Internet was not the best, but then again, I only really wanted it to 'share' the experience with friends and family so they could see how much I 'liked' it. Would love to go back to see the spring time flora and do some walks.
The ambience was relaxed, warm and friendly. Our hosts were wonderfully informative and helpful especially with bookings of local restaurants, activities like shark cage diving and the bat cave tour, the local stuff that you may not come across otherwise.Breakfast was top class and set in a warm relaxed room where you could see the sea. Carol, Dave and Vanessa and crew made our stay in Gnasbaii very memorable.

The (really bad) Karaoke from the nearby pub - joke, only one night so completely fine.
Friendly surroundings with privacy ensured. Loved the dogs and cat - Teddy almost came home with me.

There is nothing not to like.
Very accommodating hosts! Invited us to come back after our shark cage dive to shower and have breakfast! Dave and Karen also gave us really excellent local advice on food and activities. This is really a great place to stay. Rooms are clean, charming and functional. Beds were great! Karen makes one serious breakfast.

Wish the wi-fi signal would reach the rooms
Caron & Dave, WOW what an amazing, warm and welcoming team. Felt more like we were old friends. Great breakfast, clean room. Great PETS! :-)

Nothing really comes to mind.
The friendliness of the staff and their willingness to do their best to make my stay as comfortable as possible. I've already requested a booking for the same time next year, so I can't give a better recommendation than that.

We spent 24-25th of Dec. at Saxon Lodge. The owners, Karen and Dave were really nice, we had a good chat at the bar, they booked a Christmas lunch for us, gave maps and recommendations for hiking, bird watch, anything we asked for. Great experience, great hospitality!

The staff was extremely helpful. They made dinner reservations for us at a local restaurant, gave us directions/travel spots en route to Cape Town and helped us with everything. Rooms were really comfortable. I highly suggest the Albatros Room with its amazing deck overlooking the sea.

Loved the talks with the owner in the bar.

We loved our stay here and regret only staying for one night. The owners are fab, exceptionally friendly and made us feel very welcome as well as helping us sort out a shark diving trip and booking a lovely restaurant for us too, they really do go out of their way. Would totally stay here again if we are lucky enough to visit that part of the world again. Thanks so much!

The cleanliness and comfort of the room. The owners directing guests to places of interest and good local restaurants - as per individual needs and tastes. Breakfast served was great.

Wifi was sluggish but, hey, I wasn't there for that.
Fantastic breakfast and Dave and Karen, the hosts, we're so friendly and engaging. Excellent recommendations for food and activities in the local area

Friendliness and helpful. Everyone wanted us to be happy and comfy. Huge cosy bed and lovely room with a sweet outside space to sit and listen to the sea and watch the sun setting. At Breakfast we were spoilt for choice and there was plenty! All together a very enjoyable end to our Honeymoon :)

The Saxon Lodge is located near a fish factory. The smell was so terrible that we left after 1 night. We booked for 2 nights and we had to pay for both nights. It was the worst and the most expensive hotel on our trip (7 hotels in total). This part of Gansbaai is very ugly and there were no good restaurants in the area. I honestly cannot recommend it. Though, the owners were kind.

Lack of a good heater, as it was chilly.
Excellent breakfast and the hosts/owners of this B&B are awesome-- very informative and helpful!! One typed up a 3 page description of places to see along our route! Very nice building with large dining area, full "pub" plus separate living room area, all of which our group made use of to sit and socialize in. Really a nice place, with ocean-harbor view from some areas.

The host are amazing people. Very kind and careing. Information and suggestions on places to visit were also very helpfull.

The toilet in our room was raised up on a step. At night in the dark I did not see it and fell over it backwards. Fortunately I just had big bruises to show for it. My fault for not putting the light on, but maybe there should be a small automatic light at foot level near that toilet so that the step is lit up when approached. The shower is also raised up on a precarious step.
The bar area - very cosy and attractive. The owners - extremely friendly, welcoming and flexible. They kindly let us return to the rooms to shower after checkout time.
