5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

We came across this great place on the off-chance and what a stroke of serendipity! This was a happy and luxurious experience from the moment we were welcomed by Jill, an effervescent and personable host, and shown to our beautiful rooms. The house is full of corners, flowers, pieces of art, old photographs, gilded mirrors and ornaments, some of which reflect her husband Brian's Scottish heritage, and surrounded by beautiful gardens and scenery. We spent a lovely evening sampling his drinks and listening to tales of South Africa, and the following day were directed to a close-up with whales. Breakfast on the patio was extensive and leisurely, surrounded by lights, decorations and cats. We must go back one day.

Stayed October 2012, travelled with friends

Firstly we admit to adoring South Africa and if you have never been your life is incomplete as it has to have a quite uneven share of true wealth through ithe warmth of its people and the simply gorgeous grandeur of the country.

In Stanford there lies a gem of a village in the Western Cape, quite accessible from Cape Town and in Galasheils Lodge surely one of the nicest establishments that you would ever want to lay your head down in.

It is decorated in a gorgoeus unique way with beautful gardens leading down to the Klein River.

Breakfasts are yummy and you will definitely return again as this is somewhere that you couls spend half a lifetime

Very highly recommended
