Cliff Lodge was one of the best experiences as we traveled through South Africa. We were greeted with wine on the deck and 15-20 whales giving us a show in the bay. They went ahead and booked reservations for us at a local (and walkable) restaurant in the neighborhood and everyone we came in contact was so wonderful. The breakfast in the morning was the highlight though. Amazing selection of grab and go from the buffet as well as hot breakfasts to choose from that were great! Wish we could have stayed longer. Would absolutely recommend Cliff Lodge to any friends or couples visiting the De Kelders/Gansbaai area. Gill and her husband are absolute gems.
Traveling a lot means getting to know lots of accommodations. But one can hardly find a place to stay similar to this one. Whatever you can expect from a B&B or a guesthouse it`s there. And even more! The property itself is gorgeous. The people running it are lovely. And the location of the place is stunning.
We arrived as guests and left as friends. After only 2 nights. I personally totally unwind there. If the country wouldn't have already plenty reasons to get back there on it´s own, this accommodation would totally do to justify a return to the country. Definitely coming back! For more nights next time.
We were there on the end of November and had still some whales to see. Sitting on the terrasse of Cliff Lodge you are just opposite of Hermanus and have a perfect overlook over the bay.
The whales are just in front of your nose, coming so close to the cliffs you alsmost have to fear they would get stranded.
And walking along the cliffline brings you even closer.
But its not only whales - walking along the coast is really fine.
We spent a lovely day at this lodge. Wales, Dolphins and Seals right in front of our breakfast table. We had a warm welcome by Gideon an Nicolas an enjoyed our hike along the coastline. we can definitely recommend this guesthouse
Gil, Gideon and their team doing an incredibly good job to satisfy all whishes and needs of their guests.
The breakfast was by far the best we had on our South-Africa journey!
Besides we were positively surprised by the individual communication, organization and recommendations of the Cliff Lodge Team. The lodge itself is located closely to the sea and nature reserve, with great views inviting you to walk on secluded hiking trails close to the beach.
Overall we stayed for 3 nights at the lodge and would definitely visit this unique place a second time on upcoming journeys to the Western Cape! Highly recommended!!
