The Town Lodge is very centrally located, but still in a quiet area in a side street. We were lucky to have the last room facing the courtyard, which is very tranquil whereas some rooms face the parking area. The accommodation is perfect for shorter stays, and is very well equipped for a self-catering place. The owner is very friendly...

In this day and age of inflated and bloated prices, the Gansbaai Town Lodge offers very good value for money at R500 per night for the unit and is self catering. The units are equipped with pretty much everything that you need. We were welcomed by Francois and provided with a gate remote. The bed is HUGE, comfortable, clean and...

We really loved the Lodge and would recommend it if you don't want to stay in Hermanus. The appartement was very clean and big with a place outdoor. We really liked it. You also could cook if you don't want to eat in a restaurant.

The apartment has everything you need and the bed was so comfortable I could say it was the best bed I've ever slept on! (including my own one). Although we arrived late in the evening, Francois welcomed us with a smile and a promise...

We had a great time at Gtansbaai Town Lodge. Very clean, big rooms and walking distance from town & supermarkets. The room had a fully equiped self catering kitchen - but also there is a really good fish & chips shop not far down the road. Definitely recommended place to stay!

The rooms are very large and airy. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is a fully stocked kitchen. Chantal, the woman who attends the reception, is very friendly and helpful. She helped me call all the shark cage diving companies to find the best deal. Thank you, Chantal. The price is very affordable. Considering the high quality of the rooms,...
