I stayed here for eight nights and was slightly nervous about the whole holiday as I had never travelled by myself before. The hotel staff were very warm, friendly and extremely helpful and soon put me at my ease. The reception staff were wonderful sorting out my Wifi and I phone for me as I had never used the thing...

The hotel is the best view point on whales in Harmnos. We took two rooms with ocean views.

The rooms are very spacious and large, Tastefully decorated and modern. The dining room... More

The only thing we enjoyed about this hotel is the fact that it is very central we could walk where ever we wanted to go, the staff that we did see were friendly. Breakfast can be more of a variety, I had the english breakfast it was very oily and the mushrooms were way to salty. The rooms were comfortable... More

We stayed here for one night as we were journeying from Cape Town to the Garden Route. The hotel is a great location and the rooms are very impressive, the bed in particular is massive and so comfy. There was a little confusion when we arrived with 2 staff trying to give us different instructions and possibly one too many... More

Had a room with a sea view - lovely. Room was big, clean and very comfortable. Nice having a kettle and fridge in the room. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Don't write many hotel reviews - but I think they deserve one.. thank you :-)

The location for this hotel cannot be beaten. The view itself cannot be beaten, but add whales into that mix and well... The staff were very friendly and helpful. Could not ask for more. Thank you. Breakfast was excellent

On the 18 of July I followed up with no reply and I have just sent through yet another email requesting... More

This Hotel has the perfect location. Close to town centre and shops and over looking the beautiful bay. Ons can sit at the pool and do whale watching. The rooms are modern and well equipped. Breakfast is tasty but small in variety- my egg Benedict on a croissant was lovely but my husbands omelette was very pale and tasteless, looked... More
