Exceptional and interesting.

We really enjoyed the stay. Went back in time. It's also worth visiting the galery and brewery.

Uitsonderlik en interressant.

Het ons verblyf baie geniet. Weer terug in tyd gegaan. Ook die moeite werd om die gallery en brouery te besoek.

Lovely old house in 'n wonderful town!

We received a friendly welcome from the hosts, Elize and Japie. The house is spacious and full of character with everything one would need for a self-catering holiday. Since we slept over on a cold night, I was worried that we would be cold, but I had nothing to worry about since there were 2 fireplaces and every room had an oil heater, electric blankets and warm linen.

Pragtige ou huis in 'n wonderlike dorp!

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang deur die opsigters, Elize en Japie. Die huis is ruim en vol karakter met alles wat mens nodig het vir 'n selfsorgvakansie. Aangesien ons op 'n koue nag daar oorgeslaap het, was ek bietjie bekommerd dat ons sou koud slaap, maar my vrees was ongegrond aangesien daar twee kaggels is, en elke slaapkamer het 'n olieverwarmer, elektriese warmkomberse op die beddens en warm beddegoed.

Rêrig spesiaal.

Die karavaanpark is rêrig spesiaal, BAIE netjies maar nie seker of dit so veilig is nie. Baie mense wat net rondhang in die straat. Jou beste opsie in die dorp.

Negligent.

Bedding was not new and clean, we had to pull long red hair out of bed. Because the room is for only 2 people, one can naturally sleep with the door open leading to the lounge. For that reason, we could never find the geyser's switch hidden behind the open door. We then used the caravan park's bathrooms to first find the switch. The place is inundated with mosquitoes. A Citronella candle or something would be appreciated that would help to fall asleep. There is a fireplace, but 4 pieces of wood will be appreciated for just a little atmosphere. It doesn't have to be a bag full. The coffee point was pathetic. Cheap Ricoffy and just one sachet of rooibos. The bigger house is poorly divided into two so one can hear the bigger side for 6 people or hear their noise. To crown it, one gets an email from the owner to contact the receptionist (Elize) an hour before arrival. So you get poor instructions over a phone at the speed of light, just to discover that no one will be waiting for you, but rather it is you who have to go on a treasure hunt for the key somewhere hidden. In short, not again I will use the guest house, although for the caravan park I will.

Nalatig.

Beddegoed was nie nuut en skoon nie, ons moes lang rooi hare uit die bed trek. Omdat die vertrek vir slegs 2 bedoel is sal mens met nature dalk met die deur oop slaap wat lei na die sitkamer. Oor die rede kon ons nooit die geiser se skakelaar opspoor wat agter die oop deur weggesteek staan nie. Ons het toe die karavaanpark se badkamers toe gebruik om eers te laat die skakelaar op te spoor. Die plek is oorval met muskiete. 'n Citronella-kersie of iets sou waardeer word wat sou help dat die slaap ons oorval het wat heel aand weggebly het. Daar is 'n kaggel, maar so 4 stukkies hout sal waardeer word vir net 'n bietjie atmosfeer. Dit hoef nie 'n sak vol te wees nie. Die koffiepunt was pateties. Goedkoop Ricoffy en net een sakkie rooibos. Die groter huis is swak opgedeel in twee so mens kan die groter kant bedoel vir 6 mense of so se geraas hoor. Om dit te kroon kry 'n mens 'n e-pos van die eienaar om die ontvangsdame (Elize) 'n uur voor aankoms te kontak. Maak mens so dan word instruksies half power oor 'n foon teen die spoed van lig uitgebulder, net om te ontdek dat niemand daar vir jou sal inwag nie, maar eerder is dit jy wat op 'n skattejag moet gaan vir die sleutel iewers weggesteek. In kort, nie sommer weer sal ek van die gastehuis gebruik maak nie, alhoewel vir die karavaanpark sal ek.

Kliëntediens is minimaal en die krag trip sodra die waterverhitter aanskakel saam met 'n ander elektriese toestel.

Moes bykans 'n uur wag om toegang tot die eenheid te kry. Die eienaar beantwoord geen selfoon nie en daar is ook nie geriewe om die bestuurder te akkommodeer op die perseel om gaste te ontvang of te help nie.

Magical place but not as friendly as expected.

No contact was made re the key - if the couple in the adjacent room had not arrived at the same time as we did, we would not have been able to get in. No fire tongs etc for fireplace. No provision was made like lagging pipes or warning guests of the possibility of pipes icing up. We were left with no water to make coffee/bath or even flush the toilet!

Koue weer, warm verwelkoming!

Twee bitterkoue nagte in die Oupa Alph-eenheid spandeer. Toe ons die eerste aand in die bed klim, besef ons die elektriese kombers is aangeskakel voor ons aankoms. Ons het baie welkom gevoel, en baie dankbaar! Buiten die koue het ons ons kuier baie geniet en sal definitief Zonnenstrahl Gastehuis aanbeveel. Ons het baie veilig gevoel en die stilte was heerlik.

Misleidend, nie eers koffie en tee, of seep in badkamer nie.

Pragtige huis met baie potensiaal! Kort net afronding!

Goeie dag,
Ek verstaan nie want ons het koffie, suiker en melk uitgesit.
Het jul dit nie gesien nie.

Die huis is 200 jaar oud, so nogal 'n challenge om dit reg te hou.

Die huis is mooi maar het werk en liefde nodig.

Daar was niemand om die gaste te verwelkom nie en ek was gevra om die ander gaste se sleutels vir hulle te gee. Die plek het TLC nodig.

Ontspan.

Die huis was baie gerieflik en ons het 'n heerlike ontspanne naweek gehad. Die huis is aan die buitekant van die dorp self, so is 'n bietjie ver om te stap na die dorp self, maar ook nie regtig 'n probleem. As ek nou baie krities moet wees dan was die yskas nie mooi skoon, die ketels kon ons nie gebruik, het 'n goeie “descaling” nodig, so het heel naweek met pot op stoof water gekook. Die bank in die sitkamer naaste aan die kaggel is op sy laaste, baie stukkend en lendelam. 'n Ekstra swartsak vir vullis sou gaaf gewees het. Die huis is baie oud en dat vensters en deure nie mooi toemaak is te verstane. Geen diefwering op vensters en deure behalwe een deur. Stort lek baie en maak die vloer baie nat. Die tuin is lieflik en was heerlik om buite onder die wilgerboom te sit. Pragtig met die koppie agter die huis.

Very stately and comfortable accommodation.

It is a very beautiful and stately old house with a beautiful and well-kept garden, considering that it is a very old house. Everything is well-looked after and it is in a quiet area, a little bit to one side from the rest of the town, but still but within walking distance. It has a very beautiful view of the surroundings. The house is very spacious and is reasonably well equipped for self-catering.

Baie statige en gerieflike verblyf.

Dit is 'n baie mooi en statige ou huis met 'n mooi en versorgde tuin, in aggenome dat dit 'n baie ou huis is. Alles is goed versorg en dit is in 'n rustige omgewing, bietjie eenkant van die res van die dorp, maar binne loopafstand. Dit het 'n baie mooi uitsig op die omgewing. Die huis is baie ruim en is redelik goed toegerus vir selfsorg.

Beautiful, historical house with character.

Really lovely and comfortable, but some repairs need doing. Jacques was a wonderful help with wood and he made sure the house was clean and full of flowers! Thank you, Jacques!
