Glad nie tevrede.

Alhoewel die kostes aan die akkommodasie goedkoop was, sal ons glad nie die gastehuis aanbeveel nie. Dit is oud, die houtvloere val in, my kinders is met splinters huis toe. Die ligging is sleg - dis oorkant 'n groot swaarvoertuie oornagplek - dit het vir ons as gesin met twee kinders uiters onveilig gevoel.

Third Rock Guest House's response

Hi Carina,

Ons akkommodasie is ideaal vir gaste wat oornag en die gerief waar ons in die dorp geleë is.

Jy het eers jou balans betaal 3 weke later, na ons jou aanhoudend probeer kontak het in verband met die uitstaande gelde, mag dit moontlik die rede wees vir jou resensie.

Jy is reg dit is 'n ou huis en dit is presies wat op ons webblad staan. Dit is 'n huis wat dateer tot nog voor die Anglo-Boere oorlog waarop ek baie trots is en word daagliks skoon en instand gehou.

Ek, die eienaar, het persoonlik daardie nag tot 02h00, dit is hoelaat julle gesê het julle gaan vertrek, oor julle wag gehou soos wat ek julle vroeër die middag meegedeel het.

Third Rock Gastehuis.

Good value for money.

Third Rock is a lovely old house with a pretty garden, including an interesting labyrinth. The owners are helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. It is not luxurious, but it is clean, the bed is comfortable and has nice linen. As I had an hour or two to spare the owners showed me around Ventersburg which doesn't at first sight look like much, but is actually an interesting place. Only drawback is that there are no good restaurants in town, but that is not the fault of the owners. Otherwise, a good place to stop.

Was very clean. Maybe could provide some rusks and put some toiletspray in the bathrooms.

Skoon en netjies.

Was baie skoon. Kan dalk net beskuit neersit, en toiletsproei in die badkamers neersit.

Pragtige ou huis.

Mooi kamer met on-site badkamer, so ook Pragtige ou vensterrame en deure. Buite boma, lekker ouma se stoep. Doolhof vreeslik interessant, raaiselagtig en uniek. Eienaars baie aangename mense, behulpsaam, vriendelik en omgee mense.

Baie dankie, Erica vir die mooi woorde. Ons voel ryker daaraan toe nadat ons julle ontmoet het.

Teleurgesteld.

Ek het 'n bespreking gemaak vir die "Guest Room" soos na verwys op Third Rock se bladsy. Die foto's dui aan dat dit 'n kamer in die hoof huis is met 'n en-suite netjiese badkamer. Op ons aankoms by Third Rock was dit nie die geval nie, en ons is begelei na ons kamer wat 'n buitekamer op die perseel is. Die kamer self is semi-aanvaarbaar met netjiese beddegoed, alhoewel dit nie op die standaard van die hoofhuis se kamer is nie. Maar die badkamer laat weel te wense, aangesien die wasbak en stort (met vuil stort gordyn) van so aard is dat ons dit nie gebruik het nie en nie kon stort nadat ons die vorige aand by 'n troue was nie, en verder het die handdoeke hare op gehad. Uiters teleurgesteld in die standaard van Third Rock, en die misleidende foto's.

Interessante ervaring en 'n stukkie nostalgie.

Ventersburg was vir ons 'n bittersoet ervaring: Die pragtige ou plaashuis met ouma se stoep, gekombineer met 'n byderwetse labyribth om te stap, die pragtige 100 jaar oue NG Kerk, goed onderhou, maar met min mense en min geld wat oorbly op die dorp vandat die N1 verlê is. Ons het heerlik gebly in die goed toegeruste plaashuis met groot kamers en muskietnette oor elke bed. Indien jy sekuriteitsbewus is sal hierdie plek dalk nie vir jou werk nie, maar vir 'n unieke ervaring van "plattelandse Suid-Afrika" word hulle hoog aanbeveel.

The best place in Ventersburg!

The client service was exceptional, because the owners met us when we arrived and later also checked in on us, although we were only staying for one day. My whole family (6 of us) loved the house, the braai area, the stoep and the surrounds. Very tranquil. I will definitely return here.

Thank you for the kind words, Ivan. It was a pleasure having you and your family.

Safe place to take a rest on a long journey.

We only wanted a place to take a rest before hitting the road again, and Third Rock exceeded our expectations. We really felt safe and slept well. Thanks guys!

'n Veilige rusplekkie op die lang pad.

Ons het eintlik net 'n plekkie gesoek om te rus voor ons verder ry en Third Rock het ons verwagtinge oortref. Ons het regtig veilig gevoel en heerlik geslaap, baie dankie julle.

Baie aangenaam.

Ek het net die aand oorgeslaap op pad na Secunda. Keith en sy vrou was baie behulpsaam en Keith het my gehelp om my remligte reg te maak wat foutief was en dit in die donker en reën, want ek het later ingeboek as wat ek beplan het. Ek sal beslis weer daar oorslaap as die geleentheid hom voordoen. Fasiliteite is baie skoon en ek het rustig geslaap.

Not at all what I expected based on the pictures.

I booked a fully equipped self-catering room. Upon arrival I was shown to another property and given a room without fridge or aircon. I had to crawl around on the floor to find electric sockets. The TV didn't work. The kettle had to sit on the floor. The table was covered with plastic floor mats. The sink tap in the bathroom was completely loose. The coffee etc. was on an open plate on the table. The coffee bags were very old. When sleeping I had to lie in the centre of the bed to avoid falling off. All day long there was a noise that sounded like someone is banging against something. No information re places to eat was provided.

Glad nie wat ek verwag het n.a.v. foto's nie.

Ek het 'n selfsorgkamer met alle bykomstighede bespreek. By aankoms is ek na 'n ander erf toe geneem waar ek 'n kamer sonder yskas of lugversorging gegee is. Ek moes op die vloer rondkruip om by elektriese proppe uit te kom. TV het nie gewerk nie. Ketel moes op vloer staan. Plastiese vloermatte dien as tafelbedekking. Kraan by wasbak in badkamer is heeltemal los. Koffie ens is in oop bordjie op tafel. Koffiesakkie baie oud. Om te slaap, moes ek in die middel van die bed lê om te verhoed dat ek afval. Daar was heelnag 'n geluid soos iemand wat teen iets kap. Geen inligting m.b.t. eetplekke ens is gegee nie.

Hi Serena,
Ek is baie jammer oor die ongerief wat jy ervaar het. Omdat ons vol was het ek besluit om jou by n ander gastehuis te plaas.
Dit was 'n fout waarvoor ek bitter jammer is.
Ek sal jou geld terug betaal. Stuur jou asb besonderhede.
Ek is opreg jammer.
Groete,
Keith

Comfortable.

The service was excellent but unfortunately it's close to an overnight truck parking area which was very disturbing.

Gemaklik.

Die diens was baie goed, maar ongelukkig is dit baie naby 'n vragmotor oornag stilhou area, wat baie steurend deur die nag is.

Dit was baie lekker - work in progress - eienaar het nog baie idees met die plekkie.

Die plekkie is netjies en 'n goeie oornagplekkie. Die eienaar is baie huislik en hy het 'n passie vir sy omgewing. Hy het nog werk wat hy doen aan die plekkie maar dit steur nie. Sal vir seker weer daar gaan oorslaap.
