Ligging perfek en netheid en gerief ook 'n pluspunt.

Ligging van gastehuis ideaal. Maklik om te vind. Kamers was netjies en geriewe in kamer 'n pluspunt.

Will not stay here again.

Although the room was not too bad, the rest was not standard. The old TV dates from Noah's ark. I see in another review that they would replace the TV's in the new year, but 5 months later they still didn't do it. The two single beds were not comfortable at all, even though they were covered with a sheet to hold them together. The one mattress was covered with some hard plastic and made noise when moving on it. There was only one geyser I could see to provide hot water to the rooms. It wasn't big enough and our last shower had to be cold. The mat in front of the shower was a black rubber carpet from a vehicle. The photos looked very nice, but we left with other impressions of the place. Will definitely not come back.

Sal nie weer hier bly nie.

Alhoewel die kamer nie te sleg was nie, was die res glad nie op standaard nie. Die ou buis-TV dateer uit Noag se ark. Ek sien in 'n ander resensie dat hulle die TV's sou vervang in die nuwe jaar, maar 5 maande later het hulle dit nog steeds nie gedoen nie. Die 2 enkelbeddens was glad nie gemaklik nie, al is hulle met 'n laken oorgetrek om hulle bymekaar te hou. Die een matras was met een of ander harde plastiek oorgetrek en het geraas as jy beweeg daarop. Daar was ook net een geyser wat ek kon sien om warm water te verskaf aan die kamers. Dit was nie groot genoeg nie en ons laaste oggend moes ons koud stort. Die matjie voor die stort was 'n swart rubber mat uit 'n voertuig gewees. Die foto's het baie mooi gelyk, maar ons is weg met ander indruk van die plek. Sal beslis nie weer terug kom nie.

Loadshedding meestal en geen lampe of kerse.

Kamer was netjies en skoon. Nie gehou van twee enkelbeddens teen mekaar. Slaap ongemaklik. Loadshedding een hele nag tot volgende oggend ses uur. Geen lampe of kerse. Parkering onveilig. Ete in restaurant was van uitstekende gehalte.

VJ'S Guesthouse's response

Beste Karin,

Baie dankie vir die terugvoer en jul ondersteuning.

Die bed is veronderstel om 'n dubbelbed matrasbedekker oor te hê. As dit nie die geval was nie, dan vra ons om verskoning.

Jammer die ongerief met beurtkrag. Daar is wel lampies beskikbaar vir die kamers by die kantoor. Die krag was veronderstel om aan te gaan om 21:30, wat nie gebeur nie. Dit het eers om 06:00 die volgende oggend aangekom, wat ongewoon is.

Die bestuurder het tot 01:00 aan diens gebly terwyl hulle normaalweg om 22:00 van diens af gaan. Daar is wel kameras op die perseel en in 21 jaar het was daar nog nie probleme nie, waaroor ons dankbaar is.

Groete,
Willie Viljoen

Improvement needed in a lot of areas.

The following areas needs attention: Reception - I was just given a form to complete and given the keys to to our room. Had to find our way and no other information shared. I was a bit concerned about our safety. No gate or security to the parking area. I requested a double bed and not two single beds put side by side. Bedside lamps would be preferred instead of florescent light on headboard. Television outdated.

VJ'S Guesthouse's response

Thank you for your feedback. Outside on the buildings, the numbers for the rooms are indicated as well as on the doors themselves. We will give attention to your request. We have an armed response and we have satellite TV cameras on the premises. All beds are covered with double bed protectors which keeps them from moving apart. We will be replacing the old television sets in the new year. Thank you

You will survive if you need to stay over for a wedding of work.

Bathroom's flooring is dangerously slippery, especially if you get out of the shower with wet feet. The TV in our room did not work at all and that after the owner moved us proudly to his newer rooms that had bigger TV's. It was still a very small, old TV set. The area was quiet with secure parking. Wimpy is walking distance, just around the corner - VJ's are on Sundays. Rooms are dark - window overlooks other buildings. There was free WiFi that worked.

As 'n mens moet oorbly a.g.v. 'n troue of werk op die dorp - sal jy oorleef.

