Peaceful and beautiful nature!

They've done everything you can think of, already for you. Most beautiful place. There are up to a Panado or 2 that you sometimes forget. Definitely worth it. Delighted.

Rustig en beeldskone natuur!

Alles waaraan mens kan dink, het hulle reeds vir jou gedoen. Pragtigste plek. Daar is tot op 'n Panado of 2 wat mens soms vergeet. Absoluut die moeite werd. Heerlik gebly.

Rus vir die siel.

Wat 'n lekker plekkie om te oornag. Kinders het so lekker gespeel op die plaas. Kamers is pragtig met alles wat jou hart begeer - selfs noodkassie met Panado en Eno’s in. Die piekniek-braaimandjie wat ons bestel het was heerlik. Ons sal vir seker weer terug wees.

Fantasties, beste oorslaapplek nog.

Die beste oornagplek nog! Was aangenaam verras in hoe netjies en skoon die kamers was. Baie fyn detail in alles. Die gasvrou is fenomenaal. Alles was in plek met ons aankoms. Die etes is regtig waarde vir geld. Ons kon regtig nie alles geëet het nie. Die omgewing is pragtig ten spyte van die erge droogte wat die boere tans ervaar. Hierdie plek is regtig 'n stukkie goud! Sal vir seker weer daar oornag of dalk langer bly!

Farm fun with animal interactions, wide spaces to walk around and a splash pool to cool off.

A piece of heaven in the Karoo where you can find your soul in the open again. We were able to make friends with the curious Nguni cattle, pet the horses and give the bottle-fed lambs milk. Lovely, spacious room with everything you need and a beautiful garden to make you feel at home. The bar offered us a treat in the heat and the pool was refreshing. Marene showed us the farm and we learned new things about nature. We were able to wander around to our heart's content and take beautiful pictures of the animals and nature.

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

Plaasplesier met diere-interaksies, wye ruimtes om in rond te loop en ’n plaspoel om in af te koel.

’n Stukkie hemel in die Karoo waar mens weer jou siel kan vind in die ooptes. Ons kon vriende maak met die nuuskierige Nguni-beeste, die perde troetel en die bok-hanslammers melk gee. Heerlike, ruim kamer met alles wat mens nodig het en ’n pragtige tuin om jou in tuis te maak. Die kroegie het ons lafenis gebied in die hitte en die plaspoel was verfrissend. Marene het ons die plaas gaan wys en ons het nuwe dinge geleer oor die natuur. Ons kon ronddwaal na hartelus en het pragtige foto's geneem van die diere en die natuur.

Uitstekend.

Die personeel is baie professioneel en vriendelik. Die braaipak wat voorsien is, was uit die boonste rakke. Was baie lekker om op die plaas rond te loop en die diere te besigtig. Verblyf was ruim, netjies en het alles bevat wat benodig kon word.

Beyond expectations!

We stayed 2 nights to explore the greater area of the Gariep Dam. Our stay at Morning Glory Cottages was fabulous and we enjoyed every aspect of our stay. A special thanks to Lynnette who looked after us and gave a lot of informative background on the workings of the farm which made our time there so much more interesting! The extra attention to detail of creature comforts in our unit is first class. We spent our 3rd night in Gariep Dam itself and really longed to be back at Morning Glory Cottages. Being in the countryside, on a working farm and in great and relaxing accommodation is far more superior to the fab housing offered in the dorp. Nothing but praise and fond memories for Morning Glory Cottages!

Eenvoudig fantasties!

Wat 'n wonderlike verrassing was Morning Glory nie! Hulle dra jou op die hande. Die aandag aan elke klein detail is ongelooflik. Ons het so bederf gevoel. Met suigstokkies op elke kind se bed, wat meer kan 'n mens vra. Beslis 'n fantastiese stop as jy reis tussen Jhb en die Kaap. Dis die perfekte stop in die middel. En gaan kyk beslis na die Gariepdam. Ek sal enige tyd weer daar oornag. En vir ons perde liefhebbers kon dit nie beter nie. Baie baie dankie Morning Glory Cottages.

Oase in Karoo.

