Stayed in the apartment section known as One Fine Stay. Booked through a website. Didn't seem to make mention of the confusing fact that the building is not named One Fine Stay but indeed Ocean Breeze or Ocean View. Seeing there is not much of a reception from the outside, I got through the undercover parking gate and parked in... More

Beautifully situated but not a good experience. The shower doesn't work properly leaving the floor covered with water. No hot water on the morning we left. Phone disconnected to reception. Enjoyed safe parking and friendly reception. In need of basic maintenance.

Staff service was good with help forthcoming in the lift without requesting. Has potential. Needs more attention to guest care and room readiness in general. The room is cold with the wall heater insufficient. Recently refurbished with ceiling not properly done. Water wasted when the hot water takes at from three to five minutes to start flowing. Management need to... More

Basic lodging, nothing fancy. Hotel at the end of long beachfront. Our room was quite small, the wifi is verrrrrry slow. Not really a placy to plan your holiday around. There is safe parking in the basement. Although there is a fish restaurant downstairs there is no other restaurants in the area.

The upmarket price was not reflected by Management by name Colin that promised to get back to us regarding the duty manager at reception when we booked in the evening. The sub-standard room that was linked to another room. The real bad breakfast experience. The hotel is not worth more than R290 pp breakfast including and not R1400.00 as paid.... More

Not good. Arrived and followed the sign to the basement hotel parking area. Tried to use the lift, but where I would have pressed the button to go up, there was only an open hole with electrical wires dangling about, so I had to take the stairs instead. Reception not very well organized - took about 20 minutes just to... More

This hotel is in serious need of attention. It is quite modern, but the facilities are very badly maintained. Even the switches for the lifts were broken - the all-important ground-floor one had only a "Down" switch, and others had unsafe-looking holes that you poked in hope. In the conference centre, one of the two toilets was broken, the electric... More
