“Poor Holiday Experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Was asked to settle room account at check-in, which was unexpected. All accounts at restaurant had to be setled separately and with each sitting. Room was comfortable, but noisy, as it was close to reception. Restaurant service was fair but the food was poor. This is not a good place for a family with young children. I will not recommend this lodge.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The only problem we had was with the braai facilities. It would have been great if each unit had its own braai. Other than that we had a great time and will be coming back soon.

I would recommend The Breede River Lodge to anyone thinking of a break from the busy city life!

The staff are very accomodating and they make you feel relaxed.

All in all I have a fantastic weekend.

WELL DONE!!!!!!!!!!

Great value for money, beautiful location! The rooms were nice and clean and the staff very friendly. Very nice location to go fishing, will definitely visit again. The restaurants in the area are very nice, go visit San Sabastian and the Anchorage for lekker fish and chips. The food at the restaurant situated at the Lodge was not very enjoyable.

The new management has made some remarkable improvements overall in the general service levels of this popular location. Since PiliPili took over the catering side (bar and food), the vibe has become really pleasant. Will definitely return again (and again)

We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of space there was in the unit and although the kitchen is small it was still possible to prepare light meals without too much hassle. Only reason everything is not excellent is because the children's room was quite small.

The restaurant's menu are very very small. Previously the restaurant was excellent, but the menu was a big problem besause we did not take any food with us for the weekend and we did not know that the the restaurant changed. Hopefully it will change.
