“mini break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We had a wedding reception that was hosted at the Blue Bay lodge, and decided to stay the night and enjoy the local scenery.

Its a beautiful venue, we had a ocean view room, and it was to die for. The rooms are nice and spacious, and i loved the old world charm

They also have a lot of ameneties available on site, and i will definitely be visiting there again soon.

Being a Jo'burger it was like a breath of fresh air visiting the quaint town of Saldanha. The People are great. So imagine my surprise when Blue bay lodge treated us to be fair - like kings. The food was excellent, the view spectacular and the people make you feel like you've known them forever. Treated the entire family to a "spa" treatment and they made us feel right at home. One word - Lovely. You will definitely see us again!

I visited this place in March 2013 on a business trip and i really enjoyed staying there. Its really nice waking up to the sound of the waves and just enjoying the peaceful atmosphere. Perfect for couples! Staff friendly and rooms very clean.

Stayed for 2 nights while on business at local steel mill. Had some cold nights (just above freezing) and sitting by the fireside in the main lodge with a book and a drink looking at the water was fantastic experience. Staff were friendly. Rooms clean and very reasonable. Very nice for a quiet getaway.

The feedback I got from all my friends was positive. They loved the self-catering units,nice and clean and well equipped. The lodge was a very good break away for all of us and we profoundly enjoyed it!

We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bay Lodge with its generous self catering facilities and lovely sea view, but this was sadly undermined when an attempt to retrieve a pair of much loved running shoes that were left behind was greeted with a "Can't help. Not our problem"

Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay. I can promise you that the safety of our guests and their possessions is our number one priority. I am sorry if you felt like we did not care about your shoes that went missing. We looked in the cottage and asked the staff who worked there and the housekeeper and no one saw a pair of shoes but we will let you know if we find anything and will keep on looking for them.
