i liked this place very much, the owners are hospitable, friendly and nice. The rooms are clean and tidy. I loved the white linen and the colour of paint in the rooms. MMMMM breakfast is yummy. the established is next to the public road makes it easy to find. The swimming pool was too cold I could not swim.

Had a very pleasant welcome from them, rooms were clean, but very small. For the price we paid we did expect a little bit more space. Nothing wrong - just average. Very close proximity to all major attractions - airport, beach and casino.

Our family stayed at La Mer Guesthouse in two rooms during this year's Iron Man. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully clean and well maintained. The sparkling white and blue colour scheme has a great seaside feel about it. What impressed us most was the friendliness and helpfulness of everyone. The location was very convenient - out of the bustle...

We were a group of 9 adults and 8 children, Suzaan and her staff were excellent and accommodating at all times. The rooms were busy being redone as they had just taken over in January 2017. It felt like a home away from home. The rooms are spacious and clean. Perfect setting for groups, couples, family, business or solo. All...

Perfect for Ironman athletes. Suzaan and her husband made our stay very pleasurable. They are new owners and are really paying attention to people's needs and making some really good updates as new owners. Will stay again.

We're a family of 4 who stayed for just one night at the end of our holiday. We were given a smaller room than expected, tiny at the back of the lodge with 2 bunk beds. At the time of booking it was said "only 2 rooms left", however the rest of the lodge was empty with no other guests....

Thank you for you review, the room that you booked is exactly how it is been advertised on the web, with a very low price for a specific marked excluding Breakfast. The rest of our upmarket rooms are more than double the price and we wouldn't mined to let guests upgrade at any time if requested. We're not aware that...

It was a great holiday accommodation, close to amenities and close to where we needed to be for the swimming gala. Friendly staff. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool. The only thing that did not suit us, was that we could not enjoy the breakfast as we needed to leave early in the morning to the swimming gala.

This is a small guest house with really great staff. The rooms are rather large with sophas reading materials and kitchenette. Own varandah and views over the mountains. Nice swimming pool for the warmer days. Very good breakfast but no beacon or cold meats available ... that and the fact that our bathroom only had a shower and no mirror...
