Baie netjiese plek.

Ons het baie lekker gekuier, het net een nag oornag maar na 'n ver rit was dit presies wat ons nodig gehad het. Vriendelike verwelkoming met 'n botteltjie water en ons was sommer dadelik tuis.

Very neat place.

We had a great time, only stayed one night but after a long drive it was exactly what we needed. Friendly welcome with a bottle of water and we were right at home.

This is our second stay at The Barracks - a lovely setting with friendly hosts.

The Barracks is situated at the end of town which allows for a nice tranquil stay. Everything is however still within walking distance and it is very safe to walk to a restaurant at night.

Hartlike en vriendelike ontvangs. Kamer, badkamer en agterplaas kort 'n deeglike skoonmaak en instandhouding.

Gasheer en gasvrou vriendelik. Kamer en badkamer vuil. Uitgebreide laag van swart alge in badkamer. Oppervlaktes waaraan gaste moet raak (deure en skakelaars) met taai stoflaag bedek. Sigbare stoflaag op teëls en houtlyste. Nagrus versteur deur helder eksterne lig wat by venster bokant deur inskyn (die kantgordyn is te klein en keer nie skerp lig nie). Badkamerlig bly ure aan nadat 'n mens dit afskakel en skyn op bed as 'n mens gaan slaap. Dit skyn ook verby kante van die toe deur. Te min plek om persoonlike items neer te sit. Kamer baie naby straat geleë.

Warm and friendly welcome. Room, bathroom and backyard need a thorough cleaning and maintenance.

Host and hostess friendly. Room and bathroom dirty. Extensive layer of black algae in bathroom. Surfaces that guests have to touch (doors and switches) covered with sticky dust layer. Visible layer of dust on tiles and wooden moldings. Night rest disturbed by bright external light shining in from window above door (the side curtain is too small and does not block bright light). Bathroom light stays on hours after one turns it off and shines on bed when one goes to sleep. It also shines past sides of the closed door. Too little space to put down personal items. Room located very close to the street.

The Barracks 's response

Dear Annamie,

• There was mould build up above the shower due to the steam that the extractor fan should have managed, this has subsequently been scrubbed and treated with Borax.
• The bathroom light is one of those battery type lights that stay on if there is loadshedding.
• We can do nothing about the room being close to the road, we are one street back of the main road opposite Colesberg Tennis Club.
• The light that would have been shining above your room is a solar light that lights up the pathway at night and helps when there is loadshedding. We could possibly look at moving this elsewhere.
• Space for personal belongings is a tricky one. We do have a wardrobe for hanging items and then floor space for bags, cooler boxes etc.

It is not the norm and we sincerely apologize for the way you felt. We have taken an adult and honest assesment of the situation and would like to offer you a future stay when travelling the N1 next.

Regards
Mike & Annalie King

Salige oase van stilte en rus.

Ons het een nag oorgeslaap. Tydens 'n vorige oorslaapgeleentheid in Colesberg kon ons skaars slaap weens die geraas vanaf die N1. Hierdie kamer was heelnag heerlik stil - 'n kombinasie van die dik, ou mure en die ligging onder die heuwel, dink ek. Eskom het natuurlik die krag afgesit, maar die eienaars het die elektrisiteit aangevul, wat beteken het die ligte het aangebly. Omdat ons eers laatmiddag sou aankom, het die eienaar vroeg al die lugversorging aangesit, sodat ons kamer warm kon wees vir die koue nag. Die beddegoed was van goeie gehalte en ons het baie gemaklik oorgebly. Ons motor kon agter 'n geslote hek parkeer. Definitief 'n veilige en goeie keuse vir oorslaap.

Blissful oasis of silence and rest.

We slept over one night. During a previous sleepover event in Colesberg we could hardly sleep due to the noise from the N1. This room was wonderfully quiet all night - a combination of the thick, old walls and the location down the hill, I think. Eskom of course turned off the power, but the owners topped up the electricity, which meant the lights stayed on. Because we wouldn't arrive until late afternoon, the owner turned on the air conditioning early, so that our room could be warm for the cold night. The bedding was of good quality and we had a very comfortable stay. Our car could park behind a locked gate. Definitely a safe and good choice for an overnight stay.

Uitstekend.

Michael en Annelie was uiters vriendelik en ons het dadelik laat tuis voel. Hulle het uit hulle pad gegaan om tydens load shedding steeds alles te laat vlot verloop veral met 'n minus 2 grade. Die ontbyt bedien was absoluut die geld werd.

