“Fabulous guest house in a wonderful setting.”
Reviewed February 13, 2010

This small guest house is like staying in your own luxuriosly appointed home. Everything is immaculate and nothing is too much trouble for the new manager. The beach and lagoon are within walking distance as are a range of small restaurants and shops. The area is absolutely safe and walking back at night is no problem. There is a nature reserve very close by with opportunities for walking, bird watching and wild life spotting. We also stayed here in August when the wild flower display was stunning. If you are just wanting to relax there are loungers or sofas from which to soak up the sun and admire the spectacular views.

I was anxious to see what At the Rocks had to offer us after reading some of the reviews. However, we were more than pleasantly surprised. The innkeeper was all business until I cracked a few jokes and she realized that she could relax around us. After that, she went out of her way to make sure we had any information we needed, extra towels, entertainment, etc. She recommended some great local eats (as requested) and breakfast was quite filling.

My favourite part was the view of Langebaan from the jacuzzi tub (complete with bubble bath). I was able to see the ocean, the beach and the turtles sunning themselves on The Rock in the nature preserve just behind At The Rocks.

We were not on top of the beaches, but it was walkable, if we wanted to. At least for a stroll.

The bathroom was very luxurious. I agree that the shampoo was a bit cheap, but I didn't stay there for the toiletries...the views more than made up for it.

I would go back again.

We chose this hotel because of the beautiful photos and the description of luxury. It all looks stunning when you come in. we had one of the biggest rooms booked, expecting a pampering romantic getaway.

For me luxury comes with friendliness and service, which this placed had none of. The manager seemed to work there unwillingly, only to be reached by mobile phone. Never around when you want to ask something about what there is to do or where to eat. A guest should simply use the book that is lying around in the living room. No references included, just brochures!

The bathrooms are indeed stunning, but expect that they will be cheap on shampoo. The breakfast was poor and a friendly good morning was nowhere to be heard.
This place is definitely overpriced, because a good looking façade doesn't make up for unfriendly personnel. But I guess if you want to be left alone and don't want to learn anything about the place you are visiting, this is the place to be.
