“Morgan Bay Hotel Staff - big ups to them”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

My good mate and I were traveling up the Wildcoast and stayed at the Morgan Bay Hotel. the initial plan was to just over night, but unfortunately my mate got sick and we ended up staying on additional 3 days. I would like to thank the staff (especially Erica) who went over and above the call of duty to look after the two of us. I highly recommend the Morgan Bay Hotel to any travelers.

The Deck restaurant has awesome food, the beach and mountain to walk along, and the sound of the waves to put you to sleep at night.

Many thanks to the good people at Morgan Bay Hotel you guys ROCK and made a tough time bearable.

Best regards

Room Tip: Room no 1, awesome view of beach / mountain and the sound of the waves to send you off to sleep.

We have just returned from our annual holiday break at Morgan Bay Hotel. We have been visiting this hotel every year since 2004, for a 7-day stay in May each year.

Why have we returned to the same place each year for 11 years?

We first discovered the Hotel as part of a hiking group in 2002, and fell in love with it. It was warm, friendly, and spotlessly clean, with wonderful food. In the intervening years its standards have only risen, and we return home each year wonderfully refreshed after our stay there. Jackie and Richard keep a firm hand on running the hotel, and wonderful staff backs them.

The hotel is superbly situated, right on the sea. Morgan Bay is at the lower end of the Wild Coast, and has all that this wonderful stretch of coastline offers. Flat beaches, high cliffs that drop straight into the sea, and scenery that one never tires of, offer all a wonderful holiday.

Will we be back next year? Absolutely; our booking is made before we leave each year. We can offer no higher recommendation.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms are all sea facing, and have a balcony off the room, with a view that is breathta...

Thanks so much for the wonderful kind words of praise, we endeavor to constantly improve and offer better service to our guests. We so enjoyed having you at the hotel, Biscuit (resident Jack Russel) especially enjoyed having you take her for all the wonderful walks in and around Morgan Bay. Sorry we could not be here the whole time but a break for us was also in order while you were here and so glad our team withheld our standards. We so look forward to your return visit next year, you arrived as guests and now leave as friends. Thanks so much again for your patronage. Enjoy the rest of the year and see you soon.

We stayed here as part of the Wild Coast walk experience. The hotel is next to the beach and had wonderful views across the bay.
Rooms and bathrooms pleasantly decorated and comfortable beds. Small balcony area with table and chairs.
Small bar in hotel and larger one next door with outside sitting area. Small shop on site with clothes and gifts.
Food of good standard. Nice sitting areas around the hotel with a pleasant quiet room upstairs.

My daughter and I spent 6 nights at this lovely hotel to have some special time together before her marriage on the Saturday at the hotel. What a joyful experience! We adored the beautiful location and stunning views. The atmosphere at the hotel was relaxed and we felt so comfortable. We had long walks along the beach and were pampered at the Spa. And with the wedding.... everything was perfect - the venue was stunning, the catering was excellent and the service was outstanding. We never had to worry about any aspect! We would not have wanted it at any other place. The staff was always friendly and very helpful. The staff even had a Plan B in order in case the weather was not playing along - luckily Plan B was not necessary. I can honestly recommend Morgan Bay Hotel to anyone, anytime. Thank you so much Morgan Bay Hotel for making the whole experience so special for us. Hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter with a beautiful sea view.

This was our second time at MB hotel, and it was even better than the first time! The staff are friendly, the food great, the beds very comfortable (important if you need sleep!), and the weather played along this year and gave us a lot of time to go on leisurely hikes to the lighthouse and along the coast towards Haga Haga with our children (aged 5&7). They also enjoyed fishing in the rock pools, running in the lagoon water, rolling down the dunes, and searching for crabs at night in torch light. The kids-free dinner was also treat, when Anita took them to watch a dvd. We look forward to our next visit!

We enjoyed 2 nights here. Should have been longer. Really great location, well managed, awesome food. Lots to do in the area. Breathtaking walks. Really worth a hike in the direction of Haga Haga - next town along the coast Will definitely be going back.
