We stayed at the Cliff Lodge for the last 2 nights of a 3 week tour of the Garden Route and thought that we had stayed at some pretty special places on route.
But this was in another league - we had booked the Ocean Penthouse Suite and both the accomodation and views were exceptional. We had an enormous bedroom and sitting area both with bi fold doors that opened out onto an enormous private balcony that overlooked the entire sweep of Walker Bay. The accomodation was spacious and beautifully furnished and equiped. Every detail had been considered down to an honesty bar and a telescope to spot the dozens of whales that floated just below the balcony. The common areas had another equally impressive balcony and this was where a super breakfast was served. Gill, Gideon and Nico proved to be perfect hosts and a mine of local information.
They now serve meals on the balcony 3 nights a week and we took advantage of this - super food, beautifully presented and a sunset to die for!
An underrated area with loads to do, Cape Aghulas, Arniston, Struis Bay, Elim to name a few.
Our only regret was not staying for much longer!
