Despite having experienced this establishment having moved me from my specific room booked months ago (Room No 11), a day before checking in, the old and new management came to my despair and gave me my favourite booked room. With their friendly and accommodating attitude and service I am sure this place will continue to be a popular place to...

From the way Noeleen welcomed us to everyonr in the dining area. I had told Noeleen I'm uncomfortable around dogs and she made sure she kept the dog out of our site . Even though the cape weather was horrible we managed to jog at the beach because it's only a few meters away

What a lovely place to stay, immediately made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Great sized room with a cost fireplace, a fab location just a walk across the road to the beach. Restaurants are within safe walking distance but far enough away for a peaceful break. Thanks

Awsome staff and even friendly management, I'm definitely coming back. Booked for 2 nights but ended up checking in the next day, they were willing to accommodate me for the second night as they had availability, this was a nice touch.

The guesthouse is beautifully decorated. Friendly welcome by staff and the lovely dog. The rooms have beautiful views of the bay and a minute walk away from the beach. Breakfast is average but more than enough. We stayed with our two year old in the family room. We had a wonderful time and will definitely visit them again!

Gordon's Bay itself is quite a sleepy operation, but this little hotel is terrific. Our room, located at the corner closest to the street, was large, very well equipped ans overlooked the bay. Terrific place for a lazy couple of days, just at the beach and within walking distance of some adequate (although not very special) restaurants.
