An amazing place built on the dunes 8km south of Lamberts Bay and withing walkin distrance (1.6km) from the famous "Muisbosskerm Restaurant". The road is now brand new tar and a pleasure to ride on (we were on motorcyles that dont like offroad all that much). Very comfortable and spacious accomodation with probably the best beds on our 12 day...

We stayed in the honeymoon suite on the dunes. Rustic, quaint, windy, wonderful. Right on the beach, sun shine, waves crashing, blowing a southerly gale, we loved it. Breakfast was served in the main house across the road which was fine. The owner and staff were very helpful. Would definitely stay again when in this part of the country.

We spent 4 very restful nights at this guesthouse. The owners and staff were all so kind to us. There was fruit, juice, coffee, and yogurt every morning followed by cooked breakfast. Our room was spacious and had an ocean view from our second floor room. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable I've slept on in months.

Set just outside Lambert's Bay this guest house is excellent. Very quiet with good spacious communal accommodation and coastal views. Breakfast not the best we have had in SA but more than adequate. Well positioned for exploring this unspoilt coastline.

The most beautiful venue. Service great. They really go the extra mile. We have stayed ON THE DUNES in the honeymoon suite and it was ons of the highlights of my travels. I highly recommend Grootveli.

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Oppiduin section of this lodge during our visit to the flowers. It is very rustic, but the architecture is delightful and the views of the wild and windswept coast are quite outstanding. We had the honeymoon suite which was basic but comfortable, although the shower was somewhat bipolar: you know...

This accommodation was a pleasant surprise with great views of the Atlantic ocean. The accommodation is a few kilometers outside Lamberts Bay quite close to the Muisbosskerm outside restaurant. The rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable with DSTV. The staff are excellent and very friendly and looked after us during our stay. This is a great base when exploring these parts...

We stayed at the Oppiduin section of this lodge. With its location right on the beach and no neighbours for miles around, it is a unique and rare find. Where can you still find kilometres of your own private beach anywhere anymore? The sunsets were perfect and the general west Coast charm was very evident from the managers and staff....

In the vicinity of Lamberts Bay this is by far the best option for accommodation. Primarily a wedding venue, don't be afraid to stay there on your travels through the West Coast. It is a delightful venue situated along the windswept but beautiful coastline. If available take the Skulphuisie option on the dunes. The view from the bedroom and lounge...

A charming place in 2 parts and well worth the journey. The main house is clean, extremely spacious with outstanding service. The gardens are a lovely tranquil spot. We had room 5 in the main house and overlooking the sea and it was very comfortable and provided everything required. The rooms on the beach, 200 metres away, had a communal...
