My wife and i stayed for three nights in September,as part of our first visit to South Africa. We were welcomed by a friendly car park attendant and receptionist. We had a room with a sizeable balcony at the back of the hotel. In hindsight we should have asked for a sea facing room from which we could have observed the whales.The hotel is often referred to as the 'Old Lady'. this is reflected in the heating pipework and other aspects of the hotel's infrastructure. All of the hotel staff, especially Heather Inggs were courteous and helpful. The breakfast and one evening meal we had were excellent. The lady in the travel shop was very helpful and knowledgeable.The hotel was a good base for watching whales,.
