“The most funky place in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is a design jewel. The old infrastructure has been renovated to perfection with urban street style elements (not overdone). Though the renovation took place a few years in the past everything looks like brand new. Tayrene, the hotel manager, and her team take great care of this place and she will try everything to assist you with restaurant recommendations, bookings or whatever need you might have. Such dedication and customer orientation is hard to find these days.

We can recommend this place without any hesitation. Tayrene, thanks for great two days and keep up your great service!

My boyfriend and I spent a romantic weekend at Funky Town. The service was exceptional- the staff are helpful, friendly and accommodating and ensured that we had an excellent experience. We were able to dine out in Jeffery's Bay, as well as cook our own meals in the spotless communal kitchen. In the latter case, we were relieved of dish washing duties by provision of a dishwasher (who wants to do chores on vacation?). More notably, our stay at Funky Town was aesthetically pleasing. There are various pop artworks which can be viewed on Funky Town's walls, inviting one to enter a world of artistic splendour. Each room in Funky Town seems to have a unique theme, with fresh decor and vibrant colour coding. Furthermore, we were able to relax in the clean and steamy jaccuzzi with our friends after a long day of surfing and exploring Jbay. Funky Town is set in an ideal and central area - close to the beach, take out places, restaurants and many factory shops. Thank you Funky Town, we hope to return soon! Chanel & Nathan

We had a wonderful experience at Funky Town. The property manager was extremely nice and helpful. We spent the night before our wedding here, and were upgraded to an awesome penthouse suite and spoiled with a complimentary bottle of champagne at a nearby restaurant, where the owner called ahead and had a bottle waiting on us. The place is adorable! Very trendy and comfortable, with the beach and nearby restaurants within walking distance. We would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone traveling to Jeffrey's Bay!

Hope to visit again.
I also received a great response when I realised I may have left an item at the hotel.
The item was found and arrangements made to forward the item onto me.
There was a real personal touch.

I have stayed at FunkyTown 3 times already this year and will continue to return again and again! I have stayed in two separate double rooms - both were furnished with modern touches and such comfortable beds, and one downstairs had a huge bath tub and shower. This time we were lucky enough to stay in the Penthouse Suite, complete with fully-equipped kitchen and large living area with a dining table big enough for all 8 of us to sit and eat comfortable. The garden area is beautiful, with a jacuzzi, swimming pool and braai area and a lovely large lawn perfect for sunbathing! The location is perfect for walking to the beach, restaurants, shops and bars. However the best thing about FunkyTown is the host, Tayrene, who always goes above and beyond to help you and make sure you have everything you need. We will be back again!

What a beautiful find. Its such awesome concept, and I loved the trendy decor. Having access to a kitchen and braai area with a plunge pool and jacuzzi gives you the option to stay in. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
