Skoon en rustig en veilig en gerieflik.

Gerieflike halfpad stop PE toe. Al tweede keer wat ek daar oorbly. Skoon en netjies met veilige parkering. Als wat mens nodig het. Ek sal dit aanbeveel.

Quiet and pleasant.

Good location in terms of town facilities and safety. Heavy traffic throughout the night bothered a bit.

Stil en aangenaam.

Goed geleë t.o.v. dorpsgeriewe en veilig. Swaar verkeer deur nag bietjie steurend.

Basies, maar netjies en silwerskoon.

Ons het 'n troue in Cradock bygewoon en Schooling's was perfek vir 'n 2 nagte oorslaap. Dit was alles wat ons verwag het in 'n Victoriaanse-era gebou. Basiese geriewe, maar ons het niks kortgekom nie. Die kombuisie en badkamer het alle geriewe in en alles was silwerskoon en netjies met ons aankoms. Dankie Engela vir die vriendelike diens!

Super lekker gebly in die pragtige huisie.

Ons het heerlik gebly in hierdie pragtige huisie. Die huis is volledig toegerus met linne, eetgerei en baie mooi skoon. Die parkering is veilig en maklik toeganklik. Daar was bietjie min eetgerei vir die hele groep in die huis en waaiers sal welkom wees in die hitte van Desember maand maar dit kon nie ons heerlike gesinskuier in die huisie demp nie. Ons familie was mal oor die outydse tema van die huis, die groot gemaklike kamers, die volledige badkamers en dekor wat so nostalgies is.

Disappointing and misleading.

We specifically asked for secure parking for a caravan and were ensured that there is secure parking. But no caravan can enter that parking. Consequently we had to wait til midnight to get parking in the street in front of the guesthouse for our car and caravan as the guesthouse is located all over the hotel premises and our caravan got some damage. It seems that it's a residential house that is vacated during school holiday, as there is food in the freezer, a kettle without lid, 'n computer and crates filled with paper on the dining table.

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

Teleurstellend en misleidend.

Ons het uitdruklik gevra vir veilige parkering vir 'n karavaan en is verseker dat daar veilige parkering is. Maar geen karavaan kan by daardie parkering in nie. Gevolglik moes ons tot middernag wag om parkering in die straat voor die gastehuis te kry vir ons voertuig en karavaan omdat die gastehuis regoor die hotel geleë is én ons het skade op ons karavaan. Dit kom voor asof dit 'n woonhuis is wat vir die skoolvakansie ontruim is met kos in die vrieskas, 'n ketel sonder 'n deksel en rekenaar en kratte papiere wat op die eetkamertafel staan.

Goeie oornag verblyf.

Sal kliënte dalk vroegtydig inlig dat daar nie regtig parkeerplek is vir reisigers met kamp waentjies of karavane.

Hi Willy, hier is veilige parkeering vir waentjies en karavane. Dit mag net nie die hoogte van 'n karavaan oorskry nie. Baie dankie.

Don't stay for more than one day.

You only get clean towels on arrival. You are expected to use the same towels for the duration of your stay or wash it yourselves on a daily basis. If you do decide to use the washing machine then you will have to pay R60 a load.

Schooling's Guesthouse's response

Good day. We do wash towels every second day . For private clothes you need to pay R60.00 a load. Every guest house that I know of do have a laundry service and you pay extra for it.

In disrepair.

Prior to arrival at ± 12:00, we started receiving enquiry calls on arrival time. Manager wanted to go out. On arrival we got a superficial view of the premisis with the comment: pick whichever room you required. The premisis actually had a pungent smell - musty and damp which you were aware of throughout the house. The location was clean.
