Kimberley, South Africa
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The rooms are small, a bit close together, but very neat and comfortable. The rooms are fitted with air conditioners and DSTV. There is a lapa close by where we enjoyed watching sports and the sevens rugby tournament. It was quite enjoyable.

I can honestly recommend this place for a conference venue, food was good, bedrooms were clean and the conference room was brill. We had a braai on our 2nd night and the staff could not do enough for us to make sure we had everything we needed. I would have no hesitation in booking there again.

Hi Joanne. Thank you for you positive review indeed. Surely in this as well as all other industries one gets to play a good game of cricket ! you take a turn to bat and then a turn to bowl. It was great having your group and the braai was an absolute blast !

Love the venue, beautiful grounds and buildings, friendly staff and great rooms (room 1's TV could be bigger or pls provide a magnifying glass ;) ). My only issue was that the restaurant was under-staffed when we were there, thus affecting the time it took to get orders through and the food to the table. We waited 50 minutes only...

Dear Louis. Thank you for your review and comments. The items raised is noted and has been addressed.

It should be advertised as a back packers lodge because that’s what the room looked like. The rooms are incredibly small, no place to move. It is advertised as child friendly yet on my arrival I was told that they are not and the cot they put in my room for my one year old son was a favour they...

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. Pity one can not see the compliments and comments of appreciation from guests who choose to discus their experience with management in person rather to write negative comments via this platform. The challenge in this industry remains the ability to balance the expectation of guests with the price they are willing to pay...

I think it's important to stress that we didn't have a bad stay at Le Bac - our stay was comfortable and the property was perfectly located with regards to the wedding venue that we needed to be at in Paarl - We are in the industry and as such we are critical though of hospitality providers that service both...

Dear Reviewer Thank you for your feedback which we really appreciate. We know that the fact that we took over the business on 1 October 2016 should not be justification for the cosmetic and practical items raised. It does however impact on new staff training and implementation of best standards especially during the festive season with limited staff. Check-in and...

We have stayed all over South Africa and Europe. LE Bac certainly has a wonderful view. Though we only arrived at 18:00 we would have expected the reception to be open, to welcome us. However, we had to find assistance in the bistro. Once checked in and room found, we found our room to be clean and comfortable despite the...

Arrived on Boxing Day. We were told an hour before that we had to be there at 4 because all the reception staff were leaving. So had to pack really quickly and rush through to get the key.
