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

We had an enjoyable stay at Kob Inn after we adjusted to the culture. The location is excellent (we don't mind the bad roads) and you feel very remote. Decent selection of activities. The rooms were comfortable except that hot water was only available at certain times (even though the room guide said our room had hot water 24/7). The... More

We are a family of four who stayed at Kob Inn Beach Resort. We stayed there for 9 nights over Christmas and New Year. We had a wonderful, relaxing but fun holiday. You park your car when you arrive, and only get in it again when you leave. The food is simple but very tasty and homely, we enjoyed every... More

Good, better, Kob Inn. My family and I visited Kob Inn from 3 to 10 January 2015 - what a pleasant surprise were we in for. In deciding on your next holiday destination you look at the different websites,picture galleries, and read reviews written by visitors. However, words can be deceiving and pictures can be misleading. It is only when... More

One of the better roads on the Wild Coast with road signs advising which road to take to get to the Resort. Friendly, polite and helpful staff. Room was clean, with tea and coffee, a full bathroom with lovely towels. The bed was king size and most comfortable and the view from our balcony was like nothing on earth. Great... More
