We stayed at the Views in January as our last staging post before pushing onto Cape Town during our tour of the garden Route. We got a warm welcome upon arrival and were swiftly shown to the deluxe and premier sea view rooms we booked. Wow, is all I can say, the hotel called the Views has, well the views. The room we stayed in had a large floor to ceiling glass window that covered the length of the room, and it allowed you to take in the breathtaking scenery the the Wilderness coastline had to offer. Just spectacular. The room itself had a studio feel about it, and we loved the walk-in shower, and white clean lines which gave it a very modern contemporary feel. I tried out the spa and gym during the day and was impressed with the facilities, although the jacuzzi could have been a bit warmer.
The only slight negative for this hotel is to get the 'views' the hotel is situated high atop a cliff edge, thus the elderly or infirm may struggle to get down to the beach if they so wanted to down the 100+ or so steps to it. Also the hotel cant control this, but it annoyed none-the-less, and is surely an accident waiting to happen. But you have these para-glider people continuously floating past your window every 30 secs or so during the day going up and down the beach, which was quite cool at first, but eventually started to grate. Some of them also got very CLOSE to our balcony almost to the point crashing into it, but certainly invading our privacy, and definitely killing off any chance of a bit of intimacy with my partner if you get what I mean. ;)
