The guest house is neat and spotlessly clean. Unfortunately, some rooms were being worked on and workmen on site always makes things a bit uncomfortable. Breakfast is great with a range to choose from. Can definitely recommend the guest house if you wish to explore Gordon's Bay and surrounds.

We stayed for one night at Blue Horizon and Karen was the perfect host. The guesthouse was very well equipped, beds were very comfortable and the view from the balcony was spectacular. Karen was very accomodating and gave us lots of useful tips on local information and places to visit.

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.

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.
