I have been staying at this hotel on and off for some 10 years now and have seen management change a few times but the one constant is the location and beautiful views even the roads have improved. Most of my trips have been business with only two being for leisure. This is always a great stop to relax and... More

Spent two nights at the hotel. The hotel is located overlooking the bay. The rooms are clean and the whole hotel complex is neat and tidy. The beach is right on the hotels doorstep. The beach is clean and safe for children. The staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The food... More

Situated in the majestic untouched Wildcoast. Wonderful stay at the hotel, friendly helpful staff, safe & secure, close to the ocean, great food! Love where the Coffee/bar/games room lounge area. close to the beach is situated, such a real holiday feeling. Heavenly Break Away, cannot wait for our next visit.

What a super hotel! If you're looking for a rustic gem, then this is it! Food is great, staff are friendly, beautiful beach and surrounds! Lots of activities on offer.... Really lovely break away to relax and soak in the charm that is the culture and Views of Coffee Bay. A lot of litter outside the hotel, hopefully the community... More

What a find - beautiful setting - sea facing room with the sound of the ocean to ensure total relaxation. Staff were amazing and made a point of getting to know you. Food was very good with a variety of choices at each meal. Beautiful walks - absolutely idyllic setting.

This hotel has a lovely setting and wonderful sea views.. The hotel its self is very dated and a bit grotty. I believe it got new owners a couple of years ago and we expected it to be up dated by now, it looks like the new owners are not going to update it at all. The food is just... More

Hotel was a little dated - does need a refurbishment. However it was clean and comfortable. Staff, management and owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, which somehow made up for the actual hotel building. Food was average to good.

If you want to view the Hole in the Wall at Coffee Bay, Ocean View Hotel is the place to stay. It is situated on the beach. The view from the dinning room area is magnificent. We chose the all inclusive package. The food was great value for money. It was a birthday that I will always remember.

Amazing stay at a wonderful hotel. The buffet meals were absolutely delicious and the location of the hotel was perfect; it is easy to get a taste of the rich culture of the amaXhosa nearby, or go for a swim at the picturesque beach right in front of the hotel. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well-equipped, and the outside... More
