What an awesome gem!! This is an excellent hotel with an amazing view over the Gariep Dam. What stand out most are: 1. The impressive collection of interesting paintings and sculptures everywhere in the hotel. It adds a special touch to the hotel and gives the feeling of been "homely", yet elegant. 2. The general cleanliness, upkeep and maintenance of...

"Gariep Dam" is in fact the name of the town situated on the Northern Bank of the Orange river. The dam is the largest water storage facility in S.A. The town is situated approximately midway between Cape Town and Johannesburg /Durban. It is thus a convenient stopover for people motoring in either direction. I believe that people err in staying...

This hotel could have a lot of assets: an incredible location, magnificent views, a very nice swimming pool… but in the end it happens to be a very disappointing stay. The front desk staff was not very welcoming, the room itself is large but feels very impersonal. Basically two beds, a TV set, period. Towels were worn out. The swimming...

When amost 30% of your retaurant reviews are either terrible or very bad, I would be very concerned if I were the owner. All that De Rijst actualky has going for it is the beautiful view of the Gariep dam. There is a general atmosphere of apathy and negativity from the entire hotel staff - the only exception was Ashley...

Such a great place to have a spot of lunch. The views over the dam are superb. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. You can buy vouchers for internet access from the front desk. The hotel itself was busy so we could not get a table for dinner in the evening so suggest you book in...

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and lovely views with relaxing atmosphere . Nice pool for the warm Summer time . Enjoyed our stop over at this jewel in the Karoo on our journey to Cape Town. Drove via Norvalspont with it's interesting history

Traveling back from the Western Cape, we originally booked to stay at the Forever Resorts Gariep Dam, but was not happy with standards of the rooms and change our booking to the De Stijl Hotel. The hotel is tastefully done, with lovely views over the dam. The rooms are large, with a clean simple decor, with a small kitchenette.The service...

Rooms and location very good but service and food at restaurant needs attention. We arrived after a 15 hour road trip and were tired and hungry. Sadly the service at the restaurant were not good and our food not well prepared at all. The food was a total let down.
