I had changed my 4x4 and wanted to try it out by going to the Wild Coast with my wife and grown up daughter. The last part of the trip was difficult after a lot of rain, and the instructions were not clear- a left turn being after 7kms. Thus we arrived very late, having booked to camp. By the... More

I read the reviews before visiting the hotel. There were some disturbing ones. We called the hotel many times to check on some of the comments we read. Well to set the record straight.....firstly the road from coffee bay to Hole in the wall is a breeze. Any vehicle can make it here. One or two areas are a little... More

This was our second time at Hole in the Wall Hotel. At first there was a bit of confusion regarding our rooms, which wasn't communicated to us at first, but was eventually sorted out. We had a beautiful view and the rooms were fairly clean. The rooms were also serviced, beds made, dishes washed and put away, which is great... More

The chalets are spacious and have a good layout. They are equiped with everything that we needed. The braai area was super! The beds and pillows... More

Our first visit to Hole in the Wall. We will definitely be back but we had some issues... Our blankets weren't clean. After the first night, had to ask housekeeping to please wash blankets as they were dusty and grimy... don't think they get washed after every room change... We hoped it was done as we were out the whole... More

After reading some reviews regarding the establishment I was very sceptical on going, we booked through our timeshare first resorts and was booked into a 4 sleeper see view chalet no 36, new modern kitchen, big open spaced bedroom with double bed, pull out couch bed for the kids. Awesome view of the sea, the landscape is full of hills,... More
