Reviews for Mountain Rock Cottage

"Mountain Rock Cottage"

There was no signboard to the cottage. On arrival, we found the cottage had not been cleaned after the last guests vacated. The fridge and microwave were spattered with food, left over food in the fridge. The bedding was filthy although they had been straightened. I don't think the bathroom mat has ever been washed The owner by his own admission said the previous guests had promised to clean the cottage. Only 2 Mozambicans on the property who don't speak English. The cottage looks out onto their old caravans in which they live. The owner did not show up although he said he would sort it out. Booked for 2 nights but stayed only 1 night because of the state of the cottage. Obviously there is no supervision there or no one cares.

Establishment's response

Dear Chris vd Merwe

First of all, sorry about the "state" in which you found the cottage, my apologies.

Just a few comments.

We did not fit any signboards to the cottage due to the fact that we keep it secluded and out of reach of the general public to ensure privacy to the guests utilizing the cottage. Co-ordinates are available on the website.

After inspection I found that the cottage was cleaned after the previous guests. All beds have various sets of bedding and get changed as soon as guests depart.

The food in the fridge was left by previous guests and they instructed the cleaners not to remove it as they were returning the morning of your arrival to remove it.

If you investigated further you would have found a new wooden house on stilts that was built for my 2 "Mozambicans".

I would also appreciate it if some dignity will be shown to other persons belongings and not leave the cottage in a turmoil because you are not happy.

We have various guests that keep on returning, from Gauteng, the Lowveld, Sabi Sands etc. and in the few years that the cottage is operational never had a bad review.

In future please do not check-in if you are not completely satisfied with accommodation, please forward me your bank details and I will reimburse for the 1 night that the cottage was not utilized.

review by Chris vdMerwe, South Africa


Vir iemand wat die plaas lewe en stilte geniet is dit 'n fantastiese plek om te gaan rus. Huis was baie skoon en netjies, alles is daar wat jy nodig het en ons het heerlik gerus.
