Detailed Reviews
Susan B wrote a review Jan 2020

It is with a happy heart that I write this review about le Bay Lodge. On arrival we were greeted by the warm and lovely Tania (manageress), who made us feel instantly welcome and relaxed. The Lodge is homely, well run and spottlessly clean. Our room and en-suite was delightful and the matress was an absolute dream!
Tania has a very friendly staff, who, just like her, are all ready with a smile and a willingness
to help. Le Bay is less than 100 metres from the beach and has some excellent restaurants right there too, so driving is not even necessary when eating out.
A big mention needs to be made of the fantastic breakfasts that are part of the daily deal! Wow, these people truly know how to feed their guests with an extremely generous and beautifully prepared breakfast! Thank you to all of the staff involved in making breakfasts so special.
Tania, you and your team are amazing, and we thank you for your hospitality, your professionalism and your genuine warmth.
We will be back!

What a special little establishment, so close to the sea. Beautiful room, tastefully decorated with the softest towels and detailed, clean bedding...love the wood finishes and flooring...even though the staircase is quite tight and a bit of a workout, the view from the balcony makes it all worth it! Olwen and her team are the most amazing hosts who make one feel right at home from the get-go! Cynthia lights up the dining room every morning with her bright and warm smile. As a born and bred Capetonian, Le Bay gave me the privilege of feeling like a tourist in my own hometown. We literally never used our car while we stayed there...walked down to the beach, to the restaurants and enjoyed the splendour that is Gordon's Bay! We celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary and what a welcome surprise when we were greeted with a bottle of bubble and a box of really good chocolate! Well done, Le Bay for creating a new home away from home for us! We will definitely be back soon! God bless your lovely establishment.

Just fantastic. Value for money.. in a gem of a location. I highly recommend this to anyone. (and breakfast top class). As a South African and always concerned about 'safety'.. to park outside in the road overnight is never 'comforting'. But the street is lit up very well by Le Bay. So.. they can't do more than that.

Thank you for your feedback, glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We ensure our guests safety at all times but outside the property in the street we leave up to our security company that is quite efficient when there is vagrants disturbing our guests. We note your concern and will ask our security t be more visible.

Very overpriced, dirty sheets, no windows and aircon didnt work. Basically avoid at all costs and rather camp. Breakfast was a boiled egg and a stale roll. The location is good and close to the beach. But that is a small consolation as everything else is poor.

Very helpful staff, the you g man at reception carried our suitcases up the steep stairs for us, we had a comfy big bed. Nice breakfast. The wind blows hard in Gordon's Bay, which kept us awake, however everything else was good.

The check-in process was easy when we arrived at the Lodge. The breakfast and hospitality was excellent. The Lodge felt like home with such friendly staff. We liked the idea of the "Honest bar". The room and all facilities were clean and very comfortable.

A friend stayed there and I dropped him off and collected him quite a few times. The place is useless ! Definitely do not bother with this place ! No food, no bar, no staff. Absolutely useless. I would not recommend it to anybody !
