    Hotel well located, clean and new. Positioned in front of the ocean you can enjoy a great view at sunrise with the sunrise. The hotel reception is located on the first floor and not very well signposted! The hotel is overall recommended and well-priced

    Very basic (budget) hotel, but excellent service & attitude amongst all staff (reception, housekeeping, & most certainly breakfast/dining room staff). Very much in keeping with (nay exceeding) the IHG hospitality standards.

    Hi. There are shuttles to and from the airport, which charge R50. The shuttles also go to the city centre and surrounding hotels - the cost is the same.
