"very poor self catering unit"

"layout of the unit is ridiculous / no privacynot cleanplace needs a serious revamp / renovation"

"The unit smelled and the linen was so thread bare. The pillows had long since seen better days - two pillows in a pillow case. There was only one blanket and no electric blanket and the room was extremely cold.Self catering was some what impossible as there was only a saucepan and a large pot. The bath room left a lot to be desired, there was not even a bath mat on the floor.The host were not very welcoming at all. They would not open the gate for us to pull the car in till I had till I had filled in a form and paid a key deposit. This I find in very bad taste. I had not yet received the keys when I was asked what time will I be leaving. I would most certainty never go back or advise people to go there. This was by far the worst place I have ever stayed in."
"I would not return"

"I was going to skip reviewing - something better left unsaid - but their failure to honour a verbal agreement on my departure has left me feeling uncharitable. The room had wet carpets, it smelt damp, the shower drain stank but the shower is good, the cupboards smelt musty, the blankets were plentiful but dirty, and the linen had burn marks from an iron. The bed was comfortable (aside from the polyester linen) but under the window, which meant you either had fresh air and froze, or inhaled the mouldy smell. It is a lovely old house, with a good front stoep. Perhaps the other bedrooms are better - don't ask for the blue room. And get any agreements in writing."
"Good location, good service and value for your money"

"I received the most friendly and helpful reception, so lovely and great first impression of the B&B. The owners couldn't have been more sweet and they ensured that I would leave with a good impression. Everything about the B&B was good. It was clean, in a good location, roomy, with excellent service and great value for money. The room itself was well equipped and comfortable. I was very pleased with my stay, and although it was short and sweet, I'll surely go back for a longer visit in the future."

"Not Even 'Shabby Chic'."

"When we arrived Juan seemed to confuse us with other people, till I showed him the confirmation letter I had. We were tired and just wanted to have some dinner and go to bed.The apartment we were given was shabby. We are three ladies all in our 70's and I being the youngest had to get up onto a wobbly bunk bed with no ladder but only a 'bankie' to stand on. Carpet and sleeper couch were filthy. Light fittings broken and an excuse for a net curtain in the bedroom. The Breakfast they offered was very expensive ie R5.00 per egg, R15.00 for a piece of bacon etc plus an extra R20.00 preparation fee. We feel we were just shoved into the last available space in their establishment. It was only R249.00 per night per person but we still would have expected clean, and neat and simple rooms for the price."
"No stars - not recommended"

"Very old interior, dirty carpets, scanty curtains, linen, only shower and toilet with cheapest handwash and spray ... creepy atmosphere. Flatlet is divided by door to another room and can hear other people clearly. For R1200 per night? Never ever again. Only stayed for the night as we could not find any other accommodation in George for the night."
"Good value"

"Great place to overnight. Very clean. Being able to have our dog with us is great. Friendly people and very quiet."
