Onaangenaam.

Nee glad nie, wat 'n teleurstelling. Geen warm water beskikbaar gewees nie. Die bad was sonder 'n prop, breekware en ketel was ongelooflik vuil. Boonop was die eienaar baie onbeskof. Hierdie plek sien ons nooit weer nie.

Unpleasant.

No not at all, what a disappointment. No hot water was available. The bath was without a plug, crockery and kettle were incredibly dirty. In addition, the owner was very rude. We never see this place again.

Die plek sien my nooit weer.

Die wasbak proppe in die kombuis werk nie en ek het gesukkel om skottelgoed te was. Die aircon werk ook nie. Die eienaar is ongelooflik ongeskik en het geen voorsiening gemaak vir loadshedding nie. Ek moes totaal en al in die donker wees. Daar was 'n misverstand met die bespreking. Dit was vir 2 mense en moes eintlik vir 3 mense gewees het. Ek het geen probleem gehad om die verskil te betaal nie, maar die eienaar kon die situasie beter hanteer het en mens nie soos 'n skelm laat voel nie. Ek moes ook kla voor hulle die plek kom skoonmaak het. Die eenheid kort definitief aandag en 'n ordentlike skoonmaak. Ek wil graag Alice bedank, sy was baie aangenaam en het regtig haar bes probeer om die omstandighede beter te maak. So 'n groot dankie aan haar.

The place never sees me again.

The sink plugs in the kitchen don't work and I struggled to wash dishes. The aircon doesn't work either. The owner is incredibly incompetent and made no provision for load shedding. I had to be totally in the dark. There was a misunderstanding with the reservation. It was for 2 people and should actually have been for 3 people. I had no problem paying the difference, but the owner could have handled the situation better and not made you feel like a crook. I also had to complain before they came to clean the place. The unit definitely needs attention and a decent cleaning. I would like to thank Alice, she was very pleasant and really tried her best to make the situation better. Such a big thank you to her.

Was privaat en beste ontvangs.

Die eienaar het my vroeër laat inboek en die aankoms en ontvangs was baie goed gewees. Die tuinwoonstel-eenheid is privaat en goed geleë.

It was sufficient for one night, but.

It was adequate for one night, but we would not stay there again. The room was up in the roof, deadly hot and not enough fan or aircon to cool it down. The children's bunk beds were also up in the roof and the safety around the stairs was not sufficient. we preferred to let them sleep on the sofa below. The shower was also broken and no water flowed. None of us could take a shower and just went "veil" home and took a shower at home. There are also no back-up lights for when the power goes out during loadshedding.

Baie lekker en vriendelike mense. Lekker om min gesteur te word en goeie plek as jy net wil asem haal. Enigste ding wat 'n las was, was die proses om die water te laat werk bo in die toring en moes 'n paar keer op en af hardloop en lang tye wag vir die water om te werk. Die bad se prop kon ook nie uitgehaal word nie en kon net een keer gebruik word. Andersins baie lekker ervaring.

Kan dalk 'n pompstelsel installeer vir die water vir die toring.

Very nice and friendly people. Nice to be little disturbed and good place if you just want to breathe. Only thing that was a burden was the process of getting the water to work at the top of the tower and had to run up and down several times and wait long periods for the water to work. The tub's plug could not be removed either and could only be used once. Otherwise very nice experience.

Might install a pumping system for the water for the tower.

Hi Christian
Dankie vir die terugvoer.
Ja, die toring is baie hoog so die water vat 'n ruk om op druk te kom as die pomp af was.
Die bad werk met 'n Nikki Spout waar jy die uitlaat se knop moet draai om die prop oop en toe te maak. Ek is jammer, my mense moes dalk vir jou dit uit gewys het.
Groete

Sou verkies het om elke dag skoon handdoeke te kry. Die dame wat ons ingeteken het, Portia het nooit 'n masker gedra nie, want onaanvaarbaar is. Dankie.

Relaxed with space and nature.

Craigiva, amazing staff with a warm welcome. in the lovely rain. We enjoyed space, comfort, and the garden's heaven. Comfortable beds, good linen, lovely bathrooms and the living area perfect. Close by parking, easy access and the location is 100%. My granddaughter enjoyed the 2nd bedroom with en-suite. This is so comfortable. I am looking forward to book again.

