Canelands has a truly incredible position, slap bang on the beach. It has all that you would expect from what I would describe as a 'small boutique hotel'. We were in Rm 2(LHS entrance upstairs); huge bed, huge bathroom, huge balcony, all very good. Staff are very welcoming and highly attentive, checking if you would like a drink etc. We... More

This small hotel used to be two modern houses built right on the beach at Salt Rock. They knocked through on the ground floor so there are two different stairs to the bedroom. We had the large front bedroom with a massive balcony. Costly but worth it for the views and listening to the ocean. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking... More

Had my anniversary at canelands on the 11th july 2015. What a lovely place with breath taking viwes. The weather and vibe was to dye for. Not forgetting Kathy and the lovely staff. Hope canelands sends me a complementary stay over the weekend soon.

Spa treatments outside on the patio while watching the dolphins and even whales frolicking in the water. Followed by an amazing dinner next to the pool. You don't get closer to the ocean than this. The service was great and the staff super friendly and accommodating to all our requests. What a wonderful way to spend the day with my... More

Firstly there are 2 aircon units just out side our room on the balcony which are noisy. Our tv wasnt working when we arrived. The balcony is a mess with pipes and dirt. The parking is not well organised. There are cigarette butts all over the lawn facing the beach. The food is over priced and not well executed...I.e. not... More

Dear Guest Thanks for taking the time to write about our beautiful property.

We did remove the television and replace it immediately with another television as not to compromise you and then offered you... More

This is beautiful hotel and I've never seen more beautiful views! The room was very nice and I'm glad we booked a room with Seaview because the other side is mostly parking lot. The service was good but I must say I've had better service in South Africa. They charged us for cappuccino at the breakfast which I think is... More

Attended a family wedding at the Canelands hotel this past weekend. I can't comment on the value as the accommodation was graciously attended to by the bridal couple, but the hotel itself is in a prime location on the beach, with a beautiful long lap pool and nice rooms. Lovely finishes and a great restaurant that we enjoyed really good... More
