Verified reviewgood

The cottage is in an excellent position (close to town) and the views over the Vaal river is excellent. There is however a bit of work to be done on the infrastructure of the cottage as some of the rooms are not up to standard. Just to mention a few: room doors, sliding doors, shower doors (curtains), toilet paper holders etc. All the doors cannot be unlocked and the security gate at the door at the basin in the kitchen area, is coming out of the wall. The wife got stuck in our bedroom and we had to force the door open. The paint are coming of the walls and creates a feeling of negligence from the owners side. My apologies for the negative feedback, but that is how we see it. We have enjoyed our stay, but with the issues as per feedback addressed, we will most definitely make use of this venue for future visits.
