Dis alles wat jy nodig het.

Die plek is skoon en netjies, en bied werklik presies alles wat mens nodig het, maar sjoe persoonlik dink ek die plek kan beslis doen met 'n bietjie van 'n "update". Tussen die beddegoed, gordyne en matte weet ek nie wat is meer desperaat vir vervanging nie! 'n "Plunger" in die kombuis sou lekker gewees het (ons het ons eie koffie saamgeneem). Maans, wat ons ontvang het, is ongelooflik vriendelik en gasvry, en ek dink mens sal sommer 'n hele dag lank met hom kan gesels!

Pleasant stay close to the sky.

Mans the caretaker was on hand to unlock the accommodation and tell us a bit about Sutherland and the weather. One of the nicest people we have met on our journey. The accommodation was clean and more comfortable than we initially expected. Would gladly have stayed a few more days.

Our stay was enjoyable, thank you.

The apartment was well appointed and neat. I missed a veggie knife and a top sheet. More efficient hooks for towels at the shower. 2-ply toilet paper would be nice. The shower is great and thank you for the warm bottom sheet.

Ons verblyf was genotvol, baie dankie.

Die woonstel is goed ingerig en netjies. Ek het 'n groentemessie gemis en 'n bo-laken. Meer doeltreffende hakke vir handdoeke by die stort. Sal ook help en dubbellaagtoiletpapier! Die stort is heerlik en dankie vir die warm onderlaken.

Cold and impersonal.

Was unsatisfied with the type of accommodation for the cost. Mattress was so hard we might as well have slept on the floor. Cold house, there was a wind blowing through the place constantly.

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

Koud en onpersoonlik.

Was ontevrede oor tipe verblyf vir koste. Matras was so hard ons kon op grond geslaap het. Koue huisie, die heeltyd 'n trek wat deur plek gaan.

Needs a lot of attention.

Maans, the caretaker, is a star. Furniture in the kitchen - chairs are gross. Sheets need to be changed. Thanks for the warm blanket and gas heater. Gas stove works well. Braai is in an impossible spot. Carpets have also seen better days.

Kort baie aandag.

Maans, die opsigter is 'n ster. Meubels in kombuis - stoele grillerig. Lakens kan gerus vervang word. Dankie vir warm kombers en gasverwarmer. Gasstoof werk ook goed. Braai net op 'n onmoontlike plek. Matte het ook al beter dae geken.

Great accommodation for our group of 6. Spacious bedrooms with electric blankets and wall heaters. If it's too cold to sit outside at the lovely braai area, then the lounge has ample space and a fire place.

Lekker gebly, mooi skoon en netjies.

Ons het lekker gebly, maar het probleme die 1st aand ondervind met die gas van die "heater" wat opgeraak het. Die 2de aand het die krag vir al die plugs in die huis afgegaan. Ons het Maans 'n boodskap gestuur maar hy het nooit opgedaag nie. Ons moes toe na die hoofhuis gaan en met 'n groot soektog die breaker van die krag gevind. Die bedrading is nie reg opgekoppel nie en is gevaarlik aangesien dit 'n brand kan veroorsaak indien daar 'n kortsluiting is. Ons het Maans en LekkeSlaap ingelig. Daar was ook te min toiletpapier, slegs een "gebruikte" een op die rol en een spaar. Ek sal aanbeveel dat daar 'n braai area nader aan die "cottage". Indien ons dit sou gebruik moes ons met die hoofhuis gedeel het en moes ons heel om die huis gestap het.

Het ons terug gevat na 'n tyd waar die lewe baie eenvoudig was.

By Lepel Lê het ons baie lekker gebly, die leefarea het baie ruimte en die huis is snoesig. Een ding wat ek kan sê is dat die kaggel in die huis gerook het. Ons het vir Mans gevra om dit skoon te maak en met spoed is hy daar. Die kaggel moet gereeld skoongemaak word, wat daar uit gekom het was baie oud. Maar in die algemeen was dit 'n fantastiese bly.

Ons het in Lepel Lê-woonstel geslaap vir twee aande. Die woonstel was wel skoon en die opsigter Maans het ons vriendelik verwelkom.

