Brightwater Lodge
Ranked #23 of 60 Hout Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Very nice place to stay during our trip to Houtbay. The owners Erica and Gerard make you feel like you're staying in their private home, with a very cozy atmosphere and a very nice breakfast. The place is close to the harbour, only a few minutes walk.
If you need a dark room to sleep in, be sure they don't give you room no. 1, as it has a big window just beneath the ceiling without curtains! Everything else was perfect!

Our family booked 4 rooms at the lodge for a one night stay. The rooms were lovely and the reception was very friendly and warm. The owners were able to provide information about sightseeing in and around Hout Bay. We really enjoyed staying there and will do so again.

The location, amenities and hospitality are outstanding!! We spent a memorable and most pleasant stay in the Self Catering Apartment. Everything was perfect. Gerard & Erika made us feel like V.I.P's!!

We stayed for two nights at Brightwater. It's a great guesthouse - the owners are friendly and everso helpful, the rooms are clean, while the central location is perfect. There are obviously very picturesque alternatives in the Hout Bay area, but if you're looking for a cost effective option you can't go wrong with this place.
