New refurbishment reveal at Olifants River Lodge
Johannesburg, 13 November 2023 – Dream Hotels & Resorts (DHR) is celebrating the completion of a R3,6 million revitalisation project at Olifants River Lodge this November.
Situated in Middelburg, along the Olifants River, the property recently underwent several upgrades as part of a long-term plan to preserve its legacy as an accessible and affordable holiday choice.
“Be it locals nearby or guests from further afield, everyone is welcome at Olifants River Lodge, and that’s the feeling we want to preserve as we continue our transformation journey,” says Brent Dickson, Director of DHR.
Since their official partnership in early 2023, DHR’s efforts have focused on improving operating standards, and the overall guest experience. To date, the rondavels, cabanas and apartments have received a selection of improved amenities, bathroom and kitchen upgrades, and fresh interiors. The on-site conference facilities and well-loved Gramadoelas Restaurant have also experienced a much-needed revival, with updated decor and thoughtful furnishings.
“From the artwork and curtains to the lighting fixtures and linen, it may seem like low-hanging fruit, but it’s a huge milestone considering just how long it’s been since Olifants River Lodge received regular love and attention,” Dickson adds.
As 2024 fast approaches, the team is further leveraging the property as an accessible meetings, conferences and events venue.
“With ten fully-equipped conference venues, and ample capacity of 245 beds in total, we have that winning formula for large groups and year-end functions,” says Eddie Smith, Olifants River Lodge Custodian (GM).
“Whether you’re a corporate team, a church or a school group, expect nothing less than the kind of hospitality that makes you feel right at home. We offer full catering, and have ample facilities and add-on activities for team building.”
“We’re so excited for new and return guests to experience all the new changes first-hand,” Dickson adds. “Our celebrations herald a brand new chapter for Olifants River Lodge, which also plays an integral role in boosting the local tourism eco-system,” he concludes.
