Was oornagstop.

Baie gerieflike huis en goeie beddens om in te slaap. Die stortgerief was teleurstellend met stortkop wat so min water deurlaat wat tot slegs misstrooi lei wat uiters swak was in vergelyking met al die ander plekke wat ons gedurende die reis ervaar het.

Was overnight stop.

Very comfortable house and good beds to sleep in. The shower facility was disappointing with shower head letting so little water through resulting in only misting which was extremely poor compared to all the other places we experienced during the trip.

Teleurstellend, nie wat ons na uitgesien het nie.

Net ons aankoms moes ons uitvind dat hulle nog besig was met teëlwerk. Het gebruikte kondoom papier onder die bed gevind. 2de oggend was daar geen water vir stort nie. Ventelasie is swak. Kan bietjie opknap.

Disappointing, not what we were looking for.

As soon as we arrived we had to find out that they were still busy with tiling. Found used condom paper under the bed. 2nd morning there was no water for shower. Ventilation is poor. Can do a bit of renovation.

Lekker stil woonbuurt en lekker gerus.

Enigste probleem is maar die water in die Oos-Kaap maar dis nie hulle probleem nie. DiemMunisipaliteit sal regtigwaar iets aan dit moet doen om te voorkom dat daar nie toeriste is wat ander pad kies nie.

Nice quiet neighborhood and good rest.

The only problem is the water in the Eastern Cape, but that is not their problem. Diem Municipality will really have to do something about it to prevent that there are no tourists who choose a different path.

Very nice place to stay.

Well equipped very spacious self catering unit in a good area, owners are very friendly, acceptable tariffs, I will visit Port Alfred often in future to visit my son at air school, will stay at Dollery house every time I visit. Only 1 negative point is that the front door does not have a security gate.

Selfdoen-projek nog onvoltooid.

Die binnekant van die verblyf word duidelik nie professioneel gedoen nie en daar is vele voorbeelde van dinge wat beskryf kan word as "Heath Robinson". Algeheel is die plekkie "rustic" maar is tog ruim, gerieflik en goed toegerus. Die tuinslang van 'n kraan na die wasbak is darem te kru.

DIY project still unfinished.

The interior of the accommodation is clearly not done professionally and there are many examples of things that could be described as "Heath Robinson". Overall, the place is "rustic" but is nevertheless spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The garden hose from a faucet to the sink is at least too crude.

Horrible place.

No hot water on arrival. Owners harassing us for payment that was made online. We requested to check out after 10 am on Sunday and a R50 penalty fee was agreed on. First thing on Sunday morning was a knock on the door for the R50. No TV as advertised. No thank you. No form of heating in the middle of winter.

Dollery House 's response

The guests arrived at 9:00 for a 14:00 check-in, hence the 'no hot water on arrival'. They also arrived before we had received confirmation of their booking. They could only supply a bank slip as proof that payment was made. With all the corruption we live with these days, I am hesitant to allow guests to check in without a formal confirmation that funds have cleared on the agency's side.

As check-out time is 10:00, we charged the guest a reasonable amount of R50 for the delay in being able to clean the unit. They promised to pay this additional amount on Saturday evening. By 10:00 on Sunday morning, I requested the payment, which by that time had not been paid.

In August, we only had TV for DVDs so had not advertised a TV in the flat at all. Since then, we installed Openview and updated the listing accordingly.
