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.

Warmly welcomed by host/owner Gideon and his PA Mary. Beautiful luxery rooms. Especially Ocean Suite. Eveything available also free WIFI. Very kind people (Nico and team). Gideon, we felt 'at home' and we certainly recommand Cliff Lodge to people who can appreciate good things. 😉👍

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.

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.
