Mantovani Guesthouse

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Jul 2017
The rooms are great, spacious, bathrooms are nice. If I had to say something about the rooms it would be that the beds are a little hard and as are the pillows. Each bedroom should be fitted out with a small hairdryer and an additional 2 point adaptor. Rooms were cleaned daily and staff great.
The meals were very homey meals but there needs to be a bit more variety in the meals in terms of those people that dont eat red meat. Owners are brilliant, very welcoming, friendly and accommodating.
Date of stay: July 2017
Room Tip: Both Mantovani one and two would be suitable, both run and owned by same people
Trip type: Travelled on business

Dear Guest,
We thank you for your valued and informative review.
We have noted your needs and would like to give feedback in order to clarify some points. If you would be so kind to send us a email to say in which rooms you were we can look at the beds. Our beds are all top range of the hospitality industry. We do have softer toppers that we can add should it not be to your liking. Please ask a next time round. Pillows are two down or feather and two for people who are allergic.
There is a notice in each room that say, should you need anything you are welcome to call reception in order to bring it to your room or to change anything that is needed.

When a booking is made and when our guests book in we ask for any allergies, either for food or special diet requirements. If it is not conveyed we would not know. We however have noted your advise which is a good point. We have changed our sign in register and added a column in order for the guests to write any requests or allergies.
The hairdryers, irons ironing boards, and two point plugs are kept at reception due to theft. We would gladly supply it on request.
In all our rooms at the bedside lamps there is a electrical socket with a two point and three point socket, for charging cell phones or what ever is needed. We have looked into this and maybe rather will move it somewhere more visible.
Thank you so much once again for your rating and valued support.

    Best Bed & Breakfast that I have stayed in Welkom. The owner and his wife are very pleasant and ensured we were well looked after. Good quality clean room with a great bed. Bathroom was also very good. Beautiful garden, would love to see it in summer. Breakfast was great with a buffet and also a hot section ordered from the kitchen. Will stay there again next time that I am in Welkom.

    We were allocated the Honeymoon suite ! All very clean and neat. Bathroom was the most exotic I have stayed in! Breakfast was a treat and the host could not have done more for us! Will definitely repeat the experience on our next trip!

    Very welcoming and helpful hosts who went out of their way to make us comfortable and assisted with directions and information.
    Lovely shower and spacious bathroom.
    Bedroom was a little cramped yet fine for our overnight needs.
    Breakfast was plentiful and a wide range on offer.
    Highly recommended for any visitors to Welkom.

    What impressed me most was their willingness to serve me breakfast at seven when they normally serve breakfast from eight on Sundays because I had to be at church at eight. I really felt at home at Mantovani and will go back there any time.
