“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We stayed in the Langeberg House and we loved it, very spacious and clean. Hettie was a lovely host and the breakfast we had was lovely. The dirt road to the houses wasn't great but this will not keep us away.

For a winter break from the city, we couldn't ask for a better hideaway. From the get go, we received excellent service. The house was just breathtaking and had more than we needed for the perfect weekend. Aloe Ridge got all the small details just right….

We will be back!

It is one of those places that you would just want visit over and over again!

We had a great time, stunning accommodation, excellent facilities, amazing views and we will most definitely will be back in the summer months.
A place you can visit all year, in the winter a place to relax and keep warm by the fire, while being surround by beauty. In summer water sports or just chilling round the pool.... See you again the summer

We stayed in Drakensberg, their newest self-catering house. It was unbelievable and quite unexpected. The photo's on the website does not do it justice - it is much better in person.
This is rated as one of our best self-catering stays. The house is filled with amenities and facilities, everything you may want and need.
We did not want for anything, since everything was already there.
If you don't want to make your own food on the gas stove and oven, or braai outside on the patio, by the outdoor pool, overlooking the Breede river, then there is a lovely lodge with bar and restaurant you can also use.
We could just sit and stair and the view all day, not needing to go out and walk or do something at all. It was fabulous!
The service was very friendly and quite helpful.
There are a few activities you can do, like river rafting (class 2), do wall climbing or net climbing, abseiling, etc.
The river rafting was quite fun and there was a large group booking that we joined in doing this, which made it even more fun and exciting.
They also do large group bookings, where they organise all the activities and days for you, with all meals included, so it is great for a large family or even corporate booking.
This is quite a special place for us, since we went as a couple and I popped the question this weekend, but in doing so I asked for some special / romantic treatment and services and Aloe Ridge supplied this without a single hassle or problem. Just make sure to pre-arrange this with Aloe Ridge.
I would recommend this accommodation for everyone, from romance for couples, young and old, to large corporate bookings and events.

What a wonderful long weekend! The accommodation was fantastic (we were two couples with a baby each) and the two rooms were the same size and spacious enough for a camping cot, so no arguments over who goes into which bedroom. The kitchen was properly equiped (including a coffee plunger) and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I can't wait to go back!

My husband and I spend a night here on the way to Knysna and I really wished that we could have stayed longer. The accommodation is more than anyone can ask for - 5 star.
The two rooms are identical to each other, both on suite bathrooms and outdoor showers - making it ideal for two couples. You have your own pool and a glorious view of the river. It is fully stocked (even has a dishwasher). The only catch is that its a bit off the beaten track (well that is also a positive) and it is preferable if you drive a bakkie or 4x4 but you can get there easily enough with a normal car. Will so go back! Definite value for money

We had a lovely weekend in Aloe Ridge. The dirt road to get there is not the best, but by no means a terrible experience. We had a very warm welcome and a great dinner at Round the Bend lodge to start off our weekend.
The rooms are great and the view and surroundings beautiful. One just hopes that they will clear away more of the alien trees in the surrounds. Overall a lovely stay and we will definitely return.