Lynette het ons vriendelik ontvang en alles gewys. Ons het lekker gaan stap op die plaas na ‘n lang tyd in die kar en het ook die wonderlike perde gesien. Die aandete was te heerlik en is voorberei deur Marene. Sy het alles pragtig verduidelik wat in die ete was. Dit is so vreedsaam en rustig op Gelykfontein. Ek kan dit ten hoogste aanbeveel om ‘n rukkie hier te bly. Vir my was dit ‘n trip down memory lane want ek het ongeveer 50 jaar gelede in Venterstad gebly terwyl my ouers op die Gariep Dam gewerk het terwyl dit gebou is. Ek was baie bly oor my keuse om hier te bly. Marene het ook baie ingelegde geodere wat sy verkoop. Dit was die eerste keer dat ek Karoo-komkommer kon eet. Baie lekker.

Excellent, friendly service and hospitality.

We were warmly received. The cottages are well equipped. The service was definitely the best of all the places we visited. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to meet all our needs. We were treated like kings and spoiled. Definitely worth more than 5 stars! We will definitely stay at Van Villa 2 again. Thank you to all their staff for all the kindness and hospitality.

Uitstekende, vriendelike diens en gasvryheid.

Ons is hartlik ontvang. Die cottages is uitstekend toegerus. Die diens was beslis die heel beste van al die plekke wat ons al besoek het. Die personeel was baie vriendelik en het uit hul pad gegaan om aan al ons behoeftes te voldoen. Ons was soos konings behandel en bederf. Beslis meer as 5 sterre werd! Ons sal beslis weer by Morning Glory Cottages oorslaap. Dankie aan al hul personeel vir al die vriendelikheid en gasvryheid.

Ruim, netjiese akkommodasie met lekker onderdakbraaiplek.

Ten spyte van droogte is die plek mooi. Aangename vriendelike gasvrouens wat ons tuis laat voel het. Lekker om na die plaasdiere te kyk wat kamp toe gebring word, selfs Nguni-bokras. Ons sal gewis weer daar oornag op pad Noorde toe en die plek sterk aanbeveel. Dankie Marene en Lynette.

Hidden gem in the Karoo.

What a wonderful stay at Morning Glory Cottages on our way back home to Johannesburg. We were treated like royalty, the most hospitable, warm and welcoming reception and first class treatment. Our stay was topped off with an entirely home-grown and home-cooked 3 course meal, absolutely magnificent. Highly recommend Morning Glory Cottages - truly a hidden gem.

Morning Glory Cottages's response

Dear Nico,

Thank you for your recent visit as we just loved having you here.

We appreciate your feedback and will be trying to look at how we can minimize spillage in the shower. For now, we give extra bath mats to soak up the spillage. I guess having a pressure pump system to assist does not help the situation.

We hope to welcome you back to the farm in the near future.

Morning Glory Cottages's response

Dear Anton,

Thank you for the feedback and rating, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We apologise about the bad cellphone signals in the rooms, but due to where we are we just fall in a dead spot and service providers have not been able to help with a solution in the area, however to assist with this we installed a little repeater tower under the Lapa and Braai area near the Reception and Bar area in the main garden. So the majority of people that visit us in the area use their mobile phones whilst sipping on a glass of wine and enjoying the garden. We hope to have you visit us again in the near future and wishing you the best for 2018.

Friendly Farm Greetings,
Marene

'n Heerlike uitspan en ontspan na heeldag op d pad!

Ons het in sarsies by Morning Glory aangekom en die ontvangs was elke keer hartlik. Ons het daar aangekom na 'n hewige donderstorm net voor 6nm en hulle was reeds weer besig om die werf in orde te kry vir hul gaste! Ons het die braai-opsie gekies en dit was 'n heerlike ervaring. Alles voorsien en gereed en dit was heerlik!

Vriendelik ontvang en ingelig deur Lynette. Akkommodasie, ruim, gerieflik en veilig. Pragtige omgewing. Die tuin, ontvangs en restaurantarea skep 'n bekoorlike "village" prentjie. Die hoogtepunt was natuurlik Marene se keurig voorbereide aandete. Elke dis was ook persoonlik deur haar, met sorg, aan ons verduidelik sommer met 'n paar wenke op die koop toe.

Baie vlieë.

Vreeslik vriendelik. Ongelukkig baie vlieë a.g.v. perde.

