'n Huweliksherdenking wat ek wil onthou.

Van ontvangs tot vertrek was die atmosfeer warm en vriendelik en die diens onverbeterlik. Sal dit vir enige iemand aanbeveel.

Voel tuis op Darling.

Dit is die perfekte plek om te slaap in Darling want jy voel sommer die 'vibe' van die dorp. Outentiek, gerieflik, netjies en goed geleë met lekker ontbyt en vriendelike gasheer.

Gerieflike gastehuis in Darling.

Baie gerieflike kamer met kwaliteit beddens. Skoon en netjies en 'n goeie gasheer wat persoonlik na gaste omsien. Goeie ontbyt. Darling is 'n klein dorpie wat te voet verken kan word. Daar is nie lugversorger nie, maar 'n waaier en koel kamers heel gemaklik.

Overall a pleasant stay.

Friendly greeting, nice garden area to relax. Breakfast was excellent. Your website says Secure Parking - Off Street Parking - this is misleading as there is only parking for a few cars - first come first serve! We had to park in the street and hope that the car was not broken into.

Darling Lodge Guest House 's response

Dear Douglas S,
Thank you very much for staying with us and for your helpful review. We apologise for the unclear information on our website and we will be adjusting the wording accordingly. The Darling Lodge Guest House provides 4 off-street parking spaces and ample street parking right in front of the house (we also park our private car in the street). In over 10 years, we haven't witnessed any issues with damage or theft, thanks to the local neighbourhood watch, including surveillance cameras and armed security patrols (as a general rule, nothing of value should be left visible in the car).
We wish you a wonderful summertime and a great start to a happy New Year 2024!
Best regards,
Stephan, Oliver and team

A delightful Victorian oasis, delicious homemade breakfast and charming hosts.

Properly hot showers, electric blankets - a hit with the teens, foot-and-claw-baths, to-die-for jams and marmalade made by the owners, lavender and locally-made toffees on the pillow, modest room prices, beautiful gardens, all set in a peaceful, safe, full-of-treasures village. Thank you Stephan and Oliver for your hospitality and recommendations. I'll return the favour and recommend Darling Lodge unreservedly.

An absolutely beautifully clean, pretty, central lodge.

Thank you, a gorgeous town to visit. The Evita Perron Museum, restaurant and theatre are a must We were so well looked after, had a delicious breakfast, sat at the exquisite pool under the shade, listened to the bird calls, and walked into town for any early dinner, recommended by Stephan. We will definitely return and recommend this haven to all our friends. Darling has so much to offer, one needs at least two days and two nights there to experience it all. We missed Evita Perron's show, and also missed out on the lodge's open-air movie night.

Overnight with my husband in Darling.

Lovely, quiet, clean and a very pleasant place to spend the night. Only criticism is that we missed an aircon.

Dear Marianna E
Thank you very much for staying with uns in Darling and taking your time to write this helpful review. After a long phase of research and clarifications we decided to equip all rooms with fans (standing or ceiling) instead of the aircons. We are very sorry to read, that this didn't work for the extremely hot summer night you stayed with us. We will therefor keep the topic on our "To think about and deal with" list.
Thanks again and have a great time!

Pleasant and peaceful.

Comfortable and clean accommodation, although room did not have a mini fridge with water. Which is a standard logic. Breakfast was disappointing. Quality and quantity thereof. But venue is lively, pool was refreshing.

Dear Tracy
Thank you very much for staying with us and taking your time to write this review.
We are very sorry to read that the breakfast - full English cooked breakfast plus buffet with fresh fruit salad, cheese platter, 3 sorts of cereals, a variety of yoghurts, sweets, toast, tea, fresh grinded coffee, fruit juice, almonds, prunes, dates - was a disappointment.
It is our room-standard to offer all guests a free bottle (500ml) of still water plus rusks, tea, coffee and a sweet treat. All our guests booked in Standard are very welcome to use the shared fridge in our guest lounge.
We do appreciate your valued feedback and will add your advise to our "to deal with and think about" list.
Thank you again for staying with us and we wish you a wonderful day.
Best regards,
Stephan & Oliver & Team

Die gashere was baie vriendelik, inklok-proses was vinnig en die kamer netjies en goed toegerus. Die bed was gemaklik en skoon. Ontbyt was heerlik, veral die tuisgemaakte aarbei konfyt en lemoen marmalade. Beslis die moeite werd.
