The Point is on a great spot and the rooms look over the ocean. Which more than makes up for fairly dated interiors. The service is really good and the breakfast was surprisingly great. Would definitely recommend. Just don't expect marble bathrooms or modern decor.

We only stayed 2 nights for bed & breakfast. There was a full range of buffet breakfast with call order specials for eggs. Reasonable selection but nothing outstanding. The rooms are rather drab with Formica & blistered plywood paneling, wet-rot skirting board, worn carpets, mildewed curtains, chipped bathroom tiles etc - very much like you used to find at Butlins...

Decided to have a Sunday lunch. Half of the desserts weren't available on the menu. We ordered prawns and lamb nuckles was a total disaster food was ice cold. Meat was tough. This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel. They need to go back to the drawing board.

The location is beautiful and all the roos have ocean view. The breakfast was ok and the staff was nice. The extra bed they gave us was an old mattress and very unconfortable. The bathrooms and the common areas of the hotel look quite old.

We spent four weeks touring Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa and this hotel was the worst. The staff showed no interest, the rooms were basically in the basement and smelt musky, the curtains had mould on them, the breakfast was overcrowded and had a lack of food - an absolute shocker!

Be careful with this hotel, it can be either extreme! They would say sea facing rooms, but you get that only if you are on 2nd floor and above. If you are on the ground floor and first floor, you only see rock wall from your room! The rooms are okay ish, in some rooms the lighting dont work /... More

Stayed in a family unit with two bedrooms, each with own bathroom. The bedrooms were very crowded and had no outside Windows. Spacious kitchen was fairly well supplied, but lounge area was not very comfortable. Close to ocean but little view, and close to eating establishments.

We had lunch at the hotel. Their burgers were not up to standard. The chips tasted if it was fried in fish oil, and the burger itself was tasteless. My son got something completely different than what he had ordered.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a round trip through South Africa. The location of the hotel at the sea side is excellent with magnificent views on the sea. Perhaps it is this advantage that makes the management sloppy in the treatment of their guests. It is most probably the only 4-star hotel in which the receptionist sits... More
