Bad service, bad communication, poorly maintained accommodation.

Our stay at Die Opstal was disappointing to us. We never met the host. The communication we had with him after our departure was very annoying. Reception was by someone who does the maintenance there and hardly speaks English or Afrikaans. The house is spacious, with a large garden, and the location has a really beautiful view. The kitchen is fully equipped. There were towels, shampoo, etc. ready, and at first glance, it looked cozy. Unfortunately, it turned out that there was considerable overdue maintenance. Upon entering, you could smell the mould. The walls and ceiling were full of damp spots. The downstairs bedroom was not suitable to stay in. Little maintenance has been done for some time. The very old air conditioning unit didn't work, and the swimming pool was dirty. With 35 degrees, it would have been nice to cool down. In the garden, there is an almost dilapidated playground, and the lawn was full of dog poop, which at one point we started scooping away ourselves because we had guests. We stayed elsewhere for a few days and were forced to leave earlier. The beautiful pictures on the website are misleading with the faded glory in reality.

Beautiful area, very well located. Die Opstal is not on par.

The accommodation is very price competitive and in a good location, but lacking in cleanliness and overall maintenance. The pool is not in working order and hasn't been for a long time. There is firewood advertised, but we had to ask for it as nothing was available. The towels were dirty, one was clearly used and smelled! There were spider webs and dust everywhere. The cutlery and plates were greasy; we had to wash them before use. I would recommend the Riversdale area, but not Die Opstal.

It could be a beautiful place, but my unit reservation, which was ground floor, where I could stop right in front of the door, was taken by another reservation, without owner supervision. I was moved to another unit, mother parked very far away, unit was a duplex with stairs, I'm not that young anymore.

Won't be my 1st choice next time.

Gesellig.

Stil en rustig met al die nodige geriewe. Die veiligheidslig wat skerp deur die glasteëls in die slaapkamer inskyn sorg egter vir onderbroke slaap. Vra vir 'n kamer weg vanaf die lig as jy 'n donker omgewing verkies.

Sociable.

Quiet and peaceful with all the necessary amenities. However, the security light that shines sharply through the glass tiles in the bedroom makes for interrupted sleep. Ask for a room away from the light if you prefer a dark environment.

Baie mooi plek met pragtige uitsig op die berge.

Plek netjies, maar kort aandag. Muur in badkamer dop af, skep swak beeld. Venster in kamer het baie gelek met die reën. Die sinkplaat kopstuk by die bed in die kamer gee baie koue af op jou kop.

Very nice place with a beautiful view of the mountains.

Neat place, but needs attention. Wall in bathroom shell off, creates poor image. Window in room leaked a lot with the rain. The corrugated iron headboard by the bed in the room gives off a lot of cold on your head.

Die atmosfeer was rustig en stil. Slegs die ongemak van die ongenooide diere wat ons privaatheid betree het, wat gepla het.

Ons is nie diereliefhebbers nie, daarom was die honde en kat se teenwoordigheid in die woonplek en in ons motor, as deure oop was, nie 'n lekker ervaring nie. Die klein hond wat heel gemaklik op die bed geklim het, was een te veel vir my. 'n No-No. Die bedompige reuk wat in woonplek was, was steurend. Die matte moet maar deeglik skoongemaak word. Met die oopmaak van die deur na die ongebruikte spens, was ons verras oor dit vuil was (geen poging was aangewend om dit skoon te maak nie), wat ons nogal ongemaklik gemaak het. Die skakelaar na die stoeplig by braai plek kon nêrens gevind word nie. Toe my man eienaar soek om die probleem op te los, was hy nie bereikbaar nie.

The atmosphere was calm and quiet. Only the discomfort of the uninvited animals entering our privacy that bothered.

We are not animal lovers, therefore the presence of the dogs and cat in the residence and in our car, if doors were open, was not a pleasant experience. The little dog that climbed onto the bed quite comfortably was one too many for me. A no-no. The musty smell that was in residence was disturbing. The carpets must be cleaned thoroughly. Upon opening the door to the unused pantry, we were surprised to find it dirty (no effort had been made to clean it), which made us quite uncomfortable. The switch to the porch light by braai place could not be found anywhere. When my husband looked for owner to solve the problem, he was not reachable.

Gasvry op die nippertjie, alles wat jy nodig het vir 'n nag se verblyf.

