This was our first visit to the beautiful Cape Town area. After a detailed search we were lucky to find Berg en Zee Guest House in Gordon's Bay and booked this accommodation for 5 nights. This was the perfect location for our day trips to Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Hermanus, 3 of the places we were keen to explore. Jackie was...

We really do appreciate your very kind review and it was great to meet you. Gordon's Bay really is a great central base for all the places you visited plus we are only 40 minutes' drive from the airport and 50 minutes from Cape Town. We do hope that this will be the first of many visits to Gordon's Bay!

Very generous rooms / apartments with wonderful northerly outlook onto Gordon;s Bay and the surrounding mountains. Staff are wonderful. Breakfasts are generous and fresh cooked to order. The rooms are immaculate and very spacious. Jackie gave very helpful advice re touring opportunities in the surrounding areas. We were not disappointed with our journeys to Betty's Bay and also to Franschhoek....

I stayed here for a couple of days in early January; great rooms with all the mod-cons you'd expect in a more expensive hotel, fantastic views, and tasty breakfasts. Jackie is also a warm and welcoming host.
