A couple of us Dads were up in PMB as our sons were racing karts at Idube raceway and stayed for 4 days. We each had our own little cottage (father and son in each) which was perfectly adequate for our needs.
Well equipped, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great and all facilities very good.
Would definitely stay again.

The furniture looks a bit tired, the cottages are a good size, the check in is across the road and you have to drive to the other side, the breakfast is served on time as per your request. I found the place adequate for a stop over though a bit away from the city centre, so its excellent for a quiet time.

Responded 13 Oct 2016
Dear Liyabee, Trust you are well. We are glad that breakfast was on time for you. The check in process is stated on your invoice and confirmation letter - we are a very big property therefore the entrance to our cottages is different to our reception entrance. Which cottage did you stay in? As all of our cottages are very modern and have great furniture as well as flat screen TV's on the wall. Nonetheless, we trust you enjoyed your stay and we hope to have you back here again soon :) Kind Regards, Dominique

We booked our stay from the 17th to the 19th of January at the Nederburg cottage as an early birthday present to my son who was turning one on the 22nd of January. We were provided with everything we needed and Caroline was such a gem as were the rest of the staff. The gardens were beautiful, the cottage itself was spotless and so comfortable. A cot was provided that we never got to use because my son refused to sleep in it but thank you for that as well. A black book was left on the table with everything from the history of the cottages, emergency numbers, directions, restuarants and attractions nearby, etc. I really liked that bit of detail as we are not from the area so it was helpful to us. From the onset we could see that alot of thought went into every little detail. The pool was beautiful and Chubby is such a darling. We never got to meet the owners but maybe next time. It was an awesome start to my sons first birthday.

Regards
Dian and Argaish

Very unwelcoming reception with poor service from the manager. Worst experience ever and even the staff were perplexed at how badly the manager treats guests. Not only does she swear at guests, but she mixed up the booking for three people to make it only for two. No apology was issued

My Family had been with Lincoln Cottages on and off for about two years. Had we not been having the kind of service we look forward to, we would not have been coming back again, and again. Services are good. The ambient is great. We always feel at home. It is highly recommended.

I booked the Chateau cottage in December, this was the worst stay I have ever had. Owners are extremely rude and arrogant. They tried extorting money from us when my 5 year old daughter vomited on the bed, and they claimed that we dirtied their already filthy mattresses. They wanted extra money from us. They even attempted to physically assault us, a bunch of hooligans. Be warned and stay away from this destination as a holiday!

Response from MONICA P, Owner at Lincoln Cottages
Responded 07 Jan 2016
We at Lincoln Cottages always strive for perfection, and customer’s experiences with us (good or bad) remain a priority for us. If (as in this instance) the experience was not up to the customers expectations, we look at ourselves first and see if anything we did or said inhibited our customer from enjoying their stay with us. However in this case, the Management team behaved impeccably in defusing a volatile situation that had arisen do to the customer initially refusing to pay for damages that they had caused to our property. Eventually they saw reason and compensated us for our loss, however this did not prevent them from posting this review, the contents of which were obviously influenced by their initial refusal to affect compensation to ourselves.

From the night I arrived the owners welcomed me with warm and we're very accommodating. The place is wonderful and the staff is warm and very polite. The kindness from everyone in this heavenly place is heavenly. It's a paradise I will never forget. Took me long to write this review but I had to because every word I meant. Regards Levis.
