Ongemaklik

Die eddens moet vervang word. ’n Duvet op ons bed sou lekker wees. Die lig van die afdak wat heelaand in die kamer inskyn was onaangenaam. Was glad nie lekker verblyf nie.

Baie dankie vir die veilige skoon plek reg langs die hoofroete na Pretoria. Baie mooi en ens het lekker geslaap en 'n oggend koffie geniet voordat ons die lang pad uitgerus aangedurf het. Sal beslis weer daar aandoen.

Not quite up to standard, the pool is out of order, but is advertised.

There was no toilet paper and the roof was leaking. We also expected to be able to swim but everything seems to be under construction.

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

Nie heeltemal op standard, die swembad is buitewerking, maar word geadverteer.

Daar was geen toilet papier nie en die dak lek. Ook het ons verwag om te kon swem maar als blyk onder konstruksie te wees.

More Julia,
As jou toilet papier klaargeraak het kon jy net vir nog vra, defnitief was daar in toe jul gekom het. Ons het 'n baie groot haelstorm gehad en vele skade wat onmiddelik onder konstruksie geplaas is vir herstel. Die swembad is ongelukkig op jou besoek aan gewerk maar is nou weer 100% reg. Ek is baie jammer vir die ongerief van die swembad.

Hi Daphne
Ek is baie jammer om te hoor dat jy dink die beddegoed is nie gedoen voor dat julle in is nie, elke eenheid het drie stelle beddegoed dus is dit vir ons baie maklik om te ruil nadat iemand uit is.

Friendly reception, neat.

Accommodation was neat and spacious, but the kitchen facilities were really inadequate. The guesthouse is out of town and after a long day on the road one does not necessarily want to drive back to town to eat. There were only two coffee mugs, so you can't eat soup that night and drink coffee the next morning, because there are no washing facilities either. A kitchen sink will make a big difference.

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

Vriendelike ontvangs, netjies.

Verblyf was netjies en ruim, maar die kombuisgeriewe was regtig onvoldoende. Die gastehuis is buite die dorp en na 'n lang dag op die pad is mens nie noodwendig lus om terug dorp toe te ry om te gaan eet nie. Daar was net twee koffiebekers, dus kan mens nie sop eet die aand en die volgende oggend koffie drink nie, want daar is ook nie wasgeriewe nie. 'n Kombuisopwasbak sal 'n groot verskil maak.

Clean, comfortable and good value, but not equipped well enough.

There should be two towels, not one, when there are two occupants. The kettle did not fit under the tap of the small bathroom basin and there was no jug to fill it. Apart from this we were happy with what we were given for the price paid. We would use Silvex again if in the area.

It was fine for the amount of money we paid.

It was the only place that was relatively cheap for a one night stay, we arrived and there was not really anyone there to receive us or even anyone who works there the only lady that helped us was a lady that does not even work for them she just also lives on the premises and when we went home there was no one really to check us out we just dropped the key in the box by the gate. Would rather check out some of the other many accommodation places in Piet Retief.

Bad smell at the accommodation.

The only problem is that the rooms are under oak trees and the acorns that are constantly falling on the roof are extremely disturbing. In another season it may be better.

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

Slegte reuk by die verblyf.

Die enigste probleem is dat die kamers onder akkerbome staan en die akkers wat gedurig op die dak val is uiters steurend. In 'n ander seisoen kan dit dalk beter wees.

Vuil.

Ek het die gevoel gekry dat 'n permanente inwoner gou moes uittrek om ons te akkommodeer. Beddens se oortreksels was vol kolle, toilet nie skoon, mikrogolf vuil, ketel vuil. Ou slaai en melk in die yskas. 'n Groot klip in die stort om blykbaar jou voete te skrop. Dit is regtig grillerig. Ek neem aan dit is dan die waarde wat mens kry vir die lae prys. Ek kan wel sê dat die personnel baie vriendelik was.

Perfek vir 'n oornag tussen die Noordkus en hoëveld!

Silvex was ons oornag-slaapplek op die terugreis vanaf die Noordkus na Johannesburg. Die ontvangs was baie vriendelik en alles is goed verduidelik. Die eenheid is goed toegerus met basiese eetgerei - die enigste probleem was om die breekgoed weer te was, aangesien die enigste wasbak in die eenheid die klein badkamerwasbak is. Jammer dat ons die vuil skottelgoed vir julle gelos het!

