When I specifically booked a self catering cottage, I was given a single room with no kitchen facilities and only when I complained, was I moved to a self catering unit the next day. The accommodation is showing signs of being run down with not one door or sliding door (including locks) operating efficiently. Sliding doors require brute force to open. I was also very surprised to get a notice that for self catering staff don't wash dishes at all. TV channels were very limited with most blurred and unwatchable. The first night in the single room was unbearable due to a very strong disinfectant...

The place has old furniture the refrigerator is liking, initially we were supposed to get breakfast however they told us they do not do it on holidays even after the holidays there was no breakfast for 5 days of our stay, the other twin beds are on the sitting room. No DStv at all.

I reserved my accomodation at Petla's place way in advance. Paid in full, confirmed a week before. When we got there, the owner of Petla's Place said sorry he gave our room to someone else!!! He found us a tiny 2 bedroom place, they added one more bed because I reserved a 3 bedroom. None of my requiements where met!! I am extremely unhappy!!

Advertised as Self Catering, sorry not my room. Hardly a microwave. It was so cold and wet, and no heater or air-conditioner in the room. 2 single unpleasant beds. The smallest fridge you can get, only one bottle of wine and a litre of my appletisser went in and I even forgot them in there. Not impressed with my room.