Mooi uitsig.

Ons het die kort tyd baie geniet. Daar was egter 'n paar klein knaagpunte. Die breekware in die kas was vuil met ons aankoms, en daar was 'n gordynhakkie tussen die laken en matras wat nogal 'n gespook was om uit te kry. Verder was daar nie klagtes nie, en die uitsig is fantasties.

Nice view.

We really enjoyed the short time. However, there were a few minor gripes. The crockery in the cupboard was dirty when we arrived, and there was a curtain hook between the sheet and mattress which was quite a spook to get out. Other than that, there were no complaints, and the view is fantastic.

Onprofessioneel. Nooit weer.

Bespreking was vir gesin van 4. Sou graag foto van kamer se uitleg wou sien. Geen ontvangsarea. Dame wat ons ontvang het was ongeskik en praat slegs Engels. 2 halwe toiletrolle, 2 bekers en slegs 4 suiker. Baie stof, net voorlangs skoon. Bad lek. Vir gesin van 4 is daar nie genoeg handdoeke, maar slegs 2 badhanddoeke waarvan een nog gehang het langs stort en baie vuil was. Ons omstandighede het genoodsaak om slegs 1 aand oor te slaap, maar indien die gastehuis beter was sou ons maklik langer gebly het.

Unprofessional. Never again.

Reservation was for family of 4. Would love to have seen a photo of the room layout. No reception area. Lady who received us was rude and speaks only English. 2 half toilet rolls, 2 cups and only 4 sugars. Lots of dust, just cleaned superficially. Bath leaks. For a family of 4 there are not enough towels, only 2 bath towels, one of which was still hung next to shower and was very dirty. These circumstances necessitated only one night's stay, but if the guesthouse was better we would have easily stayed longer.

Baie jammer om te hoor my dame het jou so sleg hanteer, dit is n eerste, en sal opneem met haar.

Dis baie jammer jy kon ons nie dadelik geskakel toe jy daar aan gekom het, en sien unit is vuil ens, dan kon ons dit dadelik opgelos het, want sy moes jou in ons wolf unit gesit het.

Ons het juis die wolf unit vir julle reg gemaak en dus was die loft unit nie voorberei vir julle nie, miscommunication .... ons het juis omdat ons gesien het julle is 4 groot mense besluit ons wolf unit sou beter werk vir julle, dis baie jammer. Julle kon n heel ander ervaring gehad het.

Dit is veilig, netjies en goeie waarde vir geld.

Ons het baie goeie diens ontvang. Ons het onverwags 'n aand vroeër moes inklok. Hulle het plan gemaak om ons te akkommodeer. Dit het ook gebeur dat ons laat eers kon inklok, weereens het hul plan gemaak om ons te help. Sal definitief weer van hul gebruik maak.

Baie mooi, maar baie onprakties.

Bietjie ongelukkig, want die eenheid wat hulle vir ons gegee het was baie mooi, maar baie onprakties en nie baie privaat nie. Ek en my man en my dogter en haar man was daar. 1 badkamer bo, wat heeltemal oop was en 1 dubbelbed en 2 stapelbeddens vir kinders, so jy het geen privaatheid gehad as jy moet aantrek of bad nie. Die ander persone moes onder wag tot jy klaar gebad of gestort het. Die ander eenheid was oop, wat meer geskik was, so ek is bietjie ongelukkig oor waar hulle ons geplaas het. My kinders moes die matrasse van die bed afhaal en op die vloer gooi om te kan slaap.

Very beautiful, but very impractical.

A little bit upset because the unit they gave us was very pretty, but very impractical and not very private. My husband and I shared the space with my daughter and her husband. The bathroom upstairs is completely open next to the double bed for us and bunk beds for them, so we had no privacy to get dressed or take a bath. Everyone had to be downstairs when someone wanted to take a shower or bath. The other unit was not occupied, and more suitable for us, so I'm a bit unhappy about where they placed us. My daughter and her husband had to put the mattresses on the floor to sleep.
