Perfect, halfway stop. Clean and spacious with comfortable beds. Friendly service from the host.

Would recommend to others a perfect, halfway stop.

Overnight stay.

Overall our stay was good and the unit exceeded our expectations in terms of amenities. The unit provided everything we needed for comfort on a cold windy winter evening. We loved the built in braai in the kitchen. Our hosts were friendly, welcoming and very accommodating to our personal needs and requests. Personal feedback for host: Perhaps consider installing an extractor fan in the bathroom, since there is no window. The geyser was only partially warm, not hot. The walls requires decent sound insulation installed, since they are paper thin. wood panel walls with zero sound insulation. We were unaware of people living next door and were startled awake by the neighbors snoring and peoples movements adjacent to our bedroom and later from the washing machine. This experience was very unpleasant, as at first we thought there was an intruder in the unit, until we realized it's next door. It was awkward, we felt our privacy was reduced significantly. We will probably not book again at this unit, unless alterations were made.

Afwerking is nie op standaard nie.

Kraan is los in kombuis. Stort se water loop nie uit nie. Badkamer loop uit kombuis m.a.w kombuis sit in die middel van kamer en badkamer. Foto's is bedrieglik, als is daar maar net die mooi gedeeltes is op foto's. Te duur vir wat jy kry.

Nie aagenaam vir die prys wat ons betaal het nie.

Vir die prys wat betaal is en wat ons ervaar het, was dit nie goed nie. Sou at least gedink het daar sou sjampoe, seep ens. beskikbaar wees. Geen afdroogdoek beskikbaar of waar mens een sou ophang nie. Nie een van die deure maak ordentlik toe nie. Die grout by die bad is uit en lyk net gagga. A. g. v die drywall tussen die eenhede het die lawaai van die bure se TV ons gepla en kon nie vroeg gaan slaap nie. Beddens se kopstukke is los. Het nie die vorm voltooi nie, geen pen gehad of voorsien om dit in te vul nie.

Dis 'n rustige plek om te ontspan voor jy die res van jou ver pad aandurf.

Ons was skepties toe ons die plek van buite gesien het, maar heel beïndruk toe ons binnegaan. Hy is skoon, sinvol gemeubileer en gerieflik. Buite is 'n heerlike braaiplek vir as dit nie reën nie. Ons het lekker gerus en was die volgende oggend amper te lui om op te staan. Dankie vir die geleentheid om daar te oornag.

Glad nie plek vir lang vakansie. Net geskik vir een nag se oornag.

Die plek is hopeloos te duur. Ons het by 'n plek in Gordonsbaai gebly. Die prys was soortgelyk. Jy kan die twee nie vergelyk nie. Die verblyf in Gordonsbaai was silwerskoon. Het soos 5 ster-verblyf gelyk. Gariep Gardens: Die stort het geen gordyn. Toiletsitplek-deksel vuil. Seephouer vuil. Ou bad mat voor stort. (Was te bang om daarop te trap. Het sandale gedra toe ek gestort het.) Foto's van hoe vertrek lyk is akkuraat maar nie van hoe dit buite lyk nie. Binnekant van ketel moet skoon gemaak word. Ons het besluit om so gou as moontlik die volgende dag te ry.

Ons verblyf was regtig baie netjies.

Die een kamer het ongelukkig net baie na rook geruik, alhoewel daar oral rook verbode bordjies op was. Verder baie netjies en gerieflik. Ons het regtig lekker geslaap. Die fasiliteite is oud, eenvoudig, maar netjies en gerieflik.

My stay was disappointing.

I wasn't expecting much because the ad had said it was a no frills type of accommodation. However I wasn't expecting the place to be dirty and dusty which made my kids get sick with hay fever. At first glance it looked okay but as my kids started sneezing I looked a bit closer around the apartment and found dusty cabinets, a lot of dust under the beds and behind the curtains and couches. It was as if the place hadn't been thoroughly cleaned for ages. The water pipes leaked in the bathroom and outside and in the morning after everyone had taken a bath there was a pool of dirty water around the entertainment area from the leaking pipes.

