Baie vriendelike diens en die ligging is baie mooi met die rivier wat reg voor die lodge verby gaan.

Ons het die kort kuiertjie vreeslik baie geniet. Baie dankie. Baie goeie waarde vir geld.

Ongelooflik mooi en rustig langs die Oranjerivier.

Waschbank River Lodge is ‘n pragtige plek langs die Oranjerivier met die mooiste uitsig van jou kamerdeur. Die mense is gasvry en hulpvaardig. Die plekkie is skoon en naby aan die N1, perfek vir ‘n vinnige oornag voor jy verder ry. Word beslis aanbeveel.

Pleasant and accommodating.

It was nice to receive a call on our way there to confirm our arrival and directions. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly host and staff. The accommodation is basic but was sufficient for all our needs. The beds are very comfortable. We were supplied with firewood and fire lighters and then left to do our own thing. All said a very pleasant stay. I have already recommended to friends and colleagues.

Ons het baie lekker gebly.

Ons het nou al 'n paar keer by Waschbank oorgebly op pad Kaap toe en terug. Dis 'n pragtige lodge op die oewer van die Oranjerivier. Jy voel sommer of jou vakansie begin as jy daar aankom. Ons kamer was mooi skoon en die air-con was awesome in daai hitte. Ek sou net graag 'n klein yskassie in die kamer wou hê om van ons padkos en water koud te hou vir die volgende dag. Die eienaar is ook baie gasvry en vriendelik, mens voel dadelik welkom.

Badkamer het werk nodig.

Swak stortkop en lomp heining. Die kamer was goed, maar die ete was swak. Gevra of dit tuisgemaak is, wat bevestig is, maar volgens smaak is dit kommersiële en vooraf bevrore artikels.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Bathroom needs work.

Poor shower head and rickety enclosure. Room was good, but the meal was poor. Asked if items were home made which was confirmed, but by taste they are commercial and pre-frozen items.

Good day Sir,
Thank you for the feed back, we are in the process of upgrading the unit bathrooms for the year of 2020. 2019 we did the rooms and bedding. Was lovely to meet you and hope you will visit as again to see the changes. All the best for 2020.

Reception very friendly, but room extremely dusty (guests developed sinus problems) and floor was not washed long.

Very friendly staff. The impression of the place is that it seems neglected and room and floor that is not properly cleaned, unacceptable, which is definitely not worth the rate of stay. Best description: Rustic, but not in a nice way.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Ontvangs baie vriendelik, maar kamer uiters stowwerig (gaste het sinusprobleme ontwikkel) en vloer lanklaas gewas.

Baie vriendelike personeel. Die indruk van die plek is dat dit verwaarloos voorkom en kamer en vloer wat nie behoorlik skoongehou word nie, onaanvaarbaar wat beslis nie die tarief van die verblyf werd is nie. Beste beskrywing: Rustic, but not in a nice way.

Dit was 'n ongelooflike uitsig op die oranjerivier vanuit die Eko Tent en ook vanaf die groot kuierstoep. Die personeel, veral Friday, was ontsettend hulpvaardig en gasvry.

Alles was werklik uit die boonste rakke en onverbeterlik. Die ligging is ongelooflik en die personeel hulpvaardig en vriendelik. Ek dink egter dat vir 'n plek met soveel aan sy kant, kan die kwaliteit van die restaurant se kos beslis verbeter.

Aangenaam verras.

Baie goeie ligging, maar neem die N1 tot by Gariep. Die kamer was ruim en netjies, met goeie waterdruk in die stort. Daar is ‘n air-con in die kamer wat definitief welkom was in die hitte. Fantastiese uitsig oor die Oranjerivier! Die kos was hemels, steak word definitief aanbeveel. Parkering is veilig en die staf was baie vriendelik.

Good overnight accommodation in the tent.

We stayed in the tent right on the river which was lovely. The staff went out their way to make it comfortable for us. It was lovely having a private braai area. Even though there is no electricity in the tent there is solar lights and gas for the shower. We were also supplied with an extension lead to be able to charge phones etc. All in all a good overnight stay after a long travel from Cape Town.

Baie gaste, so diens met etes was stadig. Ek dink hulle moet wegbeweeg van spyskaart, en slegs een of twee disse aanbied.

Wonderlikste ligging aan Oranjerivier. Voel asof jy met vakansie is. Rustig, beeldskoon. Diens met aandete en ontbyt was stadig. Muggies in kamer na aandete was soos Bybelse plaag. Dalk kan hulle iets daaraan doen met sif voor vensters en deure.

