Fantasties en rustige omgewing.

Van die oomblik wat ons by die Tides River Lodge aangekom het, was dit fantasties. Ons het 'n baie vriendelike ontvangs gehad. Ons het per motorfiets gereis en was moeg. Patience het vir ons ons huis gaan wys en dadelik hout gebring vir ons braai. Die huis was baie skoon, ruim en goed toegerus. Absoluut alles wat ons nodig gehad het was daar. Ons sal vir seker gou weer kom kuier.

Fantastic and peaceful environment.

From the moment we arrived at the Tides River Lodge it was fantastic. We had a very friendly reception. We traveled by motorbike and were tired. Patience showed us our house and immediately brought wood for our barbecue. The house was very clean, spacious and well equipped. Absolutely everything we needed was there. We will definitely visit again soon.

It was perfect for our needs.

We were alone at the resort and I think that's what made it even more special. It was so clean and well equipped. I would say only negative is that it should have an all weather outdoor space, just cover the patio with some chromodeck!

Heerlik gebly in The Boat House. Net langs rivier. Kon lekker ontspan en gaan kajak. Onverbeterlik.

Despite ongoing rain we were comfortable in Cob cottage.

The wood available for the indoor fireplace sits outside in the rain so better bring your own. The thatch roof leaked in a few places. On sunny days neither of these items would be a problem.

Pragtige ligging, maar fasiliteite skiet tekort.

Ons chalet was skoon, maar die leefarea was verslete en die badkamer kort aandag. Die stort is in die bad en spuit nie lekker nie, en daar is nie eens 'n deur of stortgordyn nie. Dit kort aandag.

Beautiful location, but facilities are lacking.

Our chalet was clean, but the living area was worn and the bathroom needed attention. The shower is in the tub and doesn't spray well, and there isn't even a door or shower curtain. It needs attention.

Great base for exploring.

Comfortable and well-maintained cottages (although Kingfisher cottage really could use a proper stove/oven), friendly staff, and lovely location. Kayaking and bird-watching on the river was a highlight, and there's a generous grassy riverfront area but there's not a lot of area to stroll or wander directly on the grounds. But a very peaceful place in a great area and a good base for exploring.

Asemrowend mooi op die walle van die Breërivier.

Dis die perfekte ligging, letterlik op die rivieroewer. Heerlike warmwater om in te swem. Pragtige watervoëls om oor 'n skemerkelkie dop te hou, terwyl die son se laaste strale die rante sag verkleur. Die ruim huis het 'n groot kombuis en lekker kuierplek onder. Ons kon egter nie genoeg van die omgewing kry nie en het dus buite gebraai en op die stoep gekuier tot laat met die gekabbel van die water in ons ore. En weer ontbyt op die stoep genuttig. Die kamers is ongelukkig skraps gemeubileer, ontoereikende plek vir klere ophang en uitpak. Selfs net 'n plek om 'n mens se tas neer te sit sal help. Daar is ook net in die een kamer 'n spieël en geen haardroër nie.

Breathtakingly beautiful on the banks of the Breë River.

It's the perfect location, literally on the river bank. Lovely warm water to swim in. Beautiful waterfowl to watch over a cocktail, while the sun's last rays gently color the ridges. The spacious house has a large kitchen and a nice sitting area downstairs. However, we couldn't get enough of the surroundings and so we barbecued outside and hung out on the porch until late with the water babbling in our ears. And enjoyed breakfast on the porch again. The rooms are unfortunately sparsely furnished, insufficient space for hanging clothes and unpacking. Even just a place to put one's bag will help. There is also only one room with a mirror and no hairdryer.

'n Atmosfeer wat jou neem na onbereikbare droomplekkies.

Die mooiste uitsig en goed toegeruste huisies. Die bestuurder gaan uit sy pad uit om dit 'n onvergeetlike kuier te maak. Mens vergeet van al die droogtes en uitdagings en geniet 'n Godgegewe skoonheid. Sal beslis weer kom kuier.

Rustige ervaring. Rivier is pragtig.

Ons het dit baie geniet. Die gesin het geroei op die rivier, geswem en gebraai. Die mans kon fiets ry. Dit was 'n goeie ervaring vir die hele gesin. Wooneenheid was goed toegerus en baie netjies.

We enjoyed it very much. The family rowed on the river, swam and barbecued. The men could ride bicycles. It was a great experience for the whole family. Apartment was well equipped and very tidy.

Tides River Lodge 's response

Thanks for your review.
Re Kingfisher stove/oven, we are a rural destination where most people braai either in the lapa or at their cottage.
If you want an oven best to specify and we will give you one of our self-catering cottages. You booked a Studio.
I would have thought 2 hectares with half a kilometre of river frontage was enough area to walk around.

Ongelooflike waarde vir geld.

Andre was baie hulpvaardig en het ons verblyf so aangenaam as moontlik gemaak. Toe hy hoor ons bly vir 4 nagte het hy ons verblyfplek omgeruil met die groter een langsaan. Daar het twee afsonderlike lotte gaste vir die langnaweek in die kleiner eenheid gebly. Ons het sodoende 'n ruimer eenheid gehad. Die grasperk en die water gee soveel opsies van dinge om te doen - beide vir oud en jonk!

Unbelievable value for money.

Andre was very helpful and made sure our stay was as pleasant as possible. When he found out we booked a three night stay he moved us to the bigger room next door. Two separate groups of guest stayed in the smaller unit for the long weekend. So in that way we obtained the more spacious unit. The lawn and water gives many options for activities - for young and old.

Gemaklike oornagplek.

Ideale verblyf as mens eintlik net slaapplek benodig. Ons het die pad vreeslik sleg gevind, gelukkig het ons 'n hoë SUV, kan nie eintlik dink dat die lae motors maklik tot daar sal ry nie. Die kamer is redelik goed ingerig, ongelukkig geen wasbakkie om skottelgoed in uit te spoel nie, en geen lugverkoeling of waaier nie.

Comfortable overnight stay.

Ideal accommodation if you just need a place for the night. The road was terrible but luckily we had a high SUV, don't think a vehicle with low ground clearance would be sufficient. The room is relatively well-appointed, unfortunately no basin to wash dishes and no aircon or fan.

A beautiful and peaceful place to spend a weekend (for a Cape Town escape).

The Boathouse is comfortable and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful. The river is lovely, there is a variety of bird species and the water is warm and great for swimming.
