              We were very disappointed in the supper which we had to pay R70 a person. The one was a chicken pattie with cabbage cut up little bit of carrot some white lettuce with three slices of tomato no starch what so ever it was really not worth R20 the the other one was same salad and three tiny little chicken fingers. Very disapointed

              We did not stay the night. Arrived in 37 degree heat.  The first words were "oh my word you have dogs `i don't know what we will do with them but we will make a plan " - that is after I confirmed on two occasions whether the accommodation is pet friendly.The experience went south from there and needless to say wasn't pleasant. We got in the car and drove on to JHB at 18:00 to arrive home at 02:00. So R900 wasted plus the time spent to get there from the N1.Caryl needs to have a serious word with the manager - customer service was non-existent and extremely confrontational as they prepared dinn...

              Lakeview is situated high above the edge of Gariep Dam and has amazing views. The accommodation was very comfortable and Murray was a most gracious host.
