Sea view room but windows were so dirty I could not see out Stains on couch and chairs with a funny after smell in the room. I did not want to sit or spend too much time in the room. It was fine for one night but would never be my first choice. I do not regard it as value... More

Excellent service, superb view. Hospitality was excellent and rooms very neat. The meal we enjoyed in the restaurant was most enjoyable. Special thanks to Mzukise for making it a memorable 35th Wedding anniversary. Hilo and Ronnie.

Nice hotel, but we felt that with just a little extra effort it can become a great one. No fridges in luxury rooms. No hairdryer for my wife. Not good for the price we are paying (R5 585 for 3 nights exl meals). The door of the maintenance room was open most of the time and we looked right into... More

The only plus this hotel is its location. The staff, while friendly, are extremely unhelpful and just look like they dont want to be there. The cannot process simple requests and when they do, it takes an age. The restaurant was over priced and not much can be said for the waitrons. Their is zero value for money considering what...

This really should be a better hotel. Although the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the room cleaning staff were efficient and kept the room nice and tidy, the rest of the service at the hotel was shocking. When you phone reception it takes at least 20 rings for the staff to answer the telephone. Although the staff are not... More

On this stay I found that I did not get value for money - R5,385 for 2 people for 3 nights did not include breakfast, no hairdryer, no fresh water. Although I recommend this hotel for Iron Man because it is so conveniently situated, on this stay I found the service level really poor, although the staff are very friendly... More

Hotel in a nice location, perfectly positioned across from the sea. Rooms are a nice size and comfortable. No fridge is a big oversight, and a small old tube TV with very limited channels was a big disappointment.

Perfect accommodation for the week-end of 70.3 Ironman. Close to everything. Great rooms and excellent service. All staff were very friendly and helpfull. Beachfront hotel with lovely views and walking distance from everything you need.

Although really convenient for our purpose, I found that this hotel was extremely expensive for what it offered. The beds were lumpy, many of the pillows foam chips and rather a lot of raw plaster where repairs were taking place. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful but owing to it being Ironman weekend they were full and brought... More

Reception staff is always willing to asisst and the rooms are so specious and neatly made. Ironing room is perfect and the restuarant is far the coolest. Amazing sea view and lots of attractive places
