Very attentive host (Deon). Room very pleasant and adequate for one night. Directions were a bit misleading as we approached from opposite direction - but we found it OK and it is centrally positioned for the town.

When arriving on the date of my reservation, AND DEPOSIT PAID, I was told that I was not booked with them. After +-10-minutes they came back and showed me in a book I was booked for the 22 Feb and not 24th. Altough I had my reservation number: 10790723, and reservation dates on hand, in mail from SafariNow.They did then get me a place at a different house of a family member, of which I did not make use.IN SHORT, SAFARI-NOW & GOOSEBERRY MUST SORT THIS OUT, IF THE FAULT IS WITH GOOSEBERRY I RECOMMEND YOU TAKE THEM OF YOUR LIST.I ALSO REQUEST THAT YOU REFUND MY DEPOSIT?

Not at all. When I arrived Deon opened the room for us. Oh what a nice room,double bed with a single bed,flat screen,fridge and a microwave,corner bath and after an hour I heard that I was in a wrong room taken to the back a room without a microwave and I brought food that I wanted to warm up since I came late. The was that old model round TV and a shower and for R775 I wasn't impressed

Gooseberry Lodge Guest House transferred our overnight booking to Forget-Me-Not Guest House in Bethlehem, and we were very well-looked after there by the friendly and hospitable owner. We had safe off-road parking, and our accommodation was very comfortable and pleasant. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and were provided with another appetizing breakfast, so felt ready for our next part of journeying down to Cape Town. We can recommend this convenient and easy to find guest house. Ron and Lynda McMartin            25th Sept 2015
