Spent 31/3/2015 and 1/4/2105 at Gordons Bay Lodge - what a great experience. The lady on duty welcomed us with open arms and showed us straight to our room and explained how everything works. Nothing was too much trouble - asked for some ironing to be done which was not a problem and was done for free as well. Breakfast... More

This was a fantastic long weekend with our family. We stayed in the family suite which was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was superb and was more than we could imagine. the location of Gordon's Beach was ideal, we could walk to the harbour and also we it isn't far from the main beach.

The staff was extremely friendly, room was clean and they personalised the greeting in the information booklet. The breakfast was very tasteful with an awesome view of the ocean. We will definitely recommend the lodge and will be returning in the near future.

Nicely located in Gordons Bay. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms large with lots of towels. Breakfast area has good views over False Bay. No off road parking. No electric shaver plug in bathroom and lighting in bathroom is not good in the basin area if you need to shave conventionally! Reception and staff are friendly and helpful. I would come... More

We had a very short one night stay, arriving late and leaving pretty early. Having said that, the stay was excellent even for such a brief period of time. Our late check in was met with a smile and total professionalism; the room was lovely, clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was great and Gordon's Bay is certainly worth... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Gordon's Beach Lodge and without a doubt it was the highlight of our recent visit to South Africa. We had previously stayed here in 2006 and looked forward to our return. We were not disappointed. The comfort, friendliness, cleanliness and the tremendous breakfasts all added to what was a very special... More

We booked this because it was a quick drive from the airport and would give us a good resting place for the night before setting off for a 5 day drive. What a mistake! This place deserves a hell of a lot more. The area is beautiful for a start - lovely to walk along the bay in either direction,... More

I was back in Cape Town for the umpteenth time this year. I decided to stay in the False Bay Area as a change from the Blouberg Area and the V&A Waterfront. I read the reviews on Gordon's Beach Lodge and decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. The establishment is neat and well run. The hosts... More
