      The place was clean and everything was communicated in advance, Even though it was snowing and cold the electric blankets provided did the job. The kitchen had everything I needed and the place and location is just perfect for a quite weekend away from the noisy city, There was no TV which suited me just fine because my visit was mainly to do self-introspection. Thanks Lathula and Zanele, will definitely visit again.

      The linen on the beds was not all cleaned . The 2 seater couch has collapsed and you sit on the piece of wood that sticks up. The cottage is advertised at having a gas heater. The gas heater has no gas bottle in it and we were apparently meant to bring our own, but we were not told to. The electric blanket on the one double bed doesn't work very well and we had both our kids getting in to our bed shivering in the middle of the night. We stayed at 3 similar types of places on our holiday and all similarly priced but this one lagged far far behind the others. Disappointed....

      Lovely stay with friends in Brich Grove, though it was cold outside our warm electric blankets kept us warm at night. We enjoyed our stay in the cottage with all the basics we required. Friendly staff that was ready to help.Thank you

      Nobody to welcome you or tell you where to get the key. Poor communication. Freezing cold insight, light switch for bathrooms are at entrance of bedroom not near bathroom. Electrical blankets need replacement. Poor place for x4 people to sit in kitchen area. X2seater bench need attention.

      The cabin is good value for money and the booking and reception experience was great. Excellent location.I would have liked a shower, and the hot water seems to be a bit finicky (you can't have both the hot and cold taps open at the same time) ... but the water was really hot.There were sufficient utensils of all sorts. The microwave does not seem to have correct glass plate, so expect a few unexpected noises there. Whilst a gas heater is available, there was no gas bottle provided — not sure if they only stock it when it gets bitterly cold or if it has to be provided by yourself. However,...