Morning Glory Cottages's response

Goeiedag Danie,
Baie dankie vir jul terugvoering asook gradering. Ons vra om verskoning oor die vlieë. 'n Paar dae voor jul besoek het ons reën gehad en alhoewel ons geweldig dankbaar oor die reën was in hierdie dorre wêreld, bring dit ook meer vlieë saam. Ons spuit weekliks en het ook in die kamers insek weerders asook insek gif. Ongelukkig is vlieë, miere, spinnekoppe ensovoorts deel van die plaas lewe, maar verseker dat ons kamers deeglik en daagliks gediens word.
Dit word duidelik op LekkeSlaap en TravelGround se webblad aangedui waar ons geleë is, nie net in die beskrywing nie, maar ook op 'n kaart. Ek sal aan almal wat op LekkeSlaap bespreek, voorstel om altyd op die kaart te kyk waar 'n gastehuis geleë is voor hul bespreek. Ons is 20 minute vanaf die N1 as jy die Gariep Damwal afrit neem en geleë teen die R58, wat die hoof roete tussen Gauteng, Port Elizabeth, Addo ensovoorts is.
Ons hoop om jul binnekort weer terug hier te ontvang in ons veilige omgewing waar mens nog die natuurskoon kan waardeer en ervaar.
Groete

Absolute oase.

Ons het omtrent 2009 vir die eerste keer daar oorgeslaap en hierdie jaar het ek besluit ek gaan weer. Vir seker een van ons land se topgastehuise. Ek het my verblyf geniet, die ligging van Morning Glory is perfek, personeel is vriendelik en diens is uitstekend. Ontbyt en aandete is voortreflik. Pragtige koel kamers. Baie dankie aan almal by Morning Glory, sien julle in 2018.

Local good food and hospitality, we will definitely stay over again!

We had a lovely stay and a very good meal at Morning Glory! The dinner is definitely the highlight with high quality local ingredients and good Karoo mutton. The beautiful horse farm, Gelykfontein is full of surprises if you stay over for more than one night in the Orange area. Do yourself a favor and buy a bottle of canned jam of your choice to enjoy at home. If you drive to the Cape, do yourself a favor and stay over here.

Plaaslike lekker kos en gasvryheid, ons sal definitief weer daar oorslaap!

Ons het lekker gebly en vreeslik lekker geëet by Morning Glory! Die aandetes is definitief die hoogtepunt met hoë kwaliteit plaaslike bestanddele en goeie Karoo-skaapvleis. Die pragtige perdeplaas, Gelykfontein lewer baie ander verrassings op as jy meer as een aand oorslaap in die Gariep area. Doen jouself 'n guns en koop 'n ingelegte bottel konfyt van jou keuse om by die huis te geniet. As jy Kaap toe ry, doen jouself 'n guns en slaap hier oor.

We were very pleasantly surprised with what we found at Morning Glory Cottages.

Upon arrival we were greeted friendly, checked in without any problems, everything was properly explained to us in the room and in the guesthouse. Our room was very neat and fully equipped with everything you need and very tastefully decorated. The highlight was definitely the food and our 3-course dinner was fantastic and can be compared to any good restaurant. The breakfast was also excellent, everything prepared with care. We also received a lot of personal attention. If we return to the area, we will definitely stay there again and we recommend it 100%.

Ons was baie aangenaam verras met alles wat ons by Morning Glory Cottages gekry het.

Van die oomblik wat ons daar aangekom het is ons vriendelik gegroet, ingeboek sonder enige probleme, alles is mooi aan ons verduidelik in die kamer en in die gastehuis. Ons kamer was baie netjies en volledig toegerus met alles wat mens kan nodig kry en baie smaakvol ingerig. Die hoogtepunt was beslis die kos en ons 3-gang aandete was uit die boonste rakke en kan met enige goeie restaurant vergelyk word. Ook die ontbyt was baie puik, alles met sorg voorberei. Daar was ook gedurig persoonlike aandag. As ons weer in daardie omgewing kom sal ons beslis weer daar tuisgaan en ons kan dit 100% aanbeveel.

Die rustigheid van die plaasatmosfeer was baie verwelkomend, gerieflik na 'n lang warm reis.

Die oorslaap geriewe was baie netjies en goed ingerig. Daar was aandag gegee aan fyner detail om dit mooi af te rond. Die personeel was baie vriendelik en behulp saam. Ek sal die rustigheid en gasvryheid voorwaar aanbeveel.

More Bernadette, baie dankie vir jul onlangse besoek, ek is bly jul het dit geniet.
Orals op ons beskrywings noem ons dat ons op 'n plaas geleë is en dat ons 9 km vanaf Venterstad geleë is, maar dat dit 'n 20 minute se ry is tot by die N1 / Gariep dam wal. Die Gariep dam is 90 km lank en as dit vol is vul 'n area van 430 kubieke meter. So dit is moeilik om te beskryf dat ons miskien nie reg langs die damwal geleë is nie maar wel 9 km vanaf die naaste oewer by Oviston geleë is, ons lê ook regs langs die Oviston Natuurreservaat wat saam met die Gariep natuurreservaat reg rondom die dam loop. Ons val wel onder die Gariep Distrik en vir mense op pad na die Oos Kaapse provinsie kus is ons op die hoofpad geleë.
Weereens dit was n plesier om jul hier by ons te he asook die terugvoering te ontvang en ons hoop om jul gou weer hier te ontvang.

