Fabulous place in the most incredible location. Lovely beaches nearby (just a 15 min walk along the cliff path) and our host directed us to a little restaurant (5-10 mins walk) that stunned us by how good it was. We had pretty low expectations of that restaurant and couldn't have been more wrong. All in all this was a gorgeous... More

We decided to stay here following a friend's raving review. They couldn't have been more right: we absolutely adored everything about it. The location and views are unforgettable, with first row seats over what is quite possibly the best sunset in South Africa. Gideon is incredibly kind and helpful and his staff, particularly Nico, truly wonderful. We have rarely experienced... More

We had a fantastic two nights in the North Room. The views across the ocean and Walker Bay national park are just amazing. There's a great cliff top walk (with some interesting caves to explore) just outside the doorstep, and this is also a very convenient place to stay if you're planning to go diving with the sharks in Gansbaai...

The bathroom was excellent too. The welcome from Nico and the owners Gideon and Gill was exceptional. They were helpful and charming The kitchen area was really well stocked with... More

It is seldom that I feel inspired to write a review but our experience was so wonderful that I had to! My wife and I spent a Saturday night at Cliff Lodge and from the second we walked through the door we felt like we had come home. Gideon and Jill are the most charming friendly hosts and made us...

There are no words to describe the unforgettable experience we've had at Cliff Lodge. We've been welcomed with so much enthusiasm and kindness that we already felt like we were at home. Our room was perfect, the breakfast was more than perfect, the staff was amazing. A special thanks to Nico for his kindness & special cappuccino :) The view... More

Impossible not to be impressed by the location and views. The furnishings, facilities, comfort were all first class with a great breakfast. The coffee was particularly good! Chantelle, Nico and Gideon were great hosts and made us feel welcome throughout. Lots of great places to eat - especially Kloeks@Home and Blue Goose. Food was good at Rosemary's but we were... More

We stayed at Cliff Lodge for one night. We had the room near the pool (I think it was the West Room). The room was clean and had contemporary furniture. We liked it. The view to cliffs and ocean is incredible, you just counldn't get enough watching the ocean. The team was lovely - we got so many great recommendations... More

We were fortunate enough to be able to spend a weekend at the spectacular Cliff Lodge. The views are breathtaking as was the magnificent sunset. We stayed in the Ocean suite which is huge and has a large balcony where one can relax enjoying sundowners. Breakfasts are lovingly prepared and you have a wonderful choice of juices, fruit and hot... More
