Quality stay at Fijnbos Manor.

I have had the opportunity to meet the owner as I booked in and he immediately made me feel welcome and at home. They are still in the process some repairs / upgrading the building and from what I could see, Fijnbos Manor will definitely become a popular destination. The owner def have an eye for detail and think the lodge will be beautiful once completed. The lodge is situated in such a perfect spot, easy access to the beach, local pub where the locals were just as friendly and inviting as at the lodge.

Dit was baie aangenaam.

Ons het 'n warm ontvangs gekry. Die veiligheid is sigbaar, nie net vir jou nie maar vir die motors ook. Die mense is vriendelik en laat jou sommer tuis voel. Ek sal enige tyd die plek aanbeveel vir ander gaste ook. Jy het ook 'n voorreg om die vroeë see breeze te kan kry.

It was very pleasant.

We got a warm welcome. The safety is visible, not only for you but for the cars as well. The people are friendly and make you feel right at home. I would anytime recommend the place to other guests as well. You also have a privilege to be able to get the early sea breeze.

Hartlike ontvangs, vriendelike en toeganklike gasvrou en -heer, behulpsame personeel, huislike atmosfeer.

Fijnbos is baie akkommoderend vir redelike versoeke vanaf gaste, wat gaste daar baie tuis laat voel.

Goeie ligging met baie potensiaal, maar kort opgradering. Voel glad nie mens kry waarde vir geld nie, absoluut die teenoorgestelde.

On-entoesiastiese assistent met ontvangs, geen informasie t.o.v. "Loadshedding" nie (twee keer op een dag), geen vuurhoutjies of aansteker vir twee mankolieke kerse nie. Voordeur bly nie toe tensy dit gesluit is nie. Stort is in die bad - baie "fancy" stortkop, maar water-stelknop is gebreek. Hele badkamer is in die 70's vasgevang. Ontbyt was ekstra - maar hulle adverteer as B&B? Foto van kamer is akkuraat, maar baie slim van Fijnbos om nie die badkamer in te sluit in die fotos nie!

Good location with lots of potential but needs upgrading. Don't feel you get value for money at all, quite the opposite.

Unenthusiastic assistant with reception, no information regarding No "loadshedding" (twice in one day), no matches or lighter for two mancolic candles. Front door does not stay closed unless it is locked. Shower is in the bath - very "fancy" shower head, but water control knob is broken. Entire bathroom is stuck in the 70s. Breakfast was extra - but they advertise as B&B? Photo of room is accurate, but very smart of Fijnbos not to include the bathroom in the photos!

Verblyf het voldoen aan behoeftes.

Wanneer 'n mens bespreek vir bed en ontbyt word dit algemeen aanvaar dat mens betaal vir die hele ervaring en dat ontbyt ingesluit is in die prys. In hierdie geval was die prys van R100 vir ontbyt (nogal buitensporig) nie ingesluit in die prys nie. Daar was ook geen melding op die webtuiste dat ontbyt nie in die prys per nag ingesluit is nie. Indien ek bewus was daarvan sou ek eerder na ander moontlikhede gekyk het wat wel ontbyt insluit. Reisigers moet vooraf vasstel of ontbyt wel ingesluit is al dan nie.

Accommodation met needs.

When you book for bed and breakfast it is generally accepted that you pay for the whole experience and that breakfast is included in the price. In this case, the price of R100 for breakfast (quite excessive) was not included in the price. There was also no mention on the website that breakfast was not included in the price per night. If I had been aware of that, I would have looked at other possibilities that did include breakfast. Travelers must determine in advance whether or not breakfast is included.

Die rustigheid van self.

Phabion het vir ons lekker ontbyt bedien. Ons was regtig tuis en nog meer. Ons het toegang tot alles gehad. Ek sou tog aanbeveel dat hulle die stort se kop verander na 'n waterbesparende een met 'n 200 mm verlenging. Ek't so skuldig gevoel met water wat so op my neerdaal ongeag of jy die vloei probeer beperk. Sal volgende keer die kinders neem.

The tranquility of self.

Phabion served us a nice breakfast. We were really at home and more. We had access to everything. I would recommend that they change the shower head to a water saving one with a 200mm extension though. I felt so guilty with water coming down on me like that regardless of whether you try to limit the flow. Will take the kids next time.

Lekker gekuier, gemaklik gebly en Paul se diens is puik.

Dankie Fijnbos vir 'n gemaklike blyplek, amper soos jou eie huis. Die kinders het die swembad geniet, Paul se omgee vir detail word waardeer en ons sal dit weer 'n basis maak om vanaf te beweeg. Daar is soveel om te doen in die area, ons gaan eenvoudig moet terug kom.

Thank you Fijnbos for a comfortable place to stay, almost like your own home. The kids enjoyed the pool, Paul's attention to detail was appreciated and we would make this a base to move from again. There is so much to do in the area, we will simply have to come back.