Ek het my bespreking net 'n paar uur gedoen voor ek gearriveer het. Alles was reg gewees en was gasvry ontvang. Ek het tuis gevoel. Moes dringend 'n oornagplekkie kry op 'n Sondagaand en Die Opstal het my met ope arms ontvang. Daar was alles wat 'n persoon nodig het vir 'n nag se oornag. Baie lekker gebly.

Dis 'n baie stil en rustige omgewing.

Niemand was bewus van ons aankoms nie. Ons het op geen stadium die gasvrou ontmoet nie. Die huisie was oortrek van spinnerakke en dooie vlieë en goggas in die vensterbanke. Die buite-area was glad nie skoongemaak nie - selfs daar moes jy koes vir al die spinnerakke! Ek het die eienaar geskakel wat toe na 'n ruk daar opgedaag het. Sy verskoning was dat die huisie lanklaas gebruik is. Hy het dadelik gesê hy sal ons geld vir ons terugbetaal! Nou waarheen moes ons op so 'n kort kennisgewing heen gaan? Een van die plaaswerkers is toe gevra om van die meeste spinnerakke ontslae te raak. Dit was toe ook die laaste wat ons die gasheer of gasvrou gesien het. Dit kan 'n heerlike verblyfplek wees as daar net meer betrokkenheid van die eienaars is.

It's a very quiet and peaceful environment.

No one was aware of our arrival. We never met the hostess. The cottage was covered with cobwebs and dead flies and bugs in the windowsills. The outside area was not cleaned at all - you had to duck for all the cobwebs! I called the owner who then arrived there after a while. His excuse was that the house had not been used for a long time. He immediately said he would refund our money for us! Now where did we have to go on such a short notice? One of the farm workers was then asked to get rid of most cobwebs. It was also the last time we saw the host or hostess. It can be a wonderful place to stay if there is just more involvement from the owners.

Mooi en rustig.

Dis 'n pragtige huisie, met alles wat mens nodig het. Ons het rustig ontbyt geëet op die stoepie in die geselskap van weiende skape en vrolike tarentale met 'n asemrowende uitsig op Riversdal se ikoniese Slapende Skoonheid.

Dit is 'n pragtige omgewing en dit voel asof jy op 'n plaas kuier. Dit is naby beide Oakdale- en Langenhoven Hoërskool wat dit perfek maak vir ouers van kinders wat sport doen.

Ons het twee eenhede die naweek gebruik. Die skuifdeure en Trellidors maak moeilik oop en toe. Die een eenheid se skuifdeur en Trellidoor kon nie sluit nie. Toegang tot die eenheid sal 'n probleem wees indien die eenheid langsaan nie ook bespreek is nie. Beide die boonste eenheid se buitestoele en onderste tuinstoele was vol spinnerakke. Ons het dit self skoongemaak. Niemand het ooit kom seker maak of alles in orde is nie.

It is a beautiful setting and it feels like you are visiting a farm. It is close to both Oakdale and Langenhoven High School which makes it perfect for parents of children who play sports.

We used two units this weekend. The sliding doors and Trellidors are difficult to open and close. The one unit's sliding door and Trellidoor could not close. Access to the unit will be a problem if the unit next door is not also booked. Both the upper unit's outside chairs and lower garden chairs were full of cobwebs. We cleaned it ourselves. No one ever came to check if everything was okay.

Die ligging en omgewing perfek. Al kritiek wat ek kan gee is die feit dat ek vir besigheid gereis het en nie langer daar kon oorbly nie. As mens eers daar is, wil mens nie weer weggaan nie. Die eienaars is baie vriendelik en mens het sommer dadelik tuis gevoel. Die Opstal is definitief in die toekoms op my verblyfagenda en dan wil ek langer daar bly. Die Opstal is baie veilig.

Ons het baie lekker gebly in die ruim en goed toegeruste blyplek. Dis pragtig ingerig. Die enigste kwessie was dat ons by aankoms in die verkeerde (baie kleiner) eenheid geplaas is. Na die verwarring opgelos is het ons heerlik gebly!

Scenic, but dirty.

The view is beautiful: open fields and majestic mountains. We’ve 3 points of criticism. 1) No hospitality. The host didn’t appear on the day of arrival and had to be summoned up the second day. At the day of departure we didn’t see the host as well. 2) Dirty. The guesthouse wasn’t cleaned for a long time, with stuck smear and cobwebs all over. 3) Service. One had to ask for everything: cleaning, fresh linen and towels, kitchen utensils, and so on. When confronted with our criticism, the host told us he and his wife were unfortunately very busy. But apparently it was a wake-up call because when guests from the other guesthouse left, their guesthouse was cleaned up thoroughly during a whole day.