Maar die woonstel het geen gemakstoele gehad nie (nie binne of buite nie), wat beteken het ons kon nie eintlik op die stoep sit nie en ook nie binne nie. Ons moes maar op die bed lê. Sutherland self was oënskynlik toe vir die naweek. Volgens wat ons kon vasstel, was net die restaurant oorkant die gastehuis oop en nie een van die ander nie. Die Museum was ook toe. So ook die antieke winkeltjie. Om sterre te kan kyk in die aand by die sterrewag moet jy omtrent 'n jaar vooruit bespreek. Daar is 'n Anglo Boereoorlog-begraafplaas, maar geen inligting is beskikbaar êrens nie. Ons het maar 'n lang stap gevat op teen die berg maar dit was regtig omtrent al wat daar was om te doen.

Baie lekker gekuier in die huis en boma, veilig en kinder- en troeteldiervriendelik. Heerlik sentraal in dorp met alles gerieflik om die huis en kon oral stap. Dalk 'n aparte toilet kan net geriefliker wees. Sal enige tyd aanbeveel en sal ook weer gaan.

Average.

Clean and spacious. Don't expect a warm home in winter - the fireplace smells more than it supplies heat. The electric blankets help a lot. Quite close to the wrong side of town. A one-night resort rather than a weekend destination.

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

Redelik.

Skoon en ruim. Moenie in die winter 'n warm huis verwag nie - die kaggel rook meer in as wat dit hitte verskaf. Die elektriese kombers help baie. Effens naby aan die verkeerde kant van die dorp. Een-aand-oorslaapplek eerder as 'n naweekbestemming.

Lepel Lê was good for the time that we were there.

The accommodation at Lepel Lê is not on standard. The place is neat and clean. The bedding was not on standard. The sign flashes throughout the night, it was disturbing. The fridge was warm when we arrived, we had to buy ice to keep our food cold.

Didn't meet our expectations.

I cannot understand why, in today's times, you have to boil water on the stove to make coffee. There is no kettle. Linen is not up to par. Guests would've liked a TV, but that wasn't available. No place/chair/couch to sit properly. I think the accommodation would be acceptable if these things were seen to. After a long day of driving you just want to kick off your shoes on a couch, I would think. Mans, the caretaker, is truly wonderful.

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

Nie aan verwagtinge voldoen nie.

Ek kan nie verstaan hoe 'n mens in hedendaagse tyd water moet kook op die stoof om koffie te maak nie. Daar is nie 'n ketel nie. Linne is nie na wense nie. Gaste sou 'n TV wou hê, maar dis nie beskikbaar nie. Geen plek/stoel/rusbank om ordentlik te sit nie. Ek dink die verblyf is aanvaarbaar as die dinge reggemaak word. Na 'n lang dag se ry wil jy net jou skoene uitskop op 'n rusbank, sou ek dink. Mans, die opsigter, is regtig wonderlik.

Lepel Lê's response

Dear Gavin,
Thank you for comments. Please note that the advertisement specifically says " The cottage does not have a TV" & "No lounge". This was also communicated to you by confirmation e-mail sent on 13 Nov 2016.
Unfortunately the kettle uses a lot of power and causes the power to trip in winter when the electric blankets are on and that is the reason for the kettle to be used on the gas stove. Your other comments are noted and will be followed up with my caretaker.

Paula

We had a great social time in the flatlet.

Mans received us very warmly. No luxury, but luxury isn't essential. Please acquire the following: decent pots and pans (not the kind you buy at OK) and an electric kettle.

Ons het baie lekker gekuier in die woonstelgedeelte.

'n Pluimpie vir Mans wat ons baie vriendelik ontvang het. Die blyplek is nie luuks nie, maar dit is ook nie nodig om luuks te wees nie. Julle kan egter aan die volgende bietjie aandag gee: 'n stel ordentlike kastrolle (nie dié wat mens by die OK koop nie). 'n Elektriese ketel.

Everything was neat, clean, and ready when we arrived. Men took us through the house to show and explain everything.

We had a wonderful stay. Equipped with everything you need. 10 out of 10 for the braai at the backdoor! Very central location and we felt quite safe. Recommended to people who prefer to be on their own.

Alles was netjies, skoon en gereed toe ons arriveer. Mans het ons deur die huis geneem en alles gewys en verduidelik.

Ons het heerlik gebly en gekuier. Alles wat mens nodig het, is daar. 10-uit-10 vir die braaiplek by die agterdeur! Baie sentraal geleë en ons het heel veilig gevoel. Sal dit beslis aanbeveel as mense daarvan hou om op hul eie te wees.

I will definitely stay here again.

