Baie eenvoudige akkommodasie, maar tog wil ek terug gaan.

Fantastiese ligging. Ons het in 'n rondawel gebly. Eenvoudige akkommodasie met slegs die nodige in die rondawel, maar netjies en skoon. Die staff was bitter vriendelik en gaaf. Die plaas is al in dieselfde familie vanaf die 1800s, wat dit spesiaal maak.

Baie teleurgesteld.

Die personeel is vriendelik, maar baie onprofessioneel. Dit is jammer vir 'n klomp jong mans wat ander gaste geterroriseer het en die bestuur was nie opgewasse om dit te hanteer nie. Mens gaan met die verwagting om die rus en vrede van Wildernis te beleef, en nie om in vrees te slaap nie.

Rustig en baie mooi natuurskoon.

Met aankoms is ek vriendelik ontvang. Die kamers baie skoon en netjies. Die rivier is baie naby en rustig skoon en ook die braai-area mooi en skoon. Sal hulle beslis weer besoek en aanbeveel. Die geskiedenis van die plek ook baie interessant.

Very disappointing second visit.

My first visit was special, but with my second visit the service in the dining room was bad. The table tennis rackets were broken and the pool table felt was very thin and almost unplayable. The service was friendly and helpful, but the structure fell apart a bit. This is a great pity as it is a great location but unfortunately I will not visit the hotel again.

Uiters teleurstellende tweede besoek.

My eerste besoek was besonders, maar met my tweede besoek was die diens in die eetsaal power. Die tafeltennisrakette was stukkend en die pooltafel se filt op die blad baie dun en omtrent onspeelbaar. Die diens was vriendelik en behulpsaam, maar die struktuur val 'n bietjie uitmekaar. Dit is 'n groot jammerte want dit is 'n uitstekende lokasie, maar ongelukkig sal ek nie weer die hotel besoek nie.

Ons het nie oorspronklik die kamer gekry waarvoor ons gevra het, maar na klagtes oor lekkende bad het hul ons dadelik geskuif.

Dit was heerlike ervaring. Die ontbyt is regtig heerlik. Die hotel het opknapping nodig, maar teen die prys wat ons betaal het, was dit waarde vir geld. Die personeel is baie hulpvaardig en vriendelik. Na ons gekla het oor lekkende bad, is ons geskuif na beter kamer waarvoor ons gevra het aan die begin. Baie aangename bekostigbare verblyf.

Bekostigbaar. Die plek is nie die nuutste nie, maar jy kan nie fout vind daarmee nie en die prys was reg. Kort regtig niks meer nie.

Gerieflik, goeie ontbyt. Kan baie lekker wees in die somer met die rivier so naby.

Aangenaam verras.

Dit was baie aangenaam om daar te kon kuier. Al wat miskien kan bykom is die gehalte van die televisie-kanale. Dit het ons agtergekom toe ons nie buite kon rondbeweeg nie as gevolg van die reën. Meer kanale, sport en KyNET sal dit vergemaklik. Sal definitief weer daar wil oorbly vir 'n langer tyd.

Average.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Furniture is old and worn. Table tennis and pool tables do not belong in a dining hall, noise of players is irritating while guests enjoy their meal.

Gemiddeld.

Personeel is vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Meubels is oud en afgeleef. Tafeltennis en snoekertafels hoort nie in 'n eetsaal nie, geraas van spelers is irriterend terwyl gaste hulle ete geniet.

Skoon beddegoed, maar kamers nie skoongemaak nie.

Ek het nie gevoel dis 'n 3-ster hotel nie. Dit lyk maar op plekke vervalle. 'n 3-ter hotel gee ook nie Ricoffy en Cremora in die kamers nie. Daar was baie stof onder die bed en goed van vorige gaste wat agter die spieëlkas ingeval het. So dit word beslis nie weggeskuif elke keer as gaste daar was nie. Ons het ook nie elke dag warm water gehad om in te bad/stort nie.

The hotel is in a terrific location. The breakfast was really nice and the mornings were peaceful. The swimming pool and grounds are looked after.

Pragtig geleë. Uitstekende ontbyt. Baie vriendelike personeel.

