Whenever coming to Stellenbosch for business from Gauteng, I book at 185 Beach Road, Gordons Bay - not only for the good service, great rooms and view, but also for the good breakfasts and feeling like family. It may be a 10 minute extra trip, but boy oh boy it is worth the extra drive!

Wow! Thank you So much for your compliments! We have found that Business Travelers do return time and again. We make a point of remembering their preferences and like them to feel that they can feel relaxed, as if on holiday, at 185 on BEACH. Being central in the Western Cape is an advantage because people can use us as their base and then comfortable travel to their business meetings or holiday adventures. We look forward to welcoming you again next week!

This hidden gem in Gordon's Bay will blow you away with its beautiful views of False Bay, Bikini Beach and the old harbour - the bedrooms are impeccable with charming touches such as roses and beverages. Most suites are conveniently kitted out with a fridge and facilities for longer stays. The bed is so comfortable you will not want to leave - ever! One can go to sleep with the door opening up onto the ocean listening to the waves all night long. Jeanette, Richard and their team care deeply for their guests and put their hearts into their business. Their staff will crawl into your hearts instantly - what special human beings work at this beautiful bed and breakfast! We cant wait to visit again in the future! Its a must do for anyone visiting the Cape Town or Stellenbosch area

My GOSH! What wonderful compliments! Thank you! It was truly a pleasure to spoil you on your wedding trip. We have found that it is especially the romantics who want an idealistic experience - beautiful and luxurious - that return time and again. Take care! We look forward to your return visit!

An amazing place, views that just can't be imagined. The perfect place for a sunset drink. Overall this was a great trip the staff, breakfast and facilities all brilliant. The only slight negative was on some of the finishing in the room we stayed in but with the view outside the stay was still awesome.
