Unfortunately we spent only one night here recently - next time we will definitely stay for longer. Gordon's Bay is a gem and it was wonderful to be back after so many years. Blue Horizon is perfectly situated with stunning views over False Bay towards Cape Point and Table Mountain. The guest house is very well appointed and the owner... More

My boyfriend and I spent a night at the Blue Horizon Guest House during our two week holiday in South Africa. The guesthouse is a brisk fifteen minute downhill walk from Gordon's Bay, where you will find several restaurant options. Our room was a good size, with a view of Gordon's Bay from the balcony. The room was very clean... More

This exceptionally well run guest house is the perfect place to explore Cape Town and its environs. The accommodation is extremely spacious and comfortable and the views from our deluxe room were stunning. We walked down the hill into Gordon's Bay and had a fabulous meal and then saw a Southern right whale and her baby basking in the water... More

Thank you, Gillian. We loved having you stay with us, and really appreciate your wonderful review. I don’t think that I’ve known anyone who has so effortlessly enjoyed so many activities, in such a short space of time, as the 2 of you did! You certainly know how to make every moment count.

Stayed here on our last night, prior to flying out of Cape Town. Well located for the airport, beach and wineries. The house stands high above Gordon's bay providing lovely views and a great sunset. Karen made us very welcome and gave us the low down on the best restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable with our own outdoor... More

We spent four nights with Karen and her team. Seldom does one come across an "exceptional host". Karen was friendly, most helpful with advice as well as an extremely keen eye for " attention to detail " in our room as well as serving an amazing breakfast! Highly recommended, will be planning a second visit.

Stayed with friends for just 1 night before going on a motorcycle tour the next day. Wish we could have stayed longer! Lovely host, very helpfully and accommodating. Had to have an early breakfast which was very good. Stunning setting and a lovely home. Can't wait to return.

I was so impressed on how immaculate the Blue Horizon Guest House is. The view is spectacular. Felt like it was home away from home. Homely breakfast and friendly smiles all the way. So accommodating in every way. I would recommend this guest house. close to amenities and Somerset Mall.
