Lacking in comfort.

There are no comfy chairs to sit on with a small table to put your tea on. No rusks with morning coffee. Only 1 bedside lamp for 2 beds. Not enough liquid handsoap. No TV.

Pragtige huis en meubels.

Conville is ongeveer 2 km buite Aliwal Noord geleë. Ondanks die inligting op die webwerf word etes nie verskaf nie, nie eers met vooraf bespreking nie.

Deftige behuising op 'n pragtige plaas.

Hierdie deftige woning is op 'n plaas net langs Aliwal-Noord geleë. Die eienaars was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die huis het 'n baie interessante en ryk geskiedenis met pragtige afwerkings en antieke meubelstukke. Die ontbyt was smaaklik en ons het op die plaas gaan stap tot by die rivier. Dis net 'n jammerte ons kon net een aand bly en sal regtig graag weer terug wil gaan vir 'n langer besoek.

Peace and quiet.

Conville House offers visitors the opportunity to spend time in a grand old house in a quiet and secluded area just a few kilometres from the centre of Aliwal North.

Sir Herbert Baker argitektuur; pragtige meubels uit vervloë dae in plaasatmosfeer.

Die gebou is is ongeveer 112 jaar oud en die tekens van ouderdom is orals sigbaar. Ten spyte daarvan is dit steeds die moeite werd om daar te oornag.

Vreemde maar wonderlike ervaring.

By aankoms het ons maar baie skepties na die opset gekyk en gewonder of ons die regte besluit geneem het om daar te slaap. Agterkant van gebou het meer gelyk na n gebou uit 'n Dracula fliek. Toe ons eers die voorkant, binnekant en ons kamer sien was dit egter 'n ander siening. Die verblyf was aangenaam, mense baie vriendelik en die ontbyt heerlik. Die huis aan die binnekant uit die klassieke era van swaar hout venters, deurkosyne en meubels. Iets wat 'n mens nie meer alledaags sien nie.

Aliwal North home of character.

We enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing overnight stay at the lovely Conville B&B on the outskirts of Aliwal North. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated, with a comfortable brass-bed. Yes, as some have suggested, the building is a little “tired” looking, but in our opinion that can be forgiven, given it’s age. It’s a gracious stay, with furnishings to match. We were charmed, and would not hesitate to stay again in this beautiful home.

Fantasties.

Dit is 'n statige ou huis (1908) wat pragtig opgeknap is, baie ruim elkeen met eie buitedeur en badkamer. Die omgewing bied rustigheid en stilte soos net 'n plaas kan bied. Diens is uitstekend, selfs 'n wegneemontbyt gekry aangesien ons vroeg wou ry.

Old world charm

Lovely home which has been in the family for 3 generations and has all the charm of a bygone era. Although there are no "mod-cons" the furnishings are probably original and the rooms were comfortable. The hostess was friendly and informative and breakfast in the lovely dining room was a treat.

Pragtige ou huis met pragtige antieke meubelstukke.

Dis 'n pragtige geskiedkundige ou huis en mooi toegerus. Die kamer is toegerus met pragtige antieke meubelstukke, maar 'n bietjie stowwerig. Die tuin lyk effens onversorg - moontlik as gevolg van die afgelope droogte. Beslis goeie waarde vir geld.

A lovely experience.

It was a lovely, old worldly experience, with all the glory you'd expect from it. The house and furniture have been looked after with such care. The history of the place is remembered and relayed with love and appreciation by the original family. It truly was an honour that the family were willing to share these precious stories with guests. The time just went by too fast. Thank you very much and thank you to LekkeSlaap for excellent service rendered.

'n Heerlike ervaring.

Dit was 'n heerlike, outydse ervaring met al die glorie daarvan. Die huis en meubels is so goed en met sorg bewaar. Die geskiedenis van die plek word met liefde en waardering deur die oorspronklike familie bewoon en oorvertel. Dit is werklik 'n voorreg dat die familie bereid is om so 'n kosbaarheid met die gaste te deel. Die tydjie daar glip net te gou verby. Baie dankie. Dankie ook aan LekkeSlaap vir uitstekende diens gelewer.

Unkempt.

We arrived when it was bitterly cold. Chopped wood lay by the gate and we made a fire in the hearth. We were then told that no fires were allowed in the rooms, but they had fireplaces! There were 2 rooms and we were 3 guests. The main bedroom was decorated with dusty and skew family portraits. The other room had 2 iron beds from the concentration camps. I looked for more blankets in the cupboard and discovered a bric-a-brac shop full of many blankets and things. I was told that there was no water available, but as soon as it was available they would put on the geyser. We went to go eat and was away for 2 to 3 hours. When we got back nothing had been done about the hot water situation and I want to know why the problem wasn't sorted out when wer were gone. The hostess suggested that we find different accommodation. We already paid though and wrote it off as a terrible experience. The morning we were told that the geyser was broken. We had to use a kettle to get hot water so we could wash. The house is falling apart and has terrible cracks and it desperately needs a good dusting. As you drive there you see the untidiness of the place with the camper under a tree. It is clear that this place needs to be renovated and that the owners cannot keep it in a good condition. They should not be letting it to guests.

Onversorg.

Ons het arriveer toe dit baie koud was. Daar lê gekapte hout by die hek en ons voorsien 'n kaggelvuur. Ons word ontnugter dat daar geen vure in die kamers toegelaat word nie, daar is kaggels! Daar is twee kamers, ons was drie gaste. Die hoofslaapkamer is versier met stowwerige en skewe familieportrette - die ander kamer het twee konsentrasiekamp ysterkatels. Ek soek meer komberse in die kas en word oorval deur 'n negosiewinkel vol allerlei komberse en goeters. Ons word meegedeel dat daar nie water is nie en sodra die water beskikbaar is sal die warmwatertoestel aangeskakel word. Ons gaan eet en is 2 - 3 ure weg, met die terugkoms is daar nog niks gedoen aan die warm water nie en ek wil graag weet waarom die probleem nie opgelos ten tye van ons afwesigheid nie. Gasvrou stel voor ons kry ander akkommodasie! Reeds betaal en ons skryf dit af as 'n erge ondervinding - die oggend word ons meegedeel die warmwatertoestel is gebreek. Ketel met warm water om te was. Die huis val uitmekaar met erge krake, daar is dringende afstof nodig. As jy daar inry sien jy die onnet omgewing met 'n kamper onder 'n boom. Dit is duidelik dat die plek moet opgeknap word en dat die eienaars dit nie in stand kan hou nie en nie moet uitverhuur as gasteverblyf nie.
