We had a lovely stay at the Boardwalk Lodge. Although the stairs on a hot day can be quite daunting, the view makes it 110% worthwhile!!!! The unit and bedroom were both very spacious, and the balcony perfect for a braai at sunset or just to relax with a good book. The location is also great, with the beach and... More

Lovely place, amazing view! Visited with my wife and 2 children. Enjoyed having a braai (gas) on the outside deck with an amazing view of the ocean! Breakfast is ok, nothing spectacular but nothing wrong either. We stayed in a self catering cabin with 2 bedroom. Really spacious and the gas fireplace was fantastic during July winter.

Other reviews have mentioned the fact that there can be a bit of a climb to some rooms, which was the case with ours, but the views from the bedrooms and balcony made it so worthwhile. We stayed as a family during a midweek winter break and The Boardwalk proved to be the ideal choice as a base from which... More

I found the Lodge to be extremely well run, attention to detail and customer comfort paramount, have been back twice and will most definitely return again! The restuarants are very close and the staff are extremely accommodating, best perk is a porter to carry your luggage!!

The view was amazing,regrettably there is quite a climb up to get there! This is not a venue for the elderly or infirm who may be physically challenged,and should be advised at time of booking. The shower was good to look at, but not user friendly.

Boardwalk Lodge is a great spot from which to explore the Garden Route. It has easy access to Plett/Knysna and George/Mosselbaai. Boardwalk lodge is also well located relative to the restaurants in town - easy walking distance. Beautiful views and great rooms.
