Wat 'n wonderlike, skoon en netjiese plek om te bly.

Ons gasheer en gasvrou was baie vriendelik. Sal ons definitief weer sien as ons daai rigting gaan. Die selfsorg-eenheid het alles wat mens nodig het om gerieflik te bly. Baie dankie.

A small piece of heaven on earth.

This is the neatest, most incredible, well-kept place you can find. The most beautiful antiques. My children were happy and did not want to return. Everything you could possibly need is there, and the full-size fridge with the kids was most welcome. A must for any family. A piece of paradise!

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

'n Klein stukkie hemel op aarde.

Dit is die netjieste, ongelooflikste, goedversorgde plekkie wat jy kan kry. Die mooiste, mooiste oudhede. My kinders was gelukkig en wou nie terugkeer nie. Alles wat jy moontlik kan benodig is daar, en die volgrootte yskas met die kleinspan was baie welkom. 'n Moet vir enige gesin. 'n Stukkie paradys!

Ons het in Meerkat gebly. Dit was 'n wonderlike ervaring. Eenheid het alles wat jy nodig het en is goed geleë naby alles in die dorp. Gasheer en gasvrou baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Ons sal weer daar bly en kan Ta Mala aanbeveel vir enigiemand wat Prince Albert besoek.

Spesiale plekkie met goeie afwerking in 'n rustige area.

Die Meerkat cottage is perfek vir twee mense en ons sal beslis wil teruggaan. Die detail en afwerking waarmee die cottage restoureer was is baie spesiaal en sorg vir 'n unieke ervaring. Die cottage is net so twee blokke weg van die sentrale dorp waar meeste eetplekke geleë is so dit is maklik om rond te stap vanaf Ta Mala's. Erika was ook baie goed met kommunikasie wat bygedra het tot 'n lekker ervaring.

Lovely and quaint.

Little step in hallway to lounge and bedroom was a nightmare death trap for us frail people as we tripped and fell before we put suitcases there to prevent it happening. Always having to be aware. Also, the braai grid was not clean. Also, I was concerned about no off-street parking, but no problem. Otherwise great accommodation.

Very pleasant two day stay, quiet and peaceful.

My daughter and I stayed for two nights. Lovely cottage with everything we needed for self-catering. Close to various restaurants, the hotel, galleries etc. Quiet area ─ we needed that, coming from Cape Town, both working in corporate environments! Enjoyable, definitely would recommend.

Bekostigbare, goed toegeruste, eenheid met pragtige dekor.

Ons was aangenaam verras toe ons moeg vanaf die Weskus by Ta Mala's arriveer om te oornag. Volledige kombuis, badkamer met groot stort en bad. Deurgaans is gehaltelinne gebruik en verwarming is ook aan aandag gegee al was dit nie nodig om die elektriese kombers of lugversorging te gebruik nie. Wat egter indrukwekkend was, was om te leer hoe Ta Mala's tot stand gekom het en foto's te sien van hoeveel moeite in die restourasie ingesit is. As gereelde reisigers het ons nog nie van verblyf gebruik gemaak waar daar soveel moeite gedoen is met restourasie en dekor nie. Dis heerlik om in so huislike atmosfeer oor te bly, het gevoel asof ons die eienaars goed ken toe ons die volgende oggend vroeg vertrek het. Eenheid was pynlik netjies en natuurlik was die onderdakbraai vir my 'n bonus.

Friendly reception, beautiful interior, lovely bed linen.

It was a lovely place to stay. If you travel with friends, make sure you book the two interleading units. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night and we will definitely recommend Ta Mala's to future guests. Clean, spacious, crafty interior and everything that was needed. The full size fridges were welcome - most places have bar fridges that can be quite problematic at times. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us.

'n Stukkie nostalgie!

