The room looked a bit "tired". He needs renovation.

The access road was bad (probably not their fault) Friendly welcome.

Peaceful stopover.

Emtonjeni Country Lodge has a peaceful country atmosphere, even though it's situated just off the N1. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the swimming pool provides a welcome cool dip after a day on the road. Breakfast was delicious, with the best coffee we had all holiday!

Oornag verblyf op pad vanaf Pretoria na Gansbaai.

Ons is vriendelik ontvang deur die eienaar wat deurentyd bedagsaam was. Ons was egter teleurgesteld in ons kamer. Dit is regtig oud en het aandag nodig. Die toilet het gelek en water het rondom dit opgedam. Daar was ook nie bad of stort matjies nie. Die verbly is bietjie afgeleë en die pad soontoe was baie sleg. Die tuine was egter indrukwekkend en goed versorgd. 'n Tafeltjie en stoele voor die kamer sal help.

Overnight accommodation en route from Pretoria to Gansbaai.

We were kindly received by the owner who was always considerate. However, we were disappointed in our room. It is really old and needs attention. The toilet leaked and water pooled around it. There were no bath or shower mats either. The accommodation is a bit remote and the road there was very bad. However, the gardens were impressive and well maintained. A small table and chairs in front of the room will help.

Baie slegte ondervinding.

Die badkamer was vuil. Moes self die geyser aanskakel nadat ons verseker was dat dit aan was. Die beddegoed was nie skoon. Die lampskerms was verslete. Daar was 'n rot in my kamer en het gate in my bagasie gevreet. Die TV se opvangs was swak en daar was net 2 kanale op. Sou verseker by 'n ander plek ingeboek het, maar verblyf in Bloem was volbespreek a.g.v .die wedstryd tussen die Springbokke en Wallis. Was 'n nagmerrie nag gewees en het 'n haar in my bord gekry die volgende oggend tydens ontbyt.

Very bad experience.

The bathroom was dirty. Had to turn on the geyser ourselves after we were assured it was on. The bedding was not clean. The lampshades were worn. There was a rat in my room and was eating holes in my luggage. The TV's reception was poor and there were only 2 channels on it. Would have checked in at another place for sure, but accommodation in Bloem was fully booked due to the match between the Springboks and Wales. Had a nightmare night and found a hair in my plate the next morning at breakfast.

Hidden gem! Friendly hosts!

We loved our stay at Emtonjeni! The hosts were friendly and very accommodating. The garden is beautiful and our dogs had a wonderful time too! Perfect for a stayover on the way to a further destination although I can imagine it will be a good weekend break-away from city life too.

Fantastiese plek en atmosfeer.

Ons het besluit om hier oor te bly, vir die rede dat ons besig was om te trek, en dit was soos 'n halfway stop. Maar ook vir die rede, ons trek met diere. Henry het ons dadelik 'n groter kamer aangebied, teen geen ekstra kostes nie. Hy is baie vriendelik en lekker gesels met hom. Jy stap daar in en voel die rustigheid en liefde. Ontbyt was heerlik gewees en al die diere was so rustig, gedink dit is hulle huis. Baie dankie Henry.

We decided to stay here because we were moving, and it was like a halfway stop. But also for the reason, we move with animals. Henry immediately offered us a bigger room, at no extra cost. He is very friendly and nice to talk to. You walk in there and feel the tranquility and love. Breakfast had been delicious and all the animals were so calm, thinking it was their home. Thank you very much Henry.
