This is by far the worst B&B I have ever stayed in. Everything seemed to be too much effort. Upon arriving, one of my questions was what the wifi code was. As an answer I got a cranky "Look in the map". Breakfast is served between 6:30 and 8:30. When you're on vacation, who wants to have breakfast at 6:30?... More

At they same time it... More

I am a regular visitor who grew attached to The Sandcastle, the view from the 3rd floor, its people and the Bloubergstrand beach.

I have been staying there a few times over the past few years and never had any complaints. I have stayed at some other bed and breakfasts in the country, that was the same star-rated, but not close in any of the above ratings. I will definetly stay at Sandcaste B&B again

The place is a street back from the beachfront in the idyllic village of Melkbos, and despite having directions from them I found the place hard to find as it is not very well marked. Parking is outside on the pavement, and I was greeted the owners who introduced... More
