Majority of the previous reviews on this accommodation is absolute spot on. We stay at Jax around 5 times a year for our conferences and cannot praise it any higher. Jax PLace is a fantastic place to relax and unwind. As a coastal boy, after a long days boardroom conference in Gauteng, staying at Jax is a perfect unwind session.... More

Unfortunately I must have stayed in the bad room.... There were a couple of things worth noting from my recent experience: 1 It seemed to me the shower had never been cleaned as I was sliding in a layer of oil on the floor. Dirty shower walls are one thing but a floor coated in dirt and oil is not... More

I liked my stay at Jax Place. The reception was friendly, the room was spacious and tastefully appointed. The breakfasts were simply great. No hassles at all from checking in to checking out. Small point - my room, number 15 was just out of reach of the wifi and I had to come down to the deck to access it.... More

What a welcome- from the gate intercom to reception and all the friendly, attentive staff. Professional service, with attention to detail- we were given extra blankets as the weather had changed- these little extras make all the difference.