Lepel Lê is an amazing place in the heart of Sutherland. We had a wonderful time. Paula was super efficient with the reservation process. The address is slightly misleading, but the accommodation is on the Main Street in Sutherland, just next to OK store. Prime location. The place was so convenient that we were walking several times to the OK stores to buy several things. I will highly recommend this place for families travelling to Sutherland.

Thanks Sudesh for your kind comments. It is so nice that others get to enjoy our retirement home and Sutherland until we have a chance to move there one day ourselves.

Comfortable and spacious house.

We stayed in the main house and it was comfortable and very spacious. It was clean and neat. There are however some things that can be improved upon: The kettle didn't work right and switched off all the time. A new kettle would be great. On the first night the power kept tripping - there were people in the cottage next door and that probably caused an overload. We had to pull the trip-switch. There are 1970's "Marie Antoinette" champagne glasses for wine, please buy proper wine glasses! We had to go buy glasses at OK next door. There are 20 beer glasses, but no wine glasses. It's quite standard to have them in any self-catering home. The toilet didn't work, but luckily there was a plumber friend with us over the weekend. He fixed the toilet temporarily, so the FIVE of us could at least use the one toilet. The shower only worked for 2 short showers and the maximum amount of people that can stay in the guest house is EIGHT. I have no idea how eight people would shower here if there is so little hot water. The flickering Christmas lights on the veranda that kept flickering all through the night kept us up, because the curtains are so white and thin. Maybe a timer could be installed that switches the lights off around 22:00.

Gemaklike en ruim kuierhuis.

Ons het in die hoofhuis gebly en dit was gerieflik en baie ruim. Dit was skoon en netjies. Daar was egter 'n paar dinge wat definitief kan verbeter: Die ketel het nie reg gewerk nie, en het heeltyd afgeskakel. 'n Nuwe ketel sal 'n goeie aanwins wees. Die krag het die eerste aand heeltyd getrip - daar was mense in die kothuis langsaan en dit het seker 'n oorlading van krag-gebruik veroorsaak. Ons moet elke keer die "trip switch" weer gaan aanskakel. Daar is 1970 'Marie Antoinette' Champagne glase vir wyn - koop asseblief ordentlike wynglase! Ons moes by die OK langsaan wynglase gaan koop. Daar is 20 bierbekers, maar geen wynglase. Dit is tog standaard in enige selfsorg-huis! Die toilet het nie gewerk nie, en gelukkig was daar 'n plumber-vriend saam met ons vir die naweek, en hy het die toilet tydelik reggemaak sodat ons VYF mense darem die een toilet kon gebruik! Die stort het net gewerk vir twee kort storte, en die maksimum gaste wat in die hoofhuis kan bly, is AGT, ek weet nie hoe agt mense enigsins sal stort as daar so min warm water is nie. Daar is flikkerende Kersfees-liggies op die stoep wat heelnag geflikker het - en die kamers se gordyne is wit, so dit hou mens heelnag wakker. Daar kan dalk 'n timer gestel word wat die liggies afskakel om 22:00.

Dear Isobel

Thank you for your feedback.
The kettle tested by my Caretaker & seemed to be in working order, but will get him to replace in case.
These issues below will be attended to when we go down to Sutherland from Pretoria towards the end of July.
Possible electrical problem in cottage causing power to trip in cottage
Supply of suitable wine glasses
Toilet is working but repair to the toilet button for flushing will be done as it seems to get stuck and the toilet keeps running and then water does not fill up the cistern until the cistern lid is lifted and the button is pushed back up.

Apologies regarding the quantity of hot water which was caused by 4 people staying in the cottage at the same time. Cottage occupancy has now been reduced to a maximum of 2 people.
We offer to accommodate 8 people in the house as often people vacationing together prefer to stay in a house rather that individual rooms at a B&B, so trying to satisfy that need I clearly state the geyser situation in the quotation, but will state it more clearly stated in future that should the booking wish to accommodate 5 to 8 people then some people need to shower in the morning will others need to shower at night, otherwise the accommodation is not suitable.

Thank you again for your overall rating. We are not in Sutherland ourselves and are not always aware of potential problems, so we appreciate your feedback.

Dear Laetitia

Thank you for your feedback.
Bed lamp now placed next to the bed.
Electric blanket which stopped working was replaced with both sides working that same night for you by the Caretaker.
I have asked my cleaner to check bedding when washing and making beds in future.
Website now reflects that cottage does not have a TV.
I have checked with my caretaker and that carpets are definitely not dirty.

Besides these issues I hope that you have a nice time in Sutherland.
