Spent our wedding night at chocolate box and I couldn’t have imagined it being any better! Breath taking view, excellent food and great service from both day and night staff despite us arriving very late at night. It is very private even during the peak season. I definitely hope to go back sometime.

Chocolate box is a slice of heaven! It should be called the magical box! I took my husband there for his birthday and wow! They went all out- balloons, cake, candles, bubbles and the most exquisite breakfasts! If you are looking for a boutique hotel that’s all about customizing your stay to suit all of your needs, this is the hotel! They made us feel so at home and always knew exactly when to pop up to take our order, I’m convinced they are mind readers! We can’t wait for our next return.

The Chocolate Box is another hidden jewel in the South African landscape. Brad and Olaf need a special mention as hosts among hosts. The location is perfect; peace and tranquillity with spectacular views over Gordon's Bay, within easy reach of the airport, the centre of Cape Town and the wine regions. While it's hard to leave, Brad has all the connections you would expect of the most seasoned concierge (restaurant bookings, wine tours, sea expeditions and slots on the best golf courses) while the rest of the staff cannot do enough to make every moment in-house a pleasure. From the moment we arrived, we knew we had found something special. If you want a home from home environment with the luxury of a 5-star hotel, the Chocolate Box is for you. Simply stunning in every respect.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way to Cape Town. Such a beautiful location. The guest house was stunning, the decor was modern and decorated beautifully. The service we received from the staff and owner was first class, they couldn’t do enough for you. They don’t do evening meals there as it is a guest house, but they do offer to book a reservation for you at a restaurant, and as they are local they know the best places to go. They recommend the Thirsty Oyster which we went to and it was fantastic food sitting with beautiful views of the harbour area. They also do a cheese board at the guest house if you prefer which was fantastic. Breakfast was amazing, with fruits, yoghurts, muesli, pastry’s then if that’s not enough a cooked breakfast. Fantastic value for money, great staff, great views of Gordon’s bay, a great find, which we will certainly be coming to again.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night on our way through to Cape Town. We Received a warm welcome from all the staff who couldn’t do enough for us. They operate a trust bar, unless a member of staff is there. We were shown to our room which was spotless and beautifully decorated. The whole guest house was exceptional. There was no food there as it was a guest house, but offered to ring a restaurant to book a reservation, or if preferred a take away. We declined there kind offer as we had already eaten at the Thirsty Oyster that Orlaf had recommended earlier. This area of Gordon’s bay is absolutely stunning, beautiful scenery and looking down on the bay from The chocolate box guest house, was a magnificent array of lights. Absolutely stunning. We did have the best cheese board ever served and prepared to us later on in the evening by one of the lovely staff. The breakfast was excellent, so much choice and cooked to our specifications. I would definitely say to anyone reading this please book with these guys, they’re are absolutely amazing people who really care about what they do. We will definitely be coming back, and Gordon’s bay is absolutely stunning well worth a visit. Thank you again The Chocolate Box guest house, for your kind hospitality, we will see you again very soon, don’t change anything, you do it perfectly.

We were a family of 7 peolple (with 5 youngsters) traveling after a nice safari to several other places in South Africa. The Chocolate Box experience was for all of us the BEST! It is a nice, modern and stylish Hotel with an breathtaking view over Gordons Bay. The best dinner and the best wines we had on the whole trip was at Chocolate Box! The owners and the whole staff were outstanding, competent, helpful and fun. Thank you for this unforgettable experience!
