a few things that could be better

Review of Old House Lodge
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Apr 2022
had a great stay before at cottage outside and rooms at end of house closest to parking lot. this time we stayed in last two rooms on right hand side of house. basin in room 6 wouldn't empty water - plug broken. no milk for coffee. alarm not set properly and made beeping noise for long period keeping us awake. was given weird welcome where lady at desk had the owner speaking on speaker phone and the main subject was what we should be paying - seemed inappropriate that we could and it seemed there was a problem. we feel the rate should have included breakfast. no option that i saw on website to have breakfast at an extra rate (i may well have missed it). the fridge in room 9 is a wine cooler fridge which doesn't function as a normal fridge as i was told it would. bathroom floor in number 6 seems unfinished and unsightly. last stay was much better.

    Reviewed 15 April 2022 via mobile

    Working from time to time in Beaufort West, I always drove past the guest house a d admired the building. Beautiful arhitecture and design. Have tried once or twice to get a booking. This weekend I was lucky and disappointed. The welcome was grim, breakfast was served by staff that also does not want to be here (we have something in common). I could not get coffee at breakfast (need to pay extra). If you just need a bed, go for it. If you need homely service, not going to find it here

    Stay at hotel was disappointing. Room was really small and advertised garden view was a 4 square foot window looking onto the road. Bathroom was also very small. Overpriced for what it was. Otherwise hotel was fine.

    We had a good stay at Old House Lodge.

    The service was excellent we received from them. And the assistance was great when we needed it.

    However, the fridge was very miniature - We could not even fit 2 of our things in the fridge, and it was warm on arrival. It would have been nice to have a cold fridge, and a bit bigger one to fit at least 2 cooldrinks.

    Overall it was a good experience.

    Our stay at the Old House Lodge was lovely. We arrived, hot and bothered, but check in was a breeze and the splash pool was a lifesaver. Michelle and Sharon were the perfect hosts in that they immediately accommodated our request for an exchange to an outside room - to make it easier for the smoker!! Breakfast was super. The only challenge was the mosquitoes outside. We will definitely be back

    Reviewed 30 December 2021

    We booked and paid almost 3 months in advance . We requested a specific room that we had stayed in previously . This was noted under "Special Requests" on the Booking.Com booking sheet . As I received no reply , I emailed my request for a second time on 16 November , 2021 . Once again , no reply . Om my arrival , I made my request known to the lady on duty . I was informed that on that very day , the room I had requested had been hired to a new client who had not yet arrived and had not even paid a deposit . I was informed that the room had been promised that day , and could not be changed . No effort was made to sort out my request . Obviously , existing clients who book and pay in advance have no value to this host . What a poor and stupid business decision .