Hierdie was nie die eerste keer dat ons by The Barracks oorgeslaap het nie.

Hierdie is ons halfweg stop tussen Gauteng en die Wes-Kaap. The Barracks voel soos huis-weg-van-huis. Die ontvangs is altyd vriendelik en gasvry. Ons word gekontak op die dag wat ons gaan oorslaap om seker te maak hoe laat hulle ons kan verwag en of daar enigiets is wat hulle vir ons kan voorberei. Gerieflike kamers en uitstekende diens. Sal beslis weer daar oorslaap.

This was not the first time we had stayed at The Barracks.

We are contacted on the day we are going to sleep over to make sure what time they can expect us and if there is anything they can prepare for us. Comfortable rooms and excellent service. Will definitely stay there again.

Baie gerieflik.

Ek is hartlik verwelkom en vriendelik rondgewys. Die kamer was baie netjies, skoon en pragtig versier. Alles wat ek moontlik kon benodig is voorsien, selfs muskiet-afweerder, vir ingeval hulle mens sou pla. Die bed was baie gemaklik en ek het werklik lekker uitgerus na 'n lang dag se ry. Die badkamer het 'n lieflike hoekbad wat ek so geniet het. Ek stel The Barracks voor aan enige reisiger.

Linne goed. Kamers en badkamers ruim. Gasheer vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Ons het lekker hier oornag. Geen probleme. Ek sal net aanbeveling maak dat die struike en bome bietjie gesnoei word, indien dit nie al gedoen is nie, by die paadjie voor die kamers. Lyk so mooi en gee rustige atmosfeer maar die hang te laag, veral die manne moet gebukkend loop.

Well recommended. The Barracks really makes an effort to ensure comfort and privacy

Friendly and personal welcome at arrival. The Barracks really makes an effort to ensure comfort and privacy. Own secure parking. The rooms are very comfortable with good beds, a spacious clean bathroom and above all very quiet. Far away from all the traffic on the N1. For dinner we chose the on-site restaurant. And were served a 3 course 'boerekos' meal, prepared by the lady of the house. While her husband lit a fire in the dining room filled with antiques. Really very homely and the food tasted particularly nice. The lamb chops were delicious and crispy. The chocolate bomb for dessert was a real treat. The breakfast in the morning was extensive, with delicious fresh ingredients. Very helpful hosts who also helped us with printing documents before departure. They waved us goodbye personally. A very charming and pleasant B&B where we would like to stay again. Well recommended!

Vriendelike en warm eienaars, skoon, netjies kamer, veilige parkering.

Dit is nou al ons 4de keer wat ons hier tuisgaan. Altyd baie vriendelik ontvang, kamer pragtig netjies skoon, TV werk, badkamer netjies, skoon, lekker sepies en shampoos, sagte skoon handdoeke en hul maak die heerlikste ontbyt. Amper vergeet ek, jy word hartlik verwelkom met 'n glasie cherrie, nou wat wil 'n moeë reisiger nou meer hê.

I almost forget, you are warmly welcomed with a glass of sherry, now what more could a weary traveler want.

First time we have stayed in the Paddock's which is ideal for families etc. Should have ordered the braai packs as there are braai's available at the units and weather was fantastic. The dinner was outstanding. The friendliness and politeness made the stay very enjoyable. Will definitely make use of their services again should we stay over in Colesberg.

Redelik.

Bad, wasbak en stort gordyn kan doen met bietjie skoonmaak. Daar is baie potensiaal in hierdie gastehuis maar die fyner punte faal. Hulle het 'n historiese gebou en kan daarop voortbou deur bv. die krane ens te "brasso". Dit was immers offisiers menasie gedurende boereoorlog.

Reasonable.

Bath, sink and shower curtain could do with some cleaning. There is a lot of potential in this guest house but the finer points fail. They have a historic building and can build on it by e.g. the taps etc. too "brasso". After all, it was officers' menagerie during the Boer war.

Met by host on the street as I rode slowly past, uncertain of where I was. Safe parking sorted, shown room and all that was necessary to find my way around. Large, clean, pleasant room and en-suite. Air con to heat and cool. Wi-Fi. Host pointed out restaurant close by where I could dine after my journey. A good night's sleep on a good mattresses and bedding. The hosts prepared the breakfast themselves on a Sunday morning which was a nice touch as was the full breakfast. A pleasant stay.

