Good value accommodation. Would return again. There is a honesty bar, but snacks would be an added bonus. No pool but apparently installing one soon. Great rooms and excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.

I just could'nt concentrate during negotiations with our RSA Business Partners; my Attention keeps getting ragged out to the sea. It is one of the most beautiful vantage Points I have been to in my life. Plus the discrete hospitallity of serious RSA Hoteliers. I am stunned, and I am happy to share.

Your review is lovely and I thank you for your words! When we designed our rooms at 305 Guest House we insisted the rooms should create an ambience of space. Having a sofa facing towards the Indian Ocean allows you to take in the panoramic views as well as look at our spacious lawn. Giving that relaxing but energising feel... More

It's not often that you get the chance to experience Amanzimtoti from such an exquisite vantage, with every luxurious detail complementing the experience. Our spacious room was colorfully and tastefully decorated, with every convenience taken care of. The sea facing couch was particularly appreciated as it made sunrise just that much more enjoyable and the breezy balcony kept us cool... More

the accommodation was what we expected. As for the kitchen I wasn't impressed, a lady serving us in morning shoes I mean really? where is Hygiene? and we were promised Buffet and it wasn't. Heads were not even covered I would go back to sleep but skip the meals.

Enjoyed the gym as it has a direct view to the seaside which was very favorable. The room that I stayed in had all the amenities necessary for comfort and business accolade. The bath was of great size and breakfast menu served in the morning had lots of variety.
