Wonderful escape

“We recently stayed at Cliff Lodge and all I can say is that we can't wait to go back again. I would highly recommend staying here. Owners and staff were wonderful. Very helpful with local knowledge and places to visit in the area.” - Marie from Booking.com

Great guesthouse and stunning service

“The guesthouse itself was fantastic with stunning views and excellent rooms with modern features and a great pool, but what set this guesthouse out from the rest was the quality of service from Gideon and his wife Gill, who went beyond what was expected with their help and advice. A real shame we were only there for 1 night.” - Alex from Booking.com
