After a very hot day on a motorcycle, we ended up at the Saxon Lodge, without making a booking. Management and staff were very friendly and helpful finding us a room. We had a beautiful and spacious 'apartment' - lounge, 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms with a private balcony overlooking the Gansbaai harbor. They also gave us excellent advice on where... More

Very accommodating hosts! Invited us to come back after our shark cage dive to shower and have breakfast! Dave and Karen also gave us really excellent local advice on food and activities. This is really a great place to stay. Rooms are clean, charming and functional. Beds were great! Karen makes one serious breakfast.

We had an overnight stay at Saxon Lodge before going shark cage diving the next morning. Even before our arrival,our booking was handled excellently and efficiently. Our arrival was dealt with painlessly and we were in our room in no time. The upgrade to a 2 bedroom apartment was also very kind,as this gave the five of us much more... More

The owners & staff of Saxon Lodge went out of their way to ensure that my stay was relaxing and comfortable. Service was exemplary so I have requested a booking for next year. Can't give better review

We enjoyed being guests of Saxon Lodge for one night. Personal service from our first reservation request till our departure. Gaansbaai is not a the place to enjoy holidays in a sunbed. The most famous attraction is cage diving with the great white shark.

As a family we often travel and spend a few days in different towns. We have never experienced such a combination of generosity, beautiful surroundings, cleanliness, patience with all requests and comfort as in Saxon Lodge. Add the ridiculously low price, and one really feels it was an extraordinary piece of luck to have found Saxon.

We stayed there for two nights and Dave and Caron were good hosts. The rooms are cosy and as a family we basically had a small apartment with two rooms, a private balcony and a nice sea view. Breakfast is good and we will use Saxon lodge again when in the vicinity.

It also has a beautiful pool with view over the ocean. Caron and Dave arranged shark diving for us, a great... More
