We were so pleased with our decision and will definitely be back. We can't stop recommending it to our friends and family. We had a lovely self catering unit on the end (Otter)...

We stayed for 2 night and it was absolutely great. The sunset on the mountain and the quietness was just what we needed. Our room faced the river and the Klein river mountains. The bird life was great. We took a paddle on the river and was amazed by the bird life. Morning and evening was the 'pass by' for...

We stayed at Stanford River Lodge for 3 nights over New Year 2015. The place was extremely peaceful, on the banks of a beautiful river where we canoed and saw many birds. The accommodation is tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean. Our room had a lovely bathroom with shower and bath. There was a small kitchenette, with enough space to make...

I have stayed in many self catering units but this was by far the best, I have never before...

Occasionally, one finds a place which exceeds ones expectations! This was one such find, from the initial greeting by Valda, their introduction to the Stanford area, which has a lot to offer, to the absolutely gorgeous accommodation. It's part of a complex, but each unit is completely private. I enjoyed a lovely swim in the evening, agree at canoe trip...
