Fantastic Apartment style accommodation, worked perfectly for our family. I would highly recommend this property to any traveller. Clean and neat with lovely shower and bedding, awesome pillows, woke up to a spectacular view. Great small touches - very thoughtful. Will be back!

The Hotel is good, unfortunately other people booked in there were rowdy, had no control over their noizy, loud children until late in the night. The hotel has no provision for emergency power or lights during load shedding and we were given candles but no matches to light it with. I would recommend battery powered fixed LED lights.

The accommodation was modern and large. The bathroom was the best one we used on our trip including a biscuit with the tea making facility. Food was excellent and original . A walk in the garden to the estuary was very pleasant.
