Skoon, netjies en rustig

Raptor ridge is ver genoeg van die N1 af om nie die verkeer te hoor nie en naby genoeg om maklik daar uit te kom. Die eiendom is op die grens van die natuur reservaat so ons het diere gesien met die verkyker. Bets is baie vriendelik en behulpvaardig, sy het ons oorbly baie lekker gemaak.

This is a gem of a place, off the beaten track, peaceful and comfortable. Bets is an attentive and friendly host who made us feel completely at home. The stargazing and animal spotting were amazing. Just loved our short stay here.

Baie vriendelik ontvang deur die gasvrou. Baie mooi plekkie, ten spyte van die urine-reuk as gevolg van die mat in die badkamer.

Die gasvrou was baie vriendelik, en ons is hartlik verwelkom. Die badkamer het 'n mat in wat baie sterk na urine ruik. Die badkamer is regoor die slaapkamer, en mens ruik dus heeltyd die urine. Die toilet het ook gelek wat die mat natmaak wat die reuk verder vererger. Ten spyte van dit was ons verblyf lekker.

'n Pragtige plek, kamer met 'n pragtige uitsig op die dam. Rustig en verwelkomend. 'n Fantastiese plek om te rus en asem te skep!

Ons het Raptor Ridge gekies as 'n oornagstop op ons reis van Kaapstad na Jhb en terug. Ons het regtig welkom gevoel. Daar is 'n gemeenskaplike kombuis- en eetarea wat ons volgende keer gebruik. Dit is 'n pragtige plek.

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

A beautiful place, room with a scenic view of the dam. Tranquil and welcoming. A great place to rest and catch your breath!

We chose Raptor Ridge as a midway stayover on our trip from Cape Town to Jhb and back. We felt really welcome. There are communal kitchen and dining facilities, which we will make use of next time we stay. It's a beautiful place.

Hostess Bets kindly received us.

If you are looking for peace, this is the place for you. It is urgently needed for an upgrade. Bets does her best with what she has, but the owner needs to put money back into the establishment. The solar energy is totally inadequate. Location is great for overnight when travelling.

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

Gasvrou Bets het ons vriendelik ontvang.

As jy soek na stilte is hierdie die plek vir jou. Dit is dringend nodig vir 'n opgradering. Bets doen haar bes met wat sy het, maar die eienaar het nodig om geld terug te ploeg. Die sonkrag is totaal onvoldoende. Ligging is ideaal vir oornag as jy op reis is.

Met aankoms was ons baie vriendelik ontvang. Kamers was skoon en netjies.

Vir 'n oornagplekkie is Raptor beslis 'n goeie besluit. Kamers is skoon en beddens gemaklik. Ek het met 2 hondjies gery en kon hulle saam met my daar in boek. Hulle het die spasie geniet. Die gasvrou was baie aangenaam en het uit haar pad gegaan om seker te maak ons is gemaklik.

Dit was stil, rustig en kon jy die ware karakter van die Karoo ervaar.

Met ons aankoms was ons baie vriendelik ontvang en is dadelik na ons kamers geneem. Die kamers was baie netjies, maar die badkamers is oud en het nog matte in. Die dek se hout voor die kamer is al verrot en het beide my vrou en my seun van die dek moes afspring aangesien die dek onder hulle meegegee het. Toe ons die aand wou braai moes ons 'n braaier by 'n ander kamer gaan leen aangesien nie elke kamer voorsien was van 'n braaier nie. Geen WiFi, TV, lugreëling en geen drinkgoed te koop in die kroeg nie. Die lodge het nie eers oor ys beskik nie en moes ons ys in Gariep gaan koop het. Ek moes ekstra inbetaal vanweë vakansietarief, maar kon werklik nie die waarde vir die hoë tarief sien nie.

Baie bly om weer daar te oornag.

Dit is 'n klein bietjie van 'n ongerief om vir 'n fles warm water te vra vir koffie. Ons verstaan dat krag net van solar beskikbaar is, maar sal dit nie moontlik wees om 'n klein elektriese ketel of meer sonpanele te kry nie? Bestuurderes Bets was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Dankie, het reeds die plek vir vriende en familie aanbeveel. So gerieflik naby die N1 en halfpad tussen Pietermaritzburg en Kaapstad.

Gerieflike oornagverblyf.

Skoon, netjiese kamer en badkamer. Vriendelike, gasvrye ontvangs. Gedeelde kombuisgeriewe. Elektriese krag word verskaf deur sonenergie, en dus kan geen ketels gekook, of haardroërs gebruik word nie. 'n Kragopwekker is hiervoor beskikbaar, en verder word gas gebruik om die stoof, yskaste en geysers van krag te voorsien.

