Spent two short breaks with my son and wife respectively on different occasions during September 2016. Breathtaking views, beautifully appointed rooms, the friendliest smiles and very attentive service. Hostess Sandra is a mine of information about local places and happenings. Highly recommended.

We had a very nice stay at the Crayfish Lodge. The breakfast was different and very special. The friendly and cheerful Sandra will tell and help you anything in Gansbaai. Do go for a walk on the footpath, starting from the garden.
