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.

Great destination and good starting point to your Garden Root trip. Enjoy the tranquility, home made food and friendly service. Walking distance from shops and variety of restaurants, short drive from sharks and beaches.

After my other hotel (not to be mentioned) gave away my reservation, I was fortunate enough to end up at the Saxon Lodge. The accommodations were great at a reasonable price, and even though it was late at night the innkeepers were able to call in a favor and get a nearby restaurant to stay open late just for me. I should have booked with them from the start!

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night prior to going shark diving. On arrival Caron and Dave (hosts) were so friendly and welcoming. Caron contacted our dive centre for us regarding dive times etc. Within a few minutes of arriving we felt like Saxon Lodge was a home from home. We stayed in the Albatross room which was very spacious, wonderful views over the sea and lovely balcony to chill on. There is a well stocked bar and if no one around becomes an honest bar again giving it the homely feel. Breakfast was wonderful and our only disappointment was that we only stayed 1 night. Thanks again to Caron and Dave
