"The stone chalet was original and different. It was clean, but the beds and bedding are horrible. Duvet smelled of previous guests. That was unacceptable. The beds really old and uncomfortable. Very little investment in the place. Owners very nice and friendly. Pity so neglected."

"They offer great food at a low price. But the room itself was very disappointing. It wasn't clean, there was dirt on the floor and the bathroom and toilet did not look clean.We wouldn't recommend staying overnight.Establishments Response:Good day. You stayed in Number5. This unit was recently renovated, painted and the floor was re-laidwith stone from the mountain and polished. Our Chalets have a rustic lookfor we build it ourselves with stone from the mountain. Maybe it was justnot your idea of busveldt stay. In the future please bring such problemsdirectly to the owners attention, we could have moved you to a different roomif that one was not satisfactory to your needs. Why complain afterwards if youcould have done it straight away? Thank you for your constructive comments."

"The management was very friendly and accommodating. The gardens were well kept. The braai meat we bought at the shop was fresh and tasty. The chalets had little natural light."

"For our family it was an experience. And a good one at that. This is not your Aventura resort but the kindness and the warmth of the owners is gratifying. We rested well, the place is neat and the spiritual experience was great. Real farm cooking and food. Kids loved the place."
