We stayed there for 3 nights and found it very good value. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. We would return again. Breakfast we thought at 110 rand each was rather expensive so ate else where.

I was pleasantly surprised with such a great value for money at the Bay shore Inn. Its actually operated by Protea Hotels and was not surprised with such great service overall. You certainly get your money's worth for under R500 per night and I was definitely happy with that.

Had such an amazing experience at this hotel. Great service, all staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was good and plenty to choose from. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Location is fantastic for the beach. Was there for two night for a conference.

This is a typical chain hotel but it is very clean and the staff are super helpful so for the price it is well recommended. Wifi is only in the main building which is annoying but it is a good connection and fast so cant complain too much.

It is a beautiful and neat budget hotel which is not too far from the waterfront. Staff members were friendly. The front desk staff need to spend more time at the reception area to avoid keeping customers waiting. We experienced problems with the electronic room key and the reception was already closed.
