We spent two nights here and it wasn't long enough! From the welcome from owner Renata who showed us around a great Dutch Cape room with accompanying double shower and huge bath we enjoyed every second. Prince Albert offers plenty to see and do and while it may require some determination to get there, the place and De Bergkant in...

Did a one night stopover in Prince Albert. Had a most enjoyable stay at de Bergkant with friendly service good room and great breakfast. Was most impressed that a table had been prebooked at a recommended restuarant before we had checked in so we had a seamless dinner.

We spent a night at the Bergkant to drive over Swartbergpas the following day. Renate and Michi were welcoming, helpful and friendly. The premises are beautiful and tastefully renovated. Marvellous Victorian bathroom (but everything working). There are two 10 meter pools for hot days. I can certainly recommend this place.

We stopped for only one night at De Bergkhant unfortunately. Renate and Micki (?

The room and bathroom were very large and retained the traditional character. The grounds and pools are magnificent and the breakfast was excellent. Our only regret,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 'De Bergkant Lodge' is a historical Cape Dutch GuestHouse located in the beautiful, historical town of Prince Albert at the foot of the dramatic Swartberg mountains in the Great Karoo. The 'De Bergkant Lodge' offers their guests four luxurious Suites with lounge, bedroom and en suite bathroom, and five equally well-appointed luxurious Double Rooms with en suite bathroom. All rooms have ceiling fans, air-conditioning, tea- and coffee facilities, TV (with DStv) and most have under-floor heating. All the bathrooms have our famous double showers, Victorian baths and under-floor heating for chilly winter days (which occur just occasionally). Fluffy cotton towels ensure that you feel pampered. All beds are either twin- or king size. Our linen is 100% pure cotton. Breakfast for our guests is served either inside in our poolside dining room or on the terrace in the garden beneath the trees. Much of our fare on our breakfast buffet comes from the village and local farms in and around Prince Albert. Prince Albert is famous for its deciduous fruit and the milk, yoghurt and prize-winning cheese from Gay's Dairy. Guests will enjoy at the 'De Bergkant Lodge' a breakfast which is a delight in taste and presentation. The secluded gardens boast two large saltwater swimming pools: a 15m pool surrounded by verdant lawns and a 10m walled, private pool. We also offer a sauna and steam bath and hidden in a private garden you will find a small "star" bath. ... more   less
