We stayed for one night. Personnel very friendly and accommodating, but the furniture seems to come out of Noah's ark. I don't think this place has seen any upgrades for the past 25 years. We paid an affordable rate, but we were very disappointed in what the flat looked like. With the power outage combined with load shedding we had no water.

Rules, rules, rules and more rules. Even the roll of toilet paper was marked, which means one of 2 things: either they do not trust their staff or they want to check how much toilet paper you are using! There are so many things to put you off that you actually look past the few positives and struggle to think what their are. The lawn and garden area is lovely, the hippos come and graze in front of your door, you can pack eight people into the compact space of the unit, which makes it a good family option. The manageress and housekeeper are friendly and boy, do I feel for them because clearly the problem at this place is the owner.

First time we have stayed there. We were pleasantly surprised by the staff friendliness. The unit was nice with beautiful views and surface clean with everything you would need. Equipment is outdated but functional. Also make sure you bring your own cleaning liquid, cloths and sponges.

However, there are alot of 'rules' and some do not make any sense whatsoever. You get a feeling that the owners are trying to chastise naughty children. Which is extremely off putting.

Overall we only required a place to sleep at night (2 night's). We would go back but not sure if it would be for an extended visit.

We stayed at Stokkiesdraai before and after this visit they will never see us again. They phone you for a R300 deposit after you payed in full. But fail to tell you that they have water problems. Fans don't work, lights don't work. Dstv has one chanel. They include cleaning services but no one came out because of Covid.. but failed to tell us this when she phoned for her R 300 deposit. We have to check out @9 which is a first for us, we are used to 10. But when we pitched at the office a little earlier there was no one . The manager was very rude, and had a lot of excuses even after all her demands.. For a business that is struggling she is definitely not trying..Horrid bathroom, I had to go and buy domestos to try and clean it a little...filthy rooms and no service. They will not be seeing us again.

in general, very nice and clean. Need some maintenance, but taking the tourism situation after covid in mind, not to bad.

Guest would feel a lot safer it they would install a security gate. Major concern!

Though we were looking for inexpensive dorm accommodation, St Lucia is a bit lacking in that department. We came to Stokkiesdraai on the very nice recommendation of a man down the street. Checking out the dorm room (a side room open to the living room/kitchen area with no doors) we agreed as it seemed to be our best option. The whole room was dated, but functional and the only real complaints are terrible mattresses and an odor of old smoke (as if from years of smoking in what was once a private apartment) Thing went downhill after that - R300 key deposit (WHAT?!) check out by 9am (or R200/hour you are late) and a printed list of items in the "dorm" and the charges you would incur should you steal or break these items. I understand policies needing to be in place to safeguard your possessions, but NO OTHER HOSTEL (or hotel) has ever made me feel more criminal or like a juvenile delinquent.

The entire approach is "assume the worst in people". At 8:55am on the day we were leaving, as we were packing our things to put in the car, an employee came up to remind us of the "booking time" and after we then ran about frantically trying to get out of the dorm, I went to return the key at 9:10. I was told I was making them late. For what?! We had been the only 2 people to check in since we arrived 2 days before.

So if you like being treated like thieving scum, by all means stay there. Otherwise, perhaps look into the other options in the area.
