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

Kob inn is a lovely, family-friendly resort. Daan and Violet are superb hosts, and the staff were mostly wondefrul.The food was very good. The rooms are fairly spacious, simple and comfortable. We had great fun swimming in the River mouth, body-boarding in the sea, horse-riding, sand-boarding on the dunes, jet-skiing etc. Sitting in the outdoor 'pub' area on a Summer,s... More

We went to the hotel as a large group of 30 people including kids ranging from 18 to 8. The setting was perfect with sea facing rooms and great company. Our room was extremely small but it was one we close as it was clear to the group. It has a damp musty smell which could be because of the... More

We (family of four) stayed for 9 nights including Christmas Day. Solid, old-style South African family hotel which couldn't be closer to the crashing waves. Attentive, friendly hosts and well-trained and charming waitrons in the bar and restaurant. Well-judged five-course table d'hote menus for most lunches and suppers, and braais and buffets every second day. We hiked the delightful six... More

The Kob Inn Beach Resort is a charming getaway destination with exquisite coastal scenery. The Resort’s service was top notch and the waiters made a noticeable effort to ensure your stay was pleasant. Three meals were served daily (breakfast, light lunch and supper). Each meal provided a variety of options and the quality could not be faulted. Meals were served... More

Comfortable sea facing room. Three meals a day included in the price. The food was tasty and well presented. The staff especially in the bar and restaurant offered exceptional service. The location is out of this world. \We did some beautiful hikes from the hotel. The beaches are unspoilt and uncrowded!

This place seems very popular with families seemingly coming year after year so maybe I'm not the target market & I think those who love this place will keep going. But here is my take. The positives? Its a beautiful setting, the people who run the place are generally kind, the food was OK to good, the prices of drinks... More
