Positive Reviews

Secure location, not too far from the sea

Travellers describe the neighbourhood surrounding the bed and breakfast as quiet and safe. It is also very convenient to the Gateway Theatre of Shopping, the beach, and restaurants, provided you have your own car or are prepared to use a taxi for the five to ten-minute commute to these attractions.

Pretty grounds with sea views

Most travellers enjoy the landscaped terrace with its pretty, well-maintained pool and braai area. Guests often comment on the relaxing view of the sea to be had from the outdoor lounge area and from many of the rooms.

A warm reception

The front desk personnel have earned many kudos for their warm and friendly customer service. Guests also appreciate their willingness to help with special requests and travel arrangements.

Negative Reviews

Rooms could use a little TLC

Travellers have been disappointed to report that, though neat and tidy, the guest rooms are not quite as luxurious as they are led to expect. Guests often recommend fresh paint and a few updates in decor and bathroom fixtures as areas for improvement. Self-catering travellers have been annoyed to find that though cooking appliances are provided in some rooms, the cupboards lack plates and utensils.

Please keep your voice down

Poor soundproofing between the rooms is a commonly reported irritant.

Breakfast is not to all tastes

Guests comment that the breakfast menu is fairly limited which can become problematic over a longer stay.
