Pure bliss!
Overlooking Gordon's Bay, the Chocolate Box is a paradise in which to relax and unwind. The room was fantastic with all the mod cons you could need. They even have cooking facilities and a DVD library should you want a night in. We just loved it here, the hospitality is incredible and breakfast out of this world! Thank you so much for a perfect stay.

Great location, great hotel, great staff
We spent four nights at the Chocolate Box after Two Oceans and was pleasantly surprised at the proximity to the Helderberg and its wine farms and restaurants. The staff were super friendly and treated us like family. The views and sunsets were to die for and the rooms large, well maintained and very comfortable.

Chocolate delight
Olaf and his team are fantastic, so welcoming and very knowledgeable about the local area. The breakfast offers juices, coffees and teas, cheese and bread selection, cereal, and a menu for eggs and other hot items. The location is great, with an amazing view of the bay, and fantastic as a base for exploring along the coast road in either direction. Olaf suggested some amazing restaurants and vineyards to visit. I'll definitely be staying there next time I visit South Africa! Much more welcoming than a hotel but with all the same facilities.

What a gem!
What a fantastic experience. Olaf and Bernadette were fascinatingly helpful. The room opens into the the gardens and the view of the mountains and the bay. The custom breakfast was spectacular and sumptuous, with a side of fresh local fruits. Olaf got us a fabulous degustation reservation at Waterkloolf. In short, the area, the cuisine, the hospitality were all top-notch.

8/10 Very good

Ideally placed to explore the surrounding area. The owners were very welcoming and attentive to guests needs. Accommodation was elegantly contemporary yet calm and comfortable. Breakfast particularly good. Bernadette , Brad and Olaf work hard to ensure you have the best possible experience as their guests. No hesitation in recommending.
