Reviewed June 9, 2011

We stayed in the "flat" at Donkin in winter time and it was freezing cold. The 2 bedrooms had air con which could blow hot air but the corridoor, bathroom, kitchen and lounge had no heating whatsoever and we were frozen. One child has ended up with bronchitis. The furniture in the lounge and kitchen were very out of date - as if handed down from Granny when she had finished with them. The staff were sympathetic when we said we were cold but claimed not to be able to do anything. It was R800 for the flat WITHOUT breakfast and we felt very disappointed. We were cold, we struggled to make a meal as the oven didn't close properly, one child got sick and we had spent over £70.

Room Tip: if it's winter double check about heating

Hi there Mrs Fiona

So sorry to hear that you guys were so unhappy. Just want to say that the units you guys stayed in were revamped shortly afterwards. I am sure that we can make you happy on your next visit.

I really want you guys to experience the hospitality that we have to offer here at Donkin Country House and our good food everyone is talking about. On your next visit through the Karoo do come in and enjoy something on the house at our restuarant.

Kind regards,
