About Saxon Lodge

It’s cosy, It’s personal, It’s private. It’s owner managed.
Saxon Lodge offers you a space to be relaxed and refreshed on your travels. Situated above the harbour in the middle of Gansbaai town with everything at your fingertips, literally. FREE WIFI throughout. You can sit back and enjoy the view of the ocean, the mountains, the quirky garden and pool sipping on your favourite beverage.
We will arrange your dinner bookings, activities and point you to the best things to experience in Gansbaai. Restaurants, shops and bars are within very easy walking distance from the lodge.
Wake up in Gansbaai feeling refreshed and ready for your amazing shark cage dive adventure or get an early start on the Whale watching by land, air or boat.
Or maybe it’s a horse ride on the beach that attracts you – a fat bike ride in the dunes?
Perhaps a 4X4 adventure in one of our beautiful nature reserves close by?
Then laze away the afternoon after morning activities at the pool, in the garden or in the privacy of your suite or room until it’s time to dine at one of our fine restaurants.
Our rooms are larger than most with individual décor and private entrances giving you freedom to come and go as you please.
We care and we show it!

                  This is a lovely lodge. The rooms are clean, the views are stunning and the breakfast is delish! Will def come back next time I’m in the area.

                  Party of six. Accommodation comfortable and spacious. Lovely hosts who prepared an exceptional meal with pre drinks ( and after) in the best pub bar in the Western Cape! Position perfect and we were glad we didn’t go out to a restaurant. We will stay there again.

                  Lovely lodge with a fantastic breakfast spread provided for guests. The room was a nice size with all the amenities you would expect in an upmarket guesthouse. Convenient location close to shops and the beach yet you have the feeling of being away from it all.

                  We spent a very comfortable night at Saxon Lodge where we were made to feel very welcome. Our room had a fantastic view over the Gansbaai Harbour and the breakfast was superb.

                  Exceptional! - My girlfriend and I went to Gansbaai to go Shark Cage Diving and stayed at the Saxon Lodge. The second we walked in we were given an amazing welcome and shown to our room. After unpacking we made our way to the bar and this is where we met Caron and Dave. Absolutely amazing hosts! I have Dave to thank for the hangover leading to my "sea-sickness" the following day on the water!
