I spent the weekend at the Salt Rock Hotel in Salt Rock on the North Coast. This hotel has been in operation for many years as I recall my previous visit, with fond memories as well, being more than 22 years ago. It is obvious that the decor has not kept up with modern trends and the place still smells... More

This is our second visit to this hotel and we had another great holiday. The food is excellent and of a great variety and is included in your stay, breakfast and dinner, lunch and drinks are extra.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and was impressed, especially with the location and view. Although the hotel is now pretty dated, there are improvements happening. We stayed in one of the updated deluxe rooms and it was very good, bright and new. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location on the beach with all sea... More

We have been coming to this hotel for many years and although we keep thinking we should go somewhere else next time we want a beach holiday we keep returning to the Salt Rock. There is no hotel so perfectly located - literally on the beach - and even in season is very well priced particularly when you take advantage... More

this place was a blight on our south african holiday. The location is fantastic but the hotel is really jaded and is desperately seeking repairs alongwith a professional management.The apparently newly renovated rooms had tiles to remind you of a hospital on the floor.The power kept tripping and was rectified after a few hours only. The tv and ac remotes... More

This is our fifth stay and everything is reassuringly the same. This is a great little family hotel with all you need for a comfortable stay. Location is unbeatable with beach and ocean pool plus big hotel pool. Our main thing is that the kids simply love being here!

This is a great resort for anyone looking to take time out in a relaxed atmosphere - right on the beachfront. The location of the hotel is ideal, with Salt Rock Beach just a two minute walk from hotel (or a 30 second drive.) The hotel itself is wonderful, with great wooden and African décor in the lounge and dining... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is just on the beach, has great views from the balconies and a lovely tidal pool on the beach. The rooms however leave a lot to be desired, we had ants in our room and several calls to the reception to help were unattended. Finally after two trips, someone attended and tried to... More

This was our second two week stay at this fabulous hotel and it keeps getting better with time even though the service, food, staff etc are already top notch. The chefs went the extra mile to cater for my vegetarian diet (even enquiring as to what my likes are), the food was absolutely superb with lots of choices, the ladies... More
