I have stayed at Welgekozen Country Lodge for a very, very long period. Betty, Bob and the whole staff made all possible efforts to make me feel like at home. I surely did and I'll be grateful for the rest of my life. Why I chose Welgekozen among all the options in Piet Retief? The spacious and well equipped rooms.... More

I would never consider staying anywhere else in Pietretief! Our stay at Welgekozen was fabulous and all you need. The rooms are huge, spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious and clean and the shower great. We left before breakfast but apparently it is amazing too! Thank you Welgekozen for a comfortable and great night!

You don't expect this comfort and professionalism in a little town like Piet Retief but Bob & Betty run an exceptionally fine B&B establishment. For Room 6, we could park our car almost next to the bed! Although on the main road, which is where it would seem just about every truck in SA comes to rest, our room was... More

This is an awesome place. Spacious rooms, clean and nice bathroom. The most friendly people, helping out when needed. A big clean pool, seats, lovely bar. And we could eat diner there. A 3 course meal from the chef. so we did not have to drive anymore the evening.

We booked at the last minute as we were passing through Piet Retief on our way to KZN Natal. It is a lovely lodge with extremely nice rooms. Everything was perfect, and the bar was well stocked with a variety of wines and spirits (R95 for a bottle of decent South African red wine). Should we pass this way again... More

The room (#1) was very comfortable,spacious and well decorated and made for a wonderful... More

For business purposes the past 23 years, I have spent many a night in the town of Piet Retief. In this town I have slept and enjoyed the hospitality of most of the "top" B&B's and lodges. Welgekozen was the lodge I enjoyed the most. The architecture of this lovely lodge is stunning, set on well maintained grounds. The rooms... More

This was a convenient overnight stop en route to Richards Bay. Easy to find. We were given a "route march" tour of the lodge by Bob (maybe because the soccer was on). The room was a good size and clean. No bath, but large shower. Unfortunately, we couldn't explore the grounds as there was a wedding in progress. Being a... More
