We sadly only spent one night at the Cliff lodge. We were greeted by Chantelle who welcomed us warmly and provided information on the surrounding area. Unfortunately due to the weather we were not able to do the shark cage diving we had booked for the following day. We had requested ocean view rooms and had spectacular views over the cliffs. The Ocean Suite is spacious and comfortable. Gideon and Nico provided an amazing breakfast the following day and the service was second to none. We were a group of 4 and felt really pandered to. Gideon gave us tips on the route to take to get back to Cape Town. This was a far more scenic route than we had planned although we did not get time to take in all of the suggested sights (will have to come back). We did visit Betty's Bay and the Stoney Point penguin coloney which we would have missed without Gideon's guidance. Without reservation I would highly recommend Cliff lodge - and would suggest at least a 3 day stay
