Kuier was so 'n wegbreek met familie.

Gastehuis soos getoon op webtuiste, nie netjiese weergawe van gastehuis nie. Gastehuis kort beslis 'n opgradering. Tuin onnet. Beddegoed en handdoeke oud. Sekuriteitshek werk nie.

Visiting was such a getaway with family.

Guest house as shown on website, not neat version of guest house. Guesthouse definitely needs an upgrade. Garden untidy. Bedding and towels old. Security gate not working.

Enige tyd weer.

Die oomblik toe die deur oopgemaak word, word jy sommer op jou naam gegroet. Ek sal elke keer by hulle bespreek. Waarde vir geld, vriendelik en jy voel sommer tuis. Ek dink as jy vra kom ons braai, dan maak hulle plan. Julle sien my weer.

Any time again.

The moment the door is opened, you are greeted by name. I will book with them every time. Value for money, friendly and you feel right at home. I think if you ask let's have a barbecue, then they make a plan. You see me again.

Dit was loshande die beste B&B ervaring wat ek nog ooit gehad het.

Grant het ons laat voel asof dit ons eie huis is. Hy het toegelaat dat ons ons Kersete saam met ons kinders daar hou. Ons het die sitkamer, kombuis en eetkamer beset asof dit by ons eie huis was. Hy het sommer ook gehelp met werktuigkundige probleme wat my seun met sy motor opgedoen het. Sy personeel was flink, vriendelik en baie behulpsaam. Ek sal nooit weer in enige ander B&B gaan bly as ek weer in PE kom nie. Ons gee hom 10 uit 10 en sommer n paar ekstra punte omdat hy bereid was om die tweede myl met ons te stap.

Translate to English.

It was hands down the best B&B experience I have ever had.

Grant made us feel like it was our own home. He allowed us to have our Christmas dinner there with our children. We occupied the living room, kitchen and dining room as if it were our own home. He also helped with mechanical problems my son had with his car. His staff were nimble, friendly and very helpful. I will never stay in any other B&B again if I come back to PE. We give him 10 out of 10 and just a few extra points because he was willing to walk the second mile with us.

Dringende opknapping is nodig. Gaste kom en gaan reg deur die nag, en is baie steurend.

Die gastehuis het dringende opknapping nodig. Die plek is oud en afgeleef. Die kamer wat aan my gegee was, is reg langs die ingangshek, ek daar was die hele nag, to laat kort kort mense wat in of uit gaan, en wat baie geraas het. In die badkamer was daar 'n probleem met die toilet wat lek as jy hom spel. Daar was geen WiFi nie, en ook geen DSTV nie. Volgens die man wat my ontvang het by aankoms, werk dit al lankal nie meer nie.

Urgent renovation is needed. Guests come and go right through the night, and are very disturbing.

The guest house is in urgent need of renovation. The place is old and shabby. The room that was given to me is right next to the entrance gate, I was there all night, until late, there were hardly any people going in or out, and there was a lot of noise. In the bathroom there was a problem with the toilet leaking when you flush it. There was no WiFi, and no DSTV either. According to the man who received me upon arrival, it has not worked for a long time.

Ek het laat ingeboek, maar is vinnig gehelp.

Warm water het lank geneem om deur te kom en uitlaat was verstop. Verder was die verblyf netjies en waarde vir geld. Die binne sekuriteits-parkering was vol nadat ek die aand uitgegaan het.

Although the place was very clean, we arrived to a rather derelict appearance.

As indicated in ratings, to me they were excellent. The reason I only gave them 3 star for security is purely because the vehicles are not in an enclosed / protected area.
