The reception area looked like a make shift with old equipment hidden behind it and a curtain hidding more of a mess in that room. We were taken to our rooms and what a horror it was. A shack with holes beneath the structure. The linen, pots and utensils very old and low qualily. The bathroom was embarrasing. This family... More

Found this place as we were diverted on our tour of SA, and what a find it was! Stunning location near the beach, fabulous rooms with a 4 poster bed! Would loved to have stayed longer, and so will return! Great bar next door that served stunning food was a bonus.. Highly recommended!!!

Friendly, helpful staff. Nice restaurant and bar on the property. Rooms are outdated and need upgrade soon. Not extremely clean. Pool did not look appealing either. Town is also not worth a visit. Beaches are full of broken glass after a weekend.

The garden is well kept, the house is clean. Oly minus: the fridge is finished, it should be replaced, it doesn't even close... More

We spent 1 night at the Outspan Inn. I was travelling with my dad & we each had separate rooms. Both rooms were clean, comfortable & spacious. We couldn't get the free wifi in our rooms but sat in the lounge & accessed it. The owner, Kathryn, was delightful, very friendly & really helpful. We ate dinner & breakfast at... More

Based on ratings received here on TA we decided to stay here. We had the rustic 2 bedroom cottage which was built at the turn of the previous century. It is very rustic with a certain charm you would expect, but it included a full kitchen with separate bathroom with shower.

My husband and I spent our first night of our Honeymoon at Outspan Inn and it was well worth it! Kathryn and her team made it very special for us. We arrived a bit late but the friendly receptionist helped us check in and showed us to our room and Steve's restaurant on the property. Dinner, lunch or breakfast at... More

We made a last minute booking with our family of to stay at Outspan Inn between Xmas and New Year. Kathryn Costello was extremely helpful and fitted us into the cottage next to the pool. She warned methat the cottage was her most basic accommodation as the rest of Outspan was full. She was right, it was basic, but it... More
