Donkerhoek is an Afrikaans word for Dark Corner. Far from being a dark corner, Donkerhoek is actually a pleasant place where we held the 50th birthday festivities for my brother last weekend. With well cut lawns and flora, the establishment made an immediate impression on me. The hall given to us for the party fitted our plans like a glove. With its own air conditioners,Projector and sound system, it is an ideal venue for any party planner. Regrettably that is where the accolades end.The lodge has over 16 beds and we had booked at least four of them and referred our guests to them for accommodation.Given that our party was to go on until morning,we would simply move up from the venue to our rooms.It was not to be!Midway through our preparations, a lady from reception called for keys to our rooms and pointed out that the rooms were booked out to the police despite having taken our payments and confirming a week before the event. So bitterly disappointed were we that we sought our refunds. The alternative venue they tried to take us to was no more than a school dormitory with oil-based paint still smelling. Naturally we declined and sought succour elsewhere. Fortunately, help came and we woke up at our friend's residence to reflect on the bad treatment received from Donkerhoek whose dark corners had clearly come to the fore. Pity as the party venue was a run away success and the party a blast!
