          A desk and chair for work on the road would be useful.

          Ons het heerlik geslaap. Fasiliteit basies maar is voldoende vir oornag en sal verseker aanbeveel.

          The room was clean but very very basic. It's not worth the price and we won't stay there again.

          Nothing fancy. Just a bed & shower. Not worth the full price though... For R400, I expect breakfast to be included.
