Gasvryheid en gemak uit die boonste rakke.

Deon en Annalene het uit hul pad gegaan om ons gesin van 3 en 'n ouma baie welkom te laat voel. Ons kon heerlik ontspan in die mooi tuin en die kamers was gerieflik ingerig met goeie beddens en linne. Die spasie en die mooi kwekery/teetuin aangrensend was 'n heerlike toevlug gewees.

Hospitality and comfort top notch.

Deon and Annalene went out of their way to make our family of 3 and a grandmother feel very welcome. We were able to relax wonderfully in the beautiful garden and the rooms were comfortably furnished with good beds and linen. The space and the beautiful nursery/tea garden adjacent had been a wonderful retreat.

Perfect.

Loadshedding is a problem, I know, if the guesthouse can get a generator because we could not even bath in the morning due to loadshedding, otherwise everything was great!

Hierdie gastehuis en presies wat mens nodig het as jy in die omgewing moet werk of 'n funksie bywoon. Hulle ligging is gerieflik en die verblyf is ontspannend en gemaklik.

Aangename verblyf.

Green Olive Guesthouse was heerlik om te bly. Alles was netjies, mooi skoon en lekker koffie tee en beskuit is in die kamer. Ons het oorspronklik die Wood cabin geboek, maar nadat die eienaar ons gekontak het dat daar 'n paartjie daar gaan trou en in die cabin wou slaap, het sy gevra of ons nie na die Beach Cottage wou skuif nie. Dit was geen probleem nie en ons is toe geboek vir die beach cottage. Ongelukkig toe ons arriveer, het die bruidegom en strooijonkers reggemaak in die beach cottage. Ons het 'n troue gehad om na toe te gaan en ons moes halfuur wag om in die plekkie in te kom. Ons het net 'n uur gehad om toe reg te maak en na die ander venue toe te ry. So dit was bietjie onaangenaam om te wag en dit het ons bietjie uitgestres. Die een dametjie het die wynglase en bierbottels van die bruilof party uit die kamertjie gehaal op die tafeltjie buite die beach cottage gelos wat nou nie so lekker was nie. Maar tenminste het sy vinnig die plekkie skoongemaak en vir ons skoon handdoeke gebring. Maar ons het darem lekker gebly en veilig gevoel. Die beddegoed was sag en ons het toe ontbyt by die kwekery gaan kry wat baie lekker was en gerieflik dat dit so naby was, omdat ons moes ver ry.

Pleasant stay.

Green Olive Guesthouse was lovely to stay. Everything was neat, nice clean and nice coffee tea and biscuits in the room. We originally booked the Wood cabin, but after the owner contacted us that there was a couple getting married there and wanted to sleep in the cabin, she asked if we wanted to move to the Beach Cottage. It was no problem and we were then booked for the beach cottage. Unfortunately when we arrived, the groom and groomsmen were setting up in the beach cottage. We had a wedding to go to and we had to wait half an hour to get into the venue. We only had an hour to get ready and drive to the other venue. So it was a bit unpleasant to wait and it stressed us out a bit. The one lady took the wine glasses and beer bottles from the wedding party out of the room and left them on the table outside the beach cottage, which was not so nice. But at least she quickly cleaned the place and brought us clean towels. But at least we had a nice stay and felt safe. The bedding was soft and we then went to get breakfast at the nursery which was very nice and convenient that it was so close, because we had to drive far.

Huislik.

Ons het een nag die “Beach House” gebly. Baie goed uitgelê met ‘n stoepie - omring met ‘n lieflike tuin. Mal oor die wit kraakvars linne en handdoeke. Geen ekstra charge vir die was van linne omdat ons net een nag gebly het. Laas naweek en nag in Valhalla in 'n gastehuis gebly wat ‘n addisionele R200 charge omdat ons slegs een nag geslaap het. Enigste nadeel is die geraas van die Zambesi-verkeer en vroeë kerkgangers. Sal beslis weer daar bly.

Homely.

We stayed one night in the "Beach House". Very well laid out with a porch - surrounded by a lovely garden. Love the crisp white linen and towels. No extra charge for washing linen because we only stayed one night. Last weekend and night in Valhalla in a guest house that charged an additional R200 because we only slept one night. Only downside is the noise from the Zambesi traffic and early churchgoers. Will definitely stay there again.

Very nice with good service.

Had a problem with the shower in the first unit I was in, after I brought it to their attention they moved me to another unit without any problems. Just a shame the restaurant was closed, it was a slight problem, but not the end of the world.

The chalet was clean and tidy.

We waited quite a long time before someone showed us where our chalet was. The lady at reception wasn't sure who we were or where our reservation was. Everything was clean and tidy. The sink faucet is slightly loose. But we slept very well.

Na aan die stad maar tog in die natuur, veilig en goeie waarde vir geld.

Ons het dit baie geniet en ons kon bietjie later slaap, so in die natuur. Vriendelike ontvangs en naby heerlike Green Olive restaurant vir 'n heerlike ontbyt. Ons sal enige tyd teruggaan en weer daar oorslaap.

Dit was waarlik baie mooi en gerieflik.

Was lekker om ook sommer by die kwekery te eet, geskenkies te koop en die geluk het ons getref met vermaak die een aand. Al het ons nie krag gehad a.g.v. die storms nie, sal ons steeds beslis weer kom kuier!

It was nice to also just eat at the nursery, buy gifts and luck struck us with entertainment that one evening. Even though we didn't have power due to the storms, we will definitely visit again!
