We stayed in one of the river cabins and enjoyed it thoroughly. The cabin was very neat. The family- and business history leaflet was an enjoyable read. We had a nice view of the river from the veranda.

What a place!!! Clean, well appointed, two pools, a river with a jetty and plenty of places for youngsters to play safely. This is an absolute gem of a place. Dinner by previous appointment and a lovely breakfast in a beautiful setting. 2nd visit in 4 years and will be back again before another 4 years pass. Seriously good value...

great address in the Addo area. Staff is super professional, the views are amazing, the rooms comfortable. Only hicup: guests should be advised not to use the common kitchen after 10.00 pm or the sleep of other guests can be affected

Very good starting point for visiting Addo Elephant park. Really an excellent place to stay in a beautiful environment at the riverside. Our River cabin had a nice view from the veranda and own braai. Owner and personal were very friendly and helpful too (great assistance by application - printing and email). Canoe for free and 2 swimming pools available.

Absolutely stunning place with beautiful grounds, two lovely swimming pools, a gorgeous river that you can canoe up and down and a great play area for kids. Kids were free to roam but always in ear shot so it was perfect for the whole family! Very helpful staff!

Awesome place - peaceful and private. A few things - needed the fan fixed in our room - the downstairs one is broken, the blind doesn't close on the big window in the main room too so you can't shut out the light, and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils but a egg lifter would have been useful :)...

We stayed in the treetops cabin ... Two bedrooms separated by a kitchen and lounge. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Each bedroom had a bathroom attached. It was compact but did the job. The terrace had a BBQ and outdoor setting which was perfect for eating breakfast and looking out over the orchard next door. The kitchen was well...

Such a pity. Avoca River Cabins has been a very pleasant experience but the reception by Mr Riaan has been objectionable and rude. The Manager obviously doesn’t bear who doesn’t speak English perfectly, in fact, just arrived he told our daughter : since your parents do not know to speak English I will speak to you .... In all our...

Beautiful gardens. Peaceful and very relaxing atmosphere. Big deck to sit and watch the sunset. Play area big enough for kiddies to play,with swings etc. Children enjoyed the fishing at the river. Kids also very excited with their sleeping arrangements, they climbed a ladder to get to their beds.

Amazing and extremely friendly hosts and a lovely restaurant area with the most unreal views. Our tree lodge was very quaint but we felt it needed a little investment in lighting, air con (or even an air con machine) and the bathroom really needs updating. I only had one towel and a hair towel would have been useful. The shared...
