The hotel is nested right on Gordon's Bay, a few 100 m from the beach and the marina. Room was really comfortable with complementary everything you need in case you... More

Excellent location in Gordons's bay, Host and staff very friendly. Rooms are nice and spacious. Literally on the beach! Awesome breakfast will keep you going to lunchtime. Good security. Would have been great if all the rooms were sea facing.

To the Management and Staff of GBL keep up the amazing work. My family had an awesome time, as we needed a quick get away from home while our renovations were being done. We would surely recommend GBL very highly.

Thank you Andrea for a lovely stay at your Guest house. I needed some time to rest and I wanted to spoil myself a little to. Your Lodge is beautiful, is ideally situated and the service and Breakfast was stunning. It did feel like a home away from home, and I certainly will visit again in the future.

Lovely stay. The property was close to the beach, restaurants and shops. The hosts were welcoming and helpful and breakfast was wonderful. Although it was not a negative for me the room décor was very white.

We had a great stay, a pity it was so short. Will definitely go back again. The room was something very special and we were made to feel at home from the time we arrived there. Breakfast was a delight.
