Can't believe the experience we had during our honeymoon at Cliff Lodge. One of the few places to offer a complimentary upgrade because of honeymoon. The room was superb as was the service. Left my coat behind and it was posted back to me and arrived beautifully packaged even with some sweets!! Wish everywhere could be like this.

We stayed in the North Room, which was very spacious, well-appointed and had wonderful views from the room and balcony. While we were there, many whales could be seen frolicking in the waters...

This small hotel was set on a jagged cliff, with a pool between the hotel and cliff side. It is in a great neighborhood too. The room was comfortable, but again the VIEW from the North Room couldn't have been better. Nico was an attentive host, and the breakfasts were great. As a bonus, He fixes a great cappacino with...

I actually stayed there April 2013 and WOW! Gideon, his wife and all the staff were fantastic! Extremely helpful and always when out of there way to help and advise. The lodge is one of those places you could easily return to year after year. It would be quite something to own it as your own. Location is everything and... More

They put on a fantastic breakfast and the Capuchino they serve is a work of art. All suggestions for restaurants in the evenin and things to do also worked... More

From the moment I arrived, I knew that my stay at Crayfish Lodge was going to be marvelous. The welcome I received from Reinhard and Sandra was extraordinary! I travel a lot, and have rarely received such attention, even in extremely high- end hotels & resorts. The Lodge itself is delightful, in a jaw-droppingly beautiful setting, which the layout of...
