Lekker, maar nie wonderlik nie!

Redes waarom ek dit nie sou aanbeveel nie: Daar is heelwat trappe na die kamers en ons was nie bewus daarvan nie. Belangrik om dit op webtuiste aan te dui, veral as mens baie en swaar bagasie het. Eienaar het met aankoms wel gehelp. Alhoewel kamers ruim, netjies, goed toegerus en smaakvol is, is daar geen privaatheid nie, aangesien al die kamers uitloop op gang na swembad, kroeg en dak. Met slegs skuifdeure was dit onprakties om in die hitte vars lug te geniet sonder om privaatheid prys te gee.

Real value for money.

Good place to stay. Breakfast was good especially the farm omelette. Just wish there was a common fridge and a microwave.

The service and stay was pleasant.

The location and area is ideal for tourists. The only negative would be that the bathroom doesn't have a door and the howling wind due to the location can be quite disturbing, but it is part of nature and out of the owners' control. Very friendly hosts who welcomed us warmly.

Die diens en verblyf was aangenaam.

Die ligging en omgewing is ideaal vir toeriste. Die enigste negatief is die badkamer sonder 'n deur en die huilende wind a.g.v die ligging wat nogal steurend was, maar dit is deel van die natuur en buite eienaars se beheer. Baie vriendelike gasheer en gasvrou en ontvangs was verwelkomend.

Peaceful place with a beautiful view of the town and the valley.

I would think for the price there should be a fridge and an air con in the room. The free WiFi did not work. The place has a very nice view of the town and the valley.

Rustige plek met 'n mooi uitsig van die dorp en valley.

Ek sal dink vir die prys moet daar 'n yskas en lugreeling wees in die kamer. Die "free WiFi" het nie gewerk nie. Die plek het 'n baie mooi uitsig oor die dorp en valley.

Very disappointed.

Mountain View advertises as a lodge with lodge rates. It is, however, nothing but a backpackers with an en suite bathroom and a big bed. There is no basic amenities such as a bar fridge, bottled water or TV. The WiFi's signal was very weak - mostly no signal - for which they blame the fact that they are in Africa. The host and hostess were very friendly and welcoming and there is a lovely heated pool and deck with great views, but rooms and cast iron animals in the garden, doesn't make it a lodge. If they halve their rates, it might justify the value of the type of accommodation. I blame myself for the error of judgement, since I have not read their reviews and made my decision based on the name and the pictures I saw.

Baie teleurgesteld.

Mountain View adverteer as 'n lodge met lodge tariewe. Dit is egter niks anders as 'n backpackers met 'n en-suite badkamer en oorgrote bed nie. Daar is geen basiese geriewe soos 'n kroegyskas, gebottelde water of TV nie. Die WiFi het bitter swak sein - meestal geen - waarvoor hulle die feit dat hulle in Afrika is blameer. Die gasheer en gasvrou is egter baie vriendelik en verwelkomend en daar is 'n lieflike verhitte swembad en dek met 'n pragtige uitsig, maar aangeboude kamers en gegote yster diere in die tuin maak nie van die plek 'n "lodge" nie. As hulle hul tariewe halveer, kan dit dalk die waarde van die tipe akkommodasie regverdig. Ek blameer myself egter vir die oordeelsfout aangesien ek nie hulle resensies gelees het nie en my besluit geskoei het op die naam en die foto's wat ek gesien het.

Mountain View Lodge Montagu's response

We do not advertise TV's in the room, nor do we advertise a refrigerator or air-conditioning in the room. What we advertise and what the pictures show on the webpage is what we offer : A spacious room with en-suite bathroom, coffee- and tea-making facilities in the room, an onsite bar with local wines and Belgian beer, an onsite restaurant (open on reservation for guests only), a heated swimming pool, a roof terrace that overlooks the entire town, a peaceful, quiet and save environment.

It is impossible to please everyone, but it is possible to provide the correct information:
Backpackers: property that provides a bed, mostly in a dorm, with communal bathroom and toilet,
B&B: Property that provides guests rooms with breakfast,
Lodge: Same as a B&B but also provides more than just breakfast, i.e. dinners, bar, etc,
Hotel: same as lodge but with a 24 hour open reception.

Fantastic view, quiet with a lovely swimming pool and chill area. Very pleasant hostess, Maud.

I will recommend Mountain View Lodge anytime. The view over the valley and the mountains from the swimming pool is unbeatable. There is a lookout deck for when you just want to relax. There is also a nice chill area and you don't have to sit in your room the whole time. Breakfast is delicious. Rooms are comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Don't just stay there for a single night. It is possible to relax for a good couple days at MV Lodge.

Fantastiese uitsig, stil met 'n heerlike swembad en kuier-area. Baie aangename gasvrou, Maud.

Mountain View Lodge sal ek enige tyd aanbeveel. Die uitsig oor die vallei en die berge vanaf die swembad is onverbeterlik. Daar is 'n uitkykdek vir ontspanning. Daar is ook 'n lekker kuierarea en daar hoef nie die hele tyd in die kamer gesit word nie. Die ontbyt word heerlik voorberei. Kamers is gerieflik met alles wat benodig word. Moenie net een nag oorbly nie. Dis moontlik om 'n paar dae net by MV Lodge te ontspan.

Elegant, modern, quiet, safe.

There is a wonderful view from the top terrace over the city and the mountains. Both landlord and lady are very helpful and friendly. There are many small areas where you can relax, eg in the bar - If you like to drink beer then get there.

Ons het meer verwag.

Ons het lekker gebly, dit was nie 'n vinnige stop nie. Ek skryf die resensie nadat ons al by 2 ander plekke was. Foto's kan bedrieglik wees. Die kamer self was eenvoudig. Ag ek het seker net meer verwag. Die eienaars is baie gaaf. Ons het toe gaan rondry en 'n restaurant met die naam van Kokkemans gekry. Dit het ons aand gemaak!

Mountain View Lodge Montagu's response

We are sorry to hear you that you did not enjoy your stay. We do however urge you to compare rates if you compare us to other accommodations. We offer our guests what they pay for - a good comfortable bed in a clean room, a clean bathroom with a big hot shower and a buffet and warm breakfast. Our pictures were taken with a cell phone, how can it be more honest?

Baie lekker gasvryheid, wonderlike uitsig en lekker gekuier.

Gasvryheid van eienaars was uitstekend en ons het lekker saam met hulle en ander gaste gekuier oor 'n hele paar Belgiese biere.

Pragtige uitsig, vriendelike eienaars, goeie ligging en Belgiese bier.

Vriendelike en hulpvaardige gasheer en gasvrou. Skoon akkommodasie en dakstoep met fantastiese 360°-uitsig oor die hele Montagu-vallei. Uitstekende en groot verskeidenheid Belgiese biere beskikbaar, wat baie verfrissend was tydens die hittegolf. Addisionele ventilasie deur die kamers (buiten die skuifdeur voor op die loopvlak) sou baie gehelp het tydens die verskriklike warm Montagu dae en nagte. Dit is stapafstand van die dorpsentrum, maar die terugstap is opdraand. Die swembad langs die dakstoep was baie welkom tydens die hittegolf. Vir privaatheid sou dit goed wees indien die gordyne by die skuifdeur "block-outs" kon wees.

Ons het lekker gebly.

Dit was vir ons baie snaaks dat daar nie 'n badkamerdeur was nie. My seun het teruggekom van 'n staptoer en ons het die volgende dag verder gery na Hartenbos. Hy het maar in sy slaapsak saam met my op die koninggrootte-bed geslaap... ma en seun wou darem nie heeltemal saam in dieselfde bed slaap nie.
