Reviews for Eight Bells Mountain Inn
Dear Owners of Eight Bells! Your place is definitely beautiful, horses, surroundings, Chalets, Rooms, lovely. BUT...sorry to be negative now: I stayed there for 4 days 3 nights: We were put into a place that looked more like Servants Quarters (Room 28). 2 large very very plain, very simple and not cosy at all bedrooms (floors and doors creak and are very worn). We were 4 Ladies of later age. 1 very small and very old, actually ugly, Bathroom. A BATHTUB with a shower, one had to climb into the Bathtub to have a shower, hallo: no handrails to hold on to ...nothing!!!....showerhead was loose or broken, and so high that one could hardly reach it, as were the strings high up for the lights!!!(one had to stand on tiptoe, they were impossible to find at night, being invisible and way to high.. one had to remain in the dark). The 2nd room at least had a Ceiling fan, but in the 2nd bedroom there was a Fan standing in a corner. Honestly!!! We had a very hot and uncomfortable night. I shared with another Lady, ok that was my own fault. BUT 4 People, 1 Bathroom and Toilet and there was not even a Key to have some privacy. One good thing: It was at least clean!!! AND even the patio was ugly, cracked cement...this put me off already when I arrived...as all the other patios are nicely tiled or bricked! The last day I walked around and to my greatest surprise: ALL other bedrooms are beautifully furnished, carpets, Aircon, modern and lovely. Then I had a look at these delightful Chalets: Same here, absolutely stunningly furnished, the Bathroom with a lovely new shower, Aircon, floor heating...lovely ornaments on the walls. Double beds.!!!NOW I would like to know: Why is this one house nr.28 so neglected, furnished with mini beds (I almost fell out the first night)... Frankly, I am definitely not used to this kind or accommodation, and I would advice anybody, DO NOT GO TO House/ROOM 28, it puts a shame onto the entire Hotel.Part of a perfect Holiday is the perfect Accommodation! The Staff on the other hand was so very lovey, friendly, helpful, it was a real pleasure to be treated so wonderfully friendly and efficiently. Thank you all!
Quaint old style family country hotel. Awesome views from extensive gardens. Lunch platters and afternoon scones
Perfect time out setting. Average food and service
Lovely setting and surroundings near Knysna. Simple food but delicious. Excellent family feel to venue. Staff are amazing
Everything was great but staff were distant. There was no warmth. Expectation of a country in is a warm welcoming feeling but we got the impression that the staff were afraid to be too friendly. My second time there but the first time was different. My husband felt that it lacked something.
5 stars for the unique, beautiful, relaxing atmosphere with view of mountains. Cappuccino
Beautiful setting... delicious breakfast outside enjoying the fresh mountain air!
Our stay here was a lovely weekend away from the craziness of the busy working world.With plenty to do and enough trail to keep the moutain bike or running enthusiast busy, you won't get bored. If relaxing is your thing, the lounge is very cozy with a snooker table nearby.The food is delicious and plenty to go around during the day. Definitely worth checking out.
Very traditional and old school. But this Place has its own charme. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The food is ok, but for me nothing special. Someone's looking for a real quiet place to relax, make the perfect match!
What a lovely stay at a great establishment! Loved the mountain setting, great staff and scrumptious meals! Well located for exploring the area.
Lovely experience for any guest. Calm surrounding, very beautiful kept gardens and lawns, but best of all, the entertainment for the kids whilst parents can enjoy any meal. Worth it to come and visit!
It is beautiful. The food is excellent and the staff are very helpful and friendly. There is so much to do, you don't want to leave the place for a minute. I will go back there as often as I can
Definitely no 4 star hotel. We had two room (standard rooms) with no shower, only a bathtub. Water is dropping, not flowing. Bathroom unrefurbished but clean. Room unrefurbished but clean. The hotel is directly located at the main street, so in our rooms it felt like sleeping in a tent at the autobahn.If you consider how hot water is produced (see photos), you understand why only cold water is considered as drinkable.Ways to the huts are outdated and require renewal.Food (Breakfast and dinner are very good. The outer location is nice. Unfortunately we had to stay two nights.Never again. Reception apologized for the rooms and explained they are in a process of renewing rooms...
No scones which is what they r allegedly famous for and also no coffee. How did u get ur 4 star rating? Other than that beautiful location and good food.
"That the hotel kept it's traditions from over 20 years ago"
Cannot flaw our stay. Thank you
We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay immensely! Very tranquil, staff is very kind and strives to make your stay a wonderful experience. 5 stars at 4 star rates. Gardens are beautiful and you can enjoy walks on the trails in the valley. The restaurant serves excellent dishes and breakfast had something for every taste. Loved it, will return the next time I'm in the area.
