Stayed there over Christmas, rooms are well sized, comfortable and clean. Air conditioner and good view of the sea. Good breakfast included also. It's a 2 minutes drive away from a public beach. Only issue was bath trap leaked but we used the shower instead.

It is my second time staying at a B&B in South Africa and must say I really have not been disappointed. The service is very good and personal. Rooms are very beautifully decorated and have more of a home feeling which is really nice. My room had a glass wall with a door on a huge balcony which faced the... More

We took three rooms at the African Peninsula in January. The views were spectacular, we had mongoose trotting through the gardens one morning. The rooms are well equipped with AC, tea and coffee, bath and separate shower. We ate in the restaurant each night and apart from a very limited menu on the sunday night, the food was excellent and... More

This place is a true gem - I stayed for only one night but the hospitality warmth and quality of sleep I had in just one night made me feel like I'd had a week holiday. I stayed in room 4 - which has a big terrace facing the sea, a roll top bath, powerful shower, sofa and a large... More

Situated in an upmarket residential area with fabulous views over the Indian Ocean, this guest house really has it all. One of the biggest advantages being the onsite restaurant offering great meals for lunch and dinner at exceptionally good prices. My colleague and I had rooms 3 and 4, both of which were well furnished and spacious. Room 3 had... More

From the minute we booked to the moment we (sadly) had to leave, the helpfulness, hospitality, charm and courtesy remained the key to our wonderful stay at the African Peninsula. The room (No 3) has a remarkable view of the beautiful Indian Ocean where every morning we awoke to the lapping of the waves on the shore directly beneath us;... More

On arrival, we were checked in by Harry who makes you feel at home right away. The room we stayed in (no. 6) was spacious, with 2 separate bedrooms, a kitchenette, bathroom with a separate bath and shower and the most stunning view from a decking balcony / seating area which overlooks the Indian Ocean. Each morning you can hear... More
