I booked a stay here for myself along with 10 employees for a business trip. The staff was very accommodating from the time I gave them a ring to hold the rooms a week before we came to the day we left. The hotel itself is nothing special, it is a budget hotel but the location is fantastic, the area...

In the price range you get what you pay for. Friendly staff, and clean rooms. With so many amenities close at hand, you only have to step outside for restaurants, casino and the beach front. Well placed and worth it. Thank you for offering smoking rooms.. A kettle would be nice in the room, even if you are obliged to...

The room was small, however, this was made up with excellent views of the pier and the esplanade. As far as a budget room is concerned one cannot ask for more. It has a tv with a full range of channels for sport and news, an aircon, was clean and neat with free wifi. The only downside? no coffee station...

Room was clean, fluffy white towels. It is basic but for the great price it has everything you need for a short stay and the location and view if you have a sea facing room is beautiful. Staff were super friendly and professional. Internet was great. We would definitely stay here again!

Booked the lodge because of the convenience of it's location. We didn't need anything fancy- just a place to crash the night as we would continue our journey the next morning. I was hoping to wake up to the lovely smell of freshly made breakfast, instead some smart alecs decided to use their room on our floor as a weed...

Easier on the pocket but that meant that we had to endure the noise of the petrol station and taxis that it is located across from. Staff are friendly. Breakfast is optional at R75, but I'd recommend going to Barney's accross the road for a better and more affordable breakfast. Perks are that it is central and walking distance from...
