Arrived late evening and got two hotel rooms without booking (no self-catering units were available). Strangely my friend and I were asked to be quiet as international guests were booked in for the sardine run. We were lucky to get food before the restuarant closed at around 8pm. The rooms were small but adequately furnished however, it was difficult to move in the tiny shower-rooms. After turning in early to start tour first thing in the morning, I was rudely awaken at 10.30pm by the warring couple next door. At first I thought they were actually in my room but realised we were separated by plaster board! Hearing every Afrikaan word, but understanding nothing that was being said, I shouted that I could hear every word being said. After a peaceful moment, they couple resumed their argument. After the couple started pushing each other around I shouted that I had to be up early and demanded they stop arguing. Fortunately, after five minutes they stopped but I was woken extremely early when again, I thought someone had entered the room only to find it was the arguing couple rising. I complained to the member of staff that had checked us in. He did not apologise or offer a reduction other than to state that the hotel room walls are very thin and not suitable for more than one nights stay! So he clearly, did not find anything wrong with guests missing a nights sleep, despite paying R440 per night per person!
