We crossed over from The Cango Caves through the Schwartzberg pass and found this friendly and comfortable B&B in Prince Albert. We would like to come back here. There is a lot to see and discover in this little town in the middle of the Karoo dessert. An oasis at thoe foto of the Schwartzberg mountain.

A regular haunt in this picturesque and historic town that has maintained and enhanced its high standards under new management. Well appointed and immaculate rooms. Beautiful peaceful pool area and garden. Considering the category & price range, the breakfasts could be more generous with a greater variety.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 'De Bergkant Lodge' is a historical Cape Dutch GuestHouse located in the beautiful, historical town of Prince Albert at the foot of the dramatic Swartberg mountains in the Great Karoo. The 'De Bergkant Lodge' offers their guests four luxurious Suites with lounge, bedroom and en suite bathroom, and five equally well-appointed luxurious Double Rooms with en suite bathroom. All rooms have ceiling fans, air-conditioning, tea- and coffee facilities, TV (with DStv) and most have under-floor heating. All the bathrooms have our famous double showers, Victorian baths and under-floor heating for chilly winter days (which occur just occasionally). Fluffy cotton towels ensure that you feel pampered. All beds are either twin- or king size. Our linen is 100% pure cotton. Breakfast for our guests is served either inside in our poolside dining room or on the terrace in the garden beneath the trees. Much of our fare on our breakfast buffet comes from the village and local farms in and around Prince Albert. Prince Albert is famous for its deciduous fruit and the milk, yoghurt and prize-winning cheese from Gay's Dairy. Guests will enjoy at the 'De Bergkant Lodge' a breakfast which is a delight in taste and presentation. The secluded gardens boast two large saltwater swimming pools: a 15m pool surrounded by verdant lawns and a 10m walled, private pool. We also offer a sauna and steam bath and hidden in a private garden you will find a small "star" bath. ... more   less
