Baie dankie, elke keer, vir ‘n lafenis by Van Zylsvlei.

Die kamers is verwelkomend, die gasheer en gasvrou is vriendelik en behulpsaam. Alles wat ek nodig sou hê, is reeds daar. Dit is werklik soos ‘n oase in ‘n woestyn!

Ideaal geleë, oornag slaapplek langs die N1.

Hierdie oornag slaapplek is ontwikkel as 'n motel langs die ou N1. Die nuwe N1 is ook nog baie naby. Daar is gerieflike rondawels en kamers beskikbaar. Etes kan op aanvraag geniet word vir 'n ekstra bedrag. Aanbeveel vir 'n gerieflike halfweg oornagplek vir 'n billike bedrag en gerieflike beddens.

Dis 'n baie netjiese en aangename oornagstop, rustig en kamers op standaard.

Die mense is baie pragtige persone en gaste word na gekyk, baie welkom gevoel. Kos was regtig baie aangenaam en als was bekostigbaar. Kroeg se sitarea kan dalk bietjie meer gemakliker wees sou jy daar wil sit en rustig ontspan en sport kyk, maar aanbeveling van ons kant. Dan weer is dit 'n baie interessante kroeg en word na jou omgesien wanneer jy gebruik maak daarvan. Die enigste negatiewe ding is die swembad, is vuil, daar is twee pragtige honde op erf en hulle swem saam en hulle hare is hele swembad vol, afgesien van hare in swembad is die swembad nog vuil, en as jy wil afkoel en langs swembad ontspan sal dit nie aangeraai word nie. Ons is hondemense en selfs vir ons was dit te veel. Dan die heining om die erf is verwaarloos en laat veiligheid in gedrang voel. Maar ons het baie lekker geslaap en oornag en kamers is presies wat verwag word. Die atmosfeer is kalm en rustig.

False advertising.

A tiny room with one double and one single bed crammed into a tiny space so that you had to climb over the beds to get to the one side. Thank goodness we were not three adult males who would have been expected to share a bed! No shampoo or conditioner provided. Advertised as providing Wi-Fi - what they don’t mentioned is the Wi-Fi is only accessible in the main house and not in the rooms. Advertising DStv but it is only OpenView. Very limited channels. I will not be going there again!

Best resting place between Pretoria and the Cape.

Very neat and safe accommodation! We regularly sleep over at Van Zylsvlei with our 2 Spaniels when we travel between Pretoria and the Cape. Apartments are excellent and owners very friendly! With the 2 most beautiful Boerboels watching outside your door during the night, you are definitely safe! Restaurant serves delicious food, would definitely recommend Van Zylsvlei!

Met die 2 mooiste Boerboele wat deur die nag buite jou deur waak, is jy beslis baie veilig!! Restaurant bedien heerlike kos, sal Van Zylsvlei verseker aanbeveel!

Word verkeerd geadverteer, nie B&B nie, moet wees oornagverblyf - vir ontbyt moet ekstra betaal word, R78 p.p.

Hoewel skoon geriewe, is ontbyt teen R880 per nag nie ingesluit nie. Die rondawel is uiters beknop, geen plek vir tasse of beweeg nie, nog minder om klere vir volgende dag uit te hang. Die badkamer het nie plek om handdoek op te hang nie, twee hakies wat wel daar is, is of handdoek of klere. Om iewers te sit, is die keuse of die bed of buite op draadstoele. Ons het vir 'n maand lank in die Kaap getoer en het die akkommodasie teleurstellend gevind vir die prys.

Van Zylsvlei B&B Karoo Guest Farm's response

Goeie dag Henning,

Baie dankie vir u terugvoer. Ek is jammer dat u die akkommodasie nie voldoende gevind het nie.

By u bespreking word aangedui dat ontbyt nie ingesluit is nie. Te veel mense wil vroeg ry dan voel hulle hulle betaal vir iets wat hulle nie wil gebruik nie.

Ons sal aandag gee aan hangplek, maar hou asb. in gedagte dat die meeste mense net oornag en dus nie baie bagasie het nie.

Ek neem alles in ag wat u genoem het en sal probeer verbeter waar dit moontlik is.

Mooi dag,
Van Zylsvlei B&B

Erg ongemaklik geslaap. Ete ook nie baie goed nie. Nie weer nie.

