Although only built in 1996, it seems older than that. Comfortable bedroom with lovely view of the river. Dining room dark and a little depressing and the food was average compared to all the other meals we had on our two week stay in South Africa. Perhaps to be expected when it is so far 'off the beaten track'. Not... More

Rooms and service was good! Nice trip to infanta and stopover at the Bushpub are recommended! Fishing paradise, Boat Hire! Church building from 1836 to be viewed and the main attraction is the Malagas Pond!

The hotel is located in a beautiful setting and is nicely laid out. The rooms are neat, clean, tidy and well maintained. However, the experience of staying at the hotel is very poor. We had intended to eat all our dinners and breakfasts at the hotel, but after the first evening dinner, we changed our minds quickly. That meal was... More

It was fantastic - hotel,boating,weather,people, everything!! I would recommend it to anyone for an interesting vacation . The journey rom Swellendam was about 30 km down a sandy road then across the Breede River by Pont ( Not necessary-we went down the wrong side of the River - but fun! ).

What a beautiful setting. It was quite an experience getting there not used to all the gravel roads. The food was good and going over the pont was a great experience. We really enjoyed it. The food was good and a very generous helping.

Hotel located approx. 45 min drive from De Hoop Collection. Good breakfast and dinner (buffet). I slept in a simple but clean room and there are various room options/upgrades. Hotel does not accept dogs. Free parking and petrol station about 50 m from hotel (big advantage as the other petrol station is about 60 km far). Friendly for families. Friendly... More

A great experience at a hotel with all round friendly and helpful staff. We had a superior room on the fist floor with a view overlooking the well known ferry.

Spent a long weekend full board at very reasonable rates. Enjoyed ourselves immensely. Food and accommodation was excellent. Staff are very friendly and service was great. Cannot wait to return. Located on the banks of the Breede River and using pontoon to cross with our vehicle was an experience
