Heerlike ondervinding!

Ou historiese gebou. As oud inwoner van Riversdal was dit altyd my begeerte om daar tuis te gaan en ek was nie teleurgestel nie! Aan al my verwagtinge vol doen.

De Doornkraal Vinotel's response

Beste Christa,
Wat 'n voorreg was dit om jou as ou inwoner by ons te hê as gas. Ek is so bly jy het dit geniet en kannie wag vir jou volgende kuierkie by ons nie.
Mooi bly
Eleane

Good service and location.

Wonderful renovation of old Riversdale. Everything very nice and lovely, but sorry that internet was so weak in such an upmarket facility.

Goeie diens en ligging.

Wonderlike opknapping van ou Riversdale. Alles baie mooi en lekker, maar jammer dat internet so swak is in so 'n upmarket fasiliteit.

Very pleasant, just very cold! Last week in August 2019.

The breakfast was wonderful! The croissants melt in your mouth - outstanding! The French lady who served us was great! She even packed us some padkos with 2 bottles of mineral water! The two small problems we encountered in the room were quickly resolved - thank you very much! The luxury room does not have electric blankets, but a hot water bottle is provided as well as a heater. So we slept soundly and didn't get cold!

Baie aangenaam, net baie koud! Laaste week in Augustus 2019.

Die ontbyt was wonderlik! Die croissants het weggesmelt in jou mond - uitstaande! Die Franse dame wat ons bedien het, was puik! Sy het selfs vir ons padkos ingepak met 2 bottels mineraalwater! Die twee klein probleempies wat ons in die kamer ervaar het is vinnig opgelos - baie dankie! Die luukse kamer het nie elektriese komberse nie, maar 'n watersak is voorsien, asook 'n verwarmer. Ons het dus warm geslaap en nie koud gekry nie!

Beste Helen,

Baie dankie dat jy die tyd geneem het om 'n resensie te skryf.

Ons is verheug om te hoor dat julle jul verblyf en ontbyt by ons geniet het. Ons personeel neem alle opmerkings ter harte, met die oog om u verblyf by ons so gerieflik as moontlik te maak.

Augustus-maand is verseker een van die koudste maande en ons probeer ons bes om alle kamers vooraf te verhit.

Ons hoop om julle gou weer te sien.

Baie aangenaam. Baie vriendelike en behulpsame personeel.

Pragtige "compound" van ou geboue met tuin en sitplekke in die middel. Veilige parkering agter geslote hek. Heerlike kos, ruim porsies. Die geboue is baie oud en is pragtig gerestoureer, of bloot behou soos dit was - nostalgies, want dit laat dink aan oumas en oupas en hul plaashuise! Die kamers is gerieflik, en ons het die outydse meubels, baddens, ens. waardeer. Baie geselliger as kliniese moderne geboue.

Incredible service, food and friendliness.

The cook made us his favourite meal, "Lamb Kleftiko". It was incredibly tasty and a must. Just remember to order it 4 days before your arrival.

Ongelooflike diens, kos en vriendelikheid.

Die kok het vir ons sy gunsteling-gereg, "Lamb Kleftiko", gemaak. Dit was ongelooflik lekker en 'n moet. Dit moet net 4 dae voor julle aankoms bestel word.

Kamer mooi, maar diens by restaurant swak.

Die verblyf was mooi en gerieflik, maar die restaurant was bloot swak. Ons het meer as 2 ure vir aandete gewag, en is toe gevra of ons bereid sou wees om 'n verkeerde bestelling te aanvaar! Dit, nadat ek vroeër gevra is hoe gaar ek my hoender verkies!

Wonderful, the people were so hospitable and the food delicious!

The guesthouse is a beautiful, old house, very well looked after. The bed was great, everything you need is in the room, except for shampoo. The food and service in the evening was fantastic, wine was delicious. The service in the morning was a bit slow and food good. The hospitality was very warm. I'd definitely go back if I'm in the area again.

Wondelik, die mense was so gasvry en die kos was fantasties!

Die gastehuis is 'n pragtige ou woonhuis, baie mooi opgepas. Die bed was heerlik, daar was alles wat nodig was in die kamer behalwe sjampoe. Die kos en diens in die aand was fantasties, wyn was ook heerlik. Die diens in die oggend was 'n bietjie stadig en kos goed. Die gasvryheid was so warm. Ek sal vir seker weer gaan as ek in die omgewing is.

Die diens was 5-ster en hulle kos was uitstekend!

Ons het baie vinnig 'n epos ontvang vanaf die hotel met bewys van bespreking. Die kok het ook vir ons 'n spyskaart ge-epos. Die diens was uitstekend! Ons het nog nooit so lekker geëet en gekuier nie. Ons het die Arni Kleftiko bestel. "By prior appointment - 24 hours notice. Chef Peppas prepares this traditional slow roasted Greek lamb using a whole square cut shoulder. Served on a platter to table with Ya Ya’s Patates,veg in season, pita breads and tzatziki. Serves four to six." De Doornkraal Boutique Hotel sien ons beslis weer!

Pragtige eenhede met uitstekende en vriendelike diens.

De Doornkraal Boutique Hotel was een van die beste oornag eenhede waar ons die afgelope Desember 2015 vakansie oornag het - beveel dit verseker aan.So ook die restaurant - heerlike smaakvolle geregte wat bedien word.

Outentiek en ietwat romanties.

De Doornkraal is 'n oulike plekkie wat definitief sal byval vind by diegene wat hou van iets outentiek en ietwat romanties. Ons het twee nagte vir bed en ontbyt bespreek, maar het eintlik min van die omgewing gesien, aangesien ons meeste van die tyd aan 'n rugbytoernooi in Oakdale spandeer het. Die personeel is baie vriendelik en doen hul allerbes om jou tevrede te stel. Die ontbyt en aandete wat ons daar genuttig het was uit die boonste rakke en die sjef is uit die boonste rakke.

Kamer en alle geriewe was fantasties. Uiters skoon.

Chef Chistopher is ongelooflik. Op geen stadium het ons gevoel soos net nog gaste in 'n hotel nie. Hy het uit sy pad gegaan om ons verbly spesiaal en baie gemaklik te maak. Sy kos was fantasties en die persoonlike aandag aan klein "detail" opmerklik. Definitief 'n juweel van 'n hotel en ons sal dit definitief aanbeveel. Alle personeel was vriendelik en selfs toe ons spesiale versoeke gehad het, was iemand altyd daar om te help.

Verrassende blyplek. Riversdal het my verbaas. Die ou deel van die dorp, waar De Doornkraal geleë is, is mooi en skoon, so ook die gastehuis wat pragtig gerestoureer is en goed bestuur word.