Ons het in rondawel geslaap. Indien jy nie met lugversorging klaarkom nie, moet jy glad nie in die rondawels oorbly nie. Weet nie hoe is ander fasiliteite nie. Daar is geen kruisventilasie in die vertrek nie. As dit warm is, moet jy lugversorging gebruik, anders gaan jy vergaan van hitte en benoudheid. O ja, en die matras is so hol geslaap, dit moes al lank terug vervang gewees het. Ons verstaan kos kan 'n probleem wees, maar om vleis voor te sit wat opgewarm voorkom en al effe droog is, is nie aanvaarbaar nie. Doen dan eerder net eenvoudige disse wat vars gemaak kan word. Vir die pryse wat betaal word vir verblyf en kos verwag jy beter. Sal nie weer hier oorbly nie. Terrein is heeltemal oop met geen toegangsbeheer nie.

Van Zylsvlei B&B Karoo Guest Farm's response

Beste At,

Baie dankie vir die terugvoering. Ek is regtig jammer dat dit jou ervaring by ons was.

Die rondawels is nog in die ou era gebou en vir daardie rede het ons die lugversorger geinstalleer om dit meer gerieflik te maak.

Ek kan u verseker dat die vleis wat ons voorsit nie opgewarmde vleis is nie. Dit word wel op 'n 'griller' gaargemaak, wat dit moontlik te droog na u smaak gebraai het. Ek is jammer vir enige ongelukkigheid met die kos wat voorgesit is.

Van Zylsvlei is 70 jaar oud in die 70 jaar van sy bestaan, was daar nog geen voorval van enige aard nie. Dit is 'n plaas en toegansbeheer is oneffektief. Ons as permanente inwoners weet dit is regtig baie veilig hier en daarom adverteer ons dit ook so.

Groete,
Annalie

So-so.

Redelik basies - maar wat verwag teen die prys. Goeie ontvangs - maar teleurgesteld omdat "Frikkie" nie tevrede was met no. 17 en my rondawel no. 10 wou annekseer nie en die ontvangsdame goedsmoes sonder om dit my uit te klaar sonder meer aan "Frikkie" oorhandig het - ek dink dit was swak. Sy kon my in die saak geken het. Sal nie weer daar slaap nie - overrated plek.

Die verblyf was voldoende in terme van bed en bad, maar weens ons ondervinding sal ons nie weer terug keer nie.

Ek, my man en my ma sou aanvanklik by Van Zylsvlei oornag om die reis terug van die Wes-Kaap na Gauteng te breek. Na ons ons bespreking gemaak het, het my suster, haar man en hulle 2-jarige seuntjie ook vir drie mense bespreek om dieselfde aand as ons te oornag op pad sodat ons saam die reis kon aanpak. Met die aankoms het die eienaars die besprekings verwar en 'n kamer vir ons gegee met 'n dubbelbed en twee enkelbeddens (in stede van een enkelbed vir my ma) en vir my suster se gesin slegs 'n enkelbed. Toe ons dit bevraagteken, is vir my swaer gesê dat hy kry waarvoor hy betaal, al het hy vir drie mense bespreek. Gelukkig was ons saam en kon my ma met hulle 'n kamer deel en ek en my man slaap toe in die kamer met die dubbelbed. Die kamer het egter 'n oorweldigende reuk van motballe gehad wat uiters onaangenaam was. Toe die eienaar die fout agterkom, is ons geskakel in ons kamer om te vra waarom ons nie die fout uitgelig het nie, wat ons wel gedoen het, maar die man het dit van die hand gewys en daarom het ons 'n plan gemaak onder mekaar om 'n bed vir elke gas te verseker. Wat egter die verblyf by Van Zylsvlei onaangenaam gemaak het, is die feit dat my suster se seuntjie deur een van die honde gebyt is. Daar is baie honde op die perseel wat meerendeels baie oulik en vriendelik is. My familie is mal oor diere en my susterskind is geen uitsondering. Die eienaar se man wat saam met ons kamer toe gestap het, het gesien hoe my kleinneef by die worshond gaan kniel en het versuim om te waarsku dat die hond aggressief is. Toe my klein neef die hondjie vryf (en hy ken van saggies vat en het baie sag aan die hondjie gevat), toe byt die hond hom. Toe die man van Van Zylsvlei dit opmerk, was sy reaksie bloot "O ja, julle kan aan enige van die honde vat, behalwe daardie een." Geen verskoning nieteenstaande my kleinneef se histeriese huil. Ook geen kennisgewing op by die plek om te waarsku dat mens nie aan die hond moet vat nie. Ons sal klaarblyklik nie terug wees nie.

Rustig en lekker!

