“Hi, thank you very much for the beautiful room and privacy your lodge offers.” - Clint from Robertson
“We were, unfortunately, a late arrival / check in but we were pleasantly welcomed and accommodated. Very friendly staff and I was SO surprised with the value for money received! Location is great, walking distance of shops, shore and galore! The unit was clean, crisp and fresh with everything you need. Great for a business/ budget stay.” - Dee H from Hermanus
“We only stayed in Gansbaai Town Lodge one night but it was a very pleasant stop. The apartment has everything you need and the bed was so comfortable I could say it was the best bed I've ever slept on! (including my own one). Although we arrived late in the evening, Francois welcomed us with a smile and a promise to book us on a boat trip the following day. Thank you Francois for everything!” - Kasia from Glasgow, United Kingdom
“Our stay at the guest house was so much fun. We had so much fun with the braai we had and it was very private. We enjoyed every second. Thank you and we will recommend Gansbaai Town Lodge to friends.” - Michelle from Paarl, South Africa
“My boyfriend and I were very happy with the cottage we were given. Very good value for money! A very clean and safe area with inside parking. We will most definitely stay at the Gansbaai Town Lodge again.” - Natalie G from Cape Town Central, South Africa
