About The Hamlet Country Lodge

The Hamlet Country Lodge is situated in Prince Alfred's Hamlet near Ceres. In a small town such as Prince Alfred Hamlet, there is surprisingly lots to do. Just across the road from The Hamlet Country Lodge we have horseback riding through the apple- and pear orchards, while for the younger generation there is also paintball in town and the zip slide in Ceres.

The lodge offers accommodation in six en-suite rooms; three of which are queen rooms and the other three are twin rooms. All of the rooms have wall-heaters to take the chill off the ice-cold winters. Our rates include breakfast and in all of our six rooms we offer DStv Hotel Package. There is also a coffee station in each room for that late night cup.

In addition, we have a retro bar on site that will take you back to the seventies, but with a modern, classy twist. We serve a sophisticated pub lunch that will have you coming back for more, and we also specialize in home-baked pizzas and mini gourmet burgers, with only the freshest ingredients used in our combinations.

The lodge is very neat&tidy. The personnel is extremely friendly&helpful.The only disadvantage is the location which is in the main road and the cars&trucks speed through the town non stop.

Room was clean, tidy and extremely comfortable.The steaks we had for supper in the pub were pre-pared perfectly by Hennie. Nothing was too much trouble for Hennie, who regularly asked if everything was ok.Breakfast , also prepared by Hennie ,was also perfect. We got the feeling of real "old style" country hospitality.We will definitely be returning in the future.Shane and Theresa - Brackenfell WC.

Hamlet Country Lodge was a real disappointment. It appears to have been allowed to run down over the years. Blistering damp patches on my bedroom walls; bedside lamps that didn't work, until I insisted. Then they were easily fixed, only to find one of the light bulbs had to be replaced.  To cap it all, the nozzle of the hand-held shower fell off, leaving me with just a gush of water to shower with. The end had been corroded through, and was already loose when I switched the water on. Surely these are the kind of things that should have been checked and repaired before the customer arrived?...
