Penguin colonies, dolphins, seals can be watched and photographed around and watch out for the baboons.

The Gordons Bay beaches, restaurants, and bars are only a few minutes' away and the seaside village also boasts two working harbours, home to a number of fine yachts and sailing crafts. For golfing enthusiasts, the Helderberg-/Cape region provides a number of world-class courses.

                      Small room, no real guest lounge as such and owner derided our planned activities which, when we did them, proved stunning. Not a good ad for Capetown.Establishment's responseWe are surprised at this review – it was almost dusk when they arrived and they left at about 9.30 a.m. following breakfast.On arrival they said they were happy with the room which does have a separate full bathroom and separate wc.They told us they were going on to Fishhoek and Simons Town prior to going on to stay in Cape Town – at no time did we deride their plans. We merely stated that they could do the whole Cape...

                      I enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and warm enough in the cool weather. All the furnishings and fittings are of a high standard and the mattress is not too soft nor too firm. There are toiletries in the bathroom, a hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities with real milk. And the towels are nice and thick. I will definitely recommend this guest house to my colleagues.

                      We were a group of cyclists cycling from Cape Town to Plettenberg Bay, raising funds for Cansa along the way. At the Gordons Bay Guest House we all had a wonderful time and our hosts were most helpful and accommodating to all our needs. We will definitely make use of the Guest House in the future, should the occasion arise.
