Tasteful decor, comfortable beds, oh, and nespresso in every room!!! beautiful surroundings - a place to be grateful for being...

After you woke up in the morning in your comfy oversized bed, had a shower in the huge double shower bathroom (according to the owner found in all rooms), and step afterwards into the separate breakfast room/building, your eyes won’t believe what they see. A breakfast buffet normally found in 5-Star hotels awaits you. From freshly squeezed juices, a huge...

We regrettably spent only one night in this charming and excellently run establishment, and would go back anytime, and for a much longer stay. The hosts are superb, offer the highest standards in hospitality and were constantly on hand to answer questions or queries. Five star!

It's winter and ice cold in the little town. However the rooms are perfectly suited for all weather with sufficient heating and bedding to make it cosy and romantic. The actual facilities are top-notch and beautifully curated. We had a wonderful stay here, with great breakfast and welcoming staff and owners. I cant wait to go back.

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
