My husband and I stayed at the Boathouse for a night while driving from Pietermaritzburg to St. Lucia. The staff was very kind and helpful and we had a wonderful view. We kept the patio doors open and listened to the sea, which was fantastic! The location is unbeatable and there are restaurants and pubs in walking distance. The breakfast was delicious, and the main areas of the hotel are lovely. My only complaint is the room quality. I think that for the same price or a bit higher, it is possible to stay in more updated places in Ballito. I was disappointed that our romantic evening by the sea was met with heavily stained carpeting and an almost digustingly stained duvet. The bathroom was very small and the tiling and grout was very discolored. It seems that the hotel is making some updates, but had I seen the room before we booked, we probably would've chosen a different guesthouse.
