We stayed here during our honeymoon for a weekend and it was incredible. The staff were so helpful and kind. The view from our bedroom was amazing - just miles of sand and the mountains in the background. It's very peaceful and a proper break from everyday life. Only about an hour from Cape Town, everyone needs to stay in...

Idyllic location right on the beach. Breakfast (delicious) was spent watching the surfers riding the waves. Nothing was too much trouble for the kind, helpful staff. Bedroom was well appointed, very comfortable and light and airy. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.

This is a wonderful, boutique hotel situated adjacent to the beach, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, in a little town not far from Cape Town called Kommentjie. The accommodation is superb, with large suites beautifully furnished and decorated, each with a stunning view. There is also a lovely pool. The waves crash in ceaselessly onto a beach of beautiful white sand....

I took a solo trip to SA from the US for my birthday. I wanted high quality and I got it. Every employee was so helpful. My only complaint is that parking was difficult. But everything else was perfect. The beach, the room, everything. I will be back.

What a gem! My girlfriend and I had spend a romanic night, celebrating my birthday. This place is Cape Town's best kept secret and best of all we did not have to take a long haul flight to find such a perfect piece of beach. Thanks to Ester for baking me a chocolate cake and to Fanie for making sure...

We had three nights, in a sea-view room with balcony. The room was spacious, light and well furnished. The staff could not have been more friendly, and helpful. The view over the beach, bay and then the mountains leading to Table Mountain is spectacular. We enjoyed the high quality private dining on one evening, and also the "free" mini bar...
