Ons was baie gemaklik en tuis van die oomblik wat ons ingestap het.

Sal dit aanbeveel vir ander mense. Darling is 'n "once-in-a-lifetime" moet en Elly's Place pas in by die hele "experience". Puik.

Ek beveel dit aan.

Ons is vriendelik ontvang deur Elly en Lulu, die Jack Russelltjie. Ons het tuisgegaan in die tuin kothuis. Dit was onberispelik skoon en ons het volkome privaatheid geniet met 'n aparte hek vir gaste.(Dit het gevoel of ons in die vrye natuur is). Die tuin is 'n lushof, ek het my koffie vroegoggend op die houtdek geniet saam met die groot verskeindenheid voëlsoorte wat die dag saam met my begin het. Die ontbyt was 'n heerlike vars kontinentale en warm ontbyt, ruim porsies en heerlike koffie. Elly sien ons weer wanneer die "Darling Slow Beer Festival"aangebied word.

I recommend it.

We were kindly received by Elly and Lulu, the Jack Russell. We went home in the garden cottage. It was impeccably clean and we enjoyed complete privacy with a separate gate for guests.(It felt like we were in the wild). The garden is a loop court, I enjoyed my early morning coffee on the wooden deck with the large variety of bird species that started the day with me. The breakfast was a delicious fresh continental and hot breakfast, generous portions and delicious coffee. Elly will see us again when the "Darling Slow Beer Festival" is presented.

Baie lekker gekuier en heerlike ontbyt was 'n verrassing.

Ek was baie tevrede met alles. Ek was bekommerd oor die veiligheid van my motor, maar dit was toe heel onnodig. Daar is braaigeriewe ens. Sal weer daar bly. Miskien sal stadsmense hou van 'n TV in die kamer. Dit het nie vir my gepla nie.

Very good visit. The delicious breakfast was a surprise.

I was very satisfied with everything. I was worried about the safety of my car, but it turned out to be an unnecessary concern. There are braai facilities etc. I will stay there again. Maybe city slickers will like TV in the room. But it didn't bother me.

Ideale afsaal na die langpad.

Elly, ons vriendelike gasvrou het ons gulhartig ontvang. Ons kamer was gerieflik met alles wat nodig is vir ons verblyf die twee dae. Die twee hondjies Lulu en Jasper het ook kom groet. Ontbyt was groot en regtig lekker. Ons beveel die plekkie aan as iemand Darling wil besoek.

Baie teleurgesteld!

Ek wil net my teleurstelling met julle deel. Ek het R730.00 betaal en dit was uiters swak. Die paadjie na die zozo hut toe is vol vrot lemoene. Die deur kan nie sluit nie, net 'n latch. Ons kar moes in die straat slaap. Daar is nie TV nie, nie radio nie, die badkamer het nie gordyn nie. Die braai is geroes en vol sigaretstompies. Hul sê dis 'n garden cottage. Alles behalwe, dis' n zozo hut 3,5x5 m met geen insolasie. Dit was skoon maar dit is dit. Ontbyt was redelik. Die dame was vriendelik. Ek voel dit was een honderd persent vals advertensie.

Very disappointed!

I just want to share my disappointment with you. I paid R730.00 and it was extremely poor. The path to the zozo hut is full of rotten oranges. The door cannot lock, only a latch. Our car had to sleep in the street. There is no TV, no radio, the bathroom has no curtain. The braai is rusted and full of cigarette butts. They say it's a garden cottage. Everything but, it's a zozo hut 3.5x5 m with no insolation. It was clean but that's it. Breakfast was reasonable. The lady was friendly. I feel it was one hundred percent false advertisement.

Elly's Place 's response

Ek is baie jammer dat Mev Kotze teleurgesteld is. As sy eerder gepraat het kon ek haar 'n kamer binne gegee het maar sy het die garden cottage bespreek. Ek weet my buurvrou se suurlemoenboom gooi nou die boonste suurlemoene af. Ons kan nie bykom nie. Ek het nie suurlemoene Sondag oggend geruim nie. Die deur het n latch en daar is n hakie aan die binnekant van die deur wat jy kan sluit voor eksta veiligheid. Die arme kar het darem nie in die pad geslaap nie maar op die paving voor die huis, van die straat af. Ek het nie TV of radio in my advertensie so sy moes dit geweet het.
Die plafon van die hut is wel ge-insoleer. Jammer oor die stompies in die braai het dit ook nie skoongemaak nie maar gelukkig was die kamer skoon en die beddegoed, die yskas het gewerk en daar was melk in. Die jong mense het die braai as asbak gebruik, seker beter as op die grond gooi!

Nooit ooit weer nie.

Het glad nie privaat gevoel nie, is erg ontstel deur die gasvrou se Ma. Sal nooit weer daar bly nie, beslis nie waarde vir geld nie, heeltemal te veel betaal vir die verblyf en ons voel erg ingedoen.