Silvex's response

Ansa,
Baie dankie vir jou positiewe terugvoer, ons beplan 'n aanbou met opwas by die braai. Dit is egter nie nodig om skottelgoed te was nie, dis ons diens aan jou. Dit is wonderlik om met gaste soos julle besigheid te doen. Ons sien julle graag weer.
Groete,

Ek kan Silvex aanbeveel vir die prys wat mens betaal. Ek het na die vorige resensies gekyk en gesien sommige kla oor die nie skoon van beddegoed. Die beddegoed was nou mooi skoon. `n Stukkie seep in die badkamer was daar nie. Die mense is vriendelik en mense voel veilig daar. Ek het die half liter yskoue melk in die yskas geniet. Baie dankie.

Baie ongemaklik gewees.

My man het gebel toe sê persoon net hello hello en sit neer. Bel ander nommer toe sê vrou sy sal dat hulle nou oopmaak, sy is nie tuis. Voor ons in kamer gaan hardloop hulle om verwarmer aan te sit en twee klein handdoeke op te hang. Dit is bekostigbaar ja, maar geen verskoning as die plek vuil is. Kan nie op bank sit dit is so vuil. As kussings weggevat word is daar 'n groot swart kol soos iemand vuil daar gelê het teen leuning. Kussings maak nie die kol toe so groot is die kol. Spieël is so vuil en vol merke. Op die eetgerei sit ou kos nog, moet eers gewas word in piepklein wasbak. Borde sit vol vingermerke. Daar was geen afdrooglap nie. Twee stortkoppe in vensterbank maar nie waar dit moet wees. Beddegoed was skoon maar kort nuwes. Op die stoele se dwarslatte kan jy sien dit is baie lanklaas afgestof. Kon nie gou genoeg die volgende oggend daar wegkom nie. Dit kon regtig skoon gewees het.

Verblyf vir ‘n vinnige oorstop was perfek vir die prys. Linne kan dalk net aandag geniet, katoen duvet oortreksels word voorgestel en miskien badhanddoeke. Was nie bewus ons moes ons eie voorsien nie. Daar was net 2 klein hande-handdoeke in die chalet.

Vinnig en maklik vir een aand se oorslaap met baie basiese geriewe.

Die plek lyk of dit so bietjie kan doen met 'n opknap en kort so bietjie aandag. Dit was ook nie 100% skoon nie. Ek stel voor jy kry 'n wegneemete, want dit is net 'n kamer met 'n yskas in en 'n paar borde plus 'n ketel. Mens parkeer darem reg voor jou deur onder 'n afdak wat gerieflik is. Dit is so effens moeilik om te kry, veral in die donker, so bel maar eers om uit te vind waar dit is.

Silvex's response

Goeiedag Archie,

Ek sal voorstel dat jy volgendekeer 'n selfsorg eenheid bespreek daar is kookgeriewe beskikbaar. die oornag het net die basiese toerusting in om die verblyf aangenaam vir ons klient te maak soos 'n koppie koffie in die oggend en indien jy 'n weg neem ete gekoop het in 'n bord te kan eet opgewarm in die mikrogolf met 'n yskas om jou goed koud te hou.

Sou eerder meer wou betaal vir beter geriewe.

'n Engelstalige motortydskrif het by geleentheid dié opmerking oor 'n motor gemaak: "Cheap for a reason". Die opmerking pas 100% by Silvex. Die beddens en beddegoed was nie op standaard nie. Die matrasse was pap en veral die komberse was nie skoon nie. Die wasbak in die badkamer is van die klein tipe wat 'n mens gewoonlik in toilette in private wonings aantref. Daar is nie 'n bad in die badkamer nie en dit gaan maar moeilik om klein kindertjies te stort. As ek ooit weer op Piet Retief moet oornag sou ek spesifiek vra dat Silvex nie oorweeg moet word nie.

Silvex's response

Ek is jammer dat ons nie aan jou standard voldoen het nie. Ons is goedkoop en lewer die beste moontlik vir oornag verblyf. Ons bied nie hotel verblyf nie en het jou kinders ook laat bly, weereens jammer vir die ongerief ervaar.

Heerlik snoesig en warm met ons aankoms. Lekker ontspan na die week van harde werk.

Verblyf is 'n winskoop in die huidige ekonomiese omstandighede waarin die land hom bevind. Lekker ontspan met 'n bietjie totale afsluiting van die daaglikse gejaag by werk en oor die algemeen. Lanklaas net op die bed gelê en TV kyk, wat jare laas met my gebeur het. Sal graag weer daar gaan oorbly.

Good value for money.

We arrived around 8 pm, the lady who welcomed us (Jeanette I think) was extremely friendly. We were quite tired to go out for food and she offered us something to eat, which we enjoyed very much. For what we paid, I was pleasantly surprised with what the place offered. The only negative thing is that the shower in our room could not be adjusted to a comfortable bathing temperature, it would only switch between cold and hot.

