Greg going beyond the call of duty to host the honesty bar until the early hours on our last evening where we had a great chance to mix with some of the lovely guests from all parts...

We stayed here for 3 nights while attending a wedding nearby. The accommodation was of a very high standard, spotlessly clean with very comfortable bed. The staff were very friendly and could accommodate my need for a gluten free diet The swimming pool was perfect and lovely to come back to at the end of the day. The honesty bar...

We stayed in the Klein Waterval Lodge in February 2017 when we went to the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek area to attend a wedding event. Our room was very cozy with several details of decoration and comfort. Beautiful swimming pool and delicious breakfast. Still, the most important was the quality of attention that Ezra provided to us. She was very helpful...

There is plenty of space, towels for the pool (wonderfully refreshing after a long day tasting wine), honor bar, and outside tables if you choose to have a picnic style...

This is a difficult review to write because the owner/managers are lovely and hardworking people and I would love to say 'above average' but this accommodation does have its downside. Pros: clean, basic rooms. Nice owners. Nice pool. Nice view over vineyards. Honesty bar. Cons: tiny bathroom with towels having to be located in bedroom area. Hard mattress. Lots of...

We only stayed for one night but thoroughly enjoyed it. Location is great: not far from Franschhoek but also close enough to the wineries at Paarl and Stellenbosch. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. There is a nice outdoor pool, a comfortable lounge with an adjacent honesty bar set up which gives the lodge a sort of home-away-from-home feel to...
