We thought it would be more "upmarket" for the price.Standard rooms need upgrading if you ask this type of price. Noise levels in this block at night unacceptable and got no rest. The restaurant for breakfast was nice and good breakfast.

We needed accommodation near Bredasdorp during the Voet van Afrika race and decided to rather stay at the Dunes in Arniston than in town. Staff is extremely well trained and friendly. We found the accommodation quite odd but figured out that it was probably build for a different purpose and then converted into hotel rooms. The wifi speed can be... More

Great service, impeccable rooms, great service. We loved our stay and pricing was reasonable for the quality received. If you want isolation (Arniston is quite remote) and a break away then this is the place.
