Was a lovely get away with the family. Spa treatment was excellent. Good spread for breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful scenery. Only thing was that we only had hot water on the day we arrived.

Picturesque hotel in a superb location. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful! Internet signal is not great in mobile and hotel supplied internet is slow. Other than that it's an awesome spot. They also have a health spa on the premises with what looked to be reasonable prices

Stayed in the hotel once before and was surprised that the room quality had changed positively. The rooms were neat tidy and modern. Went with my kid and wife who said that their supper was really good.Will be back as the service was great as well.

The price is right rooms are clean and average, the view is great and the food is really good. Service is a bit weak at times but overall its a good hotel, but staff are pleasant. I will continue to stay here.

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