Wanneer 'n mens deur die asemrowende omgewing van die Swartberge reis en onder die indruk kom van 'n ou-ou bergpas met sy stories van mense wat daaraan gebou het, en jy stop uiteindelik in Prins Albert voor 'n ou huis wat daardie selfde oudheid adem, voel jy klein en nietig en wil jy net vir 'n paar oomblikke stil wees en nadink oor die lewe van gister en eergister en vandag. Ons het die voorreg gehad om in die Meerkat-kamer tuis te gaan. Dit is oud. En luuks. Aangrypend. 'n Belewenis wat jy nie moet mis nie.

Ta Mala's Self-Catering Cottages's response

Baie dankie vir hierdie besondere opsomming van alles waarvoor TaMala's staan. Die karoo en Prince Albert lë na aan ons harte en ons wou so graag hierdie hartsboodskap oordra in elke huisie. Meerkat is die toonbeeld van karoo leefstyl 250 jaar gelede. Ons is so bly julle het dit geniet. Ons hoop om julle weer te sien.

This was truly a first in such a treasured little house with a big heart!

My husband was sceptical at first when we arrived at the house, but a little while in the friendly atmosphere, I realised that I've seen Meerkat in a magazine and was excited. Everything was perfect. Thank you for the good night's rest.

Dit was voorwaar 'n eerste in so 'n kosbare klein huisie met 'n groot hart!

My man was aanvanklik skepties toe ons voor die huisie stilhou, maar na 'n rukkie in die vriendelike ruimte het ek besef dat ek Meerkat al in 'n tydskrif gesien het en was opgewonde. Alles perfek. Dankie vir 'n goeie nagrus.

'n Verrassing.

Ons het nie geweet die huis het 'n rietdakplafon nie. My man is baie allergies vir stof en dit is nooit vir ons 'n opsie nie. Verder het die huis 'n sterk Doom-reuk gehad wat iemand met allergieë nie bevoordeel nie. Ek dink hulle spuit dit om die goggas uit te hou. Daar was geen goggas of ongediertes nie. Verder is die eienaar baie gaaf en het ons geen klagtes nie, ek dink vir mense wat nie so sensitief vir stof is nie, kan dit baie goed werk.

Ta Mala's is aan te bevele.

Ta Mala's se Windpomphuisie is skoon en toegerus met enige iets wat jy mag nodig hê. Dit is lekker sentraal geleë en veilig. Ons het heerlik gebly. Die enigste probleem is dat die betalery moeilik is omdat mens tot 09:00 moet wag vir die skoonmaker om jou betaling met 'n kaartmasjien te doen. Ons wou graag vroeg vertrek, maar kon nie, omdat ons vir haar moes wag om te betaal. Daar is ongelukkig nie 'n ander betaal opsie nie.

Alles en nog wat! Uitstekende verblyf in die pragtige Prins Albert.

Heerlike verblyf, die prys lyk bietjie swaar as jy bespreek, maar dit is elke sent die moeite werd. Heerlik afgekoel in die plons-poel. Baie goeie aandag aan detail. Ons het gedog die muskietnet is dekoratief, toe nie! Lekker braaigeriewe en die doodse stilte wat net die Karoo kan bied.

Overpriced.

The price for this unit should be a room and not self-catering. No indoor shower. No room to move. Too much squashed in a small space. Cleaners also wanted us out at 8 am. It was not a good visit. Disappointing.

Ta Mala's Self-Catering Cottages's response

Dear Michelle
Meerkat cottage is 250 years old. We went out of our way to preserve the charm of years ago. Meerkat is not a modern luxurious guest unit but rather a gem from the past. This information is well documented on our website, with up to date photographs. We are well aware of the fact that not everybody will appreciate Meerkat Cottage.

Check out time at all our units is 10:00. We do however, allow guests on request, to stay longer if needed. We even let our cleaning staff start their work at 09:00 during weekends to accommodate guests. All this said, we want to apologise for the fact that you did not enjoy your stay at Meerkat Cottage.

