We stayed in the Ocean Suite for 2 memorable nights. Wow! - on all accounts!! The location is out of this world, you seriously feel as if you are on top of the ocean. The standard of accommodation and attention to detail is 5*, our suite was beautifully appointed and the communal lounge and breakfast room delightful. The hospitality, service... More

We were fortunate enough to spend time at Cliff Lodge once again. The sea views are spectacular and often depending on the time of the year, you will spot whales in the ocean from the luxury of your room. Breakfast is a leisurely start to the day with freshly squeezed juices, excellent coffee, homemade pastries, (the bread rolls are my... More

We spent 3 nights at Cliff Lodge at the beginning of August and were utterly delighted with every aspect of our stay. The view from the North Room was so close to the crashing waves it was like being in a boat just as the website promised. The room was beautifully appointed and the Guests Lounge complete with fire and... More

Cliff Lodge is situated, as the name implies, right on the water front of Walker Bay and offers the most spectacular views across to Hermanus. The facilities are excellent with breakfast served overlooking the ocean on a covered balcony. We had the North room which was very spacious, delightfully decorated and had its own small balcony offering the bay view.... More

Fantastic location, great view, great service, great breakfast! I would suggest this BB, to all. It's perfect for relaxing and enjoying nature and it's beautiful landscape. The room is very well prepared and design and the service is very good (tips, suggestions, etc.)

We stayed one night in the Ocean View Suite. The level of service and quality of the accommodation was second to none. Right from the moment we arrived the service was excellent, Nico made a recommendation and reservations for dinner at a local establishment that was terrific. Views are breath taking and breakfast was great. We would return in a... More

Wow, we went to Cliff lodge based on a friends recommendation. We could not have had a better reception and the moment that we saw the view from the bedroom we were sure we had chosen the right location for our holiday. Gideon and his staff could not have been more helpful. They have plenty of local connections so make... More
