Verified reviewgood

I have inserted a "good" impression as there is no "not applicable" option. I arrived at the guest house to discover that my overlanding vehicle would not fit into the driveway. There is an overhead bar at the entrance far too low for any overlanding vehicle. The only options were for me to unpack my roof rack (not an option when leaving at 0500 the next morning) or park in the street (also not an option for security reasons). They transferred us to another one of their guest houses in town. Bang went our idea of having sundowners on the edge of the orange river. Moonriver looked very nice and the other guest house was not close to the being the same standard, even though the manager was very helpful and friendly and the kids enjoyed all the farm animals. I will use alternative accommodation next time.
