Lovingly refurbished in the truest authenticity, with a classic contemporary touch here and there. The new honeymoon room is truly romantic and is a treat. Breakfasts are delicious, looking out onto the pool and garden. It has a magic about it - I always make a wish when walking through the secret garden!

ABOUT De Bergkant Lodge

If Albert of Victorian England could today visit this beautiful Karoo village, he would be proud that it carries his name. Historic Karoo homes, quaint restaurants, typical Karoo menus and affable locals, ensure that Prince Albert enchants its visitors. At De Bergkant Lodge, Albert would find hospitality, tranquillity and many comforts for a royal traveller including three new luxury suites. This National Monument has spacious air-conditioned rooms with underfloor heating, large Victorian bathrooms, unique Cape antiques and a 15-metre salt water pool set in a lush, peaceful garden. Two private gardens, one with heated sit-pool, the other with a 10-metre salt water pool. Secure off-street parking.

Children 12+ welcome

"We really enjoyed this lovely colonial style house with its beautiful furnishings and spacious rooms. The bed was the most comfortable we slept in during our 20 night tour of the area. The garden and pools were great and the whole place had a very relaxing aura. Breakfast was very good - and would be even better with proper butter and jams, rather than the little packaged items. We look forward to a return visit."

"Excellent lodge, Best in town, Carrie was friendly and helpful, beautiful historic rooms, very large with a lounge and all the comforts. Good hearty SA breakfast. Prince Albert must be one of the best kept secret towns in SA. Lots of resturants to choose from all excellent, We could not stay to see the show at the new Showroom theatre, but we will be back!"
