Wonderful hospitality and the dinner and breakfast was great. Comfortable and clean accommodation with all necessary facilities. Bar right on the beach and 180 degree sea views from our bedroom. Our hiking party made to feel most welcome - thank you!

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.
