Rustigheid by The Knoll is wat mens nodig het na 'n dag se gewoel.

Ek het heerlik gebly - alles wat nodig was, is in die eenheid. Dit was veilig, rustig en skoon.

Tranquility at The Knoll is what one needs after a day's hustle and bustle.

I had a great stay - everything needed is in the unit. It was safe, quiet and clean.

Mooi in die natuur, maar die plek was glad nie die geld werd nie.

Kyk ons het al baie van verblyfplekke gebruik gemaak en nog nooit klagtes gehad nie, maar hierdie plek is die swakste wat ons ooit beleef het. In die eerste plek die gasheer is die onvriendelikste mens wat ek nog gesien het, met loadshedding is daar geen lamp of kers of enige iets nie. Ons het laat die aand ingekom en moes in die donker rondploeter toe bring die man so 'n klein liggie. Die koffie in die botteltjie is kliphard. Die hele plek ruik na katpiepie, toe kom ek agter dit is die kombers. Parkering van so aard dat my man sy bakkie gestamp het. Gas-geiser se water is vir 2 sekondes warm en dan yskoud, so ons het met koue water gestort. Dit het vir my gevoel asof ons daaronder in 'n gat gedruk is! Nee wat, foto's is seker 20 jaar terug geneem!

Beautiful in nature, but the place was not worth the money at all.

Look we have used many places to stay and never had any complaints but this place is the worst we have ever experienced. First of all the host is the most unfriendly person I have ever seen, with loadshedding there is no lamp or candle or anything. We came in late at night and had to trudge around in the dark until the man brought a small light. The coffee in the bottle is rock hard. The whole place smelled like cat pee, then I realized it was the blanket. Parking of such a nature that my husband bumped his bakkie. Gas geyser's water is hot for 2 seconds and then ice cold, so we showered with cold water. It felt to me like we were pushed into a hole underneath! No what, pictures were probably taken 20 years ago!

Pragtige plek. Stil en rustig. Wonderlike ontvangs deur eienaars.

Die plaas is ongelooflik mooi. Groen, groot bome gee 'n rustige atmosfeer. Die kamer is pragtig uiteengesit. Skoon en baie netjies. Ons het baie lekker daar gebly. Daar is die mooiste honde op die plaas.

Het nie dit verwag nie.

In die foto's lyk die plek bietjie anders. Hulle het ou foto's op en die lig in die badkamer werk nie. En die stortwater is baie koud of brand jou velle af en dit was nie 'n aangename ondervinding nie, verder was dit goed gewees.

In the photos the place looks a little different. They have old photos on them and the light in the bathroom doesn't work. And the shower water is very cold or burns your skin and it was not a pleasant experience, otherwise it was good.

We were a little disappointed that the coffee shop was closed for the Easter weekend. I would have loved been invited in the Historical Farm House. A little booklet to tell us about the farm would have been of value.

Teleurgesteld.

As een werker ons nie by die hek raakgesien het nie, sou ons lank gewag het om in te kom, want die oproep wat ons gemaak het is nie beantwoord nie. Met aankoms om 15:40 was die ontvangs gesluit en 'n ander persoon het die gasvrou gebel, wat beweer het sy weet nie van ons bespreking nie. (Sy het ook nooit haar verskyning gemaak nie.) Die yskas is buite werking en die toilet se lig werk nie. Die mat by die spieëlkas in die badkamer was nat. Gelukkig was die verslete handdoeke skoon en die beddens was skoon en netjies.

Translate to English.

Disappointed.

If one worker had not spotted us at the gate, we would have waited a long time to get in, because the call we made was not answered. On arrival at 15:40 the reception was closed and another person called the hostess, who claimed she did not know about our booking. (She never made her appearance either.) The fridge is out of order and the toilet light is not working. The carpet by the mirror cabinet in the bathroom was wet. Fortunately the worn towels were clean and the beds were clean and tidy.

It was tough to find in the Hilton mist. Please add GPS coordinates.

To get in, one must first phone them to open the gate. Getting out in the morning is problematic. I phoned the given number about 5 times before it opened. The room was great but the basin's cold water tap needs a new washer and the shower drain is inadequate, as the floor floods. Otherwise I enjoyed my stay.

Not the ideal accommodation.

I would not recommend this place when going on a trip. We found a huge spider in our room. There were random animals outside our room and at a certain time our lights just switched off and we couldn't get it back on. We had to work at night and there wasn't even a desk for us to work at and no WiFi was supplied. Will not recommend The Knoll to anyone and most certainly won't go back.

