Reviews for The Elusive Camel
"The Litchi Orchard"
The place was comfortable and neat. Unfortunately the gas oven didn't work and the gas leaked so we could only use the microwave and outside braai area which wasn't helpful on the night when it rained.
This place is in a great location, but the accommodation needs a major update. Its very old and dated, but still clean and comfortable.
I forgot a very expensive jacket in one of the cupboards, contacted the manager several times without a response , Lekkeslaap said the Manager would respond as soon as she got back from overseas. I send numerous emails and made phonecalls without response from the Elusive Camel. Never heard from them
A very disappointing stay. The staff are extremely rude. I would not recommend this terrible place to anyone.
TERRIBLE!!!!! FILTHY!!!! Feels like a hole. Like you staying in a garage. An absolute rip off! There is NO EXCUSE for the lack of cleanliness.We arrived there, the electric gate was not working. The Aircon was not working. a bedroom had no ceiling fan blades. Instead a small floor fan which was DISGUSTINGLY filthy. Stains on couches and pillows. to top it off, when my son had a shower, he was covered in little blonde hairs afterwards. NONE OF US ARE BLONDES!!!YUCK!!! See photos!!!After all of this the owner refused to refund us a cent. Eventually after getting a hold of Lekkeslaap, we managed to get a refund minus 25% and a one nights stay. This negligence cost me extra accommodation costs, petrol costs, a lost day of our vacation and so forth.
Not our type of accommodation standard. Old and grubby... in serious need of an upgrade. Example: bathroom & kitchen area had no light fittings - Microwave smelled of fish, dustbin had no lid. No small rugs on floors as indicated in pictures. Sticky floors. Furniture (2 couches & chair) very dirty & old with stains all over. Linen had cigarette burn hole. Curtains had holes in. Handed in washing to the service staff - came back ironed but just as dirty. We are convinced that service staff family stayed over on New years in the empty unit next to us..... They were rowdy until 3h in the morning. Staff quarters & bathroom are right next to the one small cottage. Not impressed. . I had a depressing stay.
