I was put in a twin bed room...with no possibility to join the two beds into one...although the host did offer me a chance to move to another property (apparently owned by the same owners), but I thought am only there for one night, so I will stick it out! That is the only thing I did not enjoy about my one night stay...otherwise everything else was great. Breakfast was amazing. Thanks so much!

Stayed over for a night on route to Cape Town and doing business outside of town.
I had half a toilet seat, bad water pressure. An uninformed manager and poor staff.
They even moved me to a different guest house trading under the same name. Very modern, called Upper Room. But that was NOT why I booked the place. Gave me fish cakes for breakfast, even though I orderd a vegetarian meal.

We booked a night’s accommodation at the Rose of Sharon (check-in on December 18th and check-out December 19th) as an overnight’s stop on our journey down to the Eastern Cape.

We arrived in Aliwal North at 16:45 which was within 15 min of our indicated time of arrival of 17:00. On arrival we found the facility locked and no one present on the premises. After at least 5 calls to the indicated and provided number, I finally left a message asking for a call back (more on this to come)

In the interim, we contacted The Nest B&B where we have previously stayed to see if they could help us out in an emergency which they could fortunately.

On Tuesday, December 20th I finally got a return call to the message I left on the contact number for the Rose of Sharon.

What followed can only be described as a pathetic excuse for an apology and no effort made to try to rectify the situation.

Fortunately the Nest B&B were able to9 accommodate us at short notice!

It is by far the best place I have been during my travels so far. Their suits are spacious and neat. The is proper planning for most eventualities of our present time. I will request my company to book me at The Rose of Sharon should there be a need for me to stay in Komani.
