I stayed one night. It was such a lovely place I wish I'd stayed longer. The room exceeded my expectations, the breakfast was plentiful, the views were stunning - and the people friendly. I would change nothing.

We spent just one night in the lovely lodge. The manager welcomed us upon arrival and invited us to a welcome drink. We also found complimentary wine in the room. The Lodge has a veranda on the river which is absolutely gorgeous where the guests can relax, have breakfast, enjoy the welcome drink, etc. The manager is really helpful, she...

Probably the best bed I had during my trip through Garden Route in South Africa. The room is so confortable and the staff and owner was so gentle with us. The Oudtshoorn Village is a place to return to. Thanks
