We were warmly welcomed. Nothing was a problem. Always accommodating and going that extra mile! Staff were very polite and professional! A very well run Guesthouse! We definitely will return. It was like we were in our own home.

We had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful Albatros guesthouse in April 2015. The owners, Bessie & Andre made us feel right at home with their hospitality and kindness. The room was extremely comfortable, clean, spacious with an excellent sea view. It is within walking distance from the town. The property itself has excellent security with enough parking space inside... More

What a fantastic Guest House. Bessie and Andre and the most hospitable people who really have their guests comfort and peace at heart. The welcome when we arrived was amazing, as were the welcome treats. The Guest House is so beautifully clean and well decorated. Our room, the honeymoon suite, was to die for with a stunning view (which all... More

6 of us stayed at the Albatross from 27/03 to 29/03 2015. Bessie and Andre really made us feel welcome on arrival with welcome drinks and snacks. The breakfasts were excellent and special dietary needs for 2 people in the group were catered for. The Guest house itself was clean and neat. We will certainly be back for another stay.
