I don't even know where to start! From the beautiful rooms with exquisite views, the friendliest welcome I've ever experienced to the delicious breakfast, all I can say is wow!! Cannot wait to come and stay here again, hubby and I were blown away by the hospitality at such reasonable prices. Worth every penny.

We stayed at Waterfront Lodge as a base for our Garden Route tour, and we loved it. The room (luxury king bedded suite) was very big and comfortable with a balcony facing the lagoon and a big spa bath. The whole place is tastefully decorated . Breakfast was generous and delicious. And above all - the hosts accepted us warmly... More

Beautiful guest house with great view over the lagoon. The hosts are very nice and help you with everything (dinner reservation, sightseeing tipps). The b&b doesn't have a resturant but there are a couple of great restaurants around the corner (at St. James 5-star-hotel just a few walking minutes away you even get a 10% discount when staying at Waterfront...

It's a stretch to call the Waterfront Lodge "Waterfront", though it is beautiful and a short drive to the real waterfront. It is on a lagoon, which is a distance from the back yard. The rooms are spacious, with private patios. The grounds are beautifully maintained and there's a very nice in-ground pool. Breakfast was excellent - a beautiful buffet... More

We only spent one night here in passing, but it was a very comfortable night. The luxury king room was huge, with an extremely comfortable, huge king bed and a luxury bathroom. Room includes a flat screen TV but only with local channels: DSTV is in the large, comfortable lounge. Tea and coffee, hair dryer, a mini bar and Wi... More

This was our favorite place in South Africa. The host was extremely accommodating, the place was beautifully furnished and we could not have asked for a better experience. Also, the breakfast was out of this world. I would recommend waterfront lodge to anyone and everyone.

Nice people, the owner are very kind and attentive. Rooms are comfortable, Internet is good, price is quite decent and breakfast also very nice. Very close to the lagoon as well, so you may stay in a room with an excellent view. Recommended.

We had a wonderful stay here...sadly only for one night. Marion is a lovely lady, very friendly and helpful. She was so welcoming and very helpful in suggesting places to eat. The room was beautifully furnished, very clean and had a nice seating area outside which if we had been there longer would've made full use of. The grounds are... More

My only criticism of this hotel is that I couldn't stay longer than one night! We arrived late afternoon and Marion greeted us, showed us around the property and to our rooms and then left us to unpack. Every room has a balcony with views over the saltmarsh to the rear and the ground floor rooms all had direct access... More

We were recommended to the Waterfront Lodge by friends who had stayed in 2009 and it most certainly did NOT disappoint! Marion and Gavin are tremendous hosts and went the extra mile to ensure that our stay was perfect. We had a lovely room on the first floor overlooking the lagoon, with a balcony on which to sit and enjoy... More
