This establishment is well located. Staff are most welcoming, helpful & friendly. The bedroom was a good size and tastefully furnished. We did not find the open plan bedroom style a problem at all. The small touches of chocolates and welcoming card did not go unnoticed. Has well sized lounge with view over the pool. Only negative is no off... More

This guesthouse is wonderful. It is chic and stylish and a bit quirky. Our room was a studio room. The facilities were great although a bit disappointed there was no fridge to chill water etc but that is my only negative point.It had everything else you needed and if you wanted something else, they were always available to help you....

This was an interesting experience. We wanted to find something modern and new and read reviews for this place. It was very modern but not a large hotel and much more of a hostel feeling as all the rooms are very close together or a bed and breakfast. It is a big town home made into a hotel and be... More

stayed here for 2 nights and everything was great. Room nice and comfortable, friendly staff, good location for the waterfront- about a 10-15 minute walk and no problem for the hotel to call you a taxi- and excellent breakfast. Also a lovely garden area in the back with sun loungers which is perfect to sit out in after a long... More

My husband and I stayed and it was perfect for what we wanted. Really funky décor, such friendly and helpful staff, our room was lush - spacious, clean, light and a complementary drink from the bar - we slept very well here. Gorgeous outside area with pool and plenty of sun if you want to soak it up. There is... More

My daughter and I only stayed for 2 nights but were treated with friendly, excellent service that started well before our arrival! As we were working on our SA itinerary, both Michelle and Bianca were able to promptly reply to questions and provided us with dinner reservations and airport transport. This small hotel has a funky 70's vibe in décor... More

My husband and I had only had the pleasure of staying at this chic boutique hotel for only one night. We had excellent customer service during our brief stay. The staff are friendly and professional.

Losing track of the number of stays here - is it 4 or 5? Anyway, another successful visit and if I had to put it down to one thing, it's easy: the staff, all of whom are lovely. Especial credit to the great guys who man things overnight and always have a smile no matter what the time. One observation... More
