Was beslis wat ons nodig gehad het na 'n lang pad.

Die 'bespreekde kamers' was great, netjies en beslis gemaklik. Die grondpad na die blyplek kort beslis 'n skraap, want die oppervlak is erg sinkplaat gery. Na die onlangse reën was daar 'n paar plaasdamme waardeur jy moes ry, maar was gelukkig deel van die opwinding.

Was definitely what we needed after a long drive.

The 'booked rooms' were great, tidy and definitely comfortable. The dirt road to the accommodation is definitely in need of a scratch, as the surface is heavily corrugated. After the recent rains there were a few farm dams you had to drive through but luckily that was part of the excitement.

Sal nie weer van die akkommodasie gebruik maak nie.

Vir 'n enkel vrou was dit glad nie aangewese nie. Na my funksie moes ek terugkeer na 'n pikdonker gebou. Geen ligte, geen sekuriteit, geen teken van ander gaste nie. Uiters onveilig gevoel. Beligting in eenheid uiters swak. Geen TV.

Will not use the accommodation again.

For a single woman it was not at all appropriate. After my function I had to return to a pitch dark building. No lights, no security, no sign of other guests. Feeling extremely unsafe. Lighting in unit extremely poor. No TV.

Hulle het generators, so geen load shedding!

Bloem is rêrig nou 'n vervalle dorp, ry eerder na 'n ander dorp en moenie die water drink nie. Plek is oulik. Dis vir konferensies, so nie persoonlik met sepies en goetertjies wat mens gewoonlik by 'n gastehuis kry nie, maar dis goeie waarde vir geld. Plek vir karavaan, baie veilig.

Bloem is really a run-down town, drive to another town instead and don't drink the water. Place is cute. It's for conferences, so not personal with soaps and goodies that you usually get at a guest house, but it's good value for money. Place for caravan, very safe.

Netjiese verblyf met alles wat jy nodig het. Gasvrou was baie behulpsaam en bereid om te help nadat ons 8 uur Oukersaand gestrand was nadat ons bespreking by ander plek nie gerealiseer het nie. Ons baie dankbaar dat sy gehelp het nadat hulle ook nie genoegsame mense gehad het wat gewerk het nie. Weereens baie dankie.

Oulike plekkie.

Dis regtig 'n oulike plekkie, maar vir die 3 dae wat my man daar was was daar glad nie warm water nie. Hy het daaroor gekla, maar niks is omtrent dit gedoen nie. Die weer was bietjie koud en dan moes hy elke dag in koue water stort en hy moes die ketel kook vir warm water om te kon skeer.

It's a really cute place, but for the 3 days my husband was there there was no hot water at all. He complained about it, but nothing was done about it. The weather was a bit cold and then every day he had to shower in cold water and he had to boil the kettle for hot water to be able to shave.

Oornagverblyf.

Ons het oornag, maar moes by vriende kuier. So net sleutel gekry en afgepak. Met aankoms, behoorlik afgepak, en agtergekom die kamer stink na nat en rook. Yskas- of waterlek het veroorsaak dat die mat nat was en stink. Wild! Lugreëling het ook baie slegte reuk gehad. Bed gerieflik. Persoonlik sal ek nie weer daar kuier nie, al was gasvrou vriendelik. Glo dit was 'n geïsoleerde geval, maar my nog steeds omgekrap.

Overnight accommodation.

We stayed the night, but had to visit friends. Just got the key and unpacked. On arrival, unpacked properly, and noticed the room smelled of wetness and smoke. Refrigerator or water leak caused the carpet to be wet and smelly. Game! Air conditioning also had very bad smell. Bed comfortable. Personally, I will not visit there again, even if the hostess was friendly. Believe it was an isolated case, but still cracks me up.

Goed vir oornag. As netheid verbeter sal ek dit weer aanbeveel.

Ongelukkig was die skoonmaak swak. Oppervlakkig lyk dit goed maar spinnerakke in badkamer, buite by tafel op stoep, waar ons wou sit, het vele sigaretstompies gelê. Het nie goeie indruk geskep nie. Matte was ook nie skoon nie. WiFi het nie gewerk nie.

Unfortunately the cleaning was poor. Superficially it looks good but cobwebs in the bathroom, outside at the table on the porch, where we wanted to sit, there were many cigarette butts. Didn't make a good impression. Carpets were not clean either. WiFi didn't work.

Overnight stay.

On arrival the room chosen and paid for, the geyser was broken. Spent the next hour or so trying to figure out where to stay with our family members. Louise was wonderful, she assisted however she could to try make us comfortable. The biggest complaint here is the cleanliness of the crockery, cutlery, kitchen area etc. The stove was probably cleaned months and months ago. There was laundry piled up against the dining area wall. We also then requested to please cook our dinner in the main kitchen where the breakfasts are served as it was raining and the smaller kitchen was so dirty, the main kitchen was just as dirty and hadn't been cleaned in a long time. Not sure if they only have one cleaner, or what the situation is. But we did not feel comfortable due to the reasons mentioned above.

Kon beter gewees het.

