I do believe it is time for Arniston Hotel to improve the look for the floor in open areas to large light tiles, the brown tiles have never given n clean feel. Also during our visit in 2016 we thought the food was lacking really good taste and during our last visit it sadly tasted very much the same still with the prawns even still having some poop in them with absolutely no flavour. The beds and bedding are top class.

Situated in a stunning turquoise bay, the Arniston Spa Hotel is a real getaway retreat. The staff are wonderful, and the hotel has an ease about it that makes it flow with peace. Strongly recommended if you want to get off the everyday treadmill and restore mind and body.

This hotel is lovely. Nice staff and a great location. The facility is a little tired but very clean. Buffet breakfast is second to none. Warm water at the small beach across the road and a couple of beautiful beaches close by.

Excellent hotel from poison close to the beach, facilities offered from bikes for kids to towels for the beach, to excellent food and helpful staff. It was a busy period and still good service. Sushi was excellent and the cheese board the best we have had in a while.

Arniston is well known as a small fishing village with a warm and turquoise ocean. The area is so impressive in terms of how the ‘ new South Africa ‘ has become one. It’s the first sea side resort I’ve been to where people of all colours are swimming, eating and living together. There are no electric fences and high walls anywhere. The hotel symbolizes the town perfectly. The service is impressive, rooms very spacious and the food is excellent. The bistro is equally good although the service could improve a little. As for the spa it’s more than fine without blowing one away. The only negative is to pay for a sauna if you are not having a treatment. Who needs Mauritius when this jewel is on our doorstep!

Room tip: Choose a sea facing room