Very relaxing atmosphere with everything you need to enjoy it.

We had a wonderful stopover on our way back after our holiday. We enjoyed the tranquility of the river bank and the beautiful sunset from the deck. Would probably stay another night if we had the time. The grandchildren would have enjoyed it if there was also a TV in the chalet, but for us adults it was really great just to enjoy nature.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Heerlike ontspannende atmosfeer met alles wat mens nodig het om dit te geniet.

Ons het 'n heerlike oorstop geniet op pad terug na ons vakansie. Ons het die rustigheid van die rivieroewer en die pragtige sonsondergang vanaf die dek so geniet. Sou vir seker nog 'n nag daar kon bly as ons die tyd gehad het. Die kleinkinders sou dit geniet het as daar 'n TV ook in die chalet was, maar vir ons volwassenes was dit eintlik heerlik om net die natuur te kon geniet.

Unbelievable location with friendly and helpful staff.

Waschbank is beautifully situated on the banks of the Orange River, just below the Gariep Dam. The view from the deck with sunset is unforgettable. The staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful. Friday is an great cook and even confirmed that everything was to our liking. We will definitely be looking for the peaceful scenery here.

Ongelooflike ligging met vriendelike en behulpsame personeel.

Waschbank is pragtig geleë op die oewer van die Oranjerivier, net onder die Gariepdam. Die uitsig vanaf die dek met sonsondergang is onvergeetlik. Die personeel is baie vriendelik, effektief en behulpsaam. Friday is 'n uithaler-kok en kom sommer self bevestig dat alles na ons smaak was. Ons gaan beslis weer die rustige natuurskoon hier opsoek.

Rustige en veilige atmosfeer.

Wonderlik om langs die Groot Rivier (Gariep) te sit en ontspan aan die einde van 'n dag se lang reis. Kos ook baie smaaklik. Ons sal maklik weer hier kom oornag!

Pragtige Afrikaanse gasvryheid.

Die sjef, Janco (as ek sy naam reg onthou) en ons kroegman, Friday, het heeltemal uit hulle pad gegaan om ons te bederf. Julle is 'n werklike aanwins vir die lodge, mooi gedaan! Dankie ook vir die eienaar se lekker gesels, was baie insiggewend. Ons sal graag weer kom kuier.

Baie dankie vir die mooi woorde. Dit was vir ons heerlik om julle te ontmoet en lekker te gesels. Ons sien julle graag weer.

Aangename verblyf in tent.

Dit was ongelooflik warm. Die grondpad vanaf die hoofpad was maar in 'n swak toestand. Ons het verkies om in die tent te bly met ons twee hondjies. Dit was redelik aangenaam, maar baie warm. Sal eerder 'n kamer of een van die huise aanbeveel. Ongelooflike lekker ontbyt op die dek gehad.

As ek nie so moeg was nie het ek eerder verder gereis en nie daar gebly nie.

Die bed in die kamer was baie ongemaklik en die kussings ook. Lugversorging raas hewig en dit was te warm om dit af te skakel. Mens wil gemak hê na 'n lang, warm reis. Gordyne het baie verslons gehang en daar was stukkende strooikussings op die bed - haal dit eerder af. Die kamer was skoon, ten minste. Die plek het groot potensiaal, maar dit lyk nie of daar veel belangstelling is om dit op te gradeer nie. Die uitsig oor die Oranjerivier is baie mooi.

'n Baie mooi omgewing maar verblyf was teleurgesteld met die kamer.

Alhoewel die lodge in 'n baie mooi omgewing geleë is, was ons teleurgesteld met die kamer. Die gordyne se some was losgetrek en deurgeskif. Die lugversorger was onvoldoende - dit was baie warm en het nie die kamer afgekoel nie. Die sit- en eetkamer het ook nie voldoende lugversorging om 'n lekker koel vertrek op 'n warm dag te verseker nie. Alhoewel ontbyt ingesluit was by die prys, het ons om 07h50 vertrek sonder enige ontbyt. (Die krag het afgegaan en teen 07h45 was daar nog geen teken dat enige alternatief gebruik gaan word vir ontbyt nie.) Ek stel ook voor dat ontbyt vanaf 07h00 beskikbaar gestel word vir die gaste wat vroeg wil vertrek en wat ver het om te ry.

