My room was spacious, especially for one, comfortable bed, everything works (once I learnt how to switch the bedside light on at the door! Plenty of wall plugs for charging stuff. Friendly helpful staff, great and more than enough food. And I felt safe!

This is a friendly, well kept guest house that is within 200m of the sea, and 300m of restaurants. Very spacious room, nice guest lounge, and breakfast area, off street secure parking, free WiFi throughout. Nice buffet breakfast with hot breakfast to order. There is a small pool

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We were a famile of six that needed a quiet night before starting on the Garden Route. It was a pleasant experience with clean comfortable rooms, safe parking and with eating facilities within reach. It was too cold for using then pool and you had to walk a while for the food.

Our first night in SA so just needed somewhere close to airport to unwind. Was fine, restaurants close by, kids liked pool even though cold. Nice breakfast & gardens. Could have explored more of the area but we headed out to safari near Amakala & Addo in countryside.