Ou plekkie, maar beslis die moeite werd.

Het oornag by die Barracks. Die gashere is ongelooflik vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die plekkie is bietjie oud, maar baie netjies en skoon. Ons het heerlik gemaklik geslaap. Die ontbyt was heerlik en mens kry individuele aandag. Die Alaskan Malamute was die dierbaarste hond uit en my dogtertjie heel verlief op haar. Ek sal hulle beslis aanbeveel. Warm en goeie mense!

Mike messaged me in the morning to ask me to let him know when we were about 30 minutes away so he could put the heaters on in the room. Amazing service and thoughtfulness. A lovely evening in Colesberg in a great B&B.

Mike en sy vrou het 'n wonderlike, troeteldiervriendelike gastehuis.

Ek en my gesin (en honde) wil baie baie dankie sê vir Mike en sy vrou se heerlike, gerieflike en gasvrye gastehuis op Colesberg. Die Barracks is ideaal geleë,en die veilige privaat binnehof, skitterskoon gastehuis en uitstekende diens maak dit die perfekte oornagblyplek. Mike het ons help parkeer in 'n toesluitarea vir ons motor en sleepwa, 'n welkom-sjerrie aangedra en selfs 'n ekstra slot-en-sleutel beskikbaar gestel. Op sy aanbeveling het ons heerlik geëet op in die straat by sy vriend Nick se restaurant. Die kamer het slaapplek vir 4 persone en was uiters gemaklik. Baie, baie dankie Mike, sien jou eersdaags weer.

Die Barracks has an ideal location and the safe, private courtyard, spotless guesthouse, and outstanding service makes it perfect for an overnight stay. Mike helped us to park in the locked area for our car and trailer, gave us some sherry, and even an extra lock and key. He recommended his friend Nick's restaurant in the same streat - the food was delicious. The room accommodates 4 people and it was very comfortable. Thanks so so much Mike, you will see us again.

Die vriendelikheid en professionele manier waarop ons getrakteer is, is beslis prysenswaardig. Michael die eienaar het selfs voor ons daar aangekom het ons gebel om uit te vind hoe dit met ons gaan en hoe laat ons daar sal aankom. Van daar af tot ons vertrek het, is ons op die hande gedra met egte plattelandse gasvryheid wat dit 'n unieke en onvergeetlike ondervinding gemaak het.

Nie net 'n halfpad oorslaap plek nie.

Ons het die verblyf by The Barracks aangenaam gevind. Ons het van die aandete opsie gebruik gemaak, en die ete en wyn goeie waarde vir geld gevind. Selfs my tiener seuns het genoeg geëet! Ons kamer was reeds heerlik warm gemaak toe ons in die winters middag daar aankom. Alles was mooi skoon en netjies. Ons was op pad tussen Gauteng en Knysna, en het daarom beplan om sommer weer vroeg te ry. Die aangename, rustige, huislike atmosfeer het ons oortuig om rustig op te staan, ontbyt te eet en dan weer verder te gaan. Ek kan vir seker sien dat ek hier meer as een nag sal kan oorslaap. Vir ons persoonlike smaak het die blinders in die kamer, asook die venster bo die deur heeltemal te veel lig ingelaat om behoorlik te kon donker maak vir 'n goeie nagrus.

Not just an overnight spot.

We loved our stay at The Barracks. We booked dinner and found the food and wine to be great value for money. The portions was even big enough for my teenaged boys! Wonderful warm room when we arrived on a winter's afternoon. Everything beautiful and neat. We were on our way between Gauteng and Knysna, so we had plans to leave early the next morning. But the calm, home atmosphere compelled us to get up on our time and have brekafast before we hit the road again. I can definitely see myself spending more thatn just the night here. We found the blinds and the window above the door unable to block out the light sufficiently for a good night's rest.

Baie veilige plek met vriendelike diens.

Die oornag op roete vanaf Kaap na Gauteng is gemaklik met baie ruimte in die kamers en badkamers. Die stoep voor die kamers asook die pragtige plantegroei maak dit baie privaat vanaf die straat. Die geskiedkundige gebou is werklik baie goed onderhou met die basiese toegerus. TV en alles was in werkende toestand en die bestuurder van die plek baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Die parkering is weg vanaf die pad en ons fietse was veilig agter op die trailer. Die aandete asook die kospakkies wat ons vir ontbyt bestel het was goed voorberei en voorgesit. Veral die mans het die aandete baie geniet na die lang dag op die pad.

