Welgekozen is a great stop over place in the perfect location...despite being close to the main road it is remarkably quite and peaceful. The beds were every comfortable and linen of good quality. There is a secure parking on offer and a security guard walking around the premises throughout the night which ment that we didn't have to unpack the... More

This was probably one of the saddest hospitality disappointments I have had in a very long time and I say sadly because I do actually love the place. Unfortunately I have never felt so unwelcome as showing up at this beautiful manor house and being welcomed only by a locked door. After about 5 min the owner showed up at... More

I have stayed at Welgekozen Country Lodge for a very, very long period. Betty, Bob and the whole staff made all possible efforts to make me feel like at home. I surely did and I'll be grateful for the rest of my life. Why I chose Welgekozen among all the options in Piet Retief? The spacious and well equipped rooms.... More

I would never consider staying anywhere else in Pietretief! Our stay at Welgekozen was fabulous and all you need. The rooms are huge, spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious and clean and the shower great. We left before breakfast but apparently it is amazing too! Thank you Welgekozen for a comfortable and great night!

You don't expect this comfort and professionalism in a little town like Piet Retief but Bob & Betty run an exceptionally fine B&B establishment. For Room 6, we could park our car almost next to the bed! Although on the main road, which is where it would seem just about every truck in SA comes to rest, our room was... More

This is an awesome place. Spacious rooms, clean and nice bathroom. The most friendly people, helping out when needed. A big clean pool, seats, lovely bar. And we could eat diner there. A 3 course meal from the chef. so we did not have to drive anymore the evening.

We booked at the last minute as we were passing through Piet Retief on our way to KZN Natal. It is a lovely lodge with extremely nice rooms. Everything was perfect, and the bar was well stocked with a variety of wines and spirits (R95 for a bottle of decent South African red wine). Should we pass this way again... More