Die Opstal 's response

I am so sorry to hear about your bad experience. My mother-in-law had a knee operation, and my own mother was also in hospital that same week, so it was hectic and a little out of our control. We hope to see you again, we will do a free booking to make up for the bad experience you had.

Opstal is 'n baie rustige plek. Die plaas atmosfeer is baie angenaam, veral vir stadskinders. As jy opstaan sê die skape môre. Die speelareas vir kinders is baie veilig en ons ouers hoef nie heeldag oppaser te speel nie. Die eienaars is regte mens mense. As jy nog nie hier was nie, maak aanstaltes.

Goeie waarde vir geld en great plek vir 'n gesin om 'n nag te spandeer.

Pros: - Ruim! - Water besparing stortkoppe (selfs al is die bietjie oud). - Lekker beddegoed. - Plaasdiere is altyd wenners met kinders. - Effens uit die dorp, so dit voel soos plaas. - Pragtige omgewing. - Eienaars is baie vriendelik en super gasvry! Cons: - Parkering voel nie baie goed beplan nie. - Sigaretstompies in die toilet. - Badkamer drommetjie vol vullis. - Bedlampies is uitgeprop. Daar is ook nie enige kragpunte naby om hul in te plug nie. Doelloos. - Brandgevaar. Daar is 'n skildery wat bo op 'n muurlig rus. Die skildery hang reg bo "bunk beds". Die skildery het al brandmerke a.g.v. hitte van die muurlig. Dit is 'n ticking time bomb. - Veiligheidshekke is nie "slam lock" nie, en ons het nie sleutels gehad vir dit nie. Doelloos. - Deurhandvatsels en skuifdeure se skroewe is los. Dit moet vervang word. - Stort se krane en stortkop is oud en lyk gedaan. Stort kort revamp in die algemeen. Dit mag dalk lyk na baie cons, maar dit moet genoem word. Dis 'n fantastiese plek wat net weer bietjie aandag kort. Vir die geld het ons tog baie lekker gebly en sal steeds dit aanraai vir ander mense.

Good value for money and great place for a family to spend a night.

Pros: - Spacious! - Water saving shower heads (even if the bit old). - Nice bedding. - Farm animals are always winners with children. - Slightly out of town, so it feels like a farm. - Beautiful environment. - Owners are very friendly and super hospitable! Cons: - Parking doesn't feel very well planned. - Cigarette butts in the toilet. - Bathroom bin full of rubbish. - Bedside lamps are plugged out. There aren't any power points nearby to plug them in either. Aimless. - Fire hazard. There is a painting resting on top of a wall light. The painting hangs right above "bunk beds". The painting already has burn marks due to heat from the wall light. It is a ticking time bomb. - Security gates are not "slam lock", and we did not have keys for them. Aimless. - Door handles and sliding doors' screws are loose. It must be replaced. - Shower taps and shower head are old and look worn. Shower needs revamp in general. This may seem like a lot of cons, but it needs to be mentioned. It's a fantastic place that just needs some attention. For the money we had a very nice stay and would still recommend it to other people.

Die verblyf was rustig en gasvryheid van die eienaars verblydend.

Ons het regtig baie lekker gebly, soveel so dat ons 'n ekstra aand gebly het. Die seuntjie van die eienaars met sy "jag stoene" (skoene) was die hoogtepunt.

The stay was peaceful and the hospitality of the owners gratifying.

We really enjoyed our stay, so much so that we stayed an extra night. The son of the owners with his "jag stoene" (shoes) was the highlight.

Die beste woord wat alles aan die plek vir my opsom is ... Vars!

Sien gerus die sterre.

Hospitality at its best!

The Geldenhuys family were exceptional in making sure that our team of workers were comfortable and did not lack anything. It's always risky when I book online for a business trip, always wondering what type of feedback I'll get as to the bookings I make. I was sooo relieved when the Managing Director informed me that I could not have chosen a better place for them to stay. Thank you, thank you for great accommodation, stunning decor, breathtaking views and farm life experiences.

Dit is prentjiemooi.

Alles was net perfek, daar is soveel interessanthede. Die perde was vermaak op hulle eie. Baie dankie vir 'n besonderse naweek weg van die warboel. Sal verseker weer daar oorslaap as ons in Riversdal is.

It is picture perfect.

Everything was just perfect, there are so many interesting things. The horses were entertainment in their own right. Thank you very much for a special weekend away from the hustle and bustle. Will definitely stay there again when we are in Riversdal.