Die hotel is op 'n verskriklike mooi plek geleë. Die ontbyt was regtig baie lekker en die oggende was vredevol. Die swembad en gronde word mooi na gekyk. Tydens die bespreking was die een van die goedkoper plekke in die omgewing. Die kamers is bietjie vervalle (steeds skoon), maar ek voel vir die prys was dit te verwagte en ek was steeds tevrede met die kamer.

Net ligging is mooi - res swak.

Die ligging en uitsig is pragtig. Die hotel was 'n teleurstelling. Dit word beslis nie goed onderhou nie. Muf reuk in kamers, matte is deurgeloop, verf op mure is af, spinnerakke in die vensters, bad se emalje is af, handvatsel van kas is af. Ontbyt was soos koshuiskos - droog en sonder smaak. Ons het een dag vroeër uitgeboek. Sal slegs weer soontoe gaan as die hotel klaar opgeknap is. Dit het ongelooflike potensiaal oor die ligging. Dis so jammer dat die plek nie onderhou word nie.

Old, outdated and in need of as major overhaul.

Great spot on the river, grounds are well looked after and the staff are very friendly and efficient. The rooms were terrible - grimy, needed painting, bath was shocking, no phone, no fridge, 3 blurry DStv channels not 8 as advertised. The sports equipment was shocking. 10 table tennis bats all broken, a net held together with sellotape and a part of a cardboard box. Tennis equipment was outdated and balls terrible. No restaurant as advertised? No menus for the minimum amount of food they did prepare (burgers, chips and toasties). Our quote said a buffet breakfast which we were looking forward to - didn't happen, no menu. Water in the rooms was warm - just. I know they advertise as the hotel being an "Old dame" but this old dame should have been retired a long time ago.

Rustige verblyf in pragtige omgewing met vriendelike personeel.

Die personeel was baie behulpsaam met raad en inligting oor die omgewing en het ons tuis laat voel van die begin af. Die ontbyt is heerlik met vinnige diens. Ten spyte van die ouderdom van die gebou, word dit goed onderhou en mens het alles tot jou beskikking wat jy teen die billike tarief verwag. Die kinders het die rivier en swembad baie geniet.

Very pleasant.

Friendly staff. Scenic location. Value for money. Clean and neat. From what I heard the facility is going to be upgraded. So much potential for somewhat more luxurious accommodation.

Baie aangenaam.

Baie vriendelike personeel. Skilderagtige ligging. Ongelooflike waarde vir geld. Skoon en netjies. Volgens hoorsê gaan fasiliteit opgegradeer word. Soveel potensiaal vir effe meer luukse akkommodasie.

Looks like a lot of renovation is needed.

We would have liked to have dinner at the restaurant, but was informed that the kitchen was closed. Not friendly staff.

Dit lyk as of daar baie opknapping nodig is.

Ons wou graag aandete by die restaurant geniet, maar was meegedeel die kombuis is gesluit. Nie vriendelike personeel nie.

Die gebou en fasiliteite is 'n bietjie oud, maar die wonderlike ligging en vriendelike diens maak op daarvoor.

Die Fairy Knowe Hotel is geleë op die pragtige Serpentinerivier in Wildernis. 'n Beter ligging kan jy nie kry nie. Dit is ook super rustig en mooi daar binne-in die natuur. Ongelukkig is die fasiliteite (kamers, badkamers en eetsaal) uit 'n vorige era, maar nie 'n aantreklike vorige era nie. Ek sou skat daar was 'n opknapping in die 70's en niks is ooit weer verder gedoen nie. Mens kan dus die billike koste verstaan. Ek sou egter bereid gewees het om meer te betaal vir 'n bietjie meer luuksheid. Die personeel, van die bestuur tot die kombuis- en tuinpersoneel, was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Rustige verblyf met vriendelike personeel.

'n Baie aangename verblyf met die rustigheid van die omgewing en die lekker roei op die rivier was die moeite werd. Het nie die kamer gekry wat bespreek was nie. Die hotel kan 'n voorkeur bestemming word as hy op gegradeer kan word. Die kos goed, maar nie altyd konstant. Personeel baie behulpsaam en vriendelik.

Stayed for one night only, but view was excellent!

