My girlfriend and i chose this guesthouse for our short one week stay in the capetown area, and were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are nice and spacious, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The view over false bay, GB& Strand at night is also very nice. The reception and service are stellar, and you really feel welcome. Breakfast is... More

This Bed & Breakfast is right in the middle of many of the most important attractions in Cape Town. Close to shopping malls, restaurants and the beach. Karen the hostess is a very nice person and she even booked our safari and whale trips. Her staff is very helpful too. I cannot wait to get back there for my next... More

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.
