The room with the view & the fantastic sundown, the delicious breakfast, the location directly at the small bay, the relaxing spa treatment, the friendly & helpful hosts, the recommendations from the hosts (Thyme at Rosemary's) ...everything was perfect!

When someone cares about what she does, and when she does it with love, then in shows. It shows in the best French toast I've ever eaten, it shows in the divine carrot cake as well as in all the home-made preserves available at breakfast. Sandra, the hostess, is such a person. Was it a flawless experience? No, but our...

Great place with a stunning view. Hostages are very friendly, have many good hints about what to do or where to eat. Breakfast is incredible delicious and most of it homemade and not to forget the wine assortment! Thank you for some wonderful days during our jouney.

Crayfish Lodge was the perfect start to our Western Cape vacation. The house is an architectural treat - with spectacular views, great space and atmosphere. Sandra is bubbling with positive energy and ideas for nearby activities. The two Panorama Suites were the right solution for our group of 2 couples. We flew in to Capetown International and took the coastal...

Our room was extremely comfortable and we had plenty of space to sit outside in the garden close to the pool.. All in all,...

First the location, It is very quiet, if you are looking for a low key, relaxing area then De Kelders is a great place to stay. The room in which we lodged faced the bay and the distant mountains.

I've travelled the world for 40 years but I've never come across a small chic hotel with so many things going for it. Incredible views along the coast, exceptional service and comfort. The rooms are spacious and super-well equipped.
