We spent the night of 28 July 2022 at this stunning lodge on our way back from Madikwe Game Reserve. I cannot complement the staff enough for the friendly welcome and efficient service right from showing us our room to serving us drinks from the bar. Furthermore, we had the company of affectionate cat Dottie which moved in with from the moment we opened our door to beautifully decorated room 3, and left only the following morning! Unfortunately this time I could not enjoy a dip in the inviting blue pool or go for a hike in the hills behind the lodge (I chose to go for a run instead). Thank you to all the staff who made our stay here something very special. Next time I hope to stay much longer. Kind regards, Riana Rosenbaum
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lemoenfontein Game Lodge - it is an ideal stopover point on the drive through the Karoo en route to Capetown. In talking to other guests it was obvious that the lodge has built up a good word of mouth reputation and would appear to have become a well known establishment where you can have a very relaxing and enjoyable break from your long journey. Very nicely decorated airy rooms with luxuriously comfortable beds providing a very good night’s sleep after a long drive. Drinks and the Buffet Dinner served on the outside veranda with views over the reserve was a delightful experience on a warm balmy summer evening. The quality of the food and the friendly and attentive service was excellent and our overall experience was quite exquisite - we will definitely be back for more of the same.
Diese wunderbare Lodge liegt etwas außerhalb von Beaufort West, mitten in einer herrlichen Natur vor einer Bergkette. Vom gut ausgeschilderten Einfahrtstor fährt man rund 5 Km auf einer Schotterpiste und steht vor einer grünen Oase in dieser trockenen Halbwüste. Bei der Anfahrt wird man bereits von Antilopen und Gnus begleitet. Die großzügigen Außenanlagen sind sehr schön angelegt und am Pool kann man sich vor dem tollen Bergpanorama herrlich erfischen. Die Zimmer sind klein, aber gemütlich eingerichtet und bestens gepflegt. Besonders schön ist die große Terrasse mit herrlichem Weitblick, wo man zum Frühstück und Abendessen verwöhnt wird. Großes Kompliment an die Küche, das 3 gängige Abendessen war klasse! Der Service ist außergewöhnlich gut, sehr aufmerksam und überaus freundlich. So erlebt man gastfreundschaftliche Aufmerksamkeit selten. Wir können das Lemoenfontain sehr empfehlen.
Fantastiese atmosfeer, heerlike kos en ongelooflik Dit was 'n ongelooflike ervaring by 'n pragtige plek. Die gastehuis se stoep kyk uit oor die Karoovlaktes en die hele ervaring was een van rus en vrede ná die lang tog. Waar kry 'n mens nog kelners en gastehuisbestuurders wat jou van die eerste oomblik op jou naam aanspreek? Die kos was heerlik en die diens was vriendelik en baie persoonlik. Dit was 'n baie spesiale ervaring. Ons gaan definitief weer terug - soos die 10 ander paartjies wat die jaar weer terug was ná verskeie vorige besoeke.
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. The meals were fantastic. The Karoo setting is stunning.
Ons was aangenaam verras met ons verblyf by Lemoenfontein Game Lodge. Ongelooflik mooi, uitstekende vriendelike diens! Kos was keurig en geurig voorberei. Ons sal jul defnitief weer besoek, asook aanbeveel. Groete en beste wense
Thank for the best service that we experience in Beaufort West You can better in the food but otherwise you have a wonderful place
A rather belated thank you for a wonderful stay at Lemoenfontein on Saturday 5th December. We weren't quite sure what to expect but we received such a warm welcome, the accommodation and food were first class and all your staff were so helpful and attentive. I will be writing a review on Tripadvisor but wanted to thank you personally for the hospitality. Kind regards Vivienne McCallum
An oasis in the middle of the mountain wilderness We really enjoyed the hospitality, the ambiance, the food and the relaxed atmosphere at this beautiful place and hope to come back some time.
Thank you for a very comfortable stay at your lodge. Trudy was brilliant and your staff helpful and efficient, for which thank you. We had a very good dinner and slept extremely well in your comfortable and cosy beds, snug as bugs! Thank you. A great find and close to the N1 so would recommend you to anyone silly enough to do our drive to Cape Town and back in a short space of time! Kind regards Merry
We discovered Lemoenfontein in the AA travel guide about 5 years ago and have been using it as a stopover on the way to Mossel Bay ever since. When you have been dodging trucks on the N1, the quietness, relaxation and friendliness at the lodge is a welcome relief. The accommodation is excellent and the food outstanding, particularly when you sit outside on the verandah and have this wonderful view of the Karroo in the evening while eating supper. The friendliness of Kobus and the staff is something to be admired. If you have never been to Lemoenfontein – try it for a pleasant experience.
