We only stayed one night and regtretted that the moment we arrived, we would loved to stay longer to enjoy the swimmingpool, kayaking on the river, the sweet dogs and the great food. However, we got to enjoy a great 3-course African dinner that was delicious, we slept as babies in the cabins and also enjoyed a delicious breakfast. Would...

Simply brilliant would understate the venue. Cabins are comfortable and clean. The riverside location 2nd to none. Both pools are lovely and the staff are first rate. Information packs are appropriate and breakfast well worth it even though this is self catering if you want. Will most definitely be back

Just as most lodges we visited in SA, a big pleasent surprise when entering the gate. Nice farmhouse surrounded my citrus threes. We liked the swimmingpool area with nice seats and wonderful view. The houses have enough privacy, good beds and give you a homy feeling. Only the cooking facilities could be a little better (tip!).

We had a very relaxing stay over at Avoca River Cabins. The kids loved the " castle ". We had to come back again a few weeks later. As we live in Port Elizabeth its nice to just get away and not drive so far in order to find some piece and quiet in these beautiful settings. Breakfast on the...

We stayed in the Castle with family from Germany. They were so excited like two kids to be able to sleep in such a quaint romantic bedroom on the second floor of a "castle". The grounds are to perfection. The staff very friendly. Here and there things can improve like the stairs leading to the second floor. The kitchen gets...

Yes we definitely went back. Avoca is the kind of place you visit again and again and every time its same, same, but different. Same because it is immaculately clean, friendly, well run and managed and the gardens are an absolute delight. Difference because there is continual upgrades and welcome additions being undertaking to ensure you, the guest, has a...

If I had to choose two people to find on a deserted island (except my family of course), it would probably be the couple that run this place. If you have kids and are planning to go to Addo, then go here. It's a mix of guesthouse, restaurant and a daycare. Also don't miss out on the dinner served at...

We booked a room at Avoca River Cabins last minute as we needed accommodation for one night in the area and we couldn't have been happier with our selection. Our room was in a renovated farm-house and comprised a large bedroom with a queen and single bed and an ensuite bathroom. There was also a (secure) connecting door to a...

Mostly we enjoyed the big pool and the great view. The owners are very friendly, our children loved the big playground. Fishing is also possible in the river next by the accommodation. The garden was kept immaculate with beautiful plants.

We stayed in one of the river cabins and enjoyed it thoroughly. The cabin was very neat. The family- and business history leaflet was an enjoyable read. We had a nice view of the river from the veranda.