As we were traveling all the way from the Underberg, we needed a peaceful place to stay the night. No better place than Morning Glory. We received a warm welcome. Dinner and breakfast was divine.

Absolutely fantastic! Five stars through and through!

What a wonderful place to stay over after a long day on the road. Each small thing was thought of to make the accommodation as comfortable as possible. The hospitality is from another world and the area is beautiful! We booked for supper and it was worth every cent and more. Real farm cuisine and the chicken pie was the highlight. Thank you very much, Morning Glory Cottages that you made such and effort to make our stay there one to remember for years to come.

Absoluut fantasties! Vyfster deur en deur!

Wat 'n wonderlike plek om oor te bly na 'n lang dag op die pad. Elke klein dingetjie is aan gedink om die verblyf hier gerieflik te maak. Die gasvryheid is uit 'n ander wêreld en die omgewing prentjiemooi! Ons het bespreek vir die aandete en dit was elke sent die moeite werd en meer. Regte plaaskos en die hoenderpastei was die hoogtepunt!

Heel vriendelijk en gastvrij ontvangen, goede plak, en zeer goede maaltijd.

Heel laat geboekt, en daardoor niet kunnen reserveren voor de avondmaaltijd. Toch bleken we er te kunnen eten, en die maaltijd was buitengewoon goed! De plek is een fijne plak om te vertoeven, beslist aan te raden!

100% waarde vir geld.

Die gemmerbier met ontvangs en etes het ons asems weggeslaan - onverbeterlik! Ons het egte Karoogasvryheid ervaar. Die verblyf is keurig en linne kraakvars. Ons kom definitief weer na Morning Glory toe!

Morning Glory Cottages's response

More, ons wil jul graag bedank vir jul onlangse besoek en waardeer die terugvoering, hoop om jul gou weer hier in die Karoo te sien, moenie te lank wegbly nie.
Beste wense vir die jaar wat voorlê.

Great stopover on the way back to Johannesburg.

Very pretty in the trees with an awesome little pool. We enjoyed walking around looking at the baby animals and horses. Delicious dinner! Great stay on our way back to Jhb. It would have been nice if the kids got a chance to feed the animals, but we only found out it was an option after they had been fed. Dinner was really delicious and they catered for the kids too. A really lovely stopover! Thank you!

Morning Glory Cottages's response

Morning Lauren,
It was great hosting you again, apologies about kiddies missing the feeding, sometimes the guys has so much to do on the farm that they forget to come get the kids as they have to finish feeding all the horses and other work too. We normally tell guests to keep a look out for feeding time. Glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you soon again. Thank you for the feedback and visit.
PS. the baby animals Cecelia (eland) and tiny + brandy ( nguni calfs) are doing great.
Have a blessed year.
Greetings the Morning Glory Cottages Team.

Uitsonderlike diens, kos en gasvryheid!

Soveel ekstra moeite is gedoen, soos om 'n kot in die kamer in te dra vir ons baba. Die heerlikste kos, mooiste tuin en lekker beddens! Kamer en badkamer was mooi, skoon en ruim. Morning Glory word ten sterkste aanbeveel!! Baie dankie aan die span!

My man en kind het dit regtig geniet.

Volgens hulle was die aandete uit die boonste rakke en die mense baie vriendelik. My dogtertjie het veral van die perde gehou.

Uitstekende oornagverblyf tussen Gauteng en die Oos-Kaap.

Besondere gasvryheid het ons hier ervaar. 'n Pragtige kamer met alles wat mens benodig vir oorslaap in die pragtige Karoo. Lynette se verwelkoming was hartlik en sjef Marené se kos uit die boonste rakke. Sal beslis weer hier wil oorbly.

Morning Glory Cottages's response

Middag,
Dit was fantasties om jul te ontmoet, en baie dankie vir die wonderlike terugvoering, ons hoop om jul gou weer hier by ons te ontvang.
Geseende wense vanaf ons hele span hier op die plaas vir die fees seisoen wat voorlê.
