The guesthouse is a 10 minute walk (uphill) from the city center on a quiet residential street. Parking is in the driveway, off the street but not secured. Economy rooms (if not others) only have basic cable TV--about five channels--not satellite. Getting to the rooms can be a bit difficult; in many cases a gate must be unlocked and locked... More

We stayed here for 11 days and had a lovely time. Moniker and Jochem were extremely good hosts, very friendly and helpful. Jochem has a wealth of information concerning the area and gives great ideas on places to visit. We had tried unsuccessfully to get into the Thirsty Oyster restaurant but he got us a booking. The breakfasts were very... More

Gordon's Bay guest house is a nice place with friendly helpful owners. I believe they have only recently taken over and there is something of a feeling of the place being in a transistional phase. Though very acceptable now, I think as they seem to have the right approach, the guest house is likely to develop well further. I took... More

When we arrived, we were told that their card machine is not functional and they just took over from previous owners. We were put in a room away from the house, which was okay. The room had an old TV standing on top of a bar fridge. The only channels available was TV1,2,3 and Etv. There were no info about... More

We had a good time and the Africa Room is so good, nice, sweet, and spectacular, in our view it had to be the best on our trip, I wish we could of spend more nights here, yet we had to continue on our family holidays, totally relaxed and such friendly service and very nice food we loved it
