Gordon’s Beach Lodge is a family run guesthouse situated in the heart of Gordon’s Bay, one of South Africa’s leading travel destinations. Wammy and Louise Ellenberger, along with their dedicated staff, strive to offer a highly personalised and professional service.
The family ensures each guest is made to feel right at home, with all the luxuries of staying as a guest.
The white sandy beach, called Bikini Beach, which is well known for its safe and protected swimming is within walking distance of the guesthouse. The beachfront is lined with restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, bookstores and curio shops. At the harbour, one can reserve boat trips or deep sea fishing charters.
The bedrooms are airy and spacious with king beds (twin on request). Each room offers free WiFi, a fully stocked mini bar with various exciting delights and a choice of good South African wines. Air-conditioning is essential in the heat of the South African summer, and we have provided only the best. The rooms have large comfortable chairs to relax in. Complimentary tea and coffee making facilities are available, along with traditional homemade “rusks”.
Our large bathrooms have walk-in showers, two-seater baths, bidets, as well as superior linen and products for your luxury. Each room has a hair dryer and safe, and we also offer a laundry service for your convenience. We have a variety of TV channels for lazy afternoons after a long day at the beach.
Bed and Breakfast – We pride ourselves in having the “best breakfast in South Africa!” Our breakfast room has the most beautiful view of the ocean and mountains. We serve a buffet consisting of fresh fruit salad with a choice of yoghurts and nuts, a variety of cereals, a selection of cheeses and hams with biscuits, as well as muffins and croissants. We offer a cooked breakfast of either tradional English, or our amazing omelette or our American breakfast consisting of French toast, bacon, fried banana, thick cream and maple syrup. It’s worth coming to stay with us just for our breakfast!
