Alles mooi skoon en netjies en die gasvrou is baie goed.

Baie lekker gebly. Dit was 'n koue Karoonag, maar ons het warm water gehad, asook 'n warm bed.

All you need for an overnight stay.

Pleasant, quaint old plaashuisie and surrounds in need of some TLC. We stayed in the smaller place. Hosts are very friendly. Quite noisy next to the N1.

Salig.

As jy blink goed soek ("all the bells and whistles"), vergeet van Die Blokhuis. As jy plat op die aarde, sout van die aarde mense soek, 'n basiese, skoon, veilige en heeltemaal gerieflike oornagplek, dan is Die Blokhuis vir jou. As jy nie gewoond is aan die klank van deurnag verkeer nie, dan gaan dit ook dalk lol. Kry 'n Karoo chop op die dorp, pak 'n sakkie hout en braai onder die sterre - daai is die Blokhuis.

Blessed.

If you're looking for shiny things ("all the bells and whistles"), forget Die Blokhuis. If you are looking for down-to-earth, salt-of-the-earth people, a basic, clean, safe and completely comfortable place to stay, then Die Blokhuis is for you. If you're not used to the sound of all-night traffic, you might as well lol. Get a Karoo chop in town, pack a bag of wood and barbecue under the stars - that's the Blokhuis.

Horrible.

Awful, the block house should not be offered on the loose.

Baie lekker gebly.

Baie dankie, ons het lekker gebly. As jy van luuks, nuwe akkommodasie hou, dan is dit nie vir jou nie. Ek het dit baie geniet.

Dit was teleurstellend.

Dit was glad nie skoon nie en baie lawaaierig a.g.v. die nabyheid aan die N1 en ek kan nie sê dit is dierevriendelik nie. Daar is geen area wat toe en veilig is vir diere nie.

It was disappointing.

It was not clean at all and very noisy because the proximity to the N1 and I can't say it's animal friendly. There is no area that is closed and safe for animals.

Perfekte oornagverblyf wanneer jy ver reis, maar sal verseker langer kan bly.

Egte Karoo-ondervinding in eenvoudige, netjiese en goed toegeruste eenhede. Sout van die aarde mense! Heerlik!

Perfect overnight stay when traveling far, but would certainly be able to stay longer.

Genuine Karoo experience in simple, neat and well-equipped units. Salt of the earth people! Delicious!

Moenie hier bespreek nie.

Die toestand van hierdie verblyf is van uiters swak kwaliteit. Die toilet is nie spoelbaar nie, dit is vuil, die beddegoed is baie min, daar is nie ligte in die plek nie, slegs 2 bedlampies, dit voel ongelooflik onveilig. Daar is geen selfoonopvangs nie.

This review is being shown in its original language.

Do not book here.

The condition of this accommodation is of extremely poor quality. The toilet is not flushable, it is dirty, the bedding is very little, there are no lights in the place, only 2 bedside lamps, it feels incredibly unsafe. There is no mobile reception.

Our house was definitely not worth R1000.

Very elementary. Let them send you a photo and judge for yourself. I think they should adjust the price.

Pleasant environment; plenty of room for improvement.

Hosts are very pleasant. Bedding and room will need to made "warmer" for the winter ahead. A countertop oven in the honeymoon suite is necessary as well.

Geagte Klient.
Die Blokhuis is 'n plaas, met alle plaas fiterhasies, beslis nie 'n gastehuis op die dorp of stad. As jy nie 'n natuur of plaasmens is nie, dan is Die Blokhuis beslis nie vir jou, dan sal jy fout vind met alles. Die Blokhuis is beslis nie vuil, dit kan ek waarborg, lees wat my vorige kliente se van Die Blokhuis.
Blokhuis groete.

Rustige karoo plaas oorslaap.

Ons het lekker gebly. Alles was skoon en netjies. Ons het in die huis gebly. Dit is 'n regte outydse plaashuisie soos in die ou dae.

Peaceful karoo farm sleepover.

We had a nice stay. Everything was clean and tidy. We stayed in the house. It is a real old fashioned farmhouse like in the old days.

Ag hoe lekker! Ek het lekker rondgestap en die plaas verken en die blyplek was wonderlik. Die gasheer en -vrou was wonderlik en ek het lekker met hulle gesels. Dankie, ek is so bly ek weet van julle, volgende keer kom ek weer! Dankie!
