A pleasant, quiet guest house in a good position close to local shops and restaurants. Our room had a lovely veranda with comfortable chairs overlooking the garden and a beautiful view down to the sea. The room was a good size and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. If we return to Betty's Bay we will certainly stay here again.

Great place to stay on our trip back to Cape Town to travel back to Kenya after a paragliding holiday in Wilderness. William was an excellent host, and served up an excellent breakfast. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Lodge to others.

Service was good. Close to shops and beach. Property itself needs some attention. Room door catch to be replaced and front door latch was issue to open at night. Shower/bath combination leaking very badly onto floor.Maybe a different room next time.

I was fortunate to have met the owner as I booked in, they are still in the process of fixing up the property BUT I can already see this becoming a very popular destination.

The lodge have a lot of character, it's 5 - 7mins to the beach and just around the corner of the local pub, which turned out to be just as nice. The locals are inviting, easy to talk to and just like the owner of Fijnbos, very accommodating to visitors.

I can see this lodge grow into a very popular destination.

Greeted on arrival by slightly disinterested assistant who could have given us the heads-up on the local loadshedding schedule, which happened twice during our stay. Accepted that loadshedding is beyond the establishment’s control, but two rickety candles without matches is a poor alternative. Room itself OK, although front door had to be locked to keep it closed. Bathroom straight out of the 70’s, very fancy shower head, but over-bath with inadequate splash screen. Water control handle broken and came off during operation. Although advertised as B&B, breakfast is additional (however, we were expecting this). In summary, we were expecting more at that rate, and will not be back.

A convenient spot near shops and restaurants, reasonably comfortable lodging, but a bit worn and in need of freshening-up...staff was welcoming, although the check-in-out process was a challenge. We enjoyed our late afternoon wine by the pool, morning coffee on our personal patio (room 2). We did not opt for the breakfast on offer at additional cost.

My experience there was excellent. Their employees are humble and good people. I had a great time there with my family. I so wish to go back there next summer. I love the way they are taking care of their customers. Their hospitality is on the next level.
