“Great stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I managed to secure a great price for a two day stay including breakfast for three of us including my 2 year old son At the Robertson's. When we arrived at the B&B and we where warmly greated by Sue and shown to our room. The property is beautifully kept and all facilities catered for. Sue is unbelievable accomodating and made our stay extremely pleasurable! Our little boy really loved the cat and dog that was around to entertain him too, LOL. A scrumptious breakfast is served outside on the pation in the morning with views of the coast. The patio and pool area is a perfect place to relax, read a book and just recharge. If you are in this area and you are tired of impersonal hotel's, this is a great place to sprend some time and I know that Sue and Darryll is sure to take care of you!!

Room Tip: If you have kids, ask for the family room, Sue suggested it and It worked out great!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

We stayed "At the Robertsons" for a week starting 11 - 18 August 2012. Getting there was 1 hour by the Airport taxi service.

Sue and Darryl were gracious, friendly hosts and never hesitated to go out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Service was always delivered with a smile.

The room we stayed in was extremely comfortable with a magnificent sea view. Our diving excursions were well planned by Sue and there was never an inconvenient or uncomfortable moment throughout our stay.

We most certainly will stay "at the Robertsons" again and recommend this B+B to anyone wishing to stay in Umkomaas.

Sue was just an amazing host! Troughout the entire stay, it felt like I was at home. There were no awkward tip-toeing around the house and the room we stayed at was great! However I must truly say that it was Sue and Darryl's hospitality and kindness that really topped the place off.

We were in S Africa for the worldcup, and thought it be worthwhile to take a detour and dive at KwaZulu-Natal. Being avid divers themselves Sue and Darryl were full of information. They help us pick a local outfit that best fit our needs, made sure we woke up on time for the dive, prepared an appropriate amt of food for us in the AM, and even brought us there (for non-divers this is around 530AM) and picked us up after the dive. It was just amazing! We also met Sue's daughters and grandkids, who are absolutely adorable. It truly felt like home.

As for the venue itself, we stayed in the room upstairs, where we had our own private balcony that boast a lovely view of the ocean. Sunlight filled the room, and it felt serene. It was clean, fresh, and nicely heated. The bathroom was very roomy, and it had a separate bath tub.

The backyard is adorable and hosts a great view of the ocean as well. Though I would have loved to take a dip in the pool it was winter and too cold, but all in all the landscaping was tastefully decorated and definitely a great place to enjoy your breakfast/lunch.
