What a stunning hotel. The renovation was totally sympathetic to the history of the building. Gorgeous décor, extremely well appointed rooms, wonderful staff, glorious gardens and a stone's throw from the beach. Excellent food. What more could a person wish for on holiday?

About
Description
This heritage building dates back to 1777 and was later used as a rectory by the Anglican church until the present rectory was built in 1939. The beautiful building has now being returned to it’s former glory ...More and is the focal point of this boutique hotel. The old school building, which has historically been a church and even a blacksmith’s workshop has also being lovingly restored and is the home of the spa. Just metres from the beach in a quiet cul-de-sac, it’s position gives you perfect access to one of South Africa’s most picturesque and naturally beautiful seaside towns. Less
