Reviews for Dassie Paleis
This is a place where you can forget all your problems and leave behind your back, good place and the admin are good and friendly
This was the freakiest place I've ever stayed in South Africa. The photos on the website do not portray an accurate picture of the entire location. Bring your own towels, bedding, and doom. Don't plan to have a successful braai or be able to sit on any of the benches provided if you were to braai. Wear a hoodie to bed and be prepared for a less than 1 star stay.
Well done Thebogo is a star employee and agreat Host will visit again and promote far and wide.
Neat and clean wooden huts. Easy access to town. As much as they are pet friendly be reminded that between dassies and rabbits there are risks. Don't expect luxury but do expect friendly hosts
"We enjoyed the fact that the place is secluded and quiet and you are just surrounded by nature."
The rooms are warm with a heater and you enjoy watching DSTV and the bed is comfortable.However, the only hustle is that the toilet is too close too the kitchen and there's no door in between, which make it unhygienic.
People nice but place needs to upgrade
Friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere, peace and quiet.
Had a lot of fun. The place its nice and have a lot of activities.
WOW What a dump.. Dirty swimming pool with a broken pump, grass that is more turf (peat soil) than grass, workers constantly around with spades and wheelbarrows, digging, chopping, sawing, etc. making it uncomfortable to be in a swimsuit and piles of rubble all around. Dont ever go here (I had to give it one star to be able to add this post. )
Good service when we arrived. But at the end they refused to give us back our deposit because key was left in door, we left at 5am and the office was still closed. Although the lady said there was no damages she still wont refund. Very bad service, this place wont ever see us again. Very bad and unprofessional.
When you arrive the owner will be friendly and all but once you checked in, he will start being funny and so arrogant. Our last day he accused us of stealing two teaspoons, and we had to wait for him to come back from church in order for us to check out. It is not a nice place to go and relax. We had a bad experience
I booked here in at the backpacker rooms, there is a kitchen with appliances to use to make of warm up food and abolition facilities.
The accommodation is first class. It's 5 min. away from Brits Mall. The chalets have a TV and bathroom with shower a basin and braai facilities. They have open view HD. The 2 bed chalet is fitted with a fridge, microwave and 1 plate stove. The natural trees and rocks are still in their original place. There is a lot of birds and dassies. Each chalet has its own parking bay. There is a play park for children. Mostly it is an ideal place for a quiet get away.
It has not been the first time we had an event at Dassie Palace. Each time the food was amazing, from finger snacks to meals. The venue itself is beautiful, between the rocks and big trees. Ideal for any event inside or outside. Their service is great, well-priced for a hassle-free event. Thank you to the staff and management, it's a real honor to visit your venue each time knowing everything will be taken care of.