Badkamer se teelvloer is lewensgevaarlik glad, veral as jy met nat voete uit die stort klim. Die TV in ons kamer het glad nie gewerk nie - en dit nadat die eienaar ons met trots na sy nuwer kamers geskuif het wat 'groter' TV's het. Dit was steeds 'n baie klein, stokou TV-stel. Die area was stil met veilige parkering. Wimpy is stapafstand, net om die draai - VJ's is Sondae toe. Kamers is donkerig - venster kyk uit op ander 'n gebou. Daar was gratis WiFi wat wel gewerk het.

VJ'S Guesthouse's response

Ons neem kennis van u waarneming, ons neem aanbevelings nie ligtelik op nie. Dankie vir u besoek. Ek noem net die volgende: Daar is 'n stortmatjie binne en buite die storte. Daar is ook n mat langs die beddens. Die TV was nie stukkend nie, maar de dekodeer het foutief geraak en dis die volgende oggend vervang na kamer inspeksie. Die gordyne is doelbewus donker van kleur sodat die gaste ook in die dag kan slaap. Ek bly op die perseel en my sel nommer is in die kamers beskikbaar indien enige van die gaste probleme ondervind. Die twee mans het heerlik saam my die "replay" van die Springbok wedstryd sit en kyk in die restaurant. Groete daar.

Behulpsame en vriendelike mense.

Baie vriendelike en behulpsame mense by VJ's. Die kamer was netjies en skoon. Enigste probleem was die Cocktail Bar se harde musiek wat ons wakker gehou het die Vrydagaand.

VJ'S Guesthouse's response

Dankie Derick, vir die goeie terugvoer. Ek sal terugvoering gee aan die huurder van die Cocktail Lounge.

Nie te sleg nie.

Vriendelike personeel, restaurant se kos was lekker teen bekostigbare pryse, ook lekker naby aan winkels, TV kort opgradering asook geen yskassie in die kamer nie, en die ander gaste het regdeur die nag geraas. Hulle moet dalk net strenger daarop wees.

Thank you for your feed back. We will take note of your recommendations.

Altyd netjies en lekker kos in hul restaurant. Goed geleë vir sakebelange in Uitenhage en Despatch.

Ek en my dogter was daar ingeboek. Ongelukkig het die ontvangs ons nie daaraan herinner dat hulle ons ontbyt moes bespreek vir die volgende oggend nie. Na 'n lang pad is rus 'n mens se eerste prioriteit en kan hierdie reëling besoekers maklik ontgaan. Ons moes dus die volgende oggend verneem dat ons geen reëlings vir ontbyt getref het nie en die restaurant ons nie met ontbyt kan help nie. Ek stel voor dat besoekers in die vervolg oor hierdie reëling duidelik ingelig sal word met hul inboek by ontvangs. Die vorige aand se pizzas in die restaurant was uitstekend en kan aanbeveel word as die beste in Uitenhage en Despatch.

VJ'S Guesthouse's response

Ek vra onverskoning vir die ontbyt aangeleentheid, Ek die eienaar sal dit aanspreek en regstel. Die personeel weet baie goed dat hulle die ekstra myl vir die kliënte moet loop. Al het u nie ontbyt bespreek nie, is daar geen rede dat hulle nie kon bedien het nie. Dit sou net bietjie langer geneem het

Very basic, restaurant was closed and this was not mentioned when we booked. No fridge in room and the TV in the room is a joke.

No breakfast was available, although it is advertised to have a restaurant where you can have breakfast.

VJ'S Guesthouse's response

Good afternoon,

The restaurant hours and closed days are on doors of the restaurant and reception, we were only closed over the Christmas weekend but there was a manager with staff on duty every day. The owner and the managers cell phone numbers are on the doors as well as in the rooms. No one phoned the manager to request breakfast which is what is required on public holidays and on Sundays.

Kind regards,
Samantha Lottering
Manager of VJ's Guesthouse

Gerieflik en netjies.

Ek persoonlik hou van stilte, privaatheid, netheid en ligging. Die kos is ook uitstekend en die pryse goed. VJ's het alles. Voertuie parkeer egter in oop parkeerarea sonder ’n veiligheidswag. VJ's sal in die toekoms my permanente oornagblyplek wees in Uitenhage en omgewing. Ek beveel hulle sterk aan.
