3 out of 5 stars
I do think they could invest in a better DSTV package. Their current package or bouquet is very poor - I think it is the worst one Mnet has on offer and does not do the Guest House any favours.The breakfast was very good as was the fireplace in the room
The SafariNow website lists Highland Rose as having 15 rooms,sleeping 38 guests, and offering self catering. Wrong. 4 rooms sleeping max 14. There is a kettle and a tiny microwave, no cutlery, crockery or any basic catering equipment. I booked and confirmed the 2-bedroom 'Fountain View' cottage for myself, my husband and 14 year old son. We arrived to find we had been put into 2 separate rooms. When I complained I was told that Safarinow had provided wrong info. The staff's solution - to put an extra bed into my room - was not satisfactory. The DSTv setup included none of the Mnet channels... see more
We arrived to the smell of sewage being pumped out, the staff where to busy arguing amongst one another in zulu to actually greet us properly and made us feel very unwelcome. We where then showed to a room that was not the room I booked online, they then informed us that the room we booked was given to other guests!!! Nevermind that... the room that was presented to us was so dirty, stains all over the carpets and bedding that looks so old and worn out. such a dissapointemnt to drive so far for that, in the end we did not stay over. Ive been to plenty guest houses and for that price I expected... see more
Television not working, message from dstv to pay invoice before 8 october. I stayed on 1 november. no tea at the coffee and tea tray.no tissues in the tissue box. only soap in bathroom,no shampoo and others. Asked when they were graded for the last time by the grading council, answer we guit the grading program. If graded now it would not get its 4 stars, also bad from safarinow that they don't check the grading on the TGCSA website!
The breakfast was superb and outstanding, just a pity the little things can leave a negative impression like torn bath rugs, no loose/extra blankets, tap fittings that are broken, no milk or proper and enough coffee - 3 sachets of Ricoffy and Cremora, really? You'd expect to get proper and enough coffee at a 5 star? Also, we arrived just after 5 pm, and wasn't even welcomed by the host - never saw them, and was left on our own on the premises for the night!
