nice place, rooms are serviced daily. The fact that the rooms are attached to the residential house was a challenge as the kids could not access the swimming pool as the owners were entertaining their visitors in the pool area during the time give for the guests.

Response from NonnieBeneke, Owner at Acquila Guest House
Responded 13 Jul 2010
This guest was just very hard to please. He is the only person to ever post a bad review, but let me respond to his post anyway. 1) When they arrived, I showed them our 3 star rated property, as rated by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. We are inspected every year and we would surely have lost our stars if our property was in the condition that he has described in his review. 2) The electricity was tripping due to Eskom having load shedding at that time, something that was completely out of our control. 3) The windows were all getting new glass panes and we did explain to the guest that the work had not been finished and that some of the windows would therefore not open. He was not upset by this at the time. 4) The iron was borrowed to the client from our private home, because he did not have one, so it is not true that the irons in our units are unsafe, as this was a special arrangement. Please READ OTHER REVIEWS on the internet about our guest house and you will see that our guest house always receive good reviews. Some people are just hard to please.....