Very nice area, slightly dilapidated, has the potential to be very good, but will need to work on customer service and site and room maintenance.

Raptor Ridge is located in a beautiful area, conveniently located close to the highway. The service was by no means satisfactory or welcoming. Also, no information was communicated to us regarding the use of facilities or surrounding activities / attractions. Although the bed was very comfortable and we slept wonderfully we were constantly disturbed by mice nesting in the roof. We would also suggest that the carpets should be replaced with tiles. Carpets are dirty and require more effort, time and costs to clean and maintain.

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

Baie mooi area, gebou is bietjie vervalle, het potensiaal om baie goed te wees, maar sal moet werk aan kliëntediens en instandhouding van terrein en kamers.

Raptor Ridge is geleë in 'n pragtige omgewing, is gerieflik omdat dit naby aan die snelweg is. Die diens was geensins bevredigend of verwelkomend nie. Daar was ook geen inligting aan ons gekommunikeer in verband met die gebruik van fasiliteite of omliggende aktiwiteite/besienswaardighede nie. Alhoewel die bed baie gemaklik was en ons heerlik geslaap het was ons gedurig gesteur deur muise wat nes gemaak het in die dak. Ons sal ook voorstel dat die matte vervang moet word met teëls. Matte is vuil en verg meer moeite, tyd en kostes om skoon te maak en te hou.

Hi Ilse
Baie jammer om te hoor van jul ervaring hier by ons.
Alhoewel ek telkemal draaie gemaak het by die kamer was die deur en gordyne toe gewees. Was onder die indruk julle wou privaat gewees het.
In die natuur is daar vlermuise. Ons het wel 'n vlermuis boks vir hulle op gerig.
Aan die matte sal daar aandag gegee word

Lovely getaway!

We are from Johannesburg and had a wedding in Port Elizabeth. So Raptor Ridge Lodge was our stopover. We were warmly welcomed by Bets and enjoyed a delicious dinner prepared by her. Our sleeping area was so nice and cozy and the view was fantastic! It is so lovely, peaceful and quiet. Our group of friends will definitely go back and make a weekend of it!

Ons is van Johannesburg en het 'n troue gehad in Port Elizabeth. So Raptor Ridge Lodge was ons oorslaapplekkie. Ons was hartlik verwelkom deur Bets en het heerlike aandete genuttig wat deur haar voorberei is. Ons slaapplek was so lekker en snoesig en die uitsig was fantasties! Dit is so heerlik, rustig en stil. Ons groep vriende sal beslis teruggaan en sommer 'n naweek daarvan maak!

So close to nature, open, quiet, peaceful. View of the gariep, sunrise and sunset. Stargazing excellent.

The hostess received us warmly and kindly - fully informing us how the facilities [solar power] function. Rooms very neat and clean and comfortable. Absolutely no mosquitoes, still wanted to ask how this is possible. Have also fully informed us of attractions in the area. Really, highly recommended.

Gasvrou het ons hartlik en vriendelik ontvang - lig ons volledig in hoe die fasiliteite [sonkrag] fingsioneer. Kamers baie netjies en skoon en gerieflik. Geen maar geen muskiete, wou nog vra hoe dit moontlik is. Het ons ook volledig ingelig i.v.m. besienswaardighede in die omgewing. Regtig hoog aanbeveel.

If you like silence it is the best place to refresh your soul.

This is the place if you just need a getaway where you can rest in silence. The views over the Gariep Dam and the wildlife along the dam create a very peaceful atmosphere and other attractions are just a few minutes' drive away.

As jy van stilte hou is dit die plek om jou siel te verkwik.

Dit is die plek as jy net net 'n wegbreek nodig het waar jy jouself in stilte kan laat rus. Die uitsig oor die Gariepdam en die wild langs die dam skep 'n baie rustige atmosfeer en ander attraksies is net 'n paar minute se ry daarvandaan.

Was baie tevrede met die diens en toestand van die blyplek en ander geriewe.

Ideal location at the end of a day's drive from Gauteng.

Room was comfortably furnished. To be self-catering, you need to be prepared to share a common kitchen and dining area. We were very happy with the breakfast which we had ordered in advance.

Peaceful self-catering out of Gariep's main hustle and bustle.

Basic but comfortable room with a private deck overlooking the dam. Shared kitchen and main deck. Option to wheel a small braai to your private deck. Good value for the price if you don't mind sharing some facilities.

