On my trip to Cape Town I stayed three nights at the gordons bay guesthouse. Was a nice guesthouse, very good breakfast, comfort room, near to the bay, friendly staff and guests, 30 Minutes to the Airport (with the car). Thanks a lot!

The place is located at an amazing place. Walking distance to the ocean and fun foods at exposure. Variety of breakfast was amazing. The staff is friendly. Somehow it had that homely feeling. I liked that about it

Breakfast was particularly good, and the amenities available were good. I enjoyed the peace and quiet, which was I was looking for. A 5 minute drive from the beach was convenient, and I spent a lot of time walking down there. All in all a lovely trip away from home!
