Vir 'n dorpie soos Koingnaas is Die Anker aangename oornagverblyf. Eienaars was baie vriendelik en het moeite gedoen om ons welkom te laat voel.

Interessant, aangenaam.

For a village like Koingnaas, Die Anker is pleasant overnight accommodation. Owners were very friendly and made an effort to make us feel welcome.

Interesting, pleasant.

Swak akkomodasie.

Die kamer is bespreek vir 2 mense, maar is voorberei vir 1. Een van alles. Verskeie kakkerlake in kamer.

Clean, comfortable and wonderfully peaceful.

Our unplanned stayover in this old-style hotel-type guesthouse was very pleasant. Our dinner at Klein Oqis Restaurant in part of the old mine's mess hall was a delightful experience.

Tannie Isabel, a lady with a heart of gold. If we ever go back it would be to see Tannie Isabel. Thank you. God bless you. Room was brilliant. Great bath. Good shower. Spacious kitchen. A home away from home.

As mense in daai omgewing wil wees. Ons moes vreeslik ver ry vir slaapplek en daar is nie naweek brandstof nie, en net soos 'n tuckshop, gelukkig het ons op Springbok kruideniers gekoop. Maar ons was selfsorg en het lekker gebly. Isabel was baie vriendelik.

Wind baie gewaai daar, niks om te doen nie. So hang af wat jy daar wil gaan doen. Ons nie besef dit so ver uit ons roete nie en grondpad na Garies is baie erg.

If people want to be in that environment. We had to drive terribly far for a place to sleep and there is no weekend fuel, and just like a tuckshop, luckily we bought groceries on Springbok. But we were self-catering and had a nice stay. Isabel was very friendly.

Very windy there, nothing to do. So it depends what you want to do there. We didn't realize it was so far out of our route and the dirt road to Garies is very bad.

Bekostigbaar, gerieflik en vriendelik.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Daar is nie eintlik baie in Koingnaas te doen nie, dis hoekom ons vir ligging nie eintlik meer as 3 sterre kan gee nie. Dit is 'n perfekte blyplek om te oornag en weer na die volgende bestemming te ry. Isabella, wat ons ontvang het, was baie vriendelik en baie ontvanklik. De Anker stel hulle geriewe beskikbaar om self kos warm te maak, gou 'n vuurtjie te maak en te braai. Ek het dit eerlikwaar nie verwag in Koingnaas nie. Al wat ek sal kan aanbeveel vir De Anker, is dalk buite die dorp 'n bordjie opsit en roete aanwysers deur die dorp tot by gastehuis.

Affordable, convenient and friendly.

We had a very nice stay. There isn't really much to do in Koingnaas, that's why we can't actually give more than 3 stars for location. It is a perfect place to stay overnight and drive again to the next destination. Isabella, who received us, was very friendly and very receptive. De Anker makes facilities available to heat your own food, quickly make a fire and grill. I honestly did not expect this in Koingnaas. All I would be able to recommend for De Anker is perhaps putting up a sign outside the town and route indicators through the town to the guest house.

Good value.

The guest house is situated in an old diamond mining village, and is well maintained and serviced. The caretaker was extremely friendly and helpful and the establishment is clean and homely. Location is not the greatest, but is good value for money and within easy vehicle access to the beach and nature reserves.

Alright as a place to sleep - nothing going on in Koingnaas unless you are into diamond mining.

Rooms were fine, we checked in late and they were accommodating, there was a kitchen area that could be use and we did make use of it. Was on my way to Namibia so this was just a convenient place to stop. Actually it was not so convenient on the day as I spent 3.5 hours driving in the dark on not fabulous dirt roads. Only arrived a little before midnight. Had been in contact with the hosts earlier to say we would be late.

Rustig, skoon en netjies.

Hartlik ontvang. Die eenheid wat ons bespreek het, het nie 'n stort ingehad nie. Ons het 'n eenheid met 'n stort verkies en dit is dadelik aan ons voorsien. Ons het ook 'n bar yskassie versoek en dit is ook voorsien. Die kamer en badkamer is lekker ruim en was te alle tye skoon en netjies. Die kamer is baie warm as gevolg van sy ligging en sal aanbeveel dat hulle 'n waaier voorsien of 'n dakwaaier installeer. Dis rustig en stil. Ons het letterlik net saans daar geslaap omdat ons bedags saam met die familie gekuier het. Sal beslis hierdie gastehuis aanbeveel.

Relaxing, clean and neat.

Warm reception. The unit we booked dind't have a shower. We prefered a unit with a shower and they saw to it at once. We also requested a bar fridge and they provided it. Spacious bathroom and room, clean and neat at all times. Because of it's location the room gets very hot. I recommend intalling a ceiling fan or a stand alone fan. Peaceful and quiet. We only slept there because during the day we socialized with relatives. I definitely recommend this guesthouse.

Was clean and people very friendly. Can't really comment anything negative, only positive.

My wife and I do not know the West Coast at all, our reception by friendly people was good.

The only problem I have is that the rooms are not fitted with its own TV.

Die Anker is a great place to stay, central for what we as travellers would like and for the purpose it would be to attend the mine. They are very friendly and let one feel at home.
