When I booked this hotel, I saw good ratings on both Booking.com and TripAdvisor. The price was very affordable. When I arrived on site, I could not believe what I saw. The hotel is in a crowded space below a big supermarket, the windows looked broken while curtains seemed missing. I got worried about our safety and security and decided... More

Fridge wasn't working because the cable at the plug where loose (extremely dangerous with children) The glassware was dirty and smelled like pee. There was an old used teabag in the bathroom sink. TV wasn't working. I could... More

The staff members there are very friendly. But the service was very bad, when we arrived the bath tab was blocked we called for assistance, they said they were coming we waited until the day we left. The hotel is very dirty, the curtains are very dirty and even the windows are so dirty.

Everything in the two classic rooms we booked looked very old i.e. dirty furniture, cracked baths, basins and tiles, dirty windows, falling curtains and cockroaches crawling freely. Management should renovate the... More

I booked at Seaboard in July 2014. The place was clean on the sea side. Needs maintenance as most if the things are old. But thanks I enjoyed as it is next t all facilities. Matshediso Ndhlovu Gauteng

After speaking to a reservation (Tresor ) and confirming my booking, I waited for the profoma invoice so payment could be made. I then followed up twice a day later and my calls were not returned, on the third try I was informed that the hotel was fully booked. Beyond angry and disgusted with this kind of service and the...

After a small disagreement at the next door restaurant, Seaboard Hotel and Appartment Guards attacked one of my staff members this evening. All the Hotel's Security Guards joined in...! Disgusting attitude of supervisor when responsible security guards were confronted. Stay well away
