Located in the magical Oliphant’s River Valley, Clanwilliam Lodge is a colloquial gem emerging off the beaten track, oasis-like in its unforgiving semi-desert habitat. Only a two and 1/2 hours’ drive from Cape Town, the lodge offers 32 luxurious air-conditioned rooms, a poolside restaurant, Cocktail Bar and delicious cuisine.
All rooms are air-conditioned and some have en-suite bathroom with Shower, other a wall separating room and bathroom. Junior and Presidential Suites have the option of a balcony. All our Rooms have showers, excepting the Junior executive and Presidential have an open plan bath and shower separately.
Our conference facilities can cater for up to 30 delegates. Come and spoil yourself. Visitors should prepare to enjoy balmy summer days lounging on Bedouin daybeds at the pool and hot windless nights in pure understated luxury. This is where half measures are only available on request from the bar.
A hearty buffet breakfast is served in the restaurant every morning and is included in your stay. Choose from our light lunch menu and dinner is either á la carte or an extensive buffet spread. Picnic hampers are available on request, or experience the nearby Lambert’s Bay eatery called Muisbosskerm for a sublime seafood treat.
Founded in 1732, the picturesque Cape Dutch homestead of Clanwilliam is one of the 10 oldest towns in the country. Tucked away at the foot of the Cederberg Mountains and perched on one of the country’s favourite dams, its rich settler history offers a central location for a variety of attractions from flower viewing to Bushman art and a range of water sports. In keeping with the rich history of the area, Clanwilliam Lodge itself is a transformed girls’ hostel, originally built by the Provincial Administration in 1916. Much of the furnishings in the lodge are made from wood from the original building. Clanwilliam is also famous for growing and cultivating Rooibos Tea and for its original leather “veldskoene” factory. Clanwilliam is 212 km from Cape Town and a two and 1/2 hour drive by car.
