The room and location were outstanding, with a great view of the Indian Ocean just across the street. The hosts were very gracious and accommodating, arranging transportation from the airport to the hotel for us. The hot breakfast was very good and a great way to start the day. My only regret was that I didn't stay there longer!

It was a little pricey out of season for us South African's. Service levels at breakfast could be upped a little with speed and attention to detail. It was delicious when it arrived and the staff where... More

Quietly located right opposite the beach with fabulous sea views over the Indian Ocean. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff and the owner's welcome was both warm and genuine. We visited mid winter but were still sunbathing all day. Perfect place for a relaxing stay.

There is nothing negative we can say, the people, location, food were all excellent. This is the only place we have returned to in 3 visits to South Africa, it is that good. From the warm welcome to the sad farewells, a great place to relax.
