Overall the guesthouse was fine but breakfasts were terrible. We were left cold sausages in the fridge and that was all. When we asked, we were told that that was all that was on offer. No effort was made to rectify the situation.
Sieht von außen gut aus, aber:
1. liegt an einer sehr stark befahrenen Kreuzung auf der Hauptstraße in der Stadt: sehr hoher Lärmpegel;
2. sehr beengteWaschbecken im Badezimmer , staubige Zimmer;
3. Teppichboden in unserem Zimmer abgetreten und extrem verschmutzt;
4. Safe stand frei zugänglich am Boden;
5. Waschbecken im Badezimmer mickrige klein - Boden und besonders die Winkel - schlechthin dreckig;
6. uns stand nur eine Handtuchgarnitur zur Verfügung;
7. Frühstück auf Sparflamme: kleinstes Jogurt, 1Scheibe Toastbrot für 2 Spiegeleier und 1 Portion Butter und Konfi;
8. Eigentümerin sehr freundlich - leider kann das über die Mankos nicht hinweghelfen.
9. Sehr guter Parkplatz für das Auto!
Wir werden nicht mehr hier einkehren.
Or to say what my Cape Town cousin says - "whoever visits de Aar - keep driving". True to form we were assigned what had been the staff quarters in its previous incarnation - a la Hanover "boutique" hotel style once again. If possible our squatter stop was even smaller than the Hanover Hellhole which is room 3. Just avoid de Aar and drive to Beaufort West which is civilisation by comparison. The owner was polite and friendly - but it didn't cut with us. She told us that there were no good restaurants in de Aar - we believe her after her "take it or leave it meal" - lamb chops and roasted vegetables. We don't eat lamb, the veggies were ok. The cappuccino was good and the dining room was beautifully decorated - just a pity about the lacklustre meals. Breakfast was pretty grim - the little yoghurts were disgusting - what's wrong with plain Greek yoghurt? My husband did enjoy the coffee though - obviously their strong point. I would have appreciated a choice of 5 fruits far more accompanied by raw nuts and a QUALITY home made muesli would have gone a long way to uplifting a very unimaginative and below average breakfast. Wild horses couldn't drag us back to what was a squalid overnight stay in Middle Earth
