Will never go back.

No hot water as the geyser is set to only come on very late the afternoon. After a long day of travel you want to shower. Here you have no hot water until about 7 at night. Hardly any lights so dark in the room. It is impossible to read at night.

Value for money, although facility has a few things needing attention.

Shower door was almost impossible to open without breaking something. Pool was murky and not inviting.

Beslis nie aanbeveelbaar indien jy jou rus nodig na 'n lang reis.

Die gastehuis is direk langs 'n sports bar, die musiek het gedreun tot vroeë oggend ure. Ander gaste wat daar ingeboek was het tuis gekom kort nadat die musiek bedaar het, en dadelik na die swembad beweeg, verder alkohol gebruik, hard gelag en gesels en rommel langs die swembad gestrooi. Ons kom die hele nag nie slaap nie. Verder was een van ons kamer se lugversorging buite werking, toe ek dit aanmeld, het die eienaar my mee gedeel dat hulle adverteer nie lugversorging nie, ek moet noem dat ek toe weer op die webtuiste gaan kyk het en wel die lugversorging gesien het. Die kragtoevoer is heeltemal onaanvaarbaar, mens kan net een elektriese item op 'n slag aanskakel, anders skop alles af. Ek sal nooit weer daar bespreek nie.

Definitely not recommendable if you need rest for a long trip.

The guesthouse is right next to a sports bar, the music was blaring until the early morning hours. Other guests that came home shortly after the music subsided, immediately moved to the pool, continued to drink, laugh loudly and chat and litter by the pool. We didn't get to sleep all night. Furthermore, one of our room's air conditioning units was out of order, when I reported it, the owner informed me that they did not advertise air-conditioning, I must mention that I then went back to the site and saw the air-conditioning mentioned. The power supply is completely unacceptable, you can switch on only one electrical appliance at a time, otherwise everything shuts off. I will never book there again.

Beslis nie vir ouer mense nie, die geraas in die omgewing was ondraaglik.

Ons het vroeg opgedaag en die jong man by ontvangs was gaaf genoeg om ons in te boek teen 12:45, wat voor inboektyd was. Die een kamer se lugversorging het nie gewerk nie. Toe ek dit rapporteer, het die eienares my meegedeel hulle adverteer nie lugversorging nie, maar dit sê wel so op die webtuiste. Die gastehuis is direk langs 'n sportkroeg. Daar was harde musiek Vrydag- en Saterdagnag tot in die vroeë oggendure. Saterdagoggend 05:05 is ons wakkergeraas deur 'n geselskap van 4 gaste wat in een kamer langs ons was. Hulle het geswem, ingespring en luidkeels gesels met mekaar. Sondagoggend was ons weereens kort na 5:00 wakker geraas deur harde musiek vanaf 'n onbekende oord. Die gastehuis is geleë langs hoofpad op pad na Mafikeng en die swaar voertuie loop onophoudelik daar verby. Oorkant die nasionale pad is daar 'n treinspoor waar gereeld treine loop. Beslis nie aanbeveelbaar as mens jou rus nodig het om 'n lang reis tussen SA en Botswana moet onderneem nie. Die personeel daar is baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Die gebou is 'n bietjie oud en vervalle, baie fixtures in die badkamer val af as mens daaraan raak. Die elektriese toevoer was ook nie op standaard, want as slegs die yskas aan is en mens skakel die ketel ook aan skop die ketel se skakelaar af.

Definitely not for older people, the noise in the area was unbearable.

We arrived early and the young man at reception was kind enough to check us in at 12:45, which was before check-in time. The one room's air conditioning did not work. When I reported it, the owner told me they don't advertise air conditioning, but it does say so on the website. The guest house is directly next to a sports bar. There was loud music Friday and Saturday night until the early hours of the morning. Saturday morning at 05:05 we were woken up by a group of 4 guests who were in one room next to us. They swam, jumped in and talked loudly to each other. On Sunday morning we were once again awoken shortly after 5:00 by loud music from an unknown place. The guest house is located next to the main road on the way to Mafikeng and the heavy vehicles pass by non-stop. Across the national road there is a railway track where trains run regularly. Definitely not recommended if you need your rest to undertake a long journey between SA and Botswana. The staff there are very friendly and helpful. The building is a bit old and dilapidated, many fixtures in the bathroom fall off when you touch them. The electrical supply was also not up to standard, because if only the fridge is on and you also switch on the boiler, the boiler's switch kicks off.

Foto's op webtuiste dui nie gehalte van akkommodasie aan nie.

