'n Elegante en gerieflike oornagrus.

Vultures Lodge is 'n pragtige ou Vrystaatse plaaswoning wat gerestoureer en smaakvol omskep is in 'n elegante oornag-rusplek. Addisionele cottages bied 'n "rustic" atmosfeer. Ek het die kaggel baie geniet, siende dat ek in die middel van die winter daar oornag het. My besoek is afgerond met 'n eersteklas ontbyt in die geskiedkundige eetkamer. Die diens was uitstekend.

Hulle het uit hul pad gegaan om my twee busbestuurders te akkomodeer wat nie binne hul aankomstyd daar kon wees nie. Samantha is 'n ster.

Heerlike oornag verblyf.

Ons het na inkloktyd aangekom en Samantha het ons van al die nodige inligting voorsien om by ons eenheid uit te kom. Aangenaam verras met die eenheid. Samantha het kontak behou totdat ons veilig en gelukkig was. Dankie Samantha, jy is 'n ster!

Heerlike skoon en netjiese oornag in Zastron.

Samantha was 'n wonderlike gasvrou, ons sommer ge-upgrade toe ons daar aankom. Cottages baie skoon en linne ruik heerlik skoon. Ons het lekker gebraai en op die gras gelê en kyk na die mooiste sterrehemel. Sal beslis weer daar oornag. Dankie Samantha.

Die kamers is ruim en goed ingerig. Die omgewing is pragtig. Daar is egter beter opsies in Zastron.

My grootste bekommernis is sekuriteit. Toe ons laat die aand terugkeer, het die hek oopgestaan. Die afstgandbeheerder wat ons gehad het, het die hek nie toegemaak nie. Enigeen kon dus ongestoord toegang tot die perseel kry. Die wasbak in die badkamer is bitter klein. Mens kan nie behoorlik hande was of skeer sonder om alles rondom die wasbak nat te maak nie.

Lovely stay with a few niggles.

There is no thoroughfare in the room for fresh air, so it was extremely hot even with a noisy fan supplied. I thought it quite unprofessional that we (and 3 other parties in the cottages) weren't met and welcomed upon arrival. Thanks to my husband dismantling the showerhead, we were able to have a shower. It is such a lovely place, I regret leaving feeling disappointed and slightly annoyed!

Pragtig, netjies en skoon.

Baie oulike plek vir 'n "stop-over". Netjiese, ruim en skoon kamers en linne. Samantha is 'n baie oulike bestuurderes. Pragtige antieke houtmeubels en Persiese matte wat van die eienaar se goeie smaak getuig. Voorafgereëlde etes was smaaklik en gerieflik. Kan met 'n geruste hart Vultures Lodge aanbeveel.

Not as expected.

Vultures Lodge could be a very nice stop-over, but it does not have adequate insulation in the ceilings and the result is that the rooms are extremely hot. Calling ahead in December on Christmas Eve we found out an hour before arriving that the lodge was not going to serve dinner, apparently a message was left that we didn't receive informing us. Upon arrival we found our room to be a lot smaller and darker than we had remembered when booking, however we unpacked and started to prepare dinner only to find there was no gas, we were informed by the owner who was elsewhere the bottle was behind our unit, but after investigating in the dark we realised it was in a locked storeroom and gave up on that. The following day we checked our notes which confirmed we were not in the room as advertised and the owner confirmed that all the other units are different to the unit advertised.

Dit was 'n heerlike ou wêreldse-ervaring.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang. Het heerlik op die stoep gekuier en gebraai. Ons moes ons eie hout bring wat ons voor die tyd gekommunikeer het. Die kombuis was ten volle toegerus, die beddegoed kraakvars en die ontbyt (voor af gereël) heerlik. Ons het net filterkoffie gemis, maar het gelukkig ons eie voorraad gebring. Sal beslis weer kom.

The only complaint I have it that the breakfast was lukewarm on a cold morning. The staff forgot to switch on the hot plates. Otherwise the service was excellent.

Baie aangename verblyf.

Die enigste klagte is dat die ontbyt op 'n koue oggend louwarm was. Personeel het vergeet om warm skinkbord aan te skakel. Andersins uitstekende diens.

Aangename en rustige plattelandse verblyf.

Aangename en rustige plattelandse verblyf met interessante meubels, houtvloere en karakter. Goeie aandete. Jammer daar was nie koffiefasiliteite in die kamers nie, en die algemene ''koffie-hoekie'' in die eetkamer se goeie kitskoffiebottel was leeg, en die koffie in die koffiemasjien se filter was nog 'n vorige geleentheid se gebruikte koffie.

Exceptionally beautiful house, beautifully furnished.

We were so impressed with the pictures on the site and really looked forward to the stay. We were travelling with our new in-laws from Israel and all of us were overwhelmed with how beautiful the house and area was, as well as at the hospitable welcoming by Samantha and all the staff.

Uitsonderlike mooi huis met karaktervolle meubilering.

Ons was so beïndruk met die foto's op die webblad en het baie uitgesien na ons verblyf. Ons was op toer met ons nuwe skoonfamilie uit Israel en almal was oorweldig met hoe pragtig die huis en omgewing was, en hoe gasvry Samantha en die hele personeel ons verwelkom het.
