We stopped at Wagon Wheel on way down to Cape Town. I will most definitely stay here again rather than in Bauford West town itself. Clean rooms - value for money. We did not have WiFi and reported it to management. They were very responsive and while they were unable to fix the lack og internet access Janet’s responsiveness and positive approach to dealing with complaints is evidence that they do appreciate the importance of customer care. If you find anything not to be what you expected then talk to them don’t keep quit about it - they can only address what they know. There is a restaurant on premises.

Clean and nice place. Pet-friendly. Good food, nice rooms. Nothing to complain. The lady at the reception - Mari or Meni (sorry do not remember exactly the name - even did dog-sitting as it was a hot day and I had to go to town and shop some stuff. So I did not want to leave the dog in the car. But as the room had to be cleaned, I had to look for another solution. So I asked the nice lady at the reception and she took care of my dog for an hour`s time. This is really outstanding service and friendliness. Whoever is on his way from the Western Cape up to the north should stay at this place.

This facility and especially the room we stayed in qualifies to be used as a gritty Motel setting in an American movie set. What you see on the booking.com website and what you get to stay in (room no 46) is worlds apart. The room was old and in need of maintenance and refurbishment. There is no TV, aircon or fridge. A small roof fan tried it's best to keep us cool in the summer heat. The bathroom sliding door needs to be rehanged every time you use it. The shower is partially closed with a shower door and a shower curtain where there used to be a shower. The ceiling is covered in mildew. If our room is the standard for all the other rooms I would recommend that you only stay there if there is no alternative in the area and it is not possible to rather drive trough to the next town.

I have stayed here a couple of times in the past 5 years.enroute to Cape Town. Always booking ahead using either booking.com or Agoda It is positioned perfectly next to the main road yet abit out of town and promises some private and quite setting. It's not amazing and for one night stay it should be enough. There are a certain things you expect though from a 3 star lodge. A comfortable bed. A place to hand a few clothes, a chair. I am very disappointed that I got a room with no chair and no cabinet or rail to hang my clothes for the next day. For almost R800 a night!! I have stayed in cheaper places and had those basic needs met. When I asked to change rooms they said I'll have to pay an extra R250. I'm sorry that's shody business to me.