Very safe place with friendly service.

This overnight stay en route to Cape Town is comfortable with loads of space in the rooms and bathrooms. The veranda outside the room and the beautiful plant life makes it very private and removed from the street. The historical building is really very well looked after and equipped with all of the basics. TV and everything else is in working order and the manager was so friendly and helpful. Parking is off the street and our bikes were safe on the back of the trailer. The dinner and the lunch packs we got for breakfast were well prepared and presented. Especially the men enjoyed the dinner a lot after a long day on the road.

The Barracks 's response

Charmaine arrived late with a massive caravan which we were only informed of on the day of arrival, this being the 24th December at 13:30pm. To park this huge caravan proved very stressful for both them and ourselves as there was very little give of take on either side of the entrance. Charmaine did mention that "she should have checked this before booking". If they had informed us prior to them confirming the booking we would have advised them that we are unable to assist with parking for a caravan, as we have got long narrow drive ways on either side of the main building with no turning room or room for error.

They were also leaving at 04:00am on the 25 December which was also only communicated to us upon arrival at 08:30pm. We do not discount forfeited breakfast and it was too late to prepare a "breakfast pack" for them on the road. If we were informed prior to their arrival i.e. earlier in the day we would have been able to assist.

We welcomed them with sherries and gave them a complimentary bottle of wine and water in their unit.

Lastly - fortunately we all have different scales of measuring value. There is a saying in life that you can please most people most of the time, but not all of the people all of the time. We (being Annalie & Mike - Owners of The Barracks) tried very hard, but to no avail.

Wonderful place to stop with lovely service.

Lovely, friendly place to stop with a wonderful dinner when we arrived. Family unit was perfect with the dog and small children because everyone could stretch their legs in the courtyard. Will definitely come again. Thank you very much.

Bevredigend.

The Barracks is 'n gemaklike oornagstasie op die langpad tussen Johannesburg en die goeie ou Kaap. Miskien moet die gasheer en dame net let dat alle kliënte "ewe gewig dra". Het so bietjie gevoel dat die ouer garde wat oornag meer aandag op gemak en behoeftes kry (miskien meer gereelde gaste). Maar sal definitief The Barracks aanbeveel vir enige een, maar persoonlik self sal ek 'n meer alle-gaste-welkom-nessie soek as ons weer so ver reis.

Satisfactory.

The Barracks is a convenient overnight stay on the long road between Johannesburg and the good old Cape. Maybe the host and hostess should note that all guests "carry the same weight". Felt a bit as though the older guests enjoyed more attention to their comfort and needs (maybe they are regular guests). But will definitely recommend The Barracks to anyone, but personally when we travel this far again I would look for a more everyone-welcome-nest.

Dit was silwerskoon, netjies, en die diens fantasties.

Van die oomblik van aankoms was ek en my suster met vriendelikheid ontvang. Annelie se kos was uitstekend, and haar man se gasvryheid was wonderlik.

It was spotless, neat and the service was fantastic.

From the minute we arrived my sister and I were met with friendliness. Annelie's food was delicious and her husband's hospitality was wonderful.

Warm en snoesig in die winter!

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang deur ons gasheer met 'n glasie sjerrie op ons stoep. Ons kamer was ruim en netjies. Die warmwatersakke was 'n welkome bederfie op 'n koue en nat dag! Lekker warm geslaap! Ontbyt was ingesluit, heerlik en meer as genoeg. Sal The Barracks definitief aanbeveel!

Warm and cuddly in winter!

We were very kindly received by our host with a glass of sherry on our porch. Our room was spacious and tidy. The hot water bags were a welcome treat on a cold and wet day! Nice warm sleep! Breakfast was included, delicious and more than enough. Would definitely recommend The Barracks!

Baie aangenaam, netjies en skoon.

Eienaar en sy vrou verwelkom jou met glasie port. Plek baie oud en geskiedkundig. Alles is netjies en skoon en gasvryheid van eienaar en sy vrou oorweldig jou. Die aandete wat sy voorgesit het was uit die boonste rakke. Die lamsvleis was so sag soos spons.

Skoon, effektiewe oornagverblyf, in 'n stil, veilige area met heerlike ontbyt.

Die kamers is ruim en skoon, volop warm water en lekker gemaklike beddens en beddegoed. Perfekte oornagstop en heerlike ontbyt. Onthou net om aandete te bespreek! Daar is restaurante in die omtrek ook.
