We booked in quite late that night. The receptionist showed us the room, it was smelly. The room was in the corner of the hotel and barely had windows that can open. The carpet was so dirty that I didn't want to walk without shoes. The torn duvet cover was patched up with paw prints stiched on. Breakfast was cold... More

We have stayed at the Cutty Sark five times now, over an 8 year period, and have thoroughly enjoyed every time we stayed there. The staff is super-friendly and professional and will go the 'extra mile' for their guests. On our last visit, in June 2014, we arrived late (about 23h30) from a long road trip from Jo'burg, and they... More

I was booked into the Cutty Sark by our dive group (so am not sure of the exact costs) as we were doing a Shark Course in Scottburgh over a long weekend. The reception was relatively pleasant when I arrived. The parking area outside is a bit rough and cramped. I went all the way down the end of the... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we stayed here, came back to Scottburgh to revisit my old home town and even as a Kid this place seemed old. But as we walked into the open air reception we were reminded of the colonial quality of service this place was probably founded on. Clean, good food, great views and right on the... More

It is an example of decaying grandeur and has obviously seen better days. However, it is clean with comfortable rooms and lounges and the food is excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, right on the main swimming beach. We go with our four children and they love it. At the price it provides very... More
