A beautiful little guesthouse built in a u shape to protect from the wind. Small pool and well-stocked honesty bar. Rooms are big, with lots of cupboard space. Very comfortable bed with electric blanket. Well stocked bar fridge, tea and coffee facilities. Very big bathroom with bath and shower (and of course toilet and basin). Great breakfast with cereals, yogurt,... More

The rooms were impeccably clean and we were spoiled beyond our wildest dreams! The breakfasts which was served in the mornings were great and special care was taken of us the last day when we...

not having a reservation we found Gordon's Beach Lodge. The staff was incredibly welcoming, the location was perfect and the room was clean and very comfortable. They offer an excellent breakfast and a nice setting for a drink at the end of the day. If we head back to South Africa, this will be an absolute....this time with reservations.

Gordon's Beach Lodge was a fantastic base for our 6 nights in Cape Town. The joint managers of this family run hotel Andi and Chantele were brilliant from booking our stay to our departure - it is rare to find people who genuinely deliver great customer service without even noticing they are! And Mum tried her best too! Great location,... More

From the efficient and helpful staff, a spacious and comfortable room and a varied breakfast menu the view of False Bay topped off a stay that was unfortunately not long enough. Perhaps a little far from Cape Town especially returning in the evening but would highly recommend this property.

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
