Geboek vir 3 nagte, gery na 2de nag.

'n Plek wat myns insiens besig is om sy vorige glorie te verloor. Hoewel die huis redelik afgeleë is (die aktiwiteite is aansienlik ver van die gastehuis af) en jy bietjie van 'n dobbelsteen rol (jy weet nie met watter ander gaste jy die huis gaan deel nie), is die grootste teleurstelling die neerdrukkende gevoel wat spruit daaruit dat die plek verwaarloos voorkom.

Skoon en netjies. Kry waarvoor jy betaal.

Vriendelike mense. Hulpvaardig. Huis is uit ons perspektief oorvol en loop oor van onnodighede en goedjies waarsonder die huis baie beter sou vertoon. Maar weereens, ons is meer minimalisties en verkies minder goedjies orals.

Pragtige uitsig oor die dam vanaf die stoep, skoon, netjiese verblyf.

Die kamer was ruim en gerieflik en tipies Oviston-styl - 'n elektriese kombers sal rerig help - dis bitter koud daar. Die komberse beskikbaar is genoeg, maar hulle kort 'n skoonmaak of dalk eerder vervanging. Wat van duvets met covers wat elke keer gewas kan word - dis tog baie meer higïenies. Die feit dat daar 'n matras cover op die bed is het opgemaak vir die dungewaste lakens. Dave (inwonend in die gastehuis) het werklik uit sy pad gegaan om seker te maak ons is gerieflik en op hoogte van alles - well done. Die akkommodasie word geadverteer as bed en breakfast met addisionele etes op aanvraag / vooraf reëling beskikbaar. Dis misleidend want Murray is nie bereid om etes te maak nie - ek het darem op die ou einde afslag gekry oor die etes wat nie voorsien word nie - maar sê dan liewer van die begin af dis self-catering only. Dit was werklik onsmaaklik om met Murray te deel en ek sal aanbeveel dat voornemende gaste liewer direk met die eienaar of met Dave kommunikeer - Dave gaan rerig uit sy pad om behulpsaam te wees.

Reception by management was very friendly and professional. Accommodation was convenient. Meals (evening and morning) were very tasty. View over the dam was beautiful and the area was quiet and quiet.

Vriendelik, gemaklik, lekker kos en waarde vir geld.

Ontvangs deur bestuur was baie vriendelik en professioneel. Akkommodasie was gerieflik. Etes (aand en oggend) was baie smaaklik. Uitsig oor die dam was pragtig en die omgewing is lekker stil en rustig.

Iets anders.

Baie ou gebou uit die ontstaanjare van die dam. Met dieselfde tema toegerus. Oud en netjies. Gee mens die gevoel van oupa en ouma se huis. En laastens: Selfoondata en -sein? Wat is dit?

Groot ou huis. Mooi uitsig oor Gariep. Vriendelike ontvangs. Maaltye nie watwonders nie, maar jy kan self kosmaak en braai.

Sien hier bo. Wind oor die dam het gemaak dat ons nie gebraai het nie.

Grootste kamers denkbaar! Stylvol gemeubileer. In die gasteboek was daar kommentaar van 'n 10-ster ontbyt, maar in ons opinie was die ontbyt maar gemiddeld.

Ill equipped in the heat.

No one in the guest house slept and everyone had a long way to drive the following day. It was not slightly uncomfortable due to the heat, it was extreme discomfort. I would NEVER recommend this place. It was also very far off the main road. I enquired about this before the booking and was told it was 40 km from the N1. This is a lie. It added at least 1,5 hours onto our journey both in and out. Owners say they can't be blamed for the heat and this is true.

Teleurgesteld.

Die aanwysings was nie baie duidelik nie. Ons het nie besef dat die gastehuis so ver anderkant die Gariepdam is nie. Ons het omtrent daardie middag op pad soontoe sowat 70 kilometer gery en gevra sover as wat ons gaan waar die plek is. Ons was so teleurgesteld toe ons uiteindelik daar uitkom en ons sien 'n verwaarloosde "Bar/kroeg" teken. Dan het die gastehuis se naam ook skielik verander na Lake View B&B.

Gerieflike en suite-kamer, vriendelike diens, goeie voorligting oor roetes.

Ek het die twee dae se verblyf geniet, ek hou van die uitsig, die vriendelike diens, goeie ontbyt, netjiese en gerieflike kamer. 'n Eerste besoeker moet net seker maak van roetes en nie soos ek gemaak het, Oviston verwar met die verblyfgeriewe nader aan die damwal nie.

Sou meer van die omgewing wou sien!

Die gastehuis is geleë in 'n afgeleë gebied, geïsoleerd en ver van enige kommoditeite. Die huis is ruim en goed versorg. Die omliggende tuin is pragtig en die natuurskoon iets om te sien.

Die ouwêreldse sjarme van die gastehuis en tuin het ons asem weggeslaan.

Besonder netjies, uitsonderlik goed toegerus, ruim, alle benodigdhede tekenend van kwaliteit en sorgsaamheid. Uitstekende kommunikasie van en deur eienaar/bestuurder, besondere welwillendheid ontvang, hoewel ligging nie op hoofroetes is nie kan Lakeview Guest View beslis aanbeveel word.

A heavenly place to stay.

Faultless hospitality from Murray + Sandi and her husband, providing delicious meals and beer. It was unforgettable! Magnificent accommodation - rooms with character!! And peaceful, beautiful views of the dam, enhanced with the heady aroma of wisteria yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Our stay at Lakeview Guest House was "too good"!

'n Fantastiese uitsig oor die Gariepdam!

Ons is vriendelik ontvang, die plek is goed geleë reg langs die dam met 'n fantastiese uitsig. Gastehuise is nie ons eerste keuse nie, eerder 'n selfsorg eenheid waar jy meer privaat kan wees. Dié was 'n nuwe ervaring.

Great hospitality from host Murray, comfortable, peaceful, enjoyable.

We arrived about 2pm and had a relaxing afternoon just looking at the lake. We were able to make tea and have a cold drink. We were the only residents for the night and we did enjoy the casual relaxed atmosphere and 'help yourself to whatever you need' attitude. We had pre-arranged supper and this was duly delivered and was delicious (thank you Sandie). After supper we took a sunset stroll through the quiet village to the lake. We spent a peaceful night and after a good sleep had a great breakfast cooked by Murray and started the last leg of our homeward journey. Thank you! :)
