I arrived @ this lodge on the 14th of June, I was supposed to stay until the 17th. I checked out the following day. They put me in a small room @ the basement, more like a dungeon. No light coming through, dormatory-style shower, 2 extremely small single twin-beds with extremly narrow duvets. It was a cold winter's night, even... More

Arniston Lodge B&B Arniston is a small laid-back village on the east coast of the Cape Agulhas peninsula, about a 3-hour drive SE from Cape Town. It’s an old fishing village that’s been declared a national heritage site, so all the old fishing cottages are now protected. The sight goes by the alternative name of Waenhuiskrans (which translates roughly as... More

First visit to Arniston and we enjoyed it very much. It has a very laid back friendly atmosphere. We had a top floor room [room 1 I think] which was very spacious, peaceful and had excellent coastal views.Erwin was a friendly laid back host and was always up for a good chin-wag.The pool area could do with a bit of...

We spent one night here and this B&B served the purpose. The person at the desk was helpful, the breakfast was quite acceptable, I just .can not see why anyone would visit this town. A much better choice would be the very close towns of Struisbaai or Cape Agulhas...wish I had known this ahead of time

Just spent 4 wonderful days in Arniston, a hidden gem on the coastline of the garden route. Very quite and relaxed atmosphere in mid-season. Crystal clear water and friendly local people. Arniston Lodge was for sure the best B&B and our host Erwin spoiled us. The rooms are lovely, very clean and comfortable, especially the ones on the top floor... More

Arniston is an amazing place. Beautiful and peaceful. We stayed at the Lodge for two nights and were struck by the hospitality. Erwin is a great host, very relaxed, funny and a fantastic storyteller. A man who understands how to live and it quickly rubs off on you. Breakfast, bar, fireplace, everything was right. If I were to name one... More

We spent one night at Arniston Lodge. We were in the two rooms downstairs next to the pool. The other guests and the owner spent the evening in the lounge/bar just above the rooms, which meant that we got no sleep until well after midnight when I finally went and pleaded for some quiet so we could get some sleep....

I went for 4 days and stayed for a week! Arniston is the most fabulous find, quite a special place, so tranquil, far from the hussle and bussle of life, just what I needed and what's more I would not hesitate to return. The Arniston Lodge is a lovely friendly place in which to stay, nothing is too much trouble.... More

Arniston is a charming little place with blue ocean and white sands. Our stay was complemented by the experience of our night in Arniston Lodge. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, but it was the lodge itself that now sticks in the memory: the thatched roof of our bedroom; the view across the fishing village to the the...

We were quite disappointed by our recent stay at the Arniston Lodge. Our room had a nice view but was quite noisy (it gave on the swimming pool and barbecue area: the first night we were there, a barbecue was organized and we hardly could sleep). The owner was not exactly friendly or helpful. The staff was kind.
