10/10 Exceptional

Thank you to Ken & Monica the owners of Lincoln Cottages for the excellent service. They went out of their way to make sure our stay at their Cottage was a pleasant one. We arrived very late the evening and it was my sons birthday the next day and I forgot to get candles for his cake and I phoned them and ask is there any shop that is still open, so that I can go and buy candles. They said I need not to worry and about getting candles, they will supply me with candles the next morning with our breakfast – and so they did. Only then I found out that they went and bought the candles for us that evening – and it was late already. I’ll recommend the Lincoln Cottages to everyone I know. Thanks again

6/10 Good

OK cottage - Noice from the neighbouring room
We stayed there one night. The cottage was fine with a very nice fully equipped kitchen - Good for us as we selfcater. During the evening a lady moved in in the neighboring room and we could hear everything she said on the phone. We kindly asked her not to speak so loud as we wanted to speak. She said that she would ask the reception to get another room and some time later she left the room. The door between our room and the neighbouring room was not good or in any way tight at all. therefore, you could hear everything from the neighbouring room. The owners should get a better door! Breakfast was fine, you order in the evening.

2/10 Poor

Ridiculous 6 o'clock wake up call, bad shower.
We were out late, the staff woke us up at 6:00 AM to ask us how we want our eggs, which was ridiculous. We told them to go away, and they came back at 7:00 AM to once again ask us how we want our eggs! Eventually they brought our breakfast at 9:30, but there was only a bar and two stools for the 4 of us to eat at. We let the staff know and they came back with a small table and two chairs.. The shower was terrible, it would burn you one moment, then freeze you next. The accommodation had a notice explaining that they could not do anything about the variation in pressure since the municipality installed washers to combat the drought. (So don't expect the bathroom experience to be improved upon in the future)

4/10 Fair

A one night stop off.
Handy for the motorway but that was about all. Place needs modernising and refurbishing. No a/c or plug socket in the bedroom, polyester sheets on bed so got little sleep. Opened the window to try to get some air but once one dog barked, there were twenty!! Grubby bathroom and shabby decor. Photos on web must have been taken years ago. Staff we met were pleasant. Steepest driveway I've ever seen. A lot of steps to get to accommodation so not suitable for disabled. Would not stay again as got very little sleep.

maisonettes indépendantes dans le jardin
Nous avons fait une étape d'une nuit (a l'aller et au retour) dans ce charmant Guesthouse, où nous avons été accueillis très chaleureusement. Petits bungalows répartis dans un beau jardin....tout le confort, très bien entretenu, petits déjeuners "livrés" le matin sur la terrasse. Une voiture est nécessaire pour se rendre au centre ville et environs de Pietermaritzburg......à découvrir et y revenir ....
