Post-retirement weekend treat! We got in early on Friday and our room was made available at 13:00 - kudos to the check-in staff. Thando in reception was extremely helpful and even arranged tea and coffee for the short while that we waited for our room. The room was large with a king-sized bed and all other amenities, including a jacuzzi....

What a gem nestled in absolute beauty near the wild coast. Superbly friendly staff and a homey feeling. One of the best 3 stars ever in the world. Actually this place can easily pass off as a four star. The food was scrumptiously delicious. Rooms had gorgeous estuary and sea views. Will definitely recommend and will be back.

It has been 2 years since we visited The Estuary Hotel. We did't think we would return because the service had been mediocre and the room so-so. Then we came across a great deal we counted resist and we are glad we took it. There have been massive improvements at the Estuary since our last visit. There is a children's...

I enjoyed my stay although short only one night but facilities are good, beautiful rooms and view. The food was excellent, and the staffs was helpful, the only one thing that needs attention is internet connection and cellphone signal, these are very poor in this venue, so it's difficult to connect . It would be great to get good connectivity...

We arrived at 2pm on a Wednesday to this beautiful hotel. Building is superb with Cape style architecture. A very welcoming atmosphere . Pity it took about an hour to check us in due to some booking misunderstanding. No apology for the inconvenience. Finally we enter our rooms and they were filthy. Pristene location but unaccomodating staff. No proper room...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An idyllic location with breathtaking views of the estuary, sea, beach and breakers. A picturesque walk through the estate affords direct access onto Silver Beach, the main Port Edward bathing beach. The perfect setting for a romantic getaway, family holiday, conference, wedding or special occasion. Brides are spoilt for choice with a traditional wedding in our chapel, a relaxed ceremony on the beautiful garden terrace or an informal affair on the beach. A nursery, play area and games room provide activities that the whole family can enjoy. Wild Waves Water Park at the Wild Coast Sun is a mere 5 minutes away by car and is a popular attraction. The hotel is a golfer's jewel with several prestigious golf courses nearby. There's lots to do or you may want to simply chill at the pool, hang out at the beach or indulge your senses and be pampered at the spa. ... more   less
