This venue would even be better in summer. Great area to walk, riparian accommodation, wine estate with a km, Stanford is a great village. Unfortunately, like many venues, repairs and maintenance are lacking. Thought that over the "lockdown" period, they would have attended to the pop-up plug in the washbasin [stuck with no washer], leaking shower door, etc.

This was our second trip here, and needless to say, we were not disappointed. We visited Stanford River Lodge just about two years ago and have been wanting to come back ever since. Our second stay in the Fisheagle suite was just as romantic and unforgettable as the first and the view was as breathtaking as ever. We can't ever get enough of it. The privacy, self-catering facilities and value for money are unbeatable. Juanita is the best hostess ever-most accommodating and easy going, she always makes a plan for exactly what we need. If any couple needs a breakaway from city life and some quality R&R, this is ideal. Highly recommended.

One of our favorite spots, we always stay in the same room and come back at least once per year. It is right on the river and when you sit o the patio you can see the sun rise over the mountains. Super fireplace and electric blankets to ensure you are warm int eh winter.

We spent three nights in the Sunbird room at the beginning of our holiday. The room was clean and quiet, the unspoiled view of nature unique. We enjoyed the peace and the wide view. Juanita is a friendly and attentive site manager, John a pleasant and knowledgeable host and owner. We will be back in spring. Cheers, Birgit & Chris

Very good self catering apartment in excellent location. Wonderful views, loads of birds but not too far from restaurants and other amenities. Valda and Juanita couldn’t have been more helpful both before and during or stay and Juanita cooks a mean buttered chicken.
