Vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Alles wat jy van 'n gastehuis verwag na 'n lang reis.

Ekstra moeite gedoen om ons tuis te laat voel en selfs vir ouma 'n bord gekookte kos vir aandete gereël. Ook een van die min plekke in Douglas en omgewing wat honde toelaat, so dit is 'n groot plus vir al ons mense wat met hulle hondekinders ook reis.

Friendly and helpful. Everything you expect from a guest house after a long trip.

Made extra effort to make us feel at home and even arranged for grandma a plate of cooked food for dinner. Also one of the few places in Douglas and surrounding area that allows dogs, so this is a big plus for all of us people who travel with their canine children as well.

Uitstekend. Let asb. op adres wat vir gaste gegee word. Ons het in vreemde woongebied beland.

Ons het tuisgegaan in kamers 2, 3 en 4. Daar is 'n pragtige Binnenhof met klein swembadjie wat ons terdeë benut het. Kamers skoon, netjies en diens vriendelik en verwelkomend. Die ontbyt was heerlik met flink bediening.

Gemengde gevoelens.

Ek hou nie daarvan om te kla nie, en glo die kritiek sal opbouend wees. Die parkering is 'n reuseprobleem, maar ek verstaan dat as alle kamers vol is dat dat die parkering dan eers 'n probleem sal wees. Daar was ook n probleem met die waterdruk in die nag, ek het dit wel nie gerapporteer nie en glo daar is 'n verklaarbare rede daarvoor. Die ontvangs was vreemd, die persoon het haar nie voorgestel nie en die vraag wanneer ek gaan betaal was onverwags aangesien ek reeds ten volle betaal het. Die bed was lekker en die stort was ook lekker as daar waterdruk is. Ons was bly dat daar koffie en beskuit in die kamer was.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Mixed feelings.

I don't like to complain, and believe the criticism will be constructive. The parking is a huge problem, but I understand that if all the rooms are full then only then will the parking be a problem. There was also a problem with the water pressure at night, I did not report it and believe there is an explainable reason for it. The reception was strange, the person did not introduce herself and the question when I was going to pay was unexpected as I had already paid in full. The bed was nice and the shower was also nice if there is water pressure. We were glad that there was coffee and biscuits in the room.

HI Riana

Ek is so jammer oor die parkering. Ons is besig met die munisipaliteit oor ekstra parkering op die sypaadjie , maar dit gaan maar moeilik. Ontbyt word elke dag bedien, daar moet net vooraf gereel word daarvoor. n Vol Engelse ontbyt word bedien vanaf 7 uur elke oggend. Baie dankie vir jou terugvoering en ek hoop om jou weer te sien.

Dit was 'n goeie oornagplek.

Goed as 'n mens net wil oornag. Veilige parkeerplek vir voertuig. Die enigste nadeel is die bure se hond wat deur die nag aan die blaf raak as ons kamerdeur oopgaan, as ons die lig aanskakel of as jy net durf praat. Daar is 'n muur tussen die twee erwe, maar dit keer nie die hond se geblaf nie. Dis baie frustrerend.

It was a good stopover.

Good if you just want to spend the night. Secure parking for vehicle. The only downside is the neighbors' dog that barks throughout the night when our bedroom door opens, when we turn on the light or if you just dare to speak. There is a wall between the two plots, but this does not stop the dog's barking. It's very frustrating.
