We stayed for two nights in one of the recently refurbished Superior Triple rooms. The room itself was large,tastefully furnished,a King sized double bed and very well equipped from a nicely sized flat screen TV (with sufficient channels),tea and coffee to a cozy patio.The modern bathroom had a plentiful supply of hot water with fluffy towels. The only criticism would... More

Spent two nights at the Malagas Hotel really enjoyed the relaxed feel and friendly staff. The rooms were neat and well fitted with fridge and TV (with DSTV access). The meals were wholesome and tasty with good variety. This is a nice place to get away from it all and enjoy some Country lodge atmosphere and good food. I would... More

We were tempted to the Malagas Hotel by their website gallery and glowing accolades on their home page, and hoped that the less than complimentary comments on TripAdvisor were perhaps overly critical. But our experience confirmed that TripAdvisor guest comments were more accurate than their website pages. From our 'superior' downstairs room we could hear very bathroom activity of guests... More

For those exploring the Overberg and the Agulhas plains, the Malagas hotel is a delightful oasis. It has to be approached on dirt roads which can be a test for overseas visitors, but they are really OK (a good tip is to reduce tyre pressures to 2.0 bars.) The rooms are tiny but immaculate, and the half board rates are... More

My wife and I travelled with friends and stayed for1 night. The setting is unique in that you can make use of (probably) the only functional ferry in RSA to get to the hotel. The rooms are well apportioned and clean. Due to the lack of air conditioning, the heat tends to build up in the rooms. The dinner and... More

Thank you for this informative review of the Malagas Hotel for future guests. We are currently working on a system to get WiFi in the rooms as well. Unfortunately the road condition is not at its best this time of the year after a busy holiday season on the river and the heavy vehicles used for harvesting. More

The Hotel is quaint, and the hosts tried. Was a bit disappointed by the New Years Eve dinner. Although we knew it would be a braai, they could have put more effort in to ensure the food was at least good. The pap was raw, meat tasted bland and boiled, and was so tough, you were still chewing the next... More

My family and I decided to visit the Malagas hotel over the New Year's period. We were left underwhelmed, to say the least. Although this hotel was described as a pleasant little getaway spot with friendly and helpful staff, we found that it was everything but. To begin with, the New Year's dinner (sloppy seafood 'cocktail', cold pap and a... More

I really liked the Malagas Hotel, and would go there any holiday or weekend. The newly updated superior rooms are the way to go.The hotel is suited in a unique environment where you feel at one with nature! When we arrived the staff were most friendly, and greeted us and showed us to our room. The rooms are beautifully decorated,... More

We recently went for a two night cruise on the Breede River operated by Malagas Hotel. Our late booking was well handled and the administration and formalities before boarding was completed in about one and a half hour. Staff was very friendly and competent. On the downside, the boats are really a bit aged and need some attention, especially the... More

We did the 200km Double century cycle race and the hotel staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs for our race. From frozen bottles to great nutritional food both pre and post race. Although it was further away from the start than we'd have chosen, everyone really enjoyed their stay and we'd highly recommend Malagas Hotel to... More
