Excellent location by the river and short walk to restaurants. The owners were very friendly and helpful and had thought of everything- even a very well stocked honesty bar. Lovely terrace to have breakfast and small plunge pool with recliners etc to relax by. Room was also lovely and had everything needed

We stayed in a self- catering lodge which was equipped with all that you would need to cook for yourself. We ate out at Anny’s Bistro, which was recommended by our host, Albert. The lodge was large and came with an open fireplace as well as a lovely deck with comfortable seating. A real find and great value.

A heritage property that has been lovingly decorated to a very high standard with excellent attention to detail. There is a beautiful deck attatched to the property which provides shady outdoor seating and lounging space along with a small pool for cooling off. Breakfast was great and we particularly enjoyed all the little extras provided during our stay such as a fully stocked honesty bar, sherry in the room, fresh water and chocholates at bed time and a free car washing service!! If you are looking for a luxury guest house experience in Oudtstroon then this is your place!

We will return.
We really loved our stay at this lodge from the minute we arrived to leaving. Hosts absolutely went the extra mile by having our car washed, providing us iced water and chocolates for the night. Also had free welcome drinks and snacks. Beautiful outdoor views, pool and seating area. Cottage was very well stocked with lots of attention to detail. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Good free internet.
