Party of six. Accommodation comfortable and spacious. Lovely hosts who prepared an exceptional meal with pre drinks ( and after) in the best pub bar in the Western Cape! Position perfect and we were glad we didn’t go out to a restaurant. We will stay there again.

Lovely lodge with a fantastic breakfast spread provided for guests. The room was a nice size with all the amenities you would expect in an upmarket guesthouse. Convenient location close to shops and the beach yet you have the feeling of being away from it all.

We spent a very comfortable night at Saxon Lodge where we were made to feel very welcome. Our room had a fantastic view over the Gansbaai Harbour and the breakfast was superb.

Exceptional! - My girlfriend and I went to Gansbaai to go Shark Cage Diving and stayed at the Saxon Lodge. The second we walked in we were given an amazing welcome and shown to our room. After unpacking we made our way to the bar and this is where we met Caron and Dave. Absolutely amazing hosts! I have Dave to thank for the hangover leading to my "sea-sickness" the following day on the water!
