"Tranquility and peace"

"I loved the views and peaceful surroundings Melissaw welcomed us in a friendly manner. She told us that we could use the self-catering unit, which was better suited for 4 adults, and said our breakfast is still included. She told us about the braai packs and wood. We enjoyed a lovely braai on the deck whilst enjoying the view. Although the unit was comfortable, the bathroom needs love and tender care...like tiles on the floor."

"Unfortunately I can't recommend this place- downright dirty and neglected."

"There were a problem with allocation of the room when we arrived but was sorted out quickly. Beautiful view of the river. The food was great but very limited menu. Breakfast can also be improved on. Room was clean but very basic, battled with the taps in the shower. Great stop over after a long drive, just arrange for dinner to be served before the time.Good value for money."

"Relaxing on the River Bank"

"What a way to end our Xmas break relaxing. This is a gem on the banks of the Orange River in the Gariep Dam Area. There is no need to see the dam when you have such beauty and nature around you. The stars are also an attraction in the evening. The staff are friendly and the self catering accommodation rustic to fit in with the surrounds."

"Waschbank is located in such a beautiful spot. The rooms are really simple but the view of the river more than makes up for it. Would most definitely come back!"
