Very friendly personel and great food at the restaurant. The rooms was very neat, and cleaned everyday. The restaurant and bar is kept nice and hot in the winter season. Ideal break away for a weekend!

Our reservation was dealt with very professionally. All our requests were dealt with. The dinning room requires upgrading but it was comfortable considering it is winter. The units were clean and comfortable and one felt safe. Will certainly visit Breede River Resort again.

It is always a pleasure to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay.
The restaurant building is being renovated as we speak, so on your next visit you'll be able to enjoy dinning in the new restaurant.
We hope to welcome you back to the lodge soon.

Kind Regards

After filming for Pasella in Witsand, we really fell in love with the lodge and its people! We even went back for more :) The staff are all extremely friendly and really spoilt us, and there's nothing like waking up in the morning with that beautiful view over the Breede River! Leon, the owner, is and excellent sport and you can ask him anything about fishing. Neels, who runs the adventure centre, has everything from stand up paddling to boatrides to entertain you. So this is your place whether it's for relaxing, water activities or just 'lekker kuier' with the locals. We'll definitely be back again.

Great being a non-smoker, but then the bliksems next door (man and woman) sat on their balcony, used foul language talking to each other and smoked. I cannot sleep with windows closed, so I was stunk out.

Comfortable stay, friendly staff, beautiful setting. Building and surrounding areas need upgrading. The linnen in the on the bed had not been ironed and was rather old, also pillows below standard and bed not that comfortable. Rest of unit was good, bathroom and living area.

Important !On booking, one should be told not to take the dirt road as there is an alternative tarred road. Separate billing for dining and rooms, not so good. Rooms clean, food was good. Needs upgrading

Good Day,

Thank you for your review.

On booking reception should have sent you two sets of directions, for the tarred and dirt road. I apologize that this was over looked with your booking.
Upgrades to the lodge will be taking place in the near future so hopefully on your next visit some of the work will be done and you can enjoy.

Hope to welcome you back soon.

Kind Regards

Our stay was lovely but the place needs upgrading. Bathroom door cannot close, shower door hanging on upper rail only etc. Our sincere condolence with the loss of your staff member. Despite this sad loss, your staff was friendly and effective