Kind regards,
Dewald and Erika

Aangename ervaring.

Dankie vir die eienaars en personeel vir die puik diens en vriendelikheid. Inligtingspamflet m.b.t. tot die geskiedenis van Ta Mala en oor Prins Albert was `n groot bonus. Die plekkie is gerieflik sentraal geleë. Dit is skoon, netjies en oulik gemeubileer. Ons het Karoo rustigheid en gasvryheid ervaar by Ta Mala. Sal definitief weer daar bespreek.

Wonderlike ervaring in 'n besondere gastehuis met karakter en Karoo omgewing wat ons baie geniet het.

Baie kunstig en is die outydse karakter behou en 'n groot belewenis om dit te ervaar in 'n huis wat 100 jaar oud is.

Picturesque accommodation.

We stayed two winter nights at Ta Mala. The little houses are traditional houses that have been restored, so it is modern yet traditional. Equipped with everything you need. Fireplace and winter linen so it wasn't cold. Ta Mala location is perfect, close enough so you can explore the town on foot but far enough so the traffic in the main road doesn't bother you.

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

Prentjieboek mooi verblyf.

Ons het in die winter 2 nagte by Ta Mala's spandeer. Die huisies is ou tradisionele huise wat pragtig gerestoureer is, so dit is modern en tog outyds. Alles wat jy nodig het is in die huise. Vir die winter het dit 'n kaggel en winter beddegoed, so ons het nie koud gekry nie. Ta Mala's is perfek geleë, na genoeg aan die dorp om die dorpie te voet te verken, maar ver genoeg dat die verkeer in die hoofstraat nie pla.

Only 1 word: fantastic.

The house was very tidy and well equipped with all the necessities. I loved the privacy, the simple way in which we made our reservation, and the hospitality we experienced, even in the owner's absence. As a regular traveller, I'd recommend Ta Mala anytime. Thank you very much.

Slegs 1 woord: fantasties.

Woning was baie netjies en goed toegerus met alles wat jy nodig het. Ek hou van die privaatheid en sekerlik die flinke manier waarop verblyf bekom kon word en die gasvryheid, selfs in die afwesigheid van die eienaar. As gereelde reisiger beveel ek enige tyd Ta Mala aan. Baie dankie.

It was a wonderful day, New Year's Eve and we enjoyed it a lot.

The rooms, kitchen and toilets were very neat, clean and beautiful. The only things I would ask for next time would be: 1. instant coffee- there was a little bit of coffee, but it was ground coffee, but we didn't see a machine that could use ground coffee. 2. In the bedrooms there is aircon but even with all the lights off and the curtains closed there is too much light in the room to be able to sleep properly, because of the aircon's light. If they could maybe put masking tape or something over it it would make a big difference. Otherwise it was beautiful and very nice accommodation. Thank you!

Dit was 'n wonderlike dag, Oujaarsaand en ons het dit baie geniet.

Die kamers, kombuis en toilette was baie netjies, skoon en pragtig. Die enigste dinge wat ek sou vra vir volgende keer is: 1. Kitskoffie - daar was 'n klein bietjie koffie, maar dit was gemaalde koffie, maar ons het geen masjien gesien wat gemaalde koffie sou gebruik het nie. 2. In die slaapkamers is daar lugversorging maar selfs met al die ligte af en die gordyne toe is daar te veel lig in die kamer om ordentlik te kan slaap weens die lig van die lugversorging. As hulle miskien masking tape of so iets kan verskaf om oor die ligte te plak sou dit 'n groot verskil maak. Anders was dit pragtig en baie lekker verblyf. Baie dankie!

