I have eaten several meals at Broadwater now and each one has been delicious. The view of the river through the large glass panels is beautiful. Broadwater is a jewel that one might not expect to find in the middle of Douglas.
Broadwater offers SO much! Peace and tranquillity! Water sports Fun. Fishing. Great food! Meet locals at the bar area. Country Retreat. Very reasonably priced & Friendly attentive service.
Awesome place to relax and forget about the world out there. Everyone is friendly and welcomes you with open smiles, this impressed us. The camping site where we stayed is very impressive, clean and accessible. The restaurant and bar facilities are top notch. What impressed us the most is when Marius and Sunette, the managing couple’s son Marnus, jumped into the river and swam half way into the river just to rescue my son’s soccer ball. What’s even more impressive is that he did this without us even asking. Broadwater, you guys are top notch. A special thanks to the people who made our stay even more special. They are Hans, UB, Oom Doep, Michelle, Elizabeth, Regina, Boouy, the kitchen staff, Marnus , Marius and Sunnet. You guys rock.
Most beautiful resort in the northern Cape! By far!!
Amazing hospitality! Do yourself a favour and go stay or camp here!
And be sure to look out for the eagles!
We liked camping here. Lot of birdlife at the waters edge.

Very nice place with a beutiful view.
This place sure is quite a gem. From the friendly staff to the pristine and tranquil setting…set on the banks of the Vaal river,you can’t ask for a more picturesque setting. We had our electricity trip after 11pm on friday eve..after a call to reception,30mins later staff had made alternative plans and we were sorted. I will definitely always recommend Broad waters..Had an absolute blast with the kids.
The place looks nice.I will advise you to do booking prior .imagine driving 100km to go to the restaurant based on the informations online,just to be told they cant help you because they have a private function.😒
Broadwaters is definitely beautiful, no arguing that! What is a great dissapointment is that they are inconsistent with their drinks prices at the bar. We paid for 5 Jagerbombs R240 to just pay for 3 R90 half an hour later. This make me think that something might be going on that shouldn’t as it is not the first time that we experienced this. Previously our breakfast bill was charged twice on our credit card and they didn’t do anything to rectify it. Love the venue but I feel done in everytime I go there.
We’ve been to Broadwater a few times. No matter the weather or time of year, It’s a beautiful place to visit! It’s peaceful and serene, we stayed in one of their lovely chalets but the camping area looks pretty well equipped too! the restaurant is beautiful. Overall a great experience 🙂
Wow…had an aweaome time. Clean and homely atmosphere. Staff and manager very friendly and accomodative.Will defnitely go there again soon!!!

Day visitors allowed to braai on a campsite. They even get a key to use one of the toilets. Loud music and drinking all day long. Very disturbing to all the campers. Campsites cleaned daily and very neat. Staff very friendly.
What a lovely place. Feels like it has to be somewhere abroad on a small island. Staff overall VERY friendly. Taxi came in every day to drop off staff and remained there and played LOUD music but was sorted by staff the moment we complained… Unfortunately the service at the restaurant is not good at all. The restaurant is the most beautiful focus point of the whole Estate but the service is just not up to standard. I would visit again but don’t think I will try the restaurant again.

I loved this place so much we thought it to be the perfect wedding venue but to my surprise the service we received was beyond disappointing. The lady at the front desk has a bad attitude and to top it she askes me for my email address to send me their quotation (mind you I emailed and called more than a month ago and still received no reply) she confirmed I’d receive the email the same day this was 23 November and today it is the 28th November still no word keep in mind I drove 100km !
I’d really recommend the owner to check his staff, because of them he/she just lost a very Acquisitive couple.
