“Affordable luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Welcomed by Linda and Neville, our family was made to feel at home. We loved the spacious rooms, beautifully furnished, helpful and cheerful staff, and delicious breakfasts. Highly recommended. 5 minute walk to the beach and short drive to kenton.

Room Tip: Any one of the three rooms is good.

For many years we used to go to Bushman's River mouth (Boesmansriviermond) to a family owned property, on a regular basis. Bushman's is an idyllic seaside location in the Eastern Cape, with a stunning 5 km sandy beach and rocky river-mouth.We went back this year in May and stayed at the Fat Fish B&B. We fell in love with the place the minute we arrived and were welcomed by the lovely hosts, Linda and Neville and their friendly little Jack Russel, Skwiza!
As we have arrived late, they assisted us in getting a late dinner booking at one of the local restaurants (already more than one would expect from your hosts!) The evening turned out to be a wonderful experience as was the rest of our time. The tasteful decor and care for detail were some of our favorite characteristics of this B&B! It is walking distance from the river and the beach. It met all our expectations and more.
Breakfast was a delight! We can sincerely recommend this as a short or long term holiday destination to everybody.

Tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac, is this absolutely wonderful B&B. Everything is so immaculately appointed, with such exceptional care to detail, that one feels as though you have entered an oasis, away from the maddening traffic and chaos of city life.
Neville (Linda was away when we visited) is an exceptional host, greeting us personally on arrival.
The breakfast was superb and our only regret was that we didn't have any extra days just to stay longer.

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortably appointed. We occupied two of the three rooms on offer, and both were...
