This really is a great place to stay. The welcome from Isabel and her staff cannot be faulted - warm and friendly. Advice on where to eat; the offer to make dinner reservations; suggestions on where to go and what to see. We had a mountain view room at the back, which was good for us - being interested in wildlife, there were lots of birds flitting about between the gardens and along the road at the back. Despite the road back and front, the location is very quiet and, as others have reported, very close to Grotto beach - a great introduction to the potential for beach-combing in South Africa. Our room was lovely, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Breakfast included a range of fresh fruit, cereals and cooked items. The annex and the main building are equally good, and each with lounges on the upper floor with books, telescope for looking out to sea and so on. Although there is no wi-fi in the annex, it really is no problem to go over to the lounge in the main building and connect to the free wi-fi there. The lounge in the main building has a bar, where you help yourself and add what you have had to an "honesty sheet". And there is an honesty bar in the room and a chocolate on your turned down bed in the evening. Fantastic - just go.
