Nice b&b, old house, very quiet position, good bed, clean room and bathroom. Airconditioning! The owner, Enid, was most friendly and helpful. So was Audrey. Breakfast was served in the garden. Plentyful breakfast. Small pool. Shaded car-park behind the fence for 3 cars. Recommended!

Please be aware that this guesthouse has been sold to new owners. Obviously the situation, the garden and rooms will still be there but Wilma and Johan will not. It is possible to walk to the local restaurants but it's about 10 minutes.

We came across this place whilst trying to hunt the spring flowers we ended up missing the first bloom of spring but were in time to see the bulbs. It was rather chilly and cold to enjoy the garden and pool but nice enough to take a stroll to town and heated blankets were very welcome. Hosts super friendly felt... More

We were looking for a base from which to explore the west coast daisies and the Clanwilliam flower show, and based on Tripadvisor reviews, picked Ndedema Lodge. All I can say is that it more than lived up to it's reputation. Wilma and Johan are perfect hosts, helpful and friendly without being overbearing. The room had the best bed of... More

We stayed very recently after long trip from George. The welcome was so friendly and Wilma could not have been more welcoming and helpful. A pot of tea on our arrival and a table booked at local restaurant. Very thoughtful. Breakfast excellent.

I would highly recommend this establishment as the place to stay to explore the Northern Cederbergs district. Wilma and Johan are well established in the community and there is probably nothing they don't know about the area, and local knowledge is always very useful. The accomodation is first class with spacious rooms tastefully furnished with victoriana and four poster beds... More

It was my birthday weekend and my husband wanted to take me away for a special holiday. We chose Clanwilliam, as we had been in the area before and wanted to explore further. He booked at Ndedema Lodge, a renovated historic home at the end of a road in this beautiful town. The rooms were spacious & well appointed. The... More

This is a converted colonial farm house and accommodation. We stayed in a family room back from the house. The bed was a double king sized that could have accommodated four people. You almost got lost in it. Breakfast was well and lovingly prepared; fruit abounds in this area and this showed in the meal. We were annoyed by a... More

Ndedema is delightful. A beautiful, old style home lovingly run by Wilma for whom nothing is too much trouble. Johan was also an interesting person to talk with and he helped Andrew to carry our rather heavy car fridge! The room was gorgeous with a huge, comfy four poster bed and a massive bathroom. The garden is a joy, an... More

We so loved Ndedema! Wilma and Johan were perfect and very helpful hosts. I love historic lodges and this was a real gem! The rooms were large with high ceilings, historic furnishings and fourposter beds, so quaint! The lodge sits at the end of the street in Clanwilliam so is very quiet. We enjoyed walking around town and our hikes... More
