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 stayed at Kob Inn between over New Year for 5 nights - wish it could have been more! Violet and Daan are wonderful friendly hosts - thank you for the fabulous morning walk!

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....

It's no wonder people are back year after year to visit this amazing hotel. Great food, atmosphere, staff, owners, beach and fishing. Everyone at the resort makes you feel as if you're family. Will return!

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed our stay. There are lots of things to do - beaches, horseback riding, fishing, just chilling out in general... But at the same time the place is in desperate need of renovations. Among other things, the swings and jungle gym for the kids desperately needs to be replaced with something new. We were...

Hi Thank you for your review. Renovations were being done when you were here and have now been completed. Looking great.

Kobb Inn is situated in the most fabulous spot. The staff and owners and food are all great. That said the place needs a good refurb, it is rundown and a little effort would go a long way in making it perfect.

Beautiful and pristine beaches only used by resort guests. Three great meals a day, great bar and with regards to activities: the place has EVERYTHING. Powerboats, canoes, quad bikes, hiking trails, mountain bikes and horses. Rooms are OK, but it's the resort as a whole that makes it awesome. Kind of structured and old fashioned, but we liked it.
