Egweni is a farm-style, architecturally designed establishment providing stylish accommodation which presently consists of five Double Rooms, two Single Rooms and a Family Unit.

The tasteful décor, good service and view over the beautiful Vaal River, with its breath taking rapids, creates a relaxed ambience in which you can completely unwind.

The owners of Egweni are presently developing the second phase, which includes four state-of-the-art conference rooms, and a further eight en-suite bedrooms. Future developments in the planning stage include a restaurant, a chapel for intimate weddings, stylish picnic areas, a wellness centre, and various entertainment areas along the river frontage to ultimately create one of the most luxurious and popular resorts along the Vaal River.

"The Art festival at the venue"

Our confirmed reservation was for one room with a stoep but we were re-allocated to a totally different room withour prior notice The pillowcases were slept on and had to be changed The light in the bathroom were out and not replaced even after we told reception The location of the room was not ideal It was noisy with all the festival attendees walking right in front of our door. The television was not working properly. The bedding (duvet cover) was old and had little holes in it (although clean) the mattress was lumpy and needs to be replaced. The ceiling fan was noisy when not on the lowest setting.

"The River "

The rooms were horrid. We stayed in room 1 & room 4, were room one is right at the entrance. There were lizards in the rooms; that was just wrong. Please make the doors more secure against creepy crawlies. Please put proper fitting linen and use base covers.
