We stayed at Stanford River Lodge for 3 nights whilst in Stanford for a wedding. It's a wonderful and peaceful location as each roon has it's own private verandah which looks onto the Klein river, with the beautiful mountains in the background. The rooms are clean and comfortable (ours was a self-cateting one). The hosts are very friendly and John gave good tips for mountain-biking routes. Definately recommend this venue if you're coming to Stanford.

Our 2 day stay at Stanford River Lodge was memorable. John and Valda welcomed us early evening and made sure we settled in well. For the rest of the stay their staff and they were discreetly around whenever we had a need. Although the place was fully booked, it was wonderfully private and we felt as if the place belonged to us. The spacious room was suberbly decorated, and the floor to ceiling views had magnificent views over the river and mountains. We would recommend this for a quiet, tasteful and genteel country breakaway.

Room Tip: The Kingfisher bathroom has a magnificent view while taking a bath.

My wife and I stayed at Stanford River Lodge whilst over in South Africa for a wedding and we had a fabulous stay. John and Valda were extremely helpful and hospitable and give us really good advice on where to eat and drink nearby. We had the room with the four poster bed and the views from the balcony were amazing. The drive to the property is on a bit of a rough road and at least 5 mins from Stanford itself but when you get there it's well worth it. Highly recommended for a chilled out break.

We had a wonderful stay at Stanford River Lodge. A quiet, peaceful, tranquil place to stay that had us feeling relaxed and rejuvenated in no time. The owners are friendly and welcoming. It is great base for exploring Standford and the surrounding areas and attractions. The self-catering room in which we stayed (otter room) was neat, clean,private and stocked with everything you need to be able to cater for yourself. It was great to be able to just jump into the canoe and go for a paddle down the river. Barbecues on the deck overlooking the river, refreshing swim in the pool, afternoon naps and exploring the surrounding attractions had us feeling like we should have booked for another night. Thank you very much Valda.

We wished we could have stayed longer in this very peaceful retreat. The room was very spacious and well appointed with lovely balcony overlooking the Klein river. Valda was very helpful and arranged a great river bird watching trip with Tim who was very knowledgeable.
Definitely recommended.
