We stayed a week at the Blue Horizon guest house during December- January 2016/2017. We stayed in the Deluxe suite, overlooking the sea and the mountains. Absolutely breath taking! We had total privacy and this is a room with a view! The kitchenette was a bonus with an excellent lay-out. Karin is a brilliant hostess, willing to assist and very...

This is our second visit to Blue Horizon, 4th to picturesque Gordon's Bay. Again a comfortable and welcoming place to stay as well as a very centrally located destination for anyone wanting to explore the beautiful Cape Town area and surrounds. Highly recommend.

Myself and family took a 5 day break over the new year. Our booking was for 2 superior rooms that looked out over the warm splash pool towards Gordon's Bay itself. I cannot fault the hotel from its cleanliness, friendliness of the staff, amazing breakfast menu through to the never ending energy of our host Karen. Free decent wifi and...

We arrived late on a Friday evening. Karen welcomed us at the door and assisted us with our small children and luggage. The hospitality was really great and the personal touches were much appreciated. Karen and staff went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one.The rooms are very well equipped and the view are stunning.

If you arrive late and wanna travel further down the garden route this house is definitely worth a stay. But you can also stay there if Somerset West/Hermanus and Stellenbosch is your place in mind. Karen and her team are wonderful. My tip: try the french toast with the African style in it! We both felt in love and ordered...

We needed a place near the Cape Town Int. airport heading to the coast, Gordons Bay was the perfect distance (1/2-1 hour depending on traffic). The guest house is up high on a hill overlooking the bay. Our hostess, Karen, was super nice and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Highly recommended. Only caution for those with problems...

Very nice guest house with an excellent view. We had a very nice stay (one week). Service and rooms are very good. The service for the room was very good, as well.

Lovely guesthouse with a pleasant family suite with 2 rooms ideal for a family of 4. Breakfasts were fantastic with freshly cooked eggs and good bacon. Only downside is it is too far up a hill to walk back from the beach or restaurants, but with a car this is only a small problem.
