The lodge is absolutely amazing, and brand new. The rooms are clean and fully equipied (sat TV, wifi with good bandwidth, very comfortable bed, exterior bathtub on the balcony). you have access to a living room with veranda with seaview on the cliff. The service is one of the best I ever expériences, with a full time butler at your... More

Our trip to the Cape was a once in a lifetime experience so I wanted to make it really special. We had recommendations from various friends and one kind person sent me his itinerary for the last few years. I noticed that Cliff Lodge featured several times and thought I would book it for the second part of our journey.... More

A gorgeous place in a fantastic location with attentive staff and wonderful breakfasts. We arrived jet lagged and hungry and left relaxed and refreshed ready to enjoy the rest of our trip. Great local walk along the beach early morning.

We spent two nights in the south room at the Cliff Lodge. It was simply amazing and a Highlight of our 2015 South Africa trip. The guesthouse is located right above the cliffs, overlooking the endless sea, Walker Bay and the stunning Hermanus coastline. Absolutely breathtaking! The overall appearance and quality of the guesthouse, the rooms and the public areas... More

Our three night stay at Cliff Lodge was the perfect venue for the final part of our SA trip. The warm welcome from Gideon made us feel quickly at home. Nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was excellent and the family feel of Cliff Lodge made for a relaxing stay. The staff team helped us with some very good... More

We spent only 1 night there - but as soon as we arrived at home we booked again to stay a little longer. Even in the non-whale-saison it was amazing! The only critical thing is - it's not so easy to get availability ;-) All the best to Gideon, Marie and Nico

We have stayed here many times and are never disappointed . The view is spectacular and Gideon and his eager team cannot do enough for you. The breakfasts on the verandah are very special. A lovely place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

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.

From the moment Gideon ran out to meet us upon arrival, as if we were the first guests he ever welcomed to Cliff Lodge, I knew this was a special place. 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
