I made the reservation by phone the day before and was advised that for the best sea view I should take a double room on the top floor rather than the family room on the lower floor which was marginally cheaper - We were thrilled on arrival not just with the size of the room (it is spacious and airy)...

I stay in guest houses all over the country very often. The stay I had at Berg en Zee in Gordons Bay was the highlight of them all so far this year. The view, the room, the friendly staff and lovely breakfasts are just fantastic. A huge thumbs up to Jacky and her staff for running this lovely homely guest... More

It's really worth doing research on TripAdvisor before booking accommodation. But even then one can be impressed beyond expectations. This is what happened to us with this jewel in Gordon's Bay. We have just spent four glorious nights at Berg en Zee and there is quite frankly nothing that we can fault with this superb guest house. The room was... More

We had an absolutely wonderful stay in Berg en Zee and it was a perfect resting spot in Gordon's Bay. We booked it based on the reviews we read and were very happy that we were able to get a room there. Jackie was very friendly, engaging and extremely helpful (especially during some stressful moments when my card declined due... More

Hi Yu Thank you very much indeed. We wish you could have stayed a while longer as you were such super guests. We're really happy that you liked the Thai Spa. We think it's one of the best in the Cape and it's only 4 kilometres away from the guesthouse. More

We had a fabulous stay at Berg en Zee. The rooms were sparkly clean and neat, with spectacular views of both the ocean and the mountains, true to their name. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the hands-on manner of the owner contributes to their success. The breakfast was scrumptious and an extra bonus were some hot, fresh... More

We stayed at Berg en Zee in 2013 and were blown away by both the service and the accommodation. Although high expectations are often not met on a second visit this was not the case with Berg en Zee. Jackie, the owner, sets an incredibly high standard and well deserved her number one ranking on Tripadvisor.

One of the nicest, cleanest places we have ever stayed. Perfect for a night or two getaway. My wife especially loved the white linen and charming furniture. The view of the bay was quite good and we enjoyed snacking on the balcony. Hope to return in the future.
