Lots of place to store clothing and luggage. Views from deck lounge and room were amazing. Restaurant was great - specially the buffet breakfast each day Just a bit nosy... More

The accommodation is fairly okay. Restaurant standards are also fair. The sea-food is a bit pricy but top notch. The staff are quite friendly and are always ready to assist. We had a room with a view so we got to experience breathtaking views of the ocean. The only major let down was that part of the bathroom furnishings needed... More

We hunted for accommodation in the Blouberg strand area and used the 4-star rating and Trip Advisor ratings as our guidelines for booking at the hotel. The setting is superb, but the hotel itself is in bad need of a makeover. Rooms are dated and furnishings have seen better days. Service at the restaurant was not up to standard but... More

We loved the concept that although this is a hotel with all standard hotel facilities, including a very good restaurant and bar, the room was self-catering, with well equipped kitchenette (no oven but 4 hot plates and microwave). The rooms were also massive with seperate bedroom, living areas and great balconies. Sea facing rooms have wonderful views of Table Mountain.... More

3 night stay at this fantastic hotel. Opted for sea view room after much deliberation, other alternative was the Cabana and were very happy with our choice. Bonus is that rooms are more like mini apartments, living area and balcony had fantastic views, bedroom was towards back of apartment and backed onto corridor. Beach is easily accessible from the hotel... More
