The image of the inn portrayed on the website is deceiving as what looked to be stylish and clean turned out to be anything but. Our room smelt of damp and unclean drains, wasn't particularly clean,the doors didn't fit properly and by South African standards the food was distinctly average. On the first morning of a two night stay I was awoken at 8.00 a.m. by drilling and banging in a neighbouring room and on the second morning, while taking a bath at 8.30 a.m, someone (who turned out to be a handyman) was hammering incessantly to be in the room to fix the doors. When I complained at breakfast the handyman had the good grace to apologise advising that he'd been acting on instructions from the owner. I therefore explained my concerns to the owner who was extremely arrogant saying that there was work to do and how was he to know what time I would be up! There is a tourism association trying hard to promote tourism in Wakkerstroom and to all intents and purposes it is a lovely little place to visit for the birds, walking, biking etc. Sadly with this inn being the only real option of somewhere to stay (other than a few B&B's) and eat in the evening I feel, based on our experience, their efforts may be in vain.
