We stayed two nights at De Bergkant for a long awaited visit to Prince Albert.
From arrival to departure we were treated like royalty by Zelia and her team.
An extremely efficient and knowledgable manager booked a table at the magnificent Gallery Cafe where we dined on wonderful food (with service to match), directed us to fantastic olive farms and gave superb advice regarding sightseeing.
The appointment of rooms superb with wonderful, silent nights to ensure an excellent nights rest.
We will be back!!

Our second visit to this lovely lodge. The rooms are spacious and so comfortable. The bathrooms are huge and so attractive. Carri is a splendid host, so helpful, friendly and charming. Breakfasts on the pool terrace and just superb. We stayed for 4 nights this year but will stay longer on our next trip to South Africa. Terrific place to stay!

Room Tip: Any of the ground floor rooms or suites.

What a wonderful surprise this grand B&B is after the magnificent Swartberg Pass. The house is magic, the rooms, bathroom and garden superb and our breakfast was five star. The interesting memorabilia in the house is worth a visit just on its own

Room Tip: We loved our room in the original homestead

We landed in PA and the accommodation we booked was slightly (lots) below par. We took a chance to see if De Bergkant had 4 rooms open and luckily for us they did!

Our host was excellent, the rooms lovely with everything you could need in it. And obviously the massive shower that will blow your mind!

The setting was beautiful, it was amazing to see green grass and lovely shady trees in a very dusty town. We also had breakfast the next day which was yummy! Everyone was very friendly and the ambiance extremely relaxing. We actually sat on the grass and just chatted and laughed. (No chairs or tables needed for our sundowners)

For a very fussy guest I give them 2 thumbs up and a very well deserved 5 stars! Will definitely return....was one of the most comfortable nights of our whole holiday! :)

This was our second visit to De Bergkant and once again we thoroughly enjoyed it. Carri gave us a warm and friendly welcome. The suite was superb and I haven't slept that well in ages. Enjoyed reading by the pool and all the beautiful trees and bird-life.

This place is beautiful and definitely worth the money! Highly recommended! The gardens are really beautiful, and the breakfast on the terrace at the pool was so tasty. There is a large pool, but also a small warm "Jacuzzi" style pool in the gardens, which is great to sit in and just relax late afternoon.

Room Tip: The suites are really spacious, but so are the double rooms!
