This gem sits on the mountain overlooking False Bay and to the side of it you will find plenty of winelands and attractions. The establishments is superb - spacious, luxurious and very well placed, but what was even better were the staff and owners who went out of their way to accommodate and inform us about the area, its attractions...

We found The Chocolate Box online when looking for a place to stay in Gordon's Bay on our way through to Hermanus. I truly cannot fault a thing.

The Chocolate Box was outstanding! The room was inviting and clean. The breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Our hosts, Brad and Olaf, went out of their way to welcome us and make us feel "at home". They were extremely helpful with recommendations for restaurants and things to do in Gordon's Bay. The views from the pool deck overlooking... More

Only stayed one night which was way too short. Olaf and Brad is impeccable hosts and they engage with every guest and all your needs are catered for. Breakfast was great and we even had some complimentary champagne and wine on arrival. We would definitely stay there again. Your partners in hospitality.

Wow. There are simply no words to describe the Chocolate Box experience. But I'll try... Professional yet personal touch. Tranquil yet central enough. Modern yet classic decor. Bradley, Olaf and Bernadette will leave you feeling at home and pampered. Brad's vast knowledge of the local area as well as impeccable art knowledge, is enriching. Olaf's flair is explicit and his... More