Die verblyf was fantasties. Bets is ‘n uitstekende gasvrou, baie behulpsaam en akkomoderend. Enigste klein irritasie was die stort se temperatuur regulering kort bietjie aandag. Sal definitief aanbeveel as oorstaan of verblyf om Gariepdam omgewing te verken.

No TV, no radio. Using a gas stove that is outside one's room. Imagine that at night.

Life without a TV, it's something else. We didn't sleep at the lodge.

Dear Tshidi,
The gas stove is in our communal kitchen, not outside one's room.
The TV can't replace the beauty and quietness of the nature.

Great location and loads of character. A great place to get away for a few days close to the awesome Gariep Dam.

This is our 4th visit to Raptor Ridge. It is a great halfway stop-over between Johannesburg and Cape Town. We usually stay one night but really should stay longer to enjoy the location. Some aspects of the rooms need attention, small things that did not diminish the pleasure of the stay. We saw plenty of wildlife from the porch of the room and had a visit from two local crows who we gladly shared our breakfast with. Our host was very friendly and accommodating. The property is an eco friendly property and runs off solar and gas. The electrical supply has limitations so be aware of these. Ask for a room that does not have the gas heater in it, the heaters can be noisy and come on if your neighbour runs hot water, if you have the heater unit in your room. If you are not in a rush, take the Smithfield/Bethulie Road it is a nice quiet country road that lets you experience the real old school South Africa.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang. Die kamer waarin ons geslaap het is netjies en skoon met 'n uitsig oor die dam. Die koninggrootte-bed slaap soos 'n droom. Die badkamer is ruim en het 'n gemaklike stort. Die bestuurder het moeite gedoen om uit te vind of ons gerieflik was deur die aand navraag te doen of alles in orde was. Daar is veilige parkering. Ons kan Raptor Ridge Lodge aanbeveel.

Nice and quiet.

I think a small gas stove to boil water in the room for coffee would be good. Also it is very complicated to get the shower to keep a warm consistency, so its either boiling or cold. Other guests who checked in who had stayed before had the same problem with the shower. We were offered freezer space to keep our stuff frozen as we were on a long trip but the one fridge was not working and the other one kept our meat cold but not frozen. Think there is a need for new fridges. The outside deck is not quite safe anymore with nails loose and planks. These are but some small things which are easy to fix and I look forward to another visit.

A bit too far from the Gariep village.

The host was charming and the unit clean. The lack of mains power and the distance from a place to get an evening meal was a problem. Closest shop being 13 km away so for an overnight stay it was problematic. It is also very isolated so one tends to feel vulnerable. Not really suitable for an en route stopover. Colesberg most practical.

Nie so goed soos voorheen nie.

Ons slaap gereeld by Raptor Ridge Lodge oor, maar hierdie keer was die diens nie so goed nie. Ek vermoed dit is oor ons die enigste mense daar was vir die aand. Eerstens is ons nie in die kamer gesit wat ek bespreek het nie. Ons bespreek altyd die King Room, want dis aan die einde van die gebou en meer privaat. Ek het egter nie hieroor iets gesê nie, want al die kamers is basies dieselfde, so dit sou nie 'n verskil gemaak het nie. En daar was nie ander mense gewees nie. Tweedens was daar nie seep of handdoeke in die kamer nie. Dit was asof die kamer glad nie gereed gemaak is vir gaste nie. Ek het dit darem gevra en dit is voorsien. Derdens is die krag al vroegaand afgesit en nie weer aangesit voor ons gery het nie. Ons weet daar is 'n generator, maar nog nie voorheen is die krag die heel nag afgesit nie. Seker maar weer oor ons die enigste gaste was. Dit was wel steurend as ons deur die nag die badkamer wou gebruik en die volgende oggend toe ons moes oppak. Daar was niks voorsien om hiermee te help nie, gelukkig het ons 'n handflitslig in een van die sakke gehad. Ons kon ook nie ons selfone gebruik nie, want sonder krag het dit ook nie gelaai nie. Ons sal elke keer teruggaan na Raptor Ridge Lodge, maar al is mens die enigste gaste dink ek mens verdien tog dieselfde diens as die kamers vol ook is. So, dalk net 'n voorstel om die diens bietjie op te skerp.

Raptor Ridge Lodge's response

Ons waardeer die terugvoer. Ons sal dit opvolg met bestuur en is dit glad nie die bedoeling om minder moeite te doen as daar net een of twee gaste is nie! Ons bied ons verskoning aan en vertrou dat die ontvangs en verblyf bevredigend sal wees die volgende keer as julle ons weer besoek.

Beste Groete,
Admin

Aandete en ontbyt uitsonderlik! Goeie gasheer.

