4 Star Guest House but no air con?
Very limited TV Channels.
Upstairs Lounge TV Remote Did Not work.
One tiny bar of soap is given at the start of your stay which you must use in the shower and then take it out the shower when you need to wash your hands.
No milk was given on 2nd day of stay.
No cool drinks or beer are stocked as the guest house has no liquor license.
Breakfast consists of fruit and then the following:
2 rashes bacon
And then each morning they give 3 slices toast, not 4, but 3.
Much room for improvement.
But the fastest improvement would be if the manager did not have the approach that everything she does for you is a big favour to you when you are paying R1300 per night.
The manager really made us feel like we were an inconvenience instead of the reason the guest house is in business.
Too many negatives to mention.
We could not wait to leave.
