Ons was gedurend op hoogte gehou en vriendelik ontvang.

'n Waterpyp het in die area gebars en daar was geen water. Die gastehuis het on met emmers water voorsien vir die toilet en ook voortdurend op hoogte gehou met die vordering om die problem op te los.

Ons was baie vriendelik ontvang en verwelkom, en die akkommodasie was beter wat ons verwag het.

Die verblyf was skoon en netjies, en baie gerieflik na 'n lang dag se reis. Gariep Gardens is gerieflik halfpad tussen ons beginpunt en eindbestemming.

Baie goed vir oorslaap op pad na Kaapstad.

Hulle moes ons skuif na 'n ander slaapplek om ons sleepwa van 5 m te akkommodeer, alhoewel ek met die bespreking gevra het of dit reg sal wees.

Goeie bed en skoon.

Uiters swak stort/badgeriewe. Geen toesluit moontlikhede vir voertuig en sleepwa nie. Patetiese swembad met uiters gevaarlike los en skerp teëls. Geen dekor beplanning, smaakloos en vanuit stokou era. Stokou buis-TV. Misleidende fotos.

Gariep Gardens's response

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.

Gariep Gardens's response

Beste Doret,
Jammer oor die braaiskottel. Gaste het dit net so gebruik en in die kas veggesteek. Aai tog! Ons gaan die bed in die stoepkamer vervang.

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.

Gariep Gardens's response

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.

Gariep Gardens's response

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. Hope to see you soon.

Gerieflike oorslaapligging gedurende lang reis.

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. Ons het lekker buite gesit en die stilte en die sterre geniet.

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. Sal baie beslis weer in daar gaan bly as ons Gariep verby/toe gaan!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Absoluut wonderlik.

Ons is hartlik verwelkom deur Johan en sy vrou. Hulle het ons inteendeel op 'n sekere punt ontmoet en vandaar na Gariep Gardens geneem. Ons het onmiddelik tuis gevoel en die eenheid was presies soos wat ons gehoop het. Gerieflik, goed toegerus en privaat genoeg. Ek het ongelukkig die eerste aand 'n slegte ondervinding gehad, maar Johan en sy vrou was gou daar om my vriendin by te staan en het ook sommer die plaaslike klinieksuster ingeroep om na my om te sien. Baie dankie vir die ondersteuning. Dit het nie ongesiens verby gegaan nie! Hoop ons sien julle binnekort weer.

Greetings Gideon,
This is a very disturbing review which I have investigated thoroughly and found your review to be correct in terms of the cleaning and algae. We recently employed a new cleaning lady to service this unit and found that she was certainly NOT doing her job and have consequently terminated her services. This Seagull unit was opened as a single night sleepover unit to be used when all our other 14 units are full and our booking clerk should have placed you in our lovely Ting Tinkie unit.

My humblest apology, we will send you a free stay voucher and hope to see you soon.

Economical class, not business class.

The unit is a pre fab building on somebody's back yard. It's one building divided into units. When the neighbours enter or leave it makes quite a noise. The ablution is so small that you can't use it without leaving the door open. The soap dish is in the middle of the sink so your head hits it when you bend down to use the sink. The fridge wobbles. I fixed it myself without much effort. Parking was in the mud and there was no proper mat outside on which to wipe your shoes.

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

Dis ekonomiese klas, nie besigheids klas nie.

Die eenheid is 'n pre-fab gebou in iemand se agterplaas. Dit is een gebou opgedeel in verskillende eenhede. Waneer bure inkom of uitgaan is 'n dit groot geraas. Die ablusie is so klein dat jy dit nie kan gebruik sonder om die deur oop te los nie. Die seepbakkie is in die middel van die wasbak geplaas sodat jy jou kop daarteen stamp waneer jy buk om die wasbak te probeer gebruik. Die yskas staan en waggel. Ek het dit self reggestel met min moeite. Parkering was in die modder en geen behoorlike mat is aan die buitekant om jou skoene af te vee nie.

Ons het baie lekker gebly.

Die blyplek was mooi skoon en netjies. Genoeg spasie buite vir kinders om te speel en vir familie om buite te braai en gesellig te verkeer. Kombuis was goed toegerus met alles wat benodig word. Slegs een voorstel: Aangesien daar 8 mense kan slaap, kan 'n groter tafel in die kombuis aangebring word waar almal kan sit en eet. Daar is genoeg spasie daarvoor. Verder was alles puik.