Tuin is pragtig en goed versorg, maar wat werklike akkommodasie betref, baie teleurstellend. Tafellampe (3x) het nie een gewerk nie. Skuif toe meubels weg om te kyk of dit ingeprop/aangeskakel is. Kon toe sien dat die plek baie lanklaas behoorlik skoongemaak is. Die plek was vuil! Stof het agter meubels en onder bed dik gelê. Ligte het toe aangekom toe ons gekla het. Blykbaar probleem met muurproppe. Beligting is ontoereikend. Die oopplan-badkamer en toilet het ons nie aangestaan nie. Die toiletsitplek was ook gebreek (sitplek en ring). Die bestuurder/eienaar en vriende het tot sowat 02:00 lawaaierig gesit en kuier. In die straat af is die gedoef-doef van musiek in 'n kroeg gehoor (besef dat gastehuisbestuur waarskynlik geen beheer hieroor het nie). Die hele ervaring was grillerig. Kon nie wag om daar weg te kom nie. Aanwesige bestuur het ook geensins 'n poging aangewend om die volgende oggend kontak te maak om te hoor of daar enige probleme was tydens ons verblyf nie. Baie onaangename ondervinding.

Photos on website do not indicate quality of accommodation.

Garden is beautiful and well maintained, but in terms of actual accommodation, very disappointing. Table lamps (3x) none worked. Then move furniture away to check if it's plugged in/switched on. Could see then that the place had not been properly cleaned in a very long time. The place was dirty! Dust was thick behind furniture and under the bed. Lights then came on when we complained. Apparently problem with wall plugs. Lighting is inadequate. The open-plan bathroom and toilet did not appeal to us. The toilet seat was also broken (seat and ring). The manager/owner and friends sat and socialized noisily until about 2am. Down the street, the thud-thud of music was heard in a bar (realize guesthouse management probably has no control over this). The whole experience was creepy. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Present management also made no effort to contact us the next morning to find out if there were any problems during our stay. Very unpleasant experience.

Dit is 'n netjiese en baie oulike plekkie.

Ek sal enige tyd weer by Villa Finesse bespreek as ek in Swartruggens area kom. Dit is naby die dorp en op die hoofroete na Zeerust geleë. Van die kos kan ek niks sê nie want ons is die volgende dag vroeg uit en het nie van dit gebruik gemaak nie, maar ek glo dat dit ook van uitstekende gehalte is. Die diens met aankoms was vriendelik en warm. Dankie vir die nag se rus.

I will book with Villa Finesse again anytime if I come to Swartruggens area. It is located close to the town and on the main route to Zeerust. I can't say anything about the food because we left early the next day and didn't make use of it, but I believe that it is also of excellent quality. The service on arrival was friendly and warm. Thanks for the night's rest.

Baie bekostigbaar en goeie diens.

Ons het die verblyf regtig geniet en die diens was uitstekend, het baie tuis gevoel. Al punt wat wel aandag kan geniet, is om lugversorging te vervang met groter doeltreffender modelle. Ons kamer s'n het nie lekker gewerk nie. Verder geen probleme.

I would not recommend to someone who wants self catering, but one who wants B&B.

I was not happy with the fact that I requested self catering accomodation and only to find out its not. There was no kitchen and our food went off because we had nowhere to put it. They did not try hard enough to assist us with the food and as a result we threw away our food. I feel that we were misled into thinking we could cater ourselves

Lekker rustige verblyf. Ons is aangenaam verras deur die kwaliteit en rustigheid van die gastehuis. Die pragtige tuin was 'n bonus. Dit was vir ons die ideale stop tussen ons tuiste in die Vrystaat en Sun City, waar ons Skouspel gaan kyk het. Ons sal dit enige tyd aanbeveel.

Rustige aand om die vuur saam met goeie geselskap.

Ons het daarvan gehou om alleen gelos te word. Nadat ons betaal het, kon ons kom en gaan soos ons wou. Die mooi tuin en rustige kameratmosfeer het ons geniet. Daar was vroeer die middag lawaai van die 'bure' maar teen skemer was die lawaai oor en ons het 'n vuurtjie gemaak voor ons kamerdeur wat op die tuin uitloop. Ons het die privaatheid waardeer.

A really lovely place

I enjoyed the "homely" atmosphere of Villa Finesse. It's lovely and in a quaint location, perfect for getting away from the city life, and enjoying a small town atmosphere. I must also add that Jenny is a very good hostess, and the place is immaculate and has stunning décor.
