Rustige uitspan na 'n lang reis.

Die eenheid is mooi geleë met pragtige uitsig op dam (nes op die foto's). Skoon beddegoed, lekker geriewe en veilige parkering. Het voorheen al hier gebly, sal beslis weer kom. Dankie!

Dir enigste kritiek is die een toilet wat nie in 'n werkende toestand was nie. Dit wou voorkom of die bestuur daarvan bewus is?

Mooi uitsig, alles wat jy nodig het maar (No. 4) het probleme met klank wat tussen eenhede trek.

Tegnies niks om te fouteer nie behalwe dat dit geklink het of ons in die bure se sitkamer sit. Hoop dit was maar net 'n probleem met ons spesifieke eenheid (Woonstel 4).

Die uitsig oor die Gariep is onverbetenlik en ons was aangenaam verras met die kwaliteit koffie en koffiepres was ons toegelaat het om 'n ordentlike koppie koffie die volgende oggend te geniet. Ons het wegneem aandete bestel en dit was heerlik om vinnige, kwaliteit kos te kon geniet na 'n lang dag se ry. Ek sal beslis terug wees en beveel View Lodge aan.

Pragtige dam uitsig.

Die is so 'n pragtige en netjiese oorslaap bestemming tussen Pretoria en die Tuinroete. Die kamers is besonders netjies, het heerlike lugversorging en die pragtigste dam uitsig vanaf die kamer en stoep. Min wat mens die dam so vol sien, dit was nogal 'n uitsonderlike gesig. Dankie ook vir die heerlikste ontbyt teen baie billike tariewe. Sal beslis weer hier oorslaap!

It is such a beautiful and neat stopover destination between Pretoria and the Garden Route.

Behalwe vir krakerige enkelbedjies, kan ek in een woord opsom: perfek.

Uitstekende kliëntediens. Fantastiese hoofslaapkamer met fantastiese beddegoed. Mooiste uitsig met maan wat glinster op die water. Gasbraaier op die stoep is baie grieflik. Koffie en beskuit word voorsien.

Ontvangs was baie goed, ons het net daar oornag. Alles was netjies en skoon, sal weer daar oornag.

Oulike oornaggeriewe, die enigste klagte is dat die TV hopeloos te hoog geinstalleer is. Mens kan nie ontspan na 'n lang reis nie, want die een bank se kussings is klip hard en die kussings op die bank is al so plat gesit voor om die hoë TV raak te sien dat mens die hele tyd afgly. Die ander geriewe was baie goed.

Reception was very good, we just spent the night there. Everything was neat and clean, would stay there again.

Nice overnight facilities, the only complaint is that the TV is hopelessly installed too high. You can't relax after a long journey, because the cushions on one sofa are rock hard and the cushions on the sofa are set so flat in front of you to see the tall TV that you keep sliding down. The other facilities were very good.

Pictures vs. size of unit and structure of rooms is deceiving.

We woke up to no water when we needed to depart and shower for the rest of our journey. The size of the patio was tiny, the "2nd bedroom" was in the open plan kitchen. We felt it was not value for money.

Ruim, skoon en gerieflike verblyf by Gariepdam.

Ruim, skoon netjies verblyf in groot woonstel wat 4 persone slaap. Alle kombuisgeriewe beskikbaar vir selfsorg. Goeie uitsig oor die dam en baie naby aan die damwal. Dorpie self is egter treurig en 'n teken van die ekonomiese verval van ons platteland.

Vriendelike ontvangs, netjies met lugversorging in elke kamer!

View Lodge staan letterlik en visies uit in die area. Die ontvangs was gemaklik en ons was in die kamers in 'n japtrap. Met lugversorging in elke kamer, is View Lodge gemaklik in die warmste somerdae. Met opsies vir braai by die twee swembaddens of 'n gasbraai op die balkon, was dit vir ons 'n aangename verblyf vir die een aand.

With air conditioning in every room, View Lodge is comfortable on the hottest summer days. With options for braai by the two swimming pools or a gas braai on the balcony, it was a pleasant stay for us for the one night.

Teleurgesteld in die fasiliteite wat die sogenaamde luukse eenheid bied.

