Was an excellent stay, will definitely return again as soon as possible. The food was divine and the staff well experienced and beyond friendly. Being close to the beach provided an beautiful view to the sea. Always clean and properly taken care of. Rooms are perfect for all occasions.

This is definately my hotel of choice when breaking away for business and pleasure. The vibrant look and feel makes you just want to kick off your shoes and relax. The staff are friendly, efficient and most impressive of all, they remember your name. Tha bar/pool area makes for a great relaxing atmosphere after a long, hot day out and... More

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.

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
