Lovely place with a superb breakfast while overlooking the gorgeous bay. Very friendly people and especially Nico is a unique barrista making the best cappuccino's while adding his warmth and relaxed personality. All rooms are nice but we especially liked our outdoor shower.

And when we walked out onto the patio and took in the glorious views of Walker Bay, while sipping an excellent South African Rose, that he smilingly served to... More

The crystal clear pool was inviting. Gideon and his staff go the extra mile. The breakfast was fabulous. We loved every minute of our stay. Thank you Gideon and your... More

We stayed at Cliff Lodge for three nights as part of our holiday in South Africa. From the moment we arrived to the morning we left, everything was perfect. Gideon, and his whole team are excellent. From the "ladies" who look after housekeeping, to Marie who booked our restaurants and provided lots of good advice, to Nico who makes the... More

The most stunning views and beautiful house with plunge pool on the terrace. A small, exclusive guest house with two guest rooms. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with private terrace/balcony overlooking the sea. You can almost step into the ocean from there its all so close. Our hosts, Shalene and Gerhard, are utterly delightful and full of fascinating... More

Enjoyed everything! Very nice, helpful staff. Had problems with our rented car and everybody was helpful in calling up europcar etc. Wonderful, clean rooms, nice views and above all a really tasteful breakfast with fresh products, fruits, eggs, all kind of bread etc. The owner is also present and enjoys to make your stay a wonderful experience.