Baie dankie dat ons so vriendelik ontvang is by die motorhawe. Wat 'n heerlike verrassing toe ons 'n pragtige skoon plek ontvang met verwarmers reeds aan. Ons kon heerlik stort en in kraakvars linne inkruip en sowaar nog 'n verrassing - die warmkombers was reeds aan en die bed was heerlik warm. Baie dankie, ons het heerlik gebly!

Die badkamer was baie vuil veral die stort, die swart aanpaksels sit op die teëls. Dit was nogal grillerig. Die res van die kamer was baie mooi en netjies.

Greetings Hans.
These tiles were laid in 1972 and the grouting has coloured.
We have tried our best to get them back to shiny white, but to no avail.
Having said this, I have now decided to tear down all the tiles, break out the shower, replace the basin system and completely re-tile the bathroom with a good new modern look.
Come again in a months time, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Basiese, maar skoon oornagverblyf op Gariep Dam dorpie.

Die eenheid was skoon en netjies. Ons het gesukkel om die bestuur in die hande te kry gedurende 'n elektrisiteitsprobleem wat aan die eenheid gekoppel was vir 90% van ons tyd daar. Hoewel dit bitter ongerieflik was, is ons ook 'n verskoning aangebied, sowel as gratis nag vorentoe. Ons het die manier van probleemoplossing na afloop van die insident baie waardeer.

Teleurstellend, glad nie waarde gekry.

Linne is ongestryk en oud. Ingangsdeur se verf dop af en lyk soos die ingang na 'n stoorkamer. Besem en skoppie staan in die die leefarea en is uiters onprofessioneel. Badkamer is baie klein, ongeveer 1 meter breed, en die badkamerdeur moet versigtig hanteer word omdat dit van die reeling afval. Die tipe lig in die badkamer word gewoonlik buitenshuis gebruik. Die kaste in die kombuis is besig om te vrot. Die reuk in die eenheid ruik asof iemand daarin gerook het, onaangenaam.

Ons verblyf was glad nie aangenaam.

Die ontvangs was nie professioneel. Ons indruk was dat Gariep Gardens nie bewus was van ons verblyf. Die waterstelsel in die badkamer werk nie. Die lugversorger is nie aangenaam. Dit raas verskriklik. Die badkamer is ver vanaf die kamer. Vloermatte blyk vuil te wees. Ons sal beslis nie weer by Gariep oornag of aanbeveel nie.

Net as 'n oorslaap op ons reis na JHB.

Foto's kan baie bedrieglik wees. Die plekkie was skoon en netjies maar. Die venster kan nie oopmaak nie, want dit is toegeskroef met skroewe. Lugversorger werk nie. Die voordeur kan nie oopmaak nie so daar is geen vars lug wat deur die plek kan sirkuleer nie. Dit is bedompig en baie warm in die somer. Die dubbelbed is van so 'n aard dat op die grond slaap 'n beter opsie is.

Probleme met koue water se druk saam met boorgatwater maak dat jy nie kraanwater wil drink nie. Vir 'n selfsorg-eenheid kort daar heelwat goed in die kamers as jy sou wou kos maak. Het beter verwag. Na 'n lang dag se ry wil jy ook nie hoor daar is nie warm water nie, want die solar geyser kon nie werk oor dit bewolk was nie. Weet dit gebeur seker nie veel by Gariep nie, maar vir sulke dae sou 'n elektriese geyser handig wees.

Ons het in Riedler gebly.

Binnebraai was lekker want die weer was sleg. Toe die braai egter begin rook en ons die agterdeursleutel soek was daar nie een nie. Al die vensters is ook fisies met skroewe van buite af vasgeskroef en kan dus glad nie oopmaak nie. Die hele eenheid was toe onder die rook en dit was 'n baie slegte ervaring en 'n definitiewe gesondheidsgevaar op daai stadium. Ons moes vir ure met die voordeur oop sit om te wag dat die rook tot so mate kon uitgaan dat ons kon slaap. Die hout was nie nat nie het dit by Gariep Supermark gekoop. Glad nie 'n goeie ervaring nie.

