Wellvale is a lovely spot in the middle of nowhere. No cell phone reception. Cottages are very nicely appointed and have all that you can wish for, nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. I was traveling by myself with my 2 year old daughter and the owners provided everything we could wish for. Breakfast was served on the lovely terrace. Great... More

Away from the city, in the heart of nature, we've spent 2 nights at this wonderful and safe resort. The owners are very friendly, flexible and clearly show that they have passion in what they do. Our family room was spaceous and equipped with all a family with young kids needs to have. From this location we've been whale watching... More

I had time of my life at Wellvale, the place is stunning in every possible way. Distant from all sort of disturbing noises, the pod at night is glorious, the mountains, the rooms are breath taking!!!!

The resort was a bit off the beaten track but the dirt roads were in good condition and good directions had been given. Personally I felt that the distance from the nearest towns added to the appeal. The owners were most welcoming and did everything they could to accommodate me including a packed breakfast as I left for work before... More

Quite a journey to get there but beautifully located resort. Jaap and Nienke are great hosts and being Dutch we had a lot to talk about! We had an upgrade from our initial room and this lodge was excellent (overlooking the river). I loved the garden. Good food and nice terrace to drink your coffee in the morning sun. Great... More

Wellvale is located about 12km from the main rod down a gravel road. Although a gravel road it is easily negoatiable with a normal vehicle. A pleasant drive with lovely views. Nienke and Jaap were extremely welcoming. And even as the only guests for one of the night we still received great attention. Decent clean rooms and newly done bathrooms.... More

Wellvale Private River Resort, is a picturesque Resort, with little Holland styled chalets and beautiful majestic mountains as a backdrop. The view is amazing and definitely a place to go to if you are seeking a quite romantic getaway. The service is excellent, we arrived late on a Sunday with the kitchen closed, the hosts were more than willing to... More
