The highlight of Klein Waterval is that it feels like a home away from home. The personalised service and warmth of Roz, Trev and Ezna are wonderful. Their knowledge of the area and recommendations on places to go were fantastic. They even made bookings for the top restaurants on our behalf. Klein Waterval provides the perfect combination of mountain retreat with access to Franschhoek's town buzz. My husband and I began our honeymoon there, and were extremely happy. The swimming pool was also a big plus as a place to unwind! We would love to visit again.

We loved the setting overlooking the beautiful mountains and the vineyards. Our room was superb with an entire lounge downstairs and a king size bed upstairs with the traditional wooden ceiling. The rooms are away from the main building so they are quiet.There was a cosy honesty bar by the main property where you could read or chat. Breakfast was great and the service by the owners was really attentive with plenty of advice on what wine farms to visit in the area. There is a nice little pool with shady areas under trees with loungers to hang out in after a long day tasting wine ! Wish we had more time there...

Spent a few days over Christmas and felt really looked after by the owners. Charming place that was really cozy with terrific hospitality. Would definitely go back. It's a bit far from town so you need a vehicle.

This was my 5th visit to Klein Waterval and we enjoyed it again! The quality and experience of the rooms, the pool, breakfast and honesty bar is very consistent. The property is well maintained and over the years we saw some small changes such as new art on the walls in the room and breakfast area which makes it interesting. The owners and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and helpful to get us booked into the restaurants we favour. This time we stayed in room 8 which has a high ceiling & thatched roof inside. We enjoyed the lavender in front of our room which was freshly trimmed and spread a soft fragrance in the evening sun. Altogether a very relaxing, tranquil and serene place to stay.

We have just returned from a delightful stay at Klein Waterval riverside lodge. The position is wonderful, between Stellenbosch and Franschoek, just off the main road, with incredible views across their own vineyard towards the mountains.
The owners are very welcoming and extremely helpful and made our stay really great.
We had two charming rooms in converted farm buildings which were very comfortable. We really enjoyed the tasty breakfast and the swimming pool.
We will be back- for longer next time! Thank you for a lovely stay.
