We visited this hotel on what has to be one of the busiest weekends - Ironman SA, so had no great expectations but we couldnt have been more wrong! The Beach Hotel has without doubt The friendliest and most helpful staff of any hotel we have ever stayed. This started from the minute we arrived with a handshake from the Porter to every single member of staff, whether they were serving in one of the restaurants, cleaning the room or simply passing by in the passage - very impressive! The rooms are well...hotel rooms, but spotlessly clean and in our case thankfully not sea-facing but nicely tucked away in a courtyard, otherwise we wouldnt have got any peace with the festivities taking place on the beachfront. The bufet breakfasts were extremly good and we ate in the hotel restaurant Ginger both nights. The wine selection is good, the steaks were sublime, the calamari could be spiced up a bit more, the Lamb shanks succulent and once again suberb service - what more could one want!
