Aloe Ridge is fabulous. Quite, beautiful and so relaxing. The cottages are very well kept and staff very helpful. Unfortunately the approach road especially the last five miles is really unbearable. Deep potholes and dangerous and unless you have a 4x4 quite unpleasant.

It was great however the table and chairs on the stoep are very uncomfortable to sit on .It would be nice to have more comfortable chairs outside on the stoep (have a dining room table inside) in order to just relax and 'kuier'. The lying beds are nice for a little while. Absolutely loved the pool and the view over...

We spend three days in one of their houses. Stunning location, but remember to do your shopping before you get there, it's far from everything! Could be more need, especially the bath and pool towels..

1. Some sort of shading would have been nice for our vehicle that had to be in the sun for 4 days. 2. The main bedroom can do with ALL White linen and a better quality duvet and pillows 3. Kitchen needs some tupperware bowls

Lovely and tranquil. Something different. A combination of rustic and luxury. Three observations.. Room service forgot to clean the one bin and the administrator at reception down the road playing his music too loud. Maintenance needs attention.

Location and views really lovely. Covered deck, outside braai and pool are great. Adequately equipped with basic necessities for a relaxing weekend stay. Cottage could be cleaner - bathmat and oven really dirty. Mattress and pillows a bit soft and lumpy.

We were blown away by the modern furnishings and the wonderful view from the deck. The sound of the river from your room was amazing. Beds were very comfortable. Surroundings were picture perfect. A short walk to the restaurant.

Lovely accommodation, fantastic views over the Breede River and no too close to neighbouring chalets. Could have maybe offered servicing of chalets as inclusive other than at extra cost, but otherwise excellent standard. River rafting was great fun and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Well worth a visit :o)