Die tarief wat gehef word vir die fasiliteite wat die luukse eenheid bied, is myns insiens buitensporig hoog. Eenheid 6 is taamlik versteek. Voeg daarby die uiters klein badkamertjie, veral die stort, dan skep dit die indruk dat die totale fasiliteit die resultaat is van die omskepping van 'n stoorkamertjie.

Disappointed in the facilities offered by the so called luxury unit.

The rate charged for the facilities offered by the luxury unit is exorbitant in my opinion. Unit 6 is quite hidden. Add to that the extremely small bathroom, especially the shower, then it creates the impression that the entire facility is the result of the conversion of a storage room.

Ai Bert,
Gelukkig is jy die eerste persoon met sulke negatiewe kommetaar van 'n omskepte "stoorkamertjie". Die lewe is maar so - jy kan nie almal gelukkig hou nie. Gelukkig is daar gaste wat alles waardeer wat opmaak vir sulke neerhalende kommetaar soos van jou af ontvang.

Nommer pas akkommodasie vir ons twee en ouma wat ons vergesel het. Kamers en kuierarea op twee vlakke was ideaal

Met aankoms verwelkom en alles deurgegee. Baie geskikte stop tussen Kaap en Gauteng en het gewoonlik die hotel gebruik maar die sal ons nuwe bestemming wees. Al is daar een badkamer, maak die tweede toilet alles makliker. Moes ongelukkig die ontbyt mis maar het baie lekker geruik toe ons ry.

Even though there is one bathroom, the second toilet makes everything easier. Unfortunately had to miss the breakfast but smelled very nice when we drove.

Die slegste ervaring wat ons nog ooit by enige verblyf instansie gehad het in die laaste 5 jaar.

Ons het betaal vir die "Luxury" suite. Die toilet het nie gewerk nie, en ons het dit aangemeld. Ene Jeff het probeer om dit reg te maak. Toe ons weer die toilet wou gebruik besef ons dit werk nog steeds nie. Ons het dit weer aangemeld maar hierdie keer het Jeff gesê hy kan nie help nie want hy is nie by die perseel nie. Dit was omtrent 8 uur op 'n Saterdag aand. Hy het nie aangebied om 'n plan te maak om te verseker dat ons 'n werkende toilet het nie. Ons het ook bespreek vir ontbyt by Jeff, omtrent 'n uur na ons aankoms het hy weer kom vra of ons ontbyt wil hê, want volgens hom kon hy kon nie onthou of ons bespreek het nie. View Lodge en Jeff se diens was ongelooflik swak en in my opinie nie een sent werd van die geld wat ons betaal het nie. Hulle behoort ons geld terug te betaal. Ons sal nooit weer daar bly nie.

The worst experience we have ever had, at any place in the past 5 years.

We paid for the "Luxury" suite. The toilet didn't work, and we reported it. Jeff was trying to fix it. When we tried to use the toilet again, we still realised it wasn't working. We reported it again but this time Jeff said he couldn't help because he wasn't on the premises. It was about 8 o'clock on a Saturday night. He did not offer to make a plan to ensure that we had a working toilet. We also booked for breakfast with Jeff, about an hour after our arrival he came again to ask if we would like breakfast, because he said he could not remember if we had booked. View Lodge and Jeff's service was incredibly poor and in my opinion not worth a cent of the money we paid. They should repay our money. We will never stay there again.

Gelukkig is positiewe terugvoering verreweg die meeste wat View Lodge ontvang. Ons neem negatiewe terugvoering wel ter harte en kyk waar ons kan verbeter. Nadat die toilet die eertse keer rapporteer is,het Jeff afgegaan het hy gevind dat die waterbak deksel verwyder is en dat die sisteem uitgehak was. Reggemaak en 'n paar maal getoets voor julle en dit in werkende orde gevind. Hy was wel uit op 'n plaas toe julle weer gebel het en het verskoning gevra dat hy nie nou kan terugkeer Lodge toe nie.
Die eenheid was elke aand daarna bespreek en niemand het melding gemaak dat die toilet nie werk nie.

Wonderlike oornagplek as jy op reis is.

View Lodge is nie 'n plek waar jy langer as een nag wil bly nie veral nie as jy in die hotel tipe kamer eenhede is nie. Die eenheid bied egter alles wat jy nodig sal hê vir een aand. Die stort binne in die slaapkamer van hoteltipe-eenheid is ietwat van 'n ongerief, maar is nie 'n groot probleem as jy vir slegs een aand oorslaap nie.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Great place to stay if you are traveling.

