Waarde vir geld. Netjiese verblyf.

Ons het slegs oornag. De luxe kamer was gerieflik groot. Als was silwerskoon. Yskas was 'n groot bonus. Badkamer met 'n bad en stort was gerieflik.

Pleasant.

It was a business trip. Thorn tree's people were very friendly and willing to help us where they could. The manager lent us crockery for the period of our stay with them - they themselves washed the crockery for us and took it back to our room every day (even though it is a self-catering unit).

Nice and convenient.

The stay was nice. The only thing that they must improve on is the wifi reception in the room. We had to stay outside to get reception and that is not really needed anymore in today's times.

We booked for 2 people, but the room amenities were catering for 1 person. E.g : tea station had 1 tea cup, 1 glass, everything was for one person. The heater in the room was not working, the remotes where not working. Check out time is 10:00, but the housekeeper comes to knock as early as 08:00.

See stars.

Eenhede was nie gereed met aankoms, alhoewel ons na 15h00 daar aangekom het.

Ek was teleurgesteld aangesien ons 3 eenhede gehad het en ketels, lugreeling, yskaste het nie gewerk. Bedlampies sonder ligte (globes). TV's en lugreelings se remotes se batterye was pap. Daar was nie genoeg koppies en glase vir water in die kamers ons moes gevra het. Toe ons daar arriveer was dit asof hulle nie geweet het in watter eenhede ons moes ingaan. Ons was ook nie ingelig of daar WiFi is en wat die password is nie. Ek sal nie die lodge aanbeveel en sal ook nie weer daar oornag nie.

Units were not ready on arrival, although we got there after 15h00.

I was disappointed as we had 3 units and boilers, air conditioners, fridges did not work. Bedside lamps without lights (globes). The batteries of TVs and air conditioners' remotes were flat. There were not enough cups and glasses for water in the rooms we should have asked. When we got there it was like they didn't know which units we had to go into. We were also not informed if there is WiFi and what the password is. I would not recommend the lodge nor would I spend the night there again.

Netjies en naby besigheids-areas.

Onthou asb. dat jy alles moet reël 'n dag vooruit anders sal jy geen ontbyt of aandetes kry nie.

Neat and close to business areas.

Please remember that you have to arrange everything a day in advance otherwise you won't get any breakfast or dinners.

Lovely stay and very attentive host.

We arrived quite late and the host, Johnny, was very attentive and assisted us. We had a lovely breakfast there on Sunday morning - thanks Johnny.

Short trip to Pietermaritzburg for the Affies rugby game on Saturday.

It was a lovely place to stay and Johnny went out of his way to assist us. We had a scrumptious breakfast on Sunday morning before departing. Thanks Johnny, it was most enjoyable.

Nie die moeite werd nie, behalwe as dit 'n krisis is.

Toe ek my kasdeure oopmaak om klere op te hang kry ek 2 leë drank bottels in die kas. Geen melk vir die koffie nie tot ek my eie melk gaan koop het. Koffie beskikbaar goedkoopste en geen tee nie. Vensters is vuil - miskien kan 'n verskoning van die bouery op 'n heelwat laer terras geleë gegee word daarvoor maar die werkskaffery is binne wooneenhede en is nie grondwerke nie. Nie eers poging aangewend om dit skoon te maak nie. Die prop an die binnekant van die muur is vuil - ou vuil! Die badkamer matjie is erg uitgerafel - gee slegte indruk. Die skakelaar van my bedlampie het 'n kortsluiting gehad en is Maandag aan Johnnie gerapporteer maar niks gedoen om te herstel nie - moes die heeltyd dit wikkel om te laat werk. Johnnie is vriendelik en behulpsaam maar nee dankie - ek sal nie weer daar bly as ek dit kan help nie.

Not worth it unless it's a crisis.

When I opened my closet doors to hang clothes I found 2 empty liquor bottles in the closet. No milk for the coffee until I went to buy my own milk. Coffee available cheapest and no tea. Windows are dirty - perhaps an excuse can be given from the building being located on a much lower terrace but the work shed is within residential units and is not earthworks. Didn't even try to clean it. The plug on the inside of the wall is dirty - old dirty! The bathroom mat is badly frayed - gives a bad impression. The switch on my bedside lamp had a short circuit and was reported to Johnnie on Monday but nothing was done to fix it - had to keep wiggling it to get it to work. Johnnie is friendly and helpful but no thanks - I won't stay there again if I can help it.
