We chose TriActive for our annual company retreat this year, and we are not sorry. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, the food was tasty and sufficient, planning the camp was easy, and the team on duty worked so hard taking care of us. I took 36 people away for a weekend and did not receive a single complaint! Many...

We ran 2 separate Team-builds at Tri-active and had a fantastic time! From the venue, to the food & staff, it was utterly enjoyable. An amazing experience, not far from the city, with a beautiful outdoor feel, The staff really was of the highest caliber and made us all feel welcome from the start.

I know this is a 3 star venue, so my expectations were not that high. The rooms are very basic! No cupboards to unpack. Rooms are tiny, the bathroom is even smaller. No fans in the room which makes the heat unbearable. You can hear all the traffic noise! Not pleasant at all.

Thanks very much for your review. We are very proudly graded by the TGCSA each year and very easily fall into the upper levels of 3 star grading. Our lodge comprises timber cabins and tented accommodation and is fully described on our website so there are no surprises for clients making a booking at the lodge. All cabins are fully...

Tri Active Lodge is what it sells itself to be - no frills, three star accommodation in a beautiful setting. The chalet was clean, the beds were comfortable, we had a lovely coffee station, staff were friendly, and the shower had hot water - which was all we needed for our one night stay-over. Unfortunately we did not dine there,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tri Active Lodge is a unique destination in the Elgin Valley/Grabouw area in that we offer accommodation in comfortable timber frame cabins as well as safari style tents. The gardens are magnificent, with predominantly indigenous trees and fynbos surrounding the rolling lawns. The backdrop comprises orchards which lead all the way up across the De Rust Estate to the Groenlandberg , a magnificent conservancy area. The Lodge accommodates a total of 46 people based on twin sharing, or 64 people based on twin, triple and four sharing. All rooms have en-suite facilities comprising a shower, hand basin and toilet. The room facilities also include a tea/coffee station, hairdryers, electric blankets, and two chairs for use on the outdoor porch area. Our lodge has a three star grading through the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. The Wildcats Restaurant and Pub is open to in-house guests as well as pre-booked groups. We offer a small a la carte menu for lunches and dinners. In the case of groups, set menus, buffets and braais are pre-arranged and pre-booked. Our pub is exceptionally cosy and certainly one of those pubs that would be hard to drag yourself away from. There are some games available such as thirty seconds, dominoes, jenga, playing cards and others. The outside deck area is great in summer and is situated right alongside the fishpond with a really funky water feature. You can also elect to enjoy the swimming pool deck on those warm summer days, lazing around enjoying a good book or good company. It is a popular venue for individuals, companies, conferences and special functions. Just one hour from Cape Town, it is very conveniently placed as a base to visit many major attractions such as the Great White Sharks, Hermanus, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and the burgeoning Elgin Valley wine estates. ... more   less
