For one thing, not having a blocked sink would have helped. The sink was disgustingly backed up from the moment we got there and we basically camped, having to wash dishes in a plastic bucket (WITH NOWHERE TO POUR THE DIRTY WATER?). How do you have three stars and we can't wash our own dishes? That was disgusting. We had to plunge to try to drain the sink. And when we phoned? No response.For another, can the toilet seat be fixed and not shift around? For another, could you respond when we call about a problem?Absolutely zero response.We had a pleasant weekend because we refused to cave under...

The property is a bit neglected - a broken toilet, a few cobwebs, a broken toilet seat, a wall heater that does not reach the plug and light bulbs that have blown. It could do with some heated blankets for winter and complimentary wood for the fireplace. There is also no WiFi. Other than that it’s a place with a lot of character and comfortable beds with quality linen and a pleasant braai area.

We liked the cottage and fond it clean and comfortable but would have preferred an enclosed toilet.

Everything was clean but definately needs a makeover. I've stayed at three places b4 in Riebeeck Kasteel for less with tv and breakfast.

We were grateful to be accommodated at the last minute due to a double booking. Our stay was pleasant enough at the newer premises next to the main house. The 3 modern bathrooms were a bonus. Snags were the front door which was very difficult to open and with heavy rain the ceiling in the one bedroom leaked, probably due to a blocked gutter.Suggestions; a welcome booklet with detail of the accommodation and what the village can offer.Extra blankets for winter stays.
