“Very friendy”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

It was the first time that we staid in Gordon ' s Bay. The Guesthouse was not very modern and needed some renovation. But the management was very friendly and very british. Gordon's Bay itself had not so much to offer and wewere so unfortunate that it was very windy, and could not sit on the beach.

Chris, Jim and Joy are wonderful hosts, from the moment we arrived they really made us feel at home!!!!!
We booked 5 nights and wish we could have stayed longer.
The room was cosy and very spacious, we even had our own separate little entrance which is great if you're coming back late and do not want to disturb.
The house is very big and airy with a great little swimming pool to chill out in after a hot day, they will also switch on the jacuzzi if you let them know in advance, a great thing if you want to chill out with a beer or glass of crispy wine!!!!!!
The breakfast was delicious, freshly prepared every morning, you can gave the cold buffet with a selection of fresh cheeses, fruit and yogurts, or you can go for the full english (highly recommended) with yummy bacon!!!!!
They have a wonderful Anatolian shepard called Winston, we quickly made friends with him and were very sad to say goodby!!!!
If your looking for a warm and friendly
place look no further. Easy to access with a car, great for Stellenbosh and Franschoek, Chris, Jim and Joy will be more than happy to help you with anything you'll need during your stay!!!!
Will most definitely be back next year.

I've stayed in my guest houses and hotels (Africa, UK and Europe), this guest house is the only place I will consider staying at in Gordons Bay. Chris & Jim are incredible hosts. We stayed in sea facing room and they offered my son his own room at no extra cost! The English breakfast was fantastic. The view from the patio gave one a sense of tranquillity. The house is situated in a beautiful neighbourhood. A great place to base yourself if you want to adventure into Capetown and more importantly the WINE ROUTE!
Only regret was that we could not stay longer BUT we are looking forward a visit in the future.

Room Tip: Seaview suite.

My family and I stayed at Gordon's Bay Guesthouse on the 29th & 30th Dec 2013. Jim, Chris and Linda were incredible hosts, and went far out of their way to make us comfortable. Their home is beautiful and the neighbourhood is great for walks (not far from the beach) and you are welcome to take Winston, their adorable dog with you. Their English breakfast is excellent and you can be sure of a caring personal touch to your holiday.

Gordon's Bay sits in a quiet residential neighborhood up in the mountains. The ocean and city views from the outdoor patio are breathtaking! This was our first trip to South Africa and we were blown away by the hospitality. Jim and Chris were great.

We had a nice holiday experience in Cape Town, SA. Big thanks to Jim and Chris who received us with open arms in their beautiful B&B.
We had a lovely time exploring the area around Cape Town and enjoyed the stay in their house. Situated on a hill side, we enjoyed the view over Gordon's bay, the room was comfortable and the hospitality is great!
