How exciting to open your eyes to a 360 degree panorama of ocean! A rare find. Immaculately maintained. Thank you, Rene and Renee, you are both an invaluable asset to the world of hospitality in South Africa. Well above my expectation!

Room Tip: The Captain's Cabin.

I have stayed here regularly for the odd night or two, since I first visited South Africa in 2006 up to my last visit in 2008.

Rene is a wondeful host, extremely helpful and his local knowledge is extensive. The rooms are immaculate, clean, and have all the facilities you could need, polished off with a wonderful breakfast!

I would highly recommend this Lodge to anyone who plans to visit SA. Its in a perfect location to explore the Blue Flag beach of Ramsgate - YOU MUST VISIT THE WAFFLE HOUSE!!!

Room Tip: I ahve stayed in most fo the rooms, and they are all equally as spacious, clean and beautiful.

Just go - enjoy the ocean views and the great hospitality. Useful location to explore the local beaches, golf courses, Oribi Gorge and its adventures - or just stay at home and relax. Wonderful breakfasts and great hospitality. Indulge!

Room Tip: Try at get the front rooms if you want an ocean view

From the start Rene the owner was fantastic, the right amount of guidance and reserve to still allow you your space.
My room was the sea facing balcony and it is simply heaven. Waking up each morning to the view is a real treat and the room was more than adequate. It is about 2 min drive to the blue flag beach. Within 5 minutes you are at the beach front on foot and there is the ramsgate ramble to enjoy. The breakfast was great and I would definitely stay here again. Only suggestion is to provide tea/coffee facilities in each room rather than only available in the downstairs bar area. Highly recommend the stay!!

Stayed for just one night but could have been more We had a sea facing room with views out over the manicured lawns and swimming pool . A excellent guest lodge with attention to detail in design ,service and food. Welcoming hosts who were eager to please and who provided very useful information and advice.

Room Tip: We had a sea facing room - not sure that the garden facing ones would have quite the WOW
