9,6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service and location
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Well it is almost impossible to describe how absolutely fantastic Cliff Lodge is. The senery from the breakfeast area is out of this world (and I have travelled most of the globe!). This is also true of that from the penthouse suite that we were lucky enough to stay in. The service is impeccable and breakfeast is of the very highest standards and delicious. Nothing is a problem for the hosts and Nico who certainly deserves a special mention and who from the moment you arrive makes you feel completely at home and fully understands "how to be there but not be there" (which is rare) when something is required. There is really not much more to say.. it is simply outstanding.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: A must stay! The lodge was more than we asked for. We arrived late from Cape Town and Gideon (one of the host) stayed there waiting for us to arrive (just email them if you are going to be late) he also called the restaurant Benguela to make sure they stayed open for us (a must eat for dinner!!). The view of the cliffs and water were amazing. Room was perfect and breakfast was just beautiful. Plus, free drinks!!! Stay here!!!

6,7 Good
Pros: Breakfasts were very good and the house is nicely decorated.
Cons: We stayed in a Garden room which was quite dark (although this meant it was quite cool) but it lacked privacy. When we arrived two men were sitting at a table in the garden directly outside our room. Whilst at the pool a man came up from the beach and frightened my wife. It would be better if the garden was fenced off to prevent such intrusions.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great house in a splendid location right on the coast, with amazing views over the ocean, particularly at sunset. The room was very comfortable and the hosting by Sandra, Reinhard and their staff, excellent. We loved the delicious breakfast (omelette muffins!) and its reliance on local producers.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were unbelievably helpful and extremely accommodating and the property is beautiful. They had so much great advice about the area and really took the time making sure we had the best trip. We were unable to make the breakfasts due to early plans and the host very kindly packed us a lunch to go on our last day to prepare us for a long drive. Our car battery died while we were there (!) and they went out of their way to help and jump started the car very early in the morning for us. Overall an amazing place to stay and highly recommended.
