Incredible hospitality,true generosity and a sudden feeling of affiliation with the place, the country, nature and the hosts (Sandra & Reinhard) - all of it at one of the most beautiful places of Western Cape... What else do you need for some perfect days with the friendliest hosts you can imagine? I'll come back for sure to have more time... More

My first time at a 5 star guest house - all thanks to our hosts donation to hospice. We now understand - fabulous modern home encompassing great sea views and proximity to coastal walks, all creature comforts, warm friendly hosts and a unique magnificent breakfast. Only absence - chocolate on my pillow (maybe my partner ate it!)

My wife and I stayed at Crayfish Lodge recently and we had a fantastic time. The views from the lovely home are not to be missed. No abundance of whales this time of year but I can see how when they come that this would be a perfect place for viewing. Our hosts were wonderful and catered to all of... More

Stayed for 2 nights and wish it had been longer. Awesome location with stunning views over the sea and direct access to the beach. Really peaceful spot with Walker Bay within walking distance. Clean, upmarket rooms, charming hosts, top of the range breakfast ….what more can you want?

Crayfish "Lodge" is not a lodge but a house on an unattractive housing estate in a boring suburb of Hans Bay. The description is deceptive, in my experience a lodge is in a beautiful setting away from other properties. Another example, rather than our terrace being private it contained the pool which all residents can use, we found this intrusive... More

Dear Florosie, we are very surprised and honestly quite sad about your review and the impressions you describe. It is in fact as if you would be talking about a different establishment. We are located first row sea front with panoramic ocean views from all rooms and public areas, right at a wonderful coastal hiking trail – a position described... More

We returned for just 1 night stay - wishing we could have stayed longer. The previous time we stayed here in 2010 was so glorious that this was the first place we considered when we had to find accommodation at the last minute last weekend. Although all the rooms are great, Room Nr 1 remains our first choice - nothing... More

The Crayfish Lodge is a beautiful architect designed house perfectly located for the Walker Bay whale watching during the season or a restful stop for the traveler interested in hiking the coastal trail or seeing the great white sharks and seals during the rest of the year. Your hosts Sandra and Reinhard do everything possible to make you stay enjoyable... More

My husband and I stayed at the Crayfish Lodge for three nights as the first leg of our two week honeymoon in South Africa. The Lodge wildly exceeded our expectations (and we have traveled a lot and stayed in many great places - so we had high expectations). Room & View: We had the top floor room with a panoramic... More

Most people will tell you to stay in Hermanus if you travel on the coast road from Cape Town, I would recommend you ignore that and stay here. It's certainly less touristy and there's so much more to do. We arrived and were welcomed by our host who then sat us down with a beer and listed all the local... More
