Waarde vir geld, uitstekende geriewe en diens.

Die verblyf was uitstekend en ek kan geen fout met enige iets vind nie. Die prys wat jy betaal vir wat jy kry, is nie vergelykbaar nie. Ek sal regtig die plek aan almal aanbeveel.

Value for money, excellent facilities and service.

The stay was excellent and I can't fault anything. The price you pay for what you get is not comparable. I would really recommend the place to everyone.

Peaceful, quiet and close to shops and the Midlands Liberty Shopping Mall.

I had a good stay. Clean and neat room. Excellent WiFi and air conditioning, including a bar fridge. That was very helpful as I was alone and had easy access to do some work. Only one night there was some noise of up and down after 10 pm of closing the doors loud. I guess because it was Christmas Eve. I am a light sleeper that disturbed my sleep, and it is difficult to fall back asleep. I do understand that it is a guest house, and we are close to each other. Besides that, I loved having my own in and out access. I loved it, will come back again.

Gasvrou vriendelik, omgewing rustig.

Ons het heerlik gebly, mooi stil omgewing met pragtige bome aan die oorkant. Sy was baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig, het ons binne 5 minute nadat ons vertrek het gebel om te sê ons het elektriese toerusting daar vergeet!

Wat 'n lekker plek om jou kop neer te lê.

Die ontvangs by die gastehuis was besonders. Die ontbyt was uit die boonste. Sagte kussing om jou kop neer te lê. Dit is die resep vir 'n goeie gastehuis en beslis ons ervaring.

Warm welcome, beautiful clean room and scrumptious breakfast.

Thank you very much for the warm welcome despite having to leave your hubby in hospital to be there when we arrived. We were impressed with the clean and very comfortable and tastefully decorated room. Our breakfast was ready when we reached the dining room and it was an absolute spread and super delicious. We got more than we expected, truly excellent value for money.

Ongerieflik.

Kon nie breekgoed gebruik om die aand ons ete te geniet nie. Geen tafel buite in die tuin om te eet en te kuier nie, aangesien ons nie die eetkamer in die aand kon gebruik nie. Die ontbyt was werklik onaanvaarbaar, een eier en word nie eers gevra hoe jy die eier verkies nie. Twee van ons gesin het baie siek geword van die ontbyt, ons vermoed dit was die sampioene. Eerste en laatste besoek.

Translate to English.

Inconvenient.

Couldn't use crockery to enjoy our meal that evening. No table outside in the garden to eat and socialize as we could not use the dining room in the evening. The breakfast was truly unacceptable, one egg and not even being asked how you prefer the egg. Two of our family got very sick from the breakfast, we suspect it was the mushrooms. First and last visit.

In reply to your comments regarding your stay with us we wish to bring to your notice the following:
1. We are a bed & breakfast establishment and do not have to lend out crockery and cutlery as we did for you in the first night of your stay and did not charge you for this. We had to cover the cost of washing the dishes and you did not offer to pay for this service. The dining room is not available to our guests who book in for Bed & Breakfast only.
2. You had a braai and, of course, there was a table and chairs for you to sit at.
3. We did not lend you crockery and cutlery the second night as we were preparing dinner for other guests and did not have enough for you.
4. We went out of our way to prepare you breakfast packs as you left earlier, and this was done at our cost as there was no prior arrangement made.
5. We did ask the guests how they would like their eggs and that is how it was prepared.You do not mention that our breakfast is three different kinds of cereal, yoghurt, fresh juice, toast, eggs, mushrooms, tea and coffee.
6. Regret that only two members got sick, not all, therefore it could not have been the mushrooms. You did buy take away food which you left behind and this food was definitely gone off, as it smelled, and we had to get rid of it.
7. We take pride in the cleanliness of our establishment and this can be noted from all our guests comments.
8. We regret that you were not happy, but we can assure you that other guests on this site have given us a very good rating.
