Stayed at Klein Waterval for one night and didn't have much time to explore the property. The room I stayed in was clean and pleasant enough, however nothing exceptional and quite small. The bed was comfortable (double) with clean sheets. Basic amenities were provided and the room had a small tv. Doors led out to a small balcony overlooking the... More

I found the lodge clean, neat and tidy. Ezna was very kind and caring and helped make our stay really memorable. We would stay there again without the slightest hesitation. Somehow it feels like home.

We were very impressed with Klein Waterval Riverside Lodge as a bed and breakfast. The farm setting was something different and good for the mind and soul. The rooms, breakfast and service were first class.

Already for fourteen year, it feels like coming home. Great people who are paying a lot of attention to their guests. The KWR Lodge is located in a beautiful area, from where you easily can make a lot of (daily) roundtrips.

Receptionist/hostess - Edna (?) - the jewel in Trevor's crown. We loved our stay and look forward to our next stay. Trevor and his staff could not have been more helpful, especially in assisting us with a problem over our rental car's locking mechanism. All in all, a wonderful stay in beautiful surroundings.

Lovel location with amazing views over the vines and mountains. The rooms are simple, breakfast was delicious and Ezna wonderfully efficient with nothing too much trouble. Great restaurant recommendations which she then booked for us.

Although we arrived after the check in had closed there was a very kind lady to greet us and it was not a problem. The location is perfect nestled among the vineyards and a river running through the property. The rooms in the old farm house have a real authentic country feel. There is also a lovely swimming pool area... More

I had a very pleasant stay here but two aspects were a bit disappointing: very limited television channels and no wifi in the room which was a bit frustrating. Maybe these features could be improved? The setting however was perfect.
