Great facilities and good standard of cleanliness with both the inside and outside areas. Visited the local restaurant very close by and had a lovely meal there. The only down side was the... More

Receptionist (Chantal) was absolutely helpful and friendly. Brenton on sea is an amazing place and I would recommend the place to all my family and friends. It has a wonderful view and is perfect for the quiet getaway.

The fast internet connection was a luxury. Brenton on Sea is the safest place to be. Near the lovely beach and the restaurants. There are spingboks, guinea fowls and the... More

Really comfortable and homely. Would have liked a fireplace inside, but otherwise great. Rooms were very nice and bathrooms adequate. The kitchen had all the utensils I needed. DSTV channels were perfect.

The cottage worked perfectly for our family of six. The appliances, TV channels, daily servicing, nice view and great access to a beautiful beach were some of the things we enjoyed.
