We were fortunate enough to stay at On The Beach Guesthouse for a work trip and boy, the name of the guest house is quite apt. We stayed in the Luxury Rooms and they are very comfortable with great views of the ocean. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious enough. Breakfast was excellent (not sure if it was because of the great view you have while enjoying the breakfast). The staff were always very friendly and helpful and the communal facilities are of an excellent standard. The rate might be on the high side but in this case you definitely get what you pay for!

Room Tip: It is worth paying the extra for the luxury rooms!

Excellent room with a view of the sea. The room was spacious and a great bed.Waves to send you to sleep. Business trip but this place made relaxing easy afterwards.
Breakfast special of eggs Benedict was out of this world.
Not sure if work would pay the rate again but is worth it for a holiday.

Lovely guesthouse - although a little hard to find in the middle of a suburb. However, beachfront location and beachfront room made up for the time wasted. Stayed in the Starfish Suite - literally walk out of room down a sand dune and onto the beach. Rooms spacious and views wonderful. Would definitely return.

Although we had emailed and our daughter had telephoned, they were not expecting us when we turned up on Sunday 14th April. However, Visu came to the rescue, welcomed us and allocated us the Whale Room with a view of the beach and patio doors onto the deck area. Very well appointed room, extremely comfortable bed and great to wake up to sunshine and watch people surfing before breakfast! An extremely good breakfast was served on the first floor with views all along the beach. A great start to our trip along the Gardens Route to Cape Town.

We stayed here for one night in a downstairs beachfront room at a total cost of R1500. Our room had the most bizarre design I have ever experienced where the bath, toilet, shower and sinks are all open as part of the main room and are strangely at the front of the room by the windows onto the beach. The showers flood the shiny tiled floor making it precarious to walk around, there are strangely two separate showers next to each other but one sink and the lack of privacy for the toilet needs a very open mind. The room also had a strong smell of damp. On a positive note however, the location is excellent, the view from the breakfast area is absolutely stunning and breakfast itself was fine. We didn't get a chance to see the upstairs rooms which may have been better.

Dear Guest,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to review your stay at On the Beach Guesthouse. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed our hospitality, facilities and services, the ambience and the location of our guesthouse.

We do have other rooms and suites that you might prefer to the Oyster Honeymoon Suite that you stayed in, we have taken your thoughts on the layout of the room into consideration and will look into the problem.

The entire team at On the Beach Guesthouse is looking forward to welcoming you back very soon.

We were fortunate enough to use TripAdvisor and land up here. The view onto a perfect seaside garden , onto the beach and the sea beyond made all the difference. So the penthouse suite has the best view and accommodation. The only problem was the smell from the toilet. The problem has obviously been looked at but the problem was not fixed. The space, the furnishing and the cleanliness all added to a great experience. Even better was the barbecue room at the bottom overlooking the sea. We had a few exceptional evenings drinking good South African red wine and eating great food whilst taking in the glorious sea views. The eggs Benedict for breakfast is a must. The owner is a great lady who understands hospitality and client relations. The chief/ male waiter was well trained. I would personally recommend that this establishment push for a 5* rating

Room Tip: Take The Penthouse Suite
