There is a 60km gravel road to get to the hotel, but well worth the dust! The staff are very helpful and cheerful. Our room was very spacious and clean,with a tea and coffee station including a small fridge. A lovely garden with pool to sit and relax next to the Breede River. If you feel energetic you may hire a canoe and paddle up the river.

Malagas Hotel is great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The accommodation is very comfortable and clean. There is a set menu for breakfast and supper with a varied selection of meals daily (supper). The quality and presentation of the food is very good and copious amounts. Both the supervisory staff and waiters went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We left the Malagas Hotel after spending three nights stay feeling refreshed, invigorated and ready to face th hustle and bustle again. We would definitely like to return again, particularly during the wet winter months when hopefully the surrounding areas won't be as dry as currently experienced during this visit.

We came here for coffee before crossing the Breede River on the last remaining hand pulled ferry in the world, so we are told. The ferry is a must visit as two or three hard working men and sometimes women haul the ferry across the river by pulling against a wire hauser with a harness. The hotel is old fashioned but has a minute pool and there are boats to hire to go upstream. It seems comfortable but simple.

Stayed for one night in hotel as guests for a wedding. Had a family room which was neat and tidy and very nice size with a balcony which overlooked sweet sheep with their babies. Next time I want a river view room. Grounds are lovely and clean. This was a beautoful venue for a wedding. Front reception staff was lovely for the whole stay (one lady a bit rude and abrupt) but luckily one rotten apple didnt spoil this stay for us! What a lovely quaint hotel with beautiful setting! Food was divine and a good breakfast was served. We are definitely coming back again amd for longer this time :)

Every thing was first class the room was comfortable and being with the family for the Christmas period was very special. We had a very enjoyable trip down the river with the grandchildren on the houseboat.
Great way to spend the holiday.
