Saxon Lodge offers home-from-home accommodation in Gansbaai

Our lodge, your home for a while...

Saxon Lodge is the best 4 star accredited bed & breakfast accommodation in Gansbaai, located in town, overlooking the industrious harbour and ocean. Our special location provides easy on foot access to all restaurants, pubs, shops and banks and boasts some of the most stunning views over Walker Bay toward Hermanus and the Hottentot Hollands mountains.

The sunsets are especially awesome. We pride ourselves on being attentive to our guests and adding value through our caring nature and deep connection with our beautiful region.

The lodge was built over a few iterations and so has a charming rambling feel with cosy corners and interesting rooms and spaces.

You have a choice of 7 very large en-suite rooms and suites individually decorated with private entrances to maximise personal space.

Also available are 2 courtyard suites along the south side of the building, ideal for the more budget conscious traveller. We have purposefully kept our look & feel simple and cosy to maximise your relaxation and comfort.

We choose to be a little old school about our hospitality and make a point of being available to get to know you, if you choose, and are always ready to share what we have and know.

It’s kinda like visiting friends in Gansbaai, and we would just love your visits.

Make yourself at home....

Owners, Dave and Caron, or Agnes our Duty Manager, are always around to greet you and assist with your particular requirements. We will gladly assist with activity planning and bookings as well as forward travel routes and information.

The Garden & Deck

The deck and pool are front of lodge with views over the bay and mountains and provide a great spot for relaxing and hanging out. The sunsets (and sunrises) are incredibly beautiful over the ocean and often light up the evening sky with fire making for beautiful opportunities for stunning photographs. Whales and dolphins are often spotted enjoying their play in the bay.

The harbour provides some interesting activity and conversational topics. Our garden is an ever changing piece of art with friendly visitors taking refuge amongst the plants.

We grow some of our breakfast greens and compost organic waste to maintain a healthy cycle. Garden to plate to garden.
