It’s cosy, It’s personal, It’s private. Saxon Lodge offers you a space to be relaxed and refreshed on your travels. Situated above the harbour with everything at your fingertips, literally, with FREE WIFI throughout, you can sit back and enjoy the view of the ocean, the mountains, the quirky garden and pool over your favourite beverage. We will arrange your dinner bookings, activities and point you to the best things to experience in Gansbaai. Restaurants, shops and bars are within very easy walking distance from the lodge. Wake up to your shark cage dive in Gansbaai feeling refreshed and ready for this amazing adventure – beats waking at 3 in the morning for the big travel to be here on time. Laze away the afternoon after morning activities at the pool, in the garden or in the privacy of your suite or room until its time to dine at one of our fine restaurants. Our rooms are larger than most with individual décor and private entrances giving you freedom to come and go as you please.

The love and care put into the place make it feel like home, and of course the food (dinner and breakfasts) could not be matched by any restaurant experience - FANTASTIC. Would not hesitate to recommend Saxon Lodge to anyone!

We just had the best stay at the Saxon Lodge. The staff was unbelievably friendly. Our breakfast had so much love put into it. Our beds felt like heaven and was crispy clean. The view was spectacular. It was the perfect getaway! Wish we could stay longer! Will definitely be back for another stay!

Saxon Lodge offers a peaceful home away from home to relax and enjoy time with friends in this sleepy coastal town surrounded by the beauty of the western cape. Easy access to a variety of activities from a slow amble along the coast line spotting whales to shark cage diving for the more adventuous. I enjoyed an excellently prepared fresh fish braai at the lodge personally prepared by the owners Dave & Caron one evening and visited a local restuarant just down the road the next! Will be back for another visit soon!!

I needed a place to go and just "hide away" from all the hustle in live - Thanks Saxon Lodge - you gave it to me. See again soon during whale time. Perfectly placed, you let me feel like family, and understood when I had to leave early due to a friend's family member passing away - allowing me to only pay the nights i were at you....
