Hi we stayed over on Saturday evening while visiting the wine festival. There are some things that did not meet my expectations. Firstly the lights not functioning, the zips on the bathroom door. The windows from the bathroom could not be covered so the tent...More

A nice relaxing experience. Feeling close to nature. Family cabins can do with better lighting. The shower wets the whole floor. A nice marked walking trail would also be great. Had a good rest. Will be back.

About
Description
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 ...More 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.
