About The Breede River Resort and Fishing Lodge

The hotel’s private harbour is right in front of you. Now step from your balcony right onto the jetty. Watch the arriving fishing boats, enjoying a refreshment in our cozy lounge or at our fully licensed bar or our A la’ Carte Restaurant. This is not a dream it is reality at our beautiful Lodge.

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.

The room was cozy and clean. We were right on the waters edge. Watched fisherman leaving on those boats and those on the quay catching fish. Had dinner at the Pili Pili restaurant to live musicians playing. Very enjoyable time, sorry we didn't stay longer. We will definitely be back.
