        False advertising, this is a 1 star establishment”

        Owner was hospitable

        The facility was old & in need of upkeep, the entrance to the driveway was waterlogged, our room door was wet & rotting away. The main lodge (reception)was nice but where we lived was a short distance away & rated 1 star on the wall, not 3 star, this is very deceptive as I would not have booked it. The unit is behind the N2 highway & noisy at night, we couldn't rest although on holiday. The people were noisy at night & there seemed to be maintenance taking place at night. Very disappointed & feel your advertising is deceptive, last booking.

        Water (Hot) water or lack of it - problems”

        Firstly the general Staff and especially the Lady at the Reception were very friendly. However, Whilst preparing to shower at about 19h00, after a 900km journey from upper Natal, there was NO water in the hot water system and we had to call out the receptionist (from home) to help. She tried in vein to coax the water out, but to no avail. We were eventually transferred to another room. Disappointingly the glaring lack of interest by the Owner\Manager or the absence of an apology\comment from them for this inconvenience, it was almost as if it was a regular occurrence to them and did not need any reaction from them, is unacceptable.

        Dem Preis entsprechend ok.”

        preiswert

        Nur als schlichte Übernachtung bei Durchreise geeignet. Lage in einem Wohngebiet. Sehr windig und viel Sand in der Luft. Liegt direkt an der Autobahn. Die Unterkunft befindet sich zwei Querstraßen von der Rezeption entfernt. Die Gemeinschaftsräume werden abends von einer Religionsgemeinschaft genutzt. Außer Fastfood befindet sich kein Restaurant im Umkreis von 8 km. Das Frühstück ist gut. Der Zugang ist durch Tore und Gitter gesichert.
