Uitstekende verblyf opsie in Gonubie. Loopafstand van strand geleë.

Ek het die akkommodasie benut ten tyde my eerste Half Ironman & die gasvrou was uiters behulpsaam met reëlings wat ek per abuis verkeerd gehad met voorbereiding met die gebeurtenis.

Die gastehuis se ligging het ons uitstekend gepas by strand en winkels en dienslewering was akkuraat met 2 hiccups.

Eerstens was ons onder die indruk dat ons eie kos kan warm maak in ons eie kamer as wel die geval was met ons vorige B&B-fasiliteite omrede ons B&B instansies gereeld besoek, so dit maak die etes ongemaklik omrede ons moet reël dat restaurantgeriewe oopgemaak word vir ons om dit te gebruik omrede dit altyd toe was of ons moes altyd gaan uiteet wat bietjie nadelig was vir ons omdat dit nie deel van ons budget/beplanning was nie. Tweedens was ons onder indruk dat breakfast ingesluit was by prys omrede dit geadverteer word as 'n B&B. Dit was wel nie die geval nie na ons eerste dag se navraag en ons was ingelig ons het dit nie gekies nie. Nou vraag is waar moes ons dit gekies het as ons dit moes gedoen het by bespreking? Weet nie wie se probleem dit is nie, maar daar moet duidelik aangemeld word dat breakfast addisioneel is of 'n opsie by bespreking en booking moet gegee word sodat reisigers duidelik in kennis gestel word van opsies. Dit het ons heeltemal onkant gevang en moes toe ons budgets oorskry vir vakansie a.g.v. onduidelikheid. So, al ons etes was basis over budget a.g.v. beperkte geriewe. Ons het nie veel van issue gemaak nie, maar wil inlig en gaan voortaan al die navrae doen alvorens ons weer bespreek. Andersins was als in plek en dienslewering was op standaard tydens vakansiedae soos Kersfees en dag daarna waar geen dienste gelewer was nie, was ons verwittig om wel navraag te doen indien skoon handdoeke, ens. vir ons gegee moet word of nie.

Die kamer was heerlik koel na 'n lang warm dag.

Alles pragtig en netjies, was baie vriendelike ontvang en alles is uitgewys. Ek kan net kla oor die een enkelbed wat vreeslik gekraak het deur die nag wat 'n groot steurnis was in die nag.

Very friendly and helpful ladies - they quickly sorted out the problem with the internet and were always available for advice and assistance.

The rooms may not be as big as they look on the picture; for us it was enough, but with children it would have been very small. The unit is self-catering and the equipment is good and neat. Just look at the place to eat your food, the two bar stools are really two torture prongs and we avoided them as far we could. Seating at the counter is very limited. On the veranda is a miniature table and two chairs. Two people can't put their plates on the table together. Maybe they can replace the miniature tables with more appropriate tables. Each room has a micro-braai - one cannot be heightened; we could braai, but for the price one would expect something more. Visitors may have to think about bringing their own inventory - the local Spar prices are excessive - we don't even pay so much tax in the Free State countryside! For the price they sell wine at, I can buy almost two wine farms. There aren't really eating places where one can eat in the evening. In spite of everything, we had a nice stay.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Baie vriendelike en behulpsame dames - hulle het die probleem met die internet gou uitgesorteer en was altyd beskikbaar vir raad en bystand.

Die vertrekke is dalk nie so groot as wat dit op die foto lyk nie; vir ons twee was dit voldoende, maar met kinders sou dit baie beknop gewees het. Die eenheid is selfsorg en die toerusting daarvoor is goed en netjies. Kyk dalk net na die plek om jou kos te eet, die twee kroegstoele is werklik martelpype en ons het hulle so ver ons kan vermy. Sitplek by die toonbank is baie beperk. Op die stoep is 'n miniatuur tafel en twee stoele. Twee mense kan nie hulle borde saam op die tafel sit nie. Dalk kan hulle die miniatuurtafels met meer gepaste tafels vervang. Elke kamer het 'n mikrobraai - mens kan nie die hoogte stel nie; ons kon darem braai, maar vir die prys sou mens iets meer verwag. Besoekers moet dalk daaroor dink om hulle eie voorraad saam te bring - die plaaslike Spar se pryse is buitensporig - ons betaal nie eers soveel invoerbelasting in die Vrystaatse platteland nie! Vir die prys waarvoor hulle wyn verkoop, kan ek amper twee wynplase koop. Daar is ook nie werklik eetplekke waar mens in die aand iets kan eet nie. Ten spyte van alles het ons tog lekker gebly.

Ek is baie vriendelik ontvang en my kamer was baie mooi netjies en skoon. Die kamer is goed toegerus met als wat ek nodig gehad het. Al wat negatief was, is dat die kamer nie 'n en suite-badkamer gehad het nie - die badkamer is oorkant die gang. Dankie Crowned Crane!

Dear Corli,

It was lovely having you here. Thank you for your nice words. Next time you visit, please inquire about our other rooms, as you were in the budget room with its big private bathroom, the only room without an en-suite.

Baie lekker gebly, baie skoon en netjies.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Al waaroor ons bekommerd was die eerste aand was die feit dat ons kar buite die hek moes slaap en my man het elke nou en dan deur die nag opgestaan om seker te maak dit is nog daar. Die tweede aand kon ons darem binne parkeer en kon ons rustig slaap. Ongelukkig is die binne parkering op 'n "first come" sisteem so as jy uitgaan en bietjie laat terugkom, bly jou kar buite.

Lekker, maar jy kyk vas in die agterkant van die hoofgebou.

Daar is nie fout met die verblyf nie, maar ek sou verkies om die see te sien in die aand wanneer jy buite sit. Die gaste langs ons se motor se agterruit is die vorige aand uitgeslaan en alles in die motor is gesteel.

Lekker!

Ek het lekker gebly in Crowned Crane, maar in vergelyking met ander plekke is daar nie regtig waarde vir geld nie. Ek was in die enkelkamer met 'n badkamer oorkant die gang. Ek was nie gelukkig toe ek terugkeer en sien my kamerdeur staan oop nie. Die skoonmakers het mooi skoongemaak, maar nie my kamer weer gesluit nie. En die kamer is reg langsaan die kantoor, so dit is baie bedrywig daar.

Die bestuur was baie behulpsaam en tegemoedkomend.

'n Netjiese instansie met vriendelike personeel/bestuur wat baie behulpsaam was. Die badkamers het egter 'n onaangename aroma wat reggestel behoort te word, en die storte se vloere is baie glad met geen handvatsels vir ouer en swak persone om hulle te stabiliseer nie. Ek stel voor dat glyvaste matte of iets soortgelyks beskikbaar gemaak word en dat handvatsels in storte aangebring word.

"Budget Room" goeie waarde vir geld. Heerlike ontbyt!

Crowned Crane is in 'n baie goeie area geleë, die ideale basis vanwaar mens die area kan verken. Keurige verblyf, aangename personeel en heerlike ontbyt. Ons het net vir een nag bespreek en daarvoor was die "bugdet room" heeltemal voldoende. Vir langer verblyf, sou ons verseker die goed-toegeruste selfsorg-akkommodasie opgeneem het. Baie dankie!
