OUTSTANDING HOTEL with exceptional views! Friendly service and family owned...built by father and son team...did an superb job! I enjoyed watching whales from the top deck and a spacious room that was subdivided into two rooms - had the finest stone-masonry shower I've ever experienced - a welcome relaxation escape from the daily freezing saltwater dives off Seal-Island with Mike...

We got roundhouse late because of bad traffic, but Dave welcome us warmly let us feel home. He explained everything in detail and provided a map to Shark cage diving Gannsbaai. Every facility in the house is perfect. Big bed, big kitchen,nice pool.

We stayed in the self catering accommodation across the road from the main guest house. We were still well looked after initially, and our accommodation was spacious, with good parking, private garden and sports channels. Best thing was having double or king size beds in all three rooms!! Would stay again

There has been a great attention to detail when putting this venue together. Dave, the owner is very attentive and informative. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. And the location places it just a five minute walk from the sea. On the downside, the parking is very restricted and the sound system in the room didn't work (no big... More

Thanks for your positive review! I noted your comments on the breakfast seating situation and I bought 2 new 4 seat tables that can either be put together or separated. Most of our clients choose breakfasts at different times or go shark diving so this is unusual that we did not have space for you at a table but I... More

Initially I only planned to stay 1 night, but soon after my arrival it was obvious that I would extend my stay to a second one. After arriving Dave (owner) showed me all the great facilities which even included a jacuzzi on the roof top! He also gave me many hints on what to do in Gansbaai. My room was... More

Stayed at The Roundhouse for a couple of nights recently and cannot say enough about the property but most importantly the owners. We had an amazing time. The owner went out of his way to look after us, collecting us from the Airport, acting as taxi driver for us when we wanted to go anywhere and booking some amazing restaurants... More

We stayed there only one night and went shark cage diving the next morning. The owner was extremely friendly and accommodating as we arrived somewhat late in the night for check-in. The facilities were clean, modern, and perfect for what we needed. We liked it so much that we seriously debated renting it out the rest of the week while... More

Got to be the hotel of choice in the Gansbaai area, with out a doubt one of the best places we have stayed in and would recommend to anyone thinking of shark diving or just driving along the coast. We loved the place

We had a 2 night stay with shark cage diving in between. Everything was faultless from the initial booking to departure. We can't recommend this highly enough! Great rooms, Great people - attentive but unobtrusive, An all-round enjoyable stay.
