Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely location on beach front and can go walking along promenade. Excellent little restuarant next door to the hotel. Rooms clean and neat but could do with update. Did have problem opening room door which meant going all the way back to reception to get key card fixed.

I stayed here for 9 nights for the Test match, South Africa v Australia. Easy to find when driving from the airport. I was in an Executive room, 733 which had great views over parkland to the sea about 150 metres away and away to the right. A huge room with a King bed and a two seater settee and... More

We stayed in the same room in 2008 as it is ideally located to watch the Iron Man which my son participates in. Needless to say the room remains high quality accommodation, neat, clean and tidy and very comfortable. The breakfast caters even for the fussiest health nut as well as those who want to really over indulge. Great hotel.... More

We only stayed for one night and really did not use any of the services. However, the room was comfortable and modern, the staff friendly and breakfast good. The location is good and we did manage an evening walk along the sea.

A simple one night stay on our jouney down the Garden Route. Baggage was handled quickly. Room was clean and tidy and a good size though the bathroom was a bit small. Excellent sea view. Up early the following morning for a walk on the sea front to take photos of the dawn, amazing how may walkers, joggers and cyclists... More

Beautiful Hotel is all i can say. The brazilian team stayed here for the fifa world cup. The beach is just a walk away from the entrance, walking distance from the Boardwalk Casino. The hotel has huge spacious conference rooms. Good food and excellent service.

It has a very airy lobby, the rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed with a hairdryer, safe, refrigerator and modern showers. On the second floor is an internet station (all equipment worked).

Ok hotel but not lavish. Rooms are spacious and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The traditional restaurant next to the hotel is worth a visit. It is the views if the bay though, the short walk to the beach and the beach run-route that I think are the real draws for this place.

Stayed in 4 hotels in the Protea group recently as member of a tour group. They were all superb, well appointed, elegant interior design, extremely comfortable beds and bedrooms, good sized showers with plenty of hot water.
