My wife and I arrived early afternoon. The room was already setup, neat and tidy. Very spacious bathroom, massive bed with breathtaking views. Literally a stone throw away from longbeach...and was the "standard" room! The fridge was restocked frequently. There was a problem with our DVD player, but within 2minutes it was sorted out. The breakfast the next day was... More

We stayed 1 night and we wished it was more!! Already planning our return trip to stay for 3 nights. Everything was wonderful - the room was large, clean and very well equipped, the view incredible, breakfast delicious and range of drinks included in the price extremely generous. We loved it - thank you.

Friendly and enthusiastic staff - nothing too much for them. Sublime view of the ocean, the distant mountains and surfbreak. Walk out right onto the beautiful beach. Clean feel throughout. Lovely breakfast. One of the best, if not the best, guest houses I have stayed in. Just one minor bit of feedback - please put a night light in the... More

The perfect getaway. Room was comfortable and very spacious, the views sublime and service impeccable. The breakfast was very good with a wide variety to choose from. Hard to fault the establishment in any way. Thanx to the staff for making us feel at home.

Small, intimate "boutique" hotel which offers excellent service in a stunning property right on the beach. We stayed in one of the down-stairs rooms which has the benefit of walking out onto the garden (also nice view) and easy access to the pool. Upstairs rooms likely have better views (judging by "living room" area which would share this view). Lots... More

Very nice, small boutique hotel in perfect beach location not far from Cape Town. Very comfortable room, well appointed bathroom. Amazing seaside view from ground floor room. Friendly staff. Will make sure to return. The pool could be better kept.

Being my first time in South Africa, the manager and staff were very helpful in transporting me from/to the airport and also helping me get around town for site seeing. The view of the ocean from the rooms is absolutely amazing. The room itself is beautiful. I can only explain the incredible beauty of this place through pictures. Check them... More
