Over all its a beautiful place but just a few important things really spoiled my stay at the accodation. Firsty the booking process they are not organized everyone that came through had an issue with their booking even after payments once they've receive the proof of payment they don't respond whats so ever. They have a manually operated gate which was a first for me at a guesthouse, there was no hot water on their shower and that was just really pathetic. We had no access to an iron and ironing board meaning Sunday we checked out in wrinked clothing. I hope they will improve on these major issues I've pointed out. Thank you

Price is good. Television should be flush mounted against the wall or its location changed. Banged my head very hard against it. Don't like the open shower, water all over the bathroom floor makes it slippery and dangerous. Also need more light, difficult to shave. One of the lights it the bathroom also not working. Need more visible staff or communication at the venue. River path indicated but closed.

We had our Christmas party with work colleagues. The place needs a little maintenance and refurbishment. They also do not have a swimming pool in the property ,so it kind of limited our fun. The staff was friendly and the place is spacious and has a patio with braai stand.

Booked via AirBnb. Was expecting privacy as we booked entire house. Got:
1. A tenant living in a house on the property.
2. A public park that is loved by locals.
It was New Year's but we were still expecting some semblance of privacy and quiet as was advertised. Instead we got people using the fence as toilets, the view blocked by the tenant's laundry (they were lovely, btw), and watching police drive up and down for two days trying to disperse the parties. Apparently that park is very popular and the noise we heard was comparable to most weekends.
The staff were wonderful though. And we made the best of it but I was very disappointed. Also, the owner did not bother to message me back at all. Her lack of response was in very bad taste.
I wouldn't recommend staying here at all.

Upon arrival we were very excited for our year end function to say thanks and celebrate our accomplishments for the year, I was the last to get my bags from my vehicle as it started to rain. I went and put my things down in my room which was located next to the house keeper as I felt this would be the safest option during my stay being the only other female on the trip. I was in and out the entire time as we were playing music from speakers on charge on the room. My team had the entire house booked so it was only us, the house keeper and her children/friend/family in her room as well as the groundsman on the property. When getting ready to go to bed, I noticed my handbag with my belongings was gone. I didnt think to much of it, as I though maybe I left it somehwere in the house or even took it back to my car. The following day when we were packing up, I reported it stolen. We searched everywhere and found nothing, the manager of the property came and they checked cameras with no findings. I then received a message on Facebook stating someone had picked my my ID in the park on the golf estate the following morning. This means whoever came into the property obviously had access and wouldnt be seen as an intruder on the camera. None of my team went to the park. Unfortunately even the person who found my ID said it sounds suspect. Very sad ending to a great year. I am just happy I didnt walk into the intruder while they were in my room.

A few couples stayed overnight after doing river rafting. It is not situated close enough to walk to the restaurants in town but it is a very short drive so not a big deal. Rooms are decent with good showers and facilities. Just arrange for geysers to be switched on prior to arrival if you plan to shower when you arrive. Small but adequate bar fridge is also well priced.

A tranquil setting on the riverside, hearing the roaring of the water over the rocks is so relaxing, one forgets their problems.
My friendly well mannered Jack Russell enjoyed her easy walk around the very well manicured gardens.
Just sitting under the trees listening to the birds was pleasant in itself.
The accommodation was comfortable and clean.
A very well kept and managed accommodation

On the bank of the Vaal river, with a large lawn.
A great place to overnight on a long journey, or use as a resting place to visit the country, the Vredefort Dome, and the interesting shops in Parys.
The hostess is very friendly and accommodating.
We traveled with 2 Saint Bernards, and had a lovely stay-over. We decided to extend for another night and took a break of the road.
The guest house have various size on-suite rooms available, well equipped and pleasantly decorated.
