Excellent, however no air conditioner in room. Shower was way to small for my big body. Room selection to be checked before travel. Good View Food was a issue, as it was pre arranged for our visit. However enjoyed trip to town.

If you thought you didn't have a reason to visit De Kelders, a stay at The Roundhouse will most certainly change your mind. Throw in the service, the breakfast, the decor, the comfort and the rooftop jacuzzi, and you may find it difficult to come up with a reason to leave. Things you hadn't even thought you might want have...

We stayed at the Albatross Self-catering Cottage alongside the Roundhouse Guesthouse and were pleasantly surprised at the size of the house and rooms, the wifi speed, the great plunge pool and access to the unique rooftop jaccuzi. Kitchen utensils (crockery and cutlery) were too few if one didn't want to wash dishes continuously. Dusting and vaccuming could be done a...

We stayed at the cottage. Although self-catering, cleaning service was provided every day. Breakfast was not included, but could be booked in addition. Good value for money! I would reccomend this hotel to others in any case.

If you are here you are probably doing shark diving and its a great location for that. Room was great, 2 rooms, bedroom and living/kitchenette, and en suite with shower and bath. There is a hot tub and small pool so adults and kids can soak (on different floors), breakfast was nice, served on the top floor. The only downside...

Simple, but neat with everything we could have needed for the night. Friendly staff and comfortable accommodation. Honesty bar and Jacuzzi were a nice plus. Rooms were spacious and even facilities for self catering

We had been there with a group of 11 and booked the 2 cottages (one accross the street and one behind the Roundhouse) and the Cacharias Suite 1 and 2. The Roundhouse is great value for money. We loved the Suite with corner bath but all the other accommodations were also very well presented with luxurious touches. There is a...

This hotel and guest house is very unique and situated just a stones throw from some epic coastline. We were met on arrival by the owner who was very friendly and helped us out with everything we needed to know about the area. I personally stayed in the Abalone Cottage across the road which was very comfortable and spacious with...
