The SeaCliffe Lodge is located about a 30 minute drive outside of Cape Town. If you do not mind driving, or like to stay where it is a little quieter, this is the place for you.
Even though we spent most of our time in Cape Town, it was still nice to be away from all the hustle and bustle. The only problem with this is that with the $10 South African wines, you really need to be careful!
The B&B itself is 2 separate buildings. One is run by the parents, and the other by the “kids.” Both couples were excellent hosts. We stayed in the parents building which was a little newer, and in my opinion, a little nicer. Our friends stayed in the other building which was nice as well, just a little older…..however, the rooms were bigger. Either building you stay in, you have the same access to the food and pool area. The son runs the dining, and the daughter does the massage. The parents do a lot of the management. Overall, things run very smoothly.
The room we stayed in was excellent. It had a super plush bed, and nice linens. The bathroom had nice amenities, including towel warmers….nice touch. They had some excellent (not sure what kind) sipping liquor that was truly a treat in every room.
There is not much to the grounds. Parking, the two buildings, and a small (but nice) pool area. Everything was very well kept.
The English style breakfast was fantastic. The hot items are made to order and there is also a buffet for breads, cereals, and other breakfast items. The owners have a great bird that will join you for breakfast if you wish. S/he is very friendly and will eat along side you. It is very much a family business and the attention to detail shows.
Just across the street are some neat, and unique, restaurants. There is also a nice beach, fishing tours, Seal Island trips, glass bottom boat tours, and shops.
Just up the street is some world class dining opportunities in Cape Town and Camps Bay.