Thank you for the wonderful stay we had in Lemoenfontein on both days when we spent time with you. We enjoyed every minute of it and just wish it could be longer. Perhaps next time for more days than 1 at a time. Thank you to all your staff and personnel that made it truly unforgettable. Kind regards
A wonderful place It is so nice that this unique place has been preserved for us to enjoy all this many years later
Thank you for a fabulous stay, we love your place and hope to visit again in a few years. Cheers. Greg & jenny
Yesturday we came home, back to the European summer, 12 degree Celcius! We had some fine days after the Karoo and the journey back home went well, thank you. We remember still very lively our days at Lemoenfontein! It was one of our highlights in SA. It was and is a pleasure to tell our family and friends about it. We wish you all the best, a fine winter with the desired amount of rain. Very best regards
We stayed at ‘Lemoenfontein’ last month, and have finally returned from our travels. I just wanted to say how much I finally enjoyed staying there, having of course had many friends who have been there already. The gardens are so beautifully maintained along with everything else, it certainly did not go unnoticed. Best wishes, Lew Rood
What a lovely relaxing overnight spot. We had a beautiful room, a charming hostess and waitrons and excellent meals. Added to this we had a few hours of fantastic birding in the surrounding game farm and garden. I would recommend this stop over to anyone on route through Beaufort West. Next time we will spend a few extra days though. Thank you.
Highlight of our trip. Dear Lemoenfontein Lodge owners and staff, You gave us a wonderful stay on the 15th and 16th January 2014. It was simply an unforgettable experience to sit on the veranda, eating our dinner whilst watching the sun go down over the Karoo and very far off Swartberg Mountains. Magical! Thank you. Charles and Ayleen
We would like to thank all for the excellent service and superb cuisine we received and the attention to detail experienced. Also thanks once again for being able to help us out at the last minute due to my own stupid error. Quietly I am grateful that I made the mistake we could then spend some more time there. We are very impressed with the changes to the units compared to the previous year braai,cupboards, wash basin, steps leading straight to the lawn etc.
Eine Oase 🙂 von mir bekommt ihr sogar * * * * * Sterne. Die Anlage ist super schön, Zimmer groß (vorallem das Bad) ein kleiner feiner Pool inkl. Liegen und einen Papagei der einen hin und wieder besucht 🙂 Das sehr gute (Abend-) Essen mit einen phantastischen Ausblick,genial. Zudem noch die ehrliche Gastfreundlichkeit P E R F E C T
Last week we paid a return visit to Lemoenfontein. We have enjoyed our previous visits, but this last visit really deserves a comment. The sense of history that characterizes this establishment is great food for the imagination! Having a candlelit dinner on the verandah overlooking the plains of Beaufort West, one can just see the British nobleman (who built this lodge) and his buddies, relaxing after a day's hunting! History aside, we were warmly greeted by Orbert, and shown to our beautiful room. It had all the extras that make for a comfortable stay ( flat screen TV, tea coffee making facilities, Wi Fi, adaptors for charging gadgets etc) The bathroom is well appointed and (I think) newly refurbished. The dinner was good and graciously presided over by Marianna, Orbert and the owners of Lemoenfontein. The following morning's breakfast was extensive and delicious. Here Marianne is wonderful at engaging all her guests. The gardens are an oasis in the otherwise arid veld of Beaufort West. The pool set in rolling lush lawns is a welcome respite from Beaufort's summer heat. The staff all deserve special mention. Their interaction with all the guests was great. This property is more than a stop-over, it's a special treat on an otherwise monotonous stretch of our fabulous countryside
Dear Ingrid Every word is true – and more. We wish we could stay more often! You should all be sooooo proud of what you offer – and the passion with which you do so. We can feel your love for Lemoenfontein. We only stay there now and then, and you and Lemoenfontein have crept into our hearts in such a big way! Sorry it took so long to do the review – things have been rough. Very cold here in Simonstown – mountains covered in snow and we have had rain and hail on and off all day! Hope you have a warmer weekend than we are in for, and that your beautiful establishment is full of long weekenders enjoying your warm and excellent hospitality! Wish we were there! Kindest regards to you and to Kobus Take care
A Big Thank You!!!! Dear Ingrid and Kobus I trust this e-mail finds you well. I’ve stayed at Lemoenfontein three times to date and I just want to use this opportunity in thanking you for your incredible, amazing and fantastic guest farm and facilities. By far the best on the N1 north. Thank you also for always being friendly and for making your guests feel welcome. Be assured of my continued support and of course reference to other friends and business partners who also travel past Beaufort West on a regular basis. Wishing you all the best and thank you for providing us with a “home” away from home. May you have a wonderful day.
Hello Ingrid and Kobus, We would like to thank you again for a fantastic and unforgettable stay at Lemoenfontein Game Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed your personal hospitality, touch to details and would definitely recommend your place to our guests. Hope the birdfeeder is giving you already lots of joy! Looking forward to welcoming you at Farr Out soon! Best wishes from the West Coast
A Big Thank You!!!! Dear Ingrid, Jenny, Laura, Kobus, Moos, and all the Kitchen staff My heart is filled with so much thanks and happiness and I really cannot express the joy I feel! I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you whom played a part in assisting my fiancé with his preparations! I am sure you made his task easier as well, by all prior arrangements and supporting him where necessary. Your warm greetings and friendliness are so welcoming and I am so pleased that I could spend my “engagement weekend” with all of you! The memories at Lemoenfontein will be with me for the rest of my life (and I’m sure Craig feels that way to), and I can assure you that we will be returning every year as we felt so at home! Thank you once again for everything you ALL have done! It is highly appreciated J Warm Regards
Very beautiful lodge in a game drive area. All friendly and kindly staff. Amazing diner and nice location.
Ingrid and team We have just returned to the UK after our visit to South Africa and wanted to thank everyone at Lemoenfontein for an excellent stay. In June we shall be looking at our trip for next January/February to SA and have no doubt we shall be in contact to book with you again. Many thanks and kindest regards
