Fast Room and it is literally just sleep and go, which is beautiful and neat.

The hostess was very friendly and helpful and showed us everything and made recommendations seeing as how her husband had to undergo an operation the next day. The beach is just down the road and it is a nice walk. We had such a good night's sleep and was ready for the next day's journey.

Ons het die Fast Room gebruik en dit is letterlik net slaap en ry, wat mooi en netjies is.

Die gasvrou was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam en het alles vir ons gewys en aanbevelings gedoen aangesien haar man die volgende dag met operasie sou gaan. Die see is net met die straat af en dis 'n lekker stappie. Ons het heerlik geslaap en was reg vir die volgende dag se rit.

Beautiful!

Beautiful place with friendly owners! We had such a nice chat the next day we could hardly get away! Was a bit surprised that the room was in the house, but it didn't bother us too much. It was still private. The outdoor cats are very cute and I made friends with them all. Lovely place.

Pragtig!

Pragtige plekkie met vriendelike eienaars! Het so lekker gesels die volgende oggend, kon skaars daar wegkom. Was bietjie verras dat die kamer in die huis is, maar dit het glad nie gepla nie. Dit was steeds baie privaat. Die buite-katte is verskriklik oulik en ek het met almal maatjies gemaak. Lieflike plekkie.

Beste Ann-marie, baie dankie vir u pragtige resensie, dit word baie waardeer. Ons was verheug om te hoor dat julle julle verblyf geniet het. Ons hoop julle sal ons weer besoek as julle weer in ons deel van die land is, en hoop ook dat julle die res van jul vakansie in Mossel Baai sal geniet.
Beste wense van John en Gail.

Uit plek gevoel.

Die kamer was in die huis. Moet een badkamer deel. Katte het darem my geselskap gehou. Ver om te ry Oos-Londen toe om te werk. Ligging is meer vir vakansies en rugsakreisigers.

Coelacanth Guest House's response

Dear Michelle, firstly thank you for taking the time to write this review. We definitely value all constructive criticism as it only helps us to improve our business.
Michelle, with regards to your booking choice, you did choose our budget accommodation choice which is the cheapest we offer and falls just above a backpacking rate. This inexpensive choice has a shared bathroom, many guests prefer to make use of this alternative as during these financially challenging times it helps to keep their costs down. We apologise profusely that our cats were a nuisance and, in future, we will take every possible step to keep them away from our guests.
The area unfortunately, we are not able to change, Kidd's Beach can be clearly seen as situated 28 km from East London, this sadly we cannot change. We can only hope that guests continue to book with us and enjoy the peace and tranquillity, and the safety that the Village lifestyle brings to one. Michelle, we cannot apologise enough that you did not have a good experience with us. We will definitely address your concerns.
Have a wonderful day going forward.
Warm regards from John and Gail.
