Nice location, but room, although clean, should have a better maintenance (door handle, light). The room has a moldy smell. We weren't able to pay with an European VISA credit card and have to use a South African one.

Our room had cracked tiles on the floor and the bed linen was "bobbled". It did not feel clean. The carpeting on the stairs and corridors leading to our room was stained as were the walls. In addition there was a "musty" smell. The Residents Lounge had a ripped carpet and stained furniture. The setting is very good, some TLC...

A very special location alongside the river.. Our duplex unit was very comfortable, the only negative being the very steep stairs to the upper level. The only other negative was not catching any fish, otherwise an excellent stay.

Rooms in need of a little TLC but for a weekend stay they were OK. Pila Pila Restaurant/Pub was the place to be. Pizza's were amazing. Pub got a bit rowdy with some locals that had been playing beer pong most of the day.

Always good to stay at the lodge with you. A word of advice - you should let your customers know if their is going to be building and noise going on next door during their stay? This is the 2nd time it has happened to me and it can be a real inconvenience

Excellent clean accommodation for your fishing trip on the Breede River - or other activities. Helpful staff at the harbour. Convenient restaurant and pub on the premises. A supermarket also with 3mins drive. Just make sure when you book you establish whether the unit is self catering or a hotel room.

A most enjoyable three nights in well appointed 2 bed (both ensuite) apartment, with panoramic views over the river estuary. We saw small river/inshore boats with fishermen collecting oysters (shipped by taxi to Cape Town by taxi daily) and other fish for the Resort and other markets. Our regular watering hole was the Anchorage, which is by the sea from...

Although the friendliness of the staff could have been kicked up a notch (the staff at Big Catch down the road were way more accommodating and willing to help than the staff at the lodge). But overall, it was a lovely trip and a stunning location.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated in Witsand / Port Beaufort "THE" Whale nursery of South Africa on the Garden Route midway between Cape Town and Plettenberg Bay, on the unspoiled bank of the mighty Breede River. The water course is tidal and navigable for up to 40 km. The area is a mariner's dream both on the river and the sea. Angling features as the number one attraction with many record breaking catches over the years as will be seen on the Breede River Lodge Wall of Fame. Safe tranquil beaches for walking and swimming. Beautiful in the windless and mild winter days. The area is also renowned for all kinds of water sport, swimming, surfing, wind surfing, deep sea and river fishing, rock, boat and fly fishing, river cruises, canoeing, sailing, spear fishing and snorkeling. With all of this in mind the hotel endeavors to cater both for the local family traveler and the international traveler who would like to see a part of the real South Africa. Experience friendly village life that offers food for the soul and a place to simply relax and unwind. We are ideally situated on the Garden Route as a middle point and base from which to travel and experience the vast arrays of attractions available on this route. We look forward to welcoming you here at the Breede. ... more   less
