This place is simply incredible - magnificent beauty in the middle of the wilderness. Super friendly staff, beautiful houses with everything you could possibly need, and just an amazing place for a secluded getaway. I couldn't recommend this place enough!

Driving from CPT, the last 34km happens to be off-road. Mount Ceder forgot to mention this and probably for good reason. If you don't drive a Bakkie or SUV the last 34km will take you about 2 hours to complete, that is if you don't get a couple a flat tyres in which case you have no cell phone reception. When we arrived 2 hours late, reception mentioned to us that they thought we got a flat tyre "where visitors usually get flat tyres". The whole reason we booked a place in Ceder is because it's about 2 hours drive from CT. Took us about 4+ hours to get there. Could really cause a lot of damage to normal hatch or sedan which in turn will cost a small fortune to get fixed / towed, as the nearest town is Ceres, 100km away. I'm sure I am not the only one that has mentioned this before. Mount Ceder needs to be a bit more transparent and stop withholding info in order to fill bookings. I doubt guests return...

We stayed for 2 nights and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The accommodation was well appointed, very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the easy access to the nearby river for swimming and boating. The breakfast on the veranda was outstanding and the staff very helpful. Will be going back soon!

We had great time, but the older gentleman working at Receiption on Saturday must improve his people skills. The lady that worked the previous day can upskill him, she makes you feel welcome He can be a bit more more friendly, helpful and make the guests feel welcome. Tks, we'll definitely see you again

What a place to was heavenly. The drive to the Mount Ceder was beyond believe.....on arrival at the reception I was under the believe that our lodge was ready for occupancy, however on arrival the cleaners were still there, this was beyond the designated time of arrival stated by Mount Ceder. This did not detract from the first class service that my family received especially from Gladstone who was a fountain of knowledge and a shear delight to converse with. Mount Ceder should be proud of such an employee!!!. Lastly we must not forget the new chef....all who travel to this location must sample the culinary delights of such an outstanding individual. Mount Ceder you have a star on your hands there, the evenings meals are just exemplary, he rivals dishes from the European palates ....... This is a location that should not be touches the hardest of souls.....Thank you Mount Ceder....Thank-you Gladstone

At the top of the pass leading to Mount Cedar Lodge from Clanwilliam to Ceres my Landrover suffered 2 flat tyres. Disconcerting, but as I had one spare, a compressor and a foam tyre inflator I felt confident we would soon be on our way. Nothing worked so I drove at snails pace down the pass to Mount Cedar with my 3 British relatives and my wife trudging behind. Lucky for us a gentleman stopped to assist and drove the ladies to paradise, he then returned to tell us the good news that our women folk were in good hands which we found to be true about 45 minutes later. The reception was amazing, within seconds we all had cold drinks in our hands, the offending wheels had been rermoved from my vehicle and we were booked into most amazing accommodation. We stayed one night only but can strongly recommend Mount Ceder Lodge for their service, hospitality and quality of accommodation. Thank you from all 5 of us Paul Battersby

This was our second stay at Mount Ceder and we will definately be making it an annual one!. The accommodation is clean,spacious and well looked after, the setting is simply beautiful, the surroundings are tranquil, and the service is excellent, from our booking to reception, to general upkeep around the cottage. I hope too many don't find this treasure so that we can come back all the time!. Our whole family - of six - simply love this place.
