The location was convenient for our needs. I was actually looking for accommodation on or as close to the beach front which this is not. Breakfast at R120 pp buffet is a bit expensive in my opinion, but I suppose that would be a standard cost at other establishments. Overall, my rating would be good.

You definitely pay a price for this low budgetted hotel - sleep deprivation - noisy noisy noisy!

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.

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