Good Day Quintus,

Thank you for your feedback, as we are able to improve our business though the feedback we receive from our customers.

With regards to the animal life you encountered. We are a Guest Farm in the country-side, we do try to maintain a balanced relationship with the natural environment that we are part of. With regards to the lights we apologize for the inconveniences caused, we try our best to react to the RSA electricity crisis. We will revise our power outage protocols so that future inconveniences are avoided.

Thank you for your feedback and we hope you give us another fair chance.

Kind regards,

Waarde vir geld en baie rustig.

Daar is boonop elke tweede week 'n vertoning van plaaslike kunstenaars wat gaste gratis kan bywoon. Heerlike bunny chow by die vertoning gekoop so aandete was uitgesorteer. Rustige area en pragtige tuin. Sal graag weer bespreek.

Hulle het nie geweet van my vooruitbetaalde bespreking nie.

Met ons aankoms daar is ons begroet met 'n verwarring soos wanneer gaste onverwags opdaag, wat presies die geval was. Klaarblyklik was ons bespreekte en betaalde kamer op daardie stadium reeds deur ander gaste betrek. Daar is inderhaas 'n plan gemaak om wel 'n kamer tot ons beskikking te stel, maar dit was nie waarvoor ek betaal het of na uitgesien het nie.

They didn't know about my prepaid reservation.

On our arrival there we were greeted with a confusion like when guests arrive unexpectedly, which was exactly the case. Apparently our booked and paid for room was already occupied by other guests at that point. A plan was hastily made to provide us with a room, but it was not what I had paid for or was looking forward to.

Veilig en skoon met asemrowende uitsig oor bos en perde kamp.

Was gelukkig om gehuis te wees in "Library" eenheid. Netjies, skoon en het wonderlike uitsig oor die bos en die perdekamp. My dogters het die perde ten volle geniet.

Worst experience I've ever had.

No reservation booked out on my arrival. My accommodation was arranged and paid a week before my arrival. Got booked in to the wrong room. Nikki then booked me in to the right room after a debate. She claims that the rooms are the same but I paid for the most expensive room that has wonderful views and a table where I can do my work. I had to wait for about a half an hour because not one of the two room I was booked into had sheets over the bed. When I finally got in bed that night I was surprised with a terrible smell. It seemed like the sheets that was made up for me was dirty and full of stains and smelled really bad. This guest house will never see me again and I will make a point of it to inform as many people as possible about this horrendous service I received. It's sad, because the property itself and the landscapes are absolutely beautiful. If only the service could have been on the same level.

Dear Conraad,
I am surprised at your comments, we had a discussion and a handshake to agree that we started off on the wrong foot by issuing you the incorrect room, after that you were moved immediately to the room you required, you mentioned that you had been travelling since 05:00 that morning, your check-in time was 17:30, and that you were over- tired. We shook hands and all seemed quite alright by the time I had made up your bed, clean toweling. I apologise for the detergent smell on your sheets. Thank you for your review and comments, they do assist us with our standards and our guests expectations.

Kind regards,
Niki

Dear David,

Thank you for your thoughtful insight, our backpacker's units are our budget accommodations, we do have suites available at higher rates, I hopefully with rectify the difference with our Travel Agents so that everyone is well aware of what they are paying for.

All the best and thank you for your review, all comments are taken seriously and we try to assist our guests and their experience at our destination.

Lots of rain, no television, roads are bad, facilities are very basic.

Can think of providing a sitting room in main house with books, games etc. for bad weather. Probably ideal for 'Backpackers'. The advertisements for accommodation are a bit misleading.

Perfekte plaasatmosfeer.

Verrassende platteland met lowergroen velde en perde wat deur die reën skoon gewas is wat ons met ligdag begroet voor ons venster. Perfekte oornag-akkommodasie. Dis 'n landelike atmosfeer te midde van 'n dolle gejaag van vakansiegangers, 2 kilometer daarvandaan. Baie vriendelike ontvangs. Uiterste gasvryheid. Ons sal weer en weer en weer daar wou oornag in die toekoms.

Perfect farm atmosphere.

Surprising countryside with lush green fields and horses washed clean by the rain that greets us with daylight in front of our window. Perfect overnight accommodation. It's a rural atmosphere in the middle of a mad rush of holidaymakers, 2 kilometers away. Very friendly reception. Extreme hospitality. We would like to stay there again and again and again in the future.
