Saxon lodge is an excellent place to stay with a great view of the harbour and bay. The room we stayed in is spacious and luxurious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, making this stay feel like a home-from-home. All our needs were taken care of, from booking the whale sightseeing boat (which was excellent and a must do) to recommending restaurants and booking them for us. A delicious breakfast is tailored for you, with options of freshly baked bread, muffins, fresh fruit, yoghurt, bacon, eggs, sausage and all the trimmings - and of course, fresh coffee. Highly recommended!

As always, our stay was characterised by the fine hospitality of our hosts, our comfortable and spacious room and a hearty breakfast. Fantastic sea views and proximity to the little fishing harbour was an extra bonus.

When I needed a guesthouse for a few days in Gansbaai, I saw a long list of suggestions, and yes, Gansbaai is full of guesthouses and B&B's. I selected Saxon Lodge because of the informal feel and I was not disappointed.

The wonderful setting, just above the harbour, provides the visitor with beautiful views of the ocean and the harbour holds a unique appeal. Once entering the fort-like white washed homestead of Caron and Dave, I felt instantly at home. The reception with Caron was very welcoming after a nearly 3 hour trip from Cape Town airport during peak holiday traffic. I was upgraded to a family suite because she was kind.

I enjoyed a two bedroomed unit with ample space, luxurious soft linen and a little patio of my own. The beautiful black soulful dog came to greet me every morning with his soft eyes. I loved the stay. I slept like a baby in the comfortable bed and there was a kettle and a fridge to brew my own first cup. Breakfast was available but I relied on my own muesli and yoghurt regime.

This is the ideal place to unwind. Some units are self-catering, but it is the informality that will soothe you. The garden is small but magical. There is also a splash pool to get rid of the hot weather fatigue.

Thank you to Caron and Dave, we have now connected and hopefully we will spend many more relaxed hours together. As promised, I will keep in touch.

We stayed at the Saxon Lodge in a family room that was very spacious and nicely decorated. The lodge is small and managed by the owners who recommended to us restaurants and things to do in the area. There is small pool which we didn’t use as the water was a bit cold. The view from the pool are is really nice. Great place to stay if you are doing the shark dive the next day as it is 5 minutes driving from the port.

Lovely for a weekend visit, the owner went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. The room was nice and spacious and we had a super comfy sleep. Perfect for a weekend getaway. We absolutely love the Gansbaai hospitality
