At 4pm on Friday, with only 3 nights left in our glitch free 7 week African holiday, we arrived at The Lofts. We were really looking forward to our weekend stay. However, as we commenced check in, for a pre-booked (in May) 2 night stay in a 2 bedroom apartment, we were unceremoniously informed by Monica at the desk that,"No,... More

Think the title says it all. The Lofts are a very cute B&B on the adorable Thesen Island, and the fact that the breakfast part of the B&B is at Ile De Pain, almost makes up for every other short coming. The short comings: the walls were incredibly thin- we could every word of our neighbors conversations including their "in-bed"... More

I stayed atThe Lofts for the Karoo2Coast MTB race. Great accommodation (loads of space), well located but what really impressed me was the "extra mile" service from the friendly staff. Definately recommend it & I'm hoping to return in the near future.

Excellent location with view over the lagoon and access to top quality restaurants. Our room was spacious and well equipped. Friendly and professional staff. Free undercover parking. Highly recommended - we will most certainly return.

Stayed in one of the self catering lofts. It was incredibly spacious and comfortable and certainly beats any ordinary hotel room for the same price. Breakfast at Il de Pain or the Turbine for your own account. Very generous coffee station. Loved the honesty bar and the general no fuss attitude.

We stayed here for one night and were disappointed. Small room with basic bathroom. Very limited view of the lagoon. Overpriced for the standard of the room. The best part of the stay was the breakfast at the bakery around the corner.

We enjoyed our stay in the Lofts very much. The staff is friendly, the hotel is nicely located and has a surprising division. What we did not like is that the rooms (we were in 3b) are very noisy (sound of television, coughing, etc could clearly be heard), which we would not expect for such a respectable hotel.