It was tranquil and beautiful by the water.

We wanted to stay in the Gariep area specifically, had a Jack Russel with us and tried Waschbank River Lodge, especially because of the meals. It was tranquil, relaxing and beautiful by the water, our Jack Russel moved around and didn't bother anyone. Because it is sheep country we had lamb chops for dinner but we were disappointed by the food. The breakfast had a big variety but it wasn't on standard. The tranquillity overpowers the not so good experience with the preparation of meals.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Dit was rustig en pragtig so by die water.

Ons wou spesifiek in Gariepomgewing oornag, 'n Jack Russel saam met ons gehad en daarom Waschbank River Lodge op aanbeveling probeer, veral oor die etes. Dit was rustig, ontspanne en mooi so by die water, ons Jack Russel kon oral rondbeweeg en niks het gepla. Omdat dit skaapwêreld is, het ons skaaptjops gehad vir aandete maar was baie teleurgesteld met die kos, selfs ontbyt was 'n goeie verskeidenheid maar nie op standaard. Die rustigheid, gevoel van die plek oorheers egter die "nie goeie" voorbereiding van etes.

Ongasvry, maar netjies en skoon met goeie ligging.

Ons was nie baie goed ontvang nie. Daar was niemand by ontvangs nie, ons het toe na die restaurant gegaan waar ons 'n dame gekry het wat nie eers gegroet het nie en net gevra het of ons wil inboek. Nadat ons die vorms ingevul het, het sy die sleutel gegee en gevra of ons weet waar die kamer is. Hoe moes ons weet waar die kamer is? Sy het ons toe na die kamer toe gevat sonder om enige inligting te gee oor hoe laat ontbyt ens is. Daar was ook 'n deur in die kamer wat ons geskei het van ander mense wat nie gesluit was nie, ons het die deur oopgemaak en in iemand se kamer ingekyk. Dit was nie vir ons gesê nie. Anders as dit is dit 'n baie lekker plek en skoon en netjies. Alle kos is net nie vars nie. Sal weer soontoe gaan en hoop ons word beter ontvang.

Asemrowende uitsig!

Ons het ons aand by Waschbank River Lodge baie geniet! Buiten die vreeslike mooi uitsig oor die Oranje rivier, was hulle kliëntediens absoluut 'n wenner! Ons het net buite die skoolvakansie daar gaan bly, so die lodge was baie stil. Friday (wie aan diens was die aand toe ons daar gebly het) het baie mooi na ons gekyk, veral die aandete en ontbyt wat hy vir ons voorberei het!

Was teleurgesteld en moes ander verblyf reël.

Ons was vroeg by die bestemming en die versoek om wel in te boek was goed hanteer sonder enige probleme. Ons was egter baie teleurgesteld nadat ons die kamer en die res van die oord gesien het. Ek wil graag die volgende observasies onder u aandag bring: Die bed in ons kamer was van baie swak gehalte. Die houtraam was baie lendelam en ek sal nie met 'n geruste hart op die bed kon slaap nie. Die matras het ook beter dae geken, en met my vrou se rugprobleme kon ons net nie daar oornag nie. Daar was net een stoel beskikbaar in die kamer, maar akkommodasie was gereël vir twee mense. Ek het navraag gedoen vir die moontlikheid van braai, maar is ingelig dat dit nie 'n opsie was nie. Dit was en is aanvaarbaar, want die bespreking was vir B&B, maar nadat ons vir ongeveer 10 minute op die dek gesit het sonder enige kelner wat ons besoek het, het ons besluit om ander verblyf te gaan soek. Die oord in die algemeen is nie baie skoon nie en van die ander verblyfopsies waar self-catering wel beskikbaar is, was nie skoon nie met braai as nog steeds in die braaiers sigbaar. Die teleurstelling in die algemeen was baie groot en die feit dat ek ander verblyf moes gaan boek vir die 17de en 26ste Maart 2018 teen 'n koste van ongeveer R2700 is net totaal onaanvaarbaar vir my. Indien 'n vergelyking getref kon word tussen Waschbank en die res van ons verblyf tydens ons verlof, kan ek sterk aanbeveel dat daar 'n professionele vergelyking getref moet word in terme van prys en waarde vir geld. 'n Baie goeie voorbeeld is ons verblyf in Stilbaai. Drie slaapkamers, drie badkamers, ten volle toegeruste kombuis (huis), groot leefarea, braaigeriewe binne en buite, groot buite onthaal area en 'n uitstekende uitsig vir R1000.00 per nag. Vergelyk dit met die R790.00 vir Waschbank en u sal my teleurstelling verstaan. Uit bogenoemde is dit duidelik dat ek vir seker nie Waschbank sal aanbeveel gebasseer op ons onlangse ondervinding nie.

