The location in de Kelders is brilliant. Facing Hermanus bay you may enjoy a wonderful sun down. But what makes the difference is the friendliness and the personal service of the owners themselve. From reception onwards you feel at home. Wonderful rooms, nicely decorated and a breathtaking view from the main terrace made our stay a real memory. And having...

Spent only one night in this fantastic guest house while visiting Gansbaai. We had an idea to go shark diving but all the boats left too early in the morning. We chose very tasty breakfast on the terrace, enjoying wonderful view. We got first class service and felt very welcome. We had a nice suite upstairs, with a large balcony....

Spent two short breaks with my son and wife respectively on different occasions during September 2016. Breathtaking views, beautifully appointed rooms, the friendliest smiles and very attentive service. Hostess Sandra is a mine of information about local places and happenings. Highly recommended.

Adorable guesthouse with great personal service! The hosts emailed instantly once I booked with suggestions and advice- they are too happy to help with anything. When we arrived after a long drive, we were met by the friendly hosts, a glass of wine and a thoughtful introduction to the lodge. We spotted two whales from the balcony with binoculars and...

Our stay at Crayfish Lodge was just wonderful. We stayed on the top floor and the views across the bay were exquisite. The private balcony was perfect for soaking up the winter sun. We found the room comfortable and luxurious with a huge spa bath and double shower that made it even better. The breakfasts far exceeded our expectations, not...

We had a very nice stay at the Crayfish Lodge. The breakfast was different and very special. The friendly and cheerful Sandra will tell and help you anything in Gansbaai. Do go for a walk on the footpath, starting from the garden.