Overnight stay en route to final destination.

We were there for a very short stay, literally overnight. Our view is that the place was suitable for purpose and met our expectations for such a short stay. We were generally happy with the service we got from our host. We would need to be there longer though for a more extensive review.

Hi Andre,
Ja, dit is maar so, dit is die nuwe elektromagnetiese geysers en hulle het net 30 lt warm water, een vordeel is dat dit, maar net 14 minute vat on weer warm water to gooi! In somer is dit nie 'n groot probleem nie maar, boetie, winter skrik jy as die koue water deurkom.

Photos on the website are very confusing. Swimming pool looks big just to the find something that looks like a bath.

Beds not in good condition, especially in the patio room, almost impossible to sleep there. We found a dirty braai dish in the cupboard and ants are a big problem.

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

Foto's op die webtuiste is baie verwarrend. Swembad lyk groot om net tot verbasing amper 'n bad te kry.

Beddens nie in 'n goeie toestand nie, veral in die stoepkamer, amper onmoontlik om daar te slaap. Ons het 'n vuil braaiskottel in die kas gekry en miere is 'n groot probleem.

Ry verby.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang. Daar was wel geen swembad soos in die foto by ons eenheid nie, ons is nie ingelig indien daar 'n swembad was om te gebruik. Die skuifdeur na die badkamer kon skaars oop en toe. Die krag was 'n groot probleem. Teen 22:00 is die krag af, nie a.g.v. Eskom nie. Ons het herhaaldelik probeer om dit by die DB-bord aan te skakel. A.g.v. van geen krag, was daar geen waaier/lugversorging nie en geen warm water om te stort of vroeg volgende oggend om water te kook vir koffie. Deur die aand tussen 01:00 en 02:00 was daar agter ons eenheid mense, kon stemme en voetstappe hoor, wat deur die rommelsakke gegrawe het. Bitter min slaap ingekry na 'n lang pad en baie moeg vir 'n 2de skof op die pad.

Gariep Gardens 's response

Die Reen het blykbaar in die DB-bord ingereën. Dit is die volgende dag herstel. 50 meter weg is 'n swembad, ons bestuurder het dit vir julle gewys. Daar is ons Seagull-eenheid agter ons mooi groot 4 slaapkamer huis, waar julle was. Dit was ons ander gaste wat julle gehoor het.

Baie ongelukkig.

Ons kussingsslope was baie vuil, daar was te min glase vir hoeveelheid gaste wat daar kan bly. Teëls by swembad is gebreek en staan skerp punte uit. Ons kind het sy voet oopgesny. Die huis/dak kraak as wind net bietjie waai. Die huis voel baie koud en onwelkom.

Hi Charlene,
Apart from the pillow slips, which I have now sorted, they were washed in the water supplied from Free State Water, which was a little brown, definitely not 'vuil'.
The tiles have been re-seated.

Very disappointing.

The power was out for 2 days in Gariep before our arrival. I only received a text message on the day of our arrival saying that there was a power failure in Gariep and that it was not sure when the power would come again. Upon arrival, Johan informed us that it would be days before the power would be back on. Due to the power outage there was also no water! We had a group of youngsters for neighbours who made a lot of noise. There was no site supervision.

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

Baie teleurstellend.

Die krag was reeds vir 2 dae af in Gariep voor ons aankoms. Ek het eers op die dag van ons aankoms 'n SMS ontvang wat se dat daar 'n kragonderbreking in Gariep is en dat dit nie seker is wanneer die krag weer aan sal kom nie. Met aankoms het Johan ons ingelig dat dit dae sal wees voor die krag weer sou aan wees. As gevolg van die krag onderbreking was daar ook geen water nie! Ons het 'n groep jongmense vir bure gehad wat baie geraas het. Daar was geen toesig op die perseel nie.

