One overnight at this coastal B&B on a drive up the coast, very comfortable bed in clean accommodation with a well presented meal for our group prepared by Caron and served by David. Wonderful hospitality at a great price point.

As most people state this is a good place to stay, also due to the super friendly owners and the family atmosphere. But the beachcomber room wasn't impressive, the heater a bit limitted, the bathroom small and functional, furniture basic. There is a view from the seating in front of the rooms and the restaurant, but not breathtaking. Overall we...

Thank you forstaying with us a nd taking the time to do this review. Saxon Lodge was built on about 14 years ago, so still relatively new and Beachcomber was refurnished 2 years ago. We intentionally keep the furnishings simple and homely and thank you for noticing. Our sea view suites are all North facing, so that the north west...

With a view of the harbour, coastal hikes and a lot of farmland to explore and get lost in, Saxon Lodge is a wonderful place to hang up your hat in Gansbaai. I would recommend Saxon Lodge to anyone looking for value for money.

The rooms are nice and comfortable. The bathroom less, since there was no space heating and it was a cold evening, ( but the shower itself warm and fine!) The general area is beautiful and cozy and does gives a good home warm feeling. I wished we could have stayed there more!

We had one amazing walk-in stay where we were warm and friendly welcomed by Dave in the middle of the night and he still managed to get the harbour restaurant staff to keep their kitchen open for us for a late meal. Dave is one of a kind host very helpful and always keen to share and advice when needed...

Great stay in the Saxon Lodge. Found great friends in Dave and Caren who are also the hosts and owners of this beautiful place. They are very helpful and friendly. Located at the end of a quite street in Gansbaai with a view of Atlantic across. We went to Gansbaai for shark cage dive which was not a great experience...
