About Oviston Sunrise Lodge

The little town Oviston is situated on the southern banks of the Gariep dam.
The Lodge, however, does not front the dam, but is about 15 - 20 minutes walk from it.

We do offer a variety of rooms: Double rooms, Family Units, as well as Self-catering cottages, with most of our Double and family rooms en-suite shower rooms.

We also offer a diner where we prepare evening meals and breakfast as an optional extra.

We do not have a licensed bar, but our guests are more than welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages along.

We arrived and found that the complex is being renovated. The dining area is completely bare, and some of the rooms are being worked on.The staff are extremely friendly, and helpful. With the work going on they aren't always on top of things, but make an effort to make you comfortable once you're there.The rooms are cosy and the beds clean and very comfortable. Tea, coffee, milk and a kettle were found, and they tried to find some supper for us. The only bad part was the water. The pressure is very low and hot water doesn't easily flow.

While the accommodation was clean and fairly comfortable it is very rustic.Unfortunately the rooms are not serviced and our rubbish bin was overflowing after two days. We did not have soap in our bathroom and when the toilet paper was finished it was not replenished. The owners were extremely welcoming. Riaan was very helpful and even took us fishing. The dinner (sheep on a spit) on Old Years night was fantastic and very reasonably priced.
