Having booked our trip to S Africa with a heavy reliance on Trip Advisor for places to stay I feel compelled to provide reviews for the places we stayed. Myself and my Girlfriend (British and Australian) stayed at Cliff Lodge for 2 nights and can honestly say we could not find a single thing we were not totally happy with,...

We were welcomed by Gideon who offered us a drink on the balcony where we could see many many whales. Gideon was very helpful in arranging our diners and trips. The small restyaurant some blocks away was a good tip. Gideon was a great help in arranging our marine safari, walks on the cliffs and beach as well as drives...

Spent the last two nights of our 20 day trip around the Western Cape at Cliff Lodge. What a way to round off everything. A great trip. Our hosts looked after us superbly, wonderfully supported by such attentive and happy staff. The location could hardly be bettered. Plan to return soon if only to have a Nico 'Chelsea' cappuccino. .

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set on the cliffs, right above the sea with breathtaking views across Walker Bay, Cliff Lodge is 35km from Hermanus and 5km from Gansbaai, in the tranquil village of De Kelders. Luxurious, individually decorated bedrooms have sea views and open onto outside patios. Rooms range from standard side sea view rooms to a spacious sea front room, and a luxurious penthouse suite - perfect for honeymooners or an executive getaway. Our comfortable guest lounge has tea and coffee making facilities, a well-stocked honesty bar and a library of books about the area. The all-weather conservatory and sea front deck have spectacular 180-degree ocean and mountain views. This is the perfect spot to sample the local Overberg wines or enjoy our excellent coffee, while watching whales or the spectacular sun sets over Walker Bay. Our swimming pool has the perfect location, right on the cliff top overlooking the sea, and the unspoilt beaches of the Walker Bay Nature Reserve are a short walk from Cliff Lodge. At Cliff Lodge we offer a level of service that is always attentive, but never intrusive. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, and with only five rooms we are able to cater to each guest's needs. Whale watching season is spectacular from Cliff Lodge, and the world famous Gansbaai shark diving trips are just 10km away. ... more   less
