Situated at the southern most tip of Africa this luxury guest house/hotel has superb cuisine and fantastic service. Nothing was too much trouble for the very sociable owners Sue and Phil who made us feel very welcome. Prices reflect the quality of the premises and the gourmet meals.

Reviewed January 9, 2007

The lodge is small with a rustic/nautical feel, but comfortable nonetheless. Our room at the front of the hotel had a sea view from the window and the balcony which was shared with the next door room, reducing its appeal. The marketing material for the hotel gives the impression of an isolated location although it is actually in a low density residential area which mars the sea view somewhat.

Dinner was a 4 course table d'hote with a choice of main courses. Service only commenced when all diners were seated which meant that. on our first evening, we were seated at 7:30pm but not served the soup until after 8pm. After that we got wise and aimed to be at the table by 8. It was a rather long drawn out affair, with long waits between courses - surprising considering the limited choices on offer. The quality of service was patchy, but the Malawian waiter, whose name I think was John, was excellent and did his best to keep us up to date on the ETA of the next course. The overall quality of the food was good but on two evenings out of three let down by one of the four courses. Only on the third and last evening, when the owners were present, did the entire meal live up to expectations. A highlight of the evening meal was the Springfield Sauvignon Blanc Special Cuvee 2006, chosen from a representative and not over-priced list of local wines.

Breakfast was a fairly standard offering - "continental" buffet backed up by "The Full English". Latecomers found that the buffet was not kept stocked but the poached eggs were perfectly presented and cooked - not using one of those funny little steamers which tend to produce rubbery whites even though the yolks remain soft.

A pleasant, comfortable place to stay - and probably the best you can get if you want to stay at Cape Agulhas, but barely justifying its 4 star rating.
