Malagas Hotel 

Our family-friendly Malagas Hotel is a country hotel situated on the banks of the Breede River in the remote but easily accessible village of Malgas, also called Malagas, and overlooks one of the few ferries remaining in South Africa - a small pontoon ferry.

This is where time slows down to give you the relaxation and peace you need for a restful stay at the water's edge in South Africa's Overberg region, ca. a 2.5 hours drive from Cape Town. This tranquil setting within the Lower breede River Conservancy area attracts a vast variety of bird life. One of which is the protected Blue Crane (the national bird of South Africa) which can be spotted on the gravel road winding through the farmands leading to the hotel. 

Our Accommodation 

We have in total 32 bedrooms, including houseboats! Choose between double / twin and triple rooms as well as a large family room. All units at the hotel are equipped with modern amenities for your convenience such as a TV, a bar fridge and a tea/coffee station, to name a few. Apart from one small room each of our guest rooms has a patio or deck with a seating area. 

Our Facilities & Activities 

If you enjoy water sports you might want to explore the river in our 2-seater canoes, in pedalos (paddle boats) or on a cruise while you can identify the many birds in our area. If you would like to explore our region further we recommend a visit to the De Hoop Nature Reserve which is a 30 minutes drive away and offers e.g. game watching, seasonal whale watching, clear rock pools, hiking paths and mountain biking.   

Other outdoor facilities include a volley ball net and a croquet set, trampolines and a jungle gym. In summer cool off in the pool or enjoy a refreshing drink on the terrace, in the colder winter evenings warm up by the fire in the dining room or in our fully licensed Moxie's pub. 

We also offer an adult lounge with television and various board games and a kiddies lounge with various toys, games and children's movies. 

There are also plenty seating areas in our hotel where you can enjoy something to eat or drink with lovely views of the river. Apart from the formal dining room our eating areas include a covered deck and outside terrace as well as an enclosed veranda (glasshouse). Our meals are best described as South African home cooking and dinners. Our rates include half board, consisting of accommodation and a full South African breakfast as well as a hearty Table d'hôte dinner. Try our selection of vintage wines to accompany your meal.
