We visited Kob Inn during the June holidays and had a wonderfull time. It is the most beautiful hotel with very friendly staff. We had the best oysters and good food. The rooms were very neat. I will recommend this hotel to anybody. A wonderfull experience.

Lovely position right on the beach. Rooms spacious and clean. Food - very nice, considering the location. Easy going . Not much for kids to do. There is a strenuous 12km walk to Mazeppa Bay hotel. Absolutely beautiful and serene views.

I would definitely recommend that this be on your holiday list of places to stay! As a family, we had a fantastic time, quadbiking, boating down the river and going for fantastic walks along the beach! Thankfully the ferryman waited for us to get us across the river on our return walk... Along with the excellent memories, we also left... More

The point of a Wild Coast holiday is to get away. If you want a boutique resort with fake flora and regulated temperature and humidity, you are in the wrong eco system. Kob Inn, with Vital Violet and Dapper Daan, is the real deal! Superb food (will I ever be hungry again..?) and an endless supply of fine wines accompany... More

It was such a surprise to see this place the next morning as I only arrived after dark the previous day. (My GPS decided to take me elsewhere as she has not been updated, but then I did witness two bulls having a domestic in the middle of the road in the dark oblivious to my vehicle for about ten...

This was our second visit to the Kob Inn. We were here in 1985 on honeymoon. We would recommend the Kob Inn to all, especially South Africans. It is a challenge negotiating the dirt road to Kob Inn if you don't have a 4x4 but slow, careful driving will get you to this well run, friendly staffed resort. Valerie, the... More

After a very late arrival at night I was not able to fully appreciate the the scenary, but on Saturday morning on waking up, I was amazed. The ocean was in my view, the sun was glistening over the ocean and I woke up from my comfortable big bed ready for my day. After walking on the beach and the... More

Our family stayed at the Kob Inn for a couple of days. What a pleasant experience from the beautiful sea view spacious rooms to all the fantastically prepared meals. Although the road is gravel with a bit of potholes, the stay really made up for this. All the personnel are very friendly and always willing to help. The reception was... More

My husband and I selected Kob Inn for a family trip and were very disappointed on nearly every front. The drive was far longer than anticipated. We were hoping it would be worth it but I can tell you it was not. The entire place needs extensive renovation. The rooms and all other facilities smelled of strong mildew. The food... More
