Dit was 'n absolute voorreg om daar te kon bly en slaap, die plek is baie mooi netjies en skoon. Ons het die rustigheid geniet en die ppersoneel was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Sal definitief weer daarheen kom en dit vir ander aanbeveel. Mag julle besigheid net van krag tot krag gaan.

Baie dankie vir die positiewe terugvoer van julle verblyf die afgelope naweek.

   Ek wil net weereens vir jou dankie sê vir die goeie ontvangs, die lekker kos pakkies, en dat jy ons so mooi weggestuur het, terug huis toe.

Ons het ons verblyf by julle terdeë geniet en kon nie vir beter gevra het nie.

Selfs die 2 drywers (wie ons ook maar op die pad leer ken het), kon nie uitgepraat word oor die pragtige gasvroutjie nie :)

Ons is hoogs beïndruk met jou goeie diens, en bid die seën van die Here oor jou.

Aangename dag verder en warm groete uit Kaapstad.

   Good day

Thank you for your review. All reviews are welcome and we strife to attend to all matters raised by guests.

The high pitch sound that you heard was the noise of a fruit bat living in this area. I do agree that it sounds like a alarm, but unfortunately I do not have control over the wild life and birds staying in this area. We try to deter them, but unfortunately they do fly around.

We have different types of mattress and try to accommodate all types of guest. Some guest like a firm mattress, and some prefer them softer. I do apologize if the room that you were in, mattresses were to firm for you, but we would have gladly tried to move you to a more suitable room, if made aware of the problem.

Thank you ones again, and it was a pleasure hosting you and your daughters.

   Comment *We were warmly welcomed and the house was very clean & neat. Thank you for that.
However, the mattresses on the beds were very hard and uncomfortable. I had to sleep on the couch in the living room. There was also a very annoying sound coming from the electrical wires outside the house at the back that made it very difficult to fall asleep.

   I had a good time in Uitenhage and that was also due to the friendly reception of the Garden Lodge, everything went as smoothly as they said it would be. Very friendly staff who are very conciderate of people and their reasons for visiting. Quiet environment and a Lodge that is equiped with everything. Thank you for the help and patience. That is why I choose the Garden Lodge for my visits to Uitenhage.

   Hallo Nic

Baie dankie vir jou terugvoering. Dit is met groot vreugde dat ek kan se dat die palmboom die volgende dag "getrim" is, om die sade probleem uit te sorteer. Hulle is darm so mooi, maar aai die gemors.

Was lekker om jou hier te he.

   Hi Elise

Baie dankie vir jou vriendelike diens en goeie fasiliteite. Ek het baie lekker gebly, behalwe vir die palmboom se sade wat kort-kort op die sinkdak val en my wakker gemaak het. Sal volgende keer net 'n ander kamer verkies, mar sal graag weer daar wil oornag.

Beste groete

Thank you also for the African Tapestry CD which we are enjoying and which will remind us of you.

   Oorgretig vir die naweek kom ons toe heeltemal te vroeg by Garden Lodge..... Die vriendelikheid en gasvryheid waarmee julle ons ontvang het, het deel uitgemaak van 'n wonderlike 2 aande se verblyf. Die vroeë aankoms het ook vir ons gewys hoe deeglik julle skoonmaak..... matrasse staan in die son, beddegoed wapper in die wind en alles ruik heerlik skoon. Dankie dat julle my tasse in my kamer gesit het sodat ons vroeg by die Wildsfees kon uitkom !! Sien julle definitief weer as ek Uitenhage toe kom.

Dit is vir my net n plesier om die volgende met julle te deel.

Maar dan gebeur dit ook dat n mens so nou en dan op n plekkie afkom soos The Garden Lodge. Ons het gebel en het baie vriendelike diens oor die foon gekry en ook toe ons daar aankom het ons baie welkom gevoel. Die kamers was skoon en het alles gehad wat n mens nodig het.

Baie dankie Garden Lodge vir julle vriendelike diens en ons sal julle weer sien binnekort.

Julle moet n stunning dag he.

   Ons twee aande se verblyf was werklik aangenaam. Jul akkommodasie voldoen aan alle verwagte standaarde, is skoon, veilig en gemaklik, en jul diens en wonderlike vriendelikheid was iets baie besonders. Marolene is 'n besonderse dametjie en is 'n GROOT bate vir die Garden Lodge. Ons sal beslis weer van jul gasvryheid gebruik maak in die toekoms.
