“Spectacular views, luxurious accommodation and wonderful hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2011

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.

This is our second years stay at HighCliffe house. This time we came back with our mothers to stay 6 days as we loved it so much the previous year. Having worked in the travel industry for the last 20 years.I can't fault with the hospitality and superior quality of the accomadation they provide. We staying in the 2 bedroom Reisling apartment with all the facilities you could need. Our own patio and BBQ along with a great kitchen, and bathrooms. Jim and Jane welcomed us, we found milk in the fridge along with a welcome drink and wine in the fridge on arrival. If you want an apartment with exceptional views and beautiful sunsets across the Bay and look no further than Highcliffe. An excellent base to explore the cape and wineries. Don't forget sunset on Bikini beach beautiful!

Thank you both for your review. We do keep on trying to do better. This has been recognised by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa who have re-confirmed our FOUR STAR Grading against the new higher criteria for self-catering establishments. Looking forward to seeing you both next year. Kindest regards Jane & Jim