View Lodge is not a place where you want to stay more than one night especially if you are in the hotel type room units. However, the unit offers everything you will need for one night. The shower inside the bedroom of hotel type unit is a bit of an inconvenience, but is not a big problem if you are only staying for one night.

View Lodge 's response

Trevor,
Dankie vir die positiewe terugvoering. Ons het verskeie tipe eenhede beskikbaar om aan gaste se behoeftes te voldoen. Jou keuse was dan ongelukkig een van die standard eenhede. Die tipe standard eenhede is baie gewild onder gaste wat slegs net wil oornag. Die probleem wat ons al daarmee ondervind het, is dat gaste, sonder om 2 keer te dink, die goedkoopste tipe eenheid bespreek en dan is daar somtyds 'n dispuut daaroor. Soos jy gemeld het oor die stort, baie persone hou daarvan en ander nie. Daar is wel 'n gordyn wat toegetrek kan word wanneer 'n persoon meer privaatheid verkies terwyl die ander persoon rustig oor die dam kan uitkyk.

Ligging fantasties! Baie vriendelike hulpvaardige eienaar! Baie gerieflike kamer met alles wat jy benodig.

Ons het wel net een nag oorgeslaap, maar sou graag langer wou bly. Skoon, gerieflike kamer, stil met 'n pragtige swembad 'n paar tree van jou deur af! Sekuriteit baie goed. Ons het gehou van die idee dat jou motor baie naby die kamer was en ook veilig binne die sekuriteitsheining. Baie dankie aan die eienaar! Julle het ons baie welkom laat voel en die pragtige gerieflike kamer met skoon wit beddegoed, alles modern en goed beplan het geen tekortkominge gehad nie! Ons het heerlik gekuier. Dit was net te kort! Sal definitief weer in die toekoms daar wil oorbly!

We only stayed one night, but would have liked to stay longer. Clean, comfortable room, quiet with a beautiful pool a few steps from your door! Security very good. We liked the idea that your car was very close to the room and also safe inside the security fence. Many thanks to the owner! You made us feel very welcome and the beautiful comfortable room with clean white bedding, everything modern and well planned had no shortcomings! We had a great time. It was just too short! Will definitely want to stay there again in the future!

Teleurstellend.

Nadat ons 'n paar aande tevore by A'damsview Gastehuis gebly het in Gariep, was ons baie teleurgesteld in View Lodge. Die kamer was wel skoon en netjies, maar uiters beknop. Die stort en wasbak is ingeprop in die kamer reg langs die bed sonder enige afskorting wat uiters ongerieflik is. Die stort het ook nie 'n stortkop gehad nie met die gevolg dat die water oral gespuit het. Vanweë die uitleg van kamers, was dit ook baie raserig en kon mens nie rustig slaap nie. Daar is ook slegs ongeveer 4 of 5 TV-kanale in totaal. Ons sal nie weer daar oornag as ons oorslaap in Gariep nie.

Disappointing.

Having stayed at A'damsview Guest House in Gariep a few nights before, we were very disappointed in View Lodge. The room was indeed clean and tidy, but extremely cramped. The shower and sink are plugged into the room right next to the bed without any partition which is extremely inconvenient. The shower also did not have a shower head with the result that the water sprayed everywhere. Because of the layout of rooms, it was also very noisy and one could not sleep peacefully. There are also only about 4 or 5 TV channels in total. We will not spend the night there again if we sleep over in Gariep.

Fanus,
Jammer oor jou slegte ervaring. Wil net onder jou aandag bring, die uitleg en foto's was tot jou beskikking. Die bespreking is deur jou in persoon gedoen, so jy het geweet wat jy bespreek, 'n standard oop-plan kamer met korrekte beskrywing.
Die stort het wel 'n waterbesparing kop en geen gas het die volgende dag so 'n probleem kom aanmeld nie, tot vandag toe nie.
As jy die DStv program gebruik het, sou jy sien daar is 32 kanale. Indien jy daardie betrokke dag die probleem kom aanmeld het, sou ons daar tot jou beskikking gewees het om te help.
Wat raserigheid aan betref, almal is in 'n vakansie stemming en indien ons 'n buitensporige geraas hoor, gaan ons altyd na die betrokke eenheid om te vra dat hulle moet sagter.
