Wow! What an absolutely stunning location! The River Villa is a hidden gem, with exquisite views of the river from most of the rooms. It felt like we were in Europe. Remote & magical. The villa has nooks with entertainment areas in every corner. There is so much to do from having cocktails on the deck, soaking in the quaint wood-fired jacuzzi, swimming in the river, trail running amongst the vineyards & orchards... to just relaxing & enjoying the tranquility of the beautiful Elgin Valley. Our stay made me love our country even more!
I cannot recommend the Elgin River Lodge highly enough. This was my second stay and went with all my friends for my birthday weekend. The location is incredible, being only an hours drive from Cape Town, it's convenient to get to but you still feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. The facilities and service are fantastic and it's truly a place where you can connect to nature and each other and properly unwind and recharge.
We stayed for a weekend getaway . We were not disappointed at all. The restaurant is accommodating, the food is delicious and big portions . The staff and the owners are really the best. Nothing is a problem for us , they are so friendly and so helpful . They gave us advice on the best wine farms in the area . The cabin is very comfortable. Showers are good and very hot . Lots of things to do here . It’s a nice family or couple resort , it’s also very safe .
We had our annual work conference at the Elgin River Lodge, from the time of booking until we left the staff were efficient, friendly and SO accommodating. The accommodation is lovely and the conference facilities were top class and very well organized and prepared for our team. Leisure activities included tubing, wake boarding and canoeing all very fun and enjoyed by all who partook in those activities, there is a stunning deck to have sundowners, to relax or to watch the rugga! Meals were next lever lekker and prepared on time. The views, well they are just spectacular. I would highly reccommend this lodge to everyone!! Ill defo be back soon for a break away from the city life. A HUGE thanks to Cass, Ty, Brett, Rowena and all the staff who made our stay memorable and so pleasant - Thank you for your outstanding service!…
We stayed over at the Elgin River Lodge for a weekend - we had planned so many activities but ended up staying at the lodge most of the time because there was so much to do and we loved the peaceful atmosphere! We spent our time out on their canoes, reading our books on the sun loungers while taking in the beautiful view of the mountains and river, going for walks, treating ourselves at the spa and enjoying the hot tub. All the staff were so friendly, warm and welcoming, and really went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was special. We will definitely be back soon!
