“Awesome Guest House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2010

I am a regular traveller and I enjoy shaking of the stress of the Big city Life by jumping in my car and making the 4 hour trip on the N2 from Cape Town to Sedgefield, my favourite stopover is Pelican Lodge. Tranquillity and peace comes to mind when describing Pelican Lodge to my friends and family, the guest house offers spacious rooms as well self catering units, on my last visit I got a room named Donald, a spacious room with a big screen TV and best of all a balcony which I used to touch up my tan. The breakfast is really great and Ian the owner and manager always takes care to have some freshly baked muffins to enjoy with coffee. The guest house has a lovely garden and a pool to enjoy on those hot days when you don’t feel like going to the beach. If you feel like having a braai(barbeque) ask Ian and he will arrange this for you. My next holiday will be this December and I have already booked with Pelican Lodge.

I needed to spend a couple of days in Sedgefield to sort out some business. I was presently suprised by the cleanliness, friendliness, and general ambience. The food was great and I slept like a log in the comfortable beds. It is very conveniantly situated, close to the beach, and to the shops (walking distance). It has a lovely pool if you dont feel like the beach in a surrounded by gorgeous flowers and trees and a place to braai if you are up to it. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

A very nice get away to relax. Ian and his staff are very friendly and welcoming. My room was very big with a nice balcony. I really enjoyed staying their. This family owned guesthouse is like coming home. They even invited me for a braai - how nice is that. Thank you very much for a such nice hospitality. See you soon.
