Unfortunately we did not enjoy our stay here at all, the rooms are not clean, there are stray dogs and cats all over the furniture even in the kitchen on the worktops and tables where you're supposed to eat. Not to mention the loud music til all hours every single night. The owner Karl chased us down and accused us of trying to run away without paying the bill even though all our stuff was still in the room and we were just going out for the day. After speaking to many of the locals it turns out Karl seems to have upset a lot of people in Coffee Bay, mainly the locals and his ex staff which is why the staff turnover at Bomvu is so high. He uses his position within the community to exploit the locals to his advantage and we will not be staying here ever again thanks to him. Much nicer places in Coffee Bay to stay!
