7.9 Good
Pros: We stayed int he hotel at the end of April. The establishments are beautiful but far away from sights and activities, so it's better to stay during high season in order to enjoy and appreciate the nature. During low season, its isolated.

9.6 Excellent

7.5 Good
Pros: Lovely to be in a nature reserve surrounded by fynbos.

5.0 Okay
Pros: We rented the Luxury Double room with Balcony. We had an amazing view of the ocean on two sides. The beds were comfortable and there were blackout curtains. Breakfast was great, fresh fruit and breads, and a menu of items to order from, eggs/omelets, bacon, pancakes, French toast etc.
Cons: The air conditioner was not working the first night so the manager brought us a small fan. The repairman was supposed to come fix the unit the following morning, but when we returned the next day from doing the cliff walk in Hermanus it was still not working. So the manager moved us to an even nicer unit but once we were all settled in we discovered the a/c was not working in there either. The only option left at this point was to down grade us to a family unit. Before moving for the third time they went to verify the a/c unit was working. It was. The family unit was not nearly as nice as the room we paid for. The floors were all scratched up in the bedroom, the curtains were coming off the rod and the light from the neighbors porch shone right through. The shower was in the corner of the bedroom and when I used it the drain was clogged and the water flowed into bedroom and it took three towels to soak it up. Since we did not receive what we paid for, we were expecting some type of adjustment to the cost of the room. The manager did not offer to lower the price, but did offer us a bottle of wine which we declined because we do not drink. We are still hoping the owner will do the right thing.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are pretty and huge but the rest of the hotel needs some maintenance as I wouldn’t consider it as a five star hotel. The area around is really quiet and there is not much to do but the view is amazing. We got a recommendation for a small beautiful restaurant in walking distance called Kloeks@home which is really awesome. You have to bring your own wine or drinks since they don’t sell alcohol but the food was amazing and the atmospheric really lovely.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Sandra and Reinhard are perfect hosts and they can’t do enough for you. The house is big and is stunning in the way it has been designed and decorated. We had one of the larger rooms at the top of the house and it’s probably one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in. So spacious and beautifully thought through. Every wish catered for. They source all their food products locally and have their own bees. Breakfast was so individual and tasty.

The room was very comfortable and the hosting by Sandra, Reinhard and their staff, excellent. We loved the delicious breakfast (omelette muffins!) and its reliance on local producers.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were unbelievably helpful and extremely accommodating and the property is beautiful. They had so much great advice about the area and really took the time making sure we had the best trip. We were unable to make the breakfasts due to early plans and the host very kindly packed us a lunch to go on our last day to prepare us for a long drive. Our car battery died while we were there (!) and they went out of their way to help and jump started the car very early in the morning for us. Overall an amazing place to stay and highly recommended.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The sea facing rooms have the most incredible views over Walker Bay. A must for the whale season. Some fantastic wall art. Blessed the manager couldn’t do enough for us.
Cons: The rooms are quite odd shapes and as an example there was nowhere near the wash basin to put my toilet bag. But that’s just nit picking.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Manager (Blessed) was very friendly and welcoming. The room was very large, very well equipped, had a massive bathroom and great views from the terrace.
Cons: We had the master suite which is on the same level as the breakfast area (right outside the bedroom door) and you can hear early risers at breakfast. So if you wanted a lay in, you would need to be able to sleep through the general noise of people coming and going for breakfast. This was only a minor disturbance for us.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff are amazing! The top floor and roof terrace are extremely cool, relaxing and spacious with great views. I would definitely recommend!
Cons: A fridge in the room would be nice The basic room is a little cosy but still great value for money with a private balcony!

Pros: The location is beautiful - set in a private nature reserve and our large and super comfrotable room had magnificent views. If we had more time, we would have explored more.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Lovely calm and serene. Could stay a week
4.0 Okay
Pros: Beautiful country setting.
Cons: At arrival, I was met by a staff member who was trying to attend to another guest. I had to wait quite some time to checking in, then taken to my room and handed the key. The staff member seemed to be in a rush, there was no introduction to the facilities and no inclination or interest in assisting me with my luggage from my car in the parking area which is quite a distance away from the room. The safe was not secured to the wall and I had to search for the ceiling fan switch that is hidden in the wardrobe. The bathroom is in desperate need of TLC and surely guests should find the toilet seat closed on arrival(?). On my return from a wedding at the neighboring farm, I was met by total darkness at 10:30 pm. The following morning I found a tray outside my room with a bottle of water and turn-down chocolates, which was meant for me to enjoy the previous night. I preferred the buffet at breakfast and was disappointed to find that the bowl of fruit salad was empty, but... the freshness of the croissant, the good cup of the coffee and the friendly service made up for that though!

Pros: Cliff Lodge overlooks the cliffs and the sea so you can have breakfast whilst listening and watching the waves crash onto the rocks. We spotted seals over breakfast. There is always something interesting to look at! Jill and Gideon are delightful hosts and they and their staff can’t do enough for you. They are so welcoming and they cater to your every need. Breakfast was amazing and very delicious! The bedroom was spacious and exceedingly well equipped. We even had an outdoor shower as well as an inside one!

Pros: A must stay! The lodge was more than we asked for. We arrived late from Cape Town and Gideon (one of the host) stayed there waiting for us to arrive (just email them if you are going to be late) he also called the restaurant Benguela to make sure they stayed open for us (a must eat for dinner!!). The view of the cliffs and water were amazing. Room was perfect and breakfast was just beautiful. Plus, free drinks!!! Stay here!!!
Cons: I didn't like that I couldn't stay longer!!!

10.0 Excellent

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The sea facing rooms have the most incredible views over Walker Bay. A must for the whale season. Some fantastic wall art. Blessed the manager couldn’t do enough for us.
Cons: The rooms are quite odd shapes and as an example there was nowhere near the wash basin to put my toilet bag. But that’s just nit picking.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Manager (Blessed) was very friendly and welcoming. The room was very large, very well equipped, had a massive bathroom and great views from the terrace.
Cons: We had the master suite which is on the same level as the breakfast area (right outside the bedroom door) and you can hear early risers at breakfast. So if you wanted a lay in, you would need to be able to sleep through the general noise of people coming and going for breakfast. This was only a minor disturbance for us.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff are amazing! The top floor and roof terrace are extremely cool, relaxing and spacious with great views. I would definitely recommend!
Cons: A fridge in the room would be nice The basic room is a little cosy but still great value for money with a private balcony!
