OVERALL: the room and establishment was incredibly clean, beautifully furnished and well equipped with basic amenities. The fact is it’s just not worth the room rate.
ROOM: We stayed here for one evening in a twin room. On arrival we received a coldish welcome form the owner. The twin room was incredibly small with little space for moving around. The DSTV was not working and when approached the owner could not rectify the problem. There was a clock in the hallway outside our door which chimed one every hour which subsequently woke us up continuously during the night and made our stay quite unpleasant.
BREAKFAST: The breakfast was disappointing considering the room rate and what I have received elsewhere at the same price. I asked for fried aubergines and when my plate arrived I was given two pieces each the size of a 5 rand coin. It was actually quite a laugh. Also we were each given one piece of toast and then asked afterwards if it was enough.
When we left we were asked quite rudely by the host if we had taken anything form the courtesy bar as if we were dishonest.
