The Chocolate Box guesthouse can easily be mistaken for a 5 star boutique hotel based on location, service and the friendliness and efficiency of Olaf and his staff. They are very knowledgeable concerning excursions and restaurants in the area and beyond Gordon's Bay. Book the room overlooking the pool area and wake up to the best view in Gordon's Bay!...

This isn't some check in and you're forgotten about kind of hotel. Huge attention is paid to making sure your stay is special. There are plenty of restaurants and wine farms nearby but far enough...

We've stayed in a few hotels / guest houses in the wider Cape Town region and Chocolate Box comes out on top! In fact, this was our second visit and we can't wait to stay there again! The views, service, homely feel and exquisite decor all adds up to exceeding our expectations time and time again!

This small hotel is absolutely perfect. The views from the terrace is amazing, the atmosphere is very nice and the hosts make the stay great. Also the breakfast is very good and you can buy your own food for dinner and enjoy the sunset from the terrace! I can only recommend.

This property has panoramic elevated vistas of the sea, mountains and local urban areas. The property is run by fabulous hosts and we enjoyed the whole experience of the pool deck and hospitality. Breakfast was the best of our current trip.
