The Breede River Resort and Fishing Lodge in Witsand
Imagine the delight of stepping out of your bed onto your private balcony, gazing at the unspoilt splendor of the Breede River and Indian Ocean. We are situated just off the garden route in Witsand known as the Whale Nursery of South Africa. This is where a large group of Southern Right Whales arriver annually to calf, during season you can view up to over a hundred whales in the bay.
The hotel endeavors to cater both for the local family traveler and the international traveler who would like to see a part of the real South Africa. We arrange conferences, weddings, special functions and other forms of personal catering. The hotel has a practical well equipped conference/special function room that seats up to 30 persons, and a large venue room seating up to 60 delegates. There is a variety of top class accommodation at the hotel with various options from a fully serviced hotel room to a fully self-catering unit. All accommodation comes with colour televisions and a variety of satellite channels.
Activities: We are situated in an area rich in its historical past and hugely conscious of its natural heritage and eco-sensitive surroundings.
We offer a wide range of excursion activities from wine routes, 4x4 eco trails, historical tours and visits to surrounding game farms, the De Hoop nature reserve, various “fynbos and protea” dune and coastal floral reserves. The Lodge not only has its own private harbor but also has boats to hire with or without experienced skippers available for fishing trips as well as various scenic cruises. The river, sea and coastal fishing are still excellent in this area. You will find it hard to be bored while staying with us in relative pampered luxury with so much to see and do.

Well priced , friend service
Lovely accommodation right on the Breede River. Restaurant on the premises. Comfortable stay
Amazing owners, always there to share a drink! The chalets are excellent with air-conditioning and Wi-Fi.
Best visit with beautiful places and things to see... Will see us again! For sure :-)
Ultimate escape from the madding crowd :-)Only 30km from the N2 and all the facilities of modern life, one can surrounded yourself with incredible beauty and peace and quiet to charge those batteries. The lodge is a real hidden gem.
Very neat spacious clean accomodation. Our unit had a small balcony with chairs overlooking the harbour. 4 metres away Fantastic view of the estuary. Really geared up for longer stays. Fishermen dream. Food fridge for the wife. BOOZE fridge for drinks and Deep freezer for all the fish you catch. Clear notice board at the harbour of catch size and qty per species. SUP and kayak rentals available. For kite surfing there is a boat pick up and drop off service available. No drive or long walk over the dunes required. Good restaurant and bar on site. Pool and sundeck for wife and kids. Whale watching in season also (WINTER). If you have a boat try units 101 to 107 for couple's and 1 to 4 for family's . Private stairs from your balcony to your dock.
It's a wonderful place to go to rest. Beautiful quite walk around. Be urself I will go back there again thanks for friendly staff.
Good food. Great ribs and pizzas. Beer on tap
A favoutite. Nothing special but on a good day a great meal. Beautiful views. Can get very windy.
The view is beautiful, the food really delicious, value for money, staff and people friendly! We enjoyed!
A Witsand bastion running to ruin, this establishment once the pinnacle of the sleepy fishing village of Witsand has started to slip into mismanagement it seems. While one does not normally expect the finer luxuries in a hotel dotted along a quiet piece of coast line. The simple things like clean sheets, dusted surfaces and working facilities is not a tall order. Staff were friendly and did their best with what they had. Simply maintenance and housekeeping checklist would do the hotel good.
Excellent spot. Everything you'd expect for the price. Room was very clean on arrival and staff super friendly.
