Grootste "dud" in baie dudbesprekings.

Bedlampies werk nie, een het nie eers 'n gloeilamp ingehad nie. Uitgewasde, dun, harde handdoek, met kante wat uitrafel. Geen badmatjie. Geen hande handdoek. Matras plankdun met uitgewasde duvet. Geen mat.

Biggest "dud" in many dud discussions.

Bedside lamps not working, one didn't even have a bulb in it. Washed out, thin, hard towel, with edges fraying. No bath mat. No hand towel. Mattress board thin with washed duvet. No mat.

We are definitely going back sometime soon.

Breakfast is not available as stated on the website. I was visiting with my 2 teenagers. I would definitely recommend the accommodation. Great location, clean and quiet. Everything you need is close by.

Vir ons doeleinde was ons baie tevrede met die akkomodasie.

Ons het eers sowat 20:00 daar aangekom en die volgende oggend weer vroeg vertrek. Die kamer asook die badkamer was netjies en skoon. Die stoep was nie skoon nie, maar ons het dit ook nie gebruik nie. Ons het heel veilig gevoel.

For our purpose we were very satisfied with the accommodation.

We only got there around 20:00 and left early the next morning. The room as well as the bathroom were neat and clean. The porch was not clean, but we didn't use it either. We felt very safe.

Om enige sterre vir die plek te gee is te veel.

Swak diens, kamer was nie gereed nie en geen toiletpapier nie. Vuil en verwaarloos. Moet die plek nie eers oorweeg nie.

Teleurgesteld.

Glad nie soos die foto's op webblad nie. Aankoms het niemand op foonoproep gereageer om in te kom nie. Inganghekplanke deur termiete opgevreet en skep swak indruk. Die plek was uiters verwaarloos - tuin, sowel as kamers. Stukkende kaste, geen welkomkoffie- of tee-fasiliteite nie, geen wasbakprop in die kombuis nie, geen vadoek/e. Die yskasrekke is stukkend en die water drup gedurig op die vloer. Die kragproppe is baie skaars, die vloerplanke stukkend, die stoepmeubels is in 'n uiters swak kondisie en baie vuil.

Disappointed.

Not at all like the photos on web page. On arrival no one responded to phone call to come in. Entrance gate boards eaten by termites and create a poor impression. The place was extremely neglected - garden, as well as rooms. Broken cupboards, no welcome coffee or tea facilities, no sink stopper in the kitchen, no tea towel/s. The fridge shelves are broken and the water is constantly dripping on the floor. The power plugs are very rare, the floorboards are broken, the patio furniture is in extremely poor condition and very dirty.

The bedrooms were nice and clean but all kitchen appliances and utensils were very dirty. The ironing system is also not user friendly.

They need to buy new pots and throw away those filthy sticky ones, spoons, tee spoons etc. The garage must also be painted and tiled.

Beautiful area and safe, but disappointing.

Photos misleading. Very clean and staff very helpful, but definitely needs a woman's touch. Also, no breakfast is available, even though advertised. Furniture and bedding are old and tatty and no cutlery or crockery, 2 cups, glasses and 1 wine glass. Had to go ask for extras. Because of helpful staff and cleanliness, I can't give them a bad score. Just need a bit of an upgrade.

The place needs proper maintenance and cleaning.

The place needs painting, new floors, plumbing maintenance, couches to be repaired, not enough uniform cutlery, shortage of glasses, fridge freezes food, cupboards to be repaired. A second person is needed to help spring clean the house every day so it is clean n fresh for guests. The garden and pool were not well maintained. I wouldn't go back nor recommend the place to anyone in my circles.

Good price but does not live up to expectation created with advertisement.

Price is good, but description on internet and photos not accurate. Our room was much smaller than expected and the view from the window and balcony is not as it appears. Other problems: there was a cigarette butt next to microwave in room. The spare duvet/blanket was crumpled in the cupboard and not folded properly. There was also an old pillow, not in a scrap, in the closet. The bathroom has no place to put clothes, or hooks to hang clothes. There was also no door, or even curtain for the shower. There was no place to put luggage, only in cupboard. Also only one table and lamp for double bed. The TV was not working on arrival. Communication with hosts via email went unanswered ahead of time. Communication via WhatsApp was slow but ok. On the plus side: the WiFi worked well and the host was friendly.

Just decent nothing to brag about. The furniture was old not mentioning the fridges. We even had spoilt meat during our stay because non of the fridges were cold enough. A serious revamp of the place is needed.

Definately a place to stay.

I would recommend this accommodation and will stay here again. After having to change accommodation when I arrived in Durban, they were very helpful in assisting me. I was greeted by a friendly face (Jared the manager), who helped me with my check-in and was always available. The rooms are neat and tidy with the amenities you need, just like in the pictures. The staff is extremely accommodating and very friendly. It is in a quiet and secure area. It is almost like a home away from home.

Neat and tidy. Premises requires some attention. Lack of solutions towards loadshedding.

The guesthouse was neat and tidy. However, one can notice that the premises require some maintenance and attention. Room 2's DStv/TV link did not work. Lack to facilitate breakfast during loadshedding is an issue. To provide services to guests during loadshedding should be mandatory. This will distinguish special accommodations from lesser, more average ones.

Virginia Forest Lodge 's response

Dear Lesego,
I am very sorry that you feel this way. I feel that it we provided very good customer service and that the staff were friendly, helpful whilst accommodating your group by getting your rooms ready early at 11:00 when you arrived at the Lodge to check in. Check-in time is actually 14:00 as per the website.
You may however have felt uncomfortable at breakfast as the other guests of a fully booked Lodge were unhappy for being woken up and disturbed at 02.30 in the morning when your group arrived noisily at the Lodge and continuing your get together in the parking area.
If by any chance no-one asked you if you had enjoyed your stay, it may have been due to the fact that you had requested to stay an aditional night, and it would be understood that you would not have requested to stay another night if you were not happy. We could unfortunately not accommodate your group as the Lodge was fully booked.
Kind Regards,
Elsabe
Manager

Excellent accomodation with superb hosts

It was an awesome experience and enjoyable. Conditions and atmosphere were perfect in lodge. The only issue was cleanliness with linen needing to be changed daily.

Aan alle verwagtings voldoen!

Hierdie mense was baie vriendelik, ons ontvangs was gul. Hulle weet hoe om gaste tuis te laat voel. Hulle werk as 'n span saam en is baie hulpvaardig. Ons beveel hulle sterk aan by enige toekomstige gaste.

Really made to feel welcome .... almost part of the family!

From arrival to departure you are part of this wacky hospitality duo's family. Really easy going and hosts Arlene and Mike are around to meet your needs or even ferry you safely to and from a local restaurant. I would definitely return.
