          Privacy for the bathroom (like a sliding door) could be improved. However it was a good experience

          We enjoyed our stay. Pieter was a gracious and extremely helpful host, going out of his way to assist us with a tyre problem as well. We found his staff to be courteous and efficient. The meals at the Lord's Kitchen were excellent. We will and have already been back.

          Griet, die juweel, wat ons so vriendelik ontvang en behandel het, was 'n 'hit'. Baie dankie. Persoonlike aandag deur Pieter was ook baie lekker. Ons het heerlik gekuier, baie dankie.Een opmerking: sal volgende keer vir kamer vra aan voorkant van gastehuis. Was bietjie gehinder deur mense wat oorkant die straat woon.