Kon nie kos maak en was nie warm water nie. Glad nie gelukkig.

Die selfsorg-eenheid het die pot of iets om ontbyt te maak nie, daar is nie vooraf gesê daar is nie. Die plekkie baie beknop. Daar was nie warm water en is gekla daaroor en toe ons weg is Sondag was daar nog steeds nie iemand om the kyk wat is fout nie.

Silvex's response

Ons semi selfsorg eenheiede beskik oor yskas kettel, mikrogolf en eetgerei. Ek sal jul def volgende keer in 'n vol selfsorg plaas. Ek is jammer dat jul 'n slegte naweek gehad het wat die weer met baie reën was en dus sleg vir visvang. Ek hoop om jul def weer te sien en dat jul dat baie vis sal vang en lekker bly.
Groete,
Louisa

Ons het baie later by Silvex aangekom as wat ons gesê het, maar dit was geen probleem nie. Nicky was baie behulpsaam en die verblyf was meer as wat ons verwag het.

Geen krag - Geen water - Geen noodplan?

Hulle het nodig om hulle beddegoed te verbeter. Bedval, lakens en duvet nie net verlengde bedval en oorgooideken nie, asseblief.

Silvex's response

Hi Deon
Ek is jammer oor die krag wat af was maar dit is 'n Eskom probleem en was net 40 min Sondag oggend. Die nagval laken kombinasie is baie modern en prakties vir ons jammer as dit nie jou keuse is.
Ons het 'n kragopwekker op bystand indien die krag lank af is.
Groete,
Louisa

Excellent service, staff friendly and helpful, the place clean and security excellent.

I will definitely book at Silvex should I come to Piet Retief again. The service we received there was excellent, firstly the welcome, the staff was so friendly and to top it all they ironed our clothes. If you want something to be washed they do it for you. The security is excellent. Keep on doing the great job. I really enjoyed staying there.

Thanks so much.It was a pleasure having you with us and looking forward to the next visit.

Skoon en goed geleë.

Ons was doodmoeg na 'n lang reis en ons eenheid by Silvex was netjies, skoon en ideaal vir die perfekte nagrus. Baie dankie.

Was good enough for our purposes. Just an overnight stay.

When we arrived no one was there to open the gate. No one to receive us. No bell to ring at gate. Not impressed. No one answers a cellphone. No directions to office or reception. No basin in room for dishes. Cloth just tossed on the pile in the little dish (probably for dishes). Had to ask for toilet paper and towels. Didn't see a soul after we finally got the keys.

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

Was goed genoeg vir wat ons nodig gehad het. Net vir oorslaap.

Met aankoms was daar niemand om die hek oop te maak nie. Geen persoon om ons te ontvang nie. Nêrens eers 'n klokkie wat hy kan lui by die hek nie. Glad nie beïndruk daarmee nie. Geen persoon antwoord hul cell nie. Geen aanwysings waar die kantoor of ontvangs is nie. Geen wasbak in kamer om skottelgoed te was nie. Lap sommer op hoop gegooi in die skotteltjie (seker vir die skottelgoed se was). Moes vra vir nog toiletpapier en handdoeke. Geen mens weer gesien na ons die sleutel uiteindelik ontvang het.

Silvex's response

Goeie dag Ronell,

Baie dankie vir die terugvoer, ek is jammer om te verneem dat jul verblyf nie na wense was nie.

Graag wil ek om verskoning vra dat daar nie dadelik iemand beskikbaar was om julle te help nie en ook vir die onbeskikbaarheid van die personeel. Julle was gereeld uit oor die twee dae, meestal as daar iemand op die perseel was om te help met enige versoeke en vrae. Dit spyt my, omdat ons graag enige ongelukkigheid so ver moontlik wil uitskakel.

Die gastekamers het ongelukkig nie opwasgeriewe nie. Daar is wel 'n dame wat die was van skottelgoed behartig, dus hoef gaste nie hul eie skottelgoed te was nie.

Ek vertrou dat jy tog jou tyd andersins geniet het.

Groete,
Louisa

It was very nice and I will recommend it.

The place was clean and neat, the light outside can be put on a dimmer switch or darker curtains to make the light in the room less at night.

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

Dit was baie lekker en sal dit aanbeveel.

Die blyplek was skoon en netjies, die buitelig kan dalk op `n veranderbare sterkte skakelaar gesit te word of donkerder, gordyne te gebruik om die beligting in die kamer te verminder gedurende die nag.