Die lodge lyk nie sleg nie en dit is in 'n stil area. Die pad is 'n nagmerrie en skud alles wat nie moet skud nie. My probleem is die gebreekte stoel voor die kamer en dan ook die gebreekte stoel in die kamer. My vrou het amper op die stoel gaan sit, maar gelukkig betyds agtergekom dat die pote gebreek is en die stoel heeltemal lendelam. Wat van buite af lyk na 'n pragtige plek lyk definitief nie so aan die binnekant nie. Die afwerking moet aandag kry aangesien daar baie verf-af plekke is, selfs na die lang "lockdown"-tydperk, die badkamer is nie skoon nie, die seephouer is heeltemal los en daar is swart muf op die grouting tussen die teëls wat aandui dat die plek nie goed skoongemaak word nie. Die ketel is so vuil binne van aanpaksel dat ons nie eers wou koffie drink nie. Ek het Tuscan Lodge afgewys om hier te bly maar ongelukkig sal ek nie weer daar bly nie. Die bestuurderes is 'n aangename, vriendelike dame. Klein verbeteringe sal die plek baie beter laat lyk en voel. Dankie in elkgeval.

Could have been better.

The lodge is not bad looking and it is in a quiet area. The road is a nightmare and shakes everything that shouldn't shake. My problem is the broken chair in front of the room and then also the broken chair in the room. My wife almost sat down on the chair, but fortunately noticed in time that the legs were broken and the chair was completely paralyzed. What looks like a beautiful place from the outside definitely doesn't look like that on the inside. The finish needs attention as there are many paint-off spots even after the long "lockdown" period, the bathroom is not clean, the soap dish is completely loose and there is black mold on the grouting between the tiles indicating that the place is not cleaned well. The kettle is so dirty inside from starting that we didn't even want to drink coffee. I turned down Tuscan Lodge to stay here but unfortunately I will not stay there again. The managers are a pleasant, friendly lady. Small improvements will make the place look and feel much better. Thanks anyway.

Op pad terug vanaf PE na Gauteng.

Dit was die 2de keer dat ons daar oorgebly het. Ons was weereens baie hartlik verwelkom en het tuis gevoel, lekker geslaap en kon vars en uitgerus die reis verder neem die volgende dag. Afgesien van die feit dat die ligging van die gastehuis bietjie uit die stad is en die toegangspad nie te goed was nie, het die ontvangs en netheid van die kamers daarvoor opgemaak.

On the way back from PE to Gauteng.

It was the second time we stayed there. We were once again very warmly welcomed and felt at home, slept well and were able to take on the rest of our trip the next day refreshed and well rested. Apart from the fact that the location of the guest house is a bit out of the city and the access road was not too good, the reception and cleanliness of the rooms made up for it.

Ek sou nie daar bespreek het as ek nie vooraf geweet het daar is nie etes. Ek het eers uitgevind na ek betaal het dat daar nie etes is. Moes na lang ure op die pad weer in die kar klim.

Die ontvangs was hartlik, gasvry en die kamer mooi en skoon, met alles wat ons nodig gehad het.

Met ons aankoms was ons hartlik verwelkom en het dadelik tuis gevoel. Die kamer was modern en mooi skoon en netjies, met alles wat ons nodig gehad het tot ons beskikking. Die pad na die lodge is nie duidelik gemerk nie en moes daar van Google Maps gebruik gemaak word. Daar is ook 'n kort stukkie (1 - 2 km) wat grondpad is en bietjie sinkplaat gery is (munisipale pad en nie lodge se verantwoordelikheid nie). Ons het die 2 dae kuier by die lodge en sy mense baie geniet en ook elke oggend 'n heerlike ontbyt (teen ekstra koste) gehad. Sal beslis weer hier kom oorbly as die geleentheid dit vereis.

The reception was warm, hospitable and the room nice and clean, with everything we needed.

Upon our arrival we were warmly welcomed and immediately felt at home. The room was modern and nice clean and tidy, with everything we needed at our disposal. The road to the lodge is not clearly marked and Google Maps had to be used. There is also a short section (1 - 2 km) which is a dirt road and some corrugated iron has been driven over (municipal road and not the lodge's responsibility). We really enjoyed the 2 days visiting the lodge and its people and also had a delicious breakfast every morning (at extra cost). Will definitely stay here again if the occasion calls for it.

Basic accommodation but very noisy throughout the night.

Basic accommodation close to N1. Unfortunately, the rooms are next to the function venue and the noise throughout the night makes it impossible to sleep. Could do with upgrading.

Die kamer het 'n onaangename reuk gehad, asof daar gerook word, en die badkamer het ook nie lekker geruik nie.

Ek's jammer, maar ons was teleurgesteld. Ook geen haardroër nie, moes vir een vra. Die restaurant wat aanbeveel was se kos was van 'n baie swak gehalte. Ons sal nie weer daar oorslaap nie. Die tee en koffie in die kamer kan ook verbeter word.

Dit was 'n aangename ervaring. Kamer 4 was heerlik warm ten spyte van 'n ysige koue naweek. Daar was 'n probleem met die toilet se sitplek. Ons het dit gerapporteer en dit is dadelik hetstel. Ongelukkig het dit weer probleme gegee.

Sal dit aanbeveel vir ander en weer daar tuisgaan.

Was not satisfied at all - unfortunately will not stay at Monte Christo again. What a disappointment!

Road to it was bad. Carpets were dirty and the room and bathroom just felt dirty. There was a toothpick on the carpet in the room upon arrival. Room was self-catering but there was only 1 plate, 2 glasses and 1 spoon. Bathroom needs renovation. The shower kept leaking on you when you were in the bath. One had to hold the button all the time. Constantly feeling like something is biting you. Was very disappointed unfortunately! Have stayed in Bloem a lot and wanted to try something new this time but will not stay here again.

Baie dankie vir die uiters gerieflike akkommodasie en warm ontvangs! Ek sou graag langer as net een aand wou oorbly.

Eintlik te 'n kort verblyf om 'n regverdige resensie neer te pen, maar ek vermoed dat enige besoeker uiters gemaklik, veilig en plesierig sal kan kuier.
