The Hotel is quaint, and the hosts tried. Was a bit disappointed by the New Years Eve dinner. Although we knew it would be a braai, they could have put more effort in to ensure the food was at least good. The pap was raw, meat tasted bland and boiled, and was so tough, you were still chewing the next... More

My family and I decided to visit the Malagas hotel over the New Year's period. We were left underwhelmed, to say the least. Although this hotel was described as a pleasant little getaway spot with friendly and helpful staff, we found that it was everything but. To begin with, the New Year's dinner (sloppy seafood 'cocktail', cold pap and a... More

I really liked the Malagas Hotel, and would go there any holiday or weekend. The newly updated superior rooms are the way to go.The hotel is suited in a unique environment where you feel at one with nature! When we arrived the staff were most friendly, and greeted us and showed us to our room. The rooms are beautifully decorated,... More

We recently went for a two night cruise on the Breede River operated by Malagas Hotel. Our late booking was well handled and the administration and formalities before boarding was completed in about one and a half hour. Staff was very friendly and competent. On the downside, the boats are really a bit aged and need some attention, especially the... More

We did the 200km Double century cycle race and the hotel staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs for our race. From frozen bottles to great nutritional food both pre and post race. Although it was further away from the start than we'd have chosen, everyone really enjoyed their stay and we'd highly recommend Malagas Hotel to... More

We are active people and enthusiastic kayakers, blessed to be able to celebrate our 59th wedding anniversary. What better place could we have chosen than the Malagas Hotel. We were warmly received and allocated modest but comfortable accommodation - just what we wanted. Food was excellent as was the personal service at the table. In other words, we were made... More

It is unfortunate that you had such an bad experience at the Hotel. We are in the process of upgrading the rooms, unfortunately we cannot do all the rooms at the same time and will take this as positive criticism. Regarding the other guests that were loud and drunk - unfortunately we do not know how people will behave on... More

The Staff @ Malagas Hotel is the only reason that we'll go back! They are a blessing to the hotel. Overpriced food & drinks and you never feel relaxed. Dinner that was suppose to be the highlight of the day is a rushed affair. Was very disappointed.

Thank you for the feedback. I will address the restaurant staff to see where the problem lies so other guests don't have to feel rushed in the future. Regarding the prices - we are in the same bracket as most other establishments in the area. More

We stayed at Malagas Hotel for a family weekend away. The room (number 17) was dusty, cobwebs all around, the carpet had a big nasty stain and the bathroom needed a good scrub. Especially behind the door and floor. Our room unfortunately had no windows but coloured glass doors on either side letting in almost no natural light. Lots of... More
