Positive Reviews

Wonderful coastal location

The hotel's pleasant Eastern Cape location overlooking Algoa Bay and its fine sandy beach is a big hit with most visiting guests. Reviews identify the proximity of the beach, as well as the ease with which you can walk to both the promenade and nearby shopping centre as major plus points.

Guest rooms are a good size

The vast majority of people who stay at this hotel speak very highly about the size of the accommodations. They are, satisfied reviewers note, really rather spacious.

Some fab views

Most travellers rave about the splendid coastal views on hand from this property. Guests say the vistas on display from the hotel's upper floors are nothing short of sensational.

Negative Reviews

Pool isn't a swimming pool

It has been noted that the pool here is disappointingly small. Indeed, many dismayed reviewers say it's actually a plunge pool so swimming is simply not an option.

Lengthy check-ins are commonplace

It's fair to say travellers are distinctly underwhelmed by the efficiency of the checking-in process at reception. Some disgruntled visitors say waits of half-an-hour or more are commonplace.

Pretty poor Wi-Fi

Guests are uniformly unimpressed with the free Wi-Fi provision at this hotel. While some reviewers complain about the signal being weak and intermittent, others are more damning, describing it as virtually unworkable.
