Was a nice accommodation. Only the demand for a down payment was a bit surprising and not really easy to handle.It was late received whilst we were already travelling in South Africa. However , the drive to the lodge was nice , using the special ferry in Malgas . As small weak point to state ,the restaurant managed to serve...

Firstly NO BRAAI, Unit was not clean. During our previous stay we had a beautiful house with braai area and enough space. During this stay, we were really disappointed. Some improvement will need to be done.

Stay was great. I recommend new carpets for hotel. I can also recommend broom & mop for room 108 which we occupied. I had to inquire about a broom. There was no mop. The room is very comfortable & has all the necessary equipment.

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The room and the lodge were excellent value for money. I would have no problem recommending Breede Lodge to anyone who wants to see the Witsand area for either fishing or just seeing the sights.

Booked in to self catering units for my birthday weekend. Exterior terrace was filthy, one broken dirty plastic chair. Inside covered in dust, top of microwave clearly not cleaned for a while, towels with holes in them. Only positive was location, view and good dinner at on site restaurant. Rate was good and unit acceptable BUT would expect basic cleanliness....

The Pili Pili restaurant was perfect for our needs and the staff was very friendly. The rooms all have a lovely view over the river and sea. Attention should be given to cleanliness. Will certainly return.

I'd originally booked a studio room. However, we got lost on the road and arrived late after check-in - please note that the Lodge shuts down at 9/10pm. The Lodge downgraded us to a "budget room" because of this. Although the room was small it was sufficient enough for our needs. However, the room was unclean - the bathroom had...

I was not happy because i was not told that this was a backpackers room and required climbing quite a few stairs, this caused a problem for my wife because she has a knee problem. In order to stay i had to upgrade at a higher cost to me.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated in Witsand / Port Beaufort "THE" Whale nursery of South Africa on the Garden Route midway between Cape Town and Plettenberg Bay, on the unspoiled bank of the mighty Breede River. The water course is tidal and navigable for up to 40 km. The area is a mariner's dream both on the river and the sea. Angling features as the number one attraction with many record breaking catches over the years as will be seen on the Breede River Lodge Wall of Fame. Safe tranquil beaches for walking and swimming. Beautiful in the windless and mild winter days. The area is also renowned for all kinds of water sport, swimming, surfing, wind surfing, deep sea and river fishing, rock, boat and fly fishing, river cruises, canoeing, sailing, spear fishing and snorkeling. With all of this in mind the hotel endeavors to cater both for the local family traveler and the international traveler who would like to see a part of the real South Africa. Experience friendly village life that offers food for the soul and a place to simply relax and unwind. We are ideally situated on the Garden Route as a middle point and base from which to travel and experience the vast arrays of attractions available on this route. We look forward to welcoming you here at the Breede. ... more   less