Nie gebly. Ons het alternatiewe verblyf gaan soek.

Die omgewing is pragtig met die rivier en die foto's is pragtig op die webtuiste. Die eenheid waarin ons sou slaap was glad nie aantreklik nie en ek het glad nie lus gehad om na 'n ver dag se ry daar oor te slaap nie. Die koffie-stasie se suiker was geëet deur wat ek dink 'n muis was en in een hoek van die vertrek was uitskeiding van die gedierte te sien. Die beddegoed lyk nie goed en die kussings wat die bed verfraai is uitgerafel en volgens my stokoud. Storte lyk nie goed nie en volgens my moet die plek 'n oordoen kry. Die uitsig oor die rivier is so mooi en die dit skep so n rustige atmosfeer dat dit so JAMMER is dat die res nie aandag kry nie.

Baie mooi uitsig op die Oranjerivier en baie gerieflike verblyf met fantastiese kos!

Die verblyf, kos en omgewing is fantasties! Omdat mens langs die rivier is het ons ongelooflik baie goggas en spinnekoppe gevind, maar die houtkapper op die stoep het dit als werd gemaak! Die plek is goed geleë en weggesteek sodat mens vrede in die natuur ervaar en die stukkie grondpad is baie goed instandgehou. Ons het vriendelike en goeie diens ontvang. Ons was baie tevrede.

Grootste teleurstelling van my lewe!

Ons het daar aangekom en hulle was nie gereed vir ons nie. Ek het toe 'n dame gebel om te sê ons het geboek, en sy het vir die meneer by die ontvangs gesê om ons in woonstel 9 te sit. Dit was bloedig warm en die woonstel nog warmer. Die meneer het die lugreëling vir ons aangesit, maar dit werk nie behoorlik nie. Nie die sitkamer of die kamer s'n nie. Die meubels is baie verwaarloos en die bank was stukkend. Die beddegoed en handdoeke redelik verweer. Die vloere was vol stof en die buitedek was vuil, vol stof. Die buitetafel was ook baie verweer. Ek het dit afgewas en twee handdoeke oor die tafel gegooi vir ons om op te eet. Moet darem sê die personeel was vriendelik en hulpvaardig deur ons te help om ons sleepwa af te haak. Daardie prys per nag is skandelik om vir so 'n plek te betaal. Vir die prys verwag ek baie meer gerief. Dalk meen die eienaar mens betaal vir die uitsig, ek weet nie. Moet sê die uitsig was baie mooi. Dit was 'n groot teleurstelling waarmee ons ons vakansie moes afsluit. Ek was net te moeg en warm om te kla, anders het ek beslis vir my ander plek gaan soek. Dis die meeste wat ek nog ooit per nag betaal het en ook die swakste wat ek nog ooit beleef het.

Gerieflike, mooi oornagplek.

Verblyf hier was aangenaam. Personeel vriendelik en die etes baie lekker. Gedurende vakansies met baie besoekers kan personeel meer oplettend wees dat alles in die kamers reg is. Ons badkamerlig het glad nie gewerk nie en van die ander gloeilampe in die kamer ook nie. Die koffiepoeier was in 'n oulike botteltjie, maar die teelepel is te groot om by die botteltjie se bek in te gaan. Tafels buite was vol stof.D ink net hulle kan meer aandag gee aan hierdie klein dingetjies. Gaan maar oor bestuur.

Goeie keuse vir 'n natuurliefhebber wat nie van hotelle of rondawels hou nie.

Die lodge se ligging maak dit iets besonders en die moeite werd om te besoek. Die ontvangs was vriendelik en goed en die twee kamers, 3 en 4 was netjies en skoon. Die groot stoep voor die kroeg en kamers is 'n heerlike kuierplek. Die kos was lekker maar ongelukkig koud. Daar moet egter aandag aan die instandhouding gegee word en die jare wys te duidelik. Die beddens kan ook opgradeer word met ordentlike matrasse, veral vir die ruglyers. Die koffie wat uitgesit is kan ook beslis ook verbeter word.

Rustig met 'n ongelooflike uitsig oor die Oranjerivier.

