The quaint newly renovated De Bergkant Lodge has everything that you need for a visit to Prince Albert. The rooms are impeccably clean, roomy, comfortable and authentically period decorated. We stayed in a suite where we found everything that we wished for: a small bar with complementary tea and coffee, a refrigerator for keeping all the delicious things that we...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We have spent around two weeks here nearly every year over Christmas and New Year for the past 8 years, and were concerned about any changes the new owners might bring in. Didn't need to be, everything seems fresher, cleaner and better than ever. Wisely keeping the character that makes De Bergkant so special but with their own extra up-to-date...

"The Bergkant Lodge" was a marvellous surprise to me. The wonderful and beautifully kept garden strike the eye as soon as you enter the plot. The house is a real Cape house. The rooms are big and clean to the extreme. And the breakfast at the pool is not only good tasting, but one is welcomed by the staff as...

Couldn't fault a thing. A very good stay, sadly too short. We've stayed here before but this was the first time under thecurrent management. A nice touch was that they had made a provisional reservation for us at a nice restaurant which worked out well. These people really know what they're doing.

De Bergkant Lodge is excellent. The new, (relatively), owners are friendly, obliging and striving to create a 5 stare experience. Our room was well appointed, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The bathroom facilities are great. The bar facilities are limited as is the TV channel selection. They are trying to rectify this. All the recommended restaurants are within 1 km.

Arrived to a friendly welcome from our hosts. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds comfy. Tea, coffee and a nepresso machine (for those who like designer coffee) were available in the room. The bathroom was 'old fashioned' ...a fantastic claw bath, a large sink and brass shower heads in a wet room, and a high level Victorian flushing...

Gorgeous venue with peaceful and beautiful gardens - private and tranquil atmosphere. Our hosts took amazing care of us - friendly service and gave us privacy when we wanted it. We stayed in the honeymoon suite for my 50th birthday - couldn't have spent this special occasion anywhere better!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 'De Bergkant Lodge' is a historical Cape Dutch GuestHouse located in the beautiful, historical town of Prince Albert at the foot of the dramatic Swartberg mountains in the Great Karoo. The 'De Bergkant Lodge' offers their guests four luxurious Suites with lounge, bedroom and en suite bathroom, and five equally well-appointed luxurious Double Rooms with en suite bathroom. All rooms have ceiling fans, air-conditioning, tea- and coffee facilities, TV (with DStv) and most have under-floor heating. All the bathrooms have our famous double showers, Victorian baths and under-floor heating for chilly winter days (which occur just occasionally). Fluffy cotton towels ensure that you feel pampered. All beds are either twin- or king size. Our linen is 100% pure cotton. Breakfast for our guests is served either inside in our poolside dining room or on the terrace in the garden beneath the trees. Much of our fare on our breakfast buffet comes from the village and local farms in and around Prince Albert. Prince Albert is famous for its deciduous fruit and the milk, yoghurt and prize-winning cheese from Gay's Dairy. Guests will enjoy at the 'De Bergkant Lodge' a breakfast which is a delight in taste and presentation. The secluded gardens boast two large saltwater swimming pools: a 15m pool surrounded by verdant lawns and a 10m walled, private pool. We also offer a sauna and steam bath and hidden in a private garden you will find a small "star" bath. ... more   less
