Reviews for Gooseberry Lodge Guest House
Nice quiet place
Great host! We had a lovely stay
Simply the best vintage
Dry wall connecting from family room meant you could hear ever argument had next door. Mattresses need to be turned around after two nights as they were terrible to sleep on. The two rooms behind the family rooms (RM 3+4) allows for every noise to be heard as well.Host didn't even invite us in when we arrived (although we stayed for 6 nights!) Out of courtesy while we waited on our rooms to become available. Perhaps a cultural issue? We sincerely hope that this was not a cultural prejudice that was manifested in this manner.Cleaning/maintenance staff , Joseph and Miriam are extremely helpful though.
Enjoyable stay with the most friendly service.
A warm welcome. Rooms are filled with atmosphere and comfortable .
Safe parking. Friendly and warm service. Highly recommended.
Very good value for money. Spacious rooms, warms and cosy at an amazingly affordable price.
Lovely quaint place. Be carefull of the doble storey units got very steep stairs
We absolutely loved our time in Bethlehem, and were very thankful to Gooseberry Lodge for accommodating our early wake up call. Thanks for everything, we will definitely come back to visit.
"Pleasant stay "
Gooseberry Lodge was easy to find; the owner called on the morning we were to book in to see what the ages of our children were so that they could accommodate accordingly. It was winter and really cold but upon arrival the heaters were on in the rooms. We received chocolates on our pillows and sherry to warm us up. We booked breakfast, which was most affordable and delicious. They even wiped down our vehicle and washed the windows before we proceeded with our journey. Overall a good experience with friendly and welcoming staff. We will definitely go again as this is not the first time we have stayed in Bethlehem; but most definitely the most enjoyable.
