Netjiese, mooi kamer.

Dit was 'n duur oorslaap vir 1 persoon. Geen yskas, mikrogolfoond of wifi nie. Verder is dit 'n pragtige plek met vriendelike eienaars.

Neat, nice room.

It was an expensive overnight stay for 1 person. No fridge, microwave or wifi. Furthermore, it is a beautiful place with friendly owners.

Kort 'n ernstige opgradering.

Kort ernstig nuwe handdoeke. Jy droog nog af dan skeur hy in stukke so oud is die handdoeke. Die kombuis kort 'n ernstige opgradering, die kaste val uitmekaar. Geen plan B vir tydelike lig met kragdeel in jou kamer nie. Dankie dat die kragopwekker aangeskakel word vir 'n uur met kragdeel.

Needs a serious upgrade.

Seriously in need of new towels. You still dry off, then he tears into pieces as old as the towels are. The kitchen needs a serious upgrade, the cupboards are falling apart. No plan B for temporary light with power share in your room. Thank you for turning on the generator for an hour with power sharing.

Baie mooi ligging. Kamer netjies.

Die teenwoordigheid van huisdiere in ontvangs en eetarea skep 'n swak indruk. Vir nie-rokers kan personeel se rookgewoontes 'n probleem wees, alhoewel die kamers baie skoon en rookvry is.

Very nice location. Room neat.

The presence of domestic animals in reception and dining area creates a poor impression. For non-smokers, staff smoking habits may be a problem, although the rooms are very clean and non-smoking.

Was onder die indruk dat 'n mens van oord by die see kan kom, wat nie moontlik was nie.

Jammer ons kon nie by die see uitkom nie. Uitsig is baie mooi. Geen Wi-Fi by die eenhede beskikbaa nier. Baie troeteldiervriendelik.

Was under the impression that one could get to the sea from the resort, which was not possible.

Sorry we couldn't get to the sea. View is very nice. No Wi-Fi available at the units. Very pet friendly.

Gastehuis okay, oggendete okay.

Die area is onveilig, met die dorp vuil en sypaadjies onbegaanbaar met vullis orals.

Guest house okay, breakfast okay.

The area is unsafe, with the town dirty and sidewalks impassable with garbage everywhere.

Not on standard!

I would not recommend anyone to visit Umzimvubu at all. What the photos on the website show is not what you receive at all. I am extremely disappointed and shocked.

Dit was netjies en geskik vir die een nag se verblyf wat ons nodig gehad het.

Ons het vir 10 dae langs die Wildekus getoer en in vergelyking met ander plekke is die plek nou nie juis veel anders of beter nie, maar die prys was die meeste van al ons verblyf. Die kamer was netjies en skoon, daar is 'n hoekbad met 'n handstort in die badkamer gewees - ek verkies 'n ordentlike stort. Daar is slegs een DStv kanaal beskikbaar - "Movies Action" - maar die sein is ook so swak dat mens in elk geval nie iets kon kyk nie. Ons kon ook nie gebruik maak van die Wi-Fi wat as deel van die pakket aangebied word nie aangesien die "telefoonlyne af was". 'n Klein yskassie in die kamer sal 'n groot aanwins wees, mens het altyd iets om koud te hou, veral as mens so reis tussen selfsorg en gastehuise/hotelle. Die ontbyt was aangenaam alhoewel my dogtertjie nie kos gekry het nie en ek nadat ons kos gekry het moes vra waar is hare. Die gastehuis het 'n goeie ligging, dit is baie mooi daar.

It was neat and suitable for the one night stay we needed.

We toured along the Wild Coast for 10 days and compared to other places the place is not much different or better, but the price was the most of all our stays. The room was neat and clean, there was a corner bath with a hand shower in the bathroom - I prefer a decent shower. There is only one DStv channel available - "Movies Action" - but the signal is also so weak that you couldn't watch anything anyway. We were also unable to use the Wi-Fi offered as part of the package as the "phone lines were down". A small fridge in the room would be a great asset, you always have something to keep cold, especially if you travel between self-catering and guesthouses/hotels. The breakfast was pleasant although my little girl didn't get food and I had to ask where hers was after we got food. The guest house has a good location, it is very beautiful there.

Baie aangenaam.

Ons is vriendelik ontvang deur gasvrye personeel. Al wat ons kan aanbeveel is 'n klein yskas in die vertrek. As reisigers het ons altyd iets wat koud gehou moet word. Verder was alles baie netjies. Die uitsig uit ons kamer was pragtig ons het dit geniet.

Very pleasant.

We received a warm welcome from hospitable staff. Only thing we could recommend is a small fridge in the room. All travellers have something that needs to be kept cold. Other than that everything was neat. The view from our room was beautiful and we enjoyed it.

Very friendly reception.

We had a very difficult drive from Still Bay to PE and requested Umzimvubu to shift our arrival date for one day. This was done without any difficulty and in a very friendly manner. We were greeted in a very friendly and efficient way and helped to our accommodation. The breakfast was delicious and the lady serving it very friendly and helpful in warning us about road works on the way home. All in all a very pleasant stay, thank you.

Netjies, opgeknapte kamer met vriendelike en effektiewe diens.

Ek ken nie Port St Johns goed genoeg om kommentaar te lewer op die ligging nie. Ons het slegs een nag in Port St Johns oornag en was heel beïndruk met die gastehuis. Dit het gelyk of ons kamer onlangs oorgedoen is. Was baie netjies, skoon en ruim. Daar is heelwat snaakse elemente wat teen die kus rondhang. So het nie veilig gevoel toe ons 'n ent gaan stap het nie.

Neat, renovated room with friendly and efficient service.

I don't know Port St Johns well enough to comment on the location. We only spent one night in Port St Johns and were very impressed with the guest house. Our room looked like it had been redone recently. Was very neat, clean and spacious. There are quite a few funny elements hanging around the coast. So didn't feel safe when we went for a long walk.
