6/10 Good

Pleasant location poor bed and lack of a/c problem
The Stanford River Lodge is in a pleasant, if out of the way location. While Stanford is a nice enough little town few if any decent restaurant options were available on a Sunday evening. Thus we had to drive at night about 15 km for a good meal outside of Stanford itself. The lack of a cooked breakfast option, as opposed to a breakfast basket, before our long onward journey was disappointing, however to be fair this is clearly highlighted on the website etc. The two key diffIculties were the uncomfortable bed and the lack of a/c (the latter again clear on the website), which led to an uncomfortable night for both of us. Overall, although well priced, we found our one night stay unsatisfactory.

Midweek break.
A warm welcome awaited us on arrival at the lodge. Room was ready, and also the possibility to move rooms, if we wanted to. Perfect location to unwind and visit surrounding area, especially the wine estates. A very interesting town with it's history. Can strongly recommend.

10/10 Exceptional

A peaceful haven
The room was large and comfortable with the most magnificent view of the river. The house was fab with a beautiful large lounge to sit in and watch TV. They supplied a kayak to use on the river, but it was a little too windy to use that day, but it was so quiet and peaceful, would definitely recommend.
