“Everything you need for a great stay in a peaceful Karoo town”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The house is located in the centre of town, so everything is close by and you can walk / cycle from the front door. The house has everything one needs for a short or long stay. We were a group of 7 and there was plenty of room in the house and small cottage out back. Beautiful garden with pool. Well stocked kitchen allows for easy self-catering. Rooms are large and most are en-suite. The only thing missing we felt was electric blankets (it has been a cold winter), although there are wall heaters and a gas heater which kept the house warm.

We have stayed at the house before and will stay there again.

This treasure of a home in Prince Albert was the perfect stopover needed before we embarked on fieldwork in the Swartberg. The price was right, the beds plentiful and I have never come across such a marvelously equipped kitchen for a self catering house before, it had everything and more! Fiona was a most gracious host, even letting one of our party who fell ill during the night to rest up at the house the following day while we were busy in the mountains for the morning. Thank you, thank you, we were in awe :D

“Bad Attitude by Manageress”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The manageress has a very unethical and poor customer relationship skills - definitely not interested in dealing with problems or building a customer base.

On entering the house we were almost immediately overwhelmed by the smell and lack of ventilation, due to the house being locked up for some time. Surely, when receiving a guest, ventilating the house on the day of arrival would be standard practice.

Added to the above, we found that the lack of cleanliness(bedding, netting, windows sills) to be poor. The bedding had stains of lipstick and other spatters – definitely not up to standard of a 3 Star Tourism Graded Establishment.

After a long trip, the last thing any guest wants to do is get to their destination of rest and not feel comfortable to sleep there due to the above and then be forced to look for alternative.

Added to we were not met to be checked in and make sure that all was to satisfactory conditions.

On taking this up with the manageress (via telephone), it was our understanding that a refund would be issued - which has been ignored to date and we have been accused of having high standards!

If being clean is having high standards then we are guilty!

“A chill and perfect place to enjoy this friendship city”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This house is a genuine place to feel the great atmosphere of Prince Albert. You get a very nice view on the surrounding moutains, you enjoy the heat of the Little Karoo while going in the swimming pool all the day long. Is this little town, everyone knows each other and you will realize it any time you go to a shop, a restaurant or in the street. Thanks to Marie Claire and Jean Luc, you will get perfect advices to visit the region, wander around or simply enjoy you holiday.
