About Stanford River Lodge

Stanford River Lodge is situated right on the exquisite natural beauty of the Klein River, with uninterrupted views of the Klein River Mountains that run parallel to the river. B&B or self-catering rooms are available, each with en-suite bathrooms, covered patios with barbecue facilities, and views of the river. The upstairs Honeymoon Suite also boasts stunning views both from the bed and bath.

The area is ideal for paddling, rowing or boating, with a bird sanctuary on the river the one way and Stanford town on the other, or just swim in the lazy, tranquil, inviting and safe river. We offer DStv, fans for summer, underfloor heating for winter, heated towel rails, pure cotton linen, swimming pool, use of canoes, and secure parking.

We are located next to Springfontein Wine Estate, open for tasting and sales, and within close proximity to the Walker Bay Nature Reserve and new fishing trail from where excellent fishing and whale watching can be enjoyed. Hermanus, famous for its whales, and Gansbaai, renowned for its great white shark tours and cage diving, are a short drive away, as are many places of interest and other activities such as 4x4 and quad biking trails, wine estates, horse riding, mountain biking, bird watching, hiking in the mountains and many excellent restaurants, not to mention Stanford's famous river tours on the Platanna or the African Queen. Stanford River Lodge does not have facilities for children under the age of 12.

                              We had a very pleasant stay at Stanford.  We enjoyed the peace and quiet and lovely views of the mountain and river.

                              We had a pleasant stay at Stanford River Lodge. Friendly host, stunning views and comfortable rooms. Unfortunately you do hear traffic pass from which we were a bit disappointed about.

                              My husband and I spent the weekend at Stanford River Lodge in the Fish Eagle suite and all I can say is that I wish our stay had been longer. The location and views of the river are magical, and being out of the main town, it's really peaceful and tranquil. I could have stayed forever. Next time we will definitely take the opportunity to get out onto the river. Thank you Valda for a wonderful weekend.

                              Cool sea breezes and a mountainous microclimate ensure that the grapes ripen slowly which contributes to the smooth quality of the wine. Stanford Hills Winery produces an award winning Pinotage under the label of Jacksons Pinotage. The last three...
