A very comfortable, clean and friendly stay-over experience was had by myself and my 4 employees! We had a 2 day installation job in Gansbaai and Our hosts very kindly accommodated our trucks to be parked safetly behind closed gates.

Owner is friendly and the rooms spacious and neat. Bed was very comfortable. we used our own pillows. The family room was very dark and outdated. We did not like the location of the tourist lodge. Near the main Rd, area too busy and noisy at night.

We had a mini break, spur of the moment so booked late. The room we got was neat and well equipped. The fridge was very tiny and did not work properly, we had to throw away some meat that went off within a day. That was unfortunate. The street was a bit noisy and another resident was very drunk and talked very loud. The beautiful cat that visited us was so welcoming and friendly. The braai was a bit far in the dark and we had to mange two small flights of stairs to get to and from it. I was a bit scared of falling or tripping in the dark. The other units had braais closed to their units.

This was an ideal place to stay for visiting and working in Gansbaai, very reasonably priced. Nice modern decoration and comfortable beds. Great location about 100m to the harbour, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Good value and would recommend the Tourist Lodge Gansbaai.
