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

I have stayed at Kob inn 6 days a month for the last 5 months, and every time the hospitality and service is outstanding, from bottom to top staff and management, the food menu varies from day to day which leaves you a surprise of what to expect, when leaving the restaurant you leave with a complete satisfaction. I am... More

We have just spent a most enjoyable visit to this resort after having been recommended to do so by friends who go often. The main roads through the Transkei have been vastly improved as to how I remember them and although the few kilometres to the resort on a dirt road is not too clever, the end result is infinitely...

We just spent 8 nights at this lovely family hotel. You instantly feel at home. Good value for money, excellent service, delicious meals (especially the seafood buffet), breathtaking location, something to do for young and old. Over the years my wife and I stayed at 6 different Wild Coast hotels. Which is the best? Difficult to say, each hotel has... More
