We really enjoyed staying at the Robertsons B&B. Sue was so welcoming and obliging, so was the housekeeper Adinah- she was so patient with our kids. We really felt at home here & it was perfectly suited for our purpose there. The view of the beach was calming and beautiful. Pics shown are as is at the establishment 😊 Nice... More

The Robertsons have opened up their home to allow guests to stay with them. We had the upstairs room which had a small balcony with a sea view. The breakfasts were great and the Robertsons are very friendly. There are 3 or 4 restaurants within a short drive and a swimmable beach with shark nets about 10 minutes away. Mrs.... More

We booked in during December, and had a great experience here. Room 3 was allocated to us. It was extremely comfortable, with everything we needed. The bathroom was very large, with a bath, shower and double basin. Linen and towels were provided, and were clean and fresh. Breakfast was included, and was served by such a friendly staff member -... More

I am not normally a fan of B&B's since I do not like sharing my living space. This one has turned my opinion on that. It is very clean and neat. The owners make every effort to ensure a comfortable stay and the food that they serve is excellent. I will be back for more.

We enjoyed two night here along our journey from Joburg to Cape Town. We had intended to go shark cage diving, but the weather prevented that. Nonetheless, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Robertsons, and the chance to have a relaxing break from traveling. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the shower was perfectly hot with great pressure!... More

This is a lovely little gem on the South Coast. We stayed there in anticipation of some diving the next day, but unfortuneatly the weaather didn't play along. It didn't detract from the wonderful stay we had. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, recommending restaurants and things to do. They are avid divers as well, so they understand the...

The room at Robertsons turned out to be the nicest (and cheapest) room we got to stay in on our 2 week trip around SA and Mozambique. We came to Umkomaas for scuba diving. Sue arranged the diving for us and cooked us 2 nice breakfasts (before and after the dive). Small watchout for the dive center Umkomaas Lodge Dive... More

We had an awesome time at the Robertsons (pun intended). The room we stayed in was clean, well equipped and had everything you could want. We came here on a diving trip and it's obvious that Sue often caters for divers. We got a light breakfast at 6AM and a full breakfast after our dive. There are proper hangers outside... More

It is a lovely place with a nice garden and a beautifull house at one of the best diving spots of south africa. But the very best are Sue and Daryll! They take care of everything and make you feel at home, nothing seems to much. We really recommend this B&B!!

My husband, eight year old daughter and I spent four great days at “At the Robertsons B&B.” I cannot say enough about Sue and her husband’s wonderful hospitality! Not only are they gracious hosts, but they are also interesting people. We learned a great deal about life in that part of South Africa from talking to Sue and her husband.... More
