We stayed over for 2 nights on the recent special which is about R3000 for 2 night for 2 people. I can echo what some of the other reviewers said, at this price it is excellent value for money but at the standard price it may fall short. The rooms are okay but fairly standard. The view more than makes up for any niggly things in the room however and watching the sun set from the patio is a treat. The restaurant tries hard and the food is good. I had a bit of a chuckle reading another review because the too salty fishcakes are unfortunately still on the menu. The ribs are great though and my husband had it twice. The staff makes up for any inexperience with generous friendliness.
The one thing that needs attention is the squeky room doors. Whenever one of the neighbours came or went it sounded like a dying camel and it was impossible to sleep through.