Ons het daar oornag op pad Kaap toe en ek was aangenaam verras, dis 'n oulike, skoon plek op die oewer van die Oranjerivier. Beslis die moeite werd om daar te stop.

Rustigheid langs die rivier na 'n lang dag op die pad is perfek!

Na 'n lang dag op die pad was dit lekker gewees om by die plekkie uit te slaan! Ons het in die tent geslaap vir een aand wat letterlik reg op die rivier is. Die tent is baie gemaklik en groot. Die kos was van die beste wat ek in 'n lang tyd gehad het en die pryse was spotgoedkoop vir sulke lekker kos! Die ontvangsdame was amazing en ja, sy mag maar kook! Dit was 'n stunning pitstop gewees waar ek het heeltemal kon ontspan langs die stunning Oranje rivier.

Ons is soos familie ontvang. Diens is van die beste wat ons nog gekry het. Dis die 2de keer wat ons by Waschbank oorslaap en ons sal beslis weer. Ons aandete was vars en die steaks perfek. Eienaars is betrokke en verseker hulle gaste se gemak. Uitsig oor die Oranje Rivier is asemrowend die sonsak beslis een vir jou kamera.

When we arrived we heard the whisper of the river and the accommodation / room was lovely. Oustanding food at the restaurant. Thanks Waschbank River Lodge staff.

Dit was lekker rustig, stil en heerlike kos van restaurant op die perseel.

Met ons aankoms kon jy die gekabbel van die rivier hoor en die verblyf / kamer was aangenaam gewees. Die restaurant se kos was uitstekend. Dankie vir Waschbank River Lodge se personeel.

Baie lekker rustig - op die rivier, uitstekende gasvryheid en baie vriendelike personeel

Baie lekker wegbreek, uitstekende ligging op die rivier. Restaurant se kos is heerlike - en die steak kan hoogs aanbeveel word. Die selfsorg eenhede is ideal vir paar dae se kuier. Goeie geriewe. Personeel almal vriendelik en baie behulpsaam.

As regards the star allocation I gave them too many. Total disappointment, they will never see us again.

The room is freezing. Linen as thin as a sheet and that in a part of the country that is so cold. Raw concrete floors. Dirty. One extra blanket, not even a dog would use it probably. Electric blanket but no wall socket. Have a look at A Dams View to see how it is supposed to be done. After having a look at my room I took my key to reception, got in my car and drove away. I was totally embarrassed to let my wife sleep in a place like this, so I booked A Dams view instead.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Wat die ster-toekenning aanbetref het ek hulle te veel gegee. Totale teleurstelling, sal my en my vriende nooit weer sien nie.

Yskas vir 'n kamer. Beddegoed so dun soos laken vir daai koue wêreld. Rou concrete vloere. Vuil. Een ekstra kombers wat ek twyfel of 'n hond op dit sal slaap. Warm kombers sonder muurprop. Gaan kyk by A Dams View hoe dit moet lyk. Ek het na ek die kamer gesien het die sleutel by ontvangs gaan sit, in my kar geklim en gery. Het my dood geskaam om my vrou in so plek te laat slaap en vir my 'n plek by A Dams view gekry.

Pragtige ligging en vriendelike diens.

Die enigste doring in die vlees was dat die "kok" aangedring het op 'n fooitjie via die kelner. Vind die versoek onaanvaarbaar. Fooitjies word bepaal deur diens vir die person wat die dens lewer - nie 'n kok wat nooit 'n verskyning gemaak het nie?

Unspoilt.

Beautiful location on the bank of a dam. Just note that your tent won't have any electricity for e.g. the hairdryer. When it's raining one can't braai and the tent also doesn't have a self-catering option.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Ongerep.

Pragtig geleë op die wal van die Gariepdam. Wees net bedag dat die tent geen elektrisiteit het vir bv. haardroër nie. As die wind waai of dit reën kan mens nie braai nie en die tent beskik ook nie oor selfsorg-opsie.

Not great value for money.

The accommodation is advertised as luxury accommodation. No power is available at the tent to power a fan or air-con as it was very hot and sleep was impossible. Coffee facilities is provided but with no power, a kettle cannot be used. Help and attitude of staff not great. Maybe the rooms are a better option. A set menu with chicken curry as dinner in 38 degree temperatures is not advisable.

Beautiful location but a little run down.

