Had a fantastic weekend. Staff are awesome, loved the breakfasts. Even with the little problem of the spa bath not working, they tried to make our stay as memorable as possible. The roof top jacuzzi creates a wonderful way to watch the whales while enjoying a glass of wine.

We were very happy with location, cleanliness, comfort and breakfast. The building is very interesting, with amazing views from the top, and a jacuzzi on the deck. The breakfast was really great, with plenty of choice.

You do not need a garmin to fing a place in spite of the fact that you are an european driving on the wrong side of the road for the first time. The cottage is lovely and the owner kind. The booklet in cottage contains a lot of information about interesting activities and places in the area worth to visit.

The rooms are amazing. The owner of the lodge is a very friendly and hospitable person and let me check out late without a hassle. A great place to stay in Gaansbaai/ De kelders if you plan to go cage diving/ Whale watching.

This place is not only beautiful, but is perfectly located. The top deck with Jacuzzi is amazing for sunset sundowners while you soak in the hot tub after a day of cage diving and hiking around the cliffs. The cage dive was spectacular with about 8 sharks ranging from 6-14 feet. Had one of them hit the cage as it... More

The Roundhouse was lovely to stay at, our Pinnepedia Suite was great, had a lovely big bedroom and lounge, dining area with kitchen. The upper level /breakfast room is a bonus with beautiful views over the ocean. We watched the whales from up there. The included breakfast had a great variety available, and the staff were very helpful. Yes, we... More

Good and clean property. Very friendly and helpful receptionist. Rooms are huge. We got the 3 bedroom house and it accommodated the five of us. Also, very accessible for those who want to cage shark diving.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Roundhouse is the best place to stay in Gansbaai as the owners are well experienced travel operators and own the tourism booking office in Town. The B&B is in De Kelders, THE prime land based Whale watching area in the world and has a unique African feel with special touches such as Shellstone clad walls contrasting with rough earthy paints. Big Screen TV, wireless hotspot, Jacuzzi and all rooms being suites make this stay special. Their specialty is Shark Cage Diving and stay packages and they offer a fantastic combination package for both. ... more   less
