Yes, it's cheap, but there are other cheap place in the area, rather try others. I had a hair on my bed, and then the ants came through the bathroom window. They sent a guy to clean the ants, didn't change our room. after he left, there were still ants because of a hole in the window. so they sent... More

The only upside is the price, but as a traveller we only paid for the room. customer service is no existent. The receptionist working night and day on the weekend of the 9th to the 11th, was unfriendly, frustrated, irritated, and gave false info as a former hotel employee of 6 years I could easily pick that up. the directory...

It's always difficult to give 5 stars to a budget hotel, and perhaps this one had a few quirks, but what we got for our incredibly cheap rate was a clean, fresh stay with no hassles. We stayed in a standard twin, in a large block - not romantic or fantastic - but good beds, bathroom, modern TV with standard... More

Enjoyed our stay. The kids had lots of fun and shopping centres are nearby. So is the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. Should I come to these parts again I will come around but maybe in the garden rooms not the Inn.

The Bayshore Inn is a very nice place to stay at. Staff are freindly. The only problem encountered was that the power kept tripping for some of the plugs for the block of rooms which resulted in no TV and no way to charge any device. Also, the wifi is only available in public places (restaurant, bar, lounge). It would... More

We stayed for 1 night in a standard double room. The room itself was nice: good size, comfortable bed, cable TV and en-suite shower. however the problem was with getting to the room! We had to wait for over an hour to have it ready, even though we were way pass check-in time and we noted in advance our estimated... More

The hotel is clean but basic. The food is expensive,some staff vary from friendly to not so friendly. Bar closes very early 9.00pm. This hotel is ok for a one night stop over for commercial travellers etc it's not for anyone on holiday

They advertise a room with a bath in it but you get a room with a shower. Pillows very uncomfortable and bed very hard. The bar man was on leave and you can't get a cocktail. There is no lounges in the bar and atmosphere is cold. The food was good and the best cheese and tomato omelette I had... More

Our room was basic but clean and comfortable. We were traveling with our daughter and her three young children. She had a challenge with her room but the next day when we checked out the manager did not charge for that room.

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.
