Waschbank River Lodge is a bed and breakfast establishment sited on the Orange River and is a lovely spot. The river was in full spate with the nearby Gariep Dam overflowing when I visited. Make sure you have the gate code before you arrive at the gate as there is no cell phone reception there and you have to go back a way to phone!! I spent 2 nights in room 4 which is more private than the lower numbers and has an almost private deck with a table. The room was very comfortable although I found the shower stall badly designed and the water temperature difficult to control. There was a good view from the room. Breakfast was ok. I had dinner one evening; the lamb chops were very good and price of the food and wine reasonable. The staff were all very hospitable and helpful. The lodge is very reasonably priced and I am told they intend to install a swimming pool in the not distant future. I recommend the lodge.…
The host is VERY accomodating and with great views this is certainly a winning recipe. Less than 2 hours from bloemfontein allows for a quick after work getaway. You can not get more value for your money!
Lovely place, very peaceful, excellent service, staff are extremely friendly. Very easy to find without a gps. Certainly a place I will revisit when traveling. The food is beyond delicious! Awesome place!
I had a magnificent stay at Waschbank. The views and surrounding nature is beautiful and so peaceful. The staff are friendly and helpful and the room (room 4) has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. I would love to go back and enjoy the other activities they have on the farm, like hiking and game drives.
Property has an excellent location and ideal close proximity to Gariep and the Orange river. The facilities are well-kept and very neat and tidy. We especially enjoyed the restaurant food, the complimentary firewood, ample space and luxurious unit facilities (dstv, air conditioning, kitchen utilities). Will definitely go back again! Highly recommended!