Gariep Gardens 's response

Andre, dis Afrika en jy weet wat hier in RSA aangaan met ESKOM en die droogte. Diens is nog iets wat 'n absolute skande is in die RSA.
Een van ESKOM se transformers het geblaas en dit het ons behoorlik in die dwang gelaat. Ons is hand en mond belowe dat die krag so gou as moontlik herstel sal word, dus die rede hoekom ons eers ons gaste die oggend van hulle aankoms laat weet het.
In terme van die groep jong mense wat geraas het, as jy vir Johan gebel het en dit vir hom dit vertel het, sou hy daardie probleem sommer dadelik uit sorteer het.
Kom kuier graag weer.

Hi Peter,
Glad you enjoyed your stay. There have been some burglaries in Gariep Dam lately, so we have instructed and await burglar proofing for all opening windows. However, as a temporary solution, we have screwed the windows shut. We will reverse this within a couple of days when our burglar proofing arrive. Our apologies. At least there are fans and aircons.

Dankie Johan vir jou vriendelikheid om ons by die vulstasie te ontmoet. Vriendelike ontvangs. Gariep Gardens is skoon, netjies en gerieflik. Dit is meer as geskik vir ons doeleindes as oorslaap vir een nag. Die solar geyser het meer as genoeg warm water verskaf vir die 3 van ons om lekker warm te stort.

Wat ‘n heerlike kuier! Ons is goed ontvang, mooi deur als gewys en het ons 5 nagte besonders geniet! Ons eenheid het ‘n binnebraai gehad wat ‘n absolute bederf was! Eenheid was ruim, baie netjies en goed toegerus! Ons is tot verras met nuwe beddegoed en handdoeke in die middel van ons verblyf! Enigste kommentaar: As ek geweet het ons eenheid het ‘n DVD-speler sou ek ‘n paar flieks saamgevat het vir die lekker koue aande! Ek was wel onbewus van daardie luuksheid.

Daar was geen warm water nie.

Die eenheid maak gebruik van solar om die water te verhit. Dit het die heeldag gereën en daar was geen warm water nie. Ek verstaan nie dat die webtuiste so 'n eenheid kan ondersteun nie.

Gariep Gardens 's response

Hi Pieter,
Excuse my reply in English.
You certainly can't blame the website, we have been on it for around 10 years now and have a great number of good reviews.
In terms of the hot water, you were clearly warned that due to the rainy and overcast conditions and the fact that it's -4 degrees Celsius at night, that the solar geysers would only provide you with hot water for either an evening shower or a morning shower but certainly not both. You did not heed our warning.
We have around 15 days in a year when conditions are so poor that even the solar geysers take strain, during this period, we provide our guests with "free stay vouchers", so expect your "free stay voucher" shortly from our admin office. We will, however, not be changing over to electric powered geysers.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Aangenaam.

Alhoewel oud, was alles in werkende toestand. Die stort se warm water het skaars gedrup wat dit onaangenaam maak in koue weer.

Seagull is voldoende vir 'n oornagbestemming.

Die blyplek was netjies. Ongelukkig het die personeel nie seker gemaak dat die warmwaterstelsel aan is nie en was die water koud die volgende oggend. Het self die stelsel aan- en afgesit wat dit toe herstel het.

Dankie Piet.
Ja, Nee, soms hak die ou koppe uit en hulle vergeet van die geyser aansit.
Dankie vir jou besoek, sien jull weer.

Baie aangenaam.

Al wat gepla het was toe ons bure gekry het. Probleem was ons elke woord hoor wat hulle gepraat. Dit was 'n probleem vir 'n mens se privaatheid. Verder 100%.

Hi Pieter,
It's very quite at Gariep Dam and noise travels in this environment. One can hear a "ting tinkie" Ting and a "tok tokkie" Tok.
Thanks for the 5-star review.
Regards,
Management

Very quiet.

