“A gem !”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Stayed for 4 nights with family. VERY friendly staff! Easy access to beach across the road. Breakfast was good. Had their buffet dinner which was a bit pricey but delicious. Rooms were big and comfortable. Thanks to George and Jackie for being so helpful and friendly. I am sure you will see us again!!

we stayed at the Humewood hotel for a night. the atmosphere was warm and friendly and the breakfast and dinner outstanding. the staff were extremely friendly, especially Jacky and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel manager can be very proud of his staff and his hands on approach was great! the rooms were large, the towels soft and fluffy and the beds very comfortable with a lovely view of the ocean.
the location was great and close to the beach and boardwalk complex. it is not too far from the airport and Walmer.
i will definitely stay there again!

A small, very friendly hotel, with a great food selection, and very obliging staff. Our 3rd visit & it won't be the last. The SAGA group no longer dominate as it is not in their brochure any more (More fool them for dropping it). I cannot understand "Gadmans" review, as the Hotel does not have room service!. Agreed it could do with a spruce up, but this does not detract from our enjoyment. If I was to be over critical, the fact that the main road runs past the hotel does make sitting on the terrace noisy at times, but this is compensated by the fact the excellent beach is only about 200 yards from the hotel entrance. I can certainly agree with everything that has been said about Jackie. Nothing was too much trouble. Roll on 2013.

Room Tip: Any with a sea view.

The Humewood has seen better days, but is still popular with group tour operators--the Saga group seemed to dominate the place. We only stayed one night, and didn't have any major complaints--except for the room service waiter berating my wife because he thought she'd stolen a spoon!
There are plenty of other better hotels along this beachfront strip, so don't let a package agent slip this one in on your South Africa tour.

The staff was very friendly here, especially Jackie! No trouble was too much for her.
The hotel is a bit outdated though, but the location and Jackie compensated more than enough for this.
We sure like to come back again
