If you are looking for the probably only nice hotel on the small beach in Kommetjie here you go. Spectacular beach - nice hotel even though you see that rooms have some years beeing used and some details should be done. Nice staff, all non alcoholic beverages for free, breakfast offerings are nice but not spectacular. Nevertheless a nice spot...

They present themselves as a luxurious boutique hotel. We visited many boutique hotels but this one didn't match the description. It's low cost decorated. It needs better maintenance. Also cleaning needs attention. When your room is on ground floor then your view is a power fence. Staff is very friendly and willing to help you. But the quality of management...

Nice boutique place next to the beach. Stayed for a night in April 2016 and was in some ways let down by the weather as it was rough and stormy. However, we will managed to get a walk on the beach and enjoy the amazing views although we were in the basement room. Staff were friendly and facilities were very...

Excellent location right on the beach. Beautifully equipped rooms, ground floor ones with direct access to the pool, but with limited view. Most quiet location, helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast buffet was generous. No restaurant available in Kommetjie, but a couple of enjoyable options available within 15-20 min. drive. An excellent alternative is to order a dinner menu in the...

Stayed 3 nights in this fabulous beach side property, accommodation excellent and staff could not be more helpful. Pricey but you get what you pay for. Only reservation was Quality of evening meal did not justify its cost.

I really did not want to write a review about this charming boutique hotel on Long Beach as my husband and I would liked to have kept it our secret but thought it was a bit unfair.

What's not to love about this boutique hotel? Unbeatable views with a wonderful service, supreme luxurious comfort, with an attentive but not overpowering staff presence, there to smoothly accommodate all requests.

We had an overnight stay here on our road trip round the Cape. Location is wonderful, right on the beach with a wonderful outlook.
