Had the most relaxing and enjoyable time at this establishment. Bessie went out of her way to make sure that we had everything we need and that we were comfortable. Breakfast was excellently prepared and presented and staff were efficient. Rooms were clean and well maintained and what was great was that you never saw the staff going about their... More

A wonderful find in an otherwise bland, somewhat aging coastal town. The Internet site accurately describes the establishment and my booking, done directly with the owners via e-mail, was accurate and hassle- free. The rooms were wonderful – comfortable, spacious and with great views over the coast. It is conveniently located – a little bit of luxury – after a... More

Excellent customer service; clean rooms and bathrooms; fantastic breakfasts. I felt like a queen staying there. We were welcomed by a friendly hostess and showed around the premises. Even our smallest needs were met. Staff are well trained and the atmosphere was professional yet friendly and warm. This place is highly recommended! We will use them again. Braai facilities; pool...

The owners were amazing. Very helpful. The rooms were perfect and the breakfast wad great. Would definitely recommend. The place is clean. The view from our room was just great. The only issue was the air conditioning but other than that we were happy.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in the Family Unit. It is unfortunate that, due to Eskom's load shedding program, we were without electricity at times. We wish you and your family a blessed Christmas and a very prosperous 2015. The Albatros Guest House More

In the hospitality industry we are taught that the client is always right. There comes a time, however, that blatant untruths must be exposed for what they are. When you phone and enquired about availability you were told that we could accommodate you but a 50% deposit and a completed booking form was needed to confirm a booking. You never... More
