Please note that I am only rating their kitchen. First of all...its the only restaurant open in Clanwilliam on a Sunday evening...you would think that for the price of the food items on the menu, it should be something amazing. Not a chance...not only do you wait for over an hour but the food arrives cold, overcooked and underportioned. An... More

This lodge has so much potential, if only it had the right management to take charge of the place. Arriving at the lodge they put us in a room with no phone, out of 32 rooms, this is the best they can do!! The room is very very small, not so pleasant to stay in. The staff is ok, they... More

We recently stayed here for a cycling weekend. The staff were friendly- a bit slow but fine. The restaurant had a few other guests on this evening. We were a group of 12 people and at least half of us had to send our food back as it was cold. Generally speaking the quality of the food was poor! I... More

If you are looking for a central, comfortable and friendly place to stay the this is the place to be. The rooms are clean and spacious with a bed that is truly quality ensuring a good nights rest. The swimming setting is very nice and inviting. Unfortunately it was too cold to swim. The biggest plus for the lodge is... More

We are here for the second time so it cannot be too bad. The staff are very friendly and the new management are doing an improvement regime. Would return again. The only problem was the weather, no really warm or dry enough, but even the management cannot control that. Although Obi did try!

We stopped off at Clanwilliam Lodge on our way back from Namibia and found such friendly people working there. The chef was from our home town Paarl, and what a tonic after a long drive. She makes as amazing Surf and Turf. The waitress were so friendly and the rooms were so beautifull and inviting. What a nice welcome home!... More

A group of four friends from Kingston Jamaica, visited Clanwilliam Lodge in late January 2013 as we journeyed through parts of South Africa and into Namibia. Our only desire was to have stayed longer. We booked into the executive rooms which were aesthetically delightful, the rooms were very comfortable and the soaking tub was an absolute treat once I had... More

Disgusting breakfast buffet! Unsanitary restaurant, flys everywhere!! Unhelpful staff. Expensive at R85 pp. Rather stock up at the Spar! The grill and counter tops were filthy..... The OJ was fake and the staff were really not pleased to serve!

My wife, 2 kids and I went there in Aug 2012 for the flower session. We stayed one night in the family room. First when we were checking at reception, it looked like a funeral setup. In the front was a half tarred parking area, with dustbins. The receptionist did not bother standing to welcome us (there were two), one’s... More
