“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

This was our 2nd visit to GBL! We were welcomed as friends and made to feel really special from the moment we arrived! It was like we had never been away! Louise, Wammy, Andrea, ILana and all the team make every moment comfortable, relaxing and really enjoyable.
All the rooms are really well maintained and full of little "extras" for making it exceed anyone's expectations. The Wi-fi is excellent. Better than anywhere we stayed during this visit.
Lovely garden which is in the sun all day. The pool is perfect to sit by and dip your feet into or plunge in! We seemed to spend quite a bit of time just relaxing here.
The breakfast is just fabulous!
We will definitely Return again! Thank you all so much and Great to see you all in 2013...

This was a gem of a find as a 3 night stop over allowing us to visit places in the area. The owners and staff are all very friendly, nothing was too much trouble, they even lent us a Tom Tom! Breakfasts were good, views fabulous and rooms extremely well appointed. P&H Winchester.

A lovely personally run, good value guesthouse with a inner courtyard with pool, nice rooms walking distance to quaint little beach and superb location overlooking the False Bay coast, Winelands mountains, and beyond.

lovely lovely rooms, not over the top, but very comfortable, modern and clean.
great to be able to walk to the restaurants and the whole area feel really safe and has lots of character.

Room Tip: family room is the best in the house

Spent a week here in April and can't say enough about Louise and the staff she has working there. From the time we arrived till we departed we were treated like family. This is a most stay in a very safe area and just a sort drive to wine country and Cape Town.

We had a poke around Gordon’s Bay to see which the best place to stay was and we thought this place had the best value. We went into the lodge and they kindly offered us a room that we accepted. The Lodge had nice people who were nice to talk to and even offered us lift to some friends. The rooms were a bit dated but you could enjoy a very nice bathroom and a good sleep. The location of the hotel was a short walk along the beach to the town centre. The breakfasts were very nice and I think that this place was good but nothing too special.

We initially planned to stop for one night but ended up stopping for almost a week rather than move closer to Cape Town.

Louise and her team could not have been more helpful and the whole hotel/guest house could not be faulted. The luxury of being pampered in such a large room complete with sofas and then being able to soak in such a large bath was bliss (complete with candles provided and wine from the minibar).

The local area has several really good restaurants within walking distance and the beach is just steps away and this was the first hotel in SA where the free wifi worked at first touch!

contact the team at http://www.gordonsbeachlodge.co.za/....I'm sure they'll make your stay as blissfull as ours. We plan to go back and visit as soon as we can.
