“Still an awesome place”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Every year again I come back to this wonderful place and enjoy Jackie's heartily hospitality. She and her team are perfect hosts and the Guesthouse is a jewel in the lovable village of Gordon's Bay.

There is a lot of space in the room and the furniture is in the best of taste and made to settle in. As I came back in April was there a brandnew flatscreen tv as a pleasand surprise.

I love the delicious breakfast and the wide choice of eggs, (especially Letitias omelette) cereals, fresh fruitsalad and home baked muffins, flap jacks and and and ...

I'll definitely come back as soons as possible.

We stayed here for one night in mid April. This a lovely B & B in Gordon's Bay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Each of the rooms have great water views over Gordon's Bay and it was nice sitting out on the balcony staring at the water.
It has a great 'honesty bar' which is a fridge packed with beers, wine, soft drink and even microwaveable meals. You help youself to whatever you want and when you check out you pay for what you have used. The prices of the items were very cheap compared to some hotels which seem to charge a premium for mini bar items.
There was a good selection of items for the continental buffet breakfast. In addition, you could also order a la carte hot meals which were also included in the room price.
As became the norm for us in our travels throughout South Africa, the free wi-fi was a bit hit and miss. Using two i-phones and an adroid tablet, we could only pick up wi fi in the room where breakfast was served.
The only 'con' was that it was little noisy in the room from the cars driving up and down the hill.

We stayed here for three nights and we had a wonderful time. Jacky made us feel very welcome, the rooms were clean an beautiful. My sister married right at the beach in front of berg en zee, which was very intimate, jackie helped us organising this small wedding, and it was perfect.
I would definetely come back as it was a perfect stay, in a perfect hotel with the perfect host!

This was my third stay at Berg en Zee. The rooms are impeccably clean and really well appointed. I particularly enjoy the quality of the bedding. The next great treat is the breakfast. We love eating, and the breakfast is TASTY and ample. We especially enjoyed the fresh fruit.
There is also a good spread with more than enough variety. We left very early for the Argus and our packet breakfast was in our room the previous evening. Very thoughtful!! The staff is friendly and very efficient. I would have appreciated it if someone recommended this place to me.
The fact that I return to Berg en Zee every time is the biggest compliment that I can pay it.

BergenZee, Owner at Berg en Zee Guest House, responded to this review, March 6, 2012
Thank you for your lovely review and we're so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you also for your comments about breakfast. We agree that breakfast can become a little repetitive over an 8-day stay so we've added a few items to our normal cooked-to-order menu of bacon, sausage, boerewors, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, baked beans and all the various options for eggs and omelettes. We now offer savoury mince and french toast as well as some special frittata creations. The cold buffet of cereals, yoghurts, assorted muffins, fresh and stewed fruit, cheese, cold meats, juices, muffins and various breads has also been updated with a fourth cereal and some extra varieties of cold meat. We have changed our supplier of pastries so that we can ring the changes with our breads and croissants.
