An incredible welcome! Ocean views spread out before us, to be enjoyed from the tranquility of our luxurious room. Everything we could want was graciously catered for by the lovely staff. Cannot wait to book our next stay! Thank you to all the lovely ladies that made our stay so memorable.

Very warm welcome by Tania and her team, was even upgraded to honeymoon suite (although a single traveller:-). This suite is just great with a spacious balcony and a great view. Parking can be a problem because drive-way is very steep. I parked my car off-street, but had no problem at all. Very well situated for trips to the wine... More

Oh how much would I have liked to write a review about this guest house - but alas never got the chance due to a blotched booking! I needed just a day or two to put the final touches to a book I have been writing. I found this guest house on one of the hotel booking sites and it... More

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your feedback and great description of our Guest House. No, the disappointment was me, in myself for going the extra mile to make contact with guests prior to arrival, verify booking details which they did not specify when making bookings. You made your booking two days prior to arrival and Expedia do not... More

Recently spent 7 nights at this Guest house and rate it very highly. From the warmest of welcomes to 7 star service from an amazing team. We found Gordons Bay (and the Strand) to be less geared for travelers than anticipated (in terms of beach facilities and restaurants) and therefore spent more time at the guest house than expected -...

So is the very helpful staff and are the breakfast cook(s). The Light Harbours restaurant in the neighborhood sucks big time. Too pricy and a con waiter who sells you different wines than ordered. The nearby Tavern is much better. Good food. Great service.

This guesthouse surely has everything that opens and closes, from underfloor heating in the bathroom to heated towel rails. We visited in winter and on our way there phoned them to book and we told them we are extremely cold and tired. When we arrived at about ten that night a friendly staff member opened for us.

Upon our arrival we felt welcome and at home. Tania and her team really bent over backwards to make us feel at home. The view from the Honeymoon suite is breath-taking and so is the interior and style of the whole guesthouse. Thanks Tania to you and your team for your effective service and friendliness.
