Hostess very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to beach and amenities. Comfortable room But mattress a bit on the soft side. Bathroom spacious but shower needs a revamp-ie mosaic floor should be changed and shower door needs to be replaced as we struggled to open and close it. Would go again but choose a room with a functional shower cubicle.... More

After a long drive and arriving late the owner went out of his way to help us. He made us feel at home. We have a sea facing room with a stunning view. The house is not far from the sea, you can hear and smell the sea and that was awesome. The breakfast was very nice and the staff... More

We were lucky to be the only ones staying here so the owner (wife) kindly upgraded us to a sea-facing room, which would have been nice if we could have seen out the window which was dirty. The view was stunning out to sea and the owner (husband) was a kind host at breakfast, engaging with us nicely. For the... More

After a long day driving and arriving late after dark, Michael made me feel very at home and helped me settle in quickly. The house is set not far from the beach. In the morning, on opening the curtains, what can I say, stunning view and a great breakfast to match! I will definitely stay again if I am in... More

Beautiful view. But that is all unfortunately. Will give them a 2 star. Definitely not 4. Room is spacious snd comforable. Would have liked our towels being changed more frequently, (for the price we payed per day.)

This Guest House has one of the best views we have seen. Overlooking Cape St Francis Bay with its miles of sand and within earshot of the surf, it provided wonderful walks and trip to the lighthouse - very eerie in the mist for a time when we were there. Our host was very welcoming and provided an excellent breakfast.... More

I stayed in lyngenfjord house for two nights on a short visit to the area. Mike the owner was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and the views over the bay were spectacular. The cape st francis area was very nice and I would definitely recommend a visit.

My second stay at Lyngenfjord House and both in 2012 and 2013 I have been treated like an old friend. The location is idyllic overlooking the famous Seal Point surf spot, perfect for watching the surfers and an Indian Ocean sunrise, and my case a magnificent 'super moon rise'. The rooms are well equipped and the breakfasts excellent. A recommended... More

Spent 3 nights at Lyngenfjord House and had the most memorable weekend - views are amazing waking up to sunrise and sound of the ocean, delicious breakfast, huge room and balcony with very comfortable bed only a short walk from the beach.

Stayed for one night in February. Stunning views, lovely room, extremely comfortable bed, everywhere spotless, really good breakfast, excellent value for money. Certainly would have liked to have spent a few more days there, unfortunately we did'nt have the time. We found the hosts very helpful and informative without being overly fussy.