Ta Mala's Self-Catering Cottages's response

Baie dankie vir u terugvoer. Kitskoffie moet daar wees en ek vra om verskoning. Binne in die kombuiskas is 'n plunger om van die gemaalde koffie te gebruik. Die plunger was dalk net so gebêre dat dit nie duidelik sigbaar was nie. Wat betref die led liggie van die lugversorger, op die afstandbeheer is daar 'n knoppie wat hierdie irriterende liggie afskakel. Ons het melding gemaak daarvan in die brosjure wat in die eenhede beskikbaar is. Nogmaals dankie vir 'n terugvoer en ook ondersteuning, sonder dit kan ons nie die diens lewer en verbeter op foute nie.

It was a blissful getaway and chance to rest in a place that is prepared with a lot of care.

I stayed in Meerkat. Everything was so neat and special, to the flowers in the bathroom. The shower outside was an experience with the moon and stars that peep at you! Everything was very practical and accessible, the bed was very comfortable, and the chairs under the bower were used a lot! Wish I could have used the braai or fireplace, but the weekend was just too short. Thank you very much that I was able to stay there - a privilege to sleep in a tastefully decorated place with a lot of history.

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

Dit was 'n salige wegbreek en ruskans in 'n plek wat met groot moeite en sorg voorberei is.

Ek het in Meerkat gebly. Alles was so netjies en spesiaal, tot die blommetjies in die badkamer. Die buitestort was 'n belewenis, met die maan en die sterre wat vir jou loer! Alles is baie prakties en toeganklik gemaak, die bed het heerlik geslaap, en die stoele onder die prieel was baie gebruik! Wens ek kon die braai of kaggel benut het, maar die naweek was te vinnig om. Baie dankie dat ek daar kon oorbly ─ 'n voorreg om in 'n kunstig versorgde plek met 'n groot geskiedenis te kon oorslaap!

Wonderful, cozy, old world charm!

We stayed in Meerkat (Oct. 2016). Perfect little cottage, even with ancient furniture, candles, lamps, musquitoe-net, coal stove, large bath and outdoor shower. Has everything you need to find peace for your soul (remember to bring a good book and some bubble bath!). Ta Mala's team went out of their way to make our wedding anniversery very special: huge bouquet of flowers and sparkling wine in the fridge completed the romantic, old-world atmofphere in the little house.

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

Wonderlike, knus, ouwêreldse verblyf!

Ons het in Meerkat tuisgegaan (Okt 2016). Dit is die perfekte ou kothuisie, kompleet met antieke meubels, kerse, lampies, 'n muskietnet, koolstofie, 'n reuse bad en 'n buite stort. Dit het alles wat jy nodig het om rus vir jou siel te vind (pak 'n lekker leesboek en borrelbad in!). Verder het die Ta Mala-span werklik uit hulle pad gegaan om die viering van ons huweliksherdenking spesiaal te maak: 'n reuse bos blomme en vonkelwyn in die yskas het die romantiese, ouwêreldse gevoel van die huisie mooi afgerond.

Classic Karoo home with beautiful rooms.

I was in Prins Albert for a conference. Stayed three nights. A beautifully restored little house, very comfortable, very clean, and lots of atmosphere. I parked outse on the pavement, and it was quite safe. Wonderful experience.

Wat 'n heerlike verrassing om by Ta Mala in te stap met prentjiemooi dekor. Windpomp is 'n heerlike kuierhuis en ten volle ingerig. Ons het net ondervind dat Meerkat nie heeltemal toegerus is vir selfsorg nie. Die buitestort is 'n groot bederf, maar beslis net somertyd, tensy jy dapper genoeg is om dit in die winter te trotseer.

Rustig, skoon, gemaklik en veilig.

Die huisie is baie mooi gerestoureer met spesiale stukke wat dit 'n baie lekker gesellige gevoel gee. Alles was netjies, skoon en gemaklik. Die snoesige kamerjas was 'n bonus. Dit is sentraal geleë en stapafstand vanaf die dorp, maar jy het ook nie al die gemaal op jou voorstoep nie, wat dit lekker rustig maak vir 'n middagslapie. Uitstekende verblyf, sal dit definitief aanbeveel.
