Gasvry. Behulpsaam. Netjies. Vriendelik.

Ons het gekamp. Die mistigheid deur die nag maak alles nat. Om in die kamers tuis te gaan is 'n baie beter opsie. Gerieflik skoon met eie stort en toiletgeriewe. Yskas, mikrogolf, TV, ketel, bekers, glase en koffie ens. maak die verblyf aangenaam.

Hospitable. Helpful. Tidy. Friendly.

We camped. The fog during the night makes everything wet. Staying in the rooms is a much better option. Comfortable clean with own shower and toilet facilities. Fridge, microwave, TV, kettle, mugs, glasses and coffee etc. make the stay pleasant.

Not pleasant.

Host was unaware of my booking on arrival. I was told that both the unit I had booked, as well as the one similar to that were fully booked. After some negotiating, I was given the unit. The unit was not clean, floor was dirty, curtains were dirty. A real pity, as the location is lovely, and with a little love and care, it could be a great option. Unfortunately I did not have a good experience, and won't be returning.

What a great place to stay and relax.

What a fantastic place to stay. Our room was comfortable with en-suite shower and toilet, hot water and towels provided. Rooms were serviced and kept clean. Great atmosphere and large open lawns for activities. Horses, dogs, a tame lamb and a cat all added to the homely feel of Fels Retreat. Sarina always on hand to attend to requests - she even had a pair of water pump pliers handy when I needed one! Highly recommended, and I will definitely be returning there again, probably in December.

Dit was heerlik om warm persoonlikheid van Sarina te ervaar saam met koue winternag in KZN.

Dis my tweede keer dat ek daar oornag en ek sal definitief dit weer doen. Miskien 'n aanbeveling dat daar twee pryse vir ontbyt sal wees, 'n klein en 'n groot ontbyt wat mens van kan kies. Ek voel altyd welkom en dis 'n heerlike plek om te oornag van Richardsbaai na Gauteng.

It was great to experience the warm personality of Sarina with cold winter nights in KZN.

It's my second time that I stayed overnight and I will definitely do so it again. Maybe a recommendation that there be two prices for breakfast, a small and a large breakfast one can choose from. I always feel welcome and it's a lovely place to stay overnight from Richards Bay to Gauteng.

Dit lyk nie regtig soos die fotos nie. Die verblyf was so-so. Die gemeenskaplike kombuisie was bepaald onder-standaard - ek kan dit nie aanraai nie.

Is dit net ek wat vol fiemies is? Die prys was eintlik nie duur nie - nou weet ons hoekom. Die berg agter die huis is 'n mooi agtergrond. Die ligging is eintlik nogal interessant, maar die inrypad vanaf die straat is lanklaas geskraap. Die hek het 'n knoppie, maar dis nie 'n deurklokkie nie; Dit is 'n skandeerder vir die hek. Moes 3 keer toeter druk om aandag te trek. Die afdak waarlangs ons gestop het was vol met skroot material, braairoosters ensovoort. Daar was darem vriendelike honne en 'n ponie of 2 wat kom groet het. Die kamers was skoon, maar die meubels oud. Die kopstuk van die bed was 'n ou staal venster-raam. Oulike idee, behalwe dat daar nog stukkies glas in was - eina! Die badkamer het 'n stort en 'n ander deel van die badkamer het 'n ou toilet en 'n klein wasbakkie - redelik afgeleef. Mens kan die middelmuur uitbreek en 'n baie beter badkamer bou. Miskien is ons net die tipe kliënte wat nie hier tuishoort nie. Dit het die indruk gegee dat dit meer 'n trou-geleentheid is. Ons het geselligheid gemis. Daar was bv. nie 'n stoep voor die huisie nie - net 'n afgetrapte trappie en gras en 'n draad-tafel uit 1921 (omtrent). Die "eetvertrek" waar ons soggens ons eie ontbyt gemaak en geëet het, was 'n splitpaal tipe lapa met 'n enkel kombuisie waar ek nie graag iets sal wil kook nie. Bietjie grillerig. So, in opsomming, skuus, maar ek sal nie die plek aanbeveel nie, tensy daar werklik moeite gedoen word om die ruimte netjies te maak nie. Miskien is dit net nie ons tipe van plek nie - of is ons net vol fiemies?

It doesn't really look like the photos. The stay was so-so. The communal kitchenette was definitely below standard - I can't recommend it.

Is it just me who is full of fiemes? The price was actually not expensive - now we know why. The mountain behind the house is a nice background. The location is actually quite interesting, but the driveway from the street has not been scraped for a long time. The gate has a button, but it's not a doorbell; This is a scanner for the gate. Had to honk 3 times to get attention. The shed we stopped by was full of scrap material, grills and so on. At least there were friendly dogs and a pony or 2 who came to say hello. The rooms were clean, but the furniture old. The headboard of the bed was an old steel window frame. Cute idea, except that there were still pieces of glass in it - eina! The bathroom has a shower and another part of the bathroom has an old toilet and a small sink - quite shabby. One can break out the middle wall and build a much better bathroom. Maybe we're just the type of customers who don't belong here. It gave the impression that it was more of a wedding event. We missed sociability. There was e.g. not a porch in front of the cottage - just a trodden step and grass and a wire table from 1921 (circa). The "dining room" where we made and ate our own breakfast in the morning was a split pole type lapa with a single kitchen where I would not like to cook anything. A little creepy. So, in summary, sorry, but I wouldn't recommend the place unless a real effort is made to tidy up the space. Maybe it's just not our type of place - or are we just full of fams?

Ek is regtig jammer as dit julle ervaring was. Die algemene terugvoer wat ek gekry het is dat die fotos die waarheid is. Miskien is 'rustic' net nie die ding vir julle nie, dit is die tema hier. Ou meubels, en kreatief. Miskien moet 'n mens maar gaan vir duurder plekke as jy dit kan bekostig.
Vriendelike groete,

Die rustigheid vanself.

Dit was regtig 'n rustige atmosfeer waar jy verdwaal tussen die berge en die nostalgie van plaaslewe. Sal kan doen met iets meer vir die kinders, 'n beter speelpark, miskien 'n swembad, of selfs 'n trampolien. Dis definitief weer ons slaapplek volgende keer.

The tranquility of itself.

It was really a peaceful atmosphere where you get lost among the mountains and the nostalgia of farm life. Could do with something more for the kids, a better play park, maybe a pool, or even a trampoline. It's definitely our place to sleep next time.
