We slept okay in the room with its bright pink wall, but really missed a chair to sit on and a table to sit at and eat. The seating outside we had to share with the next door guests, so we ate in the dark. Utensils in the kitchen nook very few and not up to standard. Only two glasses! I am sorry, but I cannot recommend this address.

Owners friendly. Rooms  Basic. kitchen facilities ok.  However only outside table as seen in photo No tables and chairs inside and there was a rain storm. No where to go except  bed. Mattress sadly had seen better days one  slept on springs. Distance from car park too far.Could do with a revamp. and create better facilities

When we got there and tried to get in to Fish River cottages no one was answering the phone. My husband had to climb over the wall to get in. It was adequate for one night but the shower wasn't very clean and there were only 2 towels that didn't smell very clean. We ended up using our beach towels. The braai still had ash in it from the previous person. All in all it was ok for the one night we stayed there but I wouldn't stay there again.

Room was dark and stuffy with the only window in the bathroom. Spider webs in the bathroom. Light didn't work in the bathroom (hence the spider webs)and only one of the bedside lamps worked. Cold water tap in the sink didn't work either. TV has maybe 2 channels. The maid walked in on us in the morning without even knocking.
