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.

So glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. & our breakfasts! You're quite right, the stroll down to the beach can be lovely, but the walk back could prove to be a bit much for most. A car is recommended when you stay at Blue Horizon, & that way you get to explore and see so much more of...

Again, Karen and her staff did not disappoint. All our needs were met without hesitation or question, the breakfasts were first class and included a different confectionary item each morning....

We spent two nights here in a superior room. Although our room was tucked away to the side, it still gave us great views over False Bay; there was a small deck area to sit out. Parking is off-street; access by secure gate and steps. The room was very comfortable, well furnished and equipped, including a small mini-bar with soft...

The guest house is neat and spotlessly clean. Unfortunately, some rooms were being worked on and workmen on site always makes things a bit uncomfortable. Breakfast is great with a range to choose from. Can definitely recommend the guest house if you wish to explore Gordon's Bay and surrounds.

We stayed for one night at Blue Horizon and Karen was the perfect host. The guesthouse was very well equipped, beds were very comfortable and the view from the balcony was spectacular. Karen was very accomodating and gave us lots of useful tips on local information and places to visit.
