We did the Wild Coast Meander hike and was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Definately the best in Transkei. We had the most wonderful seafood dinner. The owners are lovely people. We will return to this hotel. Caroli O'Kennedy

Kob Inn is amazing. The facilities are excellent and well maintained and the level of service is outstanding, due to the fact that the more than adequate staff compliment, led by constantly visible owners Violet and Daan, is without exception, competent, efficient and genuinely friendly. The food is unbelievably good with a daily varying menu. All in all a great... More

Kob Inn has stunning setting, perched right on the edge of the rocks looking onto the sea. The staff were very welcoming and the owner host... More

We have just returned from our annual holiday spent at Kob Inn, without a doubt it is one of the best hotels along the Wild Coast, it has an amazing view overlooking the sea and within 2 minutes walk to beaches on either side. Most of the rooms are sea facing, but one can opt for a non sea facing... More

We stayed two nights at Kob Inn but it felt like a week. So relaxed atmosphere. Good food, excellent value for money. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Sunsets over the ocean were stunning. Will visit again.

We stayed at the Kob Inn last week when we did a 100km hike on the Transkei Coast. Lovely view, fantastic food and hospitality. I cannot wait to go back! The cook is an amazing host and publishes a daily newsletter with the daily menu and weather. It feels like a family.

Kob Inn is beautifully located on a gorgeous stretch of the Wild Coast. The rooms are pretty basic but comfortable, and the sea views are stunning. We enjoyed nice beach hikes, canoeing up the river and just relaxing by the pool or the bar. It is full board, and the food is excellent. Be prepared for the last 30 km... More

Wonderful old fashioned Transkei. This is how we remember our childhood holidays. Sea,Sun, Outdoors and friends. Everything is perfect for a real rest. Great wholesome food, fantastic views far away from the buzz of big cities.

We have travelled most of every square inch of South Africa, Spain, Portugal, UK and much of the USA and I have to admit that we will be hard-pressed to find a more unassuming, down to earth holiday establishment than Kobb Inn. The owners have taken care to ensure that this resort personifies the idea of peace and quiet. A... More
