When we arrived at Cliff Lodge we were met by Gideon and two glasses of gorgeous chilled Sauvingnon Blanc! He then showed us our room or I should rather say rooms! I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world but I have never stayed in such beautiful accommodation with a view to die for!
On the day that we checked out, a part of my car key from my rented car had fallen out and I was unable to start the car...and everytime we went near the car the hooter would go off! Gideon and his wife were fantastic, they got their entire team to help us search for this part of the car key. We sadly couldnt find and the rental company sent us a replacement car. Gideon told us to relax and enjoy the facilities until they arrived with our new car which only came at 12:00pm!
I think what makes this place so special is the attention to detail that they provide for their guests. Nico also deserves a special mention, he was fantastic as well.
This beautiful hotel is the Western Cape's biggest secret....its probably one of the best places on the planet to view whales and to simply chill out.
I will definately stay there again.
