“Cosy accomodation”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

It was a cold and rainy afteroon when I knocked on the door of L' Agulhas Country Lodge and asked for accomodation for my wife and I. I was warmly received and plans were made that resulted in us being allocated a large room with a fantastic view of the Ocean.
The rooms, toilets and bathrooms were imaculately clean, as was the bedding.
The owners, Phil and Sue, introduced themselves to us and we shared a cozy afternoon sitting in front of a crackling fire and had a pleant conversation for several hours until it was time for supper.
Supper was served in the Dining room. The food was delicious and the service was superb.
We retired to a room that was pleasantly warm, despite the wind and rain outside.
The next mornings breakfast was freshly made and served buffet style.
The personnel conducted themselves very professionally and made sincere effort to ensure that we had everything that was necessary.
Overall, we felt privileged to have had the opportunity to stay at the L'Agulhas Country Lodge.

This is indeed a nice Lodge, good location with only a road between the establishment and the sea. Lots of stairs, but an impressive building with nice rooms. No television in the rooms, only in common area, but wifi was free, reasonably fast and stable. Supper was delicious with a South African menu but, like the room rates, probably a bit too expensive.

Nice guest house with wonderful personnel and nice food. We stayed here for one night. The room was big and the bed comfy. The shower was one of the best we found in South Africa (stayed at about 10 different guest hous). At the evening we had their three course dinner menu. The food was good but perhaps the signature dish (cray fish) where a little bit overselled. The breakfast day after was really good you could order freely from the kitchen. One big plus was the nice little bar they got. The bartender was really nice and talkative and the view are hard to compare with.

We spent one night at the Country Lodge as we wanted to go down to the tip of Africa to see where the oceans meet. We enjoyed our stay but didn't feel that we got the personal attention that we had at other Guest Houses we stayed at on our visit. However the food was good and the rooms clean and pleasant.

We stayed one night in the hotel, had a good, correct meal with very fine wines of the excellent winelist. A bit weird that no attendance is present during the night, which could (did) lead to some adventure. Tip : be fit, when you stay in the country lodge since a lot of stairclimbing is required. Tip 2 : go watch the stingrays in Struisbaai

1st of February 2013 decided to take my girlfriend away for her birthday to Agulhas. She had not been there before so it was important that I find a place to impress her. I have stayed and eaten there before so felt safe with my choice. The weekend turned out to be just as I remembered, excellent location, friendly accommodating service , great ambiance, and food to die for . Thanks to Sue , Phil and all the staff for a perfect weekend , see you again soon.

Booked a room with air condition through internet. No such room available on arrival. We got a discount. Nice room, but standard and finnish a bit off. Great view!!!
We arived on Christmas day and the restaurant only served a cold platter for dinner... but it was an excellent meal. The price indicates a higher standard of rooms, but all in all it was a pleasant 1 night stay.
