This is a stunning B&B that serves as a great base to explore the surrounding area. Inge was a wonderful host, going out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had all we needed. I took her advice and walked the trail to the picturesque harbour and back- worth having your binoculars, camera and good walking shoes to make this worthwhile as there are places you have to navigate over the rocks. It is wonderful to have a place that women can walk a trail safely.

The breakfasts served by Inge were delicious and the room has a well stocked bar fridge which is also handy to keep ones own snacks cold.

The beds are so comfortable and we had a really relaxed stay.

If you are looking for a quiet, immaculate and very comfortable B&B in St Francis Bay this is the one. Delicious breakfast, lovely big bed, bathrobes and slippers...what more could you want? Quite far from village

We stayed here for one night here on our tour from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. Staying at this B & B was a really pleasurable experience. It is located adjacent to a coastal path and nearby beach, and is a modern house with all facilities. Our room was spacious and well appointed. Our hosts were knowledgeable about all local facilities and also recommended a really good restaurant for our evening meal.
The breakfast too was excellent with plenty of choice including a freshly cooked traditional option.
Our welcome was very friendly and this B & B is an excellent place to stay in the lovely village of St Francis Bay - thoroughly recommended!

On-The-Spot is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in. All the suites are exactly the same, and surround the pool area. Inge and her husband were excellent hosts, mines of information, and the service was superb. What was so nice is that everything you could wish for in a B&B has been thought about, down to the smallest detail. A carafe of sherry to welcome you, an excellently stocked fridge, plus loads of snacks and chocolates for the hungry, to keep you going until dinner. The bathrooms were fresh and spotless, with plenty of towels, and there was a huge bath, plus a separate glass shower. The Queen bed was ideal and there were dressing-gowns and slippers available. There was plenty of space in the room, and the TV had enough channels to keep my husband occupied and in the tub chair in front of it for most of the evening after dinner in town! The breakfast was superb, and all in all we would recommend this B&B as THE place to stay in St Francis Bay. It also has a secure gated parking area, which gives everyone peace of mind. 6****** rating!

Room Tip: They are all the same. The place is quiet too, plus they have blackout curtains to assist sleep for...

On the Spot was the first stop on our SA holiday . Inge and Stephen made us very welcome and were very helpful in providing restaurant advice and places to visit. The breakfasts were freshly cooked and delicious, The bedroom was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well serviced and we could not recommend more highly this place to stay in St Francis Bay.All in all excellant value.

I recently stayed in On the Spot while working in the area. The owners are friendly and the service was really excellent! The house is modern and neatly finished and so are the rooms.

Thank you very much

Kind regards
