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.

Saxon lodge is an excellent place to stay with a great view of the harbour and bay. The room we stayed in is spacious and luxurious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, making this stay feel like a home-from-home. All our needs were taken care of, from booking the whale sightseeing boat (which was excellent and a must do) to recommending restaurants and booking them for us. A delicious breakfast is tailored for you, with options of freshly baked bread, muffins, fresh fruit, yoghurt, bacon, eggs, sausage and all the trimmings - and of course, fresh coffee. Highly recommended!

The owners very very friendly & helpful. We got an upgrade for the same price! Lovely, peaceful stay!! I will really recommend. We thought of having breakfast on Sunday somewhere else, but most places only opens at 10 or were closed. I would recommend rather include a breakfast as the view is lovely!

As always, our stay was characterised by the fine hospitality of our hosts, our comfortable and spacious room and a hearty breakfast. Fantastic sea views and proximity to the little fishing harbour was an extra bonus.

The intention was to take a peaceful and relaxing moment with my wife after a hectic week from our jobs and we really achieved that. The staff and the overall ambience of the lodge made this possible. Thanks to Dave and Carona for the beautiful place.
