Kowie River Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 April 2015

We only spent one night. We should have spent more, unfortunately we had a prescheduled itinerary. The establishment is top notch in terms of neatness, friendliness of the owners, decoration of the rooms and overall atmosphere.

The pool area is great to relax. We had a lovely view of the Kowie River from our room. We requested a quiet room and that is what we experienced in the corner suite.

Breakfast was delicious. Some of the best bacon we have ever tasted. The chef was extremely friendly and helfpful.

We really enjoyed our stay and will make it a point of visiting this establishment again. I give this establishment a 4.6 out of 5.

Room Tip: The Corner Suite was Great.

We stayed for a Week, Monday to Saturday. This is truly an up market establishment. The breakfast is exceptional and lovingly presented by Dale, your hosts helpful and unobtrusive. The Facilities around the swimming pool, proximity to the river, the on-suite (with a great deep and relaxing bath) and the balcony with its build in hot rocks gas braai are all top rate.

The lounge (breakfast) area is not really available to guests to use, so you may feel a little room bound if you are not out and about on a longish stay.

Room Tip: The family room does not have a river view.
