Cliff Lodge was a delight in every way! The staff is courteous and helpful and the house is spectacular with great views and fantastic rooms. I would highly recommend this getaway in Gansbaai. David R. from Texas

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

This B&B is wonderful. Views are outstanding, breakfast is perfect, rooms are clean and well appointed. The staff is very helpful with things to do in the area but honestly, the location is so beautiful you can just spend the day relaxing by the pool or taking a hike around the rocky coast. This is the place you want to... More

I was lucky enough to stay here as a guest of a wedding nearby. I cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay... the view, the rooms, the breakfast and the lovely hosts were nothing short of perfection! I look forward to returning in the future.

We stayed at Cliff Lodge following good reviews on Tripadvisor and I'm pleased to say we were not disappointed. The location is superb overlooking Walker Bay, with nice walks along the cliffs. The room was very modern and well appointed and very comfortable. The service was excellent to the extent that they had booked a table in a nearby restaurant,... More

5 star B&B with beautiful landscape. Ideal place to watch whales at the right season. Ocean suite is a class of its own with a breathtaking view on the ocean. Very friendly service and excellent breakfast.
