The service was excellent, it was very relaxing environment, after the excitement from the shark cage diving. Spectacular view. Clean room, everything was there what you needed. Will definitely stay there again

It was a perfect stay in the cottage of the roundhouse. The rooms are clean, big and nice. They offer everthing you need, the host ist really friendly and helpful. There was nothing we missed and we really look forward to come again.

We arrived at The Roundhouse very late but were welcomed warmly. The rooms are well sized and the bathrooms huge. Everything was clean and tidy. The view from the first or second floor is amazing. The young girl who is running the place during the day was extremely helpful and very nice. Nice jaccuzzi :-)

Our stay at the Sunfish Cottage was the perfect way to end our adventure in Southern Africa. The cottage was beautifully appointed and gave our small party enough space that we each had our own rooms and we able to spread out and relax! The Roundhouse arranged our transport for part of our party from a wine tour from Somerset... More

We booked a shark dive and one night's accommodation at Round House for January 2014. This was sold as a package and we prepaid accommodation as per request. Our journey took us from PE to Gansbaai (easily a seven hour drive) and when we arrived at 7pm, we were told that the shark dive was cancelled due to bad weather.... More

Apologies for your bad experience with our service. As mentioned in our numerous emails we and the shark diving company tried repeatedly to contact you by your cell phone number given on the booking form during the day about the cancelled trip but without any response. We tried to call and sms but could not get hold of you. We... More

Spent an enjoyable night's stay in February en route from Cape Town to Mossel Bay. Lovely welcome, excellent breakfast and the highlight was watching the sunset from the hot tub! The number of stairs to climb make it awkward for anyone with a disability, but beautiful views and a great welcome - thank you so much.

We could not recommend the Roundhouse more! We only had one night there on our garden route drive, but all of us wished we had more! The building is so beautifully unique, the view exquisite, the decoration simple and lovely, the hospitality wonderful and the breakfast delicious. Would have loved to have been there during whale season, but really enjoyed... More

As a woman traveling to South Africa by myself for the first time I was a little bit nervous. Dave (the owner of the Roundhouse) picked me up at the airport and immediately made me feel at home. He told me all about the area as we drove from Cape Town to Gansbaii, stopping several times so that I could... More

Stayed here whilst in the region for 3 nights. Clean,modern amenities in a super location in the 'shark diving capital of the world'. Some very high quality eating establishments near by and the Guesthouse itself serves up a really good breakfast with plenty of choice. Highly recommended establishment with the jacuzzi on the sun deck being the cherry on the... More

We were here for the third year in a row! Everytime we come here we feel very comfortable. The rooms really have a lot of space and the vicinity of Gansbaai invites you to make a stroll along the ocean. The Roundhouse serves a good breakfast where we advise to take the yoghurt with muesly which is yummy yummy! Next... More
