Highcliffe House is set on the mountainside with spectacular views. All apartments are spacious and well equipped, maid service is first class with a laundry service on request. There is a good heated pool in the grounds. A well stocked bar and pleasant company for your sundowner.
Nothing is too much trouble for Jane & Jim; they are knowledgeable about the Cape, will source info, make bookings and assist wherever possible. The perfect hosts!
We visit at the height of Summer which can be very hot but Spring and Autumn are as good a time to visit. Spring with stunning wild flowers if you travel further afield and whales and dolphins to view almost on your doorstep. Autumn is still warm and sunny and just as interesting.
Plenty of eating places in GB and surrounding areas to suit all tastes. GB is close to historic towns, wine farms, lovely beaches, Cape Town and its attractions, the Garden Route and safari parks.
We hope to return in 2012 for our fifth visit to Highcliffe House.
