We stayed in the Roundhouse for 2 nights and were absolutely stunned by the rooms, the interior, the decoration and the features (e.g. Jacuzzi, pool billard, ...). The breakfast is great and the staff and the owners super friendly !!

This room is... More

I stayed in a very nice and spacious room. Staff was very friendly and the ocean view from the breakfast area was awesome. Restaurant booking was done for us. Great choice in Gansbaai, only 5 minutes drive from The Roundhouse. I hope to be back soon.

We enjoyed a one night stay at the self catering cottage across the street from the main guest house. There was plenty of space and it was very comfortable. We were shown around the guest house itself and were welcome to use the many facilities including games room and hot tub!! De Kelders is more or less a suburb of... More

The Roundhouse Guesthouse provided us with an excellent opportunity to break away from the hustle and bustle of city living. A comfortable, clean environment with breakfast to die for. We will definitely be back!

We very located in the self catering cottage next to the Roundhouse and enjoyed our stay. The house, especially the kitchen is very well equipped, the beds are very comfortable. We loved the fireplace which was very useful to heat the living room.
