Many thanks for your review & high score! Unfortunately we have no beach access due to security precautions. Thankfully the beach is a mere 2kms down the road from us. I do hope that you stay a bit longer next time, to enjoy our amazing panoramic view of the Indian Ocean! Best wishes, Jolene Els (Operations Director)

This is our regular stay over when in the area on business. Comfy and clean rooms. Friendly staff. Nice breakfast with an amazing view. Do opt for the top floor rooms with a sea view as it is really special.

We got upgraded to a room with the view when we go there on a Friday and go champaign! The manager and her stuff were awesome. Woukd recommend this place to anybody who seeks peace and tranquillity. I think my recommendation would be to think about providing dinner on weekends. Would visit you guys again.

A beautifully furnished spacious bedroom. What a delightful bathroom. I loved the spa bath. Gorgeous sea view and great breakfast served overlooking the water. There was a faulty tap and a blocked basin drain that needs maintenance - fortunately there were 2 and I was only really using 1.
