Great conference facility and friendly, organised staff. Recently made use of the conference facility at Outspann Inn for a public meeting. It had all the necessary facilities and friendly, helpful staff.

Its an old self catering and b&b establishment which doesn't seem to be very busy. Very handy to steve's bar and restaurant right next door for dinner, also where you get the included breakfast. The furniture, decor etc are all old and tired which would be ok but frankly it's just plain dirty....the rooms and bathrooms. The staff are lovely...

The reception area looked like a make shift with old equipment hidden behind it and a curtain hidding more of a mess in that room. We were taken to our rooms and what a horror it was. A shack with holes beneath the structure. The linen, pots and utensils very old and low qualily. The bathroom was embarrasing. This family...

Found this place as we were diverted on our tour of SA, and what a find it was! Stunning location near the beach, fabulous rooms with a 4 poster bed! Would loved to have stayed longer, and so will return! Great bar next door that served stunning food was a bonus.. Highly recommended!!!

Friendly, helpful staff. Nice restaurant and bar on the property. Rooms are outdated and need upgrade soon. Not extremely clean. Pool did not look appealing either. Town is also not worth a visit. Beaches are full of broken glass after a weekend.

We stayed 2 nights with 2 adults and 3 childeren in one of the old sink houses in the back garden. This is very basic accommodation,(so is the price also) but we did like it a lot. The garden is well kept, the house is clean. Oly minus: the fridge is finished, it should be replaced, it doesn't even close...
