First night in Gordon's Bay after driving down from Johannesburg (inc a stay in Colesburg) and all we wanted was a comfortable nights sleep :).

Hosts were very friendly and the room was adequate for the price. Great view of the mountain from the upstairs balcony. Unfortunately the wind was blowing extremely hard on the night that we stayed over otherwise it would have been an amazing evening.

Maybe change to a other server for the TV. DSTVcompact or something. That was all that did not work. We really enjoy the option from peter to go to a other beach. Because we did not know the place. Breakfast was really the absolute best.
