This B&B is rated as 3 star which is correct. The view is 5 star but the accommodation is 3 star, mainly because of the compact size of the rooms. That said, the rooms are clean, quiet, comfortable and safe. Breakfast is consistent with a 3 star B&B. Hosts are welcoming and we would be happy to return.

as the name says VIEW LODGE , and that sure is 100% correct. stunning BNB overlooking the gariep dam with amazing views. we stayed in the 2 bed family unit and these were beautiful, we had a gas braai on the balcony overlooking the dam that was fantastic. A really tasty breakfast was served in a beautiful dining area. We were 4 couples travelling back from Botswana and had an overnight stop, the lodge had secure parking that could take all our vehicles as well as safari trailers. Great lodge and friendly service from the owner.

Room tip: all rooms have beautiful views over the dam. Family units were great

En route to Kruger National Park, we booked one night’s stay at View Lodge.
We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. The view from the balcony was breathtaking, especially during sunset and sunrise.
Breakfast was totally scrumptious, what a treat.

A quaint , beautiful little town. Next time we’ll stay for two nights.