Die mense is vriendelik en warm. Ons is hanteer soos ou vriende en met 'n ope hart verwelkom. Die huisies is pragtig, netjies en gemaklik. Dit is lekker dat die eiendom ook bietjie uit die stad is. Glad nie te ver nie, maar net ver genoeg dat dit steeds gesien kan word as 'n vakansie op sy eie. Hierdie is die beste plek om oor te slaap in Colesberg.

Skoon, gerieflik, vriendelik, smaaklike maaltye. Wat meer wil 'n mens hê?

Soos met ons vorige oornagverblyf was van Zylsvlei in die kol. Dit was 'n aangename verrassing dat daar nou 'n klein yskassie in die kamer is om ons drankies vir die volgende dag se ry koel te hou. Ons reis met 2 yorkies en vind hulle die perfekte oornag verblyf. Dis stil en rustig, weg van die besige N1. Heerlike skaapkerrie vir aandete geniet en smaaklike ontbyt die volgende oggend, alles teen billike tariewe. Ons het reeds verblyf vir ons terugrit bespreek.

Bietjie duur vir die gebrek aan gemak.

Was nogal teleurgesteld omdat die eenheid waarin ek gebly het (nr 17) nie dig genoeg toemaak nie - daar was heelnag 'n yskoue lug wat in die plek geroer het, glad nie wat ek verwag het teen R500 vir 'n enkele persoon per nag nie.

Nice, convenient with a good location, away from the noise of the N1 route.

It was enjoyable and perfect for a stopover. Had all the necessities. The following 2 aspects could be improved: 1. The swimming pool was dirty 2. The place isn't pet friendly towards all types of dogs. They have dogs on the farm and we bought our dog, but our dog doesn't really socialise well with other dogs. We had some difficulty with this as the other friendly dogs came to us looking for attention. Perhaps they should set up an area for dogs who aren't that keen to socialize with other dogs.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Lekker en gerieflik en goed geleë, weg van die geraas van die N1 roete af.

Dit was baie lekker en is goed vir oorslaap, dit is al wat ons nodig het. Die volgende twee aspekte kan dalk aandag kry: 1. Die swembad was nie skoon nie. 2. Dit is nie troeteldiervriendelik t.o.v. alle tipe honde nie. Daar is honde op die plaas en ons het 'n hond wat nie ander honde "verdra" nie wat dit moeilik vir ons gemaak het, aangesien hulle honde aandag by ons soek (vriendelike honde). Hulle moet dalk kyk na 'n area wanneer daar honde kom wat nie gewoond is aan ander honde wat toe is en weg van hulle honde.

Mooi ligging maar ek was bang.

Ek was bang in die area omrede daar nie 'n behoorlike heining om die plek is nie. En die ontbytfooi is verskriklik duur. R70 pp. Ek wou net pap geëet het.

Hallo Ingrid
Dankie vir jou insette. Daar sal nie akkommodasie al vir 70 jaar aangebied word as dit onveilig is hier nie. Dit is regtig baie veilig. R 70.00 vir ontbyt is ons standaard fooi vir ;'n volledige Engelse ontbyt. Vrugte en yoghurt, graanvlokkies en 'n bord warm kos. Ek is nie bewus van enige plek waar jy net vir 'n bordjie pap kan betaal nie.

Excellent!

Now that was the right start to a holiday! To be able to sit outside on New Year's Eve was the start of the best holiday ever. Very friendly reception, they even offered to make us dinner even though the staff were off duty for the evening. Friendly dogs (that are never bothersome), greet you when you enter the gate and even jump into the pool with you if you let them. The pet lamb was undoubtedly my favourite. The rondawels are spotless and I will recommend Van Zylsvlei anytime. It will definitely be our overnight stop on future travels. 10 out of 10!

Uitstekend!

Dit was nou die regte begin vir 'n vakansie! Om oujaarsaand buite onder die sterre te kon sit, was die beste begin van 'n vakansie ooit. Baie vriendelike ontvangs, hulle het selfs aangebied om vir ons aandete te maak al was al die personeel af vir die aand. Vriendelike honde (wat nooit lastig is nie), groet jou as jy by die hek inkom en spring selfs saam in die swembad as jy hulle toelaat. Die hanslammetjie was ongetwyfeld my gunsteling. Die rondawels is silwerskoon en ek sal Van Zylsvlei enige tyd aanbeveel. Dit gaan beslis ons oornagpunt wees vir al ons toekomstige reise. 10/10!

It felt as if I was sleeping at a friend's house on our wat to our holiday destination.

We immediately felt at home after a long day in the car. The area is beautiful and the delicious food was of the best. The breakfast was delicious and after a nice chat about Colesberg we said our goodbyes and travelled further. I would recommend it to anyone.