As we only stayed one night a review wouldn't be fair.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Slegs een nag oornag, maar die uitsig was uitstekend!

Omdat ons letterlik net oornag het sal dit onbillik wees om 'n resensie te lewer, regtig.

Goeie ligging, maar behoort opgegradeer te word.

Goeie ligging, maar sommige areas is afgeleef en behoort verfris te word. Administrasie is nie goed nie en ons het weke gesukkel om terugbetaling van kamer se kansellasie te kry. Ons sal weer besoek, maar die plek het onvervulde potensiaal en het liefdevolle aandag nodig.

Fairy Knowe Hotel's response

Baie dankie vir die resensie, ons waardeer die terugvoering geweldig baie.

Ek vra hartlik onverskoning vir die ongerief met die terugbetaling. Ons is tans besig met 2017 se beplanning met betrekking tot die herstelwerk wat ons benodig. Ons wil baie graag teen die einde van die jaar n goeie verandering maak aan die perseel met n bietjie verlange aandag aan onderhoud.

Ek hoop met julle volgende verblyf kan ons u veras!

Baie behulpsaam en vriendelik!

Die personeel was baie behulpsaam en het ons tuis laat voel met ons besoek vir die SA Landloop te George. My man het die braai die aand by die rondawel baie geniet! Ons en ons kinders het die kort tydjie geniet in Wildernis, gelukkig het die weer saam gespeel en kon ons ook oop die stand uitkom.

Hotel and rooms and bathrooms need an upgrade. Staff very friendly.

At that particular time there were 60+ young rugby players from different clubs at the hotel for a course in the area. They were very friendly but complicated breakfast. The staff were thus very busy and I was the only other guest there for breakfast. The second morning I had yogurt, but no fruit. The room had a beautiful view, but I had to carry my luggage up and down a difficult staircase. The staff at reception were friendly and provided me with information on the area. I have stayed in better places for the same amount of money in the area. Wilderness is so beautiful that the view made up for the accommodation.

Hotel en kamers en badkamers het opknapping nodig. Personeel baie vriendelik.

Daar was die betrokke tyd 60+ jong rugbyspelers van verskillende klubs by die hotel vir kursus in omgewing. Hulle was baie vriendelik maar het ontbyt gekompliseerd. Die personeel dus baie besig en ek enigste ander gas by ontbyt. Tweede oggend se ontbyt wel joghurt gehad, maar geen vrugte nie. Die kamer het 'n pragtige uitsig gehad, maar moes my bagasie teen 'n moeilike trap op en af dra. Die persone by die ontvangs baie vriendelik en het aan my inligting oor die omgewing gegee. Ek het al vir die selfde bedrag beter verblyf in die omgewing gehad. Wildernis so pragtig dat die uitsig vir verblyf vergoed het.

Excellent service and food, but room was freezing. No heaters, electric blankets or extra blankets.

Will call again, but not in winter.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Puik diens en kos, maar kamer was ysig koud. Geen verwarmers, warmkomberse of ekstra komberse.

Sal weer daar gaan bly, maar beslis nie in winter nie.

Nie my geld werd.

Die foto van die kamer op die webtuiste waarvoor ek bespreek het is nie die kamer wat ek gekry het nie. Ek het vir 'n dubbel-eenheid wat na die tuin front en een langs die rivier met 2 enkelbeddens. Die aanwysings en GPF kaart het ons telkens na verkeerde plek gewys. Ek het die ontvangs gekontak om my te help maar die dame wat daar werk kon nie vir my verduidelik hoe om daar te kom en voorgestel dat die bestuurder met my praat en sou my onmiddellik terugskakel aangesien ons reeds in Wildernis gearriveer het en telkemale op verkeerde bestemming aangekom het. 10 minute later, geen oproep maar gelukkig by 'n Wildernis inwoner korrekte aanwysings ontvang. Kamer skoon en netjies. Mooi uitsig en ligging oor rivier en veilige omgewing. Ontbyt was bevredigend alhoewel 'n kelner wat laaste spek krummel uit opdienbak eet voor dit minute later aangevul word nie 'n goeie prentjie skep. Kan eerder as B&B gelys word. Dis 'n mooi plek met baie potensiaal maar met beter bestuur.