The place is not living up to its full potential. We stayed in the tent. At least put one electricity source in. There was a bad small in the resort.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Pragtige ligging maar effens verwaarloos.

Die plekkie se potensiaal word nie ten volle benut nie. Ons het in die tent oornag. Sit gerus ten minste net 1 kragpunt in. Daar het deurgaans 'n slegte reuk oor die oord gehang.

Peaceful, quiet place.

I just recommend putting candles and Doom in the chalets as the gnats were a nuisance, we kept the windows closed, but some of them entered when we were braaiing outside, like when we had to open the door to go outside. Was such a nuisance, especially since we didn't have Doom with us in the car, I took two candles from the car and that helped quite a bit later.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Rustige stil plek.

Ek sal net aanraai om asb. in die chalets kerse en Doom aan te hou omrede die muggies baie gepla het, ons het wel die vensters toegehou, maar daar het wel tog ingekom met die braaiery buite, soos met die deur na buite oopmaak as jy na binne of buite wil beweeg. Dit was glad nie vir ons lekker nie, veral omdat ons geen Doom by ons gehad het in die voertuig nie, ek het twee kerse van my uit die kar gehaal en dit het baie gehelp later.

Baie mooi uitsig, kamers is gerieflik, personeel is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam, baie lekker kos wat aangebied word.

Twee onderskeie aande daar geslaap. Ons is elke keer baie vriendelik ontvang. Die kamers is nie baie groot nie, maar gerieflik en die nodigste is daar. Die personeel is baie vriendelik. Die aandete wat aangebied word as jy daar wil eet, is baie aangenaam. Dit is 'n baie ontspanne atmosfeer en jy kan lekker ontspan met 'n drankie in die hand terwyl jy kyk na die sonsondergang oor die Oranjerivier.

Area is beautiful, room is neat, but the rest wasn't a great experience!

The room was neat, but the shower was terrible. The water was either scorching or ice cold, there is no midway. We had to wait 45 minutes for the breakfast. There was only one waiter with 20 people having breakfast. It was completely unorganised. Get some help when it's busy!

Omgewing baie mooi, kamer netjies, maar die res was glad nie 'n goeie ervaring nie!

Kamer was baie netjies. Die stort-ervaring was aaklig, die water was of kokend warm of heeltemal koud, geen middel temperatuur nie. Ons moes 45 minute wag vir die ontbyt. Daar was net een kelner met 20 persone wat moes ontbyt kry. Dit was heeltemal ongeorganiseerd. Kry hulp as dit besig is!

Goeiemiddag Alet,
Baie dankie vir die terugvoering. Dit is nie n verskoning nie maar ongelukkig het ek 2 personeellede gehad wat nie opgedaag het vir werk nie. Ons het regtig ons beste probeer om by te hou met al ons gaste se versoeke. Ek is jammer dit was nie vir jou 'n lekker ervaring nie.
Kom kuier gerus weer in die toekoms, ons is besig om n paar dinge te verander.

The food the manageress made for us was delicious, but the sleeping and bath arrangements were no fun!

The room is suitable for 8 guests, but only one can shower or bath and then the water is ice cold. The geyser is way too small. The house smelled of smoke, which was quite unpleasant. We couldn't light a fire in the fireplace, because the smoke would go in to all the rooms that were open and separated by partitions. The house was extremely cold, the beds are old and we will never sleep over there again. Beautiful view of the river at the restaurant and the food was good. Except the breakfast which could be improved with a wider variety of food choices.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Die kos wat vir ons voorberei was deur bestuurderes was lekker, maar die slaap en bad glad nie lekker nie!

Die kamer is geskik vir 8 gaste, maar net een kan stort of bad, dan is die water yskoud, die geyser is heeltemal te klein. Die huisie het vreeslik erg na vuurrook geruik, baie onaangenaam, kan nie vuur maak in die kaggel nie, rook trek in al die kamers in wat oop is en wat afgeskort is met afskortings. Die huisie was verskriklik koud, die beddens is al deurgeslaap. Sal nie weer daar slaap nie. Mooi uitsig oor die rivier by die restaurant en die kos was lekker. Behalwe die ontbyt kan definitief opgeknap word met 'n beter verskeidenheid van keuses.

A lot of potential, but needs a lot of work.

New management has a lot of work regarding upgrades. There is a ceiling panel that is going to fall out, a door that doesn't lock and finishes that need attention. The bathroom and floors needs to be upgraded. It will be difficult to have the rustic appearance seem clean again.
