We stayed at Klein Watervall for two nights...And it was not long enough! Ezna and Trevor were such incredible hosts, full of useful information and tips on the places we'd be most likely to enjoy in the area. One of the things which my partner and I love about travelling is meeting people local to the places we are staying in, and our conversations with Trevor (the owner) were an absolute delight. He also put us on to his son's restaurant and bar in Stellenbosch which were equally impressive.
We booked a suite which was very comfortable, the bed (King Size) was simply divine! The bathroom included a large bathtub and shower, there was plenty of wardrobe space and a small fridge, safe and tea/coffee facilities. Oh, our bedroom (upstairs) had a thatched roof too, which looked and smelled wonderful.
The setting was sublime. We woke in the morning to crisp air, gorgeous mountains and a view over autumn-coloured vines. We did not hear any noise from the nearby road at all during our stay, and Franschhoek was a quick drive away, though far enough down the road that we felt as though we were in the middle of the countryside.
Breakfast was delicious, the selection was extensive and Ezna and her team were very attentive and accommodating.
All in all we give this lodge 10 out of 10. We can't wait to come back!
