Rooms was clean and ok, the door have poor locks wich is required in south africa or you will have burglars standing in your room in no time. The location is great for paragliders since you can take off from the lawn just outside the hotel if the winds are in your favour. If you are not a pilot I... More

When we walked into the hotel, the reception staff were quite unfriendly and I didn't feel welcome at all. We were given a key and pointed in the direction of our room, we weren't even asked if we needed assistance with our bags! The entrance to the hotel looks very run down, and it possibly isn't dirty, but has that... More

What a disappointing night we had at this hotel, if I had known we would have cancelled before arriving. Only two positives was that the room was clean and the hotel is situated right on the cliff by the beach, but sadly that is where the positives stop. The hotel is rundown on the inside and the outside. There was... More

The website is a complete misrepresentation of what the place is actually like. The place is run down with broken windows, broken locks and visible fire damage where an aircon unit obviously caught alight. The decor is outdated with fake flowers everywhere? The staff were friendly enough, but were not forthcoming with information. To find out about the restaurant opening... More

Good hotel for family get togethers. Reasonally priced. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Not licenced but free to bring own alcoholic drinks into hotel and also diningroom. Close to shops, restaurants and petrol station. Very close to sea and beech but with about 150 steps to get there.

Coffee in room only for one cup per person, they can surely give extra coffee. I was really dissepointed you are on holiday and then... More

The first thing i noticed was that none of the staff wore uniforms, not very reassuring when someone wearing a hoody checks you in. The hotel must have been rather grand on its day, but now, it is very very sad looking, our room looked like it came out of the 70's some of the lights didnt work, the beds... More

This hotel is definitely not as portrayed on the internet. There is no spa facilities. The tennis courts are in a bad condition. The building needs renovations and the rooms smell damp. The breakfast is OK, and the staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel definitely has potential but needs proper management.