The only problem is the hot water. But as the caretaker told us, they are still busy fixing the places. Furthermore, it is beautiful. Friendly reception.

Baie rustig.

Enigste problem is die warm water. Maar soos die opsigter vir ons gesê het, hulle is nog besig om die plekkies reg te maak. Verder is dit pragtig. Vriendelike ontvangs.

Safe. Nice to chill with friends and family. Not noisy at all.

It was nice staying there, enough water, actually everything we needed was there. The only thing was is that there weren't enough towels.

Great accommodation!

Reception was very friendly and helpful. He explained all the roads to us as well as where we could find a restaurant. It is really very pleasant accommodation for two people. There is air-conditioning and extra blankets for colder weather. The kitchen is well equipped with a two-plate stove, a mini oven, microwave and a big fridge. Would love to stay there a few days more, because it is quiet and peaceful with a braai in front of the door.

Baie goeie verblyf!

Ontvangs baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Hy het ons al die paaie verduidelik asook waar ons 'n winkel en restaurant kan kry. Dis regtig baie aangename verblyf vir twee persone. Daar is 'n lugverkoeler en ekstra komberse vir koeler weer. Kombuis baie goed ingerig met tweeplaatstofie, oondjie, mikrogolf en n groot koelkas. Sal graag 'n paar dae daar bly, want dis stil en rustig met selfs 'n braai voor die deur.

The place is good and welcoming. It is convenient to the local places of interest. Facilities are fine. Nonetheless, please work on your TV sets (Old Type).

The place is clean both outside and inside. We had a very good welcome by Johan who was on time to receive us and took us to the place to show us everything in it. Very clean and welcoming. Nonetheless, I was not happy with the TV set, it was too small and an old box type. The facility needs to improve on that to make guests' stay more comfortable.

Clean and neat - perfect for a stop over.

Bed was comfortable, shower was hot. Only concern for us was the aircon is noisy.

Dear Mark,

Thank you for your review. We will have a peek at the noisy air-conditioner and fix it.

Family with young children

The house was spacious enough for our family with 3 children.

We chose Gariep Dam area because it is halfway between Gauteng and the Cape and that was a wise decision. The accommodation in the town is just not as comfortable as we are used to. The house was spacious enough and neat. It is an asbestos building and therefore becomes very hot, but there was one room with an air-con. The television has a channel service that we do not know but we could at least entertain our younger daughter with it. There isn't good security and the town gets very dark at night.

Die huis was ruim genoeg vir ons gesin met 3 kinders.

Ons het Gariep Dam-area gekies omdat dit half pad is tussen Gauteng en die Kaap en dit was toe 'n wyse besluit. Die verblyf op die dorp is net nie so gemaklik as waaraan ons gewoond is nie. Die huis was ruim genoeg en netjies. Dit is 'n asbesgebou en word dus baie warm, daar was darem een vertrek met 'n air-con. Die televisie het 'n kanaaldiens wat ons nie ken nie maar ons kon darem die jonger meisiekind daarmee "entertain." Daar is nie goeie sekuriteit nie en die dorp word donker in die nag.

Baie basiese verblyf, slegs geskik vir oornagrusplek op die lang roete van die Kaap na Pretoria.

Geen ontvangs by aankoms en geen aanduiding van wat mens te doen staan om toegang tot verblyf te kry nie - moes iemand bel om vir ons te kom oopsluit. Geriewe baie basies en oud.

Gariep Gardens 's response

Greetings Carl,

Thank you for your review. We will certainly try to make some improvements to our meet-and-greet procedures. However, our confirmation letter does warn you that we do not have an actual reception area and that you should phone our manager when you about 20 minutes out. Johan will then guide you to your unit and ensure all is okay and explain all to you. Seems there was a breakdown in this procedure somewhere. Please accept our apologies.

Hope to see you soon again.

Regards,
Robin (Owner)
