“Could have been better”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

It is close to the beach, almost a little bit to close.
Terrific view at False Bay.
The pillovs was the best.
Not perfectly clean and some utilities was worn down/broken.

A little bit more effort from the management and it would be an 5-star place.

Good value for money.

Shot Africa needs an IKEA!

Occationally found and booked at a very last minute, the place appeared so nice and so pleasant, I would certainly recommend it to friends. The best location in the village, really very close to the water, so the waves are literally on your balcony. Room is spacious, clean, smells well, an excellent bath. Hostess is very knowledgeble of the area and gives very good recommendations. Comfort, relaxation, walk along the bay, sunset...I wish I would stay there longer! hopefully next time!

With some of the country's best golf courses all around us, with fabulous views, this is an ideal golfering holiday base. Incidentally, because of the plush fittings we chose not to have a toaster in the Beachside Forest Suite because they can create unpleasant smells. I am SO please you were able to make use of your prize ... so often people are too busy for a break. Happy golfing!

I really enjoyed my stay . Setting absolutely stunning. Waves crashing in background ... really serene and breathtaking. Literally meters from the water. Accommodation very clean, modern and tasteful. Very safe.

Hostess was very welcoming and very helpful. Would definitely book again in the future.
Really enjoyed our stay.

Ah, so glad you had a lovely visit. You were fortunate to have a full moon during your stay - oh how fantastic to see the moonlight on the water stretch to the lights across the bay. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Stayed for 2 weeks in the penthouse suite, the beautiful sunsets are already worth the stay. Jeanette is a very friendly hostess, and there are no complaints about the apartment. What you see on the website is what you get, a very special and beautiful location. We left very reluctantly, after 2 weeks it fel like home, but just much better!

Stunning location just a few meters away from the waters edge with incredible views across False Bay from every room. The cottage is private, slightly away from the main house- well fitted & furnished with attention to detail & accent on comfort even the roof deck with its own braai & sun loungers.Jeanette and her staff were all incredibly friendly & helpful. We could do nothing but relax and unwind for 2 days. We were very reluctant to leave this little bit of heaven but I am sure we will be back in the near future.

I am SO glad you and your husband were able to relax and just enjoy the fresh sea breezes and the views. Just a 2-day break can make you feel so refreshed! We look forward to your return. Have a blessed holiday season.

To all the staff of 185 Beach Road, thank you for your hospitality, and going the exstra mile, we arrived late at night and was welcomed with a warm and friendly greeting.
Waking up the next morning with a breath taking view and sounds of the waves breaking, made our weekend away even better!!! The room was tastefully decorated, and the spa bath and shower was awesome!!!
Thanks again for making our weekend in Gordons bay the best, we will definitely return in 2014.
