Cape Town Central, South Africa

We booked, confirmed, paid deposit and phoned owner on the day to let them know that the traffic was heavy but that we would be there. We were en route from Cape Town to Kruger National Park. Upon arrival the property (about 4 to 5 units) appeared deserted! We phoned the number displayed and was told that the security guard would come and open for us. Needless to say, after waiting a while, we phoned again and the owner/manager arrived and showed us to the pleasantly appointed ‘Gecko Cottage’.
ACCOMMODATION: Gecko Cottage is a self catering unit consisting of a bedroom, kitchen, lounge area and bathroom with bath (no shower). There is a TV (limited channels), fridge (which had not been switched on prior to our visit) and what seemed like a fully equipped kitchen. The unit was altogether pleasant and comfortable. There is onsite parking for visitors and although the safety gate was broken, we did not feel that our fully laden car was any risk.
BREAKFAST: The staff on duty tried their best but unfortunately did not quite make the grade! The gentleman who had showed us our unit the night before had said that we must settle the outstanding balance of our account with a staff member who was not there that morning. The breakfast staff, once again, did their best!
GENERAL: Lavender Place is in a residential area not too far from the river but all the restaurants that Parys has to offer are within a 2km distance.
Parys is often referred to as the Riviera of the Free State being situated on the Vaal River. We found the town to be run-down, the river full of rubbish and the so called ‘resorts’ to be in an appallingly run down state. Such potential gone to waste!

We stayed at Lavender Place for two nights. It is the perfect home away from home.

We chose the Riverbend Cottage. It was very cosy, clean and neat.

I will definitely choose Lavender Place again, should we pass through Parys.

This was our second visit to Lavender Place... And last. We were there pre-covid and the place has become neglected and dirty. We had no toilet seat and an aircon with no remote. We were told to ask other units to use theirs. There is a braai, but not one bowl or tongs to braai with.
It's very sad that this once quaint place hasn't recovered from the impact of Covid. 😢

Stayed in the Gheko room. Very spacious with all that you require. Very close to all the main shops. Room was very neat and clean and the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Property is well kept lovely gardens. Value for money was very good :)

Tired and looking for just a bed the Lavender Place was just what we were looking for. It was clean and we slep like babies. There were small little surprises and the hostess was very friendly and helpful.

This place is close to the main area of Parys, but a few blocks away from the main road, so we had a quiet night. The place is adequately equipped and relatively new and modern, although they can focus on small details to improve, like some of the taps not working, and the hose was left in the garden path for everyone to trip over. But this is a nice place to stay if you are passing through for the night or want to do self-catering.
