Lovely, relaxing weekend away. Just the two of us. Can't fault this establishment on anything. All the extra touches are thought of and appreciated. The breakfast served in our room, was delicious. We even got a whale show on our way home :) Will definitely be back.

Beautiful lovely coteg, with all you may need. The owners welcomed us with great tips to exploit our trip and went over her head to help us with whatever we wished for. Retro spec, we should have booked for a longer time... a MUST STAY place!

Excellent stay, great value, very helpful, nice comfortable room. Beds a little small and hard for our taste but that is what we found all over SA. They helped us get organized for Shark Diving although weather didn't cooperate.

We stayed in the Roundhouse for 2 nights and were absolutely stunned by the rooms, the interior, the decoration and the features (e.g. Jacuzzi, pool billard, ...). The breakfast is great and the staff and the owners super friendly !!

Was in Gansbaai in July to go Great White Shark Cage diving and stayed at the Roundhouse Guesthouse B&B for two days. Fantastic property! The Guesthouse is built on a spiral with rooms radiating out from the central spiral staircase. Like a lighthouse built with elegance in mind. I was in the Carcharias room with a friend. This room is...

I stayed in a very nice and spacious room. Staff was very friendly and the ocean view from the breakfast area was awesome. Restaurant booking was done for us. Great choice in Gansbaai, only 5 minutes drive from The Roundhouse. I hope to be back soon.
