My husband and I are part of the more elderly visitors to Kob Inn Beach Resort. We have been coming to Kob Inn for every year for the past 6 years, and NEVER have we been disappointed in the service that we were given. My Daughter, Son-in-law and grandchildren have been with us for each vacation. I can therefore vouch...

We first came to the Wild Coast in the 1970s and have stayed in numerous places, from camping on our own in remote corners to luxurious accommodation at well established resorts. Our favourite place is still Kob Inn at Qora Mouth. It is quiet and comfortable in beautiful surroundings offering varied walks along the beaches or in the forest along...

I read the Clugey review and was appalled at what they said. There are just a few things that I would like to say to set the record straight. My husband, my son and I visited Kob Inn for ten days over the December holidays and had a wonderful time. Enoch, the security guard, met us with a warm smile...

We have been holidaying as a family in the wild coast for the past few years - one of the most beautiful places on earth. We decided to try Kob Inn this time and it proved a big mistake. From the moment we arrived we realised that this was going to be a bad holiday. We were met by no-one...

We note the contents of your review. The Wild Coast is truly a beautiful place and enjoyed by a special kind of person. We also note that this is your only review and don’t fully follow your line of reasoning that we are not family friendly and rather for dedicated fishermen. However, we are sorry that you feel this way...

I wanted a simple double room, with a terrace that looked out on to the ocean, at a hotel providing home-cooked meals and resonably priced drinks. And that is exactly what we were given at the Kob Inn. It was like going back in time. There was no TV in the rooms: bliss - and no Wifi:good excuse not to...

We had another lovely stay at this family hotel. Best service, best food, best views! This was our third stay at Kob Inn & we will be back in Dec 2017. Nowhere in SA can you sit in a Pub built on the rocks and get a cold beer within 2 minutes!

We have just returned from a 8 night stay at Kob Inn. What a wonderful experience, from start to finish. We were collected at the airport by Dean and made to feel at home before we had even arrived. The hosts Daan and Violet went out of their way to make us feel welcome, always having time for a chat....