We have been using Van Zylsvlei for some 7 years now as our half way stop on our biking trips. Best place to unwind and relax for the next days ride.

Oasis with cordiality.

After a long day on the road, we were able to cool off in a swimming pool. The bathroom is modern with a shower. Enjoyed a delicious meal and watched a child friendly movie along with our kids. Pet friendly resort where city and town lambs grace together.

'n Oase met hartlikheid.

Na 'n dag se lang reis kon ons in 'n swembad afkoel, in moderne badkamers, stort , 'n heerlike ete geniet en 'n kindervriendelike fliek saam met ons kinders geniet. Hierdie is 'n troeteldiervriendelike rusoord waar selfs plaas en dorpslammetjies heerlik saamwei.

Baie skoon, netjies en vriendelike mense. Baie lekker gerus.

Dit was baie lekker met die bad in die huisie, met 'n 4-jarige is 'n stort altyd moeilik. Groot en gerieflike kamer. Die eienaars is baie gasvry.

Will definitely be returning.

It was a nice stopover place. Room was spotless. Hostess very, very friendly. In future I will always stopover at Van Zylsvlei B&B and Guest Farm.

Very friendly and comfortable.

One is always sceptical about what you'll get when you book over the internet, so we were pleasantly surprised with Vanzylsvlei. From the moment you enter this place, there is a friendly atmosphere and pretty gardens. There is loads of space for the kids and dogs to play and run around safely. Our room was comfortable with all the facilities one could ask for and, if you'd like a meal, there is a variety of delicious meals to choose from. We were so impressed and would definitely book here again.

Baie vriendelik en gemaklik.

'n Mens is altyd maar skepties oor wat jy gaan aantref as jy net oor die internet verblyf bespreek, so ons was aangenaam verras met Vanzylsvlei. Vandat jy inry het die plek 'n vriendelike atmosfeer en is daar mooi tuine. Daar is lekker baie plek waar die kinders en honde veilig kan rond hardloop en speel. Ons kamer was gemaklik met al die geriewe waarvoor mens kan vra en as jy wil eet is daar 'n verskeidenheid lekker kos om van te kies. Ons was heel in ons skik en sal verseker weer hier oorslaap.

Meet as strangers, part as friends!

The two of us, our big dog and our fully packed vehicles were all warmly welcomed on the peaceful green oasis after a long ride. A lovely dinner, nice warm bath and comfortable bed made sure of a good night's rest. After another delicious breakfast we greeted like old friends, with courage for another stretch. We won't stay over at another place than Van Zylsvlei ever again - thank you Annalie!

Ontmoet as vreemdelinge, gaan as vriende uiteen!

Ons twee, ons groot hond en ons 2 volgepakte voertuie is almal warm verwelkom op die rustige groen oase na 'n lang rit. 'n Heerlike aandete, lekker warm bad en gemaklike bed het gesorg vir uitrus soos min. Na nog 'n smaaklike ontbyt het ons gegroet soos ou vriende, met moed vir die 2de skof. Ons sal nie weer op 'n ander plek oorbly as Van Zylsvlei nie - dankie Annalie!

Excellent service from Annalie.

I left Nelspruit at 12:00 and couldn't make the 21:00 check-in time, but Annalie contacted me on the way and assured me that it wouldn't be a problem and that she would open the rondawel so I could just step inside and leave the next day. Everything was in place as arranged. Will definitely book this place again. Clean and comfortable.

Uitstekende diens van Annalie ontvang.

Ek het na 12h00 uit Nelspruit vertrek en kon nie die spertyd van 21h00 haal nie, maar Annalie het my op die pad gekontak en verseker dat dit nie `n probleem is nie en sy die rondawel se deur sou oopgesluit hou sodat ek wanneer ek arriveer net kan instap en die rondawel net weer kan toe trek wanneer ek die volgende dag vertrek. Alles was in plek soos gereel. Sal beslis weer gebruik. Skoon en gerieflik.

Farm life.

It's a bit expensive for what you get, but it's clean, we liked the fact that it was out of the main town and got a farm-like feeling, very calming.

Enjoyed the Karoo environment and having a braai outside the apartment.

I made use of Van Zylsvlei B&B year ago and remembered it as a positive experience. That is why we came back.

Ons kon lekker buite die woon-eenheid braai en die Karoo-omgewing geniet.

Ek het jare terug ook van Van Zylsvlei B&B gebruik gemaak en kon dit onthou as 'n positiewe ervaring. Daarom het ons terug gekom.
