Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Did not even check in after being shown inside the place. Working for Dept of Labour this place has to be inspected for habitation. The owner promised a refund which I am still waiting for hi

Gariep stop-over
Lovely place with enjoyable facilities - pool table, braai area, communal kitchen, wifi. Sadly we didn't have warm water or a lockable toilet door, and the way I was treated when the card payment didn't go through when we left really spoilt it for me. I understand they were concerned, but no person deserves that treatment. I would've loved to go back as it really is a nice place, especially given the low rates.

Very basic facilities, adequate for overnight stay. Staff friendly & welcoming. A bedside reading lamp would be a nice addition.
