We LOVED our stay at the White Shark Guest House. Fantastic rooms, gorgeous property and the owner treated us like family. The proximity to the harbour and shark companies was ideal. And the lounge area provided a fantastic location to relax after our day on the water. I highly recommend this hotel.

Beautiful building, best location possible, the owner couldn't have been nicer, and the room was very comfortable. The common area's were very well kept, i only wish we were staying long enough to make use of them. Very reasonable pricing and is just around the corner from all the Shark Diving shops in the area. You can walk to any... More

The GH is in a perfect location for the early morning shark dives which start at 7am. The owner let us leave all our stuff in the room and come back at 11.30 after the shark dive to shower and check out which was perfect. Fantastic facilities, way more than we would ever use during our 1 night's stay!

Quiet location and it felt we were the only one in the guest house. We decided to upgrade the room to a higher floor. The bathroom had some bugs which we removed and there were some annoying crickets in house. The host was very kind and helpful. Location excellent close to the Shark tour operators for which we came.

We went for a shark cage diving expierence. The ratings given was based on that purpose. Guest house staff could give us details and advice on which company to use. Staff was friendly and accomodated our request to use their facilities after booking out time as we returned from our trip on the ocean after this time. Very quiet town,... More