Good day Dalene,

Ons sal 'n plan vir groter tafel maak.
Dankie vir die resensie.

Groete
Robin

'n Skoon kamer met goeie kliëntediens verskaf nie 'n goeie nagrus nie.

Rus is wat nodig is as mens die dag ver ry, wat gewoonlik die geval is as jy by Gariepdam stop. Met die swak gehalte bed wat ons gehad het was ons al 02:00 die oggend wakker. Ons lywe was seer en moeg gelê op die bed wat nie ondersteuning gee nie. En dan rol jy middel toe as lê. My voorstel is dat die kamer eers gesluit moet word totdat die bed vervang is met iets ordentliks. My versoek was duidelik dat ons 'n stewige bed benodig vir die aand. Geen aandag of terugvoer is gegee oor die versoek nie. Hierdie plek sleep Gariepdam se naam deur die modder, net om 'n paar rand in die sak te sit.

Hi Marius
I was aware of your complaint and request IRO the review you left in the unit.
I asked Johan (Our Manager) to test the bed, which he did and he felt it was comfortable.
However, I always take the side of our beloved guests and we will replace this bed with a brand new Simonz Bed.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention and my apology for the bed nights rest.
My office will be in contact with you to offer you a free stay voucher.
Kind Regards
Robin van den Berg ( Owner)

We were well received by Johan and enjoyed a super short stay in a clean, comfortable and pleasant facility.

This is a most comfortable unit. Clean, well appointed and provided all which we needed. The pool facility is wonderful and the environment safe. I would recommend this facility.

Hi Rojhey
Thanks for the heads-up regarding the water pressure in the shower in our Loerie unit.
We investigated and found that the shower head was chalked up and did a quick clean and now works perfectly.
Thanks again.

Quite nice for an overnight stay.

We had a great stay, even though it was just the night, but the place is well-appointed for an overnight stay. Shower could do with a new head and the kitchen needs blinds. Solid overnight accommodation.

Dit was heel aangenaam vir 'n oornagpunt.

Ons het baie lekker gebly, was nou wel net vir een aand, maar die plekkie is goed uitgerus vir 'n oornagpunt. Die stort kan wel doen met 'n nuwe stortkop en gordyne/blinders in die kombuis, maar verder het ons lekker oornag.

Vol gasvryheid en skoon.

Was vriendelik verwelkom, met die nodige koue water en ys in vrieskas. Water was warm vir stort en ons kon self afkoel in 'n lifelike 'splash pool'.

Vriendelike ontvangs, voldoende ingelig, skoon en gerieflik en heerlik oornag.

Gariep Gardens het 'n ideale persoon om gaste te ontvang en tuis te laat voel. Hy het al ons vrae beantwoord en plekke uitgewys en aanbeveel. Die akkommodasie is skoon, netjies en ideaal vir twee persone en behoorlik toegerus. Weens die feit dat die badkamer nie vars lug kry nie, sal ek 'n uitsuigwaaier daarin aanbeveel! Ons was ook nog gelukkig om 30% afslag te kry, wat dit baie goedkoop gemaak het! Ek sal hierdie akkommodasie te enige tyd by vriende aanbeveel. Ons het dit baie geniet.

Dankie Casper

Dit was fantasties.

Dit was baie netjies, net die handdoeke wat bietjie vuil was, anders geen probleem.

Hi Kim
Thanks for pointing out the towels that were a bit "off-white".
We have replaced these towels.
Thanks and hope to see you soon.

Heerlik en ontspanne.

Ons verblyf was baie aangenaam. Johan was baie vriendelik en het geen moeite ontsien om ons te verwelkom nie. Ons sal beslis weer van Gariep Gardens gebruik maak om oor te slaap. Net een voorstel: 'n Lig buite by die braai sou net die kroon gespan het.

We really should have stayed longer, the place was exceptionally clean and very very child friendly. The splash pool was fun and super relaxing after a long drive. Johan was lovely, friendly and very professional. Thank you for making our trip back to Cape Town just perfect!

I'm not going back to that place.

I didn't even stay at Gariep Gardens, was at some place called Rose Cottage to my surprise. So I wouldn't go back to that place.
