Rose Cottage
Ranked #8 of 9 Gariep Dam B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 January 2014

PROs
- clean and spacious
- well-equipped kitchenette

CONs:
- cottage is NOT in Gariep Dam, but ca. 50kms away in Oviston, which was not to be learned from the Rose Cottage's website. This should definitely be corrected for future travellers!
- cottage is very poorly sound-proofed

Note: stay away from the only bar/pub/restaurant in Oviston (just up the road from the cottage) -- unless you fancy having a drink under a flag that has been banned in other countries long ago and/or unless you support the shocking political views of the place's owner!

Reviewed 16 October 2013

Me and my boyfriend were looking for a place to stay in the area and called the property. The guy on the phone said he was the owner and told us to call John when we were within 20 minutes. He said they accepted cash only. We called John who told us to call when we were there. We went to 14 Hammerkop street as listed on their website and it was in a township. We called John again to ask for directions. He refused to give us directions and insisted we meet him at a gas station where he would be waiting for us on a red scooter to lead us there. It was already dark by now and we insisted on just getting the right directions over the phone. John just got frustrated with the request because apparently he did not know how to give basic directions and his only option for us was to meet him, a stranger, at night at a gas station in an area we were not familiar with. Sounded very strange so we decided to move on.

Reviewed 20 August 2013

Arrived after dark, no instructions as to where shops or restaurants were apart from one smoking restaurant which was not suitable. Television did not work, not enough hot water in the morning and you could hear everything in ajoining apartments. Worst accomodation in a three week trip.
