“Amazing guest house in Gordons Bay, Cape Town”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This guest house is amazing. All amenities are provided, it's boutique in size so you feel very at home. Breakfast choice is unbelievable and all staff and super friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautifully furnished and comfortable. You can come and go as you please, perfect for short or longer term stays. The location is also convenient to get the nearby Stellenbosch Wine lands. Perfect guest house!

Room Tip: All rooms are great, some have more of a view

My Wife and I recently had the privilege of staying at the Blue Horizon Guest House in Gordon's Bay for a few days, sadly it was only for a few days. We arrived and were pleasantly met by our wonderful hostess Karen, who went out of her way to ensure that we were settled quickly and comfortably before leaving us to enjoy the late afternoon sunset. We had the best of two worlds in that we had privacy as well as our needs constantly met with a smile. Blue Horizon and Karen offer that ideal relaxing atmosphere for a perfect comfortable holiday or that quiet professional environment needed when trying to focus on business at hand. Best and most comfortable beds I have ever slept on...Its the place to be and we will be back.

This was our second visit to South Africa touring the Garden Route but our first stay in Gordons Bay. We looked at our options for accommodation on the internet and were not disappointed with our choice. We arrived to the warmest of welcomes from Karen and immediately felt at home. Our rooms are beautiful, well equipped and offered the most stunning views from a well situated balcony. The garden area and view around the pool gave us equally amazing views of mountains, enjoying a very tranquil, relaxed break from our travels. Karen's hospitality and care to make sure we got the best from our stay was excellent as was our experience of the breakfast with choices everyday all helped along by Karen and her very friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble and a stay with them is highly recommended, we are certainly looking forward to our return as soon as possible. Thank you Karen.

We stayed with Karen this February on a tour of the Garden Route. We had done some research on the area before choosing this accommodation and we were not disappointed! The rooms are lovely and the hospitality very warm and welcoming. All the staff were very friendly and the breakfasts were excellent. Karen was most helpful with information we needed to get the best from our visit to the area and we look forward to returning as soon as possible. Love to Susie and Mylo x

Room Tip: We requested rooms with views and they were breathtaking
