Stayed there for the Ironman 2017. Friendly staff, clean room and good area. Everything that you need. I would definitely recommend it. Very relaxed environment. Close to the beach and restaurants. Room was more than big enough for me and my parents. Could have fit another person. The air-con beneath room 6 was just a bit noisy. Thanks.

It's like having a home away from home. Comfortable stay with all you would need. Far enough for a peaceful rest and close enough to walk to the closest shop/beach. Service is professional with someone always available to assist.

The location is great and the room was lovely. However, the hostesses first comment was how had we managed to make such a late reservation because they don't take late check ins (it was 8:00pm and we had an unexpected layover in Port Elizabeth so only booked through Booking.com at about 6pm). Made me feel that we were an inconvenience....

Normally when guests are going to be 2,5 hours late they pay us a courtesy call to ensure that somebody will be on hand to check them in and/or to arrange an access code. Fortunately I did pick up on your late booking before leaving for the day and you were not inconvenienced by nobody being here to greet you....
