We really liked our stay at the Kob Inn where we were brought by shuttle from East London to begin our Wild Coast Meander to Morgan Bay. After we stayed at all the other inns/hotels along the route, we liked it a little less, just because the other hotels were all stunning with beautiful settings, making Kob Inn seem a...

Friendly staff in this remote surprise location. Worth a visit. Comfortable rooms and good food. The ideal rest after a long and dusty motorbike ride. Breathtaking sceneries in close proximity. Picture perfect

We spent 2 nights at the resort. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was lots to do, although just relaxing was mostly what we did. Room was well appointed and had a great view of the sea - we saw whales and dolphins. The bird life is fantastic. Three meals daily were included in the full board price...

What a team of wonderful and friendly staff. Efficient book in and personal introduction to facilities. Room #14 was a delight, close to the sea and a lovely view. Nicely appointed with tea and coffee supplied. Meals were very nice and again I must complement the friendliness of the staff. Highly recommended for those that want to relax and unwind...

A beautiful property perched on the rocks overlooking a wild wild coast line. Although I only stayed the night I know the Hotel well as I have visited over a number of years. Daan van Zyl the owner certainly runs an excellent establishment providing true ''old fashioned'' value for money with excellent accommodation and good wholesome food. An excellent holiday...

My wife and I and our 19 month old daughter thoroughly enjoyed our time at Kob Inn. My wife grew up in the Transkei, and I have visited Bulungula and coffee bay further north, but have never visited the well-established southern hotels, many of which have been in existence for between 50- app years. Many of these hotels are institutions,...

We had a wonderful holiday. The staff are efficient and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The setting is amazing, right on the sea, and our 4 year old had the time of her life. The food was good and there was plenty to do. Fishing was good too.
