Stayed 1 night travelling through. The property is very welcoming as are the people whom run it. Dave is very keen to book restaurants for you with exactly the type of food you want to eat. Nothing seems too much trouble here. Great bar at the property, fantastic terrace with small pool to sip your drink and watch the sun...

It was a for us (6 pers.) a great stay in this beautyful accomodation. We would come back every time. The staff was helpful and polite. They organized for us the trip to the cage diving, which was unforgetable.

We had a large room with beds downstairs for the kids and a double room with bathroom upstairs. Very roomy and well appointed. Bar fridge, coffee etc provided as would be expected in this up-market guesthouse. Very nice room - with excellent views over the harbour and ocean. Dave & Caron are excellent hosts with extensive local knowledge. Need anything?...

We have just returned from a two night stay here- what a fantastic experience. Dave and Caron were fabulous hosts and made our family stay in Gansbaai so memorable. Incidentally, Saxon Lodge has a view of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen! A huge thanks to you both.

I could wax lyrical over the hosts Dave & Karen as they are fabulous people, as is Shirley who helps them. However getting down to the nitty gritty, what you need to know: Clean comfy bed with electric blanket & sea view in room coffee tea and safe - no fridge, not that we needed one. Heater and fan. Strong...

The owners were very warm, welcoming and extremely friendly. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. They have a home from home feel that makes you want to extend your stay. The view from the dining room is breathtaking. While eating breakfast we watched the boats coming into the harbour which the children loved. The swimming pool was also enjoyed...

We had a great time staying here. The Lodge is ideally placed for those wanting to see sharks in the neighbouring bay - it only takes just under 5 minutes to drive to the meeting places. There are also good eateries near by, and the local area is nice to drive around. But as for the lodge itself the most...
