Hotel does not accept dogs. Free parking and petrol station about 50 m from hotel (big advantage as the other petrol station is about 60 km far). Friendly for families. Friendly... More

A great experience at a hotel with all round friendly and helpful staff. We had a superior room on the fist floor with a view overlooking the well known ferry. The room is well appointed with all the aspects of a country hotel you would expect. It was very cold but the two panel heaters in the room did manage... More

On this our second visit to the Malgas ferry we stayed over for one night at the Malagas Hotel where we had enjoyed lunch previously. Lovely old establishment, comfortable rooms and friendly service from our hosts and staff. Dinner and breakfast were good, leaving us well rested and prepared for our onward journey to Cape Town. We will return some... More

Spent a long weekend full board at very reasonable rates. Enjoyed ourselves immensely. Food and accommodation was excellent. Staff are very friendly and service was great. Cannot wait to return. Located on the banks of the Breede River and using pontoon to cross with our vehicle was an experience

It is just over two years since we were last at the Malagas Hotel, and in the interim there has been considerable refurbishment. I understand that as a result, the Hotel is now officially classed as "Four Star". We stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms. It was very comfortable and because it was extremely cold we had both... More

I loved the place the moment I walked in. Spacious and immaculate room. It has every amenity needed - we were in an upstairs room with our own balcony. Beautiful views.

We took a Sunday drive to Malagas, and although Malagas is quite remotely situated, the hotel is well worth the drive. The area is very peaceful and the view of the Breede River from the dining hall is just picturesque. Food was average, but the prices are very affordable.