Heerlik geslaap, kamer se fasiliteiete is voldoende. Voorstel om verbetering is om die tapyt in badkamer met teëls te vervang. Gasheer was hartlik en vriendelik. Kos was van hoogstaande gehalte, porsiegroottes vir dames net bietjie te groot!

Baie rustig met die uitsig oor die dam.

Ons het Saterdagaand oornag en is vriendelik ontvang deur Dawid. Ons kamers is vir ons gewys en ons het ingeklok. Lekker gebraai, geëet en gekuier. Sondag na ontbyt het ons gepak en gery. Die diens en gesels was lekker, sal nie langer as een aand daar kan bly nie a.g.v. geen ander geriewe, bv. televiesie of radio en kragopwekker word afgesit. Moet net sê het baie lekker geslaap in donker en net die naggeluide.

Skoon, netjies en gemaklik.

Die fasiliteit is goed geleë en bied goeie waarde vir geld. Die bestuurder het ons goed ontvang en goed gekommunikeer. Die kamer was skoon en netjies maar die houtdek buitekant het aandag nodig. Die lodge was gerieflik en skoon. Die kombuis kort 'n goeie opgradering.

Gebrekkige voorsiening van basiese behoeftes.

Ongelukkig was dit nie wat ons verwag het nie. Die eienaar se aanbeveling waar ons kon gaan eet die aand was die enigste positiewe ervaring vir hierdie verblyf. Selfs die bevestiging van die bespreking was aanvanklik verwarrend. Jammer, maar ons sal nie weer daar bespreek nie.

Rustig in die natuur. Sterrelig nog die helderste ooit.

Die suites kort bietjie aandag, andersins 'n rustige nagrus, geen steurings behalwe vir die natuurlike inwonertjies.

With better management this place has potential.

No electricity, only generator, switched off at 20:30, no kettle in the room, management brings boiling water in a flask, dirty carpets. I've had much better stays for the same price at other places. You won't see me again.

Plek het potensiaal met beter bestuur.

Geen krag, slegs kragopwekker, word afgesit om 20:30, geen ketel in kamer, bestuur bring kookwater met fles, matte vuil, vir dieselfde prys het ek al baie beter geslaap op ander plekke. Sal my nooit weer sien nie.

Mooi plek en rustig.

Mooi plek. Grootste klagte is dat daar nie elektrisiteit is nie en dat ons dus in die donker met 'n flits moes aanpak. Geen eet of drink geriewe net warm water vir koffie. Plek kan ook skoner wees. Ontvangs was vriendelik.

Rus en vrede onder die Karoo sterreprag.

In die ongerepte Karoo natuurskoon kon ons veilig voel, heerlik slaap in netjiese geriewe en selfs 'n Karoo-lamtjoppie op die kole braai terwyl ons ons verkyk aan die helder sterreprag bokant ons.

Baie lekker van die alledagse gejaag. Rustig op die plaas.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang. Op ons gemak laat voel, al die opsies aan ons verduidelik. Die een opsie was om op die dorpie by die hotel karoo lamstjop te gaan eet, ons is nie einlik skaap eters nie, maar daai plek s'n was uit die boeke. Baie lekker geslaap, die warm water vir koffie was ook op tyd, daar was 'n opsie vir ontbyt, maar moes te vroeg ry. Beveel die plek opreg aan. Nie vir mense met te veel draadwerk nie, is plaas, werk op sonkrag, maar daar is 'n generator as krag benodig word.

Kamer was vol spinnerakke en vlermuismis.

Die omgewing is pragtig. Die huisies kort 'n dringende opknap. Die mat het 'n vuil kol opgehad, daar was vlermuismis op die een bed, hulle het eers handdoeke vanaf 'n ander lodge gaan haal vir ons kamer. In die aand het die vlermuise rondgevlieg in ons kamer. Toe ons arriveer moes ons die hek oopstoot alhoewel daar iemand in die tuin doenig was. Die bestuurder was baie vriendelik sowel as die personeel.

Dit kan werk as die plek met pesbeheer behandel word.

Ek is jammer om julle mee te deel dat insekte en ander ongewenste diere ons verblyf onaangenaam gemaak het. Met gereelde beheer kan dit 'n goeie plek vir gaste te wees om te oornag.

Mooi ligging, basiese geriewe kort egter aandag!

Baie mooi ligging. Ietwat vervalle en groen krag het nie gewerk nie. Te warm vir somersaande sonder lugreëling. Warm water met gas werk nie goed nie. Yskaste nie gewerk nie. Braaiers nie skoon nie. Diere-vriendelik maar honde kan nie vrylik loop weens 2 bokke in die klein kampie.
