Beautiful setting, hotel seemed under prepared for the amount of people from our conference and another function that was happening at the same time; not enough crockery and cutlery and refreshments were late.

The Great Location of the hotel coupled with the exceptional service from the staff makes this one of the best hotels to stay in along the coast. the peace and tranquility you get from the scenery around when looking outside through the balcony is to die for. Wow!!

Right on the water with a super view of the canals. This place is a real treat. In the middle of port Alfred it is a quiet place to recharge and relax. The food in the restaurant is lovely and the breakfast is sumptuous. The rooms are well decorated and the history of the ship wrecks is fascinating

Good value with a wonderful breakfast selection. The decor is a bit dated but the bed is comfie. Spectacular view and plenty of bird life. Please enquire about the dinner specials as this is not advertised.

The reception and check in was efficient. Unfortunately no welcome drink. The room is a nice size and the bed comfortable. Decor is dated and carpets shabby. Wifi is limited to 50mb however I was unable to connect so it was useless! The spa is really good with wonderful ladies ready to pamper you at a very reasonable fee. Breakfast... More

I was most impressed with the staff at breakfast who assisted with a take-away egg and bacon sandwich for my husband who was feeling unwell and couldn't come down to the dining room. They even filled our flask for us so that he could have coffee enroute!
